I've worked remotely from 5 continents over the past 4 years in roles related to social media marketing, branding, graphic design, photography, video editing, promotions, public speaking, and event planning. I've worked with a variety of travel brands and companies such as World Nomads, Intrepid Travel, TravelCon, & many tourism boards as part of my role as Nomadic Matt's Creative Director.
👩🏼💻NEW JOB, NEW ME! Over the past 3.5 years, I’ve been working with the incredible team at @nomadicmatt. This was my absolute dream job for the longest time, but now it’s time for my next adventure! I’ll be starting a 👩🏼💻new role👩🏼💻 as Content Writer & Community Manager at another company next week (will share more on that soon!) 🎉 I'm extremely grateful to have been part of a brand and business that truly changes lives. Reflecting on my time at Nomadic Matt I've had the opportunity to... ✅ - Help plan and market our first ever travel media conference, TravelCon! ✅ - Lead sessions to hundreds at TravelCon 2018 & 2019, overcoming my fear of public speaking! ✅ - Travel to South Africa & Madagascar and create content with our awesome affiliate partner @intrepidtravel ✅ - Work remotely from destinations around the world like Paris, Amsterdam, NYC, LA, Austin, Budapest, & more! ✅- Attend awesome events like @womenstravelfest, @wds.official , & the NYT travel show ✅ - Meet some of my best best friends because of my ability to work remotely and be a part of the travel industry.. @theclumsytraveler @theangelajones 🥺❤️!!! So grateful!! ✅ - Have one of my travel photographs featured as the cover art of Matt’s latest book, Ten Years a Nomad! And last but not least, work with the amazing people that supported and challenged me along the way. Thank you, Matt, Erica, Carmela, Candice, Chris 1 & 2 and all of the fantastic partners and affiliates I worked with over the years - lookin at you @bexshapiro ! Can't wait to see what this next chapter has in store 🚀 !! P.S. I’ll still be working remotely, too! #remotework #remotelife #remoteworker #digitalnomadlife
Some old favorites from #Madagascar that I never shared. I’ve been spending a lot of time going through and organizing all of my travel photos and I’m feeling very grateful to have seen so much of the world. I have no clue when we’ll all be able to travel again but I do know this will have us savoring each trip even more when we get the chance. For now, stay home & healthy friends! If you need anything I’m always here to talk remote work, life, travel, etc! #bbctravel #madagascar #afarmedia #africatravel #bbcworld #tlpicks #matadornetwork #remotework #digitalnomad
With everything going on right now, I’m very grateful to have a remote job. And it feels weird to talk about anything else. This pandemic is majorly affecting the travel industry - obviously - and I’m sure some of my work will suffer. However, the ability to work from home all the time, and especially during a time like this, is a huge privilege that I’ve been thinking about all week. Many of my friends and family members are being sent home from work, told not to come in, and haven’t been able to make their projected monthly income due to events being cancelled/etc. Now might be a great time to start offering remote services if you can. Regardless of how long this thing lasts, I think having a skillset that allows you to a) work from home and b) obtain multiple streams of income is going to be beneficial no matter what. Here are some ideas for how you can make some extra cash from home right now: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - Create a profile on sites like Upwork, Fiverr, Verblio, Zirtual and/or FancyHands and offer services like writing, virtual assisting, graphic designing, and more. - Offer up services to friends and family who may need help managing their social media - Sign up to teach English or tutor online via a service like VIPKid, Chegg Tutors, and Tutors.com - Review websites online with UserTesting.com or take online surveys with Survey Junkie and make some easy money - SELL STUFF! Go through your closet and start selling old clothes on Poshmark or DePop or even your instagram page! Also goes for anything you might be able to sell on Facebook Marketplace or Ebay, etc. On top of those things you can get started with right now, If you want to look for a more longterm remote job, I highly recommend signing up for remote work newsletters through Pangean.com and RemoteWoman.com. They post new remote jobs daily! Let me know how you’re doing in light of this whole thing. Has your job been affected? Are you currently working from home? How are things for you all? #remotejobs #coronavirus #covid19 #digitalnomad #remotelife #wfh #workfromhome
