As much as I agree (being a freelancer also), I think there are platforms that aren’t representing the talent pool accurately. Unfortunately, not all freelancers are able to effectively tackle all of the other parts of freelancing (outside of the technical work: designing, developing, copywriting, etc.). Love to hear your team is fully nomadic! If you haven’t you should check out Rework, a book by the founders of Basecamp. They share insight into how they built their team (a large number being nomadic).
Thanks again for reading and sharing your thoughts!
