Becoming a remote worker

Many people sit at their desks dreaming of the freedom of remote work.

They might imagine themselves logging in, poolside from an exotic location.  For Michael, the dream has become a reality.  Michael joined Bean Ninjas full time in 2017 and is now working remotely from Canguu, Bali.  Between servicing clients, Michael is catching waves and exploring Indonesia as well as meeting like-minded remote workers in the Dojo Bali.  This sounds pretty perfect, but becoming a remote worker is a skill, one that has to be learnt and mastered.
