What's the number one reason anyone becomes self-employed? Freedom. Independence. Is it possible for everyone to work and live anywhere they choose in the world? Maybe not, but it may be more possible for you than you think. Today I speak with Stacy Ennis about the importance of location independence as she shares her personal journey of moving around the globe, starting in Idaho and ending in Portugal. Stacy emphasizes the importance of aligning your business decisions with your desired lifestyle and making incremental changes to gain more independence and flexibility. This conversation is essential for those seeking belonging, community, and the freedom to choose their own path.
