Meet the Nudge Community

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark Twain

We have been posting, blogging, vlogging… following marketing 101: keep posting to ‘get noticed’ and, dare I say it, the over used words of ‘building the brand.’ It’s all good, but I also think people get tired of the same face… Especially a long haired hippy one like mine! :0) So we thought we’d chat about the community.

This month meet the Dillon’s. They are our hero’s, they are doing what some of us dream about but so often find reasons to delay! During lock down John has been converting a transit van into a home office / camper van. John is a Civil and Structural Engineering Consultant who I first met at Wood, he is a chartered engineer and a contractor with 20 years’ experience under his belt. He’s married to Jess, who is Commercial Lead in the industry and together they have a daughter Maria.

Maria is 2 years-old so as all parents will know as much as its awesome spending more time with the fam, balancing fam time and working from home has presented challenges. Enter the mobile office… While the conversion isn’t fully completely ready for over-nighters it does offer the opportunity to take the office anywhere they like. John and Jess have a few favourite spots, John’s would be in front of iconic engineering masterpieces for inspiration! Jess’s is more serene that offers a fresh perspective… As longs there is WiFi they are loving having the opportunity to push the boundaries of working from ‘home’!

John and Jess also love a surf, so longer term the aim is to spend more time travelling to different places, pitch the van up at a gnarly spot, surf a bit, work a bit, home school that’s the dream. We say “why the hell not!” We are, after all, the digital generation. Nudge will be there to help. Go the Dillon’s, we salute you!

And if working from where you want sounds like it might be for you, why not

Good luck and stay safe,
Team Nudge
