When Economic Crises Hit, Expats and Entrepreneurs Thrive

When Tony Wagner, the Harvard education specialist, describes his job today, he says he’s “a translator between two hostile tribes” — the education world and the business world, the people who teach our kids and the people who give them jobs. Wagner’s argument in his book “Creating Innovators: The Making of Young People Who Will Change the World” is that our K-12 and college tracks are not consistently “adding the value and teaching the skills that matter most in the marketplace.

This is dangerous at a time when there is increasingly no such thing as a high-wage, middle-skilled job — the thing that sustained the middle class in the last generation. Now there is only a high-wage, high-skilled job. Every middle-class job today is being pulled up, out or down faster than ever. That is, it either requires more skill or can be done by more people around the world or is being buried — made obsolete — faster than ever. Which is why the goal of education today, argues Wagner, should not be to make every child “college ready” but “innovation ready” — ready to add value to whatever they do.

EducationToday,” Wagner said via e-mail, “because knowledge is available on every Internet-connected device, what you know matters far less than what you can do with what you know. The capacity to innovate — the ability to solve problems creatively or bring new possibilities to life — and skills like critical thinking, communication and collaboration are far more important than academic knowledge.”

Read the full article over at The New York Times, courtesy of Thomas L. Friedman. 

One of my personal favorite moments from the article was when the author, Friedman, discussed the current state of affairs. “My generation had it easy. We got to “find” a job. But, more than ever, our kids will have to ‘invent’ a job. (Fortunately, in today’s world, that’s easier and cheaper than ever before.) Sure, the lucky ones will find their first job, but, given the pace of change today, they will have to reinvent, re-engineer and reimagine that job much more often than their parents if they want to advance in it.”

In the age of free information, ignorance is a choice. The ability to innovate, to adapt, to evolve with the times, is crucial to your continued success on a global scale. While there are still a handful of brick-and-mortar examples that continue to hold steady (albeit in very specific, tight niches), the vast majority of jobs have moved into the digital era, which means they are available to anyone on a global basis. The above photo is accurate beyond a shadow of a doubt: information that you previously had to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to have access to is now available freely on the Internet, which means higher education is largely irrelevant in the modern era.

That’s not to say that there aren’t jobs which still require specialized knowledge. Dentistry, for example. Quantum physics. Neuroscience. But these are nothing more than a handful of degrees that require the use of a dedicated education system. The vast majority of other degrees (such as the world’s most over-marketed and least useful, the Masters of Business Administration) are available completely for free online.

Not only that, but there are jobs today which did not exist even as few as five years ago. Social media managers, for example. To this day, the vast majority of universities do not have a degree program for social media, nor do they have a university program for self-publishing books or blogging for a living or creating a YouTube channel and building up a brand. These are jobs which have been created out of the ether that is Virtual Reality, the digital era that we are now living in.

Automobiles. Airplanes. Telephone. Computers. Internet. WiFi. Crowd funding. Faster and faster. Onward and upward. Human ingenuity knows no bounds, for we are the children of the universe: infinite in our potential for expansion and growth.

Our understanding and growth have exponentially increased at every turn. Leaps and bounds are happening within a matter of months now, rather than decades apart. Just as the Mayans predicted with their endless cycles of compounded and sped-up cycles as things progressively begin to vibrate faster and faster and faster until we reached the end of the last era and entered into the endless possibility stage and moved into the great beyond, the infinite universe.

With the power of free information on a global scale, with global communication, comes the ability to advance the entire race forward at the same time. No more “my country versus your country”. No more nationalist beliefs holding people back from working side by side over a misguided notion that because someone was born somewhere else they are inferior. No more 99% versus 1%. No more reliance on a system of control telling you how to think, how to work, how to live. There is only the Human Experience as the entire planet works together to achieve the same goals.

We have the ability to create infinite realities merely through thought and will. To create something in a digital space and have that extend outwards into the physical realm. Blogs. Websites. YouTube videos. Digital eBooks and other products. We understand, finally, the symbiotic nature of it all, and the planet is moving away from capitalist and selfish systems of personal gratification and into a global community of sharing, networking and outward expansion and understanding.

