Passport Heavy’s founder and CEO Jubril Agoro has found the key to living and breathing the digital nomad life for more than 10 years, from gaining more than 240,000 subscribers on his travel and lifestyle channel on YouTube, having his work shown on NoireTV, owning a thriving marketing education company and co-founding a financial education institution, Live Richer Academy.

 

Through trial and error, Agoro figured out the science and perfect combination of hard work and dedication with a side of fun and adventure to live the remote lifestyle many dream of. As the COVID-19 pandemic struck the in-office workforce in 2020, employees worldwide have learned their jobs can be performed from their home office or by the pool. For those looking to maintain the digital lifestyle, Agoro has these tips to keep you on track to freedom from the mundane office anyone can adopt.

 

“First, take a breath. This is going to be a whole new world,” Agoro suggested. “Don’t be one of these people that hops around week after week especially when you are trying to work.” To be in the right mindset to work remotely, you must be disciplined to work and not be distracted by the novelty of a new location. Agoro suggests buying into a monthly Airbnb rental where it is easier to get into a routine of work and travel. “There is a big difference between a vacation traveler and someone who’s a digital nomad”

Secondly, look at the logistics of your travel and work lifestyle. This includes a rental property with space to focus on work, a reliable phone and a place with good WiFi connection, whether that be in your rental or at a local coffee shop. XE is an app Agoro suggests to use to quickly figure out currencies wherever you are in the world. To communicate, download WhatsApp. This app allows remote workers the freedom to interact with people from any country without running the risk of international charges or having cellular service turn off as you move from country to country. Earn cheaper flights by becoming loyal to one airline. The more you travel, the cheaper future flights will be. “A lot of people might see me flying first class or business class and they look up the prices and think, ‘oh my God that flight is $5,000’,” said Agoro. “Ninety-five percent of the time, I did not pay that price. I’m using miles that I’ve earned”

 

The last two tips are to research new areas before moving there and becoming part of the community. Agoro points out how people see the Instagram highlights and forget that while working for travel, you are still working. Researching an area before committing to living there is huge to know what you are getting into. Is the area safe? Is it more than just an Instagram-worthy location? What is the community truly like and how will you contribute and become part of it? These are the questions that need to be answered. Once you have your answers, the choice can become clear.

Amantaka Review

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
