On today’s episode of The Expat Money Show, our next guest has been a full-time digital nomad and expat for the past 15 years, travelling throughout more than 60 countries and has helped thousands of people move, retire, or work abroad.
At an early age, her mission was to discover an alternative to the typical “American Dream” 9 to 5 way of life. She always struggled with the simple question: ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ and decided that one day she would invent her own job and that she did. Today, her goal is to help others become location independent and stay that way, for as long as their heart desires.
Today, Kristin Wilson is living full-time in her home state of Florida and absolutely loving it. Costa Rica was home for 8 years and Nicaragua for 1 year. Travelling for long periods of time has become the norm for Kristin and in this interview, she walks us through all of the ups and downs of becoming a digital nomad and why choosing this path can be so empowering.
