Remote Work Entrepreneurs Meet Up


50% of the US workforce will be working remotely in 2020. From home, coffee joints and coworking spaces such as WeWork and Selina. But how do you prepare for these upcoming changes? World traveller and creative entrepreneur Mark van der Heijden (Wanderbrief) has been working remotely from more than 50 countries since 2013. He invites you on a journey into the world of remote work. Location-independent work opens many doors, giving you access to an international talent pool, no more commute and many other things. But it also brings challenges. Such as loneliness and work/life balance that is under pressure. In an informal setting, we talk about the advantages and disadvantages of both employees and employers. Last but not least we explore how remote work can make the world a better place.
