Karel’s letters written during travelling

Letters written when working while travelling, part 1.

Above advantages of working as a freelancer. Karel Kosman photo After seeing all the domains you guys bought, seemed like you were throwing your money around too much. But easy to do when setting up a business. I’ve learned from experience the art of starting slow, lean and mean, and work up slowly from a solid, bottom base. Everything else is hype and too much excitement.

Yah, everyone jumps to the same conclusion, but my arguments are always the same:

- for 15 years that I lived in Prague almost all my work was through the telephone or internet, so I see no reason why that should change. I’ve always worked from home and never met my customers, except for a few isolated cases when I totally ran out of money

- now I don’t have to pay 14,000Kc/month rent, plus electricity, gas and heating etc. It’s inevitable that things should turn around for me, seeing I can now survive on 10 bucks a day

- if I WAS to consider moving back to the cold and out of my truck, first I’d have to get there, then put down first and last month’s rent, then have some survival money to last me a while until I found some work. Then I’d work like everyone else, in some stupid office, paying high rent, and barely putting anything into the bank at the end of the day. So I’d probably owe MORE money, and take me longer to pay everyone off. Essentially out of the question. Not to mention that I would be absolutely miserable.

- and if I wanted to work in some geezard office, I could probably find something locally in the sun, wherever I am, considering it’s all EU and I’m EU etc.

But this construction gig in Greece could be good. Would still live my bohemian lifestyle, and wouldnt have to pay for food anymore, so my daily costs would become essentially zero. I’d have a good backup income, and can stop working if any translation or other work comes in. So win win I’d say. Now just to get there.

Have a good one bud.
