Thought I’d put this out there as I need some tips/advice to make the transition to a more freelance/mobile lifestyle–especially to writers/bloggers who are in the same situation. (I’m based in the US, at present.)
So, you need a home base to set up a business, even a sole proprietorship, but how do you balance that with being mobile and earning money via a business you have set up (only if you have one, of course!)? Short of going completely off the grid, I’m trying to figure out how travelling business people/freelance writers/travel bloggers, etc. manage to balance both worlds, financially, legally, and for tax purposes.
I’m having trouble figuring out how to manage this. And I can’t find any conclusive answers on the Internet, so far. Do you set up a home base to come back to, and use that location to register your business in, file taxes, and keep a permanent address in, while you travel around earning money, writing articles or other business-related activities?
I am really confused about the logistics of the process.
Any practical advice would be welcomed. Send me a message via the contact form via the “About” page if you’d rather correspond more privately by email–otherwise feel free to leave comments to this blog entry.
