Earn & Invest Podcast Appearance – Panama Update

Earn & Invest Podcast Appearance – Panama Update

One of my favorite podcasts is the Earn & Invest podcast with Doc G (formerly the What’s Up Next? podcast). I’ve known Doc for a handful of years now. We met at FinCon years ago and I’ve been on his show on a couple of times since then. The first time I was on a panel to discuss the topic of whether passive income can really be passive. The second appearance was with my wife, Lisa, along with Amon and …

Reasons to Retire in Panama - My Interview on YouTube

Reasons to Retire in Panama – My Interview on YouTube

Back in early January, I had an opportunity to be interviewed by the wonderful Risa Morimoto from Modern Aging. She wanted to get my take on our time here in Panama. What do we like and dislike? Why would someone want to retire in Panama? I met Risa earlier this year during the shooting of our House Hunters International episode. She was the director and she’s just a great person all around. Risa’s got the personality and sense of humor …

House Hunters International (Panama) – Jim, Lisa, & Faith

Any House Hunters International fans out there?!  Of course, you are! Anybody a fan of Jim, Lisa, and Faith (that’s us!)?  Ok, fine – maybe not of me, but at least Lisa and Faith?  Hopefully, you are – that’s why you come to this site in the first place, right?! How about Panama?  Maybe even specifically Boquete?  Yeah, that’s us, too. But wouldn’t it be even more fun to squoosh all those cool things together and come up with something …

Finder Interviewed Me about the FIRE Movement!

I’m excited to share that I was just interviewed on Finder! If you’re not familiar, Finder.com runs the popular site that helps others make better life decisions.  Whether it’s finding a new credit card, buying a home, or getting health insurance. I was actually surprised to see how many different areas Finder provides help with.  They currently have over 50 categories with comparisons and guides.  On top of it, all the information is free, which we all know is my …

What's Up Next? - Geoarbitrage Podcast

Somehow I Got Asked Back on “What’s Up Next?”

Somehow I was able to get invited back on the “What’s Up Next?” podcast… who’da thunk it?! You’d think after Doc G and Paul Thompson had me on their “What’s Up Next?” show the first time around, they would’ve learned their lesson.  Not so much! To top it off, they invited my better half to be a part of it – maybe they were thinking that through the law of averages, Lisa could help bring me up a little more. …

Guest Appearance on the ChooseFI Podcast

Guest Appearance on the ChooseFI Podcast

I’ve been wanting to be a part of the ChooseFI podcast shortly after it began.  Jonathan and Brad launched the show at the end of 2016 and quickly took the FIRE community by storm! It’s a fantastic podcast helping to discuss the path to financial independence.  They bring on various guests to examine different aspects and strategies of reaching FI. What’s really great though is that they also focus quite a bit on enjoying the journey along the way.  I …

Guest Appearance on the What's Up Next Podcast

Guest Appearance on the What’s Up Next Podcast

The “What’s Up Next?” podcast is a little newer to the scene.  In fact, the first episode just came out in November of 2018. However, I’ve known Doc G from DiverseFI for a while and we finally had that opportunity at FinCon in Dallas last year.  It’s great to meet other bloggers in real life and Doc is no exception. He’s a great guy and we had some good conversation… and a few beers, of course! Anyway, a few months …

Guest Appearance on the Marriage, Kids and Money Podcast

I like Andy Hill from the Marriage, Kids and Money site a lot.  He’s a genuinely nice guy and I love that he focuses on finances as a family. I would guess that the majority of the folks we hear from in the personal finance community don’t have kids.  That doesn’t necessarily represent everyone tuning in, but the voices tend to be less. Enter Andy Hill.  Not only does he focus on improving family finances, but he loves to show …

My First FIRE Presentation on Geoarbitrage

Yup, you read that right… I did a FIRE presentation regarding geoarbitrage and our plans to move to Panama. Deanna (aka Ms. Fiology) asked me to do a talk for the ChooseFI local group in Northeast Ohio.  I’m a reasonably outgoing guy, but public speaking is a whole different ball game. I had never done a presentation like this before, but I decided why not push my comfort level and give it a shot?  So I agreed. Although my stipulation was …

Guest Appearance on the Everyday Money Show Podcast

Guest Appearance on the Everyday Money Show Podcast

Jason from the site The Wealth Hound also hosts the Everyday Money Show podcast. The first time I heard the show, I knew I wanted to be a guest.  He’s a natural at talking to people and you’d think he’s been doing this for years. We had chatted a little bit over Twitter and email and we finally had the opportunity to meet at FinCon this past year.  But believe it or not, we didn’t even have time to squeeze in a …
