Paradise Orchards - Change Your Life Now!
For those of you out there with a paid off house, a few hundred thousand sitting around, a sizable stock portfolio, or maybe $200,000 in home equity. This blog is for you.
One question you should ask yourself is what is the happiest part of your day? Is it the office work? Or maybe the sunset after work with a fine glass of wine? Let's assume the latter. I don't know many people that would prefer the former, in fact I don't know any (except the abstinent).
Well, if you love that sunset, the cool wind, and a glass of wine at the end of the day, why not make it your entire day? Especially if you can make money from this wine drinking activity too.
I'm talking about buying a vineyard in Argentina of course, try to keep up. Yes, you may think after seeing many a pretentious French vineyards in movies that you would have to be a multi-millionaire to quit your job and buy one of these Château's. Though I believe most Americans would do just this if they could.
YOU CAN! Take a look at some of this pictures of vineyards / orchards in San Rafael, Argentina. These vineyards are the price of a small American house (about $200-300k) for about a 40-50 acres of land. Apples, peaches, apricots, olives, blueberries, strawberries, cherries, plums, pears, quince, almonds, and walnuts. Oh yeah a few hundred varieties of grapes too. And they make you money besides being a daily fruit salad smörgåsbord.
This American Dream is the type of life, or at least idea, that American's long for. But, Americans seem to lack the inner-courage from breaking with a society that has created a false sense of security, holding back citizens from doing what they really want. Sure, there is the language barrier that intimidates would-be expatriates. But, let's be serious, Spanish is about the easiest language to learn. If you speaky da English good, you too can speaky the Spanol real good too.
So, does the idea of quitting your job terrify you? If it does, then you have become close-minded just as everyone in power wants you to be. It's a lot easier to control a public that has it's head in the sand.
So, can you save that $200,000 needed to buy a vineyard and orchard and move you and the familia to Argentina? Of course. Maybe not overnight, but with planning, this can easily be achieved.
Surely, you'll want to think about every detail and consequence of this life change. Perhaps these questions will help you answer this.
Do you think your children would have a better quality of life on an Argentine vineyard/orchard or in their current place?
Would you enjoy life more, living a slow, nature based existence?
What do you want to achieve in life? Or do you prefer to enjoy the ride?
If you are interested in this dream in the slightest, entertain it with some research. Maybe San Rafael, Argentina isn't for you, maybe it's Costa Rica or the Bahamas. The point is that you are closer to your dreams than you think, so go live them while you can.
