The Next Chapter

It’s been awhile since the last post, and I want to share a little bit of information with my readers as to the reasons behind the delay, and why I’ve been taking so much time off from blogging.

First and foremost, the vast majority of my time has been spent finishing up contracts for clients in January and February, setting myself up for a great 2011. As of two weeks ago, I have my entire year’s worth of living expenses completely paid for, which means everything from here on out is pure profit. How, you ask, is that possible, to cover all of your expenses with only 6 weeks of work?

The answer to that question is somewhat complex, and is exactly the reason why I’ve been hard at work prepping the behind-the-scenes information that is the basis for the new-and-improved Marginal Boundaries, which is a brand name focused on educating the informed people of the world on how to live like a king in other countries, how to take advantage of medical tourism, why you should live in other countries, the tax advantages, the business advantages, the lowered cost of living, the higher standards of education for your kids, the numerous opportunities that exist in developing countries versus stagnant economies in the Western world where jobs are still impossible to find and progression is at a standstill, as well as numerous other variables tied into teaching people how to take a shoestring budget and turn it into a luxury lifestyle that most people think is only a dream. Believe me…I live this every day. I go to the beach when I want, I only spend a few hours a day working, I spend 3-4 hours every morning walking parks, sitting in cafes, talking to people, enjoying the local culture and exploring various places in the world, all while maintaining a “professional” existence. There is so much more to it than what I can explain in a few sentences here, which is exactly why the new brand will be coming out shortly.

My plans for March, April and May are quite simple. I’ll be revamping the Complete Writing Solutions website and brand, and will be selling informational products on how to use content writing to your advantage, how to make a minimum of $50 an hour using content mills (a feat I regularly achieve, and have been for over two years  now), while giving you an in-depth, step-by-step walkthrough of my own path, so you can get an idea of how I was able to transition into this career and go from a non-educated Midwestern bloke from Colorado who never finished high-school (let alone attend college) and ran a construction company for years, into a globe-trotting freelance professional who now writes travel guides and travel writing for a living, along with intermittent freelance projects on various topics and projects. The blog will begin to be updated on a regular basis again, and I am keeping my contract work to a minimum for the next three months while I finish revamping this site. In the meantime, Marginal Boundaries should be going live in the next 2 weeks (finally, after multiple delays due to people throwing work at me that I just couldn’t pass up because the money was so good). I just settled into a new apartment here in Cancun, with a three month contract before I head down to Bogotá, Columbia, and I only have three goals in mind: continue my Spanish lessons, revamp CWS, and relaunch Marginal Boundaries.

One of the most exciting things for me is the ability to share my personal story with others as an inspirations on the things you can achieve if you put your mind to them. An education is not necessary, simply the desire to succeed and the ability to be a free-thinking individual who is willing to explore all the options that this world of ours has available. If you can see past the propaganda, love living life to its fullest, and want the opportunity to take life by the horns and live it on your own terms, now is your chance. The world is your oyster, and there is absolutely no reason, no excuse, why you cannot be living like a king on your own time, at your own pace, without being beholden to anyone, much less an over-priced, over-taxed home country that sucks your soul and drains your savings account to the point you end up being 60 years old with barely a penny to your name and a life of indentured servitude to a system that never gave you anything other than 40+ hour work weeks and 2 weeks of vacation a year.

Get out there and live, people. Your time is now.
