A Beach, A Laptop and an Anti-Glare Screen: The 30-Day Blog Challenge, Day 22Posted by Jessica Oman
Regardless of how you answer those questions, hopefully you’re in business in a place that you love and you have a supportive community of other business owners and customers to help you grow.
Or, your business is completely online and you’re free to run it from wherever you happen to be in the world. That’s one of my goals – if you’re reading this blog, you probably know that!
Today’s 30-Day Blog Challenge question is a fun one:
If you chose to live anywhere in the world, where would that be and why?
Wherever I live has got to be near the ocean. This summer, I visited Sedona, the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Sequoia National Park, Portland and everything in between – but nowhere felt so much like home than the west coast (I haven’t been to the east coast, but I imagine the feeling would be similar). From Seattle down to Los Angeles, the coast took my breath away every time we stopped the car.
And it’s not just beautiful – it’s good for my body, too. I’m in the unfortunate situation of being a former triathlete with a really bad foot problem, so I can’t run in normal shoes or on concrete. What I discovered in Carpinteria was that I can run barefoot on sand without any pain! With that knowledge, and a pair of Vibram FiveFingers, I might have another triathlon left in me after all.
Still my favourite place is the Oregon coast, for its sand dunes and incredible beaches and kind, relaxed people. So that’s where I’d love to live – and work – most of the time. Of course, I’d take a beach in the Caribbean, too!
I’ll also definitely need an anti-glare screen so I can still see my laptop when I’m out in the sun.
We’ll see if I can convince the hubby to join me
What are your favourite parts of the world? Where would you live and do business if you could pick anywhere (and by the way, you can)?
