If I found a more meaningful way of living, everybody can: my story


My journey to living this meaningful, location-independent life started with an internship in the New York art world in my mid-twenties. I loved the city, and the way it made me feel: alive, powerful in the capital of the world. I saw myself settling down there, finding a partner and raising my kids. But life had a different plan for me: for visa reasons, I wasn’t allowed to work in the United States anymore and I had to find a job elsewhere. Moving to London and starting a new life there was very traumatic for me. The magic I’d found in NYC was lost and I became stressed in a job that required me to sometimes work 14-hour days. I was on the edge of a burnout.
