How to retire early overseas in paradise for pennies!!!

Yes!  You can live in exotic locations overseas for much less than you thought possible!!

Retire exotically overseas for half of what you thought possible in your home country?

What if there was a way, once learned, that could help you retire overseas in paradise for half of what you thought possible in your home country?

What if retiring overseas could radically transform the quality of your day-to-day life and potentially even allow you to retire years earlier than you thought possible?  Would you want to know how?

New retirees make the same mistakes over and over again.  There is a right way and a wrong way to move overseas.  Would you like to know many of these mistakes before you move overseas?  Well, then keep listening.    

I will show you video of my girlfriend Qiang and I traveling the world as I explain.  

My name is Dan and I left the United States in 2007.  I have been living in paradise locations all over the world for the last 16+ years.  I have lived in and visited 67 countries so far.

For the last 6 years, I have created over 934 YouTube videos as I travel the world showing you my favorite places to retire cheaply in paradise. I show people how to live a better life overseas.  

14,675,375 people have watched my videos that show how to avoid the mistakes that new retirees often make overseas.  Another 1805 people have become members and have access to hundreds of reports and my online courses. 

But first, let me explain why my financial disaster catapulted me into becoming the best person in the world to help you establish a better life overseas.  

I am not just talking about this.  
This happened to me. 

17 years ago, I had a dream to retire early and travel.  But my dream crashed and burned in the worldwide 2007 Market crash.  

Before the crash, my dream was to spend 9 months of each year in my home country and travel internationally the other 3 months of the year.  My retirement nest egg and my social security were set up to support this dream.

If my nest egg had grown at a normal pace for 10 more years, I would have been able to retire early at age 56.  I just needed to let it grow normally for another decade and my dreams would come true.  I didn’t need to save anymore.  I only needed enough income to survive until retirement.   

So I left the USA and started working overseas in 2007.  Later, I quit that job and began traveling the world working on my laptop.  

There is an old saying.  "God laughs when we make plans."  On that day, god was laughing. 

Disaster struck.  

So, I was traveling when the market crashed in 2007.  I watched my retirement nest egg drop almost in half.  I had no idea when it would recover completely.  Luckily I didn't sell anything while the market was down.  

But the market didn't recover as quickly as I hoped.  So, 3 years later, my retirement nest egg was still struggling.  I had expected a 10% appreciation per year while I traveled but the nest egg was still down 30%.  

So I started looking for a backup plan.  

My Backup Plan

One day the solution occurred to me while I continued to slowly travel the world. If I were to retire overseas for 9 months each year (instead of the USA), I may still have enough money to retire early.

A foreign retirement would allow me to save enough money per year, so I could still travel internationally the other three months of the year.

So, as I continued traveling the world, I started hunting for my favorite paradise for pennies location to spend 9 months of each year.

I began to keep track of the cost of living in each place. I began to realize that there were many paradise locations around the world where I could live for half (or less) of what I would need in the USA.

I also realized that I was not hunting for a needle in a haystack. There were literally 20 to 30 places around the world that I would be perfectly happy to call home in retirement. I knew that because I had already spent considerable time in those locations.

I lived all over the world. Sometimes I would live in one place for a few weeks, sometimes for a few months. I almost never bought round-trip tickets. I just kept moving slowly forward through the world.

I just wasn't into the US lifestyle anymore

I have never moved back to the USA.   But when I visit family and friends in the USA, I am just not into the lifestyle anymore.  The USA is all about malls, chain restaurants, and rush hour traffic.  Although I miss my family and friends, I prefer living overseas.

I feel lucky I was born in the USA.  I would not be able to live like I do now had I been born elsewhere.  Plus, the USA passport allows me to travel all over the world without much hassle.  

When I visit the US these days, it seems like everyone is angry about one thing or another.  I just don’t see that outside the US.  So I feel lucky that I have not experienced that turmoil over the last 16+ years.  

Plus, when I visit the US, I can’t believe how fast I hemorrage money.  Money just flys out of my pockets.  It seems like everything costs 3 or 4 times as much.  

Is  the world a dangerous place?   

