As I have mentioned in previous posts we moved to Mexico to get closer to United States as we set-up some different streams of passive income that are dependent on the US market. We want to be transparent in our set-ups and lessons learned as we move forward hoping that we can help someone else lay a blueprint for their own success. Read more
Mexico City also known as CDMX – Ciudad de Mexico (sounds bad ass right!?!) has always been on my must-visit list! It’s brimming with rich history, beautiful architecture, and vibrant, urban neighborhoods. The capital city of Mexico is a bustling metropolis and we were excited to dip ourselves in the culture. We spent 5 days and 4 nights in CDMX, mixing our time with a few tourists activities and an open agenda. Here’s what we enjoyed in Ciudad de Mexico….Mexico City! Read more
So, if you have been following our story you know that we designed a plan to develop 3-5 revenue streams that can all be worked remotely and that have a low barrier of entry. The passive income stream that we are stoking is the beginning of our online- travel shop. We rolled out the essence of our shop on Etsy with a larger vision of opening an actual Nomadic Wander Travel Shop after we have banked the capital from the Etsy shop. Etsy was a no-brainer for us. Etsy is a market place that is full of eager, ready-to-purchase consumers. You are in control of your product, how it is viewed and the price that you sell it for. Read more
We celebrated Day of the Dead in Mexico City, MX this year and we had a great time. The entire city participated. There were marches, parades and festivals everywhere, the vibe was outgoing and cool. We also watched Mexican children celebrating Halloween in the streets of Mexico City on November 1st. I found this the most interesting. Children dressed up in costumes from the traditional Dia de los Muertos costumes and would walk up to everyone on the street asking for candy… and people would have candy to give them! Read more
Apart from our Families, Friends and Bills we have no anchors in the U.S. We love it like that. I wish we could just float *inserts Schoolboy Q’s Floating lyrics* (Might turn into a ghost, bum bitch, yes I’m floating…). Extra is not our style. In fact we are minimalists in our approach to seeing the world but …. we got bills to pay to keep our businesses floating and to keep the credit scores looking right so we cannot totally detach ourselves. That said, we do not have a U. S. phone number or address and this creates some problems when it comes to paying our bills from outside of the country. Here is a short list of things you need in order to pay your bills while out of the country. Read more
- Dope laid back music
- Strong WiFi
- Comfortable seating
- Great climate control
- Location, location, location
We love cafe’ng. We usually set up a remote office once we find “the right cafes.” It is a whole mood with us. We work our VIPKid classes, get off of work, hit the gym, clean up, and find the perfect cafe to work out of for the day. It really works for us. It hasn’t been working for our waistline but we love the vibe and the people that we meet.
Finding #thatcafe, the one that is comfortable and an all out experience to go to is one those things that we are always doing.
What’s and where’s your favorite cafe? Let us know. We’ll list ours in the next blog “International Cafe” so stay tuned!
Our VIPKID story started with us wanting to be liberated from our desks, brick and mortar buildings. We wanted to shift over into a location independent lifestyle! We had just married and I relocated to my husband’s home state of Michigan in the winter of 2016. I left my previous job behind, in Florida, after six years and looked forward to honeymooning and hibernating. It was nice not working for a month or two, but it quickly got boring. None of my family or friends lived in Michigan, and I found myself lacking in ways to occupy my time. So I started to look for a job I could do remotely. VIPKID popped up on my radar and was a perfect fit for me to continue retreating from the unfamiliar winter harshness. Read more
