The Expat Files: Living in Latin America A guide to moving to Latin America, finding work, and settling in.

August 26, 2016  
Descriptions for THE EXPAT FILES SHOW #588- 08-26-2016 (Fri):
#1- How Latin con men, lawyers and even family members pull off real estate title scams and illegal land grabs: Today we have another true “boots on the ground” story         
#2- Latin business that have been ripped off or scammed by bad, larcenous employees often expose the fact, details, names and photos in the local newspapers. Thus the classified section can be use as a kind of rouge’s gallery- which is something a US employer could never ever get away with. He would be sued in a Nueva Jork minuto! 
#3- You can drive legally with only your US driver’s license for a while, but eventually you will need a Latin Drivers License: Here’s what Gringos and Expats need to know…
#4-These days most young Latin university graduates happen to be the very first person in the family to get a degree(shades of the 1960’s and 70’s back in the states). Surprisingly, many even have an illiterate parent or two! Because degrees and diplomas are so highly prized (again like the 60’s and 70’s) these kids are truly the golden boys and girls of the family. However the shame of it is, up to 90% of them get useless liberal arts and social science degrees where there are no jobs- so they never get a chance to work in their chosen fields…
#5- In Latin America you’ll also find you have freedoms that hark back to the good old days- the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s back in the states: Yes, it’s all good in that respect. In fact its far better than good. Today we have some examples that will surprise you...
#6-Consult with Johnny- Schedule a cell or Skype call: Set up a time to talk and I’ll help you sort out your own specific Latin American “PLAN- B”. Just write “CONSULT” in the subject line with a short list of questions/talking points to:
#7- Johnny’s next (and perhaps final) “Expat Insider” Plan ‘B’ Seminar will take place on Saturday, January 7th thru Thursday, January 12th , 2017. To get in on the Early-bird list email:
