Words of the Week – location independent

My favorite buzzword of the moment, location independent means you can live and work anywhere you choose.
I began adopting the location independent philosophy when I was designing the MBA in the USA® business model. I told my success coach, Daniel Olson, “I want to be able to go anywhere in the world and still get paid.” Daniel introduced me to Tim Ferriss’s book "The 4-Hour Workweek", and my career plans really started to take shape.
Only recently did I discover the location independent movement; there is even a website dedicated to the lifestyle. It’s fascinating to watch career and personal trends move through their cycles, and I’m a big fan of the balance this one offers.