IlliterateIn the words of Alvin Toffler, “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”

In short, those who cannot adapt to the times, those who refuse to evolve with the digital era, those who cannot comprehend the vastness of the universe and their own infinite potential, will be left behind.

Evolution does not wait for the weak, the slow, the ignorant. It is survival of the fittest, and only those who have the desire to educate themselves, to unplug from The Matrix, who will mature into the next stage of The Human Experience.

The only people suffering from the so-called “global crisis” are those who have put their faith in credit systems, in governments, in the so-called “higher education” system and their so-called “required” degrees. The only ones currently sitting around without any work and living third-world lives, even in first-world countries, are those who choose to be ignorant, such as this poor sap who went from a $75,000 a year job as an architect to making less than poverty-level income (according to U.S. standards) with the snap of a finger.

He has submitted more than 3,000 resumes in a period of three years, which have only generated a half-dozen interviews…and a mere $10,000 per year for his efforts, and yet despite all of this, despite thousands of hours of wasted time and energy, despite three years of watching his life savings drain away, despite the the fact that the jobs he once thrived on no longer exist, he still prefers to stay plugged into The Matrix and live within the illusion.

He cannot comprehend the changes the world is going through because he refuses to unplug, to wake up, to enlighten himself. He is, as Alvin Toffler described, one of the illiterate of the 21st century. A man living in the dark, choosing to remain ignorant when there is a world of free information at his fingertips, freely available and freely accessible to anyone, anywhere, regardless of language, birthplace, religion or color of skin.

We are living in a time of infinite possibilities. That is what the new era represents. A time of change. A time of growth. With our understanding of the universal truths, we realize that we don’t have to do things the way they have been done before. The credit system or the banking system or the so-called global crisis are nothing more than peripheral. Our focus is on the future, on the new way of doing things, on the global consciousness of the entire planet working towards common goals and expanding our knowledge of science and technology to unlock the rest of the mysteries of the universe.

Fabric of America

The Fabric of America

Posted by | Live Like a Local, Passive Income, Quality of Life, Social Media, Traveling Tips | 2 Comments

If you haven’t checked it out already, my friends over at Jets Like Taxis just went public with an amazing tour of the United States they are putting together for this spring/summer, called “The Fabric of America“.

The goal of the tour is to showcase the better elements of a country that is now hard to find much good to say about. They are undertaking a 6,000 mile road-trip to interview and promote on their blog the numerous mom and pop/local businesses/brick and mortar/independent artist/entrepreneur types who make up the most important elements of The American Dream: hard work, personal inspiration and a desire to work for their own rewards rather than be a wage slave for someone else.

I’ve personally donated $500 USD to the project, and I’ve known about it for the past few months and have been eagerly waiting for them to go public. Now that they have, I can finally share the information with the rest of you! And more importantly, make a personal request.

Ryan and Angela are a pair of travelers who have been traveling around the world writing about their experiences living in various destinations, such as Montenegro, Germany and Spain. Note that they aren’t backpackers or hostel-hoppers. They are immersion travelers who stay for at least a few months in a given destination, exploring the culture, the people, the food and the little things that make a place unique. They speak the local languages and work hard at integrating into the local societies as opposed to merely being the typical consumption-based tourists who backpack their way through and only experience the hot-air balloon rides, the snorkeling, the scuba diving, the all-inclusive resorts, the zip-lines and beyond.

Their blog posts are full of local stories about the local people. Their series on Montenegro was beyond inspirational; it was, in my mind, one of the best series of travel writing I’ve read in the past two years. Which is exactly why I felt comfortable donating five hundred bucks: they are great writers who focus on the things I want to know about. Mainly, the local businesses, people, culture and the heart of the countries they visit, as opposed to 99% of the travel bloggers out there who only ever post photos of their hotel rooms and adventure activities and never actually experience a country or its culture or its people.

Right now, they are looking for more sponsors, but not merely for money! They are far more interested in services (as detailed in their blog post), such as hotel rooms or private accommodations. While funds are great, maybe you work for a hotel chain. Maybe your uncle works for a rental car company. Maybe your camera or mobile company wants abusive road tests and reviews of its products. Whatever it may be, you can help!

