Hey There! I’m Stephanie Linder.  

I’m obsessed with salsa dancing, anything to do with latin culture and the best decision of my life was leaving behind my full-time pharmaceutical sales job in Chicago 2 1/2 years ago.  

 

?

But Wait - Are You Just Another Millennial or Digital Nomad?

Maybe? I am technically a millennial.

Honestly, I just was someone who wasn’t happy at my core.  And I craved a life where I was learning new things and seeing new places and meeting new people.

If you want to learn more about me, I think I can predict the next 5 questions you’re going to ask – so read below and see if I’m right….

Why Did You Leave Your Pharmaceutical Sales Job (You Dummy)?

Good Question.  To date, it’s still the best and most lucrative job I had. 

I joke that I have been like Bejamin Button of my career.  I started out very responsible, securing a job before I even graduated and put 12% into my 401K until I was 25.  

I was very responsible throughout my 20s (and it’s allowed me to be where I am now).  

I worked in women’s health and fertility pharmaceutical sales for almost 7 years at a wonderful company that taught me so much.  But once I turned 30, I found myself in a relationship I didn’t love and in a city I had spent my whole life in.  

I had started to travel solo here and there, but I always had a curiosity outside of life in the midwest.  

I did three things that were cruicial to letting my quit.  1) I ended a long term relationship 2) I had frozen my eggs 3) I made the decision to do it 4) I had some backup savings 

 

 

 

 

What Did Your Parents Say?

I get this all the time.  Luckily, my parents were supportive (but 1000% worried) but I had proved to them that I was responsible.  

But if you are worried about how to talk to your parents, I provide more insight here on some good things to tell them. 

At the end of the day, the world today is not what our parents understand.  And when people don’t understand something, they get scared or nervous.  Your parents want you to be safe and comfortable.  It’s why they are worried.  But if you can come to them with a bit of a plan, it may help.  If you want a list of 8 things to share with your parents when you’re planning to go abroad, you can click here.  

Were You Scared Of Being Lonely?

No. I wasn’t. 

I understand how other people are.  But I wasn’t scared.  

Things like this have never scared me, so maybe I am not the best person to answer that question.  

But, what I can tell you, that after 2 years of travel and now living back in the states I am more lonely now than I ever was traveling.  When you’re abroad, you are different and you stand out.  You are also surrounded by like minded people who also want to expand their network.  

And if you are really, really lonely, you can take a look at some of my tips on how to meet people while traveling solo or join our free Solo Travel Advice Facebook group here.
