"John's captivating storytelling combined with his desire to share the benefits of leveraging the talent-packed, location-independent workforce make him the ideal spokesperson for the Remote Revolution."

Stephen Vasconcellos-Sharpe, Convener of Reboot the Future, Publisher of SALT

"Having run businesses with a fully global footprint for the best part of two decades, I had the privilege of observing the Remote Revolution unfold before it became a 'thing.' We have the great privilege of living in a truly flat world today, with the internet connecting us to incredible opportunities - and with great cost saving - at the tip of our fingers. Talent is now truly global. We can safely scout services from the comfort of our armchair. We can all be digital nomads! This book is a great read for anyone wanting to learn more about this powerful trend."

Laura Cotton, Public Relations and Image Development Maven, Pearl Strategies

As an executive utilizing a mobile workforce for more than a decade, I know the future of work is real and know that those who adapt recruitment and retention practices accordingly will outpace those who don't."
