This part of the world will always hold a place in my heart for many reasons:

IMG_0428.jpg

In a blink of an eye, 7 years have passed since this picture was taken in Bordeaux, France. Southern France is well-known for its exquisite wines, food, and beautiful countryside. This part of the world will always hold a place in my heart for many reasons:

I met the absolute “love of my life here:)” The distance made it difficult, but to this day, she’s still a big part of my life. She’s my best friend and someone that I have the utmost respect for…in my eyes – a perfect human being:)

Many wealthy individuals on their death bed have the same regrets, I know this through personal experiences:
– They should have spent more time with their family.
– They should have spent less time at work.
– They should have made more of an effort creating, “meaningful life experiences” like exploring different cultures throughout the world. As opposed to, “accruing more wealth and material things.”
– They should have made more of an effort in surrounding themselves with better friends.
– They should have spent more time taking care of their physical and mental health.
– And the most important thing…finding “true LOVE.”

The time I spent in Bordeaux with this amazing women means more to me than “all the money on this planet.” This enchanting life experience of how we met, could have graced the pages of a romantic novel, to me – it’s priceless…and it’s ours. I’m a billionaire because I have this moment in time that will forever live with me.

There are countless books telling you, “how to make millions” but very few know the true meaning of…”Rich in life.” The vast majority of wealthy individuals that are my clients (and friends) are, “rich in material things, but POOR in real meaningful life experiences.”

Today, people chase material wealth, title and status. But consequently, the world is recording record amounts of drug addiction, suicide, murders, depression and inequality.

My take on the meaning of life is…”to create as many amazing life experiences that will allow you to die without regrets.” My bother was “rich in life experiences.” He explored the world, he loved and is loved by many, and his heart was filled with JOY:)

In a world filled with chaos, greed, and pain…one can still find happiness. It just takes a lot of “self-reflection” and making the effort in eliminating anger & low self-esteem. And, understanding “how to control your environment.”

I hope you find your happy place…it’s closer than you think:)

inspired by Winnie-The-Pooh: a poem i wrote about my brother and me…

sometimes we need to “stop” and “live in the present” before we get too old to disagree. when i was 6 my brother was 3…the only thing important to me, “to play and to have fun with thee.” no bills…no deadlines…no stress…just free

3 Common Misconceptions About Expats!

cd7f88f0-ebc2-48b3-a111-0658482c5ba1
3 Common Misconceptions About Expats!
They hate their country – that’s why they moved abroad.
This is the #1 misconception from the public! Expats that reside in a foreign city outside of their native country are seeking these things:
  • New life experiences because their native country has become Tiresome and BORING! They want a “change in scenery.” Expats want to immerse themselves into a foreign culture!
  • They are seeking “VALUE” in a better lifestyle abroad!
  • They want to be closer to other foreign countries so they can travel more!
  • They want better personal relationships and an active social life.
img_2619They’re Running Away from their Problems!
This statement is partially true, but we’re NOT Running away from our problems – we’re running away to seek adventure…to find ourselves…we’re in search of a better life! We will NOT SETTLE for a mediocre life…mediocre environment…mediocre people. Bottomline…we want to better ourselves in a foreign environment.
Expats are Poor – that’s why they live in these 3rd World Countries.
This is also a HUGE misconception! Expats living in 3rd world countries are FINANCIALLY INDEPENDENT! Their finances have given them the FREEDOM to live anywhere in the world, but many choose to live in poorer countries for these reasons:
  • The reason why these individuals are financially independent is the simple fact, “they know how to save and they don’t get caught up in buying stupid unnecessary material shit!” The many Expats I’ve met and befriended are very wealthy…they’re cash rich and have consistent monthly income from investments! They’re anything but poor!
  • We want to be in an environment where people are “warm” and “friendly.” It’s a fact that people in these poorer countries are more compassionate, they value a strong social life and personal relationships. People have more”respect” for one another…something that’s missing in most Western Countries! Bottom Line…we want to be around better people and a safer environment!
3
Through personal experience, I’ve found that individuals traveling internationally, live part time or full time overseas, are some of the most “amazing people on this planet!” They’re intelligent, compassionate, easy going, positive, and extremely HAPPY!!! If you value your life…if you value your personal happiness…if you value your future…look to spend more time in a foreign country. Your life will completely change for the best! It took a long time to get here and I’m a completely different person…I love who I’ve become:)
Live to accrue wonderful experiences…not material things.
