“My entrepreneurial journey started the second I packed up my apartment in Sydney, quit my job (and dreams to climb up the corporate ladder), broke up with my boyfriend of 12 years (yes it was an early mid life crisis) and booked a one way ticket to Thailand to – Reset.
I went through quite a few phases in the time I spent living abroad “finding myself”. From being scared of being alone, to living like a hippy and rocking elephant pants (I facepalm myself everytime those memories drift in). But, ultimately I fell in love with the freedom that travel offered and discovered something that people were calling the “Digital Nomad Lifestyle” and from there on I was hooked, I drank the kool-aid, I was never turning back. So, after months of being away from home and extending what was meant to be just a short holiday, I realised that going back to the 9 – 5 wasn’t something I was prepared to do anymore and so, the real hustle began.”
