    I've been reading a book called How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia (highly recommended, by the way!), and I was thinking last night about some of our members who live in countries where the cost of living is very low compared to western Europe, Australia, Singapore, Japan, South Korea, and the USA/Canada. While I'd love to hear from people in these locations, I'm especially interested in those in less developed countries.

    For instance, I know a number of our BST suppliers are from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, etc., and I'm imagining that those who are successful are making absolutely ridiculous amounts of money as a result (good on 'em!). I'm curious: how has that money changed your life? Do you help your family with it? Do you hire friends/relatives? Do you travel?

    I've been happily self-employed for about 4 years now, thanks to what I've learned here on BHW, but I'm more interested in other people's stories.

    It's changed my life in the sense that now I can do what I want. If I was in a less developed country I'd be pretty rich, but here in the USA I'm just well off.
    I love being able to move around the USA as I please though, and not being tied down to a job.

    Sometimes though I think about moving somewhere else and living lavish. However since I'm only in my early 20's I have some time to think about it.

    Everyone in my family treats me like the Don and I make sure my employees don't slack or they'll feel the iron fist. I go to lavish parties, talk to beautiful women, and push my new projects forward.

    The only person that treats me like an insignificant twerp is my 4-year old sister. It's a humbling experience and my love for her is unconditional.

    I am from INDIA.I was working as a software Engineer across many technologies ( around 12 years). but i never get job satisfaction.I love the failure in IM more than the success in my regular job.I quit my regular job one year back and into IM full time now.I have to thank my family who supported me well throughout this one year journey and appreciated my interest. I never proved them wrong as i am earning three times more than i used to earn in my regular job. YES its changed my way of life..i can spent more time with my family and friends..working from anywhere..on top of everything JOB SATISFACTION....

    Hard work..never give up attitude...keep on trying..smart planning...test test test...Obviously the experience i gained from my regular job really helped me to develop tools for IM.

    All the best to everyone in this community...

    Now that I am a billionaire ($0.01/day), my limited time does not allow me to answer all your questions. Sorry.

    I am from India, and I will speak for myself only.

    If feels amazing.

    It is out of the world feeling at least when you don't live in the big, populated cities; many people here (in rural India) don't know about Internet Marketing at all.

    I work whenever I want to. I sometimes sleep all day and work at night (Night here: Day in the USA).

    Just go around for a long ride sometimes. It's just Fun.

    One main reason being: Currency Exchange rate.

    I earn in the US $ currency form and get the money in Indian Rupees.

    Our food is a lot cheap, clothes, TV, the Internet, etc. almost everything is cheap as compared to the United States except the Oil or Gas prices.

    And usually, we are not broke!
    Parents provide the educational fees, allow living with them (or even pay for the dorms/hostel). So we are completely free of debt tension.

    On the concluding note, it helps earning US$ and spending Indian Rupees to live an amazing life in India.

    Certainly changed my life! But not only on a financial level. Even though I'm very comfortable, the biggest change has been finding a never ending challenge.

    Freedom of thought, being creative and playing the biggest chess game in history is where I get my satisfaction.

    Oh, and having a tea break when I like is a major plus.

    Congrats...thanks for sharing your experience. I think a lot of people get into IM because of job satisfaction issues in their regular careers. Glad things are going well.
    That's great, man. Happy to know you are able to live without the negative stress of debt now.
