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

income overseas

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.

Paris

Get Paid $5,000 to Explore Paris

Every year I get paid to visit Paris. I always find something new about the city to explore. And I have my old favorites…sipping excellent coffee in Cafe Danton on the Boulevard Saint-Germain…browsing through the stacked books in the Shakespeare & Company, once a haunt of writers like Hemingway and Ford Madox Ford…or strolling in […]

Costa Rica: Portable Incomes in a Land of Opportunity

Each morning, my boyfriend, Sean, and I sleep in until about 9 a.m.—we rarely set an alarm. More often than not, we wake up to the bustling of the coffee shop next door. We each order a cup of fresh-brewed coffee and a breakfast of fresh scrambled eggs and gallo pinto (typical Costa Rican rice and beans).

How We Escaped the Snow and Halved Our Costs in Costa Rica

Last December, my husband and I were bundled up in our tiny apartment in Chicago, mourning over the snow and sub-zero temperatures, when we came up with a crazy idea: Let’s sell all of our stuff and move somewhere tropical. When we sat down to talk about the things we truly wanted, it simply came down to creating a life where we control our time and spend it doing things we enjoy. Sometimes, it seems a bit surreal that we now live a five-minute walk to the Pacific Ocean, learning the pura vida way in Costa Rica.

Birds, Stunning Views, and a Grow-Your-Own Life in Costa Rica

Rita Lucas could not be happier with her life in Costa Rica. “I love the climate…living outdoors most of the time…and my community,” she says. “Living rurally and having my office in my outdoor living room with the stunning view is the icing on my cake.” And what a view it is. Rita’s property is nestled in the mountain range that runs through southern Costa Rica to the southern Pacific coast.

How to Find Your Perfect Organic Farm in Ecuador’s Andes

Your day starts with a cup of coffee brewed from beans grown right outside your window. Stepping onto the terrace, you look out over rows of hand-planted, organic avocado trees growing lush and tall in the equatorial sun. Beyond them is a patchwork of farms and forests overshadowed by the towering Andes Mountains. Breakfast is eggs from your free range hens, with slices of papaya and a juice prepared from freshly picked naranjillas (think lime mixed with rhubarb) grown on your own patch of land. You breathe in the fresh, clean mountain air and savor the sound of the nearby river and the birds singing on your own peaceful mountain retreat.

A “New Chapter” in Coastal Panama

Where else can you wake up in the morning, put on shorts and a t-shirt, sit outside, and have breakfast from the fruit on your property with delicious, locally grown coffee? Our new lives are great,” says Sue Dickinson. Home for Sue and her husband Jim is the tiny fishing village of Boca Chica, on the coast of Panama’s Chiriquí province.

Working the Latitudes for a Low-Stress Life

We’ve been everywhere, all over Costa Rica,” says Jessica Sueiro of her family’s travels through this Central American haven. “This week we’re going to Flamingo beach on the northern Pacific, Montezuma on the Nicoya Peninsula, and the mountain town of Monteverde, with the cloud forest.”

Living Rich in Costa Rica for Much Less Than the U.S.

When Riley Jesson first mentioned that he wanted to get out of the rat race, his wife Samantha was unsure. Both of them were advertising executives in San Francisco and she was making a name for herself climbing the corporate ladder. They were on great career paths…but they weren’t happy. So they decided to go in 2008. They had traveled to Costa Rica several times and—like many others—they fell in love with the people and the climate.

The Pleasures of a Beach Business in Costa Rica

Stephanie Gough can hardly believe how quickly the five years has gone since she moved, with her family, to Costa Rica. “It’s kind of crazy that it’s been that long,” says Stephanie, who lives in the bustling beach town of Tamarindo, on Costa Rica’s northern Pacific coast.

Earn with Opportunities in “Paradise on Earth”

In 2005, I decided to leave the U.S. for good and move to Panama. The tropical climate is perfect for me—especially the Caribbean isles of Bocas del Toro. Near Panama’s northern border, Bocas is what you picture when someone says “paradise on earth”—white sands, jewel-toned waters, swaying palms, and a slow pace of life. Bocas is just one of Panama’s many, many treasures. If I wanted to I could spend every single day of the year on a different isle or mainland beach.

