"Everything will be good in the end. And if it's not good, It's not the end."
Matthias is the Founder of WXplr - The Workation Whatsapp Chatbot Powered By Advanced AI Technology & Real Time Information. He has taken the challenge to answer our 20 Truth Questions, For us to get some insight, And learn the Truth about the people behind the venture.
My TRUTH Story:
1. INTRODUCE YOURSELF IN THE THIRD PERSON TO A CROWD OF 10,000+ PEOPLE? Matthias Plunser was born as the oldest of 4 boys in a small village in Tirol/Austria. As a boy he had already many ambitious goals and the only thing that could stop him was either achieving it or going after the next bigger one. Since then Matthias published ebooks about paleo nutrition, went into the direct marketing industry and gathered experience in many different sales and marketing areas. In 2017 he founded his own marketing agency and helped many small and medium sized businesses grow their social media profiles and reach their customers through content marketing.
In 2018 Matthias left his home country Austria and became a Digital Nomad. He traveled to Thailand, Australia, New Zealand and Singapur, before he decided to stay for 2 years in Cyprus. In the middle of the covid19 pandemic Matthias, his wife Yara and their first son decided to find another place for them to live, so they moved to the little island of Sark in the British Channel. To give them a perfect infrastructure to work remotely he started a coworking space on Sark. After speaking with many people about workations he noticed that getting all the necessary information about legal requirements, visas, accommodation and coworking spaces is really time consuming and frustrating. A problem he felt needed to be solved! This is how WXplr - Workation Explorer was founded.
