Jeffrey Kontur is a freelance copywriter who is currently wandering the world in search of warm weather, history, culture and a well-balanced quality of life. I caught up with him in Oregon, where he was relaxing on the porch with the dogs he was petsitting.
Jeff had come to my attention with an article he wrote, which posed the question for freelance writers, “how many clients do you need to make a good living?” We discuss this, the 25 countries he’s visited in the past five years, and other aspects of the freelance writer’s life, in this episode.

In these podcasts, we always leave you with some resources to help you with various parts of your Anywhereist journey.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been consolidating all our best resources in one place. As we add new resources, I’ll add them to the page.
It includes things like a link to Alison Johnson’s website that we talked about in Episode 14, my preferred hosting and theme companies for WordPress sites, lots of tools and apps to help you organize your online business, travel information, and more.
Basically, it gives you everything we use to make our Anywhereist lives easier, simpler, more fun, or to save us money. It can do the same for you. Check it out at anywhereist.com/resources.
