Marcus Meurer is an Entrepreneur and Digital Nomad at heart.
He spends his time creating awesome stuff as an entrepreneur, traveling the world, making money, working out at the beach, and practicing martial arts. He is the founder of DNX Camp and the host of the ‘Life Hackz’ podcast.
DNX (@dnxglobal) was founded by Marcus and his long-time girlfriend and fellow digital nomad Feli Hargarten.
It connects & supports digital nomads and online entrepreneurs through events and online platforms. Their vision is that more and more people live their life free and self-determined, connect with like-minded people, share their knowledge, and grow their businesses.
Marcus and Feli became self-employed in 2012 to travel the world. Since then they live and work completely location independent as Digital Nomads. In the beginning of 2014, they organized the first DNX event and continued to grow and internationalize the DNX projects.