ARIZONA is now in my top 5 favorite US States! The other 4 are (in no order) California, Colorado, Oregon, Michigan :) - for now! Last weekend I went on a super fun girls road-trip around Arizona and can definitely say it is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited. The reddish orange rocks, purple sunsets, acres of cacti, picturesque canyons, and endless deserts were truly out of this world!!! I loved it soooo much. We traveled around the state for 3 days, so I wanted to share some of my favorite stops along the way incase you are planning on visiting this incredible state...and if you’re not, you should be! Sedona: one of the prettiest little mountain towns with tons of cute shops, restaurants, great local beer, and amazing nearby hiking trails. I NEED to go back ASAP! Page: Here is where you will find the famous Antelope Canyons, Horseshoe Bend, and tons of nearby hikes: Lake Powell Park, Toad Stools, Wirepass to Buckskin Gulch, and sooo many more! You’re really close to the Utah border here as well, so you can check off another state while you’re at it! The Grand Canyon: we actually didn’t get a chance to visit because the day we planned to go it was raining, but I KNOW this stop is definitely worth it based on everything I’ve seen and heard - I’ll just have to save it for next time! I’ll share a few more of my favorite AZ pics over the next few days so that if this photo of Horseshoe Bend at sunset hasn’t convinced you to visit, hopefully the next few willl! Now a little travel life update: I don’t have much travel planned the rest of the year right now, just lots of remote working from California! Luckily there is enough in this amazing state to keep me busy while I figure out where the rest of the year will take me. But my next and only planned trip right now is to New Orleans in May for @travel_con!!!! Who is coming? I’ll be speaking on the topic of Pinterest Marketing yet again! I hope to see some of you guys there! If you haven’t gotten a ticket yet - you can get $50 off with code: SPEAKER50! #Arizona #TravelCon20 #VisitArizona #VisitUtah #remotework #remotelife #digitalnomadgirls #digitalnomadlife #remotejobs
HI! I changed my name on IG! I originally created “all abroad” (AKA doitallabroad) to be a source for well, doing it ALL abroad - interning, studying, working, backpacking, etc. But as my focus has shifted to more remote work & working while traveling, I felt this name was a better fit - at least for instagram. My blog will remain at doitallabroad.com (that domain authority is helpful!) and I will still be sharing travel tips & tips on how to work abroad and all that fun stuff on the blog & here. So WHY do I love remote work so much enough to dedicate a whole account to it? Here are a few of my favorite things about it: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🚗 NO COMMUTE! This is obviously not only better for the environment, but better for my wallet. ⠀⠀ 👩🏼💻 MORE FREEDOM! I love putting in my 8-hrs a day from anywhere. Coffee shops, coworking spaces, my bed, outside, hotels, etc! The ability to switch up my environment helps me stay motivated and creative. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 😴 NAPS. Honesty, a mid-day lunchtime nap can really help with productivity. And it’s possible to do this when you work from home! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✈️ Your access to the job market isn’t limited by where you live! ⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🧠 FOCUS. Working alone can sometimes get a little lonely, but it actually helps me focus much more than I did when I had people coming up to me all the time in my office job. Now you know about the name change and why I want to share the power of remote work with the worlddddd. My main focus here will still be sharing ways to work remotely and/or how to work remotely better. I also would love to connect with more remote workers (if you’re on the west coast let me know!) Anyways, that’s all I’ve got for now! Happy Tuesdayyyyy!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀ #remotework #remotelife #remoteworkers #digitalnomadlife #nomadlife #digitalnomad #remote #digitalnomadgirls
HAPPY 2020! 🥳 It was another incredible year of working remotely. This lifestyle has gifted me so many experiences, friends and lessons that I wouldn’t otherwise have, and I’m feelin’ super grateful. I started 2019 living in NYC for a few months & had the best time getting to know the subway, seeing @lastweektonight LIVE, eating the best halal food from my favorite food truck in union Sq, and attending tons of fun events. I flew to Barcelona for a week with friends and then “lived” and worked in Paris for 6 weeks where I met @amazingrace96 who has the coolest job ever as an Au Pair there - a great way to work overseas y’all! I traveled through Morocco for the first time with @atwbeauty & @erica.virvo and met the most inspiring group of women & camped under the stars in the Sahara. In June, I gave a talk on Pinterest & FB marketing at @travel_con for the second year & spent some quality time with the NM team🥰. Who is coming to the event in May 2020? Then, @nomadicmatt’s book was released and my photography was chosen by the publisher for the cover! They spelled my name wrong in the credits... buttt it was still so cool to hold a book with a photo I took on it! I went BACK to