If you–like so many folks–muse about the day you can leave the stress of the rat race behind, grab control of your life, and head off on an adventure abroad…
…then I have good news: That day could be a lot sooner than you think.
What if you had an income that went with you, or if you could, with confidence, create one in a community you love overseas, would that give you the flexibility (and the cushion) you need to just go?
You could have a beach house right on the sand… maybe work a few hours in the mornings and take every afternoon off to relax, swim, snorkel, fish…
Or perhaps you’d like to live up in a highland town where the air is cooler… or in a big, cosmopolitan city where you could enjoy the hustle and bustle…
You might open a café… or a shop… or have a portable business that could pay you to earn from home… so you could make your own hours, be your own boss…
In our very global world today… you have many more income options than you may realize. It’s just that from your vantage point at home… it can be hard to spot them.
After all, the news we hear from around the world is hopelessly one-sided. Reporters don’t go around pointing out amazing opportunities for entrepreneurs. They spot tragedy, instead. It’s no wonder so many folks feel trapped at home.
But you shouldn’t. Because the truth of the matter is: There are lots of ways you can embrace the flexibility of an income that’ll go with you anywhere in the world you want to be.
So if you want to go rent a place in Paris a few weeks or months a year… or if you want to live at the beach in Panama, you can.
And you could get paid… only instead of being lashed to a cubicle and answerable to a boss… you’d keep control of your own income and your schedule.
And I’m not just talking about "portable" careers here.
I’m talking about ways and places you could embrace opportunity on the ground in all kinds of communities…
Jeremy and his family are able to live comfortably on $2,000 a month, which includes $700 in rent for their restored colonial home and $200 in bills like utilities and Internet.
"We make enough to rent a nice home and put the girls in a good private school. It would've been a lot harder in California," says Jeremy. "My wife was working in the States. But the difference in the cost of living here means now, she doesn't have to."
–Jeremy, happily earning in
Nicaragua with a portable career
It could be anything from a big-city bagel shop to a country B&B or a coffee house, an art gallery, a book store…
You know, at home the start-up costs, taxes, and stiff competition can create a prohibitive hurdle for would-be business owners.
Just the cost of health insurance alone can be enough to keep a person enduring a commute and punching a time clock, working for somebody else…
Yet overseas, such obstacles can be fewer.
As one successful expat entrepreneur put it, "In the U.S., you cannot do what I have done… you’d have too much debt to worry about."
But in places where the cost of living is lower and opportunities abound, it’s less expensive to start and maintain a business. And because your costs are so much lower, you don’t have to be lashed to "work" the way so many small business owners are at home.
You can enjoy the freedom to earn, doing something you enjoy… without the frenetic, life-consuming pace a business back home so often demands.
Plus you’re at an advantage overseas in another way as well. You can see gaps in the marketplace. What I mean is: When you’re abroad, you notice things that are "missing," and you’re uniquely qualified to help provide them.
From box-and-ship services to self-storage units to bagel shops… so many expats say: I just fell into my business. I got here, I noticed there wasn’t any fill-in-the-blank, and so I figured I could provide it.
And they do. I’d like to help you pinpoint those market gaps, too…
My name is Jackie Flynn, Publisher of International Living. For more than three decades now, my team has been laser-focused on the ways you can capitalize on opportunity overseas… opportunity for retirement, travel, investment, better living… and incomes abroad, too…
If you like the idea of making money overseas, then I think you’ll like a special resource we’ve created. It points you to all kinds of income opportunities beyond our borders… shows you how to spot potential (and figure out if it makes sense for you)… and it helps you pinpoint an income you can use to fund an international life…
The truth of the matter is: In the right places abroad, you really can enjoy the freedom to create the life you dream about.
With an income that travels, you could earn $10,000... $20,000... $50,000... even $100,000 a year or more… working from home, anywhere in the world...
"Changing gears from corporate worker bees to backpacking vagabonds isnâ€™t plain sailing. But we found a formula: one that's so far taken us to South America, Europe, Asia, and the Antarcticâ€”and we have no plans to stop."
