The idea of becoming location independent sounds great to most people. Who wouldn't want to be able to live and work anywhere you choose? The hardest part about reaching your goal of location independence isn't in having enough desire to do it. The hardest part is earning an income that doesn't require you to show up to work every day in one place.

Do you daydream about quitting your job and traveling around the world? What about taking it a step further and building a location independent career, so you can live and work wherever you want to? That's exactly what the people on this list have done. They're digital nomads, and they've all chosen to write about their experiences.

What are you planning to do when you retire? Do you hope to travel, spend time with friends and family, take up new hobbies or volunteer to support a cause? How long will it take you to retire? For average people, it takes about 45 years, if you live that long. Maybe you're hoping to retire sooner, in 30, or 20 or even 10 years by working hard.
