I'm paying over $700 a month for a 10 Mbps connection. So don't complain too loudly

WOW! I didn't realize it was so high in Ecuador.

How to earn $1 million while traveling the world - Business Insider

I met a guy at SXSW who does nothing but create wordpress themes, has a few apps, and takes stock photos and sells them online. He makes $80k-$100k a month and spends 9-10 months out of the year traveling Asia and Europe.

When I read articles like this I question my life choices. I got no regrets with how things turned out, it just took longer to get where I am, but still...

US Bond Trader View Post
Part of me is jealous I must admit. It does depend on your type of trading though. I tried it for a stretch of about 8 months in the Philippines. Its a country where when you sign up for a broadband internet connection, like 3 Mbps, you connect and it is so slow that you run a speed test and find out it is only like 512 Kbps then when you call up to complain they say the plan is technically up to 3 Mbps so any speed below it is what you get even if it is deathly slow. In the end I was able to get an 8 Mbps fiber optic line but quite expensive, but includes cable tv, over $120 US dollars a month but while it is incredibly stable, I can't sign up to watch the manny pacquaio fights on pay per view twice a year, grrrr. I am back in Chicago now, but still have my house there where I can go for a retreat for a few months at a time. I am a US citizen so I am still on the hook for income tax.

Funny.... because I am jealous of you living in Chicago, my favorite town in US. Lived there for a month in 2010. Clean, friendly people, cute chicks, awesome waterfront, really liked the libraries... and of course you are close to the action.

Or perhaps more importantly, a sense of contentment or satisfaction derived from internal sources vs external.

You are absolutely right, Brian. Happiness or satisfaction is an inside job.

That's pretty sick.

I felt for quite some time now that it is easier to get paid for providing value than for taking a risk.

That was one of my primary motivations. It got me to get off my ass and make enough dough so I could live this way.

It's kind of funny, he actually discourages trading. But I guess that's advice for complete novices. Honestly, I'm not sure I'd suggest someone to trade who is a novice looking for a full-time income in 4 hours either.

I thought so in my business. That providing value was the best way to get paid. Then I realized that everything comes with some risk. And if I am gonna take risk I want to be paid for it, whether it is in business or trading.

Interesting thoughts... I was thinking about it as black and white but now I see the line isn't that clearly defined.

Also, everything that comes with risk provides value. I suppose it's a spectrum... but I would still argue it is easier to make money in ventures where the value you provide far outweighs the risk you take.
