The charming Italy

What can you buy for 1 €? Or if you are not in Europe, think of the same question, but adapted to your currency. I bet that just a couple of silly things come to your mind: toothpaste, umbrellas, junky food… But what would you do if I tell you that you can buy a house for 1 €?

Mind-blowing, isn’t it?! And the best is that it is true. Can you imagine yourself living in the lovely country of Italy? Old houses that need to be rebuilt are being sold for this affordable price with the idea of attracting new residents and tourists to these almost unoccupied towns.

Exactly as in the films. This is how 1€ houses look like.

I have to be honest, these towns are not located in the big cities, but are still an amazing alternative for those looking for summer houses, are retired or enjoy a simple and quiet life.

All these towns have something in common: the most beautiful landscapes and views. They all are located near volcanoes and islands with stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea.

Peace is what you will get in exchange, so be prepared for silence. These pretty towns are in Sicilia, Piamonte, Marche, Campania, Toscana, Lazio, Cerdeña, and Abruzzo.

What do you need to get yours?

 It changes from town to town, but in general, you just need to invest at least € 15,000 in the property during the next 3 years after getting it. An advance deposit of €5,000 will be required from you too, but with the possibility of claiming the money back after you have rebuilt the house.

This ambitious project has been out for people since 2008, but seems to have a bigger impact after Covid-19, as this country was highly affected by the pandemic. However, many of these towns are virus-free, so you can be sure that everything is gonna be fine!






Shame is the new success

As you scroll on your screen on Instagram you realize how many businesses are doing advertisement. There is nothing new in this statement, right? However, what is new is that 90% of this sponsored content is coming from new little shops that people are developing at home.

Are you supporting your friend’s businesses?

Reinvent is probably the most said and fashionable word during these tough times. Many people have lost their jobs or their contract have been suspended, so the only solution for them has been to finally get the courage to follow their dreams and do what they have always loved.

What has changed? Nothing! And probably this is the worst time to think about launching a new business, nevertheless, people understood 2 things: 1-life is too short to have boring jobs 2- When there is nothing else for you to lose, you have to give your dreams a go.

And don’t get me wrong, if I say that this is the worst time to try a new path is just because people don’t have much money to spend at the moment, but what I must admit is that I have never seen so many people truly enjoying their life, even whilst facing the worst case of uncertainty in their lives.

When everyone’s lives start going back to normal, probably not all these great ideas will keep on going, but, for sure, it has taught me something… embarrassment is such a big turning point.

Just think for a minute, what would you do if you weren’t afraid of embarrassment? We care too much about other’s comments and thoughts, and let them define us. You don’t wear that sexy bikini because you are “too old”, “too fat”, “too gay” or “too provoking”.

Stop letting yourself for later and embrace that “shame”. The only reason why it affects us so much is because there is a small thought on our mind that thinks of it. We are always waiting to be reassured of the lies that we tell to ourselves and as soon as we know about people’s comments and thoughts, we say to ourselves “I am too stupid, I knew it”.

Hey, please! Stop being your worst enemy.
