    Yes, it’s hard to compete with Indians and other cheap labor out there but then you’ll realize that clients who are willing to pay will pay you big bucks if you can deliver outstanding results. So just continue gaining the expertise in the niche that you think you will shine.

    Just a question though, where did you learn those skills? I am a bit hesitant to be a digital nomad because I don’t know if I have the skills right now but I am very willing to learn. I have been looking for so many tutorials online and I still could not decide the best one.
