Let’s face it, not everyone is going to understand your burning desire to travel nor will they encourage you to follow your work-abroad dreams, which is why it’s up to you to build your own network. A great way to start your journey is by attending a digital nomad conference like 7in7 , being held in Colombia later this year, where you can network with and learn from people who’ve already been living the life. And while Facebook has been getting a bad rap lately, I can’t overstate how great it is for community building. Facebook groups are a great place to ask questions, find work and get advice on the nomadic lifestyle. Get your travel questions answered in groups like Travel Latina and pay a visit to Female Digital Nomads or Digital Nomad Girls ,where you can commiserate with women who understand what you’re doing and who’ll support you in your journey.