They have a wide variety of options and sponsorship packages available, and are willing to work with people to create custom packages that benefit everyone in the greatest respect. If you – or someone you know – might be interested, they have an awards package document available upon request. Plus, they have an online merchandise store where you can pick up t-shirts and tote bags to help support their amazing journey.

I’ve personally read through the sponsorship package several times and there are a lot of great rewards for becoming a sponsor, ranging from logo placement to backlinks from the blog posts and beyond. I highly recommend reading through their blog post and if you can find a way to help them make this the best journey possible, go for it!

After all, at the end of the day it’s the independent workers who deserve the just rewards, not the corporations and corrupt governments that have driven the world into the current global state of financial affairs, and by helping Ryan and Angela interview and showcase these businesses and individuals on their way through the U.S., you can help highlight the best elements of being independent entrepreneurs.

Read the full blog post here!

Support their journey by purchasing some of their wicked t-shirts and tote-bags, or by donating money to their “feed the doggie” fund at their online store!

Destination Freedom by Marginal Boundaries

The Power of Change

Posted by | Destination Freedom, Live Like a Local, Passive Income, Quality of Life, Social Media, Traveling Tips | 4 Comments

Independent success is related to one factor above anything else: conscious decision. People choose whether or not they succeed in life. People choose whether or not to pursue a life of full-time travel, whether or not to explore the world around them from a debt-free standpoint, and whether or not they want to work for someone else as a wage slave as opposed to an independent entity. People choose whether or not to live a life plugged into The Matrix.

The basis of our Destination Freedom retreat was to take a small team of individuals through an intense brand building, social media, blogging and Spanish language immersion program and help them build their businesses up to the point where they could either establish a life of location independence in another country, travel full time, or simply beef up their existing monthly draw with passive income from an online brand.

We are just now finishing up the third week of the program, and our retreat members are already beginning to see the first fruits of their labor after getting their websites up and going and starting to dip their toes into the travel lifestyle here in Cancun, Mexico while at the same time learning some of the basics of social media. The really good stuff is still coming down the pipeline in April and May (we still have two months to go!), and we are taking off this Friday to indulge in a week-long team-building tour courtesy of Snail Adventures here in the Yucatan Peninsula.

In the meantime, I thought it was time to introduce you to the team on a more formal basis and give you a chance to take a look at their websites, and hear some of the success stories from their first few weeks here in Cancun working alongside Cris and I.

Nomadic Retiree

Dave is a pensioner who came down to Mexico looking for a way to build up an additional income to help give him something more of a livable flow of money in compared to the minimal amount he pulls in from his pension. Dave could be considered the poster child for what we are doing with Destination Freedom, as he had previous not worked in an online capacity in the past and had only dabbled in social media for friends and family.

His brand and persona is Nomadic Retiree, a website and blog dedicated to immersion travel and pursuing a nomadic lifestyle while as a retiree, proving that you don’t have to be a spring chicken in order to enjoy the benefits of full-time travel and location independence. He is providing insight into the nomadic lifestyle from the perspective of a pensioner, and alongside that is building up his social media management skills with the intent to both manage social media pages for clients as well as to establish a rental agency in The Riviera Maya helping find rental properties for long-term expats and retirees like himself.

He’s already lined up his first client through Marginal Boundaries (I receive rental queries on a regular basis and I’m shuffling those requests through Dave), and as he continues to master the Spanish language he’ll be working with more landlords and property owners here in Cancun and The Riviera Maya to find properties for other retirees and pensioners  as well as adventurers, who are looking to come down here and live. If you are thinking of spending more than a few weeks here in the area and want to find a local apartment, house or condo with local rates (not tourist, vacation rates), this is the guy to go to, since he’ll be lining up rental properties for others with local landlords in Spanish.

Absolutely Pure

Sophie decided to come to the Destination Freedom retreat to help boost her existing sales and leverage social media with her existing brand, Absolutely Pure. A website dedicated to all-natural beauty and health products, Sophie’s passion is in providing absolutely pure skincare and cosmetic products to a global pool of clients. She has 10 years of experience with her website, but she wanted to learn more about social media as well as get some Spanish language under her belt to move further into the Latin American market with her products.

