EP 23: THE LIFE LESSONS YOU LEARN AS A DIGITAL NOMAD WITH OMAR MO

SPECIAL GUEST: OMAR MO

In this episode, I got to talk to Omar Mo – an incredibly fun soul that is traveling the world as a Digital Nomad.  He shares his story from a normal life of a regular job and living at home to buying a one way ticket to Nicaragua and living out of his suitcase.  He shares some of the life lessons he learns along the way and stories about his adventures on the road.

My Thoughts:

I loved meeting Omar.  A few weeks back, we did a pre interview to discuss what we would be talking about for the actual day that we would be shooting this podcast and immediately, I felt like Omar was an old friend that I’ve known for a while.  Our energies matched!  We laughed and laughed, and it was so wonderful getting the chance to speak to him for the actual podcast episode.  I think what I found most interesting are two things. 

1.  All of the lessons he learned along his journey – He learned Empathy, Responsibility (get health insurance), Fearlessness, Gratitude, Appreciation for his Family and so much more.  


2. He knew at a young age that he was meant for the road, which when I heard him say that – My heart sang.  It’s something that I’ve always felt.  I wasn’t meant to live a normal life.  I know I’m meant to live a lot of this life moving around and exploring the world.  It was nice to meet someone who also felt this affinity towards this lifestyle.

 

Speaking to him reaffirmed what I already knew deep down inside— I am definitely meant to live out of a suitcase, even if for most of the year.  Hearing the life that Omar was leading, it made me realize that the dream of mine is a very tangible thing.  It can happen.  It is possible and I know it will. 

Thank you for those reminders, Omar.  Much Love!

Stay Wild,
Drea
