Abstract [en]

Working from a distance rather than at the office is getting easier with the rise of current

digital technologies, making digital nomadism an alternative to local entrepreneurship. This

study investigates 5 digital nomads in their current carrier as geographically unbound

entrepreneurs with a qualitative interview method and analyses how they are using digital

communications to their advantages, what downsides they might experience and the upsides

of working this way which resulted in a framework. This study shows a lifestyle that opens

up for an efficient workstyle with a potentially high life quality through use of outsourcing,

digital communications and geographical freedom. The study also shows a paradox of using

the internet to be free from traditional bounds by relying the business model on it and can be

the only thing that binds the digital nomad.
