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

!!! IMPORTANT- UPCOMING SEMINAR ANNOUNCEMENT!!! I’ve been asked by many listeners if will ever do another Latin American “Expat Wisdom” seminar like the one I just held (off the gringo tourist trail) in Central America. Seems that word has gotten around just how fun and successful that one was, and now there has been a surge of interest for another. If you twist my arm I will consider it – this time once again with just 24 people, no more! So I need all of you interested folks to send me a very short email at so I can get things started. I am thinking about doing it in early December or early January; just a few days after the world ends according to the Mayan calendar. I’ll fire off the details as they come (not about the end of the world… but about the seminar).

-For the very first time in the over 180 Expat Files shows, I present a personal interview. It’s a discussion with a young lady who (along with her husband) recently sold everything up in the states in order to live as permanent expats in Guatemala. And after living in Antigua, Guatemala a little more than 2 months, she describes what it took for her and her husband to make the big leap from expat wanabee to expats-with boots on the ground. And by the way, they both attended my Expat Wisdom seminar, and we discuss how that event went too. Oh and I almost forgot. She said they had so much stuff to get rid of up in the states that they had to have multiple rummage sales, and in the end they came down with only 7 pieces of luggage. BRAVO!

-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.
