I am incredibly thankful for the Digital Nomad Academy community.

3 months ago, I secured a remote online job through DNA, and it is going phenomenally well, and starting this month will be enough to sustain my travel lifestyle. 20 minutes ago I bought a one-way ticket to Granada, Nicaragua for 10 bucks and a bunch of United points. It will be my first ever business-class flight.

I picked Granada because my friend lives there, who I met through a DNA Mastermind group, and she is providing an incredibly 'soft' landing for me. Thank you for existing, and for being present, Cody and the DNA Community, and for being my support system and launching pad. YOU ROCK!

What Our Members Say:

I am so grateful for Digital Nomad Academy. I should tell you that I have been planning this a long time... trying to figure it all out on my own, but finding DNA gave me the courage to help me feel safe enough to pull the trigger and get out on my own 100%. I am still a bit nervous, but I know that the time has come. I am supremely grateful for the guidance and community you created through DNA.

I joined in 2011 when I knew I wanted to eventually work from Southeast Asia or South America. On the forums I met people in all stages of their location independence. Some are struggling to leave their jobs, others are hustling on the side or have quit. Some are already on the road. There’s always someone who can offer you advice because they’ve been in your shoes. If you want to reach a new milestone in your life, you should surround yourself with people who are doing the same or have reached the same goal. The community helped me change my mindset into one of a digital nomad.

I turned in my 2 week notice today.  A huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders. … next month I embark on a 3 month solo journey around the world!

I have to tell you, you have opened my eyes to what is possible and our life will never be the same again. I now have a strong foundation and am concentrating on what I believe will be some monumental wins in the next year. When I started out, the online business world seemed like a murky, incongruent, frustrating mess. Now, I can see a very bright light at the end of the tunnel.

I owe so much to this for getting me to where I am today and it has introduced me to a ton of likeminded thinkers …people who are now living their dream and are happy to give their advice and share their experience. Through the forum I met one of my best friends here on Bali …

Since our last call, I’ve been really productive — I’ve finished 2 separate projects in the last week and a half, and I just locked down another $6,000 job too!

Before I moved to Thailand, I spent six months learning and trying different ways to make money online but couldn’t find something I wanted to do that would fit in with a location independent lifestyle. However…it was immediately clear that Digital Nomad Academy was the missing piece of the puzzle… and as a result of some of the conversations I had with people from DNA, I actually started two businesses and have even found clients through some of those connections. …If you want to start an online business, become location independent and travel the world, Cody and the DNA will give you the tools and resources you need to make it happen.

…the calls are awesome! My first call was with Josh Kaufman… A best selling author, I got to spend an hour with him and ask him anything I wanted! That blew my mind because I was literally in the middle of his book The Personal MBA. How much do you think his time is worth? We’ve had the opportunity to converse with people who are successfully doing what we want to do, who because Cody drugged them or something are literally telling us their secrets and giving us access to resources NOBODY has access to!

I have my first client… I also have my first affiliate marketing product! … My husband is understandably nervous about my crazy plan. So when I said I wanted to quit in August, he nominated August 31 as the day I quit. … So we’re going to hit Chiang Mai in September, in time for my birthday!

I have completed many of the steps since I joined DNA including creating a budget, starting an emergency fund and getting out of debt. I feel that I’m well on my way to becoming a digital nomad. Thank you DNA!

The friendships I’ve gotten from this community are the best. It’s way different to have friends whom you can discuss about business strategies, marketing, goals, deadlines, to keep tasks you have to do in the day and to be made accountable of everything you have to do to achieve success, than to have friends whose only interest is to go out and drink beers. Just the friendships alone are worth millions!
