-My Latin American Insider’s seminar is all booked up but if you’re interested in getting on the waiting list for the Guatemala event, email me with the word WAITING LIST in the subject line or better yet, go to and sign in with your email to get full details and updates as well as any info on last minute cancellations.
-Be sure to follow me on to get more new audios, blogs, stories and expat info as well as the big personal report, “17 Undiscovered Latin American Paradises”
-And now you can follow the link on the main page at to schedule a 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.
-We always talk about first world expats who start successful businesses down here. But what about successful expats who came to Latin America with much greater handicaps than we have? Those folks who come from other third world countries like China, India and the Middle East? These guys have cultural and language barriers that are not just small inconveniences but extremely difficult to overcome. But somehow they do it.
-Expat Orientals, Middle Easterners and people from India who come to Latin America DO NOT have the beloved “Gringo Advantage” as we know it- yet they do quite well as a rule and do much better in business then the local Latins ever do.
-How to get cheap repairs on your household items, or find specialty parts for all manner of home and industrial stuff like air compressors, washer/dryers, electric generators, weed whackers, chainsaws, espresso machines, pizza ovens, etc.
-More on Latin men, their infidelities and their mistresses, and why it’s obvious to us expats that Latin guys are some of the world’s best liars and criers. So, why do Latin women tolerate this twisted behavior? What choice do they have? (The gringo advantage rides again!)
