On today’s podcast I discuss digital nomads and mental health with Meegan Harp, a 42 year old nomad therapist.
Meegan specialises in online therapy. Her client groups include people from her native state of Oregan, as well as digital nomads from across the world. She’s grown a profitable business whilst on the road, and her success partly stems from the fact that she is location independent herself.
Meegan explains how she made the jump from being a regular therapist to online working, around the same time she made the decision to become location independent. She gives her honest opinion on the challenges that the lifestyle presents, citing relationship problems, loneliness, isolation and stigma as issues that affect the nomadic experience and reduce happiness. She also gives her view on what nomads can do to help themselves when these issues present in their lives.
In the interview we talk about:
- How Meegan became a regular therapist, before transitioning to online therapy
- Who her ideal clients are
- Why she decided to become location independent
- How she markets her business through facebook groups
- How being a digital nomad can affect your mental and emotional wellbeing
- Her view on how to address common issues and problems which come with the lifestyle
- Her business goals in 2020.
- The best piece of advice someone has ever given her
