Wouldn’t you like to become location independent and work from anywhere in the world right from your laptop?
Most people probably would.
If I were a smart man I would sell you this information, but I’m stupid and I’m going to give it to you for free.
What is location independence, anyway?
Location independence is a cool buzzword that means you make money from the internet and you do some travelling.
So what’s the secret to becoming location independent? It must be really hard to make all that money to afford traveling all the time, huh?
Before I tell you the secret, let me go over a few things with you….
Location independence doesn’t really mean you can work from anywhere in the world, any time. What location independence really means is that you can work from a 3rd world country or countries.
The vast majority of location independent bloggers do not make very much money by western standards. They are not flying back and forth from New York City to London to Paris to Sydney.
Location independent entrepreneurs spend most of their time in Southeast Asia or South America.
Why do they spend their time in Southeast Asia and South America?
Because it’s very, very cheap to live and spend time in those countries, those countries are fun, and location independent entrepreneurs can’t afford to live in high priced countries.
How much does it cost to live in Southeast Asia or South America?
A whole lot less than you probably make every two weeks.
You can live in and travel around Southeast Asia and South America for between $500-$1,000 USD per month. And you can live very well on that money, way better than the locals.
Which is great because most location independent entrepreneurs make between $500-$1,000 USD per month.
That’s the secret.
You don’t have to make very much money to live very well in those countries.
How do location independent entrepreneurs make their money?
That’s easy. They have blogs and ebooks, just like this article, that they sell to you so you can learn how to become location independent just like them. For only $39.95 per month you can learn how to become location independent just like them!
Being “Location Independent” is their job. That’s how they make their money.
Do you want to become location independent?
Great! All you have to do is make the decision, and then sell yourself, your articles, your e-books, your forum, your whatever to other people who also want to become location independent.
How can I do that?
First, you start by learning the ins and outs of blogging. Check out the No Bullshit Guide to Making Money Online and use the resources to start your first blog(s).
If you are new to internet work then you will need some time to learn before you jump on a plane to the Philippines.
But it can be done, and it can be done quite quickly if you put in the time and effort.
Making $500-$1,000 per month is chump change and any person reading this article can do it. The question is do you want to?
There are much better ways to make money than by becoming a location independent entrepreneur.
But there are no other ways, that I know of, to go and travel the world and have it paid for.
How can you get started?
Think of it like this: People want information. What information can you provide?
Everyone is an expert in something. Everyone has a particular hobby they are knowledegable about.
If not, then you can learn about something and write about your findings.
Turn it into a nice package and sell it.
