Working remotely as a WordPress Freelancer

WordCamp Switzerland 2015
A location independent life has combined my passion for travel and inspired my work. I’d like to share my lessons learned as a Digital Nomad, working remotely as a freelancer for clients. How I stay motivated, find community, and how you can live a location-independent lifestyle as well.
