A lot of people tell me that they would love to move to the Philippines, but they don’t have enough money to support themselves, and thus cannot move. There are some very common sayings about this subject. First, a lot of people will tell you that it is impossible to earn any decent amount of money in the Philippines. Another thing that you hear is a joke – “how can you make a small fortune in the Philippines? By bringing a large fortune with you!”
Well, I am here to tell you that both of these statements are 100% incorrect. I know, because I do quite well here, thank you. I have been living in the Philippines for nearly a decade now, and to be frank and honest, I earn more money now than I ever earned when I lived in the USA. They say that the USA is the “land of opportunity.” Maybe it is. But, I can assure you that there are a ton of opportunities here too. And, the type of opporunities that you find here don’t require an account at Fort Knox to finance. I have started many, many businesses here for under $100, and some have paid off quite well. I can think of none that didn’t earn me a few Pesos. I have one business here that I started for about $50, and a month’s worth of work that I have earned well over $500,000 from. That’s not bad. You can do it too.
How can you do it? What do you need to start? Well, you need the ability to “think outside the box” and to try hard. You need to stop listening to all the naysayers who say that it is impossible. You need to have a positive attitude. You need to persevere, and not give up too easily. Basically, if you want to do it, you can. I know, because I did it many times over. I am still doing it today.
One thing I recommend is that if you want to earn money while living in the Philippines, you should read my Virtual Earner blog, which tells you ideas on how to make money online. It’s free to read the site, and I believe that you can use it to help you toward your goal of being able to live in the Philippines, while earning plenty of money to enjoy a nice lifestyle.
Another thing I recommend is that you get my book, “49 Ways to make a living in the Philippines.” This book offers you 49 different viable ideas that will have you earning money when you live here. Heck, the truth is that most of the ideas in the book will work no matter where you live.
Don’t get caught in the trap of thinking you need a job. You don’t. You don’t want a job if you want to make real money. You can do it, just try!
