Dipak was raised on Canaria Islands, but he travels the world. He chose the life of the digital nomads for the freedoms it gives him.
Hi Dipak, can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your lifestyle?
I was born and raised on the island of Gran Canaria, one of Spain’s Canary Islands. For the past 3 and a half years, I have been living the digital nomad life, staying no more than 3 weeks in one place! It goes without saying that the last couple of months have been an exception to that way of life.
I am currently heading the sales team at Leadfeeder but I also consult small and medium-sized businesses on how to build, scale their sales teams and how to sell in this day and age (personal branding, social selling, etc.)
What is your current destination?
I am currently in the historic and quaint town of Guildford, Surrey, in the southeast of England. I studied at the University of Surrey so I know the area quite well.
Can you tell us a bit about the projects you are currently working on? Are you currently looking for some new projects and clients?
My current objective is to scale and grow the sales team at Leadfeeder but I’m always open to help companies who are just getting started or seeking to improve their current strategies. More and more companies have been doubling down on their digital and social efforts these last couple of months.
What do you like the most about being a Digital Nomad?
The freedom. The freedom to decide where you call your office and being able to travel, to connect with people from all over the world.
And what are the downsides of it (in case there are any)?
Not for me!
What is a place/country you liked the most while traveling and why? What’s on your to-travel-list?
That has to be Japan. The ‘land of the rising sun’ offers a great blend of modern city life and pristine nature.
I really want to go to New Zealand, having watched countless documentaries and heard incredible stories from friends of their travels to the island nation.
How often do you use coworking spaces? Is there one that you’d like to recommend to other nomads?
Co-working spaces are great places to meet people and network. I resort to them when I’m staying in a place for longer periods of time or when my accommodation lacks high-speed internet. It’s hard to pick just one but CoworkingC in my hometown has a fantastic community.
In case you have a motto, could you share it with us?
Seize the day, live life to the fullest, never stop exploring and be happy!
Shoutout to my Dad who instilled this in me early on.
