Have you ever fantasized about travelin’ light into the sunset?
Ever wonder if it’s possible to be happy and successful without being tied down to just one job, city, or schedule?
Well we did, and we’re just crazy brave enough to put these dreams to the test!
Beginning in August 2010, my partner Eric, fearless kitty Nyx, and I will board our 26′ motorhome, and embark on a year-long RV adventure to see if it’s really possible to be a location-independent freelancer.
Normally, I’m a coworker, meaning I belong to a local community of freelancers and business owners that meet daily in a shared office space to work and collaborate. Little did I know, the coworking concept has found fertile ground and started to grow all over the country.
Eric and I have always rejected traditional definitions of what it means to be young, happy, and successful in this world, so the possibility of “coworking across America” fit right into our dreams of leaving it all behind for a 24/7 journey of adventure and exploration!
Over the next 12+ months, we’ll be traveling around the United States, camping, hiking, eating yummy local food, writing, and of course, visiting coworking facilities from coast to coast.
As you might expect, I’ll be blogging and tweeting about our independence on the open road and how each coworking space exhibits its own unique interpretation of the Coworking Values: Sustainability, Communication, Openness and Collaboration. It’s my desire to be an inspiration to other young coworkers and to prove that where you are doesn’t have to limit what you can do.
