The world is evolving and modern technologies are evolving right alongside it. At this point, most people are familiar with remote work, especially as the greatest remote work experiment of our time was conducted as a result of COVID-19. Regardless of the accelerated adoption of remote work, it was inevitable either way. The flexibility and freedom provided by remote work are highly sought after privilege that’s now becoming commonplace. If you still find yourself stuck to a daily commute, stale water cooler talk, and office life that’s more distracting than productive, Jordan Carroll might be the answer you’ve been searching for.
He’s a remote job coach who believes by working remotely, one can experience a wealth of opportunities beyond what they can otherwise. His programs help individuals find and get hired for remote jobs. The process offers high performers a system to land these positions, all while supporting them in articulating their personal brand, networking with hiring managers, updating their resumes, and preparing for interviews.
But he also helps with remote life coaching. Because overlooking the foundational parts of life just to get remote work would be detrimental, he guides clients on how to maintain their health, habits, productivity, and relationships based on their remote lifestyle desires. But how did he get here?
First Time Working Remotely
Carroll wasn’t always living the nomadic lifestyle. After leaving California State University, Chico, he worked at IBM for years. While in training, he commuted almost 2 hours to an office right outside of Boston. During that winter, he finally experienced his first taste of remote work because of a snow day. Once he got the taste, he didn’t look back. He ended up negotiating to work from home one day a week after the snow cleared, and then eventually, he was fully remote at IBM in 2015, other than occasional visits to customers. He began to leverage the remote lifestyle to build and develop productivity habits, improve his health, and experiment with various hobbies. None of these would have been possible had he still been commuting up to 15 hours a week.
The Nomadic Lifestyle
He eventually left the corporate world and worked at various start-ups and his own businesses, all in different industries, ranging from a boutique PR firm, an event company, freelance sales for a dating coach, life coaching, and a global travel organization for remote workers. The flexibility of these positions allowed him to pursue long term travel, and live a nomadic lifestyle.
He’s claimed residence in over 15 countries spread across five different continents in two years, now finding him in Mexico. All the while he was creating content, courses, and coaching programs focused on helping high performing individuals learn how to land legitimate remote jobs. His unique experience of not only working for various size companies remotely (from 2 employees to 150 employees, to 400,000 employees) but also in multiple industries, has allowed him to use his perspective to earn thought leadership in the industry. Doing so successfully while also traveling has garnered him credibility with many of his clients who want to do the same.
His focus on growth, honesty, human connection, action, and authenticity has kept him working and performing at his best while living the nomadic life. He often shares his lessons freely in hopes it can help others and make an impact:
“I believe in authentically sharing myself with the world. Sometimes it can be scary. But at the end of the day I know I’ll be attracting the right people toward me and repelling the wrong energy. As long as I’m being myself, I’ve noticed that I can feel fulfilled no matter what I’m doing.”
