I’m Angela Sherman…
I’m in my 50s and I’m a mid life nomad. In 2014 I adapted my full time work so I could ‘work from anywhere’ – and also manage my whole life on the move. It means I can work from wherever I choose for as long as I choose – whenever I choose.
I did this so I could explore more fascinating people and places – near and far – without being constrained by a fixed amount of time off work. I’m also older than a typical ‘digital nomad’, and I love what my life experience brings to my travel experience.
Outwardist shows you how to:
- go anywhere anytime yet still maintain your income and manage your commitments on the move – even if you currently feel stuck at a desk, office or fixed place of work
- spend more time exploring places you wouldn’t normally reach
- have conversations with fascinating people you wouldn’t otherwise meet
- enjoy a life more on your terms
I share insights learned from my own experience and help you avoid the mistakes I’ve made along the way. It means you can find inspiration to step out of your comfort zone.
The experience of being an ‘older nomad’ will stay with you always and enrich your life in hundreds of ways. The upside is unlimited! (What’s more, you’ll meet so many amazing people that your address book will be bursting at the seams.)

Don’t wait until you retire
Being an older nomad means we bring our whole life and working experience to every new encounter and to every new place we go. But some people tell me they’ll wait until they retire to do more travelling.
Don’t wait. Life is short.
You can adapt how you live and work to free yourself up to travel more now.
My parents were both diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in their early 50s. They never got to enjoy all the things they planned for their retirement.
My previous partner died suddenly at age 50.
You never know what’s around the corner. Life throws some odd curve balls at us, so do what you love now rather than later. Go after your dreams.
What we become used to can prevent us seeing new possibilities
In mid life it’s easy to feel constrained or trapped – and feel that time is flying faster and faster. The free spirit within us that longs to find greater freedom and flexibility can end up wondering if it will ever be possible. Very often it’s our work that stops us living the life we really want to live. Throw into the mix the usual commitments of mid life – mortgage, house, family, kids, bills to pay, etc. – it can sometimes feel as though our world is shrinking.
Digital nomads are often in their 20s and 30s and they travel all the time while working online. That’s pretty nice – but why should younger people have all the fun? I can tell you that being an older nomad is even better.
Because you bring a lot of life experience to every encounter and every adventure. Your work and career experience to date means you have the knowledge, skills and ability to focus on more of what you enjoy – and I can show you how to take your whole life experience and use it to be able to work from anywhere – and manage your usual day-to-day commitments at the same time.
You don’t have to travel all the time; you can choose how much time you spend exploring and how much time you spend back home.
