Hi Markéta, can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your lifestyle?
Hi! I am an entrepreneur and I love travelling. This is my passion! I’ve tried a few business models over the years. Two years ago I was focussed purely on online business and since last year I have been working on my own cork e-shop. I am currently doing everything by myself, but eventually I want to delegate packaging to someone else so I can work remotely. I am also a photographer. I believe this is a universally demanded skill and I can look for a clientele all over the world. I like freedom and movement, I love to live in different countries.
Where are you currently based and what you are planning next?
At the moment I am in the Czech Republic where I am focusing primarily on building my business and I am creating a stable place that I can call home. Changing enviornments constantly got tiring at one point.
What do you like most about being a Digital Nomad?
I love the freedom that comes with it. I can choose where I want to live and I am not constrained by vacation days. I am my own boss, which is probably the most difficult thing to learn. It took me many years and a lot of determination to be able to manage myself and my time efficiently.
Is there something that you do not like about being a DN?
To be an entrepreneur it’s obviously a bit of a risk. If you want a thing well done, do it yourself. Some people prefer to be employees and have a secure income, but this is not my case. Motivation is key when you are an entrepreneur.
Which place/country did you like the most while travelling and why?
I am in love with New Zealand, you can find everything there: mountains, sea, beaches. The nature is breathtaking! I hope I will visit NZ soon again! But in every country you can find something beautiful!
Let´s talk about community. From all these places you visited, is there a special place that you particularly liked because of the community?
My favourite nomad destination is Bali. In Bali you can meet people from all around the world. It is an inspirational place, you should try to live there!
Markéta, can you tell us what is your biggest dream?
My biggest dream is to build a successful business and I want to be financially independent. ( I will not tell you what kind of business I want to create, since I am still working on it.)
Are you planning to settle down one day and if yes, where do you think it will be?
Currently I am in the Czech Republic, since I want to create a place that I can call home. This is very important for me. When I was younger I wanted to live abroad, but since then, my outlook on life has changed. I rather live in the Czech Republic close to my family and friends and travel abroad from time to time.
Is there something that you would like to add?
The Digital Nomad lifestyle is amazing and I absolutely recommend you to try it at least for a while. You may like it or you may find out that this lifestyle is not for you, but it is absolutely worth trying!
