Every week, we share the story of an inspiring Remote Worker and Remotive reader, here is Marcus' story:
1.- Can you please tell us a bit more about: Who are you, and what do you do? :)
Sure, I am Marcus, Digital Nomad with homebase Berlin. I am founder of the first conference for digital nomads DNX, I am organizing the DNX together with my girlfriend and cofounder Felicia.
I love to hack and optimize my life in all areas.
2.- Why do you work remotely, and how does it feel?
Working location independent as an entrepreneur is the ultimate freedom lifestyle.
You regain and redefine your time, location and purpose of life. It feels like a roller coaster ride that should never stop!
3.- What software do you use?
I use a lot of apps and tools to stay focused and productive on the road. I love Wunderlist the most powerful To-Do app: You can share lists with other coworkers, assign tasks and keep your private and business stuff on track. All in a beautiful User Interface.
Working on bigger projects I use Trello. Collaborating with business partners all over the world I use Dropbox, Google Drive, Skype and Google Hangouts. Pocket helps me to stay focused on my tasks. If I find an interesting article, I save it for later and read it offline whenever and wherever I am.
Coach.me supports me in achieving my goals by setting up routines to structure my day. Seven helps me to stay fit on the road with functional training. All you need is a wall and your own body weight, it will dramatically improve your fitness level.
Headspace is the best app to learn meditation and stick to it. The guided meditation helps you to set up your new habit as a daily routine. Meditation and mindfulness takes you and your business to the next level. Pzizz helps you to recharge your batteries with a power nap. It's also very useful for business owners with sleepless nights. It leads you into a peaceful sleep
4.- What would be your ideal setup?
I am nearly there... Just waiting for more wireless wireless connections and power to get rid of all my cables.
