Nicole Harlow: Reverse Engineering Location Independence

March 23, 2016 |

After trying out a number of different living arrangements, including Berlin and living in a van in the U.S., and setting everything up so she could live and work anywhere, Nicole and her partner ended up in the tiny island nation of Malta, where she’s loving life and running her location-independent web design business.

Biggest Surprise along the Way
Living in the van I spent wayyyyyyyy too much time and money in Walmart!
