I would set up a second home in the other Georgia and live a laptop lifestyle for the next 10 years, running my business from there, where earning just $5,000 year would put me in the more affluent category no matter where I lived. That would pay for all living necessities and extras while I focused on product development and marketing online. I’d invest a consistent portion of my time helping create better systems for both children and adults to learn English, as well as helping local businesses join the world marketplace online. And I’d definitely be living in Batumi on the beach — what they used to call the Russian Riviera — with monthly fun trips to visit friends across the country, as well as exploring Turkey, Armenia, Azerbajian, Russia, and Eastern Europe.
I’m getting to the point where spending $5,000/month to live in America is seeming less and less appealing, especially when the world offers so much more in return for that $5,000 (as long as you can stay healthy, that is). When I was young, I traveled Western Europe, but now I’m finding I want to see the rest of the world before I go.
With only about 12,000 days left to invest, I want to make sure I not only get the most bang out of life for my buck, but make each of those 12,000 days a truly memorable one. I love my country, but the world’s just so much bigger and accessible now. No time to waste on wasting money…
