In the 3rd episode of The Perspectives Podcast we talk to Patricia Vera who is a digital nomad. She works as a freelancer in digital marketing while traveling the world. Many of us dream of working remotely and traveling, but we are not sure what this is like or where to start.
Luckily, Patricia was kind enough to answer my questions about her experience and give some tips for the people that are interested in this career path. In this episode she tells us more about:
- how she got started
- how she learned digital marketing
- how she stays motivated
- her advice to any aspiring freelancer digital marketer
- the illusions social media creates
- how to use social media so it has a positive effect on you
- how she combines traveling with working for herself
Here are some ideas I loved from this podcast:
If you want to work as a digital marketer, it’s important to always try to learn something and stay up to date with the trends in this field.
You have to be persistent and find ways to motivate yourself.
Social media may make us believe that other people or their lives are perfect. But it’s important to remember that nobody is perfect. Nobody is happy 24/7. And if they are having a great time all day long, they won’t have time to post about it.
When traveling to a new city, take your time to explore and enjoy it.