Along with showing people the danger of “the nasties”, all of those chemical additives that many of the so-called “natural” skincare companies are using in their products, Sophie carries her own line of specially-designed products, such as shampoos and face creams, and is currently working on creating even more of her own unique line of products. If you are someone who values your health and are conscious of the things you put into your body as well as on your skin, you should absolutely give her site a look and pick up some of her products.

In her first few weeks here at the program, Sophie has seen some record-breaking social media numbers at her Facebook page (which we’ve been sharing in screenshots), and we haven’t even started to get into the really interesting stuff over at Google+ or with the other social media pages yet!

 

 

Nomadic Momma

A single mother of two, Jen came down to Cancun to attend the retreat with the specific intent of providing her children with a better life. Trying to work two jobs to make ends meet back in the States wasn’t giving her enough income to provide her children with the life she wanted, so she made a conscious choice to go beyond simply applying for another job and “hoping” that she would find something with a better rate of pay. Instead, she took the plunge into the deep end: unplugging from The System and starting her own online business and brand.

Nomadic Momma is the end result. It’s a travel blog dedicated to her exploration of The Riviera Maya (and beyond), while at the same time providing her with an online platform to promote her virtual assistant skills and bring in clients as well as eventually establish a passive income through a book she is currently working on writing. Marginal Boundaries readers are already familiar with Jen as she is the guest author of 10 Ways to Save $25,000 or More for Full-Time Travel as well as  14 Influential Bloggers for Life Hacking.

Her research and personal assistant skills are impeccable, and she has already begun to see success with her blog and we are only three weeks into our three-month-long retreat. Not only has she been doing personal assistant work for me as a guest blogger, but she’s also lined up half a dozen of her own clients working on some basic WordPress design work, transcriptions for a couple of Indian clients, and another website design partnership to help put together WordPress sites.

 

 

Consciousness By Design

The most powerful aspect of what the retreat members are doing is using the power of consciousness to create their own realities. Whether it’s a life of full-time travel, location independence as immersion travel expats, or simply beefing up an existing salary with a passive income stream to provide their family with a better life, this is the power of social media, freedom of information, the Internet and the amazing times we are living in.

These are three individuals who have made a conscious decision to break out of the mold, to establish their own independence, their own creative and financial freedom, and to live life the way they want to live, rather than by according to the “rules of society”. When you can leverage the power of globalization, secondary languages and the Internet for your own independence, there is absolutely no need to waste money on a worthless degree or spend 40+ years of your life working as a wage slave for someone else’s benefit.

There’s a great big world out there to explore, and these three people have made the decision to see it first-hand with their own eyes.

Destination Freedom is a three-month-long social media, brand building, blogging, passive income and Spanish language immersion program offered by Marginal Boundaries at their headquarters in Cancun, Mexico. The course is designed by T.W. Anderson and Cristina Barrios, and is a combination of information found within The Expat Guidebook and the forthcoming book, Beyond Boundaries – The Social Revolution.

Registration is now open for the Summer retreat (July, August and September of 2013) with limited positions available, and the Winter retreat takes place in November, December and January. 

For more information on the Spring 2013 retreat, and to see what the members are experiencing while here in Cancun, check out our Facebook and Google+ photo albums, as well as follow along at the YouTube channel.

Blogging

14 Influential Bloggers For Life Hacking

Posted by | Live Like a Local, Passive Income, Quality of Life, Social Media, Traveling Tips | 7 Comments

The following is a guest post by Destination Freedom member Jen Welzel. For more information on our three-month long social media, passive income, brand building, blogging and Spanish language immersion retreat going on in The Riviera Maya, check out the photo albums on our Google+ or Facebook pages or the ongoing videos at our YouTube channel.

Life Altering Encounters

Chris Guillebeau – Author of two best sellers (The Art of Non-Conformity and The $100 Startup) and a highly successful blog (AONC), Chris set out to change the world, and in my opinion, is doing so one mindset at a time.  I picked up his book last year when I was searching for something more, and his words literally changed my life.  He shares his personal story about how he went from working in the Fed Ex Hub to deciding to travel to every country in the world.

