My name is Sarah, and I am a digital nomad.

The term “digital nomad” is becoming more and more popular amongst travellers, and not only does it describe a certain way of working, but it actually encompasses an entire lifestyle. Being a digital nomad does not simply mean to be able to work from anywhere you want. As a digital nomad you make the conscious choice of not only working online, but also living the life of a nomad and herewith being location-independent. Most digital nomads don’t just have one job; a lot of them work as a freelancer in their free time or host a blog or podcast.

We’ve all experienced it before. The alarm clock goes off for the tenth time and you continue to hit the snooze button. You finally wake up, groggy and angry, filled with bitterness and resentment at the world, your job, and life in general.

And that’s before your first cup of coffee.

Studies have shown that, in order to win at life, you need to win your morning. And with a little help from technology, mindfulness, and good food, you can start to take back your morning and your life.

Coworking Spaces in Croatia

Being part of the evergrowing freelance community has made me realize that, while working alone, sometimes you find yourself in a rut. This state often manifests itself as a lack of creativity, inspiration and motivation.

Importance of work strategy improvement had an influence on young professionals. They imagined a low-cost office space where people gather and work together. Not only it is a relatively inexpensive, but also a very productive way to carry out an activity they are assigned to.

The idea came to a realization and so-called coworking spaces have begun to spread rapidly among the freelance community. Since the numbers of these kinds of spaces are increasing each day, every developed country has at least a couple of coworking locations within its borders. Croatia is one of them.

If you’re anything like me, the only thing that’s keeping you from living a life of epic adventure is your account balance. I was once so poor that my bank reported ‘suspicious behaviour’ when my mother deposited a chunk of cash for my birthday! Apparently that was enough to trigger the alarm at Barclays. Surely this is the financial equivalent of bitchy backtalk?

Upwork Evolution

Last night, when I received an email from Upwork titled as an important update to Upwork’s pricing, I thought that finally some positive change will happen to the world’s biggest freelancers and freelance jobs marketplace.

Over the past few months, freelancers and businesses have experienced Upwork’s website and Team App not working for hours, and we’re using Upwork’s search engine, which would give results that have nothing to do with the search query. Not to mention the changes in the algorithm that calculates freelancers’ job success rate. Due to it, many independent contractors were left angry and in disbelief.

Yesterday, we at Nomadship thought Upwork is finally changing in a positive way, but we were wrong.