–Warren and Betsy Talbot,
funding their lives abroad
Income-producing jobs like this really do exist, and you don't need years of specialized training before they pay. You don't need a particular qualification to get started, and you don't need long experience to make a go of them either.
With the right know-how and connections overseas… you can instantly spot opportunities on the ground… and grab them, with confidence.
So that little dream business you always romanticized about… maybe it’s a beach bar or a restaurant… a surf shack or a fishing charter… a yoga studio or a coffee shop… you could, finally, make it your own… in the perfect place for you overseas…
Whether you like the idea of a bricks-and-mortar business… or you’d prefer an income you earn from home, the point is: You could fund your life abroad doing something you enjoy… and get paid to live anywhere your heart desires…
We’d like to show you how…
How you could join the ranks of folks just like you who are already doing it…
Like Kat and Bruce Bennett, for instance, who traded in the rain and the stress of high-tech jobs in Seattle for a relaxed pace–and a business–at the beach in sunny La Paz, Mexico.
"It fulfills what we were in search of; we love the culture here," says Kat. "The people of Mexico are warm and friendly, and their heritage rich and diverse."
Life is much more affordable than it was back in the States–they rent their apartment near the beach for just $300 a month, and that includes everything from off-street parking to water to Internet access (electricity is an additional $10 a month).
"We can have a delicious breakfast at a nice restaurant with an ocean view for about $3.50, which includes coffee, fresh-squeezed juice, two eggs, potatoes, beans, and tortillas," Bruce explains.
The good value is clear… but still, it all costs something, however modest. So how do they fund their life?
By surrounding themselves with something they love: books.
Kat and Bruce own Allende Books, whose customers divide evenly among expats, tourists, and Mexicans eager to learn, improve, or practice their English. Their biggest sellers are field and recreation guides on where to go hiking or cruising in Baja, or how to identify the plants and animals.
Kat reports, "It hasn’t been a get-rich-quick scheme, but we make ends meet and enjoy a lifestyle in paradise."
Now the end result may sound good to you… but maybe a bookstore isn’t your cup of tea.
Should Do It
"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didnâ€™t do than by the ones you did do," Mark Twain said. Thereâ€™s something to that. If youâ€™d like to go overseas, only youâ€™re "stuck" because you need an income to support you while youâ€™re abroad, then keep reading. Because weâ€™ve got a resource youâ€™re going to love!
Maybe you dream, instead, about your own B&B or inn… well, Colin Brownlee is making a fine go of exactly that in Puerto Viejo, on Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast.
He didn’t have any experience in the hospitality industry–except for those six months he worked as a bell hop, back when he was 18.
Yet today Colin is in his 50’s, and the beachside hotel he built is lushly landscaped, with greenery and blossoms tumbling down to the sand. There’s a pool, restaurant and bar… all of it right on a gorgeous coast. He rents out 15 rooms in his inn, and boasts a 95% occupancy rate year-round.
He’s living the good life… staying busy, sure… but doing something he always dreamed of doing… and living in paradise while he’s at it.
He says, "I’m just not ready to retire. I’m not a do-nothing person," says Colin. "I’m a big believer that you need a purpose in life. And right now my purpose is to give people fabulous vacations."
And what better setting? "What I can’t get over is sitting on the beach with a cappuccino… I’m really here," says Colin.
And you could be, too. If he can do it, so can you…
Now, maybe a bricks-and-mortar business isn’t your style. If you crave the flexibility and control that a portable income can deliver… you’re not the only one…
With an income that travels, you could rent a place in the south of France for a few weeks if you wanted to… or spend the winter on the beach in Belize… or stay six months a year in Ecuador or Nicaragua…
Or you could head out full-time to a place where you love the culture, enjoy the climate, embrace the adventure… where you could be your own boss and "clock in" from your mountain-view balcony… or from a lounge chair in the sand at the edge of the Caribbean…
That’s the path Jesse Schorberg and his wife Laura took a few years ago, for instance, when they moved their online business from Minnesota to Panama… and they’ve never been happier…
"Having a small hotel gives you a relaxed lifestyle. We had our son this January, and this allowed us both to be stay-at-home parents. Not many jobs would give you that option."
