If you work online, then you have the freedom to be physically located anywhere in the world and to still earn an income.
This is an amazing freedom that so few people are afforded, and it’s one of the top reasons that many of us are attracted to the notion of working online in the first place.
It’s a minor tragedy, then, that so many people who manage to make their income online, will not take full advantage of this.
So many people who work online equate this to working ‘from home’ in a very literal sense. That means working out of a home office or working in bed.
Sure, this has its appeal too, but it’s not exactly taking full advantage of this untethered way of working.
If you work online, you can go anywhere. Where should you go?
Of course, the natural conclusion is that working online should mean working abroad. That way, you can see more of the world, experience other cultures and truly live a kind of life that wouldn’t be possible any other way.
For the Non-Digital Nomads
You don’t have to give up all your creature comforts or your relationships in order to enjoy traveling as you work. Working online means you can just travel more.
And even in your local area, there are no doubt more exciting and exotic places you can work. Anywhere with an internet connection where you won’t get kicked out can make a great place to get work done.
Working in a coffee shop is the most sensible and popular option.
Plus you can enjoy people listening and watching to the background chatter, all while avoiding the many distractions and temptations that come from working at home.
