Bringing Family Duties & Nomadic Lifestyle Together
Did you know that by 2022, 50% of the working population will perform in a remote environment?
Indeed, the 9-to-5 routine fails to appeal to the new generations in the workforce.
More and more people want to experience more freedom – in terms of choosing their location, exploring the world, and deciding on their schedule.
As a result, nomadic professionals are showing a new way of working; not only on the go but also as profitably as if they were in an office – and sometimes even more!
Unfortunately, your nomadic lifestyle can make it difficult to stay on top of your family duties, especially if you have relatives who depend on you – whether children or aging parents.
There are, thankfully, a few tips you can use to combine your responsibilities with your remote lifestyle.
Quitting The Office: How does it work?
First of all, if you want to quit the constraints of your office-based job, you need to think outside the box.
It’s not a matter of finding the perfect job for your interests; you need to create the next opportunity.
In other words, you can’t afford to wait until you spot an exciting listing on a job portal.
Quitting your 9-5 implies that you can find another source of income to support your family.
Therefore, it’s a good plan to start budgeting ahead of embracing your nomadic lifestyle, so that you can effectively decrease your expenses. Then, you need to build a profitable career outside of the office.
Starting a blog is a preferred approach as it is inexpensive to start and it has the potential to generate profit at no cost.
What about your parents?
You might lead a nomadic lifestyle, but you can’t easily take your family with you.
Your parents, siblings, cousins, uncles, and aunts are likely to stay behind.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t keep in touch.
On the contrary, nowadays, modern technology makes it easy to stay in the loop. A Whatsapp group, for instance, provides a space where you and your family can exchange about everyday events in real time. You stay connected despite the distance via photos, messages, gossips, and in-jokes.
Sometimes, it’s all you need to feel close to your family even when you’re far away.
However, there are situations when you need expert services to help your family.
When an aging relative goes through a difficult situation, they might need fiduciary services to help them manage their finances and assets, for instance.
The process can prevent unnecessary troubles while letting you pursue your lifestyle with a clean mind.
How do the kids go to school?
Many parents worry about how a nomadic lifestyle could affect their children, especially when it comes to their education.
However, homeschooling can be a practical solution, especially as you can find online programs with assignments and curriculum to make sure your kids don’t end up falling behind their studies.
Additionally, if you’ve chosen to move abroad for an extended period, you can also consider international schools which offer a self-contained structure.
The nomadic lifestyle is often praised for young adults but seems to be abandoned once family responsibilities come in question.
However, you can find the assistance and services you need to keep your family safe on the road, or at home.
There’s one question left to ask: Are you ready to quit your 9-5 job?
