I alluded this in another thread, but I may have to move to another country within the year to be with my partner.
If I move there, I can't really find another "career"-type job (for all intents and purposes we'll call this place a 2nd world country). I'd have to find some kind of gig that involves telecommuting/freelancing/working from home.
This is where the ingenuity and resourcefulness of the ERE community comes in - any ideas on how I can net a minimum of $30k a year for the next 3 years (I budgeted $90k of my ERE principle coming from salary saved in 2012-2015) with nothing more than a laptop and the calm sounds of the ocean?
Note: I'll be helping the Mister expand and run his tourist business, which should do decently in a year or two...but I think it's *really* important to have/make my own money, so ERE is still GAME ON for me.
So far I have:
-Suck it up and just run the Mister's business, grow it fairly aggressively
-Invest in our friend's surf school, it has the potential to expand, in which case there'd be profit sharing
-Learn professional-level website design (I'd have to take some classes) and freelance
-Somehow convince my current job to let me freelance (with my position it's possible, but flextime/telecommuting is not in our company culture)
-Break up with the Mister (kidding! knock on wood!)
Any more ideas?
