With the wave of resignations around the world and the change in working conditions that happened after the COVID-19 pandemic hit, it is clearer than ever what employees want.
After years and years of running in the hamster wheel, trying to grow and achieve milestones in our work, the pandemic showed us that it doesn’t have to be that way. We were forced to take a step back and re-consider what’s important, see other possibilities and what do we want when it comes to the way we work.
Apart from the basic needs of being appreciated, working in a good environment with the ability to grow professionally and financially, employees are now going after something that was unattainable before retirement, Freedom.
Being free in regards to your work can mean different things to different people, maybe more flexible hours or the ability to work from home a couple of days a week, or even completely remote. Freedom at work is what can give you a good and healthy life-work balance, allowing you to do your job and deliver, without having to abandon your life.
This is a value that digital nomads have understood and held high for years. The whole idea of digital nomadism is about freedom of movement while being able to work online. This lifestyle allows people to gather experiences, see and do more around the world as long as there is an internet connection for them to work.
All these discussions happening now around the world regarding work and how and where to do it, inspired the Freedom Business Summit.
The Freedom Business Summit
FBS is an online summit that will take place on 6 and 7 November 2021. The summit aims to attract 2000+ entrepreneurs and digital nomads to share ideas and know how when it comes to taking back your freedom.
Anyone who wants to start a location independent lifestyle successfully is invited to attend and get insights from people who did it. You can learn how they achieved freedom in business, or became digital nomads and global entrepreneurs with all what that entails, including setting up the business, managing online teams, getting the paperwork done, where to go and what problems you may face and how to solve them.
The organizers state that this is an event that can truly change your life; by giving you all the means and knowledge you need to start your freedom business journey.
The agenda of the summit includes all what you may need to know to achieve business freedom, they dubbed it as topics that don’t get coverage in big media. The topics also take a nice flow where they start with helping you set and embrace the mentality of “self-sovereignty”, then comes dealing with red tape, the papers, the jurisdictions and the passports and how to deal with any obstacles in these areas.
Other topics covered include cryptocurrencies, specifically Bitcoin, taxation with a focus on how to legally limit income tax or even avoid it altogether, and global incorporation for the best environment for your business.
The summit will also discuss self-sufficient housing and how to achieve it, as well as topics that relate to families like how to unschool your children and bring them up with the mentality of critical thinkers.
All of this, plus the chance to hear real from different nomads and entrepreneurs who made it.
