Gabby Wallace left her Boston hometown looking for adventure and stumbled upon something amazing. She landed in Tokyo, Japan to teach college English, take in another culture, and learn a new language. In the meantime, she was able to pay off $22,000 of debt in one year which, among other things, led to a lifestyle of location independence.
Traveling the world and living out of her suitcase suited her just fine.
Location independence might be a new concept. Gabby wants us to think of the idea of doing remote work a few times a week and expand on that idea.
Instead of being tied to one spot, she explored 20+ countries in one year. While she’s calling Brazil home for the time being, she’s done all this travel because she generates her income purely online.
I love a good travel story. Even better – I love one that involves debt freedom and making money.

“At that time, I didn’t have any concept that this location independent lifestyle existed. I didn’t know that there were people that worked online exclusively, who could just pick up a go and live anywhere…” ~ Gabby Wallace
