Answered by Jacob Laukaitis, marketer
It's very important to understand that the digital nomad lifestyle is not about working for a specific amount of time, saving up money, quitting that job and traveling for as long as your savings last. The digital nomad lifestyle is all about consistently making money remotely, while traveling.
In other words, when it comes to finances, being a digital nomad is exactly the same thing as living in one place - you make money every month and you spend money every month.
That is why you do not need to have any savings when you start traveling as a digital nomad (provided that you're already consistently making money remotely every month). Of course, there might be situations in which having savings might help, but, once again, when it comes to spending money, being a digital nomad is the same as living in one place - you make money every month and you spend money every month :)
