When you think of remote work, you can almost always relate it to having a drink with a tiny umbrella on a beach somewhere exotic while tapping on your laptop or having a Zoom meeting in a cozy mountain lodge in front of a roaring fire. That is not always the case. Some people are just grateful to be working remotely because it is a necessity for the health of their child and family.
In this The New Nomad episode, Rowena Hennigan joins Andrew Jernigan and Allen Koski. Becoming a mother at 40, Rowena regales the audience with her experience as a digital nomad and tips on how to balance work and family. Currently based in Spain, she talks about the importance of reset and mental health - why it should be a priority for remote workers everywhere. Our three experienced nomads openly discuss how working remotely while travelling with a child is a whole new level of challenges and rewards - and not always pina coladas.
