An uprising trend of the nomadic lifestyle people are now living thanks to the internet has produced a new breed of traveller. The Digital Nomad. Which is a stupid term. But this refers to people leaving behind their 9-5 to chase the bright idea that woke them up at 3am and wouldn’t let them get back to sleep. Or the new sure thing app, inspired by multiple beers with a good friend at the pub. Whatever the motivation, the people that are taking action on these inspirations are able to make things happen a lot easier than ever before. Reduced living costs, exciting new environments, and access to a network of other motivated and interesting creatives and entrepreneurs, allow a fulfilling lifestyle which beautifully harmonises work and life aspirations. We take a look at some common areas around South East Asia and compare key factors.
This is an important shift in the way we work and live and should be considered the start of a new system of business. Flexibility and choice empowers and inspires those who embrace the remote work lifestyle. Businesses that embrace this demand benefit through reduced costs, better quality work, happier employees and gives an ability to scale up and down easily. Flexibility and adaptability are key to the modern business environments. Digital Nomads and businesses of all scales and verticals can work together to create new business models and a work:life balance that has not been achieved in history.
