On The Road - WordPress, Travelling and Productivity

On The Road - WordPress, Travelling and Productivity

As the WordPress ecosystem grows and the demand for high quality professionals grows with it, clients want to hire the best in the field no matter where they are in the world. WordPress companies adapt too, hiring the best professionals no matter where they are. This gives WordPress professionals a unique flexibility and the opportunity to satisfy their passion for travel and adventure and to supplement their everyday life with a lot of awesomeness.

This talk is about the active, "on the go" lifestyle and how it helps you boost creativity & productivity and encourages you to never stop learning, which ultimately affects how you grow as the goal is not to reach a specific place, but to always keep moving.