Granada

Find Fulfillment by Starting a Business Abroad

On my first trip to Granada, Nicaragua several years ago, I stopped in a small bookshop in the historic colonial quarter, just a few blocks from the main square. It was evident the owner—an expat from California—was a lover of literature. Classics…science fiction…travelogues…histories…and more lined the shelves. As I chatted to him, it emerged that he got started when he was just passing through Granada and, looking to make a bit of extra travel money…he laid books out on a blanket on the street to sell.

Fulfilling a Dream on Mexico’s Riviera Maya

After a long career in the restaurant industry in New York and New Jersey, Anthony Chalas was ready for a change. He wanted his own place, where he could fulfill his vision of a seaside restaurant serving Greek food. And he found it on Mexico’s Riviera Maya, in the sleepy fishing village and expat haven of Puerto Morelos. His restaurant, La Sirena, sits on the town square, just across the street from a white-sand beach. Set on the second floor, it allows diners to see the vivid blue sea from the eatery’s open-air deck

Boquete

Escaping the Emergency Room to Brew Beer in Panama

“I brew beer for a living. How bad can it be?” asks Dave O’Keeffe of the Boquete Brewing Company in Panama. Dave is originally from San Diego and previously worked as an ER nurse in Oregon. “When I decided I wanted to open my own business brewing beer I started looking overseas,” he says. “The market in Oregon is already saturated but here in Panama it’s just getting started. The annual Brew Fest celebration in Panama City gets bigger every year.”

San-Juan-Del-Sur

$200 a Month to Rent and 22 Beaches to Play On

Monica Sedgwick and her husband, James, wandered into the laidback Nicaraguan beach town of San Juan del Sur about seven years ago. The pair were immediately hooked on its gorgeous beaches…quieter lifestyle…fun people…and the fact that it was cheap to live there.

Playa-Del-Carmen

Find Fun, Sun, and Opportunity in Playa del Carmen

Six years ago, my husband, Jose Luis, and I wondered what the future would hold and where we could live affordably once we reached 60. We had set up and run restaurants from Miami to New Hampshire and from St. Petersburg to Las Vegas and we were ready for a break. When we found Playa del Carmen on the Mexican Caribbean, it surpassed all our dreams…beaches that stretched for miles, a perfect climate year-round, and the opportunity to invest and run a business.

From Farm to Food Truck in Latin America

If you love growing your own…pickling and preserving…smoking and curing… crafting gourmet recipes…or any manner of artisan food production, Latin America is ripe with opportunity. You can make a living selling your creations via farmers markets, food trucks, or small-scale distribution. Take Dom and Angela Najab, who left Toronto, Canada, in 2011 and arrived in […]

China

How to Make Money with a Trip to China

I am in China. Again. It’s my fourth time in Guangzhou. Friends wonder why I keep coming back to this southern city. But they’ve never been to the Canton Fair Complex… Football-stadium-sized buildings fill city blocks. Each has half-a-dozen floors. And inside, you’ll find furniture, electronics, clothes, food…nearly everything…at factory-direct prices.

Incomes Abroad

Enjoy a Nomadic Lifestyle in the Sun on a Writer’s Income

Sitting down to write at the brightly-colored Mexican tile table on my patio, I let my eyes rest on the back garden… giant ferns…red geraniums in glazed green urns…and a stone fountain where goldfish swim and lilies bloom. The front garden is just as luxurious, with sweet-smelling jasmine climbing the wall and a central fountain providing night music.

Bogota

Good Health and Culture in Bogota, Colombia

Bogota, Colombia has a pace, rhythm, culture, and dialect all its own. It’s home to three of the region’s leading universities, two prominent symphonies, dozens of museums, art galleries, and performance centers. Living here you’ll have a calendar full of social, cultural, sports, and historical commemoration events.

