Greg CaplanFounder/CEO, Remote Year

Having run businesses with a fully global footprint for the best part of two decades, I had the privilege of observing the Remote Revolution unfold before it became a ‘thing.’ We have the great privilege of living in a truly flat world today, with the internet connecting us to incredible opportunities - and with great cost saving - at the tip of our fingers. Talent is now truly global. We can safely scout services from the comfort of our armchair. We can all be digital nomads! This book is a great read for anyone wanting to learn more about this powerful trend.

As our diverse group of companies expands, we are yearning for upwardly mobile talent to share our vision with and take our business to the next level. Without remote workers and the ability for talented hires to move about our organization, we would not be able to keep up with the demands of our clients and load, John’s insight into how to achieve this is invaluable.

In 2017, an attachment to a location, desk, or country seems a limiting affair for any creative being, especially to the entrepreneurial-minded. The Remote Revolution touches what is my modus operandi. Being location independent and living between the Caribbean, New York, London, and other cities for Sagaboi has opened up unprecedented opportunities, provided access to top talent, and unveiled inspiring and enriching experiences no singular location could offer.
