Working remotely doesn’t have to be lonely – whether on your couch, a cafe or the beach!
You just found your Virtual Coworking & Networking Club!
🙋♀️ Raise your hand if any of this sounds familiar:
💁♀️Even before the current crisis, you’ve often felt lonely working remotely
💁♀️You love working online, but you often struggle to stay productive and not get distracted while working from home…or a cafe, or your cute Airbnb…
💁♀️You’re so glad you’re not in a cubicle but you really miss seeing your office friends every day.
💁♀️You’re tired of figuring everything out yourself and crave business besties to bounce ideas around.
💁♀️You are so grateful for the freedom of your lifestyle but struggle with routines, discipline and sticking to your goals. It’s hard when there’s no one to hold you accountable.
I get it, because I’ve been there too.
Even though I loved my business, 🤔I had this niggling feeling that I was doing this whole remote work thing wrong because I felt lonely and unsupported.
I love my ‘normal’ friends but they don’t really ‘get it’ and will never understand the ups and downs of working online or for myself.
I wanted to add structure and consistency to my days – not in a boring or restrictive way – but through being part of a fun and productive community.
And I was so bored by the hustle and grind culture of most online business communities because, for me, working remotely isn’t just about ‘6-figure launches’🙄.
And I think you’re here because you feel the same way.
Introducing (drum rolls 🥁):
The DNG Inner Circle – your Virtual Coworking & Social Club!
We believe that the secret sauce to Remote Life Happiness isn’t some “7-figure formula”, but being part of a virtual sisterhood to support you and cheer you on through the highs and lows of online business and the remote lifestyle!
The DNG Inner Circle supports you through 3 key ingredients to Remote Life Success: Community, Productivity & Accountability!
“If you are looking for a group of women who are friendly and motivated then sign right up!”

What our lovely members have to say:
“Say goodbye to loneliness”
“The DNG Inner Circle is a community that every remote girl NEEDS to be a part of. Say goodbye to the lonely freelancing life! It’s an inspiring group of women committed to helping each other master their personal, business and travel goals. I hope to see you in there soon!”
– DEYA ALIAGA | ONLINE BUSINESS MANAGER | COURSE CREATOR
“Worth so MUCH MORE than what I pay”
“When Jenny put out the notice for the DNG Inner Circle, I immediately wanted in. It offers a place for like-minded ladies to get together. There is a great mix of ladies in different spots in their journey which makes for such a fantastic group. I have already learned so much and am in such a better place since joining the Inner Circle, it is worth so MUCH MORE than what I pay. Jenny has created a great place to be a part of and I highly recommend joining no matter where you are in your remote journey. Come join us!” ”
– BRIE G. | PINTEREST MARKETING STRATEGIST
“It’s my support system”
“Sometimes, the hardest thing about working remotely is the lack of accountability to anyone but myself. The support, coworking sessions, wellness challenges, and expert Q&As feel like a support system and the accountability I need to get things done. ”
– SUSANNAH BRUCK | FREELANCE WRITER
“The best decision I’ve made”
“Joining the DNG Inner Circle was possibly the best decision I’ve made so far this year. You cannot put a price on the value you get from the workshops, the co-working sessions and community.”
– SAMANTHA GARGOUR | STARTUP FOUNDER

– PATRICIA K. | PROJECT & COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER
Who’s behind the DNG Inner Circle?
👋Hey there! My name is Jenny Lachs, I’m your host here!
- In my old life I was a chemist👩🔬but in 2013 I swapped my lab coat for a backpack to travel the world 🌏
- When I first started working remotely in 2015, I had absolutely no clue how to get started. I just knew I couldn’t do it alone and wanted to learn from girls who shared the same dream as me.
- That’s when I started my Facebook Group, Digital Nomad Girls which has grown to 31k+ members in the meantime 🤯
- But I quickly realised that the remote lifestyle looks different for all of us, some of us are full-time nomads, others just like working from home – and we all needed a true online home…
- That’s how the DNG Inner Circle was born in January 2018
- When I’m not busy running the Inner Circle or planning my next trip, you can usually find me eating noodle soup 🍜, practising hula hooping or binging Grace and Frankie.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to be a digital nomad in order to join the DNG Inner Circle?
Not at all! I want to make sure every women who works remotely feels welcome. Yes, some of our members are full-time digital nomads, but most are not.
We have expats, slowmads, work from home mums, girls who love working from cafes, or their couch. There’s not one way to do this lifestyle as long as you work remotely – whether as a freelancer, business owner or remote employee – you’re welcome!
I’m already a digital nomad. Is the DNG Inner Circle right for me?
Yes! I created the DNG Inner Circle to provide a space for us location independent girls. I know that our biggest struggles are loneliness, lack of accountability and staying productive while on the move and that’s exactly why I built this space.
Assuming you want to expand your personal and professional network, virtually cowork and make new friends, then this is absolutely the place for you.
