The phrase “location independent” refers to the ability to be able to live and work from anywhere you choose. That could be from the comfort of your own home, a coffee shop down the road or a beach bar halfway around the world.
The ability to be location independent is usually underpinned by a business run via the internet. There is a growing community of location independent people – enabled & supported by the work we do here at the Location Independent network.
The term “location independent” was first coined by Lea Woodward to describe the lifestyle she & her husband, Jonathan, inadvertently created for themselves when they left the UK in early 2007, to search for their new “home” somewhere other than the UK.
Supported by a business they could run on the internet, they first headed to Panama. Realising that they could go wherever the mood took them – and that they weren’t yet ready to settle down in one place, they have so far lived & run their business from Buenos Aires, Toronto, Grenada, South Africa, Dubai, HK and Thailand.
Having realised the joys, challenges and benefits of this lifestyle, they started a blog – www.LocationIndependent.com – to chronicle their experiences and share them with anyone else who wants to create a location independent lifestyle.
