When your company changes its policy and allows you to telecommute, and when meetings are conducted online instead of in-person, you might be freed to live in another country for a few months, or even a year or two. The financial advantage of this can be enormous. You can take advantage of the digital nomad dream combination of a first-world income and third-world costs. The extreme telecommuting sweet spot is when you earn a big-city salary, but live in, say, Bolivia, where a mansion with servants costs $500 per month.
I can’t quite see myself tapped in to the culture and coming up with concepts in a Bolivian castle, but I can imagine working from a straw bale home in the mountains or a yurt at the beach.
What’s the nuttiest place you’ve ever written copy, solved a design problem or talked a client off the edge?