Paris to celebrate @theclumsytraveler & @theangelajones birthdays and we had a trip we will never forget wandering the lavender fields in Provence, exploring little coastal towns, and dancing in the streets of Paris at 4am. I visited Miami almost too many times to count in 2019 (I blame @theclumsytraveler) but had the best time with her and @theangelajones and @thelovelyescapist in that crazy city! I also “lived” in San Diego for two months where I spent my 25th bday with my beautiful mom @dana_news8 🥰 & fell in love with California all over again. Other highlights of the year included attending @fantastic.fest in Austin, road-tripping the California coast with @alissacorera, experiencing Paris at Christmas, & finishing off the year at an Airbnb estate my friends and I rented in West Virginia! Of course there were many awful experiences among these great ones. But I’m thankful for it all & sooo ready for 2020. Thank you all who made 2019 the year that it was. 🎉
It’s #GIVINGTUESDAY ✈️🌍💕 & you all know how important travel is to me - ESPECIALLY in regards to education. For my first few international trips, I was privileged enough to study abroad. Those trips changed my life by expanding my worldview in ways I could never have done in my classrooms back home in Michigan. Not only was I able to learn about other cultures and history by being immersed in a foreign place, but those trips also helped me become an even more compassionate, self-aware, understanding, open-minded, and confident human. Honestly, travel has made me a better person in every way. But not everyone has the same opportunity. That’s why I love Nomadic Matt’s initiative with FLYTE (@take_flyte_org), our community charity! FLYTE helps students in under-served communities expand their cultural, academic, and social horizons by providing an international trip to an entire classroom. Thanks to the community we've sent more than 70 high school students from across the country on transformative educational trips! ✈️🌍💕 And we want to send more and more! Please check out this amazing cause and consider making even a small donation to help these students gain the unmatched knowledge and perspective that is provided through seeing the world! You can donate directly through my IG stories today or visit donate.takeflyte.org/GivingTuesday2019. We’re almost half-way to our fundraising goal and every little bit helps! #traveleducation #traveliseducation #lifechangingtravel #donatetoday #takeFLYTE #studyabroadprogram #studyabroadbecause
Feeling very grateful for all the friends I’ve made through travel + remote working 🥰! I’ve met so many people thanks to social media & the internet over the past 3 years. Since I always try to share some useful tips on this page, here are some of the ways I’ve met people while traveling & whenever I’ve moved to a new city: When I backpacked around Europe while working a few years ago, I used @couchsurfing hangouts in every city to meet locals & other travelers! When I moved to San Diego & NYC for a few months I used @bumblebff to meet new girlfriends! While traveling through France I used @eatwith to share home-cooked meals with locals around the country! I’ve also used a variety of Facebook groups for digital nomads/remote workers/travelers to meet up with women in different cities around the world! The @girlslovetravel FB group helped me have one of the best days ever in Budapest with new friends! ALSO - in case you missed it - @nomadicmatt just launched a global meetup program for travel enthusiasts called The Nomadic Network! I’ll be at the Detroit meetup next week on Dec. 2nd! Stay tuned for more cities coming in 2020! Visit thenomadicnetwork.com for more info! Oh and how could I forget INSTAGRAM! I met all these amazing women because of Instagram! I also love going to events & conferences and have met tons of people at places like @womenstravelfest, @travel_con, @wds.official, @fantastic.fest, & others. When you work alone 90% of the time, making the extra effort to get out and meet new people is so important. Hope this helps any remote workers out there! #remoteworker #remotework #digitialnomadgirls #digitalnomad #digitalnomadlife #remoteworklife #meetups #girlslovetravel #ladiesgoneglobal #wearetravelgirls #entrepreneurlife #travelwhileworking
