Welcome to Year Disrupted! We're a resource for people who want to interrupt their 9-5 life, travel the world and make money while they do it! Follow our journey for insights, tips, and plenty of stories along the way.

In February of 2019, we found a huge discrepancy between what we were doing and what we wanted to do. We made a list of what we wanted to do and who we wanted to be over the next 12 months only to find that it had nothing to do with our current jobs and day to day grind.

A few months later, we had booked a one-way ticket to Colombia, on a mission to spend 2020 traveling the world all while generating income. We're so excited about this experiment that we want to bring you, our readers, along with us so we can share the tips, tricks, and insights that we learn along the way.

Be sure to follow our journey on Instagram @Yeardisrupted to see our adventure in color. We also have a blog: https://www.yeardisrupted.com/ which gives more information on the cities we visit and other helpful tips/resources for people who are interested in disrupting themselves.

    How to be Tuned Into Yourself as a Digital Nomad with Taylor Wallace

    How to be Tuned Into Yourself as a Digital Nomad with Taylor Wallace

    How do you think about your goals? How do you feel confident about who you are and what you're working towards? In episode 22, we take a deep dive into mindset with Taylor Wallace.
    As we all know, living as a Digital Nomad is so much more than going on a sabbatical or extended vacation. While we've spent a lot of time discussing how to budget, how to work effectively, etc..., it's also super important to be aligned with who you are and what you want.
    In this episode, we talk to Taylor Wallace of The Fit Founder as she discusses how to be in tune with yourself. This not only helps you get the most out of your journey, but it also helps you get through the obstacles and the bad days.
