I guess you are here because of mainly one of two reasons (or both):
You are here because you are a friend of ours checking out what we have been up to 🙂 – check it all out and tell us with all honesty what you think!
You got interested in Nomad To Be, saw us on Facebook or Instagram and want to find out a little more – very happy you are reading this right now, this means we could actually capture your interest (and obviously, same applies to you: any feedback you have, happy to receive it!)
Let me introduce to you a little bit what Nomad To Be is, who we are and how we got here, with some more words then what you might have seen already on our website.
In short: Nomad To Be wants to help anyone who can work remote (work from home, telework) and is interested in working from a different country then their home country, with 2 focuses:
We focus on families (but hey, anything with more than 1 person counts as a family, we are fully inclusive)
We focus on Portugal (for now at least) as the place to work from, as we know it well, can give you great advice and the best service. But you might find other articles or information on other countries, just not as detailed as our main country.
So who is behind Nomad To Be? We are three moms, spread across Europe. Joana, who lives in Poland with her family of 5, originally from Portugal. She has lived with her husband and 3 kids in different parts of Portugal, as well as Switzerland, and has tried out many of the services and links we have on our page herself (or made her 3 kids try them). She has helped many Portuguese living sem fronteiras to have a place online where they can share their stories and find useful information (@vidasemfronteiras). Sonia, living and working in Portugal’s beautiful North, not only is a full time IT teacher and is building a new house to host and service travelers from all over the world, but also has her own accommodation rental business that provides vacation homes and great services. And me, Patricia, a new mom originally from Germany, living in Switzerland now, and before living and working in 8 other countries around the globe, from New Zealand to Colombia.
The Why (a bit of how we got here):
So how did we get here? It all started in early 2021, when after already working for more than a year in home office and missing on one side the social life at the office, but on the other side enjoying the new flexibility, the idea came up: “hey, we all live and work in different places, having our families with us, enjoying but also struggling with the same topics, why not help other families, so they can enjoy the same benefits, but maybe struggle a little bit less?” And after talking about our experience to some friends, with many times the same answers and concerns (“That is so interesting, I want to do the same, but there is so much to think about? Could this be an option for just a short time? But Airbnb is so expensive and I don’t know if I could work from there, will they have good Wifi?”) we thought, “ok, let’s do this, let’s build this and share our experience as well as offer a service to help others” – Nomad To Be was born
So now you know a little bit about the background, who we are and what we want to do. All there is left to say: Enjoy our website, check out what we have (and come back regularly as we add new content) and if you have any other questions, leave a comment or contact us. And if you like what you see, share it with your friends 🙂
