Welcome! Here’s what Thrifty Look is all about.
Ola! How are you doing? In your quest for an alternative Batcave, you’ve finally landed on my library.
Isn’t the internet a beautiful masterpiece? It brought you here. I’m pleased to meet you!
The internet has blurred the borders and bridged the distance. It enabled you to do things that used to require a physical presence without having to change your locations. It allowed you to reach people on the other side of the planet.
No it’s not sorcery. It’s simply the offspring between the marriage of Science and Mathematics.
It is empowering. Be wise when using this powerful tool.
Expanding internet access gave rise to entrepreneurs even in developing countries.
Your work these days is no longer confined within the 4 walls. Your career is no longer dictated by your geography.
However, it is inevitable that sometimes you’d feel bored staying in your home office or going to your usual coworking space. You have a desire for new refreshing views.
It’s normal. There are also times when I feel that itch to change scenery, too.
If you are a digital nomad running a location independent business, I’ve got you covered.
I write here about the places I’ve visited where you can still continue working on your internet business.
Some are coffee shops while others are resorts. Wide varieties in venue because we are a unique breed capable of mixing work and play. Inserting some hustle on our vacation.
Hitting two birds with one stone.
On days when you feel low and you can’t bring yourself to work productively on your established routine, take a break.
You are tired and you need to disconnect from the matrix for a while. Don’t hesitate to give yourself some time off.
I also write about places that can spark your imagination as you distress and reconnect with nature. Relax and let your creative juices flow again.
It’s okay to pause and let the world go on without you for a while.

I’m a millennial making a decent living out of the internet. I started this site last 2012 as a way of challenging myself, exploring new avenues and developing new skills.
I don’t have a computer-related college degree.
I took a totally different career path from what my schooling prepared me for. The transition wasn’t easy and it was scary.
Until today, I’m still not sure if I’m taking the right path. That’s okay.
I’m human and I’m not following someone else’s script on how I should live my life.
I have already accepted a long time ago that my life has no security of a paycheck and it is full of uncertainties. That’s okay.
Take calculated risks. Don’t limit yourself.
Don’t let the chains of traditional working tie you down.
Spread your wings.
Times are changing.
Situations are improving.
Make technology work for you.
