“A smile is always the best form of introduction”

…Except when writing a blog post, then use an emoji


Hello from Fraser, Dave and Justin… and welcome to the Embark blog!

We’re pumped you’re here!

We started Embark because we’re excited about the future of work and what it means for people who want to explore the world. At Embark, we’re focused on building supportive and inspiring communities, and helping them work and live in dynamic cities around the world. This blog is for location independent professionals and digital nomads who want to join a community of entrepreneurs, techies and creative professionals.

When it comes to the topics of work and travel, there’s plenty to write about. Our goal is to take a fun and informative approach to be a useful resource to you. If we do it right, we hope we’ve started a conversation or shared a neat idea. Here are some examples of the type of content and topics you can expect from us:

Entrepreneurs and location independent professionals
Sharing and exchanging experiences make us happy. We’ll connect with interesting entrepreneurs and other location independent professionals for interviews, business profiles and guest contributed content. Regardless of your field of work, there’ll be a little something for everyone.

Places we’ve traveled
From finding the best cup of coffee, the best wifi, or the best coworking space, we’ll weigh in on destinations we’ve traveled to. Expect these posts to be part destination review and part fun stories from our travels.

Remote working productivity tips and tricks
Wondering what the three most important things are to pack for South America? Looking for a way to track your expenses in different countries and currencies? We’ll share our favorite work/travel hacks, products and technology that simplify our lives while we work and explore.

Startup focused content
As a startup, we’ve had our fair share of exciting moments and bumps in the road. We’ll highlight some of the issues we’ve faced, as well as our approaches to solving them. Heck, we might even ask for your input.

Contests and giveaways
Occasionally, we’ll post about contests or giveaways for free stuff… because who doesn’t get excited about free stuff!?

We’re excited that you’re here and look forward to exploring these topics and more, together.
