Do you want to be a digital nomad? Do you even know what it is – as many people haven’t heard of this 21st-century phrase? A digital nomad is someone who is able to use the power of the Internet and our ability to be ever-connected, to their business advantage. We rely more and more on our computers and on our Internet connection to do business. This applies whether we are an entrepreneur involved in Internet marketing or in charge of our own small business of some kind.
These days there are many individual tasks that can be completed over the Internet, or by using a Web connection, to say nothing of the programs and solutions that we are able to access “in the cloud,” or by using software as a service.
Slowly but surely we’re seeing the conventional administrative office disappearing before our eyes. It may be a slow process but we are all beginning to realise that we don’t have to be chained to a desk. So long as we are able to communicate efficiently and regularly we can establish ourselves wherever we would wish. To many this may mean working from home, but to others – the digital nomad in the broadest sense of the word – this may mean operating your business from wherever in the world you might choose.
If this conjures up dreams for you, sitting with your laptop computer underneath some shady palm tree in a tropical environment, then so be it. Many of us have the ability to plan for such a scenario. In any respect however you can become a digital nomad simply by cutting through the shackles which tie you to your desk chair, now.
We will find as time goes by that we will need to rely less and less on an adjacent, personal secretary. Many of the significant costs involved with employee and secretarial staff in this way will begin to disappear, as we will find that we can rely on outsourcing to virtual assistants to help us with our needs. As we take on the position of digital nomad, we are able to communicate with our team of virtual assistants digitally and make sure that all the tasks that need to be done – are done on time, and efficiently.
No matter how many responsibilities you may have and what kind of an organisation you’re in charge of, you can become a digital nomad in one way or another. You do however need to be sure that you outsource all of those mundane tasks that are holding you back from your personal interpretation of freedom.
An overreliance on infrastructure can often preclude a business from reaching its true potential in terms of expansion. When you have less overheads you have more flexibility. You are able to think more quickly and take decisions which could result in beneficial business development. Begin by delegating all those tasks to a team of virtual assistants and begin to understand exactly what digital freedom really means.
