More and more people, professionals and freelancers, are choosing to be digital nomads nowadays.  According to the Independent Professionals and the Self Employed (IPSE), there is a 36-percent increase on the number of freelancers in the U.K. alone since 2008.

For some, nomadic working gives them the chance to have an upper hand in handling their time and comfort while earning a living. They just need connectivity and electronic device like laptop and phone and they are good to go.

Given that, GuardianCareers offered a Q&A to give some insights about location-independent lifestyle. It took place on Nov. 2 from 1:00 to 2:30 GMT with their expert panel.

During the talk, they discussed ways on how to set up as a remote worker, the advantages and challenges in working nomadically and the option for nomadic working, as reported by the Guardian.

To start with the Q&A, one should create a free Guardian account or log in using their Facebook or Twitter account to comment. Another way is to tweet them @GuardianCareers or email them questions to charlotte.seager@theguardian.com.

GuardianCareers workforce panel included Jodi Ettenberg, Chris Lorensson, Ellen Bard, and Suzzane Bearne. Ettenberg is the founder of the food and travel site Legal Nomad. She is a former lawyer and an award-winning writer, public speaker, and has been location-independent for the past eight years.

Lorensson is the founder of Nomadic Working. He shares his 13 years of experience of traveling remotely while working is part of the panel.

Bard, a psychologist by profession, can share her experience as a digital nomad as she has been in this field for four years. On the other hand, Bearne is a freelance journalist. After having a world trip for 15 months she started working and living overseas.