Spilling the teaaaa🍵 on how I’m able to travel so often*. Two words: SIDE HUSTLE. Many of you know that I work full time with @nomadicmatt & co. But I also take on a lot of “side hustles”/odd jobs to help fund my travel addiction. I’ve had MANY #sidehustles over the years. Today I want to share some of my favorite & FUN ways to make extra 💰(& how much I’m able to make w/each!) to help you find your own! Dog walking/sitting: I’ve used both @wag & @roverdotcom to walk dogs and dog/cat sit. I was able to make an extra $200-$300 per month (and could have made more!) Each 30min walk can earn you $12-$15. Just 5 walks per week = $240 per month to hang w/ dogs! Being an extra on a film/TV set: This is one of my favorite ways to make extra $! It’s so fun to be on set. To find these opportunities, visit your state’s tourism site, newspaper ads, local/regional casting agencies (that’s how I found my roles in Michigan) or sites like backstage.com. I was able to make around $100 per day! Production Assistant for local TV: I frequently work weekends as a production assistant/runner during broadcast sport events. For this, you likely have to know someone to get the “in” but if you know anyone who works in any type of production, ask them! It’s an easy gig & pays around $30 an hour! Working random events: I’ve worked as a bartender, hostess, booth rep, set-up crew at a variety of events. Usually I’m connected to events via my network of friends/family but you can also go to your local craigslist “gigs” section to find events that are hiring! I make around $100-150 per event. Part-time VA/social media manager: If you have digital skills, you can find virtual assistant & social media management work on sites like @upworkinc & @fiverr (but start looking within your network!) I’ve made up to $800 a month doing this. Selling clothes on @poshmark/@depop: I’ve made over $500 selling my old clothes on these apps! Online tutoring with @thevipkidlife! This takes a little more work to apply, but can help you earn around 1k per month by tutoring foreign students for just 2hrs a day! Do you have a fun side hustle?! What is it! #remoteworker #digitalnomadgirls #remotejobs
👩🏼💻 REMOTE WORK JOB OPPORTUNITIES 👩🏼💻 Last week I posted a story about a few remote work job opportunities I had heard of that I wanted to refer people to. I was surprised by how many people reached out across all of my social channels - including a lot of people who I hadn’t spoken to in years, and some people I’ve never met! The influx of inquiries I received made me realize that even though these opportunities weren’t a fit for everyone, many people are VERY interested in the concept of working remotely in general. In fact, according to @flexjobs, remote work has increased by 44% in the last 5 years (and over 90% in the last 10!). It’s pretty clear that people want more flexible work conditions, and employers are adjusting to this demand. If you’re one of my friends or acquaintances who wants to know more about how to land that first gig, I just published a blog post about how to get your first remote job - complete with all of the resources that have helped a few of my friends land their remote gigs! *LINKKK IN BIOOOOOOOO* Also if you read this far I’m curious: if you are a remote worker currently or want to work remote in the future - what do you do/what do you want to do? Let me know! #remoteworklife #digitalnomadgirls #digitalnomad #jobopportunities #productivityplanner #remoteworkjobs #digitalnomadjobs #accountabilitypartner #remotework #remoteworker #digitalnomadtips #remoteworktips #remotelife #remotejob #girlsLOVEtravel #ladiesgoneglobal #wearetravelgirls #coworking #flexjobs #remotehow
NEPENTHE, BIG SUR! This is my favorite restaurant to eat/drink at when you drive up the California coast. I meaaannnnn just look at these views! Highly recommend a visit here if you’re ever in Big Sur. Just be prepared for a wait - or arrive when it opens at 11:30am like we did! Another must in the Big Sur region: Visit Pfeiffer State Park Beach. Truly was heaven on earth. In the off/shoulder season you’re more guaranteed to get a parking spot as we were able to. But in peak season may-sept, we were told they turn away 1,000 cars A DAY! View my stories to see more what Pfeiffer State Beach looked like! There are also plenty of other hikes, waterfalls, and turn-off viewpoints that you’ll find along your drive so just be prepared to pull over at random! #bigsur #nepenthe #nepenthebigsur #bigsurcoast #bigsurcalifornia #californiaroadtrip #raimlisscalitrip #californiadreaming #pacificnorthwest #pacifichighway
October/November is my favorite time of year to travel. Similar to our time in Yosemite last week, Joshua Tree was a dream to experience in late October! This is the Cholla Cactus Garden which was the perfect place to watch the sunset on our second night in the park before staying at @purtyyurty - one of the most remote/unique Airbnb’s I’ve stayed at! The view of the night sky from our Yurt was insaneee. Other suggestions for Joshua Tree: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - bring lots of water because it is scarce once you enter the park - there is no cell reception so like try to live in the moment will ya?... ENJOY!! - there is no lodging inside the park (only camping) but there are so many quirky/fun Airbnb options around the area! - make sure to have a great road trip playlist to drive through the park with 🎶 ! I suggest @alissacorera‘s Fall ‘19 playlist on Spotify hehe. #joshuatreenationalpark #joshuatree #chollacactusgarden #chollacactus #joshuatreeairbnb #purtyyurty #californiaroadtrip #raimlisscalitrip #remotework #digitalnomadlife #californiasunset
