The freedom of freelancing: deciding on a digital nomad journey – Maaike Leenders
Ever dreamt of just leaving it all behind, packing a bag and simply working wherever you want to? I did. And I did. After working in-house and on the road, my three years as a freelancer have taught me there are pros and cons to both. Based on my personal experience, I will talk about what to consider when you are thinking of trying a digital nomad lifestyle. Is it possible to travel and build a business at the same time? How much freedom does it really offer? And do you actually need to upend your whole life to do it?
