Dan Taylor has focused on finding flexible employment and gotten lucky with the travel piece. Dan worked without a home office for over eight years with Deloitte before establishing Prague as his base. Now as CEO and Founder of AppsEvents & EventFrame, he has teams on almost every continent. He also often spent 6 months of the year traveling, so he has great insights in maintaining balance as a global entrepreneur.
Dan became an entrepreneur after a short stint with Deloitte. Now running his third and fourth ventures, Dan is an expert at managing remote teams and thinks very intentionally about work/life balance (but admits he could use some work on it, can’t we all?). Born and raised in Britain but not catching the travel bug until he was 18, Dan has spent more than 12 years combined traveling and is entering a new chapter of travel with his wife and 9 month old child.
