Brian Dean used to be a digital nomad.
Now, he’s a digital “slowmad.”
He used to travel the world, spending one night in Berlin and then jetting off for a two or three-day stay in Canada. It might sound glamorous, but according to Brian, it’s a great way to not get any work done. After growing tired of living off a miniscule budget, Brian decided to turn to the “slowmad” lifestyle. He still travels the world while working on his digital marketing, but now he spends weeks at a time in different places, being sure to get work done and still enjoy his travels.
HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU WORK?
Brian’s typical work day begins around ten and ends around 3.
“I’m not a long hours guy.”
In the early days of your career, Brian says it’s great to work a lot.
When he first started out, he would give himself from 7am-7pm to get his work done.
“You don’t know a lot, so you have a learn and work a lot.”
It gives you time to figure out what works and what doesn’t work for you, so when you’re older, you can simply do what works best for you.
