Millionaire Expat: Speaking Dates in Dubai and Asia – October / November 2018

Millionaire Expat: Upcoming Speaking Dates in Dubai and Asia

My wife and I have been living in a van since October, 2017. We drove from Victoria, B.C, down the Baja peninsula. We then ferried to the Mexican mainland and explored this fabulous country for about seven months. After that, we drove south into Belize and crossed the border into Guatemala at San Ignacio. Today, we’ll drive into Honduras.

Unbelievably, people still want to take financial advice from a guy who lives in a van. During this odyssey, we’ve parked the van for weeks at a time to give money talks around the world. In January, I spoke in Amsterdam, Brussels and Dubai. We flew back to our van, in Guadalajara (yes, it was still there!) and spent a couple of weeks chilling around Lake Chapala. Then we flew to Hong Kong, mainland China and Switzerland for another series of talks.

Most recently, we flew out of Belize City to Nashville, where I spoke at the Teachers Pay Teachers conference. I then flew to Dubai again.

After driving into Honduras, we’re going to check out El Salvador, before looping back into Guatemala, and then Mexico again.

In October, we’ll fly out of Mexico for another series of talks in Asia:

If a talk is “Closed to the Public” it means that it is not open to the public, it is only open to the members of that specific community. If it is a business, this would mean it is only employees of that business may attend or people that the business has invited.  If it is a school, attendance is only open to the faculty and employees of that school; although it may also be open to students, parents or people the school has invited to attend. If a talk is “Open to the Public,” it means that the general public may attend, however, some organizations will request you book a seat and/or may charge an attendance fee.

    Andrew, some of your posts I cannot open as I get that stupid patronizing EU GDPR warning and get stuck. Obviously this post does open otherwise I couldn’t post here. As I am not residing anywhere near the EU I wonder what is going wrong here. For instance your item yesterday on the China trade war I cannot open

    Hi Andrew,

    Am sorry, what do you mean by ‘Closed to Public’? can we book seats for your talks in Singapore and attend? or the event organiser scheduled this meeting with the closed set of audiences already?

    Hi Andrew,

    I’d also like to join the event in Singapore. Is there anyway of attending.
