In this episode, Kate and I discuss why burnout happens, especially with six-figure Digital Nomads (It’s happened to me multiple times) and what we can do to avoid it.

Right after this episode I went to get a massage.

Sometimes you just sit at the computer too long, or even start to feel guilty when you’re not working! Crazy.

  • Let’s all take a deep breath shall we?
  • What are you doing this for?
  • Isn’t it to have a better life?

It’s happening right now. So enjoy it!

Stay emPowered, Beck
