#1- My January 2014 “Expat Wisdom” seminar is all set to go so. To check out the agenda and the signup details just click on the Latin American Seminar link on the top of the ExpatWisdom.com main page.
#2- A few more comments and real life stories for those of you who might be thinking of repackaging an old seminar or lecture idea and going on the circuit in Latin America
#3- Some advice for all expat wanabees and expat gonnabee first-world professionals (CPAs, chemists, X-ray techs, industrial engineers, etc.) hoping to land jobs at Latin American subsidies of first-world trans-national companies. Sure, these companies all want to hire qualified gringos and people with first-world training, and yes there are always job openings but….
#4- A word about the very top level, very expensive(in Latin terms) private universities. The ones that cost an unbelievable $5000 to $6000 a year(ha ha!) You’ll find just one or two of these top notch, very limited enrollment, schools in almost every Latin country and they’re pretty much the only universities graduating students that are on par with kids from the better first-world universities. Whereas elsewhere in Latin America, the other dozen or so Universities you find in any given Latin country are really no more than glorified high schools or worse.You'll find, as in the USA, quality seems to generally correlate with price.
#5 -Looking to hire a Latin trained professional for your new expat business? You need to listen to this… .
#6 -How certain unscrupulous first-world seminar companies are scamming gullible Latins while getting rich in the process (that’s the point right?). These guys have gouged people in the states (and are a huge part of the US government student loan debacle) and are being sued big time, and now they’re down here in Latin America where almost no one ever gets sued. Such a deal! Are these jerks smart or what?
#7- “AN EXPAT’S GUIDE TO FIRST-WORLD HEALTHCARE IN LATIN AMERICA”, That’s the name of my long awaited free report. It’s finally finished and will be available for a time at www.ExpatWisdom.com. Grab a copy and than compare how 21st century Latin American healthcare stacks up to your Healthcare in the states. Read it and weep! And remember the report is free(at least for now).
#8 -Follow the link on the main page at www.ExpatWisdom.com to schedule a private consultation with me. If you want to discuss the details of living, working, playing, doing business and/or retiring in Latin America, now you and I can talk about your situation one on one.
