White-collar nomads

ellingsen_031.jpg

As both a travel addict and a former shoestring-style backpacker who is currently in the process of launching a multi-media company, I’ve been struggling for years with a bit of a tricky existential dilemma: How can I possibly hang on to my beloved independent lifestyle — I tend to relocate from city to city whenever the notion strikes, and I love the convenience of travelling abroad whenever I get the urge — while also launching and operating the business of my dreams?

Tough one, right? Well, maybe not as tough as it might have been ten years ago. Author Timothy Ferriss makes the case for “escaping 9-5, living anywhere, and joining the new rich’ in his rather bold new book, The 4-Hour Work-Week, which I’ve been enjoying immensely over the past few weeks. But if you’d like to read a more brief primer about the subculture of brave business people that some reporters are now referring to as “white-collar nomads”, take a look at this recently-published Business 2.0 article, “Extreme telecommuting“. Oh – and get your passport ready.