The major theme I took from his books was you don’t have to live your life according to “The American Dream”.  If you have another dream, go for it with every ounce of your being!  The only prerequisite is that you have passion for the things you are pursuing.  Through his books, I have discovered passions hidden deep within my soul that I thought were forever lost, such as writing, researching and connecting.  I have met Chris personally, and not only is he kind, he really wants to help.  And he has helped me in more ways than one.  I highly recommend his products and articles to anyone that is looking for something different in their lives.  Along with books and unconventional guides, he also has a member site called Travel Hacking Cartel where tells you step by step how to get thousands of airline miles per year.

James Clear – This is a newer blog that I have recently discovered, The Art of Becoming Better.  It’s a blog about setting and achieving your goals, but what sets James apart from the 100’s of other goal writers out there, is he breaks the art of setting goals into an easy to understand process that you can use anywhere in your life.  You can find his formula on his post, How To Consistently Accomplish Your Goals.

I am a habitual goal setter, but I never get anywhere because my goals seem so un-achievable!  With James’ simple formula, I have found the confidence I need to reevaluate my goals and actually achieve the things that are important to me.  He wrote another article earlier about the difference between Performance/Appearance based Goals and Identity Based Goals.  For the first time ever, setting goals finally made sense!  I’ve never heard them explained the way James explained them, and suddenly I understood the mechanics of a goal.  You can check out that article here: Identity-Based Habits: How to Actually Stick to your Goals this Year.

T.W. Anderson – During my search for living a location independent lifestyle, I came across an article by Tim at Marginal Boundaries.  The article talked about living in different countries as a local (Live Like a Local 101).  This resonated with me.  Living like a local… that is genius!  He went on to show what his expenses were, and they were far less than what I was paying in America, so I was definitely intrigued and I subscribed to his mailing list.

Shortly thereafter, I got a newsletter about a retreat he was putting on.  Destination Freedom was exactly what I was looking for in my new life plan.  I jumped on it, and as of this publication (March 12th, 2013), I’m in Cancun at the retreat, where we are working on building our brands, social media outreach networking, passive income, Spanish language, friendships and fun!  If anyone else is interested in help setting up their online businesses so you too can have the freedom to travel or do whatever else you are passionate about, Tim has spaces open for his summer and winter retreats, however his winter retreat is almost full!  Contact him for more details.

Justin Mussler – I started following Justin from The Great Family Escape before they left for their big trip, and it was really inspiring seeing his whole family prepare to leave.  It gave me the confidence I needed to believe that I could leave with my kids, and it wouldn’t be as hard as I had imagined.  When I first started on my blog, I couldn’t get past what I should write for my first post and he gave me some great, yet simple, advice.  “Just start writing!!”  So I did.  I love how the traveling family community is so close nit and supportive of new comers.

Favorite for Resources and Information

Derek Baron – AKA Wandering Earl is a new (to me) blog that I found recently which soon will probably graduate to Inspiring Reads list.  I have yet to break into all the wealth he has on his site, but one of my favorite posts so far is 42 Ways you Can Make Money and Travel the World.

I have read a lot of these posts by different people, and so far his is the most creative.  I am already in the process of earning money through freelance work, but a few new ideas I found on this post that i want to look into are:  Chair Massages at Hostels (I used to be a licensed massage therapist, so why not?!), Bartending, and my favorite is Editing English Signs/Menus!  One of the things I really love about Derek is he is very knowledgeable about local cultures and customs, and he is a big supporter of local economies.

I definitely recommend you read his kidnapping post, (Thank you to the Militant Who Stole My Car!).  He had me laughing uncontrollably.  And if you want to join me on one of his tours to India in September and October or his tour to Romania in June, here are the details: Announcing More “Wandering Earl Tours” for 2013!

Nora Dunn –  If I ever have questions about finances on the road or the logistics of travel, I go to Nora’s site, The Professional Hobo.  Her posts are fun and easy to read and understand.  In case you have that nagging feeling in your gut that you might have forgotten something, head over to her resources page, and you’re bound to find something you missed!

