There’s a way to make good money—cold hard cash—surfing the Internet in your spare time. In fact, there's an entire industry that wants to pay you up to $50 an hour...And all you have to do is sit at home and check out websites!
Not just any websites, of course...These people tell you exactly what they need. You just look it up for them, e-mail it to them...And get paid! If you're looking for a way to make an extra $1,000, $2,000 a month part-time, in just an hour or so, a few evenings a week, or perhaps want a new career that you can do from anywhere in the world, then Internet research is for you.
Internet research as a job can give you the ultimate freedom and flexibility of self-employment. And the best part about it is, you never have to go to an office...there’s no commute...no “boss” breathing down your neck. It can all be done from the comfort of your own home, wherever in the world that home may be. As there's Internet access where you are, you have a great, well-paying job.
And you can work as many hours a week as suits you. It can be a couple of hours a week, a couple of days a week…or a full-time job. It’s completely up to you.

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…
A decade after leaving the corporate world and moving to Mexico, the word that best sums up my move is “freedom.” These days I’m visiting five to seven countries a year. I have the freedom to set my own schedule…decide what days are workdays…enjoy lunch at the beach with my feet in the warm sand…or park myself in a coffee shop in an easy-going colonial city.
It was thanks to a health scare in 2009 that I finally took the big step to becoming my own boss. For 25 years, I had worked as a magazine publishing executive for companies like Forbes, Times Mirror Magazine, and Crain’s New York Business. Even though I loved my career, even though it was fulfilling and I was successful, it was still a job, and I still didn’t control my own time.
The first time I saw this sight, I wondered, “What the heck!” The photo above was taken in San Miguel de Allende—one of my favorite cities in all of Latin America… (Apparently a few other people like it as much as I do—in 2013 it was voted the #1 travel destination by Condé Nast Traveler readers.)
Imagine you are on the coast of Ecuador, taking in the sweeping ocean view, the comfortable year-round temperatures, and relaxing in the quiet stillness of an area that isn’t over-run with traffic and noise…
Living or travelling abroad for extended periods of time is something most only dream of…and for good reason. It certainly was for me seven years ago. However as I write this, I am sitting in a high-rise in Panama, having just arrived from six weeks of sunshine and warm weather on the Pacific coast of Mexico.
Building an online income that travels with you is the perfect activity for the live abroad Baby Boomer, for a number of reasons. Firstly, a solid part-time income might mean you can move more quickly and take advantage of the lower cost of living in some countries…typically 50% to 70% lower. Secondly, you’re going to be doing something that will help keep you mentally active…very important to long-term mental and physical health
I revealed the “hidden” market to about a dozen aspiring entrepreneurs recently, and they were shocked! They didn’t know this thing existed. As I’ve explained to you this week, this market is “hidden” from most people because they don’t know where to look.
Jensen Wheeler Wolfe is a yoga instructor and “momtrepreneur” in New York City. Jensen teaches yoga to children and adults, and during one of her sessions she had an idea to make simple and colorful yoga mats for kids. She cut up a large piece of foam matting into small rectangles for the kids in her class.
China exports more than $1 trillion in goods each year. And that opens the door to an incredible opportunity for people who want to make money online. But it’s important to understand how the game is played. There is a website that has become one of the largest and most successful online marketplaces in the world.
Buy low. Sell high. That’s business at its core. It’s a plan that works. It is simply tried and true. And it’s never been easier to execute this than it is today. You can get world-class products directly from their manufacturer online, and then you can sell those products on Amazon (at astonishingly deep discounts) without ever having to deal with the product physically in your home or office.
Without a doubt, the very first step to earning online is believing you can. I speak from experience. Finding that self-belief was a big barrier for me when I stated working online 13 years ago. And I’m not the only one. Many Baby Boomers I’ve helped learn how to earn online have approached the task with a sense of skepticism.
Freelance is the fastest growing segment of the “new jobs economy” and you can earn good money…working from your favorite international location…with skills you already have. You may have a hidden asset “account” that you’re not aware of… And you won’t find it by scouring the web for misdirected tax refunds, uncollected lottery winnings, or abandoned bank accounts.
