If you live in an area that’s been hit hard by a bad economy, then you’ve noticed that opportunities in your geographical area are scarce. So perhaps you should look outside your geographical area and look for like minded people.

What would happen if you added a buy button to your website? Perhaps you could sell your products and services over the internet. Perhaps the people three states away need you and your service.

Sometimes I get lost in the idea that my economic opportunities are tied to my geographic location. That’s simply not true. I have resources and technology that allow me to reach outside of my area. The real question is what unconventional opportunities to make a living am I passing over because I’m thinking with a closed mind.
