As an avid traveler, I have to admit that I having been spending time looking at my upcoming options for when we are post-covid-19. It looks really exciting. You probably already know that tiny homes, van life, mountain living and ‘living cheap overseas’ have become VERY appealing and available. More of us want to simplify our lives, have flexibility and a healthy environment.  We are no longer focused on just making money and accumulating stuff. We are now more focused on living life without stress, lowering overhead, and finding freedom. The world isn’t just sick physically, we are sick of how we have been living and more people don’t want to go back to that life. Quality of life has never been more important! Money is great if it is supporting what you love. Otherwise, it is just a heart attack waiting to happen. People want simple and most of all FREEDOM! How do we achieve that?

Are you coming to the conclusion that you CAN live without so much ‘stuff’ and that it actually feels good to have less? Do you imagine getting up and going wherever you desire, when you desire without planning for weeks or even months? Who doesn’t? Sure there are some home bodies out there, but most people want freedom and a chance to change their environment once in a while. In fact, many want to make travel a way of life. Alas, internet businesses are giving people amazing lives and new companies are offering easy ways to live globally that are cheaper and hassle free. We want to be mobile. We want SIMPLE!

I have been looking at Portugal for a future visit and I loved the article I received today (ACCESS IT HERE) and truth be told, I have been living this lifestyle for a few years now. I escaped the career I was told was ‘success’ and went after what I really wanted. Independence! I achieved that by creating online businesses because travel and living globally can’t happen without an income that suits that lifestyle.  I bucked the system seven years ago, got training online that wasn’t popular at the time and changed everything. I was an investment banker with heart palpitations. Now, I have award winning books, a television movie, and internet businesses that I LOVE, are diversified, and cranking out a really nice income. Why aren’t more people doing this? What are they afraid of?


You can’t live that future lifestyle if you are trying to hang onto your past way of living. That is long gone and it’s not coming back. GOOD! I ditched the stress of investment banking to create an online business so that I could focus on things that I felt good about. Seven years ago that seemed like a ‘risk’ or a scheme, but I knew better. I knew that successful businesses were the ones online, lowering overhead, maintenance, and simplifying everything. They were the ones flourishing and I wanted to be a part of that. I knew that solo entrepreneurs could participate in that world. Seven years later, I have a life that most dream of. I can travel anywhere, choose my own schedule, and continually reinvent myself doing what I am passionate about. I found a team of trainers and a platform to make it happen. They DO exist out there. So why are people afraid to do the same? We don’t like change and we don’t like to work hard to get things.

I wonder why so many people are clinging to the old way of earning and living. It makes no sense to me. We work our tails off for years to save for retirement only to lose our portfolios yet won’t take a few months to learn skills that could be life changing. We want the lottery. But we know what happens to lottery winners. They usually end up broke and miserable because they haven’t changed their mindset. We all want to dream about that lifestyle but continue to do the same thing over and over again that can’t possibly create it.

Traveling to amazing places and having freedom is possible, but not if you have a job that is tying you down. The total package has to include a way to work remotely. It exists and there are amazing platforms, real training, that can make that happen for you. It is going to take a mind shift and decision to put in the work and get new skills. It is worth it!

I promote internet business training to the solo entrepreneur out there who dreams of that life of freedom and independence. In fact, because of the training I received, I am so good at building online businesses that I am now hired as a trainer to companies and individuals. These are skills I will have for life. I love it. I still write my books, launch online courses and create new products. No one tells me what to do, but I am never alone. I have a whole team of trainers that guide me when I need them. It doesn’t get any better than that. So why aren’t more people doing it? Eventually they will have to and the rest will have to compete with internet savvy people like stay-at-home Moms who are launching successful online businesses. It is an equal playing field for anyone willing to get out of old habits. Living and working remotely is not our future, it is now.

We want simple. We want to be happy, healthy, and abundant on our terms. Thousands of people are doing it. I am one of them, and when we can travel again, I am going to choose one of those really cool places in Portugal overlooking the water. I won’t be ‘away from work.’ In fact, everything will be operating just as it always has, online, generating income for me. I can’t imagine living any other way.
