Remote workers and digital nomads are pretty lightweight when it comes to the resources we need. That being said, we still need to be picky – not only to get the best value for money, but to ensure that we can continue to do our jobs uninterrupted. That’s why I’ve written up a couple of reviews on some of the most important online tools we need in our day-to-day jobs.
These reviews aren’t just for those who aspire to be location independent. Online courses are revolutionary and affordable. Pretty much anyone can go online now and learn a whole new set of skills. Whether you want a promotion or are keen to start your own online business, e-learning can open up a whole new world to you.
VPNS (virtual private networks) have unfortunately become a necessity for anyone who does anything online. If you’re running an online business or even doing your own banking, protecting your privacy is paramount. For digital marketers, accessing the entire Internet (not just sites allowed by geolocation) is essential. Thankfully, there are plenty of great and affordable VPNs on the market today.
A lot of modern banking isn’t modern… exactly. Financial institutions often stick to habits of the past and then suddenly try to modernize. This turns them into complicated messes which actually make life difficult for their customers. Again, there’s good news. A whole host of new digital banks are storming the market. Many of these offer fantastic deals for those who aren’t tied to one location and need to manage their finances without restrictions.
Gone are the days of simply learning a job and sticking to it for the rest of your life. The job market changes frequently with new skills and technologies cropping up every day. It’s vital that we keep our skills up to date: especially if you’re looking to land that next promotion or even start your own income streams.
You can literally take the Internet in your pocket nowadays. For digital nomads in particular, restrictions on data roaming can be a huge pain. Thankfully there are a good few companies that offer globetrotters reasonable deals.
