Happy Happy New Year

January 5, 2014 in Internet Marketing Lifestyle

Happy New Year or ‘Suk san wan pii mai’ to all our lovely Thai readers.

We just got back from a weeks holiday in paradise and I wanted to write a blog to round up last year and look at the future. 2013 was quite a year both professionally and personally for me. I love to travel and was fortunate to visit many beautiful Thai islands for mini breaks like my favorite Koh Chang, and Koh Samet as well as new places like Koh Si Chang, Koh Tao and Ko Nang Yuan. I also had longer trips combining business with pleasure in the UK, Malaysia, Bali, Laos and Australia.

Happy New Year Living the DreamRunning a business from my Mac Book and sometime only my Galaxy S4 smartphone gives me so much freedom even I sometimes have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming.

One of the benefits of traveling is it opens you up to a new way of thinking. I enjoy dropping in and experiencing strange new worlds and cultures. There is a lot to learn from people who have had a totally different education, life experiences, challenges and obstacles to overcome. But the one universal unifying thing that I’ve noticed that binds us all together is we are all searching for something that makes us happy.

This year my happiness levels rose to a new high when I first met my girlfriend. I used to travel alone but it’s more fun sharing those beautiful and romantic sunsets with someone you love than taking that ‘selfie’ of ‘the moment’!

Business has also grown experientially this year after flying back to the UK in April and breaking up ‘the partnership’. Now I’m the CEO and back in charge of what I set out to do with my company before I brought a partner on board. This ‘split’ was traumatic at the time but has proved to be the most positive experience of the year. I would advice anyone in business to stick to his or her gut instinct, if it doesn’t feel right, do something about it before the negativity sets in.

Due to my new found happiness, I’ve been posting a lot more photos online from exotic locations and a client recently asked me ‘How does one get a life like yours? The truth is it’s quite easy to get a life like mine. I really am ‘Joe Schmoe’. Even though I’m seen in beautiful places with a beautiful partner, the reality is it cost me less than half the price to live this life than it did when I lived in London. I also have very limited overheads when it comes to an office and staffing. The perceived cost of ‘living the dream’ of my Internet marketing Lifestyle and the reality are two very different things.

With that being said, an old friend reached out to me a couple of days ago, as he wants to escape the rat race and start a new life in Thailand. We are going to catch up on Skype later today and go through the options. Shortly I will be writing a guide to ‘Living in Thailand’ and lay out from my personal experience what you need to do and more importantly what not to do.

Another high point for 2013 (well two actually) was meeting one of my oldest clients and collaborators personally. The first was ‘Dr. P’ from Los Angeles USA who decided to make Thailand her winter vacation with her husband and the second was my main man for graphics and art direction from Pakistan who actually joined my friends and I for my birthday dinner. The Internet has been instrument in allowing us to work new business models that were not available to us ten years ago and it still amazes me the global/local connections we can freely make today from all corners of the globe.

I also started sponsoring a bright young man in northern Thailand and implemented a Good 2 Give policy for the company. I want to expand on this and help even more disadvantage youngsters and give them the confidence and ability to change their lives for the better through education and travel.

So although last year was simply amazing, I know 2014 has the potential to be even better.  The only way I can do that is by delivering more happiness to my clients and building the business by adding more services. This has been my vision and this year it will come to fruition.

What were your highlights of last year and your ambitions for 2014, I’d love to know. Share them with us in the comments section below and have a beautiful and prosperous new year!

Whistle blower Edward Snowden, my ‘Man of the Year’ opened a huge can of worms this year exposing the NSA for mass snooping by the American government amongst other things. Although I’m online every day and use multiple social networks I firmly believe in privacy. I’ll write another blog post in the near future and explore the options available to you to protect yourself. Be safe!

Freedom

February 2, 2013 in Internet Marketing Lifestyle

Internet Marketing Lifestyle=FreedomFreedom, what does the word mean to you? For me freedom is the biggest motivational factor that gets me up in the morning eager to experience a brand new day full of endless possibilities. Freedom for me is a value I hold above all others.

I set my business up with freedom built into it. What I mean by this is when I was looking to start a new company it had to give me the flexibility to live and work where I want and when I want. Of course we are living in a golden age of communication that allows us to do just that. A privilege not afforded to my parents or even to us even 5 years ago. Such is the speed of new technologies available to us.

Today I run a successful local search marketing company and makes three figures a year. I could make a lot more but then it would be like a ‘proper’ job and who wants one of those? Not me Sir! I refuse to grow up and instead live a life many only dream off. I live in Asia by choice having left the cold, grey city of London behind over two years ago.

Today I’m writing this blog post from my smartphone (Galaxy S3) with a WordPress app while sat in The Geographic cafe in Malaka, Malaysia. If you ever find or loose yourself here try the sour plum drink. Its got to be the most refreshing and healthy drink you can have in this heat!

In the next few days I will travel back up to the amazing Malaysian capital city of Kuala Lumpa before flying back to Bangkok Thailand a few days later. Then we’ve planned a weekend at the exclusive Royal Cliff Hotel in Pattaya. All the time I’m I’m traveling and experiencing new cultures, meeting interesting people and seeing the wonders this world has to offer us, Im in total contact with my clients, virtual staff and associates and of course making money.

I tell you all this not to brag but to open your mind to your own possibilities of a freer lifestyle only the Internet can bring. Let’s face it, if I can do it, so can YOU!

If you value your freedom and want to earn money from home, by working from the beach a few hours a day or traveling on paths less traveled you need to start investing in your future and learn Internet marketing strategies that really work.

Benefits of the Internet Marketing Lifestyle

An Internet marketing lifestyle will free you from the modern slavery we are all born and conditioned to live in. You leave school with a limited knowledge and a one world view. You go to university and leave with a huge debt. You get a job if you are lucky (depends how you look at it) but never earn enough or have the time to enjoy traveling, your hobbies, write that book or spend time with your family. You get more into debt living in a house the bank owns, maybe drive a car the bank owns or even have to take a second job to support your family. Sound familiar? Working for ‘the man’ you are trapped as a slave wage trading hours for dollars.
Its time to break free and enjoy your freedom, but how do you start and begin to learn the knowledge that you can build into a successful and rewarding business helping others on the way?

Come back to this site and read how I built a business up from ground zero that in just a few short years allows me to live the dream. Of course I made many mistakes on the way and learned by sheer bloody mindedness. You will be able to learn from my mistakes and my successes and have a business up and running in a matter of months so you too will be able to start living your own Internet marketing lifestyle.
