Why LinkedIn does not work for me anymore

Why LinkedIn does not work for me anymore

Some of my followers may have seen me pop up on LinkedIn. I thought it might be useful. I used to love LinkedIn and connecting to people there, expanding my network and matching questions and people together, creating opportunities. So I thought after being away for many years: let’s give it a go. Profile made, and the suggested people started to show, and I realised how limited a platform as LinkedIn actually is.

My reasons why I do not want to be a Digital Nomad (anymore)

My reasons why I do not want to be a Digital Nomad (anymore)

it was a dream: travelling the world and working online, becoming a digital nomad. It sounded hip, free, it had the ring of a vagabond to it, it sounded daring, unadjusted, lonely, recluse and exclusive and just what I needed because of all those words. It became an emotion and I wanted it to be my lifestyle. But now, I removed the word: digital nomad” from my bio, I never use the hashtag anymore. And there are a few reasons…
