My name is Sharon, and I am a normal Australian married mum of three. What isn’t so normal is that I was able to build an online business that enabled us to become digital nomads.
My passion is travel, and I do it as much as possible, having visited over 90 countries. I also love reading about travel which is when I first started hearing the term “digital nomad“. I realised many families were able to make an online income while on the road. If they could do it, why can’t we?
I decided in late 2013 that I was going to make an online income. This was reaffirmed further when I quit work in mid 2014. At the end of 2014, we left Australia indefinitely so that both my husband, J, and I could work full time on building up an online business and earning enough money to give us the freedom and flexibility that we craved. Above all else, we hoped for more quality family time – and we have achieved that!

We not only had a fabulous 13 months splitting our time between travelling and living in Penang, but we have returned home to Australia with an online business that has literally changed our lives.
Before starting this adventure, I worked in IT and then as a high school teacher. I hope that by sharing our journey here that I can show you just how possible it is to go from dreaming of working online to making it happen and help you make it happen too.
We are lucky enough to have three gorgeous kids. Our oldest two are at school which is a big factor in why we decide to keep living in Australia now.

Note: this was recorded a couple of years ago. You can find a more up to date version of my story here.
I now focus on helping others have the same success with blogging as I have.
I do want to emphasise that my income comes from travel blogging and niche sites. Unlike most other bloggers in this space, I did not make my money from telling others how to make money. What I write about here works and not just in a theoretical sense.
I only write about topics which I have mastered and that earn me money.
I’m constantly working on my craft on old and new sites which I created in my quest to build an online business (the most recent case study site is here and my absolute newest site is here) and I’m always sharing what I learn here. My latest case study on building up my newest site is being shared in the DNW Facebook group – learn how to build a money making site in here!
I also have a podcast, Make Money Blogging with Digital Nomad Wannabe, that you can find here.
Join us here as we detail our journey and help you earn more money online. We would love your feedback, advice and tips along the way. You can read all our income reports here.
