The Secret Of How To Retire Overseas

No Matter What Your Life Looks Like Right Now, You Could Be Living The Life You Want This Year

You can reinvent your life…start over…enjoy the lifestyle or the retirement you’ve been dreaming about…this year…no matter what your life looks like right now.

No matter how big (or small) your budget…

No matter your age (you’re neither too young nor too old…I promise)…

No matter what else is going on in your life right now (there is no “right” time)…

No matter if you need to continue to earn a living (you can)…

No matter your family circumstances (whether you have school-aged children or parents you’re responsible for)…or what your kinfolk think (let them call you crazy)…

No matter your concerns, your fears, your uncertainties…

For years, I day-dreamed about what life might be like in some exotic, foreign clime. From the age of 21, I travelled regularly, all over the world…but, for 14 years, I returned home and rationalized a reason to stay there.

We all need a little push, something to get us started. Once you take the first step, the second is easier, the third easier yet, and soon you have that glorious thing called momentum helping to pull you along.

In my case, the little push came from my employer at the time. The international publishing company I’d been working for nearly 13 years wanted to open an office in Ireland, to take advantage of the business and tax incentives that the Irish government was offering back then. The opportunity presented itself…and, finally, I found the courage to jump.

Today I recognize that one reason I was able to leap when I did was because I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I’d been researching and writing about living overseas for years, yes, but research isn’t the same as reality. When my husband and I packed ourselves, our daughter, and our eight oversized suitcases into the SUV that day in Baltimore and made our way to the airport for our overnight flight to Shannon, Ireland, we didn’t know what we didn’t know. And that was probably a good thing.

In the 13 years since, we’ve reinvented our lives from Baltimore, Maryland, to Waterford, Ireland…from there to Paris…and then, most recently, we re-launched ourselves again in Panama City, where we’re living now. Along the way, we’ve started businesses, made homes, and raised our children (one of whom was born in Ireland)…

Frankly, we’ve probably done just about everything you could imagine doing as part of your new life overseas. We’ve bought, built, renovated, decorated, and sold houses. We’ve bought, flipped, and developed land. We’ve shipped personal belongings, antique furniture, and pets. We’ve qualified for residency, opened bank accounts, even acquired second passports in Ireland…

Did we ever imagine way back then that, 13 years later, we’d have travelled from Waterford, Ireland, to Paris, France, and then on to Panama City, Panama, where we’d be living, running a business, and sending our 11-year-old son to school?

No way. We had no idea when we took that first step down our own adventures-overseas path where it would lead.

And I can’t tell you now where your adventures overseas will lead you. But I can say with confidence that the only thing you’ll regret about them is that you didn’t find the courage to launch them sooner.

I can also tell you that no matter what your reservations…they can be addressed and overcome. This idea is infinitely customizable.

Here in our Panama City office this month we are finalizing the plans for the Retire Overseas Conference we’re holding in Orlando, Florida, next month. Putting the finishing touches on the plans for this program, I’m getting very excited.

Over these three days in Orlando, I’m going to prove to you, with the help of over 30 friends, expats, experts, and colleagues convening from all across the globe, that you really can reinvent your life to be whatever you want it to be…no matter what it looks like right now.

This Retire Overseas Conference isn’t about hype. This is about where and how.

Where and how to…

  • Earn a living…

Specifically, we’ll walk you through four ways to earn a comfortable (or better) income anywhere. I and others who will join me on stage have built businesses all over the world. We’ll show you how you can do it, too.

  • Reinvent your life on a budget of as little as US$600 per month…

No, there aren’t many places around the world where a couple could live on a budget this small…but there are some. We’ll introduce you to the most appealing and the most welcoming, with the help of people who know these places from firsthand, real-life, and recent experience.

    • Improve the quality of your life enormously…

A better life isn’t necessarily the result of spending more money. You can reduce your expenses and, at the same time, increase your standard of living. One big benefit of starting over overseas is this opportunity it provides to enhance your life. Even a modest nest egg can buy you an extraordinary life in some of the world’s most interesting and appealing destinations.

  • Figure how much money you need to get started…

At this Retire Overseas event, I’ll present a capital requirements budget (it’s highly controllable and can amount to precious little). I launched my own life overseas with little more than a plane ticket and a reservation at the Granville Hotel in Waterford, Ireland.

  • Build the infrastructure you need to support the lifestyle you want…

You can manage your life (your bank accounts, your investment accounts, your credit cards, your snail mail, your business ventures) with a laptop and an Internet connection. Lief and I and others you’ll hear from at this event manage businesses, investments, bank accounts, and much more as we move continuously around the world. Our lives are in our laptops…meaning we’re mobile and free. You can be, too.

During this October Retire Overseas event, you’ll meet experts and expats from all over the world…retirees, business-builders, investors, adventurers from all corners of the globe. I know that we give a lot of virtual ink to the Americas, but this event is about the whole world…and the many opportunities for fun and profit that it offers right now.

As I mentioned earlier, we all need a little push. To that end, here’s what we’ve decided to do:

We’ve planned a special Retire Overseas Sneak Preview Teleconference, during which key experts and presenters who will be joining us on stage in Orlando next month will give you a sneak preview of this upcoming Retire Overseas live event. This is your chance for a glimpse behind the curtain as we plan what is shaping up to be our biggest and most important event this year.
