Destroy Your Cubicle: Make the World Your Office

“The place we choose to live affects every aspect of our being. It can determine the income we earn, the people we meet, the friends we make, the partners we choose, and the options available to our children”.
Given the technological advancements and Internet ubiquity around the world, there's no more reason for anyone to stay attached to a specific location all their life.
More and more people decide to embrace a global way of living: no attachment to a specific city, apartment, job, daily routine, etc. Following the lead of people like Tim Ferris, Chris Guillebeau, or Sean Ogle, how do you make it work or, more importantly, can you?
We put together a panel to give everyone insights into what it would mean to detach from a single location-centric life - from people who have done it, are doing it, and entrepreneurs that are building tools that enable this lifestyle.

Questions Answered

  1. What are the advantages and any potential disadvantages of living a location-free lifestyle?
  2. What is the reality of living a life without no permanent location? How do you make it work and avoid administrative, legal, fiscal, and operational nightmares?
  3. Could you make the world your playground from your cubicle? What are the tools that you can leverage to escape daily from your routine?
  4. Are the latest generation of companies centered on collaborative consumption helping make that life a reality? And how do you arbitrage between trade and pay?
  5. If anyone in the audience wanted to do it tomorrow, where would they start? Can the panel bring tactical and long term strategic answers to help anyone interested in adopting this lifestyle?
