My girlfriend and I are really getting tired. Very tired. We both have good paying jobs but we feel our souls being sucked out of us because it's not that we hate our jobs, but rather don't like being forced to work and never see eachother. We don't feel that being rich in life with materials, money etc. is important, but rather simply having enough money so we can be with eachother more and do the things we like to do. We've both hit a major wall, and need to do something within the next few years at least, so we need an exit strategy. Being child free and commitment free (except for our jobs) we can pretty much do anything that we want right now, but unfortunately have no idea what we want. My idea was to move to south america, probably Costa Rica and enjoy the low cost of living, good healthcare, tropical climate, and living a pure life without any of the rat race. We have some savings, but not enough to sustain us into old age (mid life now). So presently my thoughts are to make some income with blogging. Does anyone here have any experience with this, or other means of generating passive income streams? Looks like alot of videos on youtube show that it is possible but I do have some concerns about scams. But it seems like by shooting some short videos, creating a blog, writing articles, etc. can create some decent commissions to allow sustainability. Was thinking maybe a weed/vaporizer blog, doing reviews on new products, discussing and showcasing strains, etc. But i'm assuming this is over saturated? What about podcasts? There HAS to be a way to make money online and from home. I'm not afraid of the work, but it would be alot more tolerable from home and with my loved ones. Just trying to think of ways of making my hobby a job that allows me to live somewhat comfortably. Any thoughts or advice is appreciated! Life is too short to live like a slave. thanks!
