What does having a location independent business truly mean?
Having a location independent business means so many different things.
Some people just want to work from home and be able to travel 3 times a year instead of one, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are living a nomadic life.

How can we use our existing business to travel for free?
A sponsorship is a partnership with a brand or business where you are trading stuff.
You get in touch with a hotel, or an experience place, and you make a deal around your assets.
If you have a strong social following, you can offer several social posts, videos, etc.
Start with smaller businesses (or even local).
Anyone can do it! You do not need a big following. You just need to go for it and be a little gutsy!
What are the first steps to creating a truly location independent business?
You want your business to be very overhead low!
In the beginning, you want a business model that doesn’t cost you money! You can do a lot of things for free when you are just starting out, and then invest as you grow.
Then create a product that is very high profit and doesn’t require any fancy stuff. Coaching and consulting is one of the easiest ways to do that.
A carry on only style of luggage business model.
You only want things that are multifunctional and are always valuable.
