What is Independent Work?

Independent workers are exactly what they sound like: they are people who work for themselves. They don’t have a business and aren’t entrepreneurs, but they’re also not remote workers because they aren’t working for a boss. Instead, they have clients who hire them to do services that they specialize in. Freelancers are examples of independent workers. Independent workers take care of their own finances for their services and at the same time do work they feel they are experts at.

What is Digital Nomadism?

Digital nomadism involves two things: working through a laptop and smartphone and traveling to new places every so often. They may or may not have bosses as they can be remote workers or freelancers, but they are united by their ability to travel and desire to explore and experience new adventures. You can usually find them working in local cafes and libraries in foreign countries or relaxing on a beach with their computer or notebook in hand.

What’s the Difference Between Independent Workers and Digital Nomads?

The biggest overlap between independent workers and digital nomads is the idea that both can be “independent.” Independent workers can be freelancers, and digital nomads can be freelancers too. The difference lies within the definition of digital nomad: they can be freelancers and therefore independent workers, but they can also be remote workers and still report to a boss via telecommunications.
