Cloud9 Insight CEO Carlene Jackson has been quoted in The Times, exploring ‘digital nomads’ and the rise of remote working in far-flung locations.
The article explains how countries such as Barbados and Estonia have launched one-year visas aimed at remote workers, switching focus away from short-stay tourism amid the uncertainty of the pandemic.
In the article, Carlene – described as an A-type personality – says: “Running my business remotely from Annecy has worked. I get up early to work, the kids are remotely home schooled, and then we all stop and spend time together. The key has been empowering my employees to take decisions without me, lots of business owners just don’t feel confident enough to do that, and if you haven’t empowered your team you will become a bottleneck for decisions.”
