Location Independence For All

Location Independence – The New Normal?

location independenceLocation independence is a wonderful thing. Most people would associate with the privileged few: Those in one of the few professions that don’t require them to be in a specific place at a given time. Yes the Internet has made that possible for more people than ever. We can email work in or take part in online meetings for example. But that’s still a fairly traditional lifestyle. The possibilities go far beyond that now and are available to everyone.

Lovers of location independence (Digital Nomads) also call it the business in a backpack or the laptop lifestyle. It can be done on a shoestring from parts of the world where the cost of living is cheap but it can also be done in style. It’s all about choice and freedom and we can all have our bespoke version of it – if we want to.

My own version, for the next 6 months at least is taking place in a little Scottish village called Innellan. My partner and I have rented a house there to see if we like enough to stay. If not we’ll move on. For the moment though the outstanding views over the firth of Clyde from our garden, the incredible peace and quiet and the wildlife are ticking all our boxes.

Location Freedom – The New Wealth

We have a couple of bars, a post office and small shop within walking distance. The bigger town of Dunoon is 5 minutes away by car and Glasgow is an hour away by boat and car. It’s wonderful.

This is a place where traditional employment is hard to come by. That’s meant that property prices and rents are at an all time low. But you can get a decent Internet connection here and that’s all I need.

What I’m doing and have been for the last 18 months since being made redundant is Internet affiliate marketing. I sell other peoples goods and services online. I can do that from anywhere as my customers are all over the world. They can find me and the things I promote 24/7/365 no matter where I happen to be at the time. I don’t even need to be awake.

The kind of internet business I run doesn’t require me to store products anywhere – they too have location independence. They can be delivered from and to anywhere in the world. They are virtual products. I also sell physical products via Amazon but they hold the stock and take care of delivery for me. I just need to liaise with suppliers and keep things stocked up.

Location Independence for You?

Our desire for location independence stemmed from getting very fed up with city life. The litter, the traffic, the increasing levels of crime around us all took their toll. As I look from the window by my computer now I see sailing boats, the occasional cruise ship or container ship go by. I know we’ve made the right choice.

To put yourself in this position of location independence you need to acquire some new skills. You don’t have to be young (I’m not), you don’t have to be very technical and you don’t need anything like the money or time you’d need to start a traditional business.
