What do you do to make money to live in Mexico?

Travelight I took her comment to mean that she is looking into providing telehealth (over the computer through an internet connection) psychological care to people in the US from Mexico.  This is how she could make money while living in Mexico.

Susan some people will pay out of pocket for that service.  I wonder if it matters what state you are licensed in then.

Well, If that is what she is trying to say, that makes no sense to me. I can't imagine anyone in the U.S. seeking mental health care from Mexico. The other thing is she is a social worker , not a mental help Professional (MHP) or psychologist. Social workers manage obtaining treatment and find housing placement, and follow up care. If the people are in the U.S. I don't know why they would seek a social worker in Mexico to help them.

I could work in medicine here if I wanted to because they have a shortage of qualified nursing professionals for teaching positions. But the U.S. would not be too willing to have me teaching nursing from Mexico. There are also licensing issues, and funding issues.

We work in our home country until we don't need to work anymore. Then we comfortably retire and don't  need to make money.  The Mexicans struggle to earn a living and live on very small amounts of money.  You want to make money here?   Give me a break!!!!  Or just stay in your home country.  This is not the land of Milk and Honey, nor are the streets paved in gold.

Wow!  What a limiting point of view.  We live in a Global Economy and technology allow us to work anywhere there is an internet connection.  Usually epats have a much more positive outlook on life. Do you really need to impose limitation bias on other because you have them?  We live a in VIBRANT and growing Mexican community/economy.  There is OPPORTUNITY EVERYWHERE - it all depends on your perspective.  Thoughts are things...

Seems that we have drifted way off topic. The topic is "What do you do to make money to live in Mexico?"

Mulfords opinion about thoughts being things is not the subject.  Negative opinions that drive a negative reality is not the topic either. Let's get back to What do you do to make money ?

YES!  Without JUDGEMENT Please!

Seems reasonable to me.

I attended a telemental health training.  They underscored the need to be licensed in the State the client resides.  I do not know all that needs to be known about it.  It would be nice if it worked without that especially for social workers, because their licenses are not reciprocal among the States.

I am a cpa and will be doing my work on computer. But I am curious what kind of help you need with your business? I am planning to move next year but trying to prepare myself.

Hello i read your reply and was wondering how i could get hired on. I'm living in mexico now and looking for a job. I am a hard worker and fast learner! Hope to hear from you soon!

Hello, I'm very interested in any business opportunities in Mexico. I'm trying to retire there very soon  any info you may have is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Tracy B...

My husband is in TJ already for a year and has struggled with income. We are seriously trying to find a solution to the income situation there. Would love to hear more about what you suggest.

I look forward to hearing more about your solution.

To make the long story short I am considering moving to Mexico Playas Tijuana I need work fluent in both English and Spanish in the future if I can sell my house here I would like to open a business any suggestions please hmu

Ok, So Jher 42, Tlbigsby Darlene, and Baseball01.

first thing you might want to do is assess exactly what do you have to offer Mexico, because that is what it is about. The next thing is to realize the salaries are nothing like the U.S., but to balance that out the cost of living is not like the U.S. either.

Speaking some ,or a lot of Spanish is a major plus, but not so much in T.J. where many people speak both English and Spanish.

So where are the jobs, well I understand they are expanding English teaching in schools, do you have a degree ? They also seem to need people who can teach nursing, do you have a nursing degree ?  I'm told some resorts are looking for bilingual employees. Is there a U.S. company that might hire you to work in Mexico ? Some Uber drivers are bilingual people who moved to Mexico.

So , only you have the answers to these questions. If you have funds you might look into a hostel or B& B business, or explore what unique business Mexico might be interested in. Keep in mind that Mexico already has some highly skilled hard working people of it's own, so you have to work with and augment what is already there.
