You don’t always need a long list of reasons to move overseas.
Here’s Tom’s story:
Tom lives in the US. He hates his job and the drudgery of his 9-5 life.
He wakes up…gets ready for work…goes to work…works…comes home from work…has dinner in front of the TV…goes to bed…wakes up…gets ready for work…
He needs the job to afford his house payments.
He doesn’t like his house, but it was the only one he could find near his job.
So Tom lives in a house that he doesn’t like so that he can be near a job that he hates so that he can afford a house that he doesn’t like and have a life that’s getting him down…
What happened next?
Tom quit his job, sold his house and moved overseas.
He found a spot where the property was cheap and lattes no longer cost $4.
He became a freelancer and worked remotely.
He was earning less money. But because of his new, lower cost of living, he was netting more.
Tom had just got a raise.
And by deciding to opt out of a 9-5 lifestyle he was enjoying life more.
Sometimes the reason to move overseas is simple: Tom hated his job and wanted to escape.
