City or Village?

Community Guru

If my online business keeps going on well in the next period, I'm seriously thinking about leaving the city (where I do some offline business too) and operate my online business from the village.


Not only the nature is great there, but everything is much cheaper & you can barely hear any noise which means you can be more productive and focus better at work - beside of course those lovely birds singing everyday in the morning.


Where do you run your business from? And what's the advantage/disadvantage of running it from where you are. Please share your opinions and help me make the right decision.


Best regards,


P.S. Elance/oDesk kids: leave my post clean. I don't wanna have all my posts closed by Garnor/Valeria only because you haven't spent your childhood as you should.

A warning: take a good look around the village you're thinking of moving to! See lots of carefully tended lawns and hedges? Chances are the neighbours will be mowing the lawn and trimming the hedges in an endless cacophony of trimmer noise day in, day out. How about the heating? Probably not an issue in your part of the world, but where I live the air sometimes loses all of its country sweetness when people start burning their wet wood and rubbish in their fireplaces. The list goes on... I was born and bred in the city, but I'm a country girl at heart. So I put up with it.
