ME: “Hi, I’m Sean. Nice to meet you!”
TOURIST: “Hi Sean, so what are you doing in Cozumel?”
ME: “Oh I live here with my family.”
TOURIST: “Oh wow! That’s great! Do you work for a hotel here or one of the diamond stores?”
ME: “Nope. I own a company in the U.S. that helps local businesses with their online marketing. As long as I have an internet connection, I can put food on the table.”
TOURIST: “What brought you to Cozumel?”
ME: “Scuba diving mostly. We just plain wanted to live here.”
Next month, we will have been in Cozumel, Mexico for two years. 2 years! It’s crazy how fast time flies!
Same ‘Ol Conversation
I’ve had that conversation above about 100 times at least. Probably more.
After finding out I’m not a fellow tourist, the number one question people always want to know is how do I pay for it? How do I get to live here when they’re just on vacation from their job?
The plain fact is that I created a lifestyle business, that was internet-based, so I could do what I get to do.
It’s really that simple.
The business itself is really simple. So simple in fact, that I’ve already successfully taught others how to do it!
The Story of Sam
When we first got to the island, I met a guy named Sam. Like me, Sam is American but lives here with his wife and 2 kids. Sam is from New Mexico and someday wants to go back and raise his family there.
The challenge is that Sam was working at a local company and only earning in pesos. It would take a long time to get back to the U.S. that way.
Because I know Sam’s a sharp guy, I told him one day, “Dude, why don’t you just freaken copy my business? I’ll give you all of the resources you need to get started.”
You might think, “But wait? Why create a competitor for yourself?”
The simple answer is there’s more than enough business out there in the world of online marketing. Anyone who says different doesn’t see the opportunity.
So I started teaching Sam exactly, step by step, everything that I’ve done myself. Sam was willing to work hard so I knew he would make it happen.
Soon Sam started his own company, got his first few clients, and started becoming his own boss. As of now, just a couple of months after getting started, Sam was able to quit his job here and is running his business full time. He’ll soon have enough to live wherever he wants to live and work online indefinitely.
That’s where the idea for this book came in. I figured, if I can teach Sam to do this, and it’s allowed him this freedom, maybe there are others who could also benefit from this information. And there are, since Sam, I’ve worked with 3 others to get them started with their own companies.
And Now it’s Your Turn
If you’ve ever been interested in creating and running your own business, owning an online marketing company is one of the easiest, most scalable businesses to get started.
I created both a book and a more involved course titled, Clone My Business: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating a Successful Online Marketing Company Just Like Mine, to help you get started.
I’ve listed out everything from how to name your company to pricing your services to getting your first client and more. I even show you how to outsource everything from day one so you can grow a business that works for you and not the other way around.
I also cover how this is a totally scalable business and how, once you get it going, you can run it from literally anywhere with an internet connection.
To be clear, what I’m talking about is creating a real, legitimate service based business that solves a real need. I’m not talking about selling info products or selling telephone plans or power juice or whatever.
I’m talking about creating a real company that creates real cash flow. Something you’d be proud to show off to Mark Cuban or Tim Ferriss.
It will take a lot of work. In fact, you’ll probably work harder than you ever have before. But you’ll be your own boss and the rewards are spending time with your family whenever you want, wherever you want. It’s not hype.
I’m living it myself!

Quick note – the book is high level but still gives you all the information you need to get started. The course is a video training course available on Udemy.
I look forward to hearing your success story!
