The recent emphasis on flexible work has driven a massive surge in freelancing.

With the right technology, the options of where you want to work are now endless. In this episode, we'll meet several expert and rookie digital nomads as they explore the possibilities stemming from this new way of working. We'll also meet Adam Ozimek, Chief Economist at Upwork, to hear his thoughts on the past, present and future of freelancing.
