Case Study: Doug
Type of Business: Day Trader

Doug is a day trader and an avid traveler. He grew up with dreams of traveling the world and knew that’s what he was destined to do. Question was – how could he do it? Turns out he had a knack for the Financial Markets.

Knowing that with a good internet connection and professional trading program he could trade from virtually anywhere, he left his home in California and hit the road. For a few years now Doug has been living in long-term hotels/apartments around the world. Last month he was in Bogota, Colombia, and in a couple of weeks, he’ll be in Quito, Ecuador for about a month.

Since he was never in one place for more than several weeks at a time, and only came back to the US every few months, he needed to maintain a home base, an address within the United States. At first, though he realized this would burden his mother, Doug would have his mail sent to his mother’s house – he especially hated her having to go to the post office to forward his mail internationally. Doug knew it was time to get a professional solution.

Doug subscribed to VH International Business Solutions’ virtual office business address, mail forwarding, and NYC voice mail with email forwarding of messages. He would have his mail forwarded on a monthly basis to his current destination. Being that he was never in one place for more than a month, VH International Business Solutions would be forwarding his mail to a different destination on a monthly basis: Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Barranquilla, Guayaquil, Santiago – Doug sure got around

Having a local number in the US was also a necessity for him. He always has a US mobile phone on hand, but often finds himself in an out of service area and needs to use a mobile phone with local service – and that means another phone number. He uses his NYC 212 voice mail number from VH International Business Solutions as a main contact number to centralize his messages. All messages are sent as a .wav file to his email address and Doug listens to them on his laptop.

Day trading is how Doug makes his living, but he also is an avid traveler and posts all his travel musings, recommendations and tips to his travel website. He is using the virtual office address as a contact for his travel website which is starting to turn a profit. Doug is now nurturing what is becoming an unintentional side business – which could ultimately give him all the freedom he desires. He is currently in plans to write a travel guide.

We are proud to have Doug as one of our esteemed virtual office clients.
