 A Question to Ask Yourself Before You Make Any Big Move… 

Why do I want to move away?

If you clicked on this post you are obviously interested in unfamiliar aspects of the world outside your doorstep, but one of the most important questions to ask yourself before you pack up those bags of yours is why you want to make the move in the first place.

It’s natural for us to tire of the setting we’re accustomed to after a bad day at the office, but sometimes changing your life isn’t a necessary move and it shouldn’t (if possible) be your first and only option.

First identify where the problem lies. Are you uninspired by your surroundings? Does it not provide the opportunities you need to grow? Then see if those problems can be fixed by making changes to your current lifestyle. If they can’t, then perhaps moving away is the best option available to you after all.

London SkylineWhy is change so important for potential world changers?

The world is full of opportunities – but you didn’t need me to tell you that. What you do need me to tell you however is that these opportunities are available, not just for you but, for the people around you too. You might love these people. You might hate these people. These people might even be your unknown competition. But the truth of the matter is that opportunity is out there for anyone to grab. So what does this have to do with change and location? » Read more..

Location, Location, Location: Three Perfect Places for the Creative Entrepreneur…

Entrepreneurial Locations and HubsThe Wizard of Oz, by Frank Baum, is a classic book and film adaptation most well known for its strange collection of characters and Dorothy’s red sparkly shoes. But what’s underrated about the Wizard of Oz is its catch phrase “there’s no place like home.” It’s everywhere; from those domestic wall plaques we buy for Mother’s day to the lips of every 9-5 worker who hates their working life. But today I want you to throw away that statement.

As a potential world-changer you shouldn’t be looking for comfort in your future. Comfort isn’t success. Being the best you can be is success. And that means if your spending your days looking forward to the weekend or what you have for dinner after work, you’re on the wrong track because your soul aim should be to feel fulfilled by every aspect of your day and your life.

The home does not provide fulfilment’ it provides your most basic needs. And although it’s not always possible for us to leave everything behind and head for the big apple, as someone aiming to be the best you should be forever looking to live somewhere that will provide you with the advantages you need to be better than that other guy in the interview or that other guy who wants funds for his business or that other guy who wants to write a book.

In this post I will share with you three places that I believe can fuel your productivity; places with low cost of living, easy access to funding and all the experiences needed to make your creative work better. Whether you’re looking for a holiday or a place to live; this selection should give you a good idea about what to look for if you’re ready to take a leap.
