Interview with Jeff Kofman, Founder of Trint + Chiang Mai Remote Working
About This Episode
Episode 8 of The Remarkable Business Show
Thanks for tuning in for this episode and a special welcome if you are a first-time listener.
In this episode I talk about my experience of working remotely as a "digital nomad" in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand. It is a wonderful city with so much going for it: amazing weather, lovely people, a big digital nomad community, cycling, incredibly quick internet and a perfect location for seeing other parts of the world. (You'd be right in thinking that I enjoyed it!).

Quote of the Episode:
This episode's quote is from Mark Twain and fits nicely with the travel that I've been doing lately.
"Travel is fatal to prejudice bigotry and narrow mindedness and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts broad wholesome charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth for one's lifetime"
Going and seeing the world, experiencing new cultures and meeting people is the number one thing I would recommend to someone who wants to be successful in life both personally and with work.
