A Day in the Life of a Nomad

October 24, 2013 | , ,

I’ve been thinking about writing a post like this for a while, but I kept putting it off because there’s just no such thing as a “typical” day in the life of this nomad (and, I’ll admit, I was probably waiting for a more exciting and impressive day to record for posterity!). But, today was a day in my life, and I’d like to share it with you. Some times and activities are approximate, because I just decided now that today was the day to share.

7:15 am Get up, drink water, check email and Facebook, and think about what I want to get done today. Don’t quite get around to doing the writing I’d been planning on.

8:00 am Coaching call with a new client

9:10 am Quick breakfast

9:30 am Coaching call with a new client

10:30 am A little casual research on places to stay in Indonesia

11:00 am Follow up on emails, check in with my groups on Facebook

12:00 pm Think about doing some client work, but I’m hungry…

12:30 pm Lunch with my hubby, talk about plans, review website we’re creating for our apartment in Buenos Aires

1:30 pm Prepare materials for new coaching clients, set up billing, etc.

3:00 pm Work on sales page and logistics for new offer I’m creating

4:00 pm More email, clean up some files and other admin stuff

5:00 pm Head out to the river for a break with our friend/Airbnb host

7:00 pm Stop at grocery store on the way home

8:00 pm Dinner with hubby

9:00 pm Check email, Facebook, start thinking about today’s blog post

9:30 pm Write this blog post!

The day’s not over; it’ll be a long night for me…

As soon as I publish and promote this post, I’ll spend some time on client work, then take a break until my calls at midnight and 1 am (both for online programs I’m participating in). I don’t always stay up late for calls, but I don’t have to get up early tomorrow, and this is the last call for both programs, so I’ll make it happen.

As I said, there’s no such thing as a “typical” day (which I like!), but a lot of them are pretty boring and normal, like this one (perhaps not that different from your day!).

Some days are more focused on travel or exploring, or on client work, and some days I don’t work at all (Sundays right now are for going out for breakfast, wandering on the beach, reading, and playing cards).

This post was part of a blog challenge I did in October where I published a post every single day for a month.
