Welcome to Oh, Nomad!
My name is Kate and I am a teacher, writer and digital nomad.
I was born in beautiful Bondi, Sydney, Australia. Despite living in a place world-famous for surfers, sand and glamour; I was always looking over the horizon.
After suffering heartbreak at 21, I made a sudden decision to leave my hometown of Sydney and travel around Australia. A 15,000km journey around the coastline …and I was hooked!
Like many people in their 20s, I balanced work in hospitality and ‘temp roles’ with travel. I volunteered, WWOOFed, and cut costs. Later, as a qualified TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) teacher, I spent years teaching in Latin America for a year or two at a time.
Yet, I wanted even more flexibility.
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 in 2020 to help other teachers, and over time, I could survive on online income alone. A part-time remote teaching position paid the bills and I started using all of my free time to teach myself how to make money online.
Combining multiple income streams; I now live and work wherever I want.
It took me 4+ years to make my dreams of a location-independent lifestyle a reality… luckily, you don’t have to wait! Oh, Nomad! is written to fast-track your digital nomad journey.
