Jobs do not equal places any more. A modern urban professional can land anywhere in the world and be immediately operational. She can continue her work where she left off a few time zones away, stay in touch with her friends and ensure a roof over her head for the same evening and wheels to meet her in front of the airport.
Yet, your costs are strongly tied to your physical location: housing, transportation, child care, education, health care, taxes, bureaucracy. More costs emerge from being too far from the people and places you want to spend time with.
Life in a mobile society is liberating but this abundance of choices can also be daunting. This is why we are building Teleport, a company that helps modern digital nomads figure it all out.
Free people move.
