the remote working revolution

Ask yourself a question. If you didn’t have to go to work today, get dressed in that uncomfortable office attire, fight the traffic or go through a hectic same day-to-day commute, to sit at your desk while you complete that stressful project. If that wasn’t a key requirement of making a living and putting food on the table, would you still do it? Many start-up entrepreneurs escape that environment by starting a new business. But apart from losing the suit for a t-shirt and swapping the cubicle for the bedroom or parent’s garage, the rest is pretty much the same old. So how about adding location independence in the mix? Enter Digital Nomads – a growing cross-section of the working population who have leveraged the internet and technology to allow themselves to work or start-up almost anywhere in the world. It’s the proverbial university gap year, but it never ends. It’s the “I’m going travelling” mentality, but instead of working in bars or doing odd jobs to fund the next plane ticket, they take their careers with them in their carry-on. While some digital nomads themselves cringe at the term, it is used to reference a relatively new type of worker/entrepreneur who does their job on the go. Arising mainly out of the tech and web-based industries, it is a philosophy of adventure and self autonomy. They choose the environments they wish to work in, make their own schedules, and spend as much time as possible taking in new cultures and experiences. They pick lower cost locations to bootstrap their business and then move or go back to the big tech hubs when investments and mor r advantage and the benefits are astonishing.

Digital nomads need to change their never-ending vacation scenery from time to time. We need to feel the creative buzz of the other entrepreneurs. To smell the atmosphere of getting things done. To hold each other accountable. People living the conventional lifestyle need to come back from a trip feeling that there is a take away from the whole adventure. That the journey doesn’t end after the farewell party. They need to leave with new skills, views and routines. They need to stay within the community that will keep their batteries plugged in. They need to know they’ve learned about the possibilities to make their lifestyle more flexible. It’s true that digital nomadism is not for everybody. But on the scale from being totally confined to being absolutely on the loose, there is a sweet spot for everybody.Get out of your bubble, hear us out, see how we’re doing it, and find your sweet spot. I’m confident that in everybody’s work and life there is a room for getting it more flexible. Let’s continue making changes even after the farewell party. Don’t let your trip fade away. Stay on the journey.
