If you have spent any time in cities such as Medellin or Chiang Mai, you have probably met a digital nomad. In its simplest form, a digital nomad is an individual that is location independent and use technology to perform their job.
With the freedom to work anywhere, digital nomads often live nowhere, at least for long periods of time. This unconventional lifestyle has created its own culture of nomadic individuals, traveling the world with nothing more than a laptop and smartphone. While this lifestyle might sound idealistic, it is not without its troubles.
In this episode, you will learn how digital nomads combat loneliness on the road, why coworking spaces are so important to them and how anyone can become one.
To discuss this topic we are joined by Andrew Alexander, a digital nomad since 2014 and is in charge of Product, Sales, and Systems at VegReady.com, a location-independent company with team members scattered across the world. We are also joined by Lucas Seyhun, the founder and CEO of The Farm Soho, New York coworking spaces designed to nurture a community to promote organic collaboration between its members.
And for our side feature today, we have a new one call Computer says LOL, where we focus on technology-related jokes and humor. In this episode, we will listen to a 2001 comedian’s skit, that has aged well, on how to work for an IT help desk which will make you laugh.