But what I learned living overseas is more significant than just paradise for pennies. I learned that people are basically the same all over the world. They may look a little different, eat different foods, create different art, literature, and architecture, but when you scratch under the surface, we are all very similar.

They work hard and bring home their success and share it with family and friends. They take care of their neighbors and watch out for the young, the weak, and the old. The overwhelming majority of people in every culture are about love, integrity, fairness, and family.

Others may try to convince you that where you live is safe but the rest of the world is weird or different. They may even try to tell you that the world is a dangerous place.

I have not found that to be the case. The opposite has been true in my experience. Wouldn't I know?

Some people never retire.   

When I started traveling, I assumed that the cheaper places would have a lower quality of life. I assumed that the quality of life would be better in more expensive places.

But what I have found is often just the opposite. Sure, I have visited cheap places where I would not want to live. But there are also cheap places that I absolutely love.

In general, the more expensive places seem to have traded quality of life for visual representations of wealth. This often seems to equate to less personal time. Less time to develop meaningful relationships.

In the expensive world, people are often too busy chasing dreams that require buckets of money. They keep chasing dreams until they run out of time. Some people are never able to retire in the West.

They don't enjoy life long the way. They do not smell the flowers along the road as they walk through life. You will learn that there are parts of the world where life is just simpler.

Things are not as rushed. People are not so consumer-driven. There are places where people drink coffee from a ceramic cup. That is meant partly as a joke. But it turns out to be true. When you drop out of the rat race, you'll learn that life is more about experiences than rushing off to the next thing. 

Does Your Value Rise Overseas?  

There are doors that will open for you just because people are curious about strangers from a foreign land. I have often found it easier to make connections overseas than in my home country.

I often feel invisible in my home country. It is almost like people don’t even see me. But, as soon as the plane lands overseas, people seem to take an interest in me in a good way. When I smile at people they smile back at me, ear to ear.

I call the smile the international passport overseas. It seems to work everywhere. And when I am single, it is much easier to get a date with someone I am attracted to. I have seen both men and women from the West find higher-quality love overseas.

Am I better than the other gurus?   

It took me a decade of countless hours of research and a few hundred thousand dollars of travel to figure out how all of the pieces of this puzzle fit together nicely. That knowledge is accumulated in my written reports and my online courses.

But you probably don't have 10 years to visit each place (like me) do you? You probably need to narrow the number of places you visit before making a final decision, yes?

That is what is different about me. Many of the retire-cheap gurus settled in one place after investigating only 5 or 10 places. They can't describe the difference between the Philippines, Mexico, Ecuador, Portugal, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Eastern Europe, Central America, and South America.

Why? Because 10 different people that have lived in only 5 places each, is not the same as one person that has lived in all 50 places. They can't do the comparison if they haven't spent considerable time in each place.

I have lived in many of them for months, some even years. I have created walking tours, day and night tours, and cost of living tours. I show you by map, text, and video, what it feels like to be in each place. My written reports have video showing you what I’m talking about.

This consistent comparison through one set of eyes would help you greatly, don't you think? This will help you narrow the time and energy you spend in your search, yes?  

Continually improve  

Can I invite you into my world? Good. I have an idea of how we could help each other. You see, almost every aspect of my life and the information I share, is created by me in response to questions from people like you, our members.

Where we go, what videos we make, what questions we answer, what reports we write, and what courses we create, comes from member's suggestions. So I am asking you to be brutally honest and share your ideas.

This will allow me to continue to improve and to drive the new information in a direction that is most valuable to you and future members like you.

Okay, so here is what you get if you join today.

Retire Cheap in Paradise


Here is what you get if you join right now. 

Location Reports:  First, I would like to offer you a membership in my retire cheap reports. Each featured country has location reports that include text and videos of livability factors, cost of living, tours, things to do, restaurants, best areas to stay, transportation, plus other travel tips and secrets. Today, there are already 135 reports of my favorite retire cheap in paradise locations in the world. At $20.00 per report, this is already worth $2700.00. But I add new reports as we travel the world. But that is not all you will get.

