No matter how affordable the destinations we talk about are, the simple fact is: You can't live anywhere for free...

But what if you had an income that went with you? An income that could give you the freedom you need to just pick up and go?

You could spend half the year in your own cottage on the beach… work in the mornings and snorkel and relax in the afternoons.

Maybe spend the other half of the year up in the mountains where it's cool... and get paid while you're at it...

With this kind of flexibility, it doesn't matter where you're based. That means you can travel whenever you feel like it. You could rent a place in Paris or Buenos Aires for a month or two of vacation, work from home a few days a week and spend the rest of your time enjoying the city...

You could earn an income from back home while you go live someplace where the cost of living is much more affordable. That way you put dollars in your pocket, but you spend in a place where those dollars really stretch.

Cotacachi-Ecuador

American Pie Funds Life in Perfect Weather in Ecuador

Before coming to Ecuador, Robin Stock and her husband, Joe, lived in Wyoming, where she worked at a local diner as a waitress and pie-maker.

They imagined living somewhere exotic where their money would go further and winters would be either milder…or non-existent. So three years ago they moved to Cotacachi, Ecuador, on Thanksgiving Day to begin their expat adventure.

Cuenca

Making Money With Music in Cuenca, Ecuador

Brian Gary quit the U.S. after the downturn and is delighted with the new life he has created in Ecuador.

“I had developed a very successful real estate business,” Brian says. “All was going great until life went sideways with the economic meltdown in 2008, and we decided it was time for a change.”
“I’ve been fortunate to travel all over the world for a large part of my adult life, and I thought it was important for my family (wife Chelsea and three kids) to experience other cultures,” Brian says. “But since we’re not retired we needed to find a place where we could earn an income.”

Cotacachi

Great Lifestyle on a Three-Day Week in Ecuador

Todd Johnston is an adventurous guy. In his 53 years he’s traveled to Africa… climbed mountains in Peru and Ecuador…and gone scuba diving in exotic locales.

This sense of adventure, along with a desire to live life to the fullest, motivated him to buy a condo in Cotacachi, Ecuador in January of 2012 and eventually move there full-time in February 2014.

Coffee-Shop Dreams on a Tropical Island

I am happy. I don’t worry about car insurance, driving for hours, or traffic. I don’t have to put on a pair of heels and a business suit. Flip-flops and a great pair of shorts or sundress are my normal attire now,” says Marlene Houghton, who owns Marbucks, her dream coffee shop on the island of Ambergris Caye, Belize.

Bringing the Packers to Sandy Bay, Roatán

You can take Rob Baker and Lisa Blythe out of Wisconsin, but you can’t take away their obsession with the Green Bay Packers. The dynamic duo left their snow-covered home for a beachfront business in paradise, and they’ve brought their favorite pieces of home with them. “Our restaurant was the first official Packer Bar in the whole country!” Lisa proudly exclaims. “Football season is so much more fun on the beach.”

Cuenca

Dine Outdoors in January in Beautiful Cuenca, Ecuador

“Can you meet me at Puro Cafe at noon?” asks my husband, Mark. The times and locations of our rendezvous may change, but my response is always the same—yes! Who can say no to meeting for coffee at one of the quaint sidewalk cafes in picturesque Cuenca, Ecuador with its cobblestone streets, majestic churches, and irresistible Old World charm?

Salinas

Low Costs and the Perfect Climate in Ecuador

My wife Rita and I had a very good life in the United States. We lived in a beautiful riverfront condo a few hours from Washington, D.C. We had a boat, good friends, and access to great seafood and fresh produce in season.

Online Income

Turn Your Passions into Profit and Earn an Easy $700 a Month

Creating an on-going income from e-books is possible…no matter your age, background, or skills. To prove it, here are some of the actual results from people who have done it. The story of Margie Garrison is a great place to start. A 74-year-old Florida grandmother, Margie suffered with arthritis for 43 years. After being told she’d soon need a wheelchair, she found a natural cure for living free of arthritis pain.

The Secret That Took Me From The Poverty Line To Profits

The Secret That Took Me From the Poverty Line to Profits

Fifteen years ago, after a series of bad decisions I was broke. The kind of broke where I’d lost my job and my family and I were being evicted from our home and having our last automobile repossessed. I didn’t have a cent to my name and that year my income placed me below the U.S. poverty level.

