Welcome to Square Hippie!

Non-techie turned digital nomad! 

Do you dream of becoming location independent so you can travel around the world and work from wherever you want?

Or maybe you want to make some extra income by freelancing but have no clue where to start? Well, you’re certainly not alone, and definitely in the right place!

In July 2015 I had no idea where to start, there was so much conflicting advice out there, so many “simple” guides to becoming a digital nomad. So what did I do? I set myself a challenge. I was going to try out ALL the different jobs that I could do without a tech background and document my progress (and earnings) along the way.  I invite you to join my Digital Nomad Job Challenge: 12 jobs, 12 months, 1 big dream!
