The one thing that most (western) people don’t know about living in Thailand is that you’re a bit limited to what sort of work you can do. You can’t take the job of a Thai, nor would you want to, because the wages are way too different to our western country wages. And you need the income. So, what sort of work can you do?
Well, a lot of westerners rock up in Thailand and immediately start teaching English. Now that’s definitely a job you CAN do in Thailand, especially if you come from a country where English is widely spoken. Some westerners can teach English and love it. For others it’s about as foreign as a Thai person feels trying to understand the meaning of English jokes.
Instead of trying out for the ‘school teacher’ job, there’s a much better way to earn your dosh. And this is simply by tapping into the Internet, and either setting up a website, or just doing some effective online promotion. And actually it’s not that difficult. Nor is it easy too, but hey – you won’t know until you try.
What’s particularly great about using the Internet for earning an income is that more often than not you’ll be paid in US dollars or an equivalent. And remember, you’re living in Thailand so the cost of living is pretty low compared to back home. As an example, if you were to earn a mere US$30 a day, that’d be around 1000 Thai Baht, which will go a LONG way in Thailand.
Plus the Internet is basically universal too. So you can have customers all over the globe, promote your product or services to a targeted market, communicate to your customers before USA