"I probably work 30% less than I did in the States," says Jesse Schoberg. "It’s not that I’m getting less done, I’m just more efficient. Besides, there’s more to life here."
One of the luxuries of living in Panama for Jesse and Laura is having a full-time maid. "She’s the main reason that we’re able to work more efficiently. She is amazing, more like a house manager and she makes our lives much more pleasurable.
"She cleans the entire house daily, does the laundry, washes the sheets three times a week, does all the dishes, cooks fresh breakfasts every morning and as many other meals as we like. She keeps fresh lemonade in the fridge, does all the grocery shopping and runs any errands we require.
"Outsourcing these types of tasks is a huge timesaver and allows us to stay focused on our work. You have to be rich to have a maid in the States, but for $300 to $400 a month in Panama it’s the norm," says Jesse.
Or consider Matt Kepnes, a travel enthusiast who wanted to find a way to pay for a life that could include months at a time away.
He started jotting notes about his wanderings and posting them online. He didn’t know anything about writing or about the web. But he gathered a following–turns out folks wanted to hear what he had to say–and today his travel website gets a whopping 180,000 visits a month. That translates for Matt into ad revenue and additional income from stuff he can sell his readers.
And he’s earning enough to fund a truly travel-filled life. Doesn’t matter where he is on the planet, he’s earning.
"If I, a lazy guy from Boston, can make this travel blogging thing support me… anybody can."
My point in sharing these stories is really just this: You’ve got lots of great options out there for funding your life abroad. Options you’ve probably never thought about. Options that don’t demand years of experience or special expertise.
Whatever you muse about–whether you have a business idea in mind already and need to find a place where it’ll work… or you’re open to all kinds of opportunity and not sure what tack to take–we can help.
"I'm able to live for less than half of what I was paying in the States... and that includes money spent on weekly vacations. Plane tickets back to visit friends and family in the US are not too expensive and the trip is really not that long.
"Life in Costa Rica is a dream come true. I'm healthier and happier, and my cost of living is a fraction of what it was. I'm able to take frequent vacations, and I'm surrounded by other happy people in a tropical paradise. What else can I ask for?"
–Erin Morris, funding the good
life overseas in Costa Rica
You see, we’ve created a special resource called The Savvy Retiree, and inside you’ll find everything you need to know to pinpoint–and embrace–the income opportunities that make the most sense for you.
The truth is… nobody cares as much about your future as you do. If you’re really interested in the freedom of living overseas… in the fun… the flexibility… the ability to control your own time and income… then you’ve got to make that happen.
Nobody else is going to do it for you.
But The Savvy Retiree can help you map your route… explore your options… and show you how you could fund your life overseas… sooner than you probably think is possible.
Every month in The Savvy Retiree you’ll discover secrets like…
And that’s just for starters…
In every issue, you’ll hear from Barbara Winter, an expert in entrepreneurship and author of the best-selling book, Making a Living without a Job.
For more than three decades now, she has been showing people just like you how to find opportunity in chaotic economies and turn their passions into profits. The folks she’s helped are living all over the world today… making money in all kinds of ways… getting paid to do what they love…
"The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing," said Walt Disney. Hear, hear. One of the most powerful–and easiest–things you can do to get from where you are now to actually living overseas is to get a hold of The Savvy Retiree right now. Just take a look. Start "doing." Youâ€™ll find in your hands exactly the tools you need to turn your dream of a paid-for life abroad into your reality. Itâ€™ll be the best investment you make this year.
This one is running an organic farm… another is acting as a home-renovation helper… yet another is whipping up great meals as a personal chef. This one is building websites… that one is an acting coach… this other one is the largest independent distributor of Brazilian bikinis…
There’s no end to the variety of their stories or to the places they call home today.
Point is: Barbara specializes in helping people turn their interests into income so they can create lives that look the way they want them to look.
And she can help you do it, too, in The Savvy Retiree.
I’ll say it again: You’ve got lots of options today, in fact, in our global economy, more than ever before. It’s just a matter of finding and exploring them. And Barbara’s an expert at helping you do just that.
