Where To Live
No, I can not really tell you where to live. You have to make that decision.
I do not know anything about you. I do not know your likes and dislikes. So
what can I tell you about, "where to live"? I can give you hints on how
I found the place I wanted to live and you can see if that will work for you.
This site is not about specific places to live. It is about where you would
like to live. I want to get you thinking where you would like to live before
you leave this page BECAUSE you owe it to yourself.
HOME SWEET HOME
This site is about where to live that will give you the most happiness
you can get for the next "many" years of your life. Most people do not think
seriously about where to live. They live in a town, get a job in that town or
one nearby. They marry a local girl, eventually buy a house, have children and
HAPPINESS!! I am going to talk about my life and I am going to talk about
HAPPINESS. I will give you my thoughts on where to live. However, most
of all this will be about happiness more than where to live. If you try to please your self in this decision of where to live, you will find life does become happier.
Where to live. Your "Home Sweet Home". It should be somewhere you would
really like to be. Are you living in the heat of the dessert, the humidity of
the south, the cold of the north, or the smog of the city? Do you commute too
far to work? Are your children going to grow up in a safe neighborhood and attend
good schools? Picking where to live means thinking of about all of these things
I say, "pick where to live based on where you would like to live"! Have
you always dreamed of four distinct seasons with fall colors, white Christmases,
April showers that bring May flowers and summer on the beach. Why not do it?
Why not investigate the places that meet your desire and MOVE THERE!! Do you
like the mountains and fresh air? How about the dry heat of the desert or maybe
the California coast and living near the beach. JUST DO IT!
My story is a long one so I will not bore you will all the details, at least
not yet. I was forced into choosing a WONDERFUL PLACE TO LIVE.
I had no choice but to make a decision to move to my dream location. Maybe you
are not so "lucky". Maybe you will have to make this decision on your own. Where
to live for me was an easy decision.
In 1999 I was living up a remote California canyon. I was renting a tiny house
and storage building. I had a 4000 square foot storage building and an 800 square
foot house. I was happy. The rent was only $875 a month for both. The landlord
raised the rent to $1600 and took away 2000 feet of storage. I had to rent three
40 foot cargo storage container to put the stuff in. I had higher rent from
the landlord and also added rent for the containers. Where to live? Where to
My wife and I sat down and talked about it. Did we want to stay with a landlord
we did not like and who just raised our rent almost double or should we move.
MOVE! OK, lets get the paper and see what we can find. WAIT!!
If we could move anywhere we wanted, where would we really like to live?
We have visited the coast a few months before and living at the beach
was brought up as what we thought would be the ideal place to move to. Guess
what. We moved. We lived exactly one mile from the beach. It was cool. There
were no more biting flies. Instead of 12 miles to the grocery store, we could
walk to the nearest store, less than a block away. Our, "where to live"
question was answered.
OK, where would you like to live? The beach like we are. How about the
mountains? It does not matter. Pick your place and start planning on how you
could move there. Look into the cost of housing or the of rental housing. Investigate
year round weather. Get a scrap book and put articles, pictures, notes in it
to keep you motivated and interested. This is something you can do!
If you are single and unattached, WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY!! Move where you
would like to live now so when you fall in love and settle down you will already
have the dream location picked out. You will be living there.
Are you married and have children. You can still do this. It may take more planning,
more money in reserve, but YOU CAN DO IT!
Why do we live where we do not want to and settle for places we do not
like? 1000 reasons. Jobs, security, family, friends, fear of the unknown. Make
a pact with me today that at least you will look into this and tell me how it
comes out, whether you move or not. Maybe you will just find a lifetime vacation
spot instead of a new home.
My wife and I keep telling each other how happy we are to live on the coast.
We love it here. We love the ocean and all it means to us. We have lived
as close to the beach as five houses from the sand. Less than a block. Financial
circumstances have us 5 miles from the same beach right now, but things have
picked up and we have new plans for where we want to live.
So, you are thinking about what I am saying? It makes sense to you, but
you can not just up and move. What about a job? What about having the money
to do it?. How much income will you need before and after you make the move?
I am ready to retire on ONLY social security. Due to down sizing and the events
following that, I only have Social Security. It is not going to be enough to
live on for two for the rest of my life. So I am taking the bull by the horns
and doing something about it.
Where do I want to live? EVERY WHERE! You say, "that does not make sense".
Yes, it does. My wife and I want to move around the country in a motorhome.
Live one place a day, another a week and another 3 months. Staying on one place
only as long as we desire to.
Motorhoming around the country takes money. A bit more than Social Security
provides. I have the answer and it is the internet. Yes, right where you are
RIGHT NOW. Can I make a living on the internet. For a couple years I have been
convinced I could. In fact since October of 1998 I have had not had any other
income than the internet. I done well enough to live right at the beach. I have
had tight times that moved me off the beach. BUT still I am happier than I ever
was working for a boss. Also, I do not eat TUMS like candy anymore.
There are many ways to generate income that do not require a lot more education
or training. The internet offers solutions and you can find them with the research
tools available to you through search engines. However let me give you some
interesting ideas you can implement today and start on your way to more financial
freedom than you might otherwise have.
My first method of generating income on the internet was my own site,
selling surplus or used computer equipment and electronic test equipment. It
did not do all that well. Next I discovered Ebay. WOW!! Ebay took us from
dead broke to living up a canyon with our rent doubled to living at the beach.
You too can sell on Ebay. It is an easy way to make money. This is not about
how to sell on Ebay, so let me give you some recourses to look into for selling
Because I had a couple websites, I decided to put advertising on them and see
if I could make some money from other people’s ads on my site. When we hit
over $300 in a month from one website, I started getting excited. I did
one simple change to my websites. I added Google Adsense ads. It is a free program
and is easy to do. I was amazed at how my income started growing.
I introduced a friend to Google Adsense ads and he is doing better on his website
than I am. "WHOA"!! you say. You do not even have a web site and even
if you wanted one, you do not know how to build one. OR, maybe you know HTML
coding needed to build a website, but just have not seen a good reason to build
one. Well, if you would like to move to the place of your dreams and are not
sure about employment when you get there, look into internet income to help
you make a better living.
Below is a link to a FREE online or e-book you can download and learn
more about creating a website that will generate income for you too. Once you
get one website generating income could you possibly create another? I did.
I have three now and am getting ready to create two more. Am I smart? Am I an
expert? Not really. I have information I have learned during my life I would like
to share. Like this website and what you are reading right now. I have also
downloaded the free e-book I am recommending and found its information better
than any I used in the past.
Download this free e-book, learn what I am talking about and see if you too might
live where you want to instead of where you have to. You will need Adobe acrobat
reader to read the e-book. If you do not already have it you can get Acrobat
reader for FREE
Here is the link to your copy of the free e-book. Maybe
it will help you choose where to live
