World nativs or digital nomads, a new trending job title, are a new breed of modern day explorer and pioneer, roaming the globe instead of “working from home.” An increasing cadre of bloggers, artists, and roamers are spending months at a time traveling to remote corners of the globe before returning to their home countries for a brief pit stop.

As has been clear for some time, the workplace and the working world is changing. According to Outsite, 40% of digital workers will be freelance by 2020, 90% of millennials would like more flexible lifestyles and jobs, while millenials are spending 50% of their income on rent in major cities.

A company called Roam is promoting this new way of living which allows its members to sign one lease and live around the world. Roam is a global network of communal living spaces that have Wi-Fi, co-working space, a chef’s kitchen, and comrades from around the world. Currently, to take advantage of Roam’s services you pay $500/week and can use living spaces in Ubud, Bali; Little Havana, Miami; Malasana, Madrid; San Telmo, Buenos Aries; and London.

There is a new cottage industry of bloggers and organizations ready to help anyone who wants to become a digital native.

Finally, as if the excitement of travel weren’t enough, Outsite, a company specializing in company retreats, believes remote workforces are saving the planet by having a lower carbon footprint, living healthier lives, and are better focused when they do work, thereby increasing productivity.
