Jack Mann Reveals His Astonishing Secret in Making Millions While Being a Digital Nomad
All of us wake up early in the morning, tie our neckties or anything else that is considered as corporate attire, and then we rush out of the house to go to work.
Most workers hope they get to earn millions in the long run while working. But not for Jack Mann. If anything, you’ll find him wearing a pair of shorts while hopping on his van and taking a hike or walking around a national park.
Once he’s familiarized with the area or the new ZIP code for the day, you’ll find him checking on his work and earning millions! How did he do this? Let’s read and find out!
Meet The Digital Nomad
Contrary to millions of Americans, Mann does not work in a typical 9am-6pm boring office job that lets him stay and get stuck in the same place over and over again. Mann calls himself a proud digital nomad and he’s now the founder and CEO of Vibes.
This term refers to a new breed of working individuals who earn their living either by staying at home or traveling the world. They mainly control their time and flexibility to do the things they want while working.
Along with his girlfriend named Hanna, they started hitting the road last year and launched their business. Since then, they have traveled 15,000 miles and visited 11 states together with their converted 2006 Mercedes Sprinter van.
A Productivity Booster
Despite his seemingly happy-go-lucky adventures, Mann says that he’s not taking his career for granted, though. If anything, he reveals that he has become more productive ever since he shifted to this lifestyle. His notable hi-fidelity earplugs product sales increased up to $2 million in 2017 after his appearance on ABC’s Shark Tank.
The country’s public wifi and personal hotspots enabled the couple to switch their workplace from one state to another. Mann reveals how technology has allowed them to work and earn for a living while making difference in their lives. He also reveals working in a traditional office space is quickly becoming a thing of the past.
And since Mann is always on the move with his digital nomadic lifestyle, he develops the discipline to maintain a work-life balance. Mann also shares what his typical day looks like:
- 5:45 am – he wakes up and goes out to exercise. He’s either running or hiking to explore the local area. If not, you may see him hitting the gym.
- 7:00 am – He starts working from his van. If not, he goes to a local coffee shop or co-working space to manage his business.
- 3:00 pm – Finish his work and do his remaining chores. He also inspects his work schedule for the next day before he uses his remaining time to explore the local area.
- 7:00 pm – he starts traveling to his new location.
- 9:00 pm – it’s time for him to hit the sack.
This Lifestyle is Cost-Friendly Too

Mann confessed how people often frowned upon him once they discovered how he travels every day while working. They were wondering if he’s spending a hefty amount of money moving from one place to another. However, Mann debunks this myth and tells everyone that this lifestyle shift didn’t hit his finances hard. He may have spent $50,000 to buy his converted van but his monthly expenses were reduced by 30% compared when paying a rent in a Minneapolis apartment.
He also doesn’t have to worry about his parking fees or garage rentals too. In his 9 months of traveling so far, he only paid at eight locations since most US states have free camping locations where he can stay for the night. Now, he mainly spends his money on gas, in which the price can fluctuate dramatically based on the distance they have to travel, as well as their food which only cost around $12 per day since they mainly cook inside the van. This enables him to save more of his money than spend it.
