JHANA, the digital nomad + vanlifer


@living_atlas

5/5 committed to her flexlife ⠀ 10/10 feel confident she’s living the lifestyle she wants everyday ⠀ 10 months and running⠀ Main interests 100% pay the bills ⠀ Colorado born wild-child but now mountains = home ⠀ Follow along⠀ ⠀ Jhana lives full-time from a van with her boyfriend. They just got back from 5 months in Mexico, and next they plan to explore the entirety of South America, while both maintaining full-time jobs. Her BF, Marcos runs his own digital marketing agency, and plans to grow it to a 10 million dollar business from the van. Jhana is working on her own consulting business, helping others make the transition from the classic 9-5 lifestyle, what she calls “living life on default mode" to defining and pursuing their own unique freedom.⠀

Jhana believes that the only difference between her lifestyle and a "default" life is the level of control. She has intentionally planned every single part of her lifestyle and she’s cultivated each element to her liking. Jhana is not a bystander in her own life, watching circumstance and luck have their way. She is the creator of her own reality. And, even better, she believes that literally everyone is capable of achieving the same.⠀

For Jhana there is no average “day in the life,” but here’s how she describes her days:

Wake up...somewhere. Work for a few hours in the morning, or sometimes all day, or sometimes not at all. Drive 30 minutes, or 4 hours, or not at all. Hike and fly our paragliders off a local hill, or don't 🤣, there's not really an "average" day, the only consistent pattern is work really hard --> play really hard --> move to a new place --> repeat.⠀ Jhana thinks her definition of freedom will likely change as she develops new passions, priorities, and values, but she doesn’t ever see her life returning to a state of complacency. She thinks the rest of her life will just be her constantly evolving her pursuit of freedom and a life lived beautifully.


Jhana is most grateful for beauty. It fuels and inspires her more than anything else. She is constantly in a state of wonder and gratitude that she gets to live in, and explore, such a beautiful world.

WORDS TO LIVE BY: "It has long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things." - Leonardo Da Vinci.

Jhana says, “The traditional rules and norms that defined "success" no longer apply. The internet, travel and financial stability can coexist, and anyone can be ‘free’ as long as they're willing to rewrite the rules that they allow to dictate their life.”


MASTER TIP: Find a remote job and get yourself on the road. It's so easy to paralyze yourself with the enormity of the details, but as long as you have a job that sustains your lifestyle, you can figure everything else out on the way.
