One of the advantages of working in an office is that employees get to attend free or company sponsored training to help improve their skills for career advancement. This privilege will no longer be available if you decide to become a digital nomad, but it doesn't necessarily mean that there are no means to boost your knowledge. In fact, one of the most effective tools that you can use to educate yourself and to find inspiration is by listening to podcasts.
A podcast is a series of digital audio (or video) similar to a radio broadcast but in a form of audio files that people can download and listen to at their convenience. Many well-known personalities and experts in different fields are using this medium to disseminate information. It is one of the best educational tools that digital nomads use to improve their craft. Are you starting a career as a digital nomad? Are you searching for motivational or educational materials? Then check out the following podcast channels to get you started.
