How to make money to live in Mexico

Thanks to my websites, my eBook and this blog, I am constantly contacted by people who want to live in Mexico. I can answer most of their questions but the stumper is – what can they do to earn money in Mexico?

For a foreigner to have the ability to work in Mexico, it is a complicated process. Understandably the Mexicans need to protect their own citizens. To be able to officially work in Mexico, a foreigner needs an FM3 (work permit) from Mexican immigration to be issued. To receive this they usually need to be sponsored by an employer who can prove that they can do work a Mexican cannot. Another option is to incorporate your own company which also requires special permissions, money and time.

When anyone asks me about - how they can work or earn a living in Mexico, I have always suggested trying to find a business that you can do online. It does not take a job from a Mexican and then you don’t have to go through all the Mexican governments’ red tape. Well you might say – that’s advice that makes sense but where would I start?

I am very excited to share with you an eBook I recently found with 20 different ways to earn money online. I bought the book myself because I wanted to know if it could help some of you with the desire to live in Mexico but not knowing the way to earn a living here. I think that the eBook provides great ideas. It is 20 different people sharing the ways they earn money online so you have lots of options and real life experience.

Here is the link. I hope you find it useful and that with its help you find your way to move here soon. At the very least, it gives you more options.

Enjoy the Adventure! Suzanne
