Global Natives

The New Frontiers of Work, Travel, and Innovation

by Lauren Razavi

Coming in September 2021, Global Natives is a comprehensive guide to the Work From Anywhere movement, written to help investors, entrepreneurs and business leaders navigate the realities of distributed work and global living.

Lauren Razavi is an award-winning writer and strategist whose clients include Google, Wired, and Coursera; she is also the author of the Counterflows newsletter. In her debut book, Razavi reveals how technology has unlocked new approaches to work and innovation—and how people are already acting on them.

Global Natives charts the rise of digital nomads in the 2010s, and reveals what these early adopters signal for companies and governments preparing for the opportunities and challenges ahead. The book is also relevant to employees and freelancers seeking to explore the possibilities of a remote-first world.

Based on a decade of first-hand reporting and experience, Global Natives addresses questions such as:

  • Will the majority of remote workers soon become digital nomads?
  • How can companies attract talent and stay competitive in a remote-first world?
  • What do digital nomads mean for the future of innovation and entrepreneurship?
  • Which cities are positioned to become “the next Silicon Valley” globally?
  • How can we prevent increased global mobility from creating new forms of colonialism?

Brimming with insights, analysis, and case studies, Global Natives is a story about how we’ll live, work, and play as location independence goes mainstream in the 2020s.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What exactly am I buying?

    Every title sold on is a one-time purchase for full digital access. That means you get lifetime access online for that title on the web, using the Holloway Reader. That also includes future updates from the author or editors. Finally, you get a PDF download for offline use.

  • What is the Holloway Reader?

    The Holloway Reader lets you read and engage with books bought on Holloway. It is the most advanced reading experience for books on the web—you use it right in your browser, on desktop or mobile. In contrast to ebooks and paper books, online content in the Holloway Reader is always up to date, including updates when changes to the content are made, like responses to reader questions, new data, or new developments. It includes expert commentary in the margins and offers bookmarks and highlights, instant definitions of technical terms from a glossary, instant previews of links and footnotes, and a powerful search capability only available on Holloway titles—and we have a lot more on the way.

  • Do you sell print books?

    For a few titles, yes, you can buy paperback editions directly on Amazon. We believe the web is the most flexible interface for reading—but we know it won’t replace the satisfaction or practicality of print for some people. Current paperback titles include Art for Money: Up Your Freelance Game and Get Paid What You’re Worth, Ask Me This Instead, The Holloway Guide to Technical Recruiting and Hiring, and Angel Investing: Start to Finish and more are on the way. (Stay on our mailing list to get notified when new ones are out!)

  • Can I get a Holloway title as a download?

    Yes. A majority of our readers take advantage of the Holloway Reader because of its power and convenience, but you have other options as well. If you buy a title, you get a PDF that you can download and keep to use on any of your own devices—or even print it if that’s your thing. If you care about design, you’ll be pleased that it’s formatted using the same quality of typography you’ll find in books. (Just please don’t share or republish downloads.*)

  • Do I have to be online to read?

    To access the Holloway Reader, you need a connected browser. It works for desktop and mobile (iOS and Android) browsers. If you’ll be offline to read, you can save and use the PDF download on your device or laptop. PDFs also work on Kindle.

  • Are there any discounts?

    Before a book is released, it may be available for pre-order. By pre-ordering a title, you’re supporting us and our authors in their work. Pre-ordering also gets you early access to authors, a discount, and other perks. We also offer student discounts to individuals with a valid .edu email address.* And stay on our mailing list! We send updates about our titles, as well as seasonal discounts and other special deals.
