It should be clear by now that the future of how we conduct and transact business changed forever over the spring of 2020.

A lot of those changes weren’t great, but some of them weren’t awful. One silver lining on the cloud of this global pandemic has been an acceleration of digital means of communication and transaction. Not only are we viewing digital interaction with more acceptance, but also with more trust.

That increase in trust, extrapolated out, means very good things for entrepreneurs. I’m going to walk you through how this evolution in remote work can result in startup resources that weren’t in your reach a year ago.

The rise of location agnostic business

Let’s state the silver lining like this: Business has become location agnostic and opportunities are everywhere.

Over the last 10 years, we’ve been able to say that business “is becoming more” location agnostic, thanks to advancements in cloud computing, strides in mobile bandwidth, and an avalanche of web and mobile software geared towards digital interactivity across multiple locations.
