Welcome to Oh, Nomad!
My name is Kate Zarb, born and raised in beautiful Bondi, Australia.
I am an online business owner, teacher, blogger and full-time digital nomad.
After suffering my first heartbreak at 21, I made a sudden decision to leave my hometown and travel around Australia. A 35,000km journey around the entire coastline of the country later …and I was hooked! Like many young people in their 20s, I initially balanced work in hospitality and temporary office roles with travel. I volunteered and WWOOFed to cut costs.
Later, I became a qualified TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) teacher and spent a number of years working in countries such as Mexico and Colombia.
Yet, I wanted even more flexibility in where and how long I could stay ‘on the road’.
Grounded due to the global pandemic, I threw myself into learning how I could be one of these mythical, fancy ‘digital nomads’ that I’d heard so much about.
I tried (and failed) to successfully build a nomad-friendly income, with my first attempts at freelance online teaching ending in only a trickle of interest and a casual gig tutoring for just under $20 AUD/hr. I knew there was a better way.
I persisted and kept learning. I built teachenglishonline.com.au during 2020 to help other teachers like me and slowly, over time, I began to be able to survive on my online income. I was offered a part-time remote teaching position and started using all of my free time to teach myself how to blog and make money.
Combining multiple income streams, I am now able to live and work wherever I want.
It took me more than three years to make my dreams of a location-independent lifestyle a reality …but you don’t have to wait!
