Working remotely is all the rave in 2019, sis! Why go into an office when you can work from the comfort of your home, a coffee shop, or wherever you choose. If your work is primarily digital, more and more companies, entrepreneurs, and freelancers are opting for a location independent way of living their best life.
A digital nomad lifestyle gives you the time and opportunity you need to work anywhere on any timezone. This provides a boss queen the freedom she needs to travel the world while also working and making money. While many of us love traveling, no one wants to do it alone.
Remote work programs have become increasingly popular in recent years as more people convert to remote work positions. Digital nomad programs give remote workers the perfect option to work in exotic places, travel with like-minded people, and have all accommodations handled for you.
If you’re considering ditching the office for a remote work program, here are 5 digital nomad programs that will take you on an adventure you’ll never forget!
Remote Year is one of the most popular and biggest remote work programs. It sends a group of 50-80 professionals, freelancers, and entrepreneurs on a one-year travel adventure. There is also a four-month option for those who don’t want to commit to one year of travel.
Every month the group visits a new city throughout Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Africa. The total cost is only $27,000 and includes all travel and transportation accommodations between the countries, 24/7 WiFi, and access to community events and excursion activities.
WiFly Nomads is the perfect remote work program for those without remote jobs but looking to embark on the industry. WiFly Nomads is a destination-based educational travel program that teaches participants how to be a digital nomad while also helping you land a remote-based job that provides you with a lifestyle of adventure and freedom.
The two to four-week program takes place in Bali, Indonesia and costs $3999 without accommodation and $4999 with accommodation. The series of events includes hands-on workshops where participants learn the basics of living a nomadic lifestyle, how to build an online business, how to score remote jobs and how to build a personal brand.
WiFi Tribe sends a group of 12-18 professionals on monthly trips around the world. Their membership options allow participants to take trips back to back or spread them out across one year. Prices are fairly affordable and start at $800 a month for a shared room and $1,400 a month for a private room.
