Why Millennials Are Considered Digital Nomads?
July 9, 2021
A generation of nomads, Millennials are the next generation of entrepreneurs, they tend to be highly restless, disenchanted with the status quo, and ready to make their mark on the world. The key ingredient to being able to create an environment for a successful business startup lies in having the right attitude. The attitude that you need to have to be a success is being willing to learn new things, trying something that might not have been done before, and believing in yourself. This belief is the backbone of every successful entrepreneur, they don’t just look at the opportunities, but they are willing to try new things and figure out how to do it. You can take what the Internet has taught us and apply it to your business, and the best part is that it doesn’t matter if you are a traditional company or an online-based company. The Internet is a medium that can be used by anyone, and that is one of the best things about it.
What Are Digital Nomads?
Digital nomads are those who use communications technology to make a living from the traveling and moving world and perform their daily life in a highly mobile manner. These workers often work remotely either from coffee shops, parks, co-workspaces, or recreational vehicles, sometimes for long periods of time. These workers are not experts on all forms of transportation modes, so they seek out alternative routes if possible, but they are very comfortable with using digital technology to communicate with their service providers and receive updates on weather and other conditions. They are the ones that most often “go it alone” when choosing a way to make money through online work. In fact, one of the digital nomads in our group recently told me that he had started his business with nothing but a laptop, an internet connection, and some basic software, and had made over six hundred dollars in his first week. He said that he got all his information online and sent his first order, a tent, from a remote location in Canada, via PayPal.
What I think we have to realize is that digital nomads are much more connected and in touch with their environment than most others who are working in an office on computers twenty-four hours a day. They need to have trust in their environment and themselves to make long-term decisions and make long-term plans and they must be realistic about what they expect to get from such a lifestyle. But digital nomads are generally very open about their lifestyle, and they tend to look at the problems of others as opportunities for learning.
Millennials as a cohort have different values and measures of success. The parameters are entirely different compared to their predecessors, and this makes complete sense. As life fulfillment is a higher priority than job stability, being able to travel and experience different cultures and locations is a must. And it was all going well until the pandemic started. The changes brought by the pandemic have changed their perspectives and views in regards to owning a property, and now this generation is has become a generation of property investors.
There are several possible reasons for this shift, ranging from a rise in disposable income, and greater access to home financing options, and obviously, all the hard lessons that the pandemic has taught us. The need for stability has arisen following the restrictions and measures imposed, and now this generation is getting on the property ladder faster and steadier than ever before. With the variety of mortgage services and advisors available, this generation is set to change the property market in a matter of years.
