Working a regular 9-5 office-based job is nice. It can help you provide enough money for your family. At the same time, it can earn you an honorable reputation in the professional world.

Granted you perform well, your office-based employment can even help you climb the corporate ladder. Doing the same thing for virtually every day for some time can be exhausting, though.

So if you do get tired of your regular lifestyle, why not make a radical change? Perhaps, you might want to become a digital nomad.

Here are some reasons why you should consider it.

1. Virtually Limitless Income Opportunities

Firstly, there’s the fact that the earning potential of digital nomads is virtually limitless. Compared to a regular 9-5 job with fixed salary package offers, you’re in charge of how much money you make if you’re living a digital life.

You can choose to make 5x more than a regular office employee. Or you could make 10x that. It’s all up to you.

Another great thing about it is you’ll get paid for the amount of effort you invest — no more, no less. If you work less, you’ll get paid less. And if you work on a lot more projects, you’ll get paid a lot more.

2. Improved Productivity

A boost in productivity is another reason to consider becoming a digital nomad.

Since the matter of productivity is subjective, it’s understandable that you tend to work better according to your own rules. So there’s no reason for you to force yourself to give your 100% at work if you don’t feel like it.

If you work better early in the morning, then get up early and work. You have that freedom.

On the flip side, work at night if the night owl in you unleashes your productive side around this time. If you can handle starting and finishing more than 10 projects within the night, then make it happen.

Consequently, you are more productive. And you’re a time-saver.

3. Live & Work However You Wish

Then there’s the highly-autonomous nature of living as a digital nomad. It’s advantageous because you get to be your own boss.

Although last on the list, this is a top reason why many digital nomads choose to live the way they do. Because of their particular lifestyle, they’re in full control.

Living as a digital nomad offers you unparalleled flexibility. So long as you meet deadlines, have determination, and follow up on responsibilities, you’re free to do everything you want. You get to decide the place where you live and work, time of day you wake up, projects to work on, days you should go on vacation, and more.

You can work as an independent freelancer and do the task you’re good at.

Another option is to form a team and build your own company. This seems fun and you can use and maximize the power of collaboration.

It can be like you’re all working in a traditional office setting. You can create personalized ID badges for your team members and/or go on a team-building road trip anytime.


If you can handle living a digital life, then make it a reality. Quitting your regular 9-5 job to become a digital nomad is promising. It can open the door to great, great possibilities.
