If you are in the industry of remote work, then you might have heard about remote work visas recently. One of the biggest benefits of having a remote job is the massive perk of living and working wherever you want. The remote work environment has advanced extremely fast due to the state of the world pandemic. Millions of workers now have the flexibility to work from anywhere they desire. With a huge portion of people working from home already, remote work is the present, and flexible working is the actual future of work.

Have you ever dreamed of having every Friday off work? Do you ever feel like a two-day weekend is not enough time to recoup? You’re not alone. Many people also feel this way. As more and more workers are transitioning from a five-day workweek to a four-day workweek, let’s explore why this is happening and the potential of you getting an extra day off soon.

If you haven’t quite yet warmed up to the idea of cryptocurrency, you are in good company. Only an estimated 15% of Americans currently own some form of digital currency like Bitcoin or Ethereum. A large portion of these investors has bought in over the past two years. Regardless of your investment stance, there is a strong possibility that cryptocurrency will be impacting you and the future of business transactions.

One of the most prominent trends observed in the global workforce is the mass-populace transitioning from a traditional nine-to-five office lifestyle to a remote working environment. Most of the common problems people run into when they start working from home are due to a lack of clear expectations and companies’ unchartered remote infrastructure. However, despite any external hurdles, there is still a lot you can control to become just as productive while working from home.

A substantial portion of a business’s success is attributed to hiring suitable candidates at the correct time. Remote working has become the new normal, but hiring high-quality candidates and virtual onboarding can be challenging. The hiring process can be stressful enough in person and even more difficult in a remote setting. If you plan to hire remote workers for your team, follow these tips to hire the best talent out there.

Wealth is far more than financial prosperity and can be measured in a variety of different ways. One of the most valuable resources people have is time. True wealth is a combination of health, happiness, time freedom and many other factors — not just digits in your bank account.

One of the growing trends that the world has seen over the past year is the rise of remote work. As working from home is continuing to gain some serious steam around the world, more and more predictions have been taking place as to whether or not these trends will proceed into the future. With the rise of modern technology and the introduction of new careers that didn’t exist 100 years ago, the future of work will be much different than what we witnessed in the previous century.

“Digital nomad” describes someone who travels full-time while working online. It’s a lifestyle that offers enticing freedoms. But it also requires the ability to constantly adapt to new environments and find ways to work in places that aren’t ideal. In the last few weeks, a lot more people started working remotely. But almost no one is traveling. Unfortunately, this sudden global shift to remote work is tied to the terrifying reality of a global pandemic. People who can are now working from home to reduce potential exposure and the spread of the novel coronavirus. And many of them are discovering that working outside of the office comes with a whole new set of challenges. 

Why pay $2,000 for a shoebox in New York or San Francisco when I could have Cartagena, Bucharest or Chiang Mai instead? Scores of millennials, depressed by corporate jobs and stifled by the economic slump since the 2008 Great Recession, have dropped out of the American rat race to tote their laptops to countries like Vietnam, Mexico and India, drawn by the low cost of living.

If you are currently on a remote job search and making a transition to the online workforce, you may have discovered that this is not an easy transition. This is not just true for those who are switching their job search to online, either. With the right techniques and level of effort, though, you can make this transition to online work a lot more streamlined.

Team building has been pinpointed as a very important investment that you can make as a business owner. If you have a team of employees, you probably spend a lot of time considering ways to boost productivity and high-quality work. However, it is important to also spend time building company culture and finding the right work-life balance among your team.

Working from home is a dream come true for anyone previously working a 9-5 office job with a long and strenuous commute. But with the great freedom that you receive from a remote job comes the challenge of keeping yourself motivated. Procrastination is a notorious problem that every remote worker will eventually experience. Here are some of the most impactful ways to stay productive while working from home.

The business world has woken up to the idea of female leadership. We hear dozens of success stories about powerful and influential women, from household names like Oprah Winfrey and Susan Wojcicki, to startup founders like Katrina Lake and Tracy Lawrence. Yet powerful women are often judged more harshly compared to their male peers. Yale School of Management’s Victoria Brescoll led a study where participants read a fictional story about a police chief preparing for massive protests. In one version of the story, the protest got out of hand and the chief didn’t send enough squad cars, resulting in 25 people getting injured.

Internet users spend approximately two hours a day on social media. That’s enough time for brands to show them dozens of marketing messages, including paid ads. The volume of these messages is so high that Facebook is essentially one of the largest advertising networks. But some organizations aren’t just marketing through social media. They’re using social media to create new, alternative business models.

Not too long ago, the concept of catering specifically to digital nomads was too new and strange for most countries to truly understand all of the long-term benefits. It looks like things are going to be making a drastic change soon as countries are starting to open up to the reality of how financially sustainable it is to start attracting digital nomads with specialized visa options.

As you start to get involved in remote work, the idea of having your own online business will eventually come into play. Should you consider buying an online business or building one from the ground-up? Both of these can be rather lucrative if you know what you are doing. Buying an established business can pay off a lot more in the long run than starting one from scratch. If you are curious about why buying is better than building an online business, here are some tips and information for you to explore.

Recruiting and hiring top-quality workers is one of the most difficult aspects for any type of business, but when you decide to hire remotely a new layer of complexity gets added. Hiring remote workers requires a slightly different approach and process. Due to the massive shifts in the global workforce, the field of online remote work has been grown inexorably. Consequently, there has never been a better time to scale and grow a remote team.

