Digital Nomad vs Travelpreneur vs Freelancer vs Entrepreneur. So you are planning to start a business online and you also would like to travel the world and get paid! Who does not want this kind of lifestyle? Honestly!

But you are also wondering what are the differences between a Digital Nomad, a Travelpreneur, a Freelancer and an Entrepreneur?

Do not go anywhere this article is for you.

Hey guys! I am Roman, I am originally from France and I have lived in Malaysia since 2018 with my wife. I have been traveling and working abroad for a very long time and because of covid we are now stuck in Kuala-Lumpur and we can’t travel or go anywhere.

For this reason, I decided to create for you a series of videos that will help you become a Digital Nomad and give you tips that will allow you to get started.

Initially, I was supposed to publish only one video per week but a few of you requested to see more videos and for this reason, I will be publishing two videos a week (One on Wednesday and another one on Sunday)

A nomad is someone who moves from place to place.

A digital nomad is someone who lives and travels from place to place while working online using the powers of the Internet. 

Digital nomads are pretty hardcore; they don’t really have a home, or live anywhere in particular, and spend their time traveling while working. 

They also *work*. I mention this because you’re not a digital nomad if you just travel and roam the world. Then you’d be a backpacker, couch-surfer, traveler, vagabond, beach bum – you get the idea. 

Digital nomads are NOT paid to travel.

They pay for their own travels using the income generated through their service- or product-based business. Jobs, where you are paid to travel, are more like: teaching English abroad, being a tour guide, or working as an au pair, flight attendant, or cruise ship worker. 

Some digital nomads work *just enough* to pay for their travels and living costs. Others work maybe even more than 9-5ers and remote workers. Most digital nomads spend the majority of their day working.

Yep, they’re in an exotic location but their main focus isn’t to see the sights all day and every day. Their main focus is their business, and sightseeing comes second in off-business hours to shooting videos for their Youtube for example.


Disclaimer: “travelpreneur” is probably the least commonly used term in this bunch. I didn’t make it up, but when it came to picking a term that describes the situation, I felt “travelpreneur” was the one.

It is a blend of travel and entrepreneurship. 

I chose this term because it: 

a) nails the two interests  in one word, and 

b) is loose enough to not put you in a box (like “digital nomad”). 

To be honest, a travelpreneur is probably pretty similar to a “remote worker” or someone who’s “location independent.”

Why? Because all of these positions refer to the fact that you are an outsourced contractor for your clients, and you can deliver your work online.

A remote worker or Digital Nomads work from outside the traditional office. This doesn’t necessarily mean they are working from home; they could be in Thailand and all that really matters is they are delivering as promised!

Pretty cool, right?

What is it like being a freelance photographer? - Quora
Digital Nomad vs Travelpreneur vs Freelancer vs Entrepreneur…

A freelancer is someone who is self-employed (whereas a digital nomad or remote worker could very well work for a company) by offering services to clients. 

A freelancer is living the “work-for-yourself” dream, whether that’s on a full-time basis or on a “side hustle” basis (so many terms used in this post – let’s get them all out there, shall we!).

Freelancers do not work for free (LOL) Who does? So where the name comes from, I do not know.

They often run a sole proprietorship business and work with clients on one-time projects or deliver longer-term, recurring services. 

Fun fact: Forbes has reported that freelancers (part-time and full-time) make up 35% of the U.S. population, with that number expected to reach 50% by 2020. 

I have also started my own Freelancing job here in Malaysia as a professional photographer and if you are interested to check my website I will leave it in the description below.

Ah, we’ve reached the last one of all these terms. Perhaps the broadest, the most general, but the one that encompasses them all. 

An entrepreneur is someone who runs a business. 

More specifically, according to the dictionary, an entrepreneur is “someone who exercises initiative by organizing a venture to take advantage of an opportunity and, as the decision-maker, decides what, how, and how much of a good or service will be produced.”

To me, the key here is that an entrepreneur sees an opportunity to solve a problem or need, and organizes all the moving parts to deliver that solution. 

There is a great American show that I sometimes take inspiration from and it is called “Shark Tank”. If you listen carefully, you will be able to find inspiration and tips to start and grow your own business and who knows maybe one day you will be on that show.

So, whether you’re considering being a digital nomad, a travelpreneur or a freelancer, you need to start with identifying a problem that a specific group of people has, and then solving that problem for them with your unique set of skills. 

Simple, right?
