One of the perceived obstacles about moving to Mexico is earning a living here; however, modern technology and flexible work practices make working in Mexico more viable than ever.

PART ONE of this guide is written to explain the job market and landscape in Mexico, how to go about seeking employment, and what to expect from the working environment here, as the culture and working ways are different to, for example, the U.S. and Europe, even if you are working for an American or European company.

PART TWO of this guide gives you a complete overview about being self-employed or starting your own business in Mexico. With the job market tight and work visas harder to come by, increasing numbers of people are exploring the routes to self-employment here, and for those working in the “knowledge economy”, opportunities are abundant and increasing numbers of knowledge professionals are working flexibly from abroad, part-time or full-time. This guide explains how to go about doing that, and what you need to consider on your journey to an independent working lifestyle in Mexico.
