How to pursue acquisition entrepreneurship as a digital nomad
Digital nomadism is a rising trend among remote entrepreneurs, especially those passionate about travel, exploring new places, and getting to know different cultures. Anyone can achieve an exciting lifestyle – as long as their business allows it. Acquisition entrepreneurship can be one way to bridge the gap between the corporate world and the more relaxed lifestyle.
