I’ve long been a fan of Daniel Pink. The book with the most impact on me was called Free Agent Nation.
There is a life outside of Corporate America and that place isn't the desert nor the slums that we often equate with going solo. Just visit your local coffee shop or WeWork space and you will meet the varied citizens of Free Agent Nation.
It is these concepts that will allow us to be free to live and work anywhere we please. Through technologies and cultural acceptance, we are now our own agents.
