Transactional Attorney with a focus on US Immigration. Burnt out doing the law firm thing. Trying to leverage skill to get on this digital nomad tip. Love the traveling experience, hostels, seeing new places, new cocktails etc etc.
My interest in DN lifestyle started when half of our company have been taking 1 month for remote work @ Ko Samui. It was truly cool but we observed quite some communication challenges. Communication seemed just “riskier” when online.
What were your worst situations caused by misunderstanding while communicating online with your teammates? What do you do to avoid misunderstandings?
Hi everyone and nice to e-meet you!
finally, after so long I found a job that allows me to work remotely.
But now? Do you have any practical advice that I can use to approach this new world?
In particular, I have to put my tax situation in order, do you know a good tax advisor from whom I can ask for advice? (I’m Italian but I live in France…I don’t know how long it will be…) )
Beyond that, any advice is welcome.
Every accountant is going to tell you that you really should be keeping separate accounts for all your businesses and even projects that may one day become businesses. But in my experience setting up a new account associated with an actual business entity is a pretty annoying process involving an in-person visit to a bank branch, proof of residence in that branch’s region, etc. Has anybody seen a bank that let’s you easily create a simple business checking account online and more importantly that would let you add additional accounts and transfer funds between them?
I’ll be travelling to Peru soon to volunteer and thinking to teach online in Cusco. I’m wondering what the best set-up would be for speeds high enough to teach via video-platform online. I’m open to getting a SIM Card with a data package, getting a dedicated internet provider for a private apartment or using an ethernet cable to increase speed.
Me & my gf holding not very strong passports, so have to apply for a visas quite often.
Soon need to make a visa applications from the countries we have no ties with.
The problem is that by the moment of making an applications, a bank statements will be outdated and the banks we currently use don’t send the paper statements internationally. That cause quite a lot of problems with visa applications. (the way i see it now is to open new account in each country, transfer funds to it and wait for 3 months)
Any suggestion on probably some fin tech banking startup where one can both open the account remotely (with using a local mailbox service i suppose) and get a paper statement delivered internationally?
Hope there is a solution to it
For those of you who work remotely, I think the community would love to hear about your problems … I know I would.
When working remotely what problems do you face with your day to day work and/or employer(s)? … Please list anything and everything that comes to mind!
Some topics that might trigger some inspiration for reply.
Regarding remote work in Asia/Far East, How have or could you successfully navigate the time zone and internet issue. It sounds like you really have to use a cowork space there to have adequate connection but I would be working mainly in US time zones with 12 hour difference, are there spaces open 24 hours? Is it possible to get good internet with a long term rental instead? I would need a really good connection, which it’s hard to tell if exists in some places at all. Thanks!
I am going to India for a few months and am planning on going to Kerala, Goa, Varanasi, Dharamshala, Rishikesh. What phone company has the best coverage and data speeds for those places, or India in general?
I also heard of people using a wifi stick to work remotely while traveling in areas where you may not be able to find a coffee shop, hotel, etc, with reliable wifi. What company sells the best one of those and where can you get it?
So… Trump is Prez. The world looks to the US as a role model. He doesn’t think Climate Change is real. We’re [email protected]#$ed.
Canadian Citizen here. Was considering Costa Rica for a long term solution, but they won’t deal with the impact as well. We were always fond of NZ and my parents spend at least 3 months of the year there along with knowing some citizens.
I’m a Canadian citizen with 6-7 years of EFL teaching experience and a teaching certification. After a sojourn doing other things, I am thinking of going back to teaching with an eye on location-independence. That means online.
Has anyone here done teaching EFL/ESL online?
How did you like it?
Did you market yourself, or did you go through an online agency?
How do you deal with time zone differences?
How is online different from classroom learning?
Thanks for your time.
I’ve noticed that recently a lot of us tend to prefer the ‘slow-travel’ rhythm, which is more about moving to a place for a month or two, and then living there, instead of changing your place every couple days.
However, what about those that still like the fast pace of travelling, with meeting lots of other travellers on the road? Are there any nomads here, that still like the backpackers’ lifestyle? That is: you travel through a whole country by yourself; you change your place of living much more often; but you still have to work a bit digitally in the meantime?
If yes, then how do you hang out with backpackers and keep up with their pace, while still having to work remotely?
I like both digital nomads & backpackers, but so far, barely I’ve seen any digital nomads in the backpacker places or vice-versa. I’m wondering why? In the end, it would be a clear connection of Work & Travel at the same time, two things that a lot of us propably enjoy very much at this moment.
I have just started working fully nomad a few days ago.
My first place outside of Germany will be the Dominican Republic next week.
However, I am already going to need the next flight for after that.
My carrier told me that they will bounce me at the check-in otherwise.
Which country in CA do you recommend for the next stop?
I need very stable internet, as I work a lot over skype. It does not need to be fast however. Cheap, but tropcial and at the sea would be preferred!
I thought about Panama, but I read that the internet sucks and it is expensive there.
For businesses that involves B2B sales, how do you do it if you’re in the other side of the world (e.g. you’re in Thailand and your customers are enterprises in California)?
What are the top tips to thrive in this setup?
What’s up there?
Is there anyone working for/running a social innovation project while on the road?
I used to live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I registered an LLC and the business address was the actual location of my office. I hung my business license in the location as well, as required.
The business does 100% of its business in the San Francisco Bay Area. Customers are there. My contractors are there. My business is focused there.
Well, the business hasn’t changed but I’m able to work remotely from anywhere in the world.
Considering my situation, how should I go about getting a business license in California?
I got inspired when someone else mentioned that nomads/100% remoters are kind of niche and even hard to find vs the norm. Is this really the case in other people’s experience?
I know most would jump at the chance if it was offered, at the same time for most people I know it would be a first for them and many I know would struggle with the self mgmt/productivity aspect but given time most would probably be onboarded successfully.
What I described as my ideal, speaking to another startupper a few months ago she described it as her hell. She would not want to be isolated and wants to see her team every day and hang out with them.
I am Sneha from India and wish to begin a nomadic lifestyle soon. Want to know if there are any Product / Project Manager nomads here and your experiences working remote. I generally understand that most digital nomads are writers / coders / designers etc. I would love to know how you began freelancing / remote working as a project manager, good avenues to get work and any advice you would like to share with the newbies.
