Key To Early Retirement In Ecuador: 1st Attempt Passive Income

My mom worked for 30 years in the USA as a school teacher, and retired with a few hundred thousand in savings, 2 properties, 1 mortgage, and a $3,000/month pension.

Obviously, I’m not going that route.

But I feel the key to an early retirement is a passive income of at least $3000 a month without it depending on the highly volatile world markets (stocks, bonds, metals).

So this year I’m focused on just that, creating an income of at least $3000 a month passive income (meaning you get it and don’t have to do much of anything)… here in Ecuador.

And I’ll keep you updated on all the wins and losses.

Most entrepreneurs and independently employed lean on rental properties for that income.  I don’t think that is the way to go here in Ecuador because rents are low and tenant laws problematic.

So my focus is going to be primarily on retirement homes, agriculture and Ecuador web-based businesses.

This week I launched my first try at it.  A website for folks who want to rent cars in Quito, Ecuador.

If you love your car, you will care how clean your car is. Cleaning the outside of your car is easy business, you can just do it in one flash or can you not?

Carpets will be one of the most expensive items to purchase when furnishing your home, business or office. So naturally you will have to preserve the quality of your carpets to ensure their life expectancy. Carpets act as the first defence against dust, grit and soil and while vacuuming on a regular basis will alleviate some of these problems. There is no substitute for professional cleaning, which will remove the deeper soils and maintain the freshness of your carpet. By having your carpets cleaned professionally you will ensure a far greater level of hygiene than normal vacuuming. Carpets naturally soak up airborne dust allergies, which settle deep among the fibres of the carpet but these allergies can be easily prevented with professional cleaning. Having your carpets cleaned by professionals will extend their life expectancy and ensure they retain their freshness.

Carpet manufacturers design their products to disguise dirt and what might appear to be a clean carpet will often be laden with dirt. Sand and grit can cause considerable damage to your carpet if they are left unattended.

The benefits of having your carpets professionally cleaned is to ensure your investment appears as fresh and bright as when you first laid them.

Professional cleaners are also able to help assess your carpet and take proper care of your investment. Another welcome aspect of steam cleaning is that any undesirable stains will be removed and are less likely to remain as a dirty residue. The removal of sticky residues is very important because otherwise they attract dust that will give your carpet an unattractive appearanceCleaning the interior of a car cannot be done in a flash, it is not a matter of sponge bathing the seats, the dashboard, and the car carpets, and then that is it. No, you have to do what is known as detailing the interior of your car.

Detailing your car interior is therefore the first step in cleaning car interior effectively. To clean the car you will need a vacuum that will blast off the inevitable dust that is clogged in the seats, on the dashboard, in the boot, on the floor of the car and on every seam that may harbor dust particles in your car. It is prudent to use a plastic vacuum device as opposed to the metal type in order to keep the fabric in your car from tearing and scratching. Vacuums for the car are a must have, for cleaning car interior. These are not bulky equipment and they use very little power. If you have been keeping your car relatively clean then the vacuuming process should take 20-minute tops. What else is mandatory for cleaning car interior is taking care of the dashboard and the console. These parts of your car are highly susceptible to damage from the heat a may because cracking and the ugly fading that comes with an overheated console. Therefore, these need to be treated using UV sunscreen and such like chemicals that protect the rear and the front glasses from the sun’s rays. You can use a device to apply the sunscreen evenly or you can just use a rug.

Perhaps the most time consuming activity during cleaning car interior is watching the carpets. These have arguably the most dirt and will require almost 2 hours cleaning time to get rid of the dirt completely. This process involves using a vacuum first to blow of the dust thus making your scrubbing job much easier. You will also need car shampoos and detergents to take clean the mats entirely. Drying off the car mats can be done by the use of a dry-wet vacuum or a heavy towel and you are done with the mats. These are the most important areas to factor in when cleaning car interior. Other nooks and cronies are the window frames, panels, and plastic or vinyl coverings that are around the car. These need to be wiping using wet rags to too. Nevertheless, it is important to ensure that the chemicals you use for cleaning the car interior are not corrosive and will not affect the vinyl or plastic covering as well as the other fabrics in your car.

The premise: Rent a cars at the airport are PRICEY, yet the little domestic rent a car places in the city are much cheaper.  So I made a deal with one in the city to deliver and retrieve their cars from the airport here in Quito and I’d make 12% commission on sales I made.  Essentially the idea is to bring the city prices here to the airport  area.  For instance, in the city, the economy cars you can get for $23 a day plus 12% tax (with 60 km).  Same car is about double that in the airport.

The costs: Domain name ($15/yr) built website myself in wordpress (free), signed up for a gmail account and a live chat account (not yet implemented in site) $15/month. That’s it.

The strategy: Once deal was made and site launched I found a bilingual Ecuadorian friend of mine who wants to make extra money who answers the emails and the calls and handles the bookings. The clients deposit to my account, then I split the commissions with him.

Our clients: Mainly Ecuadorians so we don’t have an instant book now feature, most Ecuadorians prefer to email, call, call again and then deposit in bank account to confirm booking.

The sales: In our first week we’ve sold for commissions of $3.60, $22, $20, $32.  Total $77.60.  Not bad for the first week, we’ll see from here how it goes.

One thing I’ve never seen many web gurus talk about are the incredible online opportunities there are in developing countries selling in the local language to locals.  There simply isn’t much decent competition so it is possible to make an impact quickly.
