In this episode of Dreamers & Doers, I interview Elena Manighetti and Ryan Osborne from Sea Wolf Digital – a couple who live and work on a sailing boat.
Dreamers & Doers, episode 3, with Sea Wolf Digital
Elena and Ryan both freelance, working in content marketing and web development, and run their business while sailing around Europe.
In January 2018 I launched the Northern Creative Collective – a support and network group for marketers and creatives in the north of the UK. One of the first people to join was Elena – she introduced herself as a freelance content marketer and how although she’d previously been living in Manchester, she was now exploring Europe on a boat with her partner Ryan, who is a freelance web designer.
This sparked my interest immediately. Being self-employed, I always wonder whether I could actually work anywhere in the world. But it’s not something I’ve done and I really wanted to speak to them to find out more about exactly what they do and how they balance their freelance working with their sailing adventure.
