About Ben – The Founder of the Laptop Lifestyle
The last day that I worked for an employer was Friday, 17th October 2008. I remember walking into the office on the morning of our company wide redundancy and being told that we were no longer needed. That's it. Game over. Security... Gone. Monthly salary... Goodbye.
I had a choice that day. I could have easily got another job and continued on the route to my "Bright" future that accountancy offered.
Or I could try something different. I could try to make a full time living from the internet. I chose the latter and am so grateful that I did. Since that day I have never worked for an employer and have instead lived life on my terms and have been able to live and work the hours that I choose and from anywhere in the world that has an internet connection.
I have been lucky enough to experience different cultures, spend more time with my loved ones and wake up when I want to wake up.
