We wanted to update you on Intern Profits’ upcoming move to Vancouver, BC. At the end of April we will be packing up all our belongings, taking a road trip with our kids back to Vancouver (where Justin grew up) and then a 4 month working sabbatical in Panama.
We’ve spent the last 2.5 years in sunny San Diego building our businesses and professional contacts (what we set out to do when we moved here) and enjoyed a sun filled few years in one of the most beautiful areas in the U.S. Our plan had always been to return to Vancouver where we have a large support network of family and friends and for our oldest, Stella, to start school.
From May to August we will be working (and playing) in Panama. We will also be selling our villa in Bocas Del Toro, Panama. Our villa is located in a resort called Red Frog Beach. It was an investment property that we purchased way back in 2004.
So what does this all mean to our Intern Profits community?
Let me explain.
Well, if you’ve been following us for awhile you may know that Justin and I have been in business since 2003 and have been fortunate to live in 3 of the best cities in North America: Washington, DC. (where we started our first business in real estate investing); Vancouver, BC (where we started our second business in internet marketing and had our 2 beautiful children); and now San Diego, CA (where we launched Intern Profits).
Because of the way we’ve structured all of our businesses we’ve been afforded the luxury of working anywhere, any time. We have a full team (virtual interns, virtual assistants, consultants, contractors, property managers, realtors, bookkeepers, accountants, graphic designers, web developers, etc.) spread out around the globe helping us run and maintain our business 24/7.
It doesn’t matter if we are visiting family in Virginia (like I am the past week and this week) – I’m able to do interviews, conduct webinar presentations, stay in contact with my customers and clients, and even write a chapter for an upcoming book on internships – all because we have systems, process, technology and software and of course excellent human resources that allows us this lifestyle.
We’ve set-up our business in a way that we can work any time, anywhere successfully and we want to share how we do this with our Intern Profits community.
We know that many of you are solopreneurs or have a very small staff and we want to share with you how we have set-up systems and process, and tapped into cutting edge technology and resources to allow us this freedom. We will be sharing this with you over the next few months as we embark on the next chapter in our lives.
For those of you in the U.S. who may be wondering, what does the move to Canada mean to us? It means that we will continue to grow Intern Profits internationally and learn what other countries are doing that can improve what we do here in the U.S.
We’ve been following the Canadian Small Business Internship program closely and are excited to learn more and share this information with our community.
We’ve always been engaged with what is going on in Canada and England around internships and this move will help us further engage and build the Intern Profits community.
For our Canadian customers we are excited to now be able to help you more closely navigate internship programs in Canada.
We have many exciting things in store over the next few months so be sure to tuned.
Share and Enjoy:
