Digital nomads can boost and diversify a local economy
Some communities embrace Digital nomads with open arms.
For example, Cornwall, in transport terms, is more remote from London than Lisbon – a slow, four-hour train journey as opposed to a two-hour flight.
However, it has the third-fastest-growing tech cluster in the UK: green tech, eco-tech, creative tech, embedded tech, space tech – a product, in part, of massive investment in super-fast broadband.
Digital nomads are a type of people who us technologies to earn a living and, more generally, conduct their life in a nomadic manner.
Such workers often work remotely from foreign countries, coffee shops, public libraries co-working spaces, etc
This is often accomplished through the use of devices that have wireless Internet capabilities such as smartphones or mobile hotspots
Successful digital nomads typically have a financial cushion.
Digital nomads may vary depending on status; common types of digital nomads include refugees, affluent people, younger people, and entrepreneurs.
People who become digital nomads often do so due to positive reasons, such as financial reasons and a career that allows for location independence.
Negative factors for why people become digital nomads include a reduced amount of full-time employment, political unrest, and a high cost of living in their country of origin.