I'm just starting to work & live remotely. Is the DNG Inner Circle right for me?
I’m going to be super honest and say: it depends. If you just found out about the remote life and aren’t sure if this is what you want to do yet, then it’s probably a little too soon to join the Inner Circle (but our beginner course ‘Stop Dreaming, Start Packing’ might be the perfect fit for you)
But if you already know that this is the lifestyle you want to live, and are starting to take steps (even baby steps) towards making it happen, then I think the DNG Inner Circle could be a great fit for you.
It’s a place for new and experienced Remote Girls to connect with others, build professional and personal networks, and learn new skills. I totally believe that the secret sauce to success is a strong network of like-minded people who just get you.
Is the community hosted in a private Facebook Group?
NO! The community is hosted on our own little social platform on Mighty Networks. I have made a very conscious decision to host the Remote Girls Club community in our own, dedicated space away from social media and all its distractions.
I know from working as a social media manager and running a large Facebook Group how distracting it can be to be on social media all day long. I think it’s really important to create a space that is distraction-free, that you can turn to when you’re ready to get down to work or connect with your new friends.
But don’t worry, it’s not a boring old forum! We use Mighty Networks! Imagine our own little social network, where you can chat with your new friends, ask questions on different topics, find people who are near you (I’m super excited about this feature!) and you even get your own app!
Will I get direct access to Jenny in the DNG Inner Circle?
Yes, I am very active in the community and regularly available during most of our live events and Q&A sessions. I also facilitate many of the virtual coworking sessions where you can ask me questions about your projects, travels or anything else you’d like to chat about. Plus, I facilitate the Feedback Sessions where you can get direct access to me and feedback on your project!
The DNG Inner Circle is my favourite place to be online and I hang out here all the time!
I’m a Remote Employee. Is the DNG Inner Circle relevant to me?
Yes, I think it can be, it depends on what you’re looking for. The DNG Inner Circle provides community, productivity and accountability.
While you already have all the skills to carry out your remote job well, you might still feel lonely working from home or struggle to stay productive and hit all your goals. Our goal-setting sessions and virtual coworking sessions will help you stay focused and productive and you get to make new friends!
I’m a freelancer, will there be courses and experts that are relevant to me?
Yes! I have thought a lot about the topics I want to cover and I will make sure that they will be applicable to most industries and types of freelance work or online businesses. Topics like branding, scaling your business, social media marketing, productivity, negotiation, building a website and growing your email list are important for all freelancers and online entrepreneurs.
If you have an idea for a topic you’d like to learn about, please let me know and I will do my best to include it!
Do you add new content regularly or is everything already there?
We create ongoing content but the focus of the DNG Inner Circle isn’t on content (there’s plenty of that around already).
It’s more about building a real network of friends and colleagues and learning from each other. But we also invite experts for Live Q&As, create workbooks, challenges, interviews and more.
All our live calls and Q&As are recorded and added to a growing library of resources. Let me know what you want to learn about and I’ll try my best to find a great expert to cover it! This is our community and I want to shape it into a space we all love.
What happens if I decide to cancel my membership?
Obviously, I’d love for you to stay a member of the DNG Inner Circle forever, but life happens, plans change. I get it.
So while I’d be really sad to see you go, if you’re sure you’d like to cancel you can do so with just a few mouse clicks and any time of the month if you’re a monthly member. Annual members can also cancel anytime and their membership will end at the end of the year (after the 30 day money back guarantee ended).
Still not sure if the DNG Inner Circle is right for you?
The DNG Inner Circle isn’t for everyone and it’s much better to figure out if it’s a good fit BEFORE you join. So here are some helpers:
The DNG Inner Circle is a good fit for you, if:
You want to meet like-minded remote women to make friends, bounce ideas around and support each other
You know that you get out as much as you put in and are excited to get involved, join live events and show up!
You’ve already started on your remote life journey (even if you’re still at the beginning) and want to be part of a community
You are looking for more consistency in your life and work and want to try out new ways to stay productive, create habits and build a routine that works for you
You believe in community over competition and are happy to share your knowledge with our lovely members
You are willing to add value and know that investing in your professional network will be rewarding in the long-term
The DNG Inner Circle is NOT a good fit for you, if:
You’re looking for a quick fix and aren’t dedicated to spending time with other members, to meet, get to know each other and build real friendships.
You’re still working a 9-5 in an office AND don’t have any time to join any of our fun live events 😔
You’re all about ‘hustling’ and ‘crushing it’ – We believe that balance is key for remote girls and we know that community, self-care, friendship and personal growth are more important than 6-figure launches.
You’re looking for a place to JUST sell your services and market your business – Though, of course, we love nothing more than our members getting to know each other and working together!
You’re only interested in the shiny Instagram version of the remote lifestyle – We’re all about honesty and sharing the ups and downs of working remotely.
