This post is part of a series of weekly e-mails that I send out to my e-mail list every Friday about my week as a digital nomad. It’s a little modified from its original form to look more like a blog post, but it’s still very similar to its original form. Enjoy!

It’s insane how time flies – it’s Friday already, hey!

That being said, here’s your weekly dose of the digital nomad life. Here we go! 🙂

Where I’m traveling

I’m spending my last days in Jordan and I just found the world’s coolest coffee shop, hands down. Look at ’em epic mountainsss!

What I’m reading

This week I started reading a really good book about health and diet, called “Fit for Life“. If I had to describe the book in one sentence, it would be this: “It is not only what you eat that makes the difference, but also when you eat it and in what combinations”.

I haven’t managed to finish reading the book yet, but I’ve already decided to eat only fruits until noon and properly combine my food – not to eat 9 different dishes during lunch, for example haha!

If you have trouble staying fit while traveling (I definitely do), I think this book will definitely help you out. Check it out!

Quote I’m pondering

“Workaholics aren’t heroes. They don’t save the day, they just use it up. The real hero is home because she figured out a faster way.” – Jason Fried

Some people are huge supporters of this thought, while others would never agree to it. What do you think?..

Best on BeNomad

This week we (unfortunatelyyy) weren’t able to publish anything on BeNomad, BUT I’m thinking of starting another weekly newsletter – Digital Nomad Q&A.

If I get enough questions from our community, I’ll answer 5 of them and smash that ‘send’ button every single week haha 🙂

Have a question for me?.. Send it to me via this form!

Nomad of the week

This week’s digital nomad is an incredibly inspiring young entrepreneur from Australia – Caitlyn Reid!

Her father wanted to teach her how to become financially independent from a very young age, so he gave her the “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” book when she was 13 years-old. The book inspired her to start her own business and, two years later, she started her first venture – an online shop selling Harry Potter’s merchandise that she imports from China.

Caitlyn is still 16 years-old, so she runs her business while going to school and keeping up with a part-time job. She told me she wants to become a digital nomad right after graduating school and I’m absolutely certain she will!

For the time being, if you ever need any Harry Potter merchandise, check her online shop out!

I hope this weekend you can find yourself a next-level coffee shop with views as good as the ones I saw in Jordan haha 🙂

Best,
Jacob.
