My partner in crime, working hard on this van build!
Speechless.. what a week it has been!
I recently had to write a quick thing for a remote blog about expanding @thetestimonyprojectdc to Colombia and what a lot of my "remote lifestyle" looks like in Colombia. I mean it involves me hustling a lot, drinking lots of coffee and spending a lot of time writing, rewriting, thinking, posting too many whatsapp stories with GIFs and then doing the work. Gracias a mi mentora Kate, por ayudarme creer que es posible y ser mi hincha. Gracias mi amigo @eljoch01 por leer 3 versiones de mis respuestas a estas preguntas y darme crítica, apoyarme durante este flare de dolor y ser mi hincha. #remote#remotework#escritora#writer#contentcreator#writing#hustling#colombia#medellin#remotelifestyle#nomad
Nowadays almost every office job can be turned into a remote job. Unfortunately most big companies don´t allow it since they have to challenge communication and are scared of losing control. We believe that this does not outweigh the benefits of working remotely, like increase of productivity and save of money. What do you believe is most benefitial of working remotely? #remoteluxury#freedomisluxury

Pensive me. 1 human. 1 dog. 5 months. 2 cities. 13 airbnb checkins. Countless of lessons. As I reflect on what life has been in the mathaland, dam! ! Que Flash! Using witchy elements it when something like this:
- AGUA! Be in it! Live near it. Drink more of it. Learn to preserve it. Meditate with it. I joke that I am a reincarnated mermaid but posta! LESSON: When I swim I am. Honour it. - EARTH. Planting seeds has been a theme @theco.social. But here lets talk about bugs! Specifically Roaches. Wait? Did you think I was gonna highlight the here? Or you thought this is about tucas at the end of a joint? Naaaa this is about a 7mm American Cockroach #royalfuckingyuck. Lets just say Sami 1 : Roach 0x3. Bitch came back to life 3 times and called her recruits in the afterlife. LESSON: MadRespect for matha nature - AIR. Patience IS a virtue! I sigh a lot when I realize this time and time again. I recently was taught the value of sending breath to areas of your body you want healed. This comes from the view that breathe is Prana. Life. Chi. I believe this to be fact. I can live with that. LESSON: Live and let die. Let in. Let out. Just breathe - FIRE. Light. Spark. Energy. Combustion. Vibes. Frequency. Electromagnetic fields. Sun! Moon! Universe. Multiverse. Radiance. And not apologizing for any of it!! LESSON: Shine on you crazy diamond!
Lets #fifthhammer this shit! All of these lessons can add up to 1! LOVE! When you peel ALL the layers here, it’s what you get. When it doubt, it’s often the antidote. Is it not? I don’t know. I haven’t figured it all out yet. All I know right now living in duality (dual coasts) has given me a whole new set of eyes. New perspective. And that’s just priceless. Traveling and seeing the world through a different lens, from other culture’s pov can change you. You become more understanding of so much. The common denominator: . Gonna go count sheep now - until next time. Elevate on
You're not a real #digitalnomad if you don't have a photo of yourself outside the office with a laptop and a cup of coffee, right? I stopped by to drop off my receipts on this good Monday, lol.
I held an info session on Sunday about how I have been securing #remotework for over 10 years. Did you miss it? If so, you're in luck, I'm doing two more sessions this week: Session 1: Tuesday 7/16 @8pm EST
Session 2: Sunday 7/21 @11am EST

S L O W D O W N - Live in the moment. Breathe, relax, and savor the moments that will one day disappear. Even the small things will make you happy. Planning your future is great but plans change. You cannot control life!
Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why. — Eddie Cantor
Foodgasm today! If you've never tried roasted radishes then this is your sign to do it.
Take a bunch of radishes, cut them to smaller pieces and toss with garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil. Put them in the oven (200 C) for about 15 minutes. Enjoy with salad or something else
L Å S T E A M - Shoutout to @lasteamsverige for installing the security system of the #recordingwagon. Their system has everything, including hatches, doors, etc. And yes, I triggered the alarm a couple of times which almost gave me a heart attack . Luckily, I'm still alive!
I have had success:
landing a six-figure remote job
landing THREE freelance contracts that covered my living expenses
convincing my employer to let me work remotely AND helping 5 other people do the same so they could travel the world **body rolls**
I have actually been landing remote gigs since 2008, way before #digitalnomad was a buzzword.
Wanna chat about how I did it and what you need to make that happen for yourself? Let's talk!
I'm hosting an information session THIS SUNDAY at 1pm EST. Click the link in my bio to sign up!