The Three Easy Ways To Make Money From E-Books

The Three Easy Ways to Make Money From e-Books

In the South, where I’m from, we use the expression “more than one way to skin the cat.” It refers to catfish, which are skinned before they’re eaten. I bring it up because I think it’s a great analogy for all the different ways that you can “create” an income-producing book.

How Teaching English Opens Doors Overseas

How Teaching English Opens Doors Overseas

I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to travel severals time a year to places like Ecuador, Panama, Costa Rica, and Mexico. You might wonder how I became so lucky? Well, seven years ago, I came to Mexico to teach English as a second language. This allowed me to fulfill my dream of living abroad and immerse myself in another culture.

Puerto-Vallerta

You Can Afford to Travel…With a Portable, Copywriting Income

There’s nothing quite like waking up in your own little paradise—and realizing it’s not a dream. That’s how my husband, Casey, and I felt in our first home abroad, Puerto Vallarta. It was just a small place, perched on the mountainside, high above the bustling palm-lined malecón. Just big enough for the two of us, our crazy dogs, and a flop-eared Siamese cat named Tomás Cruz.

granada

Enjoying the Best of Europe With an Online Income

As an American expat, I like having a home in Berlin…but I also like being able to leave it when the desire strikes. Cold weather is not my friend. I’d prefer to spend my winters someplace warm, so I escape the chill Germany experiences from November through March. Since my work lets me be almost anywhere I want—as long as there’s a good internet connection—this is when I head south.

Barcelona

Teach English in Barcelona With Free Time for Fun

“Would you like to…take my fiancé?” My student looked at me for approval and despite my best efforts, a giggle escaped. I apologized and explained what “would you like to take my fiancé” means…versus, “would you like to meet my fiancé.” He laughed at his mistake.

Manzanillo,-Costa-Rica

Pina Coladas, Tropical Sunshine, and Earning Adventures

Jim Sayers considers himself a very lucky man. “I have lived in three Central American countries—Panama, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica—and am in love with each one,” he says. “In each the people are so friendly. Add to that a wonderful year-round climate and most of the stressful issues associated with living in Canada or the U.S. are virtually non-existent.

Paris-Arc-du-Triomphe

Capture Paris on Video…and Pay for Your Travels

Travel videographer Tom Reissmann makes a very comfortable living—pulling in about $80,000 a year—making short videos while traveling the world and living wherever he pleases. And, after following Tom for a week in Paris with a group of fellow beginners, I found out how easy it is to learn to create professional-looking videos you can sell in less than a week.

dubrovnik

Get Paid to See Rain Forests, Wildlife, and Europe

I am a full-time travel videographer, which means I get paid to travel the world and shoot videos for travel companies. I’ve been doing it for the past 10 years and I’m now making about $80,000 a year at it. Being a travel videographer is a dream job. I had always dreamt of going on safari in Africa and capturing the wildlife with my camera.

Tapping into Boquete’s Thriving Food Scene

At a crossroads in his career, Chris Young left Missouri with his family for the mountain town of Boquete, in Panama’s Chiriquí province, five years ago. Here, in a town with a low cost of living, low costs of doing business, and a thriving culinary culture, he found the perfect place to realize his dreams of becoming a chef. Today, after immersing himself in the area’s exciting food scene, he indulges his passion by preparing delicious meals for expats and locals alike.

“I Have Found my Calling” on a Tropical Island

Tired of being stuffed in an office cubicle all day, every day, Dan Williams had to make a choice: stay the course, or scrape together the money he had and head off for the white sands and blue waters of the Dominican Republic. He took the second option… Now—when he’s not catching up with expat buddies and enjoying his time in the sand—Dan supports his new lifestyle with Dan and Manty’s Guesthouse, the business he co-owns with his Dominican partner.

Videography

Use Your Smartphone to Get Travel Perks and Paychecks

Have you seen the online video where Jimmy Kimmel tells parents to pretend their child’s Halloween candy is all gone while recording the child’s reaction? Or how about the one where Walter White from Breaking Bad is a pharmacist in an Esurance commercial…the one where the Budweiser Clydesdales save a puppy…the “Bad Lip Reading” spoofs of the presidential debates and the NFL…?

