When I reached out to Domingo Silvas to be on the show, I thought, "I've traveled extensively, do I really need someone to tell me how to live in another country?" Then I realized how drastically different this is than the travel I might be used to, even long term travel.
When you set up a new life for yourself, you're effectively alone with no end in sight. It's intimidating if not scary to perform simple life tasks. You have to figure out everything you know, everything you might consider common knowledge all over again in a foreign place, in which you might not even speak the language. You're reinventing home and what home means to you, which is essentially your entire world. Suddenly, I realized how much more complex that is.
Domingo Silvas is a serial entrepreneur whose grown 8 companies, some into 7-figures. He's lived in several countries with his family and struggled repeatedly to come to grips with exploring the unknown. Today's he's the CEO of EscapeArtist.com, one of the internet's first sites, which helps over a half million people live, work, play, retire, and invest overseas. Living abroad can be an overwhelming thing to consider. For anyone dreaming to explore an ex-pat lifestyle, this episode is for you.
