In the modern world that we now live in, that we have come to know and love, it is more than fair to say that we are immersed in and surrounded by a world of incredible experiences and places. Some of them are of our own creation, and others are the wondrous creations of the natural world. It goes without saying that travel is something that we all love in our own way, and want to include in our lives. In the way of being able to successfully commit to travelling as often as one would like to, it is fair to say that this has not been an easy feat to accomplish for most (if not all) of us. Travel is not free, and while it is arguably one of the few things in the world you can buy that makes you richer, you also need to have income or money in the bank to get from point A to point B. The balancing act of a fulfilling life and a thriving career is one that has never been especially simple, but thanks to the rise of technological forces like the remote workplace, it is becoming easier for those that want to pursue that kind of life.
Now, striking that perfect balance is being made easier than ever. If people wish to carve a different path more suited to themselves and their journey, they no longer must sacrifice either work or travel in favour of the other to keep afloat. Now, individuals can pursue a remote career and enjoy all the world has to offer, without having to sacrifice professional longevity and success. People truly can have it all, and it is all thanks to the ever-rising forces of technology and rapid digitalisation. The remote career is a relatively fresh concept, but it is one that has taken off in leaps and bounds since the dawn of its introduction to the world. Essentially, a remote career is one that can adhere to any industry or job title, so long as the individual has a genuine skillset, a reliable device to work from, and a stable (and preferably fast) internet connection to work from.
This newfound lease on a full life was, at first, a niche, but has quickly ballooned to become an international revolution that is capturing the hearts and minds of individuals from all over the world, from all backgrounds, and from all circumstances. It is easy to understand why. If you want to go and get tan, then you can pack a bag, grab your laptop or tablet, and jump in the car to work by the beach for the week. If you are wanting to trek in the African jungle and see gorilla families with experienced guides, you can get on a plane and work from Africa for the week before setting off on the Saturday to trek into the wild and bond with the families from other species. There is no shortage of adventures and experiences you can have if you work remotely, and there is no timeframe that you have to be back at home to work from, either. This is a whole new frontier in travel, and it is taking the world by storm.
Travel has always been magical, and now it is more wondrous than ever, thanks to the rise of technologies like that behind the growth of the ever-expanding remote career path. Never have people been so inspired and so thrilled by the chances that the world has to offer them, and never have they had more flexibility to experience and explore those chances in depth. The remote workforce is one that is continuously proving time and again that not only is it valuable, but it is a force to be reckoned with. Now that technological advancement and rapid digitalisation have made this notion possible, there is no going back. And why would anyone want to? A remote career is not for the faint-hearted, and of course there is hard work behind the scenes of constant travel, but for those willing to work for it, it is worth it in every way.
The world of travel is one that is enthralling and special, and it is one that is also near impossible (if not entirely impossible) to experience without money in the bank or a steady income (for those who are lucky enough to have both, that is even better). In recent years, however, this mentality has begun to shift, as the world has become more technologically enhanced, and we have become more familiar and even reliant on it from all fronts – including how we travel. What was once considered a balancing act of achieving a fulfilling life and a thriving career simultaneously, is now easier than ever. This is especially true for individuals who want to travel, but have felt in the past like work prevented them from doing so as far and as often as they wanted to. Remote work is the perfect solution, giving these individuals the chance to travel and work simultaneously, letting them truly have it all.
