Me in Vietnam taking a motorcycle pitstop a few years ago.

You can make money living anywhere if you do what I did

I’ve spent the majority of the last 14 years living overseas.

I’ve spent many months in Tokyo, Vietnam, Georgia, Bangkok and now Krakow, Poland.

I’ll often point to a place on a map, pack my bags, and go there alone.

I could never stay in one place for too long.

There are just too many cool places to experience.
I’m not talking about holidays or vacations.

I don’t even like holidays that much because I love my work too much.

I’m talking about really living somewhere, longer term.
My work allows me to do this.

Why?

Because my priority from day one was always this:

• Stay footloose.
• Don’t be tied to any one employer.
• Have several clients.
• Build a loyal tribe of Internet people.
• Do work I can do anywhere with a wi-fi connection.

It wasn’t talent, luck, connections, or skill that allowed me to do this.

It was because I prioritised.

It’s all possible, and I continue to make it work because I prioritise location…
