So many people think being a digital nomad and location independent is the same thing. They use the terms interchangeably.
But the two are very different, and while all digital nomads are location independent, not all location-independents are digital nomads.
For many, the DM lifestyle of sidewalk cafes, looking for free wifi, making a couple of hundred bucks a month, and traveling from country to country is exciting.
But that's not how most location independents live. Most have roots, sometimes with homes in several locations. They are building big nest eggs and successful businesses.
Once you understand the difference, you'll see that location independence is for anyone looking for more freedom and liberty.
