Andrew continues the Nomad Capitalist’s theme of finding and discovering your ‘home,’ in this week’s introduction. He says if you’re stuck in the same routine every day, you’re never going to get your own questions answered about whether the nomad lifestyle is for you. By doing, by exploring, and by seeing, you’ll find out where home truly feels for you.
