Today I’m excited to welcome Tom Kuegler to The Quarter Life Comeback podcast.

Tom Kuegler is a full-time freelance writer and digital nomad.

Shortly after graduating with a degree he paid $80 000 for, Tom realized that he didn’t want a traditional 9-5 job. He decided to start freelance writing and embarked on a roadtrip across the United States to see if he would enjoy the remote working lifestyle.

That trip changed Tom’s life. Since then, he’s become a top writer on Medium, went viral through a NowThis video, started his own publication called the Post-Grad Survival Guide, and gets to design his own work environment.


  • How to make an extra $500 per month on Medium
  • How to start sharing your thoughts without starting a blog or website
  • What it’s like becoming a self-employed digital nomad
  • How to test if working remotely is right for you (even if you’re still employed)
  • Why travel is so transformational
  • Tips for getting started as a freelancer
  • How to land a job you’re not qualified for



  • “If I can work from home, I can work from anywhere”
  • “I’m just in love with the world”
  • “I love the uncertainty behind travel”
  • “I wanted to prove to myself that I could do this”
  • “I had no backup plan”
  • “It’s all about the people you meet”
