CARLENE JACKSON SPEAKS TO THE TIMES ABOUT HOW TO BE A DIGITAL NOMAD IN THE COVID ERA
The Times l August 2020
Carlene’s upbringing, in Dublin, the Scottish Highlands and some of her teen years spent in the Caribbean, has inspired her to embrace remote working. Carlene has moved, with her husband and 3 children, back to Annecy in France where she set up Cloud9 10 years ago.
“Running my business remotely from Annecy has worked. I get up early to work, the kids are remotely home schooled, and then we all stop and spend time together. The key has been empowering my employees to take decisions without me, lots of business owners just don’t feel confident enough to do that, and if you haven’t empowered your team you will become a bottleneck for decisions.”