Are you having a difficult time finding the right remote workers for your business? It can be a little tricky to find the right remote employee that can deliver the work you expect. At the same time, you need a remote worker who is dependable and easy to get in contact with.

Companies across the globe face unprecedented times with most people now in lockdown as governments try to manage the effects of the Covid-19. As economies stutter, job losses are inevitable and for those lucky enough to be in employment many will work from home for the foreseeable future. The outlook may seem gloomy but the crisis may open up opportunities for some businesses to grow. Here are some tips on how remote workers can help your company grow during a down economy.

COVID-19 (coronavirus) is impacting the world’s population in a multitude of ways, and many of the long-term changes it will induce to our society will not be immediately apparent. Although these are uncertain times, some of these changes will be positive, especially with regard to remote work and online education. For years, these two industries have been increasing at a steady rate, but now businesses everywhere are testing out remote work for employees and clients.

Technology — including smartphones, social media and fast and reliable internet connectivity — seems to have come together in such a way as to capture our attention during every waking moment. Although such technology can harm those who misuse it, for many it has become an invaluable resource, dramatically improving their lives.

In the modern workplace, new technology and applications are appearing every day, enabling streamlined processes and improved productivity that boosts the bottom line. The question is: How can people move ahead as their lives at work and lives away from work become increasingly intertwined?

The buzz around remote working is growing (and here to stay), as companies seek to gain a competitive advantage when it comes to hiring and retaining the best talent. In this economy, hiring top-notch employees has become increasingly more difficult and job-seekers themselves are more conscious of their need to establish a better work-life balance. Yet even with that said, remote working is not for everybody. So how can your company decide whether, and how, a remote workforce could be beneficial?

The world has advanced in many ways since computers and the internet became ubiquitous. A mere 30 years ago, the average company would have never considered hiring a remote team that they would never see in person. Today, it’s not only becoming more common, but in many cases is the preferred option. If you’re leaning toward assembling a staff of telecommuters, keep this quintet of suggestions in mind.

Remote work is becoming increasingly more popular for a variety of reasons. If you are looking to work from anywhere while building a global powerhouse that will scale, then make sure to check out this week’s video. There are a lot of advantages to creating a remote team and our expert will help you decide if it fits your future goals.

Travel hacking expert, best selling author, and founder of Global Career, Mike Swigunski, explains how to travel around the world for practically free! He has been working and traveling internationally for more than 10 years and his journey has taken him to over 80 countries. Over the years, Mike has earned hundreds of thousands of dollars in free travel and is excited to share everything he’s learned. 

Opening a business bank account requires more effort than opening a personal account – there are documents that need to be gathered, names to be determined and licenses to get in order – but all the work is worth it. “Always shop around,” said Mike Swigunski, founder and CEO of Global Career. “Banks are as keen to gain new customers as much as they are to retain current ones, so use this to your advantage to get better deals.”

“My first job after college was teaching financial economics at a university in Prague. While this was an amazing opportunity, it still tied me to one location…”

The quote above mirrors the mind of the typical “travelpreneur”. Essentially, travelpreneuers are entrepreneurs on a wanderlust spectrum, and for Mike Swigunski, an American author and online business expert, building brands and selling businesses while traveling through 85+ countries is the true definition of success.

What do all of the following activities have in common: driving a tank in Lithuania, trekking on one of the world’s largest glaciers in Patagonia, attending a wonderful wedding in India, hitch-hiking the entire south island of New Zealand, and taking part in Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany? The answer? Mike Swigunski was able to enjoy all of these experiences while still earning a six-figure income. He reckoned that wealth was more than just financial success, but also location independence (the ability to work from anywhere in the world) and “time-freedom” (the ability to be free from the constraints of the normal 9-to-5).

You already have a laptop, cell phone, and suitcase—but digital nomads recommend these must-haves to complete your remote office kit. After working from home for more than a year, we’ve gotten used to the absence of water-cooler gossip and desk lunches. Zoom calls are second nature now, and we’ve become masters of juggling work with kid (or cat) feedings, laundry, and cooking. Do we even know how to “office” anymore? 

In business, success depends on being able to see where trends are headed and opportunities lie. Good instincts are needed to know where to look and what to look for, but if your insights are accurate, then your rise to the top can be swift. Identifying trends is in the DNA of Thrasio founders Joshua Silberstein and Carlos Cashman. After speaking with multiple successful business owners, all signs were pointing towards Amazon. They repeatedly heard first-hand experiences from people that were absolutely “crushing it” on Amazon.

The idea of traveling the world and working remotely may seem like a fairytale dream for many individuals. They think that this is only for top company executives who earn large salaries and have expensive jets. Once upon a time, Mike Swigunski had this same mindset. Today, he knows better.

Ask yourself, “What job would you do if no one paid you to do that job?” The answer to that question is a clue to what you are passionate about. And that is what you should do for a living because it is that passion that will help you get through tough situations, help you survive where others might fail and succeed, no matter what.

While traveling the world and working remotely as a digital nomad was a popular trend before the global pandemic, the lockdowns happening around the world means the ability for influencers to travel has been drastically impacted. Despite this there are a handful of leaders in the online space who have exemplified resilience and gone on to create thriving businesses. According to MBO Partners, 7.3 million Americans identify as digital nomads which is an increase of 2.3 million from the previous year – proving that this movement is certainly not only a trend.
