Times of Digital Nomads

The world is changing

Once, everyone desired to settle somewhere and lead a peaceful life. Over time, houses started to be built farther away from cities. Now, people have noticed that it is much more exciting to live in multiple places at once.

In the past, work was stationary. You had to punch a time card. Today, a large part of the world works remotely, and meetings take place online. The category of digital nomads spontaneously emerged and they aspire to both work and explore the world.

The one who notices and seizes this change the fastest will gain the most!
