After burning out in business school at 21 years old, I knew the rat race would be too stressful for me. So, I moved to Costa Rica to find better work-life balance. 

I soon found out that I didn’t have to sacrifice income for freedom. In fact, I made more money living abroad than I would working in a regular 9-5 job in the United States. 

15 years later, I'm still working online and traveling full-time as a digital nomad while helping thousands of other people do the same. So, I decided to write this book to share everything I know and provide a step-by-step guide to achieving location independence.
