Rob Palmer’s life collapsed as a result of the financial meltdown of 2008-9 it cost him his home and marriage, so when his children left home, he decided to start a whole new life as a digital nomad. Prior to that in his early 50’s he was running an online marketing consultancy so it was easy to leverage his skills to create a location-independent income while traveling the world. Blogging and affiliate marketing gave him the freedom to go anywhere, do anything and be anyone he wanted which anyone can also do. Since doing so one of the hardest things is explaining to others how he makes money … people think that if he is making money without a job he must be running some kind of criminal enterprise! He acknowledges the life of a digital nomad is certainly diverse.
Rob offers three helpful tips for others: 1. You are not stuck in your current life…you can create a brand new and better one! 2. It’s never too late…you can change your life in your 50s, 60s and beyond. 3. This is the best time ever to be a mature person – you can look forward to decades of active life and adventure! Rob offers more on his website: gofreelance.com/career-change-after-50/ options anyone can explore for their future life. One of the keys he suggests is that people need to list what they like or enjoy doing, what their skills and strengths are. Rob loves his new life and wants to keep on enjoying it for decades to come and it’s the same for anyone, taking on this life it motivates you to get in shape. Now he feels healthier, fitter and more energetic than he did 10 years ago.
