Oh, hello. We know what you’re asking yourself: Is everyone still in Portugal? Without me? Yes. They are. You might have used up all your vacation time, but luckily, this European dreamland knows you really want to go there and has created a new digital nomad visa launching October 30.

Not to put ideas in your head or anything, but maybe it’s time to follow the trend and see where the winds take you.

😶 Mikayla Nogueira breaks her silence on TikTok, in case you were wondering what she was up to (other than probably working harder than you).

🛑​ Hold up. Stop everything. You can make money on Pinterest?

🥖 TikTok vs. YouTube. The battle of the apps. The battle of the ages. But which one is the breadwinner for creators?
