Work From Anywhere
The ‘New Normal’ has been the breeding ground for a specific type of remote worker… the digital nomad. Although remote working may feel new, many workers have been working remotely and/or flexibly for many years before the pandemic hit.

If you’ve been following me for a while and read the content that I share, it may seem as though I’m a bit of ‘anti’ when it comes to the traditional business model of working in an office, or a single place of work.
