Location-independent lifestyle means living your life on your own terms and working from wherever in the world you feel like. Have you always dreamed of heading out to a remote destination and never looking back? Technology has made it possible to work from anywhere in the world, and we can help you make your dream a reality.
I moved abroad in 2006, thinking I would try it for awhile and see if I liked it.  I have since seen the world, gained fantastic experience in working online and abroad, and honestly– I can’t imagine my life any other way.
Depending on if you choose to live somewhere long-term, you may decide to set up a permanent business structure there, or in another country like Hong Kong.  Part of deciding to live abroad indefinately means needing to make these kinds of decisions.  Be sure you check with other expats, get their stories, recommendations, and fully understand the ownership, tax, and legal obligations in each country before you decide.  (Many countries will not let you own majority shares as a foreigner, so be very careful!!)
Every country has specific and (annoyingly) ever-changing rules about how long you can stay, and the frequency of times you can visit.  This also changes depending on what country your passport was issued from.  My recommendation is always to check out a place for a shorter trip to determine if it is somewhere you feel you can work.  Most issues arise from:

  • Length of visa and leniency of repeated visas
  • Currency exchange – you want to get more for your dollar by living cheaper places
  • Internet speed and accessability
  • Finding local friends and other expats to build a community or second “family” with
Most people that are entrepreneurial start their businesses for one reason:  FREEDOM.  The opportunity that doing business abroad and online provides is endless amounts of freedom.  Whether you have a product or service that you want to sell, you can become very successful by moving it online.  Here’s why:

  1. You are reaching a larger audience
  2. You can be more specific about your niche
  3. You can position yourself as an online expert in that Niche

This is what I help people do, so don’t be afraid to reach out and just ask!

One word:

FREEDOM.

FREEDOM. FREEDOM. FREEDOM.  If you are like me, which I’m guessing you are, you are tired of people taking away your biggest resources:  Time, and Money.  They are trampling all over your freedom and choking you down with their ideas and attitudes.  You know there is something more out there and you crave it.  It is FREEDOM.  You want it, you deserve it, now you just need to go out and get it.
