I’d say that this world of ours is a pretty great place to be.
I make the point in case you’re worried the opposite is true.
And, indeed, right now, it cannot be denied that we’re living through challenging times.
Still, things are not bad all over… and the current challenges will pass. We’ll push through this period of pause and get back out into the world to discover and appreciate anew up-close all it has to offer.
What can help in the meantime is a shift in perspective.
We’re here to help.
Start With This:
You do not need to put your dreams of a new life on hold.
Maybe you can’t get on a plane and put your own boots on the ground in the corner of our world that’s calling your name… but you still can be pushing ahead with your plans for launching and embracing an exciting, adventure-filled new life in a new country.
The key, as I’ve been reminding you this week, is making the right connections.
As you work to try to formulate and then realize your plan for where best to spend your time and money overseas, focus on making the right connections.
I’m talking about…
1. 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 expats, retirees, and investors face in the place where you’re thinking about spending your time and money…
2. Connections With Expats
People just like you who have already made the move to Portugal, Belize, Colombia, Mexico, France, Panama, the Dominican Republic, Thailand, Malaysia, 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 with both 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?…
3. Connections With Like-Minded Folks
More people like you who share your dreams and ideas but who, like you, haven’t yet made the leap.
Retire-overseas is an idea whose time has come. More people than ever are considering moving to a new country, 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, thousands and thousands of other folks do not.
More than 400,000 folks read these dispatches each day.
They all are thinking the way you’re thinking. They all 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. They could be potential travel partners. Some could become your new neighbors overseas…
4. 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 more than two decades ago.
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, to invest, or to 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… starting today… by making the right connections.
Where Can You Make These Vital Connections That Will Lead To Your Success?
This week we’ve launched my new Overseas Living Unlimited, a private group of like-minded folks eager to make their dreams of a new life in a new country come true… and just as eager to support others pursuing the same objective.
This is your best chance right now to connect with your tribe.
It’s harder today than it’s been in our lifetimes to get out and connect in person with our fellows. At the same time, if you’re dreaming of a new life in a new country, you need the support of like-minded folks more than ever.
So come meet them in our Overseas Living Clubhouse.
In this private space, you can connect and speak directly with fellow Overseas Living Unlimited members… as well as our entire Live and Invest Overseas crew.
We’re all there… every day… sharing real-life tales of adventure and, yes, of woe, too.
This private virtual Clubhouse is the hub of my new community, and it is open 24/7. We’re here around the clock, ready for you to tell us your own story… raise your concerns… ask your questions… post your own pictures and videos… and make new friends…
I check in regularly myself… and hope to meet you there.
After the pandemic restrictions have passed, our private virtual Clubhouse will carry on, of course… and will be complemented by real-life, in-person meet-ups. We’ll be inviting members of my new Overseas Living Unlimited to join us for private meetings at least three times a year… in some of our favorite locales around the world.
Overseas Living Unlimited is about access. As a member, you’ll enjoy direct access to me and my team every way we can manage… including, when global circumstances allow, in person at our live events. As an Overseas Living Unlimited member, you’ll enjoy not only VIP access… but also US$100 off the cost of registration for every single program on our calendar.
There’s one more big benefit of membership in my new Overseas Living Unlimited group that I want to bring to your attention.
It’s my personal little black book.
Over the more than three-and-a-half decades I’ve been living, investing, and doing business around the world, I’ve met a lot of people in a lot of places. Now, for the first time ever, I’m allowing access to the network of advisors and friends I’ve come to count on personally to have my back and my best interests at heart as I continue to spend time and money overseas. I’ve compiled the contact details for all of my top resources worldwide into a rolodex that we’ll share with every Overseas Living Unlimited member.
This is your chance to fast track your go-overseas plan… global pandemic notwithstanding.
I hope to meet you in the Clubhouse very soon.
