Did your work-life change after COVID? Maybe during the pandemic, you were one of the people who moved their workplace to their home; many people around the world did, and more than you can imagine, don’t want to go back to the office.
Working remotely for many of us, whether we had tried it before or not, was eye-opening. We can do so much with our time, and we can finally benefit from the direction towards life quality versus collecting wealth at the expense of life quality.
The last two years saw two big changes when it comes to the way we work, the first was in regards to the workplace; even after the COVID restrictions became more relaxed, many companies went full remote or at least a hybrid model, whether based on the employee’s needs or on a rotation plan.
The second change, which relies heavily on the first one, is that this period saw an unprecedented rise in the numbers of digital nomads. Now that companies became more open to remote work, the possibility to become a digital nomad became available to many who dreamt of a life of adventure and exploration.
A digital nomad is a location-independent person who uses digital means to conduct his work while living a life of travel. A digital nomad can be a remote employee, an investor, an entrepreneur or a freelancer. Although it may sound like a rather new concept, it has been known and practiced for about 3 decades.
As digital nomadism grows, discussions about how to become one and the challenges of this lifestyle as well as the tips and tricks to make the best out of it become more and more imperative; and it becomes a necessity to hear from those who live this lifestyle and learn from their success as well as their mistakes. And this is the message of the Digital Nomad Week 2021.
