So you’ve finally decided to take the plunge and become a remote worker. Why not take your next plunge at the beach on vacation?
When you became a remote worker, you also became a mobile worker, virtual nomad, and location independent worker, enabling you to travel while still getting work done. You’re not bound to a desk anymore. You can work in a Scottish field filled with craggy rocks and craggier sheep or from a nice hotel room with a view of the Taj Mahal.
