What is location independence

Location independence or location independent means you aren’t tied to a physical location. You have the freedom to live and work whenever you want.

Location flexible is similar to location independence, except you may sometimes have commitments or reasons that require you to be in a particular place.

While many location-independent people are also remote workers, the difference is that location-independent people have total flexibility in their location. Unlike many hybrid and remote jobs that require you to operate from a set location, city, or country, location-independent people can make money from anywhere. As long as they have the tools, such as a phone, laptop, and wifi connection, location-independent people can work from a cafe, coworking space, or an entirely new continent.

Location independence is also different from being a digital nomad since you are not obligated to travel frequently and may choose to have a home base. However, you can still switch countries or locations when you feel like it.

Location independent people are often self-employed freelancers and independent contractors or employees in full-time, part-time remote roles. Location-independent people can also run their own businesses online. It’s still possible to be a location-independent entrepreneur and own a fixed business as long as it continues to operate without your physical presence.

Most location-independent workers leverage mobile technology to allow them to work outside a traditional office.