Take Your Skills Online for a More Relaxed Lifestyle Overseas

Dr. Haywood Hall is on call. It’s a mild summer afternoon, and he’s sitting in the garden of his house in Guanajuato, Mexico. His laptop is open on the table in front of him, and his cellphone sits beside it. He checks the phone periodically for messages, tapping out quick replies as needed. He’s dressed in a T-shirt and shorts, and he’ll likely still be wearing these if he greets any patients this afternoon. That’s because Haywood works in the growing field of telemedicine, and his “meetings” with patients will be long-distance—a verbal consultation over his cellphone.

Business-Time

Take Charge of Your Time and Have More Fun

There are numerous reasons for wanting to be self-employed. Money is only one of them. For more and more of us, a big motivation is being in charge of our own time. It may sound like a radical notion at first.

isla mujeres

How to Take Your U.S. Job to a Tropical Island

Isla Mujeres is small. At five miles long and a half-mile wide, Valerie Pasnau feels it provides the perfect lifestyle for her and her husband, John. It’s easy to understand why they would choose the picturesque Caribbean island just eight miles off the coast of Cancún, Mexico. “The island has everything we need and almost everything we want,” she says. “What we don’t find here, we can find in Cancún, just a short ferry ride away.”

Paris

Here’s the Perfect Visa for a Writer in France

“What I love the most about Paris is every day brings an opportunity to see and do something new. It stimulates the brain. Every street you haven’t traveled down before leaves you room for discovery and learning,” says Texas native Leah Walker.

Curiosity

Bring a Sense of Curiosity on Your Big Adventure

Bring a Sense of Curiosity on Your Big Adventure. “It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education,” observed Albert Einstein. For many of us, sadly, the destruction of curiosity began long before our school days. When I was growing up, my incessant questions were often dismissed with a reminder that curiosity killed the cat. The message, intended or not, was that shrinking was preferable to exploring. This repeated warning has an impact that goes far beyond the deceased cat.

e-book-writing

A Simple Shortcut to Profit in Online Publishing

The perfect strategy for your first venture in e-book publishing is to create a shorter version of a successful book. Reading habits have changed and people want content that’s a fast read. Amazon even has a special category for “short reads,” and sales in that segment are exploding. Four of the top five short read books in the “Business & Money” section are piggyback books.

e-book

Use This Secret E-book Strategy for Million-Dollar, Online Earning

In 1919 E. Haldeman-Julius had a brilliant idea. He would take books from the public domain (out-of-copyright books that are freely available for anyone to use without paying royalties), change their titles, and print them for sale. In their small format and their blue covers, they became known to the public as “Little Blue Books.” To say they were popular is an understatement. Haldeman-Julius eventually sold more than 100 million copies of 3,000 different books.

Earn Big on E-books…Without Writing a Word

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is one of the most popular business books of all time, having sold more than 25 million copies. The well-known author is the late Dr. Stephen Covey. But Dr. Covey didn’t write the book. Ken Shelton did, as his ghostwriter.

Is This The Easiest Way to Earn Overseas?

You speak English. What if you could turn that into a moneymaking asset? Teaching English as a second language has, of course, long been a popular occupation for those moving abroad. While requirements vary from country to country, being certified to teach English as a foreign language makes it easier to find a position. There are numerous programs offering certification.

Easy Income in a “Wild and Wonderful” Country

For 63-year old Trent Wauson, “Bolivia is a hidden gem.” The former medical laboratory director hadn’t planned on leaving his job to set up a B&B and restaurant in the foothills of the Bolivian Andes, but in 2004 that’s exactly what happened. Eleven years later, he and his wife Rosario couldn’t be happier. “Coming to Bolivia was a fresh start. I always wanted to have a bed and breakfast, and here it seemed like nothing could stop me,” says Trent.

Creating a Coffee Culture in Placencia, Belize

Keith Morrison loves the great sailing and Caribbean lifestyle in Placencia. Keith Morrison, 58, scoured two continents for the perfect place to start his coffee shop: an English-speaking country with a laidback, affordable lifestyle, warm weather, good sailing, and low taxes. He found all these in Placencia, on Belize’s southern coast. Now he enjoys a terrific Caribbean lifestyle when he’s not overseeing operations at his Above Grounds Coffee House.

