As you may have already experienced, nomads and solopreneurs wear many hats. As opposed to an employed worker, responsible for just one task or function, the exciting part of your work is that you are in charge of a number of roles, which allow you to shape the business with your own individual style. These might include tasks such as: developing your offering and running the operations, hiring expert help, feeding the marketing channels, setting up the necessary IT infrastructure, securing the finance, and finally, safeguarding your business.
Safeguarding your business – security and privacy – is one of the most challenging aspects for many nomads and solopreneurs. And to be perfectly blunt, for many of you the prospect of dealing with cybersecurity is so boring it presents you with a direct path to Yawnville.
