As digital nomads, we are an extremely diverse bunch: full stack web devs VPN’ing into servers from café’s in Ubud, Bali; social media managers checking in on clients using mobile hotspots in the Colorado Rockies; affiliate marketers researching new products at a co-working space in Bansko, Bulgaria.
What we all have in common, however, is remoteness.
In a real sense, we are not physically where we work. There is a space between wherever we are typing on our laptops and those we need to be in touch with.
We can’t walk down the hall to have a quick face-to-face conversation with a client or co-worker or employee.
This makes effective communication across distance, especially written communication, critical for any successful digital nomad.
