Digital Nomad Tips: How To Be Productive When You're Working In Paradise

Staying on top of your game while you’re globe trotting? It’s a serious challenge.

I know, #FirstWorldProblems, right?

But really! Those who daydream about making a living online while exploring the world are in for a surprise: work-life balance is no easier to achieve when you’re bombarded daily with new sensory experiences and the promise of adventure.

And then there’s tequila! Ugh, Tequila.

Anyway, we’ve both developed some pro techniques for handling this careful balance between enjoying life (which is the point of this lifestyle, right?) and getting shit done.
