It feels very similar to a retired lifestyle, but you know, of course, I still have to work!
Here are the many positives of having a location independent job.
I am able to work from home if I want to.
I love being able to work from home. I know that some don’t and would rather work in an office, but I don’t think I will ever understand that 🙂
Working from home is just so much more comfortable, and I also don’t have to spend time commuting to work and spending the extra money in car costs to do so.
I can also work while I am traveling.
This is both a positive and a negative, but I’m fine with it regardless. Being able to work while traveling is a negative because I always feel like I need to work!
We have been thinking about going on a cruise, but the thought of me not being able to work because of expensive cruise ship internet is something that I have been hesitant about.
If I go on a trip, all I need to make sure I have is internet. And free wi-fi is always best. I work on almost all of my trips, which is nice because I can bring in money while also enjoying a new city.
I can pick up and go.
This one is related to the two above, but I wanted to further explain this one. Since I can work from wherever, this also means that I am not tied down to living in one place. We haven’t decided yet, but we have been thinking about moving to a new place (such as near a beach or lake) and since I can work from wherever this is possible.
I like having the option of being able to live in different areas of the country because I’m not tied down because of a job.
I only need my laptop.
In order for me to work, all I need is my laptop. Well, and internet. It doesn’t cost very much for me to run my business, and I can just pick everything up and move it easily.
Do you have a location independent job? Do you wish you did?
