About

Bringing the community spirit of African ‘Ubuntu‘ to our platform, we aim to provide an authentically warm & fuzzy digital space where people can support each other in their personal and professional growth. When we sparkle, it ripples out to our family, friends and communities.

Not-For-Profit & Starry-Eyed

Our platform is crowdfunded. Monies raised are used to develop and maintain it, and to pay our Crew for their skills and expertise. Relevant incurred costs will be refunded.

Furthermore, when the membership count is sizeable enough to sustain the community and its (future) technology, excess funds will be donated to support other NPOs supporting micro-entrepreneurs in developing communities. Thinking about the difference we could make … gives us goosebumps!

Our Commitment

The platform is being built / maintained by self-employed professionals (aka the Crew), each having their own clients and other billable work.

When our community is sufficiently funded, alongside our SkillXChange Contracts, we’ll be able to offer the choice of € payments for the 10-hour/week contracts for our Crew.

Our goal is to provide an alternative, steady, bread-and-butter source of income to the freelancers our platform needs, while they’re building their businesses.

Transparency: All contributors receive copies of the annual financial reports. Members have private access to the quarterly reports online.

Our Warm & Fuzzy Starry-Eyed Vision
Our NetNomads Community Logo Explained

Our logo tells many stories …

Net’ is for both network (community) and internet – an online platform. And Nomads are masters of transformation and growth. Unafraid of change, they adapt to changing environments. Happy to take risks and do what is necessary. And Community, because it’s easier when you do it together.

The logo looks like a starry eye to represent our heart-centred vision, and goal, of building a higher-energy, healthier environment where we can grow, help, learn and support each other.

The outer circle represents our beautiful world while the inner circle talks of a community of adventurous souls. People who are choosing an uncommon path and taking responsibility for their lives. The orbits (straight and decorative) represent the balancing dualities like logic and creativity, order and chaos, masculine and feminine energies (regardless of gender), …

During the Wim Hof Winter Expedition in Poland, I was completely blown away by how complete strangers could be so open and caring with each other. The loving, warm and fuzzy energy it created was intoxicating! Buzzing with excitement, I wanted to work in an environment like this…

I strongly believe our community can generate loads of this wonderful energy, which will ripple out into our lives and into the world…

Let’s make a positive difference together!

“A hundred lives in one lifetime.”

I am passionate about learning, exploring & passing the knowledge in the talent management and career development fields. I have been lucky to work in a formal environment of a corporate world and then change it upside down to become a digital nomad. Every time I try a new beginning: a country, a career, a project I feel both excited and overwhelmed with the unknown. It is this thrill of learning, progressing, and explaining what I have learned to the others that keeps me moving.
