Hello from Costa Rica

    Hello everyone.

    I have been reading through a few threads and can say that the people here are the most knowledgable people in online business in all the forums that I have visited. So, I decided to join in!

    I took a few years off from work to relax and recently moved to Costa Rica to experience a new culture. So far, its been really great! I am located at the the edge of a national rainforest reserve where I have only had access to dial-up internet until I recently hooked up a 12 mile wireless internet link to my house. From 30kbs to 900kbs! What a difference!

    Actually it is amazing to have a lifestyle with (almost) high speed internet and live completely surrounded by nature. Everyday I see another insect or bird where I say to myself, "I have never seen you (or your species) before!" What incredible bio-diversity here!

    On top of that, I sense my thinking is clearer here. It must be due to the higher oxygen concentration in the air. There is well over 100 miles of dense rainforest downwind to me. I will have to measure the oxygen concentration in the air here someday. I am certain it is a few percent higher than the air in Los Angeles where I came from! Is it true you will live longer if you live in a higher oxygen concentration environment? We will see!

    So now to start a new online business and live a long life.

    I am open to read suggestions and be linked to what would be the best ideas or internet business models to follow for creating immediate income with scalability and longevity. The internet is changing so quickly, that I need your sound advice. I am ready to hear what you have to say!

    I hope to contribute a few bits of useful information to this forum. More than likely, I look forward to learning from all of you!

    To our success,
    Brian

    Welcome, Brian!

    I was in Costa Rica for a month last Summer. And I agree, it's wonderful. More countries could learn from the way CR has set aside so much land as a National preserve.

    You don't like that crappy Imperial beer though, do you?

    Actually, I don't. However, they just introduced IMPERIAL LIGHT and I will say that it is the best "light" beer on the market today! I do like the Bavaria Gold and Bavaria Black beer. They also produce Heineken here for all of Central America. Heineken from Holland is actually better though.

    UGH! I hated all of those beers minus the Heineken (sorry Summer, I know..I'm a pussy). The Heineken was better than the US version.

    Get on a plane and come to Costa Rica. Denmark is too cold and grey this time of year!

    Yes, this has finally become a reality; living in the jungle and working by internet!

    I do want to set up a center here for friends and partners to come and visit and work together on IM projects. I have a few places in mind to do this so eventually it will be possible to experience Costa Rica and work via internet.

    How many of you would travel here if you knew you could keep up with your online work while seeing most of Costa Rica?

    No....I actually will drink IMPERIAL! I just prefer the others. Oh, I forgot to add PILSEN.

    On a hot day at the beach or after paragliding the day off Caldera or near Quepos, I will drink any of the beers!

    Will,

    I am at the edge of the Carillo Barillo National Park up on the mountain in San Isidro Heredia.

    But I have a few other properties that I plan to develop in Playa Hermosa, another south of Dominical and one on top of Golfito mountain. Several years ago I put my money into real estate here. It has proved to be a good investment! If they open up telecommunications here, I will develop a wireless internet company to provide internet here that is desperately needed.

    Thanks for inquiring. Where are you Will and when you coming to Costa Rica?
