'A Little History', founder - Glen Murphy
Today my passion is my online business entrepreneurexpats.com where i am living the digital-life which gives me the freedom and flexibility to live and work anywhere there is a WiFi connection.
There are many people now living a ‘laptop lifestyle’ and i plan to help as many people as possible realise this way of life is possible.
Obviously an online business is not for everyone but it is the future. Individuals who resonate with this new exciting digital revolution and understand the opportunity will greatly benefit.
By building an online business you have the possibility to create a ‘financial digital safety-net’ for yourself and your family.
One thing i do know is your age and technical skills are not important, this new ‘digital revolution’ has opened up incredible opportunities for anyone with the will and the want to make it happen!
My main goal with entrepreneurexpats.com is to help as many people as possible achieve freedom and flexibility where upon you get to choose where you live and work.
You empower yourself and take control back. You get to follow your passion and work on your business, your dreams not somebody else’s.
Freedom for the the individual is a massive driving force for me and my mentors.
How it began
I was not academic and school did not inspire me but I had real curiosity and have always been a little rebellious and adventurous.
I realized i would never be able to stick to a 9 to 5 job or a long term career, so i set off into the unknown with a small rucksack strapped to my back and booked a one way ticket to the Greek Islands.
My work experience has been diverse, here is a brief outline of my work and travel adventures.
Previous to working as a salesman for Canon UK, I completed a 5 year apprenticeship in heating and ventilation.
The day i received my ‘City Guilds of London Certificate’ and was allowed to call myself a qualified trades person, i got an extra £2.50 per hour, that day I said I would never work on a building site ever again.
The building site culture and future income did not seem like much fun.

There have been many months to be honest of no work, just travelling around this wonderful world visiting many countries and meeting beautiful people across different cultures.
Also some crazy stories but i will have to save those for another time. If we ever cross paths and share a beer.
All the above and much more untold escapades spans a 25 year period where i experienced splendid highs and challenging lows.
It is important to note it was not always easy but so far i have followed my heart and done it ‘my way’ and i plan to continue in the same vein but as i am older and wiser i will listen to my head and heart in unison.
