Marko Csokasi: Digital Contributor and Editor
Marko is a digital nomad. He has been creating and consulting in the technology, finance, and cryptocurrency sectors for over 4 years. His dystopian imagination is his greatest asset in the tech industry.
Who is Marko?
Marko is a jack-of-many-trades in content marketing with a background in affiliate marketing and innovative consulting.
He left school early, worked in the depths of central London's property market, operated an online business as a shareholder and director of operations, and eventually tasted the life of a digital nomad in a variety of corresponding fields.
Marko has a broad range of interests and books became a central part of his life after he left school. He's a keen reader of George Orwell. Aldous Huxley is his favorite essayist.
When he attempts to watch movies, he usually takes an hour to pick one and falls asleep halfway through. Work doesn't stop on the road, so he travels whenever he can. Alongside his content marketing work, he's an undergraduate Psychology student.
A Friendly Interview with Marko
Marko also gave us some additional insight into his life as a freelancer.
What do you wish you knew before starting your own business?
That perfection is an unattainable illusion and the existence of "The Lean Startup" by Eric Reis.
Which resources on Digital do you find the most helpful?
The HTML cheatsheet wins due to my frequency of use as a lazy pseudo-developer.
What advice would you give to would-be freelancers?
Pick one skill and work on it until you can do it well enough to land yourself freelance work that detaches you from whatever you're trying to get away from. Take risks, accept challenging tasks and learn as you earn by diversifying your toolbox on the job.
One piece of advice for small business owners and entrepreneurs?
Find the right people, and delegate the right tasks.
What is your favorite offline hobby?
Right now - carving wood. I also play the guitar, but I have a patchy relationship with my instrument.
How do you maintain a positive work-life balance?
I use the luxury of personal time management to take long lunch breaks, eat slowly, and work out when I want to. I sometimes take power naps and walks in the park in between tasks. Staying close to loved ones and traveling is also key, though I can never comfortably say that I do those enough.
