It sounds like a great idea, right?
Escape the office, fire your boss and move to South East Asia.
Give up the cubicle for a desk by the beach and make money while relaxing beneath the coconut trees and enjoying all that the tropical lifestyle has to offer.
Scuba diving on Wednesday morning? Check.
Afternoon naps for as long as you please? Check.
Drink and party or wake up early and hit the gym? Check.
It’s simple – you CAN do this.
In fact, take a look at the picture to the right. That’s my office. I’m John, and I run the website at Badladz.
If you have watched the videos, you’ll know that there are business opportunities in the Philippines.
The problem is this – you can’t earn money like you can in the west. For most jobs, there are Filipinos who will work for a LOT less than you will. And given that they can sustain a lifestyle with less expense, they’ll beat you out of most jobs. You can forget about ordinary office jobs or becoming a labourer.
Did you know that labourers are lucky to make $5 a day?
So unless you think you can survive on $5 a day, it’s best to look for other opportunities. Let me jump straight to the point without fluffing around. The best way to make money in the Philippines is to start a business. You can start a brick-and-mortar business where you sell a physical product. That can work and we know people who are doing it.
But that isn’t your best option.
Making money online is your best option.
I know… it sounds like a scam, and if you’re not careful online, you’ll find yourself caught hook-line-and-sinker. But for the hustlers serious about success, there is a real opportunity for you to live and work in the Philippines. Here’s what you gotta do – find a way to earn money online and work from your laptop.
Throughout most of the Philippines, you can find a reliable internet connection. Once you get going, you’ll be fine.
In fact, Badladz is currently hosting the first Tropical MBA Program, a 2-week conference in the Philippines that aims to educate people on how to do just that. You can learn more at the official website here.
Here’s the gist of the program – Imagine 15 fledgling entrepreneurs, all motivated to start their own business online and work from anywhere. All 15 people come and stay at Badladz, meeting for seminars, presentations and of course, lots of fun Puerto Galera activities. After two weeks, they leave the resort with a clear action plan and a trajectory that puts them on the path to the success that they’re aiming for.
So if you want to start a business in the Philippines, you can. You just gotta find the way. You could sell vintage sunglasses online. You could sell digital photography courses. You could offer special training videos to people in your industry.
The options are limitless and the potential is there. If you ever wanna talk biz, come on down to Badladz and we can explain more about how to do it.
