"With work-from-anywhere remote jobs, professionals gain a lot of control over their work lives by being able to live wherever they choose,” says Brie Reynolds, senior career specialist at FlexJobs. “That sense of control lends itself really well to people who aspire to travel and work, and it can make them both happier AND more productive as professionals. It can also foster a sense of loyalty from professionals to their employers because they appreciate the opportunity to live and work wherever they choose."
