Turning Passion into Profit with Charlie Grosso

Posted By Trav


When we think of location independence we almost never consider running a brick and mortar business from anywhere in the world.

It is called location independence after all.

Charlie Grosso didn’t let that stop her.

Though Charlie travels the world participating in crazy adventures such as the Mongol Rally and Rickshaw run while earning part of her income as a travel writer and consultant, she also owns a business in New York City.

An art gallery to be exact.

Because honestly, why should the type of lifestyle you want to lead interfere with your passions?

Today Charlie chats with us about freedom, security, adventures, and location independence from the viewpoint of someone who wears a lot of hats. Owning a business isn’t easy, no matter where you live, so why not travel?

This is Part I of a two part interview.
