The Ultimate Dream for many

The Ultimate Dream for many…..living anywhere in the world and running a business and making a killer income!

For years, I dreamt of being able to live and work from anywhere in the world. The sandy beaches of Hawaii, the warm lakes in Arizona, the cool mountains in Switzland. Pipe dream? Not anymore…..

What I do want to share though is the concept of “Location Independent” living. Today with the great technologies available and the advent of the Internet, there lies a huge movement of people dropping their nine to five jobs and adopting a new lifestyle working from new locales.

For many people, you don’t always have to move to the tropics or some ski village in the Alps. Everyday I talk to people in the Peace Country who get transferred to new communities in BC and Alberta, or choose to take time off their careers to persue starting a family. For many this can result in a major disruption of income or a career change. But there are ways around this …read one.

Ignoring all the creative ways to take time off or take sabbaticals, there has never been a better time to start a small business that can be totally portable. This can provide new moms or anyone making a move a solution to work remotely.

Here is a hypothetical example…..you are a career woman whose partner/spouse transfers to a new community on the other side of the province. You work n a local business from Monday to Friday putting in time. Like many families, you are working during the day while a sitter watches your kids. You need the second income, but after paying taxes and fees, in the end you are only taking home a small chunk of change. What do you do?

One option is to develop a business that you can:

– run anywhere in the world using a laptop and internet connection
– a business that you can run at home on the kitchen table or a spare room
– a business that doesn’t require thousands of dollars in overhead
– a business where you can work whatever hours you want….maybe when the kids are asleep

If you are interested in this sort of thing, drop me a comment below and I will provide more information if there is interest. I want to mention, that I am NOT selling MLM, a product or get rich scheme. I don’t have to as there are LOTS of legitimate businesses that can be run!
