For all Entrepreneurs – You can add a little spice to your life by running your online business from just about anywhere in the Philippines. Wouldn’t it be nice to take your laptop out to one of the many beach resorts on our 7107 beautiful tropical islands, sit back watch the waves roll in, the kids playing in the sand while you are doing your online business. Make your office wherever you end up for the day. Run the entire business online using just a laptop, the totally paperless roaming office. Internet speeds and up-time are improving in most cities in the Philippines with speeds up to 10 Mbps in some cities which is adequate for most any online work. Most hotels, restaurants, and resorts have free Wi-Fi. I run this blog on 3Mbps and it is doing fine, we do have 10Mbps offered here but for now my cheaper 1,900 Peso 3Mbps connection is sufficient for web programming.
Consider this, many of the beach resorts here offer very inexpensive monthly rentals for beach cottages allowing you to stay on a semi-permanent to permanent basis. Use one location as a base of operations while you travel around the country. Often these rental rates are from 5000 to 10000 pesos per month or around $120 to $240 per month. And there are plenty of resorts and hotels here that have huge meeting halls that can accommodate most any size crowd if you ever decided to do a webinar or seminar. And don’t forget all of Asia is close to the Philippines and can be reached by air in only a few hours.
One of the biggest pluses for moving to the Philippines is the language, English is spoken just about everywhere you go here, and most Filipinos can speak at least some English. Most street signs are also in English so there is no need to learn a second language as you would in most other Asian countries. I’ve been living here since 2004 and I probably know three words in Cebuano and none in Tagalog. However if I plan to stay here permanently I will likely go ahead and try learn at least Cebuano which is the dialect spoken in the Central Philippines area, Tagalog is spoken in the Manila and northern areas of the Philippines. It’s been hard for me to learn the language here as my wife speaks fluent English. I once met a Mormon Missionary and he gave me one of their Cebuano Language manuals. Now all I have to do it read it and practice the language.
If you want peace and quiet go north about 95 kilometers from Cebu City to San Remigio or Bogo City or just a little farther north to an extremely quiet little beach resort called Virgin Beach Resort owned by my good friend Ron and Fey Perry from Tulare California monthly rentals are available there and he has WI-fi and internet access in the rooms.