Working online is distinctly different from working in a “bricks-and-mortar” world. What most of us Baby Boomers thought of as our occupations are not in demand…(yeah, bummer!) But some of our skills are extremely valuable and if parlayed properly could put you on the…
Over the last few days we’ve talked about freelance assignment for work abroad travelers…and today I want to get right down to ground level to show you what this looks like. Let’s say you’re a school teacher.
When I speak at International Living conferences, many attendees are surprised by the wide variety of online jobs available for their specific skills set. In fact, most of them don’t really think they have much to offer in the area of online work because they don’t have training in all the “technical stuff.”
In my work with thousands of Baby Boomers over the last few years I have learned that most see a few barriers standing between them and their goal of earning an online, take-abroad income. My “New Year Income Challenge” will help you knock down these barriers in a fun, interactive way (details here) but the first step is taking a closer look at which barrier(s) might be holding you back.
How would your 2014 be different if you had a portable income? For a start, you would have a lot more choice and options for living overseas. You could decide to live by the beach or in a quiet mountain town in your favorite country abroad—part-time or full-time. Or, you could fund your travels around the world.
Is 2014 your year to create your portable income? An income that flows no matter where you are in the world…an income that gives you the freedom to travel and live abroad…an income that taps into the knowledge and skills you have honed in your career and personal life. You can create this income by working online.
It’s possible to pursue your hobby and bring in some cash before and during retirement. These hobbies can help you to fund your life as a retiree overseas. If you’re dreaming of an apartment in Paris…a beach house in Ecuador…a farmhouse in Italy…and the only thing holding you back is lack of capital…then read on. Your interests can turn into a career that you love…
There is a tidal wave of opportunity coming your way… Opportunity that could pave the way quickly for your live-abroad move. In fact, whether you want to live in Cuenca, Panama City or Paris, that move could now be financially more comfortable…and you could make it with greater mental satisfaction than you might otherwise expect.
One of my favorite stories is about a retired school teacher I know. Right now, she’s living in Mexico…and is earning what she calls “M&M money.” It’s not for the candy. It’s money for massages and margaritas.
If you’re planning to make the big move abroad, you can create a new occupation for yourself right now—something you will simply love doing and make money from at the same time.
Living in the sleepy coastal town of Huatulco, Mexico, I’m able to fund my life overseas working from home. And if you have access to the Internet, you too can fund your life from wherever you want to live in the world.
Winton Churchill knows what it’s like to spend hours stuck in traffic on the way to the office… He’s well acquainted with the daily grind of a 9-5 lifestyle… Because that was his life in Los Angeles, Dallas and Boston. But then Winton had a revelation.
Almost every business now has—or wants to have—a lively and informative website. Making a website is much simpler now than it was in the early days of the Internet. The process has improved so much that, these days, just about any business can afford one… And that’s why there’s a great (and growing) opportunity for you if you’re good with words.
For a long time, the thought that a “non-techie” could live overseas and work online was pretty much a fantasy. But today, things have changed dramatically. The demand for people with non-technical skills who are willing to work online is soaring. The “New Year Income Challenge” is specially designed to make it easy for people like you who want to work online to link up with companies willing to pay.
When I talk to International Living readers about their plans to move abroad I’m often asked, “Where is the best place to move if I want to earn an income?” I gently explain that is really the wrong question because today, you can earn an income from virtually any place on the globe you have an Internet connection.
“What kind of job could I do, over the Internet, as I travel and live overseas?” If that’s what you’ve been thinking about recently, I’d like to show you a few examples of what could work for you. These simple, bite-sized jobs can be done quickly and allow plenty of play-time once complete. A lot of people still think “working over the Internet” means you have to be a technology whiz…
Over the last few years I’ve had the pleasure of working with people who want to either travel extensively or live overseas while they continue to earn an income. The knowledge that you have the ability to keep money flowing in while you travel can be very liberating. When you can earn from anywhere, doors suddenly start to open.
