Yes, it’s true!
We’re trading in our Philadelphia row home for a life on the road. We have lots to tell you about and we’ll get into more details with future blog posts/videos, but here are some initial notes about our plans:
Why we decided to become digital nomads
If you’ve been following us for awhile, you’ll know that both Mark and I share a love for traveling. Early in our relationship, we set a goal to travel to one new country a year. Last year, we started a travel blog to document the places that we’ve visited and much to our surprise, it really took off. We’ve grown quite a following and people seem to really enjoy the content we share. While Wicky is still our main focus, traveling full time will give us plenty of new content to share on our blog.
Our business is done almost exclusively online, so there isn’t a reason for us to be tied to the Philadelphia area. Although we love the city and the people we’ve met and worked with over the years, we’re excited to explore other parts of our country and help entrepreneurs from all over get brands and websites that they love.
How digital nomad life will work for us
We plan on traveling the US by car and staying in AirBnb’s or extended stay hotels. Our goal is to travel full time for at least 6 months, then reassess while we visit my parents at their new house in Nevada. We considered doing an RV or van life, but decided it wasn’t right for us at the end of the day. Besides traveling from city to city every few weeks, our day to day life probably won’t change much. We’ll still be working the same hours during the week, cooking our own meals, and exploring on the nights and weekends.
How our business will change
Luckily, our business will change very little. We will still offer the same branding, web design and SEO services that we do now. All hosting and maintenance packages for our current web design clients will stay the same.
The big difference is that we will no longer be able get involved in a lot of the events or networking groups in the Philadelphia area. We also will no longer be able to do in person meetings. This makes us sad because we’ve met some great people and participated in so many wonderful events over the years we’ve lived here. The good news is, we will still be able to stay in touch online.
I think that’s it for now. We’ll fill you in with more details very soon. We’re incredibly excited for this new season of life and hope you follow along with us. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out. Thank you for your support.
