I’ve always enjoyed teaching.
I worked as a public school teacher in Canada, and a private school teacher in Singapore. In 2014, my wife and I hit the road for a year of travel and adventure.
One year has turned into five.
Plenty of my friends ask, “Don’t you miss teaching?” Fortunately, I don’t have to. I’ve enjoyed speaking to different audiences around the world about the benefits of investing in low-cost index funds and ETFs.
Today, I spoke to a team in Dubai at The Entertainer. It’s exciting to know how this team of employees could build their personal wealth with regular savings, discipline, and a diversified portfolio of low-cost funds. I spoke for about 80 minutes, summarizing the components in my book, Millionaire Expat: How To Build Wealth Living Overseas.
This was my final talk in a 2-month tour.
Now I’ll be trading hotels, trousers and long-sleeved shirts for the nomadic lifestyle in our van. It’s a sharp contrast, moving from a corporate world to a Bohemian one, as we head into Mexico, Central America and then South America. But the variety (and especially what we learn from fellow travelers on the road) add a fabulous spice.
My wife, Pele, books my future talks. If you would like to book me for a corporate event, or for an international school talk, please contact Pele at: firstname.lastname@example.org
