Fund your Life Overseas Quiz

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.

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 Quito 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.

Every Day is a Vacation Day in Ecuador

Every Day is a Vacation Day in Ecuador

Every morning, my husband, Mark, and I wake up to a view of Cuenca's Old-World charm...majestic cathedral spires rising before us. Then we take our morning walk along the Yununcay River where cultured gardens line the bike and walking trails. Ecuador reminds me of Italy. We spent time in Europe as a young couple and planned to retire to Italy...until we discovered Ecuador. We fell in love with the cobblestone streets, terracotta-roofed brick buildings, colonial churches, plazas, outdoor cafés, and wrought-iron balconies draped in bougainvillea. Mark and I retired to Cuenca, Ecuador, four years ago on a pensioner's visa which we live on. Our monthly budget is $1,317 a month—my husband's pension from UPS—but we earn that much or more on our new incomes.

Regardless of whether your business sells a product or supplies a service, you can run it seamlessly from anywhere in the world.

I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to know that I can pack up all of my belongings in just a few minutes and move my home and work into a new exotic country as often as I’d like.

Get Paid to Travel Like a VIP

Get Paid to Travel Like a VIP

This summer, I got an email from a stranger offering me a free stay in a gorgeous French countryside cottage. I was welcome anytime, the kind and excited woman told me, and so was my world-traveling dog, Luna. Her cottage, which was spacious and beautifully appointed, was in the Loire Valley—a part of France known for its castles and sweeping landscapes. A well-traveled friend of mine told me it was the perfect place for leisurely bike rides and warm croissants. Similarly, a month or so later, a restaurant in Italy reached out. They would love to have me come for dinner and they wanted to know if I was planning a trip to Bolzano—the intriguing Italian-German part of northern Italy—anytime soon. A few weeks after that, another restaurant, this time in my favorite European capital—Paris—sent me a fancy invitation to a VIP tasting event.

Get an Instant Income From e-Book Publishing

Get an Instant Income From e-Book Publishing

When I was getting started in the e-book business, I thought it would be a long time before I could create an actual book (I've since learned shortcuts for doing it quickly). Part of my solution was to use books from the public domain for free—as I told you about yesterday. That works for older material, but a strategy that provided me with more contemporary books was licensing existing print books...converting them to an e-book format...and paying the author part of the royalties I collected.
