Retire overseas. It’s a bigger idea than it’s ever been and gaining more momentum all the time.
Thirty years ago, when I began covering this beat, I was considered part of the alternative press. Today, I report regularly on opportunities for living better and retiring well in key spots across the globe not only for my own Live and Invest Overseas publications, but also for U.S. News & World Report, The Huffington Post, and The Wall Street Journal. I’ve been interviewed on the topic by The New York Times, USA Today, Kiplinger, Forbes, The Economist, Money magazine, CBS, ABC, Fox News, MSNBC, CNBC, Bloomberg, CNN, the AARP, and countless others.
Retire overseas has gone mainstream. It’s an idea whose time has come.
I know… I’m preaching to the choir. You understand the appeals and the benefits of this big, important, and timely idea better than most.
That’s why I’m writing to you now, to give you an early heads up:
Mark your calendar. The biggest and best retire overseas event of the year will take place Aug. 28–31 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
If you’re just beginning to consider the idea of taking your retirement global and are struggling to sift through all the information and recommendations you’re finding on the topic, you want to be in the room with us in Las Vegas. We’ll help you filter out the options that are right and best for you…
If you’ve been contemplating the options and opportunities for reinventing your life in retirement in a new country for years but haven’t been able to make a plan and pull the trigger, you want to join us in Las Vegas… so we can give you the push you need to get off your derrière…
If you’re paralyzed by all the choices, unable to identify your personal retirement paradise overseas, meet me in Las Vegas. My team and I have helped many, many thousands of others in your situation… we can help you, too…
If you have a specific destination in mind but are uncertain how, exactly, to get from where you are now to where you want to be, one more time, get thee to Las Vegas. This is your chance to make your fantasy retirement a reality…
My annual Retire Overseas Conference is your chance to walk away from any worries about how to pay for retirement and realize every best dream of retirement you’ve ever had, no matter how big or small your retirement budget. Retirement shouldn’t be a time of scraping by and making do, of giving up and scaling back. This next phase should be your chance to take life by storm… to travel, explore, and discover… to reinvent yourself and to realize daydreams too long set aside…
This is your time. You’ve worked for it. You’ve earned it. Now seize it.
Thirty years ago, retire overseas was about retiring. Not today. Today’s “retiree” overseas isn’t so easily pinned down.
“Retire overseas” has become a catch phrase to describe a way of life… a way of life that has less and less to do with actually retiring. Folks of conventional retirement age don’t have the monopoly on living better, on chasing adventure, on expanding and enriching their quality of life while reducing their cost of living. In today’s world, anybody can do this.
I’ve been hosting conferences on retiring overseas almost as long as I’ve been reporting on the idea. Used to be, these events were attended exclusively by 50-, 60-, 70-, and 80-somethings. In recent years, these open-minded retirees have been joined by people decades younger. My events today welcome growing numbers of 40-, 30-, even 20-somethings looking for outside-the-box ideas for reinventing their lives.
It’s a sign of our times.
Thirty years ago, retiring overseas wasn’t only a novelty, it was a challenge. Imagine trying, back then, to receive mail, pay your bills, and stay in touch with family and business obligations in one country while living in another? Thirty, twenty, even a dozen years ago, taking your life and yourself to a new country was hard work.
No longer. Thanks to forever-improving technology, it’s not only possible today to be in one place and stay in real-time communication with almost any other place on earth, it’s ever easier. That’s why a 20- or 30-something can opt, today, to take his business, his family, and his future on the road… and see where that road leads him.
My Retire Overseas Conference is designed to provide all the support and know-how you need to join today’s retire overseas revolution, no matter what your age or personal circumstances.
In 30 years of traveling the world and helping readers explore their retirement options overseas, I’ve met people from all walks of life who have carved out new lives for themselves in places that fit their own, personal ideas of paradise…
Some of them single… some married. Some, as I said, in their 80s… others in their 20s. Some with health issues… others with young kids they needed to raise (and put through school) in a safe environment. Some looking to start a business… others looking to wind down and enjoy more free time. Some looking for the bustle of city life… others looking to escape to the beach or a tranquil country retreat.
If you think you need to fit some special criteria to make a new start of your life overseas, think again.
There’s no such thing as the “perfect retire overseas candidate.” To realize whatever dream you have of a better life overseas, all you need is a spirit of adventure, the dedication to follow through…
And the right information and support.
That’s where my team and I come in.
My annual Retire Overseas Conference is the biggest event on my conference calendar, the one where I gather far-flung experts and friends from all across the world to showcase all our top retirement havens (21 of them this year) under one roof. With their help, I bring you the world’s best at one time, in one room.
My experts and I have traveled, lived, invested, and done business far and wide. We’ve rented, bought, and sold property. Collectively, we’ve educated children, availed of hospital and medical services, established residency and citizenship, opened bank accounts, built houses, furnished homes, shipped household goods, made friends, and made new lives in every corner of this globe…
When we recommend a place, that recommendation is based on real-world, firsthand experience.
And, for every recommendation we make, we give you the whole story—”warts and all,” as we like to say.
That’s the agenda for our three-and-a-half days together in Las Vegas. With the help of the dozens of experts, colleagues, expats, advisors, and friends who will join Lief Simon, Lee Harrison, and me on stage, we’ll provide a balanced view of each and every one of the best places in the world today to think about reinventing your life and living better for less.
We’ll arm you with the practical support you need to make your retirement dreams come true in whichever of these locations you decide to call home.
From Caribbean hideaways to traditional country escapes and cosmopolitan city choices, your ideal retirement haven is out there. Please, let us help you find it.
If you’re ready to nail down a plan for a freer, richer, more fulfilling, more adventure-filled, and more affordable life overseas—and to make that plan a reality as easily, efficiently, and quickly as possible—you need to do just one thing right now:
Open your calendar and mark the date:
Sixth Annual Retire Overseas Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, Aug. 28–31.
We’re finalizing the program and will be ready to begin taking registrations for this, the biggest and best retire overseas event of the year later this week.
Meantime, you can get your name on the first-alert list for an exclusive discount and an opportunity to register as a VIP. VIP attendees enjoy special discounts and perks. These places are first-come, first-served and typically sell out with the first 48 hours.
P.S. I’m no longer able to make it to every event on our calendar. However, I look forward to this annual Retire Overseas Conference each year and wouldn’t miss it. I’ll be hosting the event and moderating every panel discussion. I very much look forward to meeting you in Las Vegas in August.
