Is a simplified lifestyle with freedom to travel and enjoy your work even possible? It is! We achieved location independence, and so can you!
Update, April, 2016: Hey, thanks for stopping by! Taking the plunge into “complete and deliberate homelessness,” we embarked on a 2 year around the world trip in September, 2014. Over the past three years, we’ve set foot in Ireland, France, Liechtenstein, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Russia, Fiji, Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, Spain – including Mallorca and the Canary Islands, Belgium, Great Britain, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Bulgaria, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and China. So grateful for everything!
So . . . we didn’t always live and travel like this. Instead, we spent quite a few years wishing, worrying and wondering about what we were going to do. How about you?
Are you stuck in a job you don’t enjoy? Do you daydream about waking up one day feeling happier and more fulfilled?
While everyone’s idea of a perfect life is as unique as they are, most people dream of more freedom. We’ve been there!
- freedom to travel
- freedom from schedule
- freedom to work with or for people you like
- freedom to make a meaningful contribution with your life
- freedom from money worries
Thinking you might not be able to retire the same way your parents did? Boy, do we hear that! It was a tough thing to swallow when we realized we were going to have to continue working long past traditional retirement age.
Ever thought about what it might be like to add income or even replace traditional employment with a business that you actually like? Yes! This seemed like it might make sense.
What about location independence? Have you dreamed of a lifestyle with more opportunities for relocation or even full time travel? Oh, it’s possible! We’re proof! And we can help you do it, too.
Where to Begin?
We started to analyze our current situation and why we felt unfulfilled. Basically, it all came down to control, and we didn’t have it.
Here’s what we did have: a typical suburban lifestyle, commuting in separate cars in opposite directions Monday through Friday (and sometimes on weekends, depending on workload). Even with vacations, we barely had time to relax before it was time to go back to the grind. A lot of our free time was devoted to work around the house and yard. We were tired of being tired of it all. There had to be something different out there. Sound familiar?
Then it dawned on us. We needed:
- ongoing and diversified income so that all our eggs weren’t in one basket
- freedom to work from home or anywhere so that we could travel
- to integrate work with life for more enjoyment, and
- the ability to share with others who might be in a similar boat
We decided to achieve all those things!
When we started in 2008, we had absolutely no idea how all this was going to happen, much less consider complete location independence. But we knew things couldn’t go on the way they were.
This photo was taken just before we headed off on our first extended trip after achieving our goal of location independence in 2011.
All the way since, we’ve managed a variety of business activities so that we can
- work from anywhere there’s a phone and Internet connection
- travel any time we want and
- stay wherever we are for as long as we wish.
This is what TRUE FREEDOM means!
