Meet Your Mentors
Diego Bejarano Gerke
Diego has personally interviewed more than 1000 remote professionals. That's more than 750 hours, and along the way he's noticed a few common themes...
Humans all want to belong. Most of us want to grow professionally. And many of us are driven to explore the world. But often, these things don't go together. No matter how confident you feel about travelling, most will come to an inevitable point of social burnout - a feeling of hollowness from meeting a turnstile of new people who leave your life as quickly as they enter.
So, can you have it all? Travel, build your career, and feel like you belong? Well, that's the mission he dedicated himself to. And the result is WiFi Tribe - a community of 700 location independent professionals who travel and work together in 40 locations across the globe.
Yasmine was a digital nomad long before she even heard the expression. At 6 months old, her mother placed her on an elephant in India. Since then she's visited more than 100 countries and lived as a digital nomad in 10 of them - from Argentina, Malaysia to Hungary!
Work-wise Yasmine has run several businesses, some more successful than others - you live and you learn. She sold her first business, and after that she jumped right into founding an app which she launched in the Middle East and Indonesia. Currently she runs Svenska Nomader with her co-founders whilst she also works as a digital strategist.
Today she splits her time between Sweden and New York. Last year she spent a few months in Mexico and she'll be in Costa Rica at the end of 2019.