Comparison Reports:  This is what makes me different. Since I have spent considerable time in all of these places, I am able to discuss the pros and cons of each country. I am also able to discuss pros and cons of different locations within countries. These are valuable because you learn what is different about each place when compared to the others. These reports help you reduce the number of places you need to visit before making a final decision. Retire Cheap Reports help you short list the locations with your desired amenities. The comparison reports help you bubble the best ones to the top. Today, there are already 19 comparison reports. At $25.00 per report, this is already worth $475.00, but I add new reports as we travel the world. But that is not all you will get.

Planning Reports:  After 16 years living outside my home country, I share hundreds of tricks to save you money, time, and aggravation, on a diverse set of topics such as: banking mistakes, minimalism, expat mistakes, spending mistakes, visa mistakes, real estate mistakes, world tours, finding love overseas, slow travel tips, travel fitness, overseas risks, and making money online. I pick which reports to write next based upon the kinds of questions I get from members. Today, there are already 46 planning reports. At $25.00 per report, this is already worth $1150.00, but I add new report as we travel the world. But that is not all you will get.

Slow Travel Reports:  After slow traveling the world living in 67 different countries, I share hundreds of tricks and tips to save you money slow traveling the world such as how to rent perfect apartments, how to save on international travels, how to enter countries without roundtrip tickets, how save money traveling on the ground instead of flying, how to pack, how to save luggage fees, how to save money on do it yourself tours, etc. I pick which reports to write next based upon the questions I get from members. Today, there are already 12 slow travel reports. At $25.00 per report, this is already worth $300.00, but I add reports as we slow travel the world. But that is not all you will get.

The Retire Overseas Course:  Once I had published over 200 reports in my membership, one of my members sent me an email, "Dan , there are so many eBooks here and so much information, that I don't know where to start?"  So, I created a course where members learn most everything I know about retiring overseas.  7 lessons of 30-40 minutes each that teach each stage of the overseas retirement journey.   Including an index into all of the reports so you know where to find more details when you encounter specific problems preparing for and/or living overseas.  This course could easily save you $3000 if you avoid some of the problems and aggravations I have experienced living overseas for the last 16 years.   I am including my Retire Overseas Course for new and existing members.  But that is not all you will get.

The Hobby Income Course:  For over a year now, a few of you have said to me, Dan, this all sounds good, but I need more monthly cash flow before I will be able to live my dreams overseas.  I spent thousands of dollars on online courses that taught me how to make money online.  But none of them taught everything I needed to know to generate an online income that would follow me all over the world.  So I had to invent my online hobby income stream myself.  So, as a way of thanking my existing subscribers for making my dreams come true, I am including my Hobby Income Course for new and existing members.  Based upon what I have paid for other online courses, this course is worth about $1200.00.   But that is not all you will get.

If you join now, you will get these three amazing bonuses.

Retirement Action Planner:  Your membership includes a copy of my retirement action planner. The planner describes how the world is changing and how you need to adjust to be ready for retirement. The planner includes how and when to save and invest for retirement, how to avoid dipping into your principal, how to pick a financial advisor, the best age to retire based upon your situation, a retirement calculator, how to budget before and during retirement, savings and investments, investment tips, how to pay off debt, various retirement vehicles, international tax havens, working in retirement, and more.  This book would sell for about $29.00. But you will not pay that.  It is just a bonus. Plus, that is not the only bonus.


Retire at Any Age with Almost No Money:  This Ebook teaches how the world used to be and how things are different now.  The world is changing. If you already have enough money for retirement, this book is not for you.  The book includes describing how to get ready for retirement at any age, by working really hard for 3 to 5 years and building a cash flow.  Then continue working at a slower pace as you slow down into a working retirement. This allows you to slow down but still keep earning money by leveraging time, money, and automation.  By staying involved and learning, you will not only have extra money, but you will keep your mind fresh.  This book is worth about $39.  But you will not pay that.  It is just a bonus. Plus, that is not the only bonus.


Maximize Social Security:  I studied this topic and came up with 8 important tips for you.  I even used one of the tips I learned to increase my mother’s existing social security check by over $1000 per month.  Plus, the increase was retroactive, so she received a check for more than $12,000 in back payments. This report would sell for about $9.00.  But you will not pay that.  It is just a bonus if you act now.