Annie Andre –  The reason Annie from Practical Adventurology really caught my eye was because she posted a blog article about having to petition the court to live in Paris for a year with her kids.  I am going to have to embark on a similar journey since I share custody of my son with his dad.  So far, she is THE ONLY single parent I have found that was able to travel with joint custody… so hopefully I will be joining her ranks!  You can read about her journey here: How to Travel or Live Abroad with Kids when you Ex says NO!

Tim Ferriss – I am just starting to read Tim’s book 4-Hour Workweek, and so far it’s great.  I’ve seen a few videos about Tim and the life he leads, please sign me up!  I am not great at time management and putting my energy towards the most productive things, but Tim is.  He has dozens of case studies, and the best thing is, he tries everything on himself first.  Then he shares it with his readers.

Best Lists Ever!

I love lists, and I love packing lists even more!  Here are a few different lists that I have come across that are my favorite.

Devon Mills – Devon from Answering Oliver has a detailed packing list, down to the exact packing devices she used.  I ended up buying the same pack as her because I loved all of the pictures.  Her blog is very heartfelt and honest.  I loved reading about her journey from leaving her job, to her travels overseas, to her realization that she didn’t want to travel long term.  Short term travel suits her better, and I respect her honesty.

Alex Jimenez – Alex runs a blog called Travel Fashion Girl, and if you ask me, she couldn’t have picked a more perfect niche!!  I am completely fashion illiterate, and she makes packing fashionably as easy as learning the ABCs.  I plan on using her London Packing List for my upcoming trip in July.

Erin McNeaney – Erin and her partner Simon run the blog, Never Ending Voyage.  They are digital nomads and live on the road.  This is one of my favorite informative blogs.  They have practical advice, good writing, great ideas.  Simon is an iOs developer, and they have developed an app for travelers called Trail Wallet.  Unfortunately, they don’t have an android version, but I think I should approach them about creating my own!  They do however have an extensive, awesome packing list.  They travel the world full time with 1 carry on bag each.  That is impressive!

Excellent Marketing Blogs

Corbett Barr – Think Traffic is all about building a profitable audience for your site.  I first learned about him when I came across a post about real writing (33 Things I’ve Never Told You or How To Re-Introduce Yourself and Kick Your Watered-Down Self in the Ass).  I was having a difficult time thinking of content to write in my blog and this was a nice catalyst.

Glen Allsop – Glen with ViperChill releases content that is well worth the signup!  One of his specialties is Niche ideas that he doesn’t have time for, and I think it’s ingenious.  You can sign up for Cloud Niche to get in on the goodies.

Pat Flynn – Pat runs Smart Passive Income, one of the leading passive income websites on the web to-date. His entire website is dedicated to helping people get off the ground with their passive income projects, and he has a ton of social media tips as well. From his Be Everywhere post talking about the importance of having multiple networks to his Passive Income 101 section, there are few people out there who are as giving with their information (and income reports) as Pat.

Marginal Boundaries Destination Freedom

A Riviera Maya Adventure

Posted by | 30 Ways in 30 Days, Live Like a Local, Mexico, Passive Income, Quality of Life, Social Media, Traveling Tips | No Comments

We are hip-deep in the Spring Destination Freedom retreat. If you haven’t been paying attention to the Facebook and Google+ pages or the YouTube channel, there have been plenty of photos + videos going up of the classes.  And things aren’t slowing down here!

Not only have we been busy getting everyone’s brands built up (the next two weeks are specifically dedicated to content creation at their websites + interviews coming to the YouTube channel), but Wandering Earl guest-spoke for a couple of nights, and we have a group dinner out with him and his tour in Playa del Carmen this evening, along with foXnoMad, since he’s helping Earl with his Mexico tour.

While the presentation for the Summer Destination Freedom event is coming down the pipeline later this week (early access for our loyal newsletter subscribers before we go public at the end of March), we also have a special tour I’d like to announce to the Marginal Boundaries community.

In June, in between the Spring and Summer Destination Freedom retreats, we are putting together an 8 day/8 night Riviera Maya adventure tour for those of you who want to come down to Mexico and hang out with Cris and myself while we take people around some of the local hangouts where we live.

For more information, check out the photos below, and if you think you might be interested in coming, send us an email at frontdesk@marginalboundaries.com.
