I hear you're looking for a portable income to help you move overseas. I don't blame you. Why live where you don't want to...when you can live anywhere? The beaches of Central American are on your doorstep...Southeast Asia has some beautiful—and low-cost—places where you can set up home...and the cultures of Europe are waiting to be explored.

Working my way through the busy marketplace exploding with vibrant colors and bustling with locals carrying out their daily grind, my heart swells with content. Not a day goes by that I am not grateful to live in such an interesting and friendly place that is so full of life.

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.

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.
