A Bright Future for Digital Nomads in 2021

2020 changed the game for how you can complete your job and the online space. Now is the time to make the transition into the online world to have the freedom to work where you desire.

The key areas of growth for 2021 which don’t require your presence in an office: Data-driven marketing; high quality content production for would-be influences  and virtual jobs, which save companies valuable expenditure on office overheads. Employer attitudes have changed radically to remote working, and many WFH roles can now be just as lucrative as traditional on-site jobs.

Digital nomads –

“Where there’s WiFi, there is nomads”

Digital nomads are people who use telecommunications technologies to earn a living and, more generally, conduct their life in a nomadic manner. Such workers often work remotely from foreign countries, coffee shops, public libraries, co-working spaces, or recreational vehicles. This is often accomplished through the use of devices that have wireless Internet capabilities such as smartphones or mobile hotspots. Successful digital nomads typically have a financial cushion or need to develop high levels of self-reliance and self-discipline. The digital nomad community has had various events established to host members of it.

Common types of digital nomads include retired or semi-retired persons (including snowbirds), independently wealthy or entrepreneurs, and (often younger) remote workers. People typically become digital nomads for positive reasons, such as financial independence and a career that allows for location independence. Although digital nomads enjoy advantages in freedom and flexibility, they report loneliness as their biggest struggle, followed by burnout. This lifestyle may present other challenges as well such as maintaining international health insurance with coverage globally, abiding by different local laws, and sometimes obtaining work visas.
