To this day, I still have to pinch myself when I think about my career. I started working as a full-time digital nomad almost 10 years ago, and it’s been nothing short of incredible. Whether you’re a remote worker or are thinking about taking that leap, these are the 5 truths about the remote working lifestyle I’ve found over the years.

The Truth About the Remote Working Lifestyle

Once you’ve lived that remote working lifestyle, it’s hard to think about life any other way. For me, remote work provides freedom, happiness, and fulfillment – here are the 5 truths to living that laptop life:

One thing about working remotely that’s invaluable to me is the fact that my time is used how and when I want. My clients generally give me deadlines with ample time, which allows me to plan my days however I want to; if I want to work at 7 am or 7 pm, I can!

After working remotely for just a short time, I realized that I was way more productive than I ever was working in a corporate office setting. I always feel excited to get to work (because I’m proud of what I do, and I enjoy it!), and I don’t feel like I’m dragging myself to a cubicle.

Feeling and being productive are major ego boosters, and they make it easy for you to…