YOSEMITE IN THE FALL! 🍂🍁🏞 Part 5/6 of my road trip around California last week that I’ll be sharing more about! I truly think this has to be the best time of year to visit the park. I went 4 years ago in the summer and it reminded me of what Disneyland must be like (it was a hot, overcrowded experience). BUT, in October, Yosemite is perfect. There weren’t too many people and the temperature was ideal for hiking and exploring! This is Valley View (swipe for the full view), where you can see many of Yosemite’s main attractions like El Capitan & Bridalveil Fall - I like this view better than Tunnel View, which is the same view but from a higher vantage point. Other favorites if you only have 48hrs in the park like we did include Glacier Point (at sunrise or sunset!), Mist Trail, and Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias! In 10 days we visited LA, Joshua Tree, Santa Barbara, the Big Sur region, Yosemite, and San Francisco. It was an actual vacation for me, which was a nice break and exactly what I needed to get refocused on my work for the rest of the year…P.S Big @nomadicmatt announcement in my stories! #yosemitevalley #valleyview #yosemitenps #yosemitenationalpark #californiaroadtrip #raimlisscalitrip #visitcalifornia #sheisnotlost #digitalnomadgirls #remoteworkers #remoteworklife #remotework #digitalnomadlife #roadtripping
My favorite things to do in one of my favorite cities - 🌮☀️🍺 AUSTIN, TX: I love #Austin so much I tried to move there! Even though that didn’t work out (see my last post), I still was able to visit last week to attend a really cool film festival, @fantastic.fest!! Aside from the amazing festivals and conferences that seem to always be happening around the city, these are some of the best things to do while you’re there: 1) Mount Bonnell/Covert Park: a super fun little park to view the Colorado River and the city + surrounding hills! 2) Food Trucks: there are sooo many food trucks in Austin with pretty much any cuisine you want! Rainey Street has a great collection of food trucks! 3) Nightlife: you have to experience the live music, speakeasys, and fun bars that this city has. I don’t think I’ve ever seen more people out on a Friday night than I saw here last week! Tip: super fun local bar @whislersatx recommended by @nomadicmatt! 4) Breakfast tacos!!! I love @torchystacos and @veracruztacos !! The Austin airport South Terminal also had an amazing breakfast taco food truck! 5) Stay up to date on festivals, conferences, and events in this city. It ALWAYS has something going on. Anyone going to ACL next weekend? I wish I was! 6) Go see a movie at Alamo Drafthouse (@drafthouse). These exist all over the country but my favorite one is in Austin on South Lamar. It’s such a fun way to see a movie. You can order an entire menu of food right to your seat and they honestly have the best popcorn and milkshakes EVER! Their pizza is also amazing. It’s just such a cool place! Go! Ok that’s all for now on Austin but I truly love this city and can never get enough of it (except I could do without the heat sorry)! Back to California for now! #austin #austintexas #austincitylimits #austintexasthings #atx #atxeats #atxblogger #austinblogger #austinblog #austinguide #fantasticfest #alamodrafthouse #igaustintexas #walltraveled #murals
So I was supposed to move down to Austin, TX today. But @airbnb kind of screwed me over. My host for my 2-month stay cancelled on me less than 48 hours before I was meant to arrive for the long-term stay. I had travel arrangements planned, @fantastic.fest film festival tickets booked for my birthday later this month, and a ton of other work plans while I was meant to be in the city. Airbnb came back and offered $197 dollars travel credit to help me find a new place. But of course, the only places available so last minute we’re THOUSANDS of dollars more than my original booking. I went back and forth with them for a while and they finally agreed to wave booking fees and give me the “maximum credit available” of $500. Which sure that’s great but again, doesn’t cover the difference for what available options were left. I have used Airbnb for YEARS. And I do love the service and how it can make travel more affordable. But I also hate how in recent years it’s become such a business for owners and has displaced locals in cities around the world by driving up rent costs. Then this happens and I see how the service favors owners much more than those who are booking. If I were to have cancelled my booking last minute - I would have lost my entire deposit. But the host incurs very little fees and gets to walk away pretty unscathed, while I’m left scrambling to find a place to live for the next two months! It’s been a pretty crazy situation! Maybe head back to Cali now? We’ll see! This situation has given me a lot to think about when using the service in the future - which I’m sure I probably will still have to. I’ve never used alternatives like @vrbo or @homeaway.it but maybe ill give them a try. I’m also a huge fan of @bookingcom. Might just be time to sign a real lease and stop the crazy nomadic life. Does anyone else have any Airbnb horror stories?
