    I agree that one of the benefits about working online, is being able to work anywhere in the world (as long as you have an internet connection).

    For me personally, my ideal place would be right next to a beach heading the waves crash against the shore — and being able to feel the breeze on my face.

    It sounds like rift now you have a very nice place set up as well where you work.

    Thanks for this post reminding us of just 1 I’d the many benefits we can get if we decide to pursue a job online.

      Michael, thanks for your comment. We have some lovely beaches in Tasmania. Shame the water is so cold. If we drive about 2 hours (not really that far but the road is pretty poor and slow) we get to the furthest place south. And boy the big toe freezes if you dip it in the water.

      I have to choose my beaches as I hate fine sand that coats you. I found these, years ago, in New Zealand on one of our three day treks.

      There is nothing better than going to sleep with the sound of those waves; either as a gentle susurration or crashing.

      See you around.

    Great site. I do understand loving the water and wanting to work close to it.
    I live in south US in the woods. I go to the beach (about 3 hours away about once a month with no internet connection.)
    Your site definitely makes it enticing to quit to my full time job!

      Hey Maureen, yes I love doing my own thing. I have always been lucky with my employed jobs and encouraged to make my own decisions. My last job was very interesting but the boss did his own thing and often walked roughshod over all our thinking. Usually ending up in a mess that we then had to fix.

      I got pretty fed up with this, but fortunately I never had to make a decision about leaving as circumstances terminated this job; so I was free. The circumstances were the Global Financial Crisis and our subsequent collapse of the Construction Industry. The result, no future works coming up. The only people who came out well after this collapse appear to be the ones who caused it.

      I hope you are enticed enough and committed to working hard for yourself. The benefits online are NO OVERHEADS nor wasted travel time. These are the killers in the so called bricks and mortar businesses.

      Thanks for your comment.
