“To many people, being a digital nomad still seems like a dream lifestyle that’s not attainable. This book changes all of that for you by revealing everything you need to know to be fully prepared for a location independent life, from what to pack, where to stay, to your ideal tax setup, how to get the best WiFi and everything in between. It’s quite possibly the most complete guide to quitting your job, going on the road, traveling the world and having the most amazing time. The question is…. are you ready for the adventure of a lifetime?”

“Becoming ‘location independent’ is highly possible (and many, many people have done it), but it’s not always easy. You’ll want to follow the age-old advice from Seneca: before beginning, prepare carefully. That’s how this book will help you. It’s designed to be accessible and practical. You can read it in a day, but it can be your guide for a complete lifestyle change.”
Chris Guillebeau, author of NY Times bestseller ‘The $100 Startup’
