From California To Guayaquil—How One Family
Reinvented Their Ho-Hum Lives Into
A Grand Adventure
Oct. 27, 2013, Panama City, Panama: live from the scene at our 2013 Ecuador Conference. One speaker explains how he came to Ecuador and all there is to love about this colorful, cultural, affordable haven.
Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,
Lief and I couldn’t be in Ecuador ourselves, so we dispatched a team to represent us at last week’s Live and Invest in Ecuador Conference Leading that team were Lee Harrison (our Latin America Correspondent, who lived in Ecuador for five years) and our daughter Kaitlin.
While Lee acted as host on our behalf, MC’ing each day and answering the crowd’s eager questions about living, retiring, and investing in this beautiful country, Kaitlin did double-duty, too. She (wo-)manned the table for Trader Jack’s Bazaar, the new import-export business that she has just launched with her younger brother Jackson...and also acted as my eyes and ears on the ground, reporting back to me live each day.
Kaitlin’s real-time blow-by-blow of the presentations, conversations, and recommendations shared in Guayaquil last week made me regret even more that I wasn’t able to participate. I’ve a great deal now that I want to share with you, which I will, over the coming few days...starting, today, with the real-life story of full-time Ecuador expat Richard Evans.
Here’s how Kaitlin has relays Richard’s presentation to the crowd, the story of how and why he, his wife, and their three daughters relocated from California to Guayaquil, Ecuador...
