Building a location independent lifestyle has been a dream of mine for quite some time. There’s something to be said for working on your own terms, being your own boss and having control over (to an extent) your income. I’ve dabbled in the past here and there, but I think now I really have the means and the motivation to make that life a reality.
I pretty much now am living a location independent lifestyle, but in terms of living in Australia and supporting myself fully and comfortably with it is still a ways off.
If I can make it so I’m producing a fairly stable and profitable income for Sydney life (it’s expensive here!), I’m pretty sure I can make it in most other places in the world.
Plus, I will prove to Pat that producing more than an extra income is possible, which will also probably help to convince him that taking time out to travel is not so risky.
This is my ultimate goal, but making it happen is another story.
- WhyGo Australia has really good potential, but as of now, I’m still building it up.
- The newly launched Her Packing List is sure to rock, but that will take time. The goal of that site is to make money.
- The Female Travel Underground newsletter is still growing, and that should work to grow Her Packing List.
- I plan on doing a photo and a post for every day this year (this is number 11) on Brooke vs. the World, and I can already see the growth from that, as well as commenters coming out of the woodwork (I heart you all). Growth here will ultimately lead to growth in those other areas as well and more earnings from advertising.
Besides that, I do blog articles here and there for extra change. It’s not much at the moment, but I do like to think that I’m setting the building blocks for future growth perhaps. However, I’m thinking something needs to be added or changed in this whole equation. I haven’t figured it out yet, but I’m hoping it will come to me (feel free to send me ideas!).
Like I said before, I’m so in love with 2011 and the possibilities that await. Let’s hope I can make it a good one!
