Q (Natalie):What is your definition of location independence?
A: Well, my definition of location independence would be of course the obvious response, meaning that you have the ability to work from anywhere in the world without having to limit yourself to the boundaries of an office, house etc., even from a beach or in the middle of an ocean in a boat!
I would personally add to this definition the inner/psychological side of it:
What I wanna say is that location independence is from my point of view not only the ability to work from anywhere you like, but in addition to that the fact that you don't have any special links or boundaries with a specific location, meaning that you are free both mentally and physically to relocate. Some people don't want to move from their home office or their houses because they don't want to leave their comforts. Other (including me) can travel anywhere with just a few belongings with them.
As a lawyer I would certainly add the legal aspect of the question, meaning choosing the right country for your business with a flexible legal and tax system that doesn't limit your ability to move around to the world as a digital nomad by inposing for example enormous taxes or legal boundaries to a legal entity.
That's about it!
