Sorry Sir! – No Safety Net Here?
Often there is no safety net provided by companies, or not much, when it comes to early retirement overseas … and expats are left to fend for themselves. It is a sink or swim environment.
Walk the Plank Laddie – to the Sharks I Say 🙂
Lost at sea with the sharks slamming the boat and they thought the end was near …. That was the headline that caught my attention when the story of 2 lady sailors who had been lost at sea for several months were rescued … they were safe but just barely survived on their diverted route to Fiji – they never got there.
Financial planning is often like that especially nowadays when it comes to retirement planning and investment – even while at home, not to mention the shark infested waters of retirement planning while overseas.
But what if you could circumnavigate the sharks … there is a fellow who had done just that, survived cancer and retired in his 40’s and can usually be found basking around the world in some tropical place like Mexico or beyond.
