The rise of the Digital Nomads

One of the biggest opportunities that were given to people when technology developed to the level that it had reached today is that it offers people the possibility of escaping while also being able to work. Maybe you are one of the people that have grown up with the stories their parents or grandparents used to say about the days when they had to work in the fields, the factories or a small office where they would not be able to escape until the late hours of night. Although we respect their legacy and everything they have done, today brings with it a new term for those that wish not to be tied to an office but dream of something bigger.

This sort of individuals is called digital nomads. They have the possibility of combining work with their dreams. This is either done by supporting themselves through project based or freelance work. And the best thing about digital nomads is that they can travel wherever they want because they can bring their work with them wherever they are. You can sit on a beautiful sunny beach in Greece and still be able to do your work, relax and be able to see the places you always might have dreamed of seeing. But you may ask why is this idea so appealing and how is it that people of all ages can do it?

There are 3 important reasons for why anyone can do this nowadays:

1. Internet is everything

The essential staring point in becoming a digital nomad is to always be connected to internet wherever you go. Nowadays telecommunications companies have made it easier for everyone to get connected to internet wherever we choose to be, by offering deals on data or offering only data SIM cards. Therefore, staying in touch with the rest of the world, doing your job and still keeping in touch with the people you have to work with/ for is made much easier.

2. Freelance opportunities have increased and are available for everyone

Working on freelance work remotely has become a very trendy thing for millennials. You can choose to take on various project that can be done only by using the internet, and sometimes you don’t even have to meet the client you are working for in person.

The rise of the digital nomads is seen to be more cost efficient to businesses who wish their short-term project to be handled by skilled freelancers. These are usually writers, developers, designers or digital assistants.

Opportunities that have risen in freelance are also available for those that do not know for sure if they would like to make a career out of being a digital nomad. So, you can now apply for travel placements as well. This sort of opportunities is normally taken by younger people that are not yet sure on what is the career path they would like to pursue, but also wish to travel the world. Also, studies show that 91% of employees say that they are more productive when working remotely, therefore it is a win-win situation for both the employees and the businesses,

3. The change in the mindset

As mentioned before the time from when our parents had to work and when we have to work has changed. They valued their jobs because it gave them stability for them and their families. However, we had to learn that taking advantage of the opportunities that arise is more important now. Stability is a factor that can be achieved later on.

Digital nomads have a different mindset than others, in which they value opportunity and freedom more than anything else.

When you combine all these factors, you can provide yourself with the perfect environment for a digital nomad. More and more people come to adopt this kind of lifestyle and have made the rise of the digital nomads possible today.
