This article really has two intended audience segments.
The first is that segment of all backgrounds and citizenships who continually pine for a way to earn a living that is independent of where they live … in many cases so that they can move to/live in the Philippines instead of where they live now.
The second group is Filipinos with similar desires and goals?
Why would I separate the Filipino readers from the larger group? Am I some sort of racist? Well, not really, but I’m a realist.
In the nearly 10 years now that I have been working directly with people who want to make their home in the Philippines I have encountered about every sort of argumentative naysayer known to man … but no one except a Filipino has ever told me, “There’s no opportunity in the Philippines”.
So if you are the garden variety “Doubting Thomas’ and just want to tell me I am wrong because opportunities to earn a living online just don’t exist … well so be it. The fact that there is plenty evidence, including me, who prove you wrong will never change your mind. Perhaps the next article will be more to your liking.
But if you are one of those convinced there is no opportunity here in the Philippines, or even worse convinced as many of my Filipino relatives and friends seem to be, that Americans seem to possess some sort of in-built talent that allows them to take advantage of opportunities while Filipinos are damned to always come in second best, perhaps you will like reading this:

You might also enjoy a glance at these sites: House on a Hill, Carl Ocab, YugaTech and probably about who knows how many thousand more I have read over the past few years. What’s unique about them? Several things.
First, they all provide something of value … Connie’s erudite opinions, Carl’s page one advice, Yuga’s comprehensive market news, etc.
Second, every one of them is written by a Filipino who knows what s/he is doing and who competes, successfully with the rest of the world, “heads up”.
What about you? Is this your day to “believe” the evidence that is right in front of you, or is it yet another day to hang back, wait, and be sure everything is right before you make a move?