If You’re Not Earning This Way, You’re Missing Out

Every day, I take a break from work around 1 p.m. I grab the leash, shoo the dogs out the door, pop in my headphones, and spend 45 minutes listening to NPR as I walk through the park. Some days I stop for a taco on the way home. I often pause to chat with my neighbors. I live in Mexico City, famed for its chaotic sidewalks, ruthless traffic, and millions of inhabitants. But as a freelancer in a cozy neighborhood just outside of the Centro Historico, I barely notice the hustle and bustle as I take my time.

Discover the Secret to Easy Conversation—in Spanish

Playing with language should be enjoyable. After all, it’s a hobby not a chore. And that’s exactly how I approach teaching Spanish. You can dabble in it or get serious about it but you should always be enjoying yourself. For instance, I paint pictures in my spare time, but I don’t want to go to art school and become a renowned artist. I just want to dabble with my paints for the pleasure of it.

Spain

Savoring Spain and the World on a Freelance Income

I live on a Spanish island where the pace is relaxed and life is blissfully simple. In summer, I wake up early before the heat of the day sets in and head to the coast for my daily swim followed by a coffee at a beach bar. In winter I switch things around, taking long walks in the afternoons, and working once the light fades.

e-book

Turning $200 Into $50,000 on the e-Book Market

I once bought the rights to an e-book for $200 because I liked the content and thought others would find it helpful. I’ve since made more than $50,000 selling that e-book over the years! For the past couple of days I’ve been showing you how you can fund your life overseas using one of my cardinal business principles that “It’s more profitable to publish than it is to write.”

Desert

Earn from e-Books the Easy Way

One of the things I’ve learned in my years making money from e-books is that it’s more profitable to publish than it is to write. One of the most profitable ways to publish is to hire a writer. Hiring writers has afforded me the time and the income to travel to many of my “bucket list” destinations…like last year’s two-week safari to Zambia, Botswana, and South Africa.

Sorrento

The 78-Year-Old Book That Sent Me to Sorrento

For the last 15 years I’ve used my laptop to earn a small fortune from books and e-books. They’ve provided the income to send me to some of the most incredible destinations in the world…like the gorgeous Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria in Sorrento, Italy. Built on the spot that Roman Emperor August had his villa, it’s perched atop a breathtaking Mediterranean cliff with beautiful gardens and a tree that grows both lemons and oranges.

How to Make Money From the Back of an Elephant

I don’t own any animals and, for the most part, I tend not to get close to them. So what am I doing sitting 10 feet off the ground on the back of an African bush elephant in remote Zambia? The short answer is: “experiencing one of my lifelong dreams to go on safari.” And what a safari it was, exceeding my wildest imagination and giving me close-up encounters with lions, leopards, cheetahs, giraffes, and a long list of other wildlife.

Get $60,000 a Year From Your Overseas Home

I could never have afforded my tropical-island property if I didn’t use it to earn. And earn it does…I bring in between $50,000 and $60,000 a year. If you rent your second home part of the year, it can pay for itself. In fact, it may even make you a healthy profit. But you need to know how to successfully market your overseas dream pad to vacationers.

Tap Into the Income Potential of Your Own Experience

While it could be argued that every business is influenced and informed by our own experiences…a great deal of opportunity goes unused when we fail to see the potential of putting that experience to work to help others. In fact, personal experience lends itself to all sorts of enterprises. It’s really a matter of recognizing things that might be hiding in plain sight.

Explore the World Rent Free

I ’m now enjoying the glorious summer on Spain’s Mediterranean coast. Every morning, I start the day with a cup of coffee on the terrace overlooking Málaga Bay. I have a car to explore the area. Everything I need is close by: the grocery stores, vegetable market, shopping, and, of course, the world-class beaches of the Costa del Sol. And the best part about this? I don’t pay a cent for any of it.

Great Healthcare Inspires a Business in Mérida

It wasn’t until Tina Frewer suffered a serious health issue that she discovered how good the medical care was in Mérida, a city of nearly one million people on the western side of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. After receiving excellent care at Star Médica, one of two top-rated hospitals in Mérida, and attention from the area’s top specialists, Tina was inspired. Why not help medical tourists who come to Mexico for low-cost, high-quality surgeries and dental care navigate the city and the system? As a patient advocate/medical tourism concierge, Tina now connects expat patients with doctors and healthcare facilities through her business, HealthItinerary.

