I recently wrote a review on how to become location independent. A lot of people emailed wanting to know more about how to afford this kind of lifestyle.
While the location independent lifestyle is not for everyone, there are a lot of people from singles to families with children, living, working and traveling around the world.
One such person is Nora Dunn. I have followed Nora on her blog for some time. If you don’t you should.
Nora has traveled and made a living on the road since 2007. After selling her financial planning practice she hit the road and discovered she loved traveling. In order for her to support her wanderlust lifestyle she did what so many others have done. She found a way to earn money on the road so she could sustain her travels and make a living at the same time.
After getting lots of inquiries about how she manages to make a living on the road Nora teamed up with Chris Guillebeau and Unconventional Guides to offer Working on the Road, an unconventional guide to full-time freedom.
In the guide Nora talks about the various ways she and other people make money while living a location independent lifestyle.
Let’s take a minute here to discuss what a location independent lifestyle means. People hear that term and automatically tune out thinking someone is talking about traveling the world, sitting on a beach and spending a couple of hours a week working. While there may be a couple of people doing that, it is not true for the vast majority of people.
For most people, location independent means finding ways to take your knowledge and earn a living while not being tied down to a 9-5 job in an office.
Nora discusses just that in her new guide. She gives you not only examples of people and how they make a living but also gets your own creative juices working to think about how you can achieve the same type of lifestyle.
Nora will be the first to tell you it isn’t easy and not for everyone, but for those people looking to quit the rat race this guide is a valuable resource.
From how to handle your finances to instructions on how to turn various business ideas into income making realities, the guide is full of real world information that has worked for a lot of people.
Nora has included what is costs to live and work on the road by including budgets from several people who have location independent lifestyles. Also included is a section on what challenges and problems you can expect to encounter and what measures to take to ease those problems.
There is a section dedicated to traveling on the road and how to prepare for a life of location independence and if you think this is the same old information you have seen on other blogs you would be wrong. Nora goes into detail on what you should prepare for and how to plan for a life of independence.From what tools to use to how to collect payments and the costs of doing business on the road, this guide is a must have for anyone thinking of creating a location independent business or just funding their travels.
If you want to learn something, learn from someone who is successful doing it. Nora Dunn has been successfully traveling the world and living a location independent lifestyle since 2007.