Total Relaxation on the Coast…With a Profitable Vacation Rental

“The weather is wonderful—very warm, can be hot, with a sprinkling of showers every once in a while. Coming from our cold temperatures in Canada we appreciate not having to bundle up for five months,” says Colleen Tannahill who along with her husband Blake owns a condo on the Caribbean coast of Mexico. “We are very happy with our rental occupancy and we’ve had a strong return so far. We have a rental manager who has our property posted online and we also spread the word ourselves.”

Turn Your Overseas Fantasy to Reality With a Profitable Vacation Rental

Mornings are lazy in Fiji. The slim thread of light in between the insulated curtains finally wakes me, just in time for breakfast at about 10 a.m. I slip into a bathing suit, tie a sarong on, and I’m ready for the day. The smiling maids, Rozy and Reshmi, greet me as I come down from the master suite—dubbed the Penthouse by past guests. Before me is a feast. Omelets, fresh fruit, an Indian delicacy or two, and a pile of toast, served up with coffee and fresh juice.

France

Earning from My Apartment on the French Riviera

When I set out to find a property in Nice, the idea was to have a vacation home…consider a possible future retirement there…and use it to expand my property rentals business from Paris to the French Riviera. Nice was my city of choice for a few reasons. This is the hub of the Riviera. It’s a real city with a lot of life, a real heart and great inner-city transportation so you don’t need a car.

Fiji

Easy Income With Overseas Benefits

When I wake up in my vacation rental home in Fiji, and pull back the curtains to see blue waters…picturesque islands…my private pool…the hanging bed…I know I made a great decision buying this place. I get to spend two weeks a year chilling out here…snorkeling every day, just a short walk down my private stairs. It’s like swimming in an aquarium. The coral is so pristine and healthy.

Ecuador

The Top-Dollar Income That Anyone Can Earn

Living overseas…traveling at will to any destination you choose…with an income that follows you wherever you go…it isn’t a dream when you become a freelance copywriter. How lucrative is this? You can easily earn $2,500 to $8,000 a month…perhaps even more if you want to work full-time at it.

Italy

High School Dropout Scores $10,000 Paycheck: You Can Too

When I chose to drop out of school at 14, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life other than to fulfill my lifelong dream to travel the world. Back then, I didn’t know how I would do so, I just knew I would make it happen. I grew up next door to an Italian family, the Picos, who had migrated to Australia with their sons, Giovanni and Pietro.

Cuenca

Earn Six Figures…With a Third of the Year Off

“Are you still working?” is a question I get asked a lot these days. Instead of working a steady 40-hour work-week with just a few weeks’ vacation, I’m routinely taking up a third of the year off…while still making a full-time income. I live in Cuenca, Ecuador, where my costs are a fraction of what they would be back home in Nebraska. I can dine out regularly in top-rated restaurants and afford to have a cleaning lady once a week.

Colombia

Earn the Big Bucks for a Life of Ease Overseas

Waking up every morning to the beautiful views of Medellin’s Aburra Valley is like a dream compared to the corporate life I left behind in America. Back then I dreaded the buzzing alarm clock jolting me out of a restful sleep followed by a 60-minute, rush-hour commute to my office only 15 miles away. Then wasting eight hours in a cubicle doing work I hated only to repeat the one-hour commute to get home.

Panama

Chiriquí Needs a Handyman and Lawn-Care Service

One almost sure-fire way to succeed in business is to find a gap that needs filling, or a niche that is unoccupied. And right now there’s a great big gap in the Chiriquí Province of western Panama for home maintenance, lawn care, and handyman services. Of course, there are locals who carry out yard work, but that laidback outlook that expats find so appealing in some ways can leave them waiting to have work done. And when it comes to home repairs, it’s hard to find qualified tradesmen with the right tools. With an expat population of around 20,000, Chiriquí Province has a market.

Testimonial

I really appreciate all the time and effort you took to put this conference together. A great deal of information was available and I am still processing. I spoke to several of the presenters and found them all too eager to answer questions and chat. I’m looking forward to getting the copy of the Fast Track Ecuador Conference. – Adagia DiGaia
