Its definitely true: networking can get you places.
If you’re a telecommuter living out in the countryside, staying connected with others in your industry can give you a heads-up when you need to find a new job.
For digital nomads basking in the sun of a distant tropical island, connecting with others is even more important.
Meeting new people, creating and maintaining connections isn’t just done for the sake of finding a new job or your next freelance gig. Being social is a basic human need that we all have to fulfil (whether or not we identify as introverts).
Since a lot of us do our jobs online nowadays, there are more opportunities to connect and make new friends than ever before. In fact, sometimes the amount of choice can be pretty overwhelming. That’s also not counting the immense amount of social media out there.
So take the time to look through these hand-picked forums and communities especially for digital nomads and remote workers.
I try to keep these lists up to date – so if I’m missing anything, don’t be afraid to contact me!
