Feeling exhausted and uninspired at work? Maybe it's time for you to take a one-week, one-month, or one-year work-travel "workcation!"

Sam Pessin is the Co-Founder and CEO of Remote Year, a community-based work and travel company on a mission to help online professionals live and work from 30+ countries around the globe. Having grown up as a global citizen, traveling the world with his parents, Sam knows a thing or two about the power of experiencing new cultures and stepping outside your comfort zone.

In Episode 129 of Badass Digital Nomads, Kristin and Sam talk about everything Remote Year has to offer, from week-long retreats helping you recover from work-related burnout to year-long remote work and travel programs. You’ll gain insight into how Remote Year chooses the best locations for digital nomads, Sam’s favorite travel destinations around the world, and how he stays productive while running an international online business.

As Sam so wisely says, “People who are in more inspiring locations and enjoying their day-to-day life and weekends… will be more productive at work.”

Whether you're interested in a 1-week, 1-month, or 1-year remote work-travel program, Remote Year has options for you. Tune in to find out which experience is right for you!