A “Fishy Business” on the Riviera Maya

We enjoy the beach when we have time,” says Joseph Ader of his new life on Mexico’s Riviera Maya. “I love what I do. And I love the climate here. It’s very similar to Florida, which is one of the biggest producers of fish for food and the hobby trade. That’s one of the reasons it’s such a good business here.” As a kid growing up in Pennsylvania, Joseph helped his grandmother with her tropical fish aquariums, not realizing he was setting himself up for his future career.

Puerto-Rico

Kiss the Corporate World Good-Bye and Earn Online

On my 45th birthday I told my husband I did not want to still be living in Arizona when I turned 50. We had lived in Arizona for 35 years, while I worked in the corporate sector…in management, customer services, business analysis, and training. These days we live in Puerto Rico where my husband has a new career as a scuba instructor and I work freelance. The low cost of living allows us to have a great life…with fewer hours and less stress than corporate life.

Mexico

Savoring Mexico with an Online Income

I enjoyed my 18 years working as a veterinarian. It was a stressful, demanding, but very rewarding career helping animals and their humans. The down side was that I had to be at a certain place, at a certain time, on a very regular schedule. Now, I live in Mexico and work on my own time. Over the past year I have lived in two different cities in Mexico…one in Guatemala…and visited every country in Central America. I was able to spend as long as I wanted getting to know the places that I had become interested in over the years.

Three Countries, One Amazing Portable Income

I lost my job due to the recession. I worked for a bank, and when they decided to “right size” the organization, my job was eliminated. Fortunately my husband, Ron, and I had been researching ways to work from home so we could one day realize our dream of traveling the world. I had familiarized myself with my freelance options and we had already taken an exploratory trip to Ecuador.

Boquete

Earning in the U.S…Living in Panama’s Highlands

“We were drawn to Panama by the size of the country and all it has to offer…large cities with great shopping…the number of expats, and the friendly, relatively easy visa process,” says Kimberly Call. Kimberly and her husband, Dale, and their family were living in Texas when they decided it was time for a lifestyle change. Dale had spent over 40 years in the grocery business and was ready to leave it behind him. He feels that Panama is a good place for him to start a new business.

Quito

How a Portable Income Funds Travels in Ecuador

Right now, my wife, Susan, and I are packing up our home and heading off on our travels—first on a road trip in the U.S. and then to Ecuador. We’re going to fly to Guayaquil and then catch a bus down to Loja, a university town known for music and colonial architecture. This will be our base from which to explore the south of this beautiful country.

Wake Up to Your Income Potential

Much of my day is spent grabbing baby boomers by the lapels—virtually—and shaking them awake to the avalanche of income opportunity that awaits them in the freelance economy. Around 2008 came the severe economic downturn and companies began shedding like crazy—employees, staff, offices, buildings, health insurance…

Is this the Perfect Portable Income?

Ever since the internet caught on, people have been figuring out how to use a laptop to connect with money-making opportunities all over the world. As a result, there’s now between 3.3 million and 8 million completely untethered workers roaming the globe. I’m thrilled to be one of them.

Swapping New York Winters for a House on the Beach

After working as an electrician for over 27 years, Jeff Brewer was ready for something new that didn’t involve another snowy winter in New York. In March 2014, as the piles of dirty snow still filled parking lots and street corners, Jeff decided he’d had enough.

Cash in on the Latest Trends in Vacation Rentals

You may remember a time, as recently as a decade ago, where vacation rentals were simply in beach areas. If you were like me, you got a huge catalog each spring, in full color, with a tiny photo of each house, and a cryptic description: “2bd/2bath Between the roads, onsite parking, rooftop view.”

Testimonial

I had a wonderful time – learning, networking and sharing stories, making new friends – and planning for the future. Looking forward to more tomorrow. And thank you for the entertainment, scrumptious snacks and good feelings.
