Good Times, Great Company, New Friends

One of the best parts of our live events is the chance they afford to spend time among like-minded people living interesting lives and pursuing out-of-the-ordinary adventures.

This week, during our Live & Invest in Panama Conference in Panama City, for example, I met…

Anne and Jack from Massachusetts…she’d like to come to Panama to start a pottery cooperative, he’s researching the idea of bringing his bio-fuel business to this country…

John from Denver…who’s not as interested in moving himself to Panama as he is in relocating his money…

Amanda and Jerry from the Midwest…who are off today, now that the conference has concluded, to explore Boquete, where they intend to retire among the coffee farms and perhaps even beginning farming a little themselves…

Edward from Arizona…who has a long-term plan to move himself, his family, and his assets from the States to Panama and who right now is shopping for a “crisis buy” condo in Panama City…

Ricardo from Spain…who took the opportunity this week to research banking not only in Panama but elsewhere in the region and who is considering now with Caye Bank in Belize, represented at the conference by longtime banker-friend Peter Zipper…

Others we spent time with this week are off now exploring Las Tablas (our recommended budget retirement choice in this country, a small colonial beach town where you could live comfortably on less than US$1,000 a month)…Los Islotes (where Lief Simon has escorted a group to view his current development project)…RioMar and other recommended beach development options nearby Panama City)…El Valle and, farther afield in the highlands, Boquete (home to the biggest expat community in this country, one place outside Panama City where you could get by speaking virtually no Spanish)…

For such a little country, Panama offers a tremendous diversity of opportunity. It was a pleasure this week to help the more than 100 open-minded, forward-thinking, adventure-seeking in attendance at our conference begin to discover the possibilities firsthand.
