My go-to camera for my high-quality photography and videography.
Easy grip, durable, and tons of function! Great camera for intermediate creators.
My daily at-home and travel card. I travel internationally too much to dedicate to a specific airline or hotel rewards card (but I'm in all of the points programs).
I like the flexibility and value the CSR has in travel!
Accommodation passes good for 30, 60, or 90 days at ANY Mad Monkey property in Southeast Asia (11 locations across 5 countries with more currently in development!)
Their emails for flight deals are my weekly Christmas presents. Input your home airports, and watch the deals come in!
CheapTickets has a ton of offers just for budget student travelers. We stan.
Lyft is sometimes the cheaper transport option.
I love getting extra point on my Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card, Hilton Hotels, and Delta Airlines by using Lyft!
Super common option for local transport. Uber Eats, Uber Driver, and Uber Transport—keep them in mind!
To pair with my favorite travel credit card, the Chase Sapphire Reserve. I love banking with Chase, and their Ink Business Unlimited helps me rack up points for—you guessed it—more travel!
When I transitioned from Beginner to Intermediate creative and business owner, I wanted to get more serious about my systems, efficiency, and business mindset.
Ari's program did all that and more, and I credit a lot of my mental sanity and success to this program.
Finding an accounting and tax expert for an influencer is tricky enough—but finding one who specializes in travel and travel as a business was borderline impossible.
But I did it. My accountant, Kristin, helps me decide what to write off, how to best pay my taxes, how to organize my business as an S-Corp and help me minimize my taxes as a digital nomad!
I use ConvertKit for all of my email newsletter needs. Their segmentation, automations, data analytics, and funnel features are truly unmatched.
#ListenToGabby: MailChimp until you're consistent, ConvertKit when you're serious.
Most consistent way to send and recieve money internationally. Skip the PayPal fees!
My Day 1 task management software, CRM, and lifeline for my business. It's helps me stay organized on track. AND it's color coded with emojis? GOLD.
Pinterest could change the game for your blog, brand, and business, if used right! The most important thing: consistency. And Tailwind help with just thatt
Honestly, I flipping love them. Siteground was starting to charge out thee a** everytime my site would grow, and I was punished to the tune of hundreds of $$$ for going viral.
Big Scoots is managable up to 100,000 views per month, and their customer support is seriously top notch. They make my life so much easier, and I stan them.
My favorite international VPN. Worked like a charm my 3 months in Dubai.
A lifeline. A blessing. It is a wizard rope that connects the apps you didn't even know you wanted to connect. I don't know how many ways I can say “worth the investment”.
Gotta-hava video calls when working remotely. I find that Zoom is the most powerful service that the most people use.
Looking for short-term contract hires, or a dedicated part-timer? Fiverr has them all.
Great affiliate network for a variety of businesses.
Send and receive up to 200GB of files, photos, and documents. This is a life saver for sending content for review to clients, and footage to editors!
The service I use for my business phone, and as the phone number for all of my text-code confirmation needs. Saves me the huge headache of switching out SIM cards to verify a login.
Twitter is where the business goes down! Make sure you're active and engaged, always.
You seriously don't know how many little things you misspell until you get Grammarly.
The best medical health insurance for travelers on the market.
A must have for clear audio, on the go.
I credit these to erasing my migraines and easing burn out after long days of video editing.
Ground yourself when traveling—a consistent, familiar scent can be so comforting!
My ride or die work and personal laptop for the last 4 years. Great for any creative.
VRBO is like Airbnb, but offers stand-alone vacation homes only. But they have a very specific Book with Confidence Guarantee and Trust & Safety page, while Airbnb simply has a Trust & Safety page. I prefer them!
No digital nomad would be caught dead without one of these. Between planes, trains, and mid-day Zoom calls, you need to have a power source for your devices that doesn't hinge on you having whatever country's outlet adapter on hand.
Get. This. Charging. Cable! You do not want to be digging through your bag on a night bus or midnight flight looking for the right charger for your phone or GoPro. Charge them all at once!
Your phone and laptop will fill up faster than you think, but overcrowding will slow your machines down. An external harddrive will keep your content organized, and safe.
Again, you do don't want to be making life or death decisions on what to charge overnight. With just one country adaptor, and you can get everything to 100%, quick.
