While speaking to many of you who are keen to move into remote work this year, I’ve been hearing the same common beliefs over and over that are stopping so many of you from beginning to explore opportunities where you could work remotely or start freelancing.
Here are the top 6 common beliefs that might be holding you back right now. We hope we can bust these ‘myths’ to help kick-start your remote work or freelancer journey!
Having lived and worked in London for over 10 years, myself and my other half left the hustle of London in May 2017 to travel indefinitely, beginning by basing ourselves in Florence, Italy for a few months. From there we went onto a few months in Lucca, Italy followed by Lisbon, Portugal… we slowly travel around while working remotely choosing to base ourselves in different parts of the world for months at a time rather than moving from place to place quickly. We started off basing ourselves across the UK and the rest of Europe – exploring the countryside and spending time in the great outdoors as much as I can.
Being location independent can be challenging at times. We’ve found it all to be incredibly worth it! If you’re thinking about travelling while working remotely or if you’ve already begun but you’re curious to hear how others are doing it then here are a few things we’ve learned from our journeys working remotely on the move over the past two years.
We’ll be bringing you blog posts about working remotely, freelancing, self-employment, slow travel, running a small business and some house-sitting along the way.
