Valerie Conners and Ayaz Nanji are pursuing their American dream by giving up traditional markers of success because they want to experience the world.
By all outward appearances, they seemed to be living the dream – great jobs and an upscale lifestyle in New York. However, for these two Internet marketers, something was missing. Four years ago, they gave up their home base and most of their possessions to live and work location-independently as “digital nomads.” Consistent with their personal mantra, “Let’s go have an adventure,” they move to a new location every few months in attempt to experience as much of the world as possible.
“I personally have no idea where I’ll be in 10 or 20 years and that’s really a change for me. I was someone who, when I went to college and then graduated, I always had a map,” Ayaz said.
It remains to be seen whether their location-independent lifestyle will be sustainable long term.
