Even when your job can be done from anywhere, the place you call home still matters—a lot.
By the old rules of work, your dream career determines where you live. If you want to make movies, move to Los Angeles. If you want to work in publishing, you must be in New York. And if you're launching a start-up, you'll only succeed in Silicon Valley.
But with the meteoric rise of remote and freelance work, more people than ever are becoming location independent. Even doctors, teachers, and other people in more traditional occupations have to make tough choices about where they settle, because living in the right place can still make all the difference for your success and happiness.
So if work won't dictate where you live, how will you ever decide?
If You Could Live Anywhere answers that question. Melody Warnick unpacks the big-picture concerns that we often miss when we're writing pros-and-cons lists about potential destinations. Because the secret to being happy isn't moving, it's aligning your location with your values. You'll learn how to craft a personal location strategy that will make the most of your money, your community, and your life, with success stories from people who flexed their location independence to find homes and work they love.
The future of work is clear: it can happen wherever you are. So where do you really want to be?

Such a helpful resource for anyone with a relocation decision looming, but particularly the Anywhereists whose jobs allow them to operate from anywhere! I really enjoyed this and it was quite topical coming before my move as someone newly into Anywhereism! 4.5 stars
I absolutely loved this book! The juxtaposition between real life stories, published studies and helpful resource suggestion was fantastic, as if this book was made for me. I read this cover and cover and can confidently say I know what steps I need to take to find the right place for me to become my home, my community and my workplace, as a remote worker.
I was raving about this book to my friends with each chapter I finished, I can’t wait say enough good things about this book.
