An Excerpt from My eBook

Freelancing on the Road:
A Digital Nomad Guide

Preface

Digital nomad is a term that seems to have come out of nowhere, even to me, and I am a digital

nomadism is the marriage of digital work and travel. And thanks to the information side of
the digital revolution, there is a wealth of resources available (as well as package deals and
other schemes) to help you get your very own #digitalnomadlife.

Later my travels would take me back to Asia and Europe, onwards to South America and Central America, and of course, to many destinations in the United States and Canada—sometimes with my computer, sometimes without.

Long Time, No Read

Well, not travelling (that much). The fall of 2014 brought a new adventure—condo ownership. And condo ownership demanded a moratorium on travel as I replenished the coffers.

Making An Ass Out of U and Me

I recently finished a project in which I had to follow my own advice. The author had reversed the use of presume and assume in the same paragraph. It didn’t sound right to me, but I couldn’t put my finger on why it wasn’t right, so I looked it up!
