We’re shared our “We’re too busy to implement ourselves, but PLEASE SOMEONE DO THIS” business ideas with you in the past, and they seemed to be quite a hit. So we thought we’d shared a few more.

How to build an online community

Participating in existing groups is one thing, but in the last year we've actually created two groups from scratch – and while it's been a huge challenge, it's also been by far the most rewarding thing we've done since starting our Anywhereist journey. Want to create a group of your own? Our advice: do it! And to help you get started, this post will share some of the most important things we've learnt along the way.
