Step 6: Take your administrative life virtual. Make sure you can access all bank accounts, brokerage accounts, credit card accounts, and investment portfolio online and that you can move money around from one to another electronically...

Step 7: Figure out what to do with all your stuff. What's coming with you, what's going in storage, what's being sold, and what's being given away...

Step 8: Show up and start enjoying your new life...

Piece of cake.

This is the approach we'll take during our Retire Overseas Conference taking place in Nashville next month.

For this year's event, we're featuring 21 top retirement havens, including your best options in the Americas, Europe, and Asia.

I've been hosting live and invest overseas conferences for nearly 30 years. This one is like no other. On stage with me during these three days will be the most impressive line-up of live-, retire-, and invest-overseas experts in the world. For this once-a-year event, more than 50 usually far-flung Live and Invest Overseas correspondents will be in one place at the same time, fully engaged in lively, interactive discussion and debate. The best places in the world to think about living, retiring, investing, starting a business, or reinventing your life right now? We'll showcase them from collective personal and firsthand experience, paying as much attention to the downsides and the caveats as to the pluses and the benefits.

Who, specifically, have I asked to join me to help introduce all those assembled in Nashville next month to the world's top living, retiring, and investing havens this 2014? I'll be acting as moderator, leading the discussions, poking, prodding, and asking the pointed questions. Joining me on stage will be...

  • Lee Harrison, Latin America expert, with more than a dozen years' experience living in the region, from Cuenca, Ecuador, to Montevideo, Uruguay, and from northeastern Brazil to (currently) Medellin, Colombia...

    Meet me in Nashville.

    I've been covering this beat for almost 30 years. I think it's fair to say that I know just about everybody you want to know if you're considering the idea of reinventing your life in a new country. I've put out a call, and more than 50 of these good folks—together the world's savviest live-, retire-, and invest-overseas experts—have agreed to join me (and you) in Nashville next month.

    I'll be leading the discussions during the three days of the event, and my focus will be on drawing out comparisons...looking honestly and critically at the advantages and the disadvantages of each destination we're featuring. Not only is this the most useful way to approach the question of where you should think about re-launching your life overseas...it's also the most fun.

    And, while creating a new life for yourself in a new country from whole cloth is, to be honest, a lot of work...this is also supposed to be fun, right?

    Our discussions in Nashville next month, therefore, will be lively, interactive, and based in every case on firsthand experience. When considering options for where and how to retire to a new country, you don't want an editor's theory or a travel writer's research. You want the real-time real deal from people who've done what you're thinking about doing. In Nashville, you'll meet more than four dozen of them, all convened with one agenda: To help you decide which haven is best for you based on what matters to you most...from weather and culture to language and cost of living.

    What's more, my one-of-a-kind Retire Overseas Conference will help you determine not only where to go...but also how to get there. In addition to real-life expats from the world's top havens, I'll also be joined in Nashville by my preferred global advisors—attorneys, tax advisors, shipping and insurance pros, residency experts, bankers, and more.

    We host at least 10 events per year. This annual Retire Overseas Conference is my favorite. It's my chance to reconnect with friends and colleagues around the world while introducing them to you and you to them.

    If you're considering the idea of restarting your life overseas, you want to be in the room with us all next month. We're counting down to the expiration of the Early Bird Discount. You have a limited window remaining to save as much as US$300 off the cost of registration.

    Full details are here.

    See you in Nashville.

    "Kathleen, I read the Overseas Opportunity Letter every time it's in my inbox. I was wondering what experts in international legalities can I contact for specifics related to Canadians who want to retire or live overseas as I believe we have some differences from U.S. expats? Who may I contact in Canada to get information for Canadians?

    "Thank you for all the information. You all work very hard to get out to everyone considering this as an option in their lives."

    --Leslie T., Canada

    All information we provide is as relevant for Canadians as for Americans with one exception, which is taxes. The tax situation is different for Canadians than for Americans. The good news is that it is different in very good ways and much simplified.

    "Kathleen, I always enjoy Lee Harrison's thorough, objective information and comparisons. What he shared about Cuenca and Medellin was perfect. In fact, for us, it is apples and oranges, and WE love both Cuenca and Medellin so much that we are making both places our ‘home.' We plan to go back and forth between the two, because they really cannot be pitted ‘against' each other and both have so much to offer. We intend to have the best of both worlds. We just need to find a more direct and shorter flight itinerary between the two cities!

    "The conference last week in Medellin was (again) absolutely fantastic. L&IO is the best! Thanks and keep it coming."

    --Andrea M., United States

    "I have to say that you seem to dig deeper into the feel of a particular place and to do comparative analysis between alternative places. Your approach is more sophisticated and thoughtful and therefore more useful than that of other information sources covering these same subjects."

    — John W., United States

    "Thank you for all your hard work. You have made a lot of people dream and a lot of dreams come true. I enjoy all the e-mails from all your staff living all over the world. I am always telling people about you and how you started your publications years ago. In fact, I just today told my banker about how honest and smart you are, letting us know where to go. Wish I had listened to you more years ago..."
