No·mad: ˈnōˌmad/noun: A member of a group of people who move from place to place instead of living in one place all the time.
Entrepreneur and media connoisseur Evita Turquoise Robinson has given a whole new meaning to the word NOMAD with the creation of The Nomad•ness Travel Tribe. Robinson launched her “travel movement” in 2011, after living in Asia and traveling to 12 countries on three different continents since the age of 21. Robinson’s experience left her with the realization that there were no real diverse travel communities in existence. Nomad•ness now has members in over three dozen countries. The group comprises a “collective of globe trotters, artists, entrepreneurs, and diverse vacationers alike” who plan meet ups and trips all across the world.
The Tribe has grown–mostly by word of mouth–to nearly 9,000 members. Its members have visited various countries including Spain, India, South Africa and Somalia. And there are currently about 8,000 people on the waiting list for membership in the Tribe. (Membership is kept exclusive in order to maintain the integrity of the invitation only platform.) Keeping in sync with this idea, there is a newly launched Newbie Bootcamp link on the company website to screen potential new members. Tip: Membership requires at least one international passport stamp. Members share stories, advice, photos and conversation about personal experiences around the world. The Nomad•ness Travel Tribe prides itself on representing what founder Robinson calls the “new age travel movement.” For Evita Turquoise Robinson, taking a leap of faith and never giving up on her dreams has proven to be well worth it and proves, in the admirable words of Dr. Cornel West, that even if you “step out on nothing,” you will certainly “land on something.”