She says, "Where business once meant marketing goods and services to those in close proximity, it now is more about reaching out to those who share values, concerns and ideasâ€”no matter where they are located.
"In the twenty-first century, our clients and customers are more likely to share a consciousness than a zip code."
That can really work to your advantage if you’re keen to live overseas.
Because the niche you create for yourself doesn’t have to depend anymore on where you live. You gain the freedom to design your own life, control your own hours… and you can get paid to do it, from anywhere in the world.
In The Savvy Retiree, you’ll find a resource unlike any other out there.
Not only does it bring you guidance from entrepreneur-expert Barbara Winter, but also timely ideas about ways you can fund your life abroad today… and practical tools for pursuing them…
We share with you stories from folks already doing it–including their hard-won advice and recommendations–designed to save you time, trouble, and money as you consider following in their footsteps.
What’s more–because we have an enormous network of contributors and editors based all around the world–we’re able to tap into their on-the-ground expertise and bring you reports directly from destinations where a budding entrepreneur could thrive.
Say you’re interested in opening a B&B, for instance… you might find a report about the business climate and opportunities from a little beach town in Panama encouraging…
Or say you’ve got your eye on a work-from-anywhere income… and you’re looking for a good place to call your home base. You might find your interest piqued by a report about a village in Ecuador where the cost of living is low and the internet access is reliable.
Or you might be intrigued by a new "entrepreneurs welcome" program in Ireland that could open the back door for you to an Irish passport. Make a qualifying investment of less than $100,000, and you can get a residence visa on a silver platter. With that comes the prospect of a second passport. And that in turn could open up thousands of money-making opportunities to you all across Europe, where you could live and work comfortably and freely…
Point is: Incomes Abroad not only points you toward income-generating opportunities… but it draws your attention to specific communities, too, ripe with potential and waiting for somebody like you to come along.
We’re keeping an eye on good-value nations offering incentives for entrepreneurs, as well. Take one, for instance–a place high on our list of the world’s top retirement havens, actually–where an investment of just $50,000 in a tourism business allows you perks like:
"A goal is a dream with a deadline," said Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich (one of the best-selling books of all time).
I like that idea. After all, you can dream about living overseas. But if you never figure out how to fund your life abroad, well, all youâ€™ll ever have is the dream...
Youâ€™ve got to take action, set a goal. Youâ€™ve got to DO something to make it real...
And one of the easiest, most cost-effective, smartest things you can do is get ahold of The Savvy Retiree.
Just take a look. Itâ€™s guaranteed. If you decide that getting paid overseas isnâ€™t for you after all, no problem. Weâ€™ll give you a full refund on all un-mailed issues. No questions, no fuss...
Make today the day you DO something about this dream of yours. Take that critical first step today toward funding your life overseas by getting the most powerful tool out there to help you do it: The Savvy Retiree.
Big tourist operators and hotels know about this rule… and have been enthusiastically taking advantage of it. But you don’t have to be some huge corporation to reap the benefits.
Open a small inn, and you could qualify easily. You can see how–over two decades–the tax incentives could translate to tens of thousands, maybe even hundreds of thousands, of dollars in your pocket.
In Incomes Abroad, this is exactly the sort of opportunity we bring to your attention… the sort of opportunity that you won’t find out about anywhere else.
Not only that, but our team is always trolling for businesses for sale that might interest you.
Like a great little hostel listed in Chile’s tourist-rich Lakes District… or an established inn on the market on the Caribbean island of Dominica.
In The Savvy Retiree, we delve below the surface to show you not only what the possibilities are… but the nuts-and-bolts you need to know to take advantage of them.
It means a story about running a beach bar wouldn’t just tell you what it’s like… but also talk about the questions you’ll need to answer before you set out to create your own place… and the pitfalls you’ll want to avoid…
In other words: The good stuff… and the challenges, too.
If you’re ready to gain the flexibility and control an income overseas could give you, then I think you’ll really like what you see in The Savvy Retiree.
In fact, I feel confident you’ll be impressed… so I’d like to invite you to take a look.
When you do, not only will I make sure you receive an issue in your email inbox every month, but I’ll rush you a little something extra as well…
