After 40 years of working in corporate America, I found myself trapped. I was caring for my 96-year-old mom with dementia, and torn between the need to care for her full time, and the need to find a way to make a living in my 60's when I was no longer employable in corporate America.
In 2016, started teaching Marketing and Branding at 2 universities in Texas. I was stunned to learn that my bright talented students didn't know how to get a job when they graduated. So I wrote a lecture that grew up into a presentation and workshop and finally an Amazon best selling book BRAND YOU! To Land Your Dream Job. The next year I wrote my next best seller to address the baby boomer unemployment crisis - REINVENT YOUR CAREER - Beat Age Discrimination to Land Your Dream Job.
I appeared on hundreds of radio shows, TV shows, and podcasts, where I provided free career advice to thousands. I started a fledgling career coaching business, writing resumes and coaching professionals on job search techniques, to augment my Social Security.
But I was miserable! I was trapped in my own home, caring for my mom, hiring caregivers to sit with her while I was teaching or promoting my books.
All I dreamed of was running away from home and moving to a white sandy beach island in Mexico called Isla Mujeres, which I had discovered on an idyllic vacation several years before.
In the summer of 2019, I saw my chance - and I grabbed it. I found good care for my mom, and I booked a 5-week Beta Test - a trial run - to see if I could live and build my career coaching business from Mexico.
I hoped on a plane to Cancun, rented a car, and found an apartment with excellent highspeed internet - and I was good to go. I was able to sell and service my clients seamlessly, and grew my business past my wildest dreams, all the while living in paradise, and spending my afternoons swimming at a drop-dead gorgeous beach. My clients never even suspected that I wasn't home in Texas!
Finally knowing I could support myself and build the next phase of my career, I returned to Texas, and began the process of moving to Mexico. Just 2 months later, I arrived in Mexico for good with 3 suitcases and a dog on my lap, and I couldn't be happier.
It was the best thing I have ever done for myself.
It literally saved my life, and embarked me on a journey of rebirth and adventure and pure unbridled joy!
I wrote my next book The GrownUps Guide To Running Away From Home to share my experiences and insights into the journey of discovery.
But every day I met so many people wanting to do the same thing - but unable to figure out how to make a living overseas.
So I started researching all the different ways you can make an income while living abroad - in Mexico or any other country.
I interviewed dozens of people working happily in Mexico, as well as people looking for employees to work for them remotely.
And I interviewed remote work experts and immigration attorneys, and gathered lots of resources, tools, links, websites, and data to help job seekers start on your journey to successfully make a living while living in paradise.
So I have packaged all this knowhow and exciting information into a powerful training program to help YOU find your dream job in paradise!
With this valuable training, you will be armed with the knowledge, insights, and perspective to be able to effectively plan your escape to paradise with a work plan already developed and ready to execute.
