            Thanks for this great thread, Hrishikesh

            As a digital nomad, 2020 was quite frustrating since I was bound to a particular location. However, the rise of remote work and the announcements of new remote work programs excites me even more.

            This has been a great year for me personally. I have been able to bag some big-name clients in the last few months. Look forward to seeing what the future holds for 2021.

            1. 1

              Amazing Krasniqi, more power to you.

            2. 3

              My biggest win this year was launching fexspace.com, collaboration platform for organizations and teams.

              My team and I worked so hard through the lockdown to make that happen and we were successful.

              Now we are working hard to make Fexspace a collaboration platform for everyone. Anticipate Fexspace in 2021.

              Thank you guys.

              1. 1

                That's great. You're surely going to have a lot of requests coming in through 2021.

              2. 3

                One of my biggest wins this year is wanting to work a remote position that I really enjoyed. I've been working full time in a contract position as a Contact Tracer helping to make a difference in this Pandemic that we've been dealing with this year for the last 9 months.ย 
                ย I love working remotely, and will be looking for a permanent, new remote position in 2021.ย
