Making Connections Overseas: Experts, Expats, And Resources

Oh, The Places We’re Going In 2018

If I had to name one thing that could make the difference between launching and embracing an exciting, adventure-filled new life in a new country… and setting off for a disappointing, maybe even doomed experience overseas, it’d be:


As you work to make your plan for where best to spend your time and money overseas, focus on making the right connections.

I’m talking about…

Connections with experts—professionals with long experience helping others like you do the things you’re considering doing in the places that have your attention. Who has the authority, judgment, and experience to help you navigate the local landscape safely, efficiently, and with maximum success?

Identify as many on-the-scene, English-speaking experts as you can, including lawyers, tax pros, medical professionals, shipping agents, bankers, real estate agents, developers, etc.

Wherever you’re going and whatever you’re hoping to do once you get there, you’ll need an infrastructure of serious people who understand the challenges that expat retirees and investors face in the place where you’re thinking about spending your time and money…

Connections with expats—people just like you who have already made the move to Portugal, Belize, Colombia, France, Panama, the Dominican Republic, Thailand, Vietnam, or wherever it is you’re thinking about making a move.

To maximize your chances of success and minimize frustration along the way, you need to connect withboth professional local experts and, just as important, expats with boots-on-the-ground knowledge about the places on your short list.

Who knows better how to do what you’re thinking you want to do than other people like you who’ve already done it?…

Connections with like-minded folks—more people like you who share your dreams and ideas but who, again, like you, haven’t yet made the leap.

This retire-overseas idea is gaining momentum. More people than ever are considering moving overseas, in retirement or even decades before conventional retirement age. These folks can provide great support for you… as you can for them. While your family and friends might find your live-, retire-, and invest-overseas inclinations silly or even batty, many thousands of other folks do not.

Many thousands of folks are thinking the way you’re thinking and are also seeking a better life somewhere foreign and far-flung. These folks, who have so much in common with you, could be sounding boards for your plans and ideas and maybe even potential travel partners. Some could even become your new neighbors overseas…

Connections with me and my team—You could make a move or an investment in another country without enlisting our direct help. That’s how I got started at this.

Looking back, though, it seems to me that Lief and I did this the hard way. We set off with a boatload of naïve enthusiasm for a country we’d known to that point only as tourists, counting on hope, effort, and youthful energy to carry us through.

As, eventually, it did.

You could do the same, making your move on a wish and a promise, fingers crossed for luck. But you have an option that can greatly reduce your risk and the amount of effort required. This option can make your move, wherever you eventually decide to go, easier, more efficient, and less costly… not to mention a whole lot more fun.

You have a chance to leverage the hard-won knowledge and wisdom of me and my team… in effect goof-proofing your move to your dream place in the sun… or the mountains… the beach… or maybe the rain forest… or one of the world’s big, brand-name cities…

What new life overseas might be best for you? Only you can answer that question. What I can tell you is that no matter who you are…

Whether you’re in your 20s or your 80s or anywhere in between…

Whether you’re single or married…

Whether you have health concerns…

Whether you have kids to raise (and find good schools for)…

Whether you’re looking to retire or to invest or start a business…

And no matter if you want or need to earn an income to support your adventures…

You could improve and enrich your lifestyle dramatically while perhaps reducing your cost of living significantly by reinventing your life in a new country. And you could do it this year… by making the right connections.

Where can you make these vital connections that will lead to your success?

You could try to do it online, but online research will only get you so far. Information and connections sourced online aren’t always reliable, trustworthy, or up-to-date.

Your best option for making the best possible connections—connections with local experts, local expats, folks just like you dreaming of making a move, and, as well, with me and my team personally—is at one of our Live and Invest Overseas conferences. These are your most efficient chances to compare, consider, and filter all of your best opportunities for living and investing in the places that have sparked your imagination.

We have finalized our 2018 conference calendar. This New Year promises one of our most diverse and comprehensive live event schedules ever, with investment and lifestyle programs covering Europe, South America, Central America, and the Caribbean.

Where do you want to diversify your life and launch the adventure of your lifetime?

Please, leverage our decades of experience to formulate your plan and make your dream life overseas a reality… starting this year.

I look forward to meeting you in person somewhere sometime in 2018.

Happy New Year.
