Start Here | Moving Abroad With Children: Advice on Moving Overseas

Start Here

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

What You’ll Get From This Website

The Mark Twain quote above says it all.

As a reader of this website, you’ll discover how you and your family can live, thrive, explore, dream and discover by moving abroad.

You’ll discover how to take control of your life again; how you can free yourself once and for all from the stress of the modern day rat race; and why the conventional wisdom that says happiness can be found in a “safe” corporate job, a big house, a fancy car and debt up to your eyeballs is a lie.

You’ll learn how to travel, take a long-term family sabbatical, split time between your home and an exotic destination, make money overseas and even live abroad permanently… even with children.

The result will be a happier more relaxed and more successful you, a less stressful life for your family, and a world of new and exciting experiences and opportunities for your kids.

Who are we?

We’re just like you, two completely regular Joes:

  • Former 9-5 corporate drones
  • Fathers and husbands
  • Middle class upbringing
  • Public school educated

But since moving abroad we’ve also become:

  • Expats
  • Adventure junkies
  • Serial entrepreneurs
  • Travelers
  • Authors
  • Surfers and mountain bikers
  • Guitar players

And spend your free time at places like this…

Or this…

Not for a week each year during a rushed family vacation… But as a way of life…

Our goal is to empower you with the step-by-step knowledge you and your family need to take the leap — permanently breaking free from the grind of the rat race and thriving (living, working and raising your family) abroad.

We want to build a movement of 100 expat families in the next 365 days

The 9-5 corporate rat race and the comfortable suburban lifestyle don’t work anymore. You know it or you wouldn’t be here.

Unfortunately, too many families either dream of living abroad but don’t have a plan and thus never take action, or take the leap of faith and move abroad… But don’t have a plan and make big mistakes.

Moving abroad seems daunting. But it’s really not. It seems intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be.

We want to help you avoid the same mistakes we made in time, money, frustration, fear and doubt, by sharing with you exactly how we did it, and how you and your family can do it too.

In the next 365 days we want to recruit 100 families to take the plunge and move abroad. One hundred families… That’s it. If you’ve taken the time to get this far, you could be one of these 100 families.

Why do we care?

We believe the world is changing so rapidly that now you really can live, earn income and raise a family anywhere you want.

We’ve done it and so have dozens of our friends who are just like you. So we KNOW it’s possible.

Folks like Tyrone from Chicago who has five children and runs a wildly successful concierge business.

Or Assaf and Liraz from Israel who have four children and own a hotel and restaurant on one of the most beautiful beaches in Panama.

Or Steve from Canada who flies for a major airline and lives in a resort with his wife and son, steps away from a 5 km white sand beach.

Or Jamie from Florida who has four children and splits time between his mountain coffee farm and his beachfront, off-grid, solar-powered house.

These aren’t uber-wealthy families who won life’s lottery. They are regular families and regular folks just like you.

Who is This Site For?

In a nutshell, it’s for the stressed out, tired, frustrated and bored families who are ready to dream again, and then ACT on those dreams.

It’s for the potential rebel, radical and revolutionary in you who dreams about getting more out of life and is finally ready to make those dreams a reality.

It’s for people who are ready to buck the conventional wisdom (lies) that says family happiness requires;

  • Mom and dad in corporate jobs
  • Kids in public school or expensive private schools
  • Two cars
  • A suburban home mortgaged to the hilt
  • Mowing the lawn on weekends
  • A weekly trip to WalMart or Target
  • An annual 10 day vacation
  • Living with stress
  • Keeping up with the Joneses

It’s for families who want to live again, according to their own rules and who are ready to chuck off the status quo drudgery of accepted societal norms in order to enjoy a greater sense of family fulfillment and personal success.

What is Our Overall Philosophy?

Go back and read the Mark Twain quote above.

From the depths of our souls we believe that you will be far more disappointed by the things you dream of doing in life but don’t, rather than the things you do.

We’ve probably heard more than a thousand times from friends and colleagues some variation of the following:

“Man, I wish more than anything I could do what you do… Get out of this rat race…Live in another country… Have some excitement and adventure… Give my kids the experience of a lifetime… But with the job/mortgage/kids/school/debt/terrorism/[insert excuse], I’ll never be able to do it.


We loathe the conventional wisdom that has trained us to be unnecessarily risk averse…

We deplore the false comfort and security of a corporate job and modern consumer lifestyle that has destroyed our natural and healthy human desire to explore, discover and dream…

We can’t stand the propagandists who wrongly convince us that the world outside of our supposedly safe and secure borders is a dangerous place full of terrorists, murderers and other swarthy looking folks who mean to do us harm.

In general, we believe that moving abroad;

  • Is something virtually anyone can do in today’s interconnected world
  • Is a surefire way to get out of your comfort zone and experience an exponential increase in personal growth
  • Exposes children to different cultures and experiences that will give them the best opportunity for future success
  • Creates healthy stress… Remember, the stress experiences running in the rat race is the opposite of healthy. It’s toxic
  • Allows you to see amazing new business opportunities that others never will
  • Actually increases your chance of financial success
  • Will dramatically strengthen your relationship with your children and spouse
