I have a laptop. I got the laptop so that I can take it anywhere with me and work from anywhere. That is a lifestyle that is kind of fun. As long as I can get an Internet connection, I can do what I do which is right create courses and sell things. All I need is a connection and that is easier to get in most places these days.
Today's post is about having a lifestyle that allows one to work from anywhere. I am more or less develop that lifestyle a long time ago and even in the days before laptops. Even now with the laptop because I like where I live I often take it up onto one upper deck and sit out in the sun or take it to a coffee shop or take it to a different room in my house depending on where I feel like sitting.
I also have an iPhone and an iPad. In total the three of them would basically allowed me to go anywhere that I have a connection and continued to work. Continue to earn money. Continue to have fun.
Today's post was supposed to be imagining where I would like to beat to have this kind of lifestyle and it was suggested that Portugal was a nice place. I've never been there and it's on my list of places to get to. But instead of me picking the place to go my ideal in terms of traveling and working is to have someone else pay for it. That's why am working on the aging project. In my mind, I will be the go-to person in terms of speaking and teaching about the aging process from the point of view of someone who is actually there. Then I will be able to be invited to universities, talks, symposia, etc. And the interesting places in the world. Then someone else will pay me to travel put me up in a nice hotel and offer me an honorarium or a speaking fee.
I actually spent a lot of my earlier life doing this kind of thing and I would like to do it again. I worked on government contracts and projects. I taught and was invited to be the keynote speaker for different organizations, and I presented research at professioanl meetings around the country. It was nice to be able to do all of that traveling basically for free. I did reach a point where I got tired of always getting on an airplane but I think I'm ready to do that again.
