My name is Ioannis, born and raised in Greece. The past 3 years prepared me to build a fully remote company and show others how to enjoy the digital nomad life.
I recently took a look back over the last few years of my life, to try understand how I ended up where I am, preparing 6 months of travel, to 6 countries, with up to 30 remote workers.
Starting from my masters studies in France, I got to meet people from about 70 countries. Then, working for international companies I was constantly surrounded by people from all over the world. I noticed that most of them were traveling much more than me. I changed that. I became independent allowing me to work from anywhere, traveling and meeting amazing people in every place where I’d go. I got to visit multiple countries in 3 continents and live in a 4th continent in less than 5 months. I got to work, network, make friends, take part in local events, conduct business and travel.
I learnt how to become a local in just a few days after arriving to a new place. I also picked up some more lessons during my life in the past years.
I then ended up in Portugal, working for an organisation that supports entrepreneurs, something which helped me bring together my previous experiences and make a business out of my life. There is a growing number of remote working professionals, many of which wish to travel, but they can’t due to fear, cost and time needed to invest in order to arrange everything.
That’s how Terminal 3 was born, with my co-founder, we decided to help others live the life we have been living, without many of the negatives. We travel to 6 different countries, spending one month in each, with a group of remote working professionals, preparing their accommodation, co-working space, yoga and language classes, local events, master-mind groups and more.
