It started on a deserted island in the caribbean, at 3am. Thirty friends had gathered from a dozen countries for a self-supported sailing trip in the virgin islands. We were around a two-story camp fire when we realized that a group of that size and variety could exponentially add value to our life, work, health, and hobbies.
We also realized that for many of us, we are able to work remotely, whether from home, a coffee shop, or a co-working space. In the U.S. alone, the number of people working from "home" is doubling in the next three years, rising from 34 to 64 million.
But why does "home" have to be a static place? What if we were able to pick up and join vibrant communities of people who live and work like we do? As they say, "home is where the heart (and wifi) is."
The connections made on that sailing trip were deeper than a typical holiday. We knew we wanted to continue creating environments that would bring international, like-minded folks together into a trusted community to work, live, and play to our fullest potential.
After our Bali trip, Curacao is our third adventure. Who knows where it goes from here.
