TMBA559: A Summer in Review
Play episode · 46 min

As the dog days of summer are coming to a close, we've decided to address several interesting topics that have come across our desk throughout the month of August.

One such topic came in the form of an article by entrepreneur and author James Altucher, who discussed why he thinks ‘NYC is dead forever’.

He argues that COVID-19’s effects on the business and social dynamics of New York are so far-reaching that the city will never recover. But we see it a bit differently - less as a terminal decline and more as an opportunity for reinvention.

We'll also be discussing some fundamental issues that we are seeing some remote job seekers face now that so-called ‘digital nomads’ have had their wings clipped.

Finally, you'll hear some of our thoughts on the "new normal" and what the future might look like for digital nomads in the wake of COVID-19.
