The Greek Digital Nomad that will seduce you...
Get to know me !
I was born and raised in Greece, surprised? I had what they call “normal life”, a full time job that was enough to live from day to day, waiting every weekend to repeat the same cycle, and so on…
When the crisis of 2008 exploded I was able to keep my job, but they reduced my salary. Basically I worked the same for less, and as you can imagine I lived from day to day. I didn’t know what saving was. During that time I not only had to work hard to live day to day, but I kept myself in the closet so that my true self would not affect my work.
I fantasized about changing my lifestyle, living in a van and traveling, but at the time that was an unattainable dream.
I was aware that there were other alternatives...
but the fear of making mistakes and leaving my comfort zone paralyzed me. That’s how I spent 10 years (I know it’s crazy) until I had to face a new crisis in my life, this time with my partner (but don’t worry, this is not one of those melodramatic stories!). 🤣
I will just say that after ending a relationship of more than 8 years, I was left with nothing. I started to reflect on what had happened in my life for the last 11 years and was when I realized that I threw my best years away! Was I really happy?
Well, no! I didn’t want to imagine my life like this until I retired or until I die. NO! But you know what? Something changed at that moment.
This situation was very shocking because among with all the previous frustrations accumulated for so long, it formed a perfect storm that turned my life upside down. Nothing made sense, but instead of moaning and have a hard time for another decade, I decided to take action. I decided to use all of that as the fuel to drive my new life.
In 2018 I emigrated to Spain.
Without speaking the language or having a job!
I started from scratch in a new country
With the little savings I had knowing that if I wanted different results I could not continue doing the same thing. I had to do something else.
Shortly after arriving here I started to make things happen. For the first time in my life I got a job that allowed me to have a margin of savings and almost without realizing it I incorporated Spanish as my daily language. I started to travel and I felt what it is to decide what I do and what I like, and I understood that this is how it should always be.
I felt really happy for the first time in my life!
Achieving these results motivated me to go for more and I began to think about how to make that old dream of living traveling by motorhome come true. I knew I had the ability, but how to achieve it?
It was at this point that I knew I had to digitize my profession, so I could put my business in my backpack and take it wherever I go.
It was then when I began to study finance and investments to take control over my money, and start generating income online. Soon after I also studied digital marketing, web design and SEO, knowing the opportunities that Internet has to offer.
I started working online designing websites (with WordPress) for clients who understand the importance of the internet and want to go digital and also teaching financial intelligence. Today I continue practicing what I have learned and find myself fulfilling my dream of living in a motorhome, traveling and working from wherever I am.
As an LGBTIQ person
I also know that having conquered my financial freedom has given me the satisfaction of being myself more than ever and I could say that you already know the rest of the story…
