Hi there! My name is Leah. Welcome to my little slice of the internet, one of the few places I truly feel at home.
I’ve been enamored with the idea of slowly seeing the world in its entirety (or as much of it as possible, anyway) for as long as I can remember. I first moved abroad in 2011, but it wasn’t until 2013 that I realized my true dream: to be completely free of ties to any one geographical location so that I could continue to travel at whatever pace felt right at the time.
This blog started out in a haphazard manner, as most blogs do, and has slowly evolved into the form you see now. It has both served as a springboard for remote work opportunities and attracted enough of an audience that it occasionally helps pay the bills itself. In short, it has helped me to build the lifestyle I’d been after all this time but didn’t have a name for, location independence.
I now do work that I love from wherever I feel most comfortable, and I’m free to travel the world on my terms.
I’ve always loved storytelling and helping people find the courage and inspiration to see the world with their own two eyes. More recently (and perhaps more importantly) I’ve begun to focus more intently on helping others discover their ideal lifestyle and take the first steps necessary to build it; I hope to provide a bit of the guidance that I never had.
This blog is no longer just about my journey to a fulfilled life; it is a place for others to find encouragement and advice on how to navigate their own.
Location independence may be my ideal way to live, but it’s okay if it’s not yours–all travel enthusiasts are welcome here. I know that full-time travel or nomadic living isn’t everyone’s dream. At The Sweetest Way, we don’t discriminate.
If you want to find creative ways to earn more money so you can travel more on the weekends, this is the place for you.
If you want to learn how to create passive income to spend more time traveling or just being with your loved ones, this is the place for you.
If you want to become a freelancer so that you can be in total control of your own schedule, this is the place for you.
If you want to work remotely so you can live abroad for part of the year, welcome! Because this is the place for you.
If you want to learn the ropes of becoming location independent and work wherever there’s WiFi, strong coffee, and a great view, this blog is definitely the place for you.
I’ll be sharing all the knowledge and lessons I’ve learned in my pursuit of location independence, many of which have far broader applications beyond my particular circumstances. I’ll also offer up as many hard-won life lessons I gather through my travels and be forthcoming with you whenever I’m experiencing pain or conflict.
That last part is especially important, because at the end of the day, after you sweep away all the technobabble, the jargon, and the platitudes, this blog is really just about my journey to a peaceful heart.
Won’t you come with me?
