About This Class

(Este curso é ministrado em inglês com legendas em Português.)

Imagine se você pudesse escolher um país e depois se mudar e morar lá como um residente. Imagine se pudesse decidir, seis meses depois, escolher outro país para se mudar e fazer o mesmo novamente. Imagine sua vida profissional podendo continuar como antes. Imagine trazer seu cônjuge nesta aventura estrangeira. 

Esta é a vida que tenho levado nos últimos seis anos. Minha esposa e eu moramos em sete cidades diferentes, em três continentes diferentes. E adivinhe, eu sou um empreendedor, mas minha esposa trabalhou exclusivamente no mundo corporativo (leia-se: funcionária). Ainda conseguimos fazer com que toda essa relocalização e mudança para o exterior funcionasse. E neste curso eu te mostro como. 

******

Isto é para qualquer pessoa, empresário ou funcionário que deseje se mudar e morar em um país estrangeiro.

Este curso não lhe dirá como trabalhar online e depois lhe dirá "Agora viaje! Ele vai focar em tudo o que tem a ver com mudança, de modo que o guiará pelas etapas concretas que você vai precisar para se mudar pra um novo país, desde decidir sobre o país para onde se mudar, até descobrir o que fazer com seus bens, casa, carro, amigos e sua vida em geral, até estabelecer uma nova vida no seu novo país, com uma nova casa, carro, amigos, etc. em sua nova cidade/país estrangeiro. Este curso sobre mudança também o guiará pela logística (armazenamento, vistos, assuntos de pagamento, etc.) que você será obrigado a enfrentar quando se mudar seja para um lugar no exterior ou para outra cidade. 

 

Portanto, se você deseja se mudar, morar no exterior, viver em uma cidade estrangeira, ou simplesmente viajar mais, então isto é para você.

Transcripts

1. Introdução: welcome to my course on how to move and live abroad. As I give the introduction to this course, you're going to see different photos and videos taken from my travels. All of these pictures and videos were taken by myself or by my wife and these pictures and these videos will be divided up by different confidence that we traveled to. As you'll see we traveled Teoh three different conference. We've lived in three different confidence. I should say Way lived in Taiwan. We lived in Shanghai. We lived in Lucca, in Tuscany. We lived in Switzerland and in the US we lived in D. C and in Atlanta four bit. And now we live in Charlotte. Now All of this was while I was married and my wife and I traveled together before getting married. I was also living in different cities and working remotely. I lived in Portland, Oregon. I lived in Seoul, Korea and Switzerland. Many travelers, many people you see living abroad are, say, 19 years old and probably have cash despair. And even if they lose all their money and get kicked out of the country, they figured they could just fresh in their parents basement or something like that. Many of us don't have that luxury. Many of us are married and we're building a life, and we don't have a parent's basement to crashing. If every single itself having said that, I still do believe that everyone should be able to live somewhere else at some point in their life. Granted, maybe moving just to the other side of the river in your city would be easier. But if you're gonna live somewhere else, why not make it your dream location? You want to live in Bali or in Paris when karu for Cape Town or Sydney or ever in my feet. If it's your dream city, then it's something we're fighting. So this course helps you with everything you have to go through, and you can learn from what I've learned. And you can also learn from my mistakes so you don't make them. Here's what you will learn briefly in this course. First of all, you're going to get help picking which country to go to. You might already have a dream country or dream city or dream location in mind, but if you don't or if you're wondering between various different locations will discuss the pros and cons of various different places compared to where you live currently. After that will touch upon your life back home, presumably wherever you live. Now you have some sort of life, maybe a friends. You have a job, you have furniture, A of possessions. You have whole life. And so what do you do with this life back home? You can't just leave your possessions there. You can just forget about it. But you have to do something. You still need to prepare stuff before you go, you can just pick up and go right away. So we discuss what you need to prepare in terms of money in terms of your life, in your future location, in terms of your possessions, etcetera, etcetera. After that, we'll talk about what to do once you get there and the various things to take care of and to be careful about and keep in mind. And after that, their list of tips and tricks that I've come up with her that I've encountered over the years that I thought I should share with you. Now I should specify that I grew up in Switzerland So this means I'm pretty Swiss in that I'm not some flashy salesman type person, as you can probably tell by the way I speak. And as we go along the course, I'm not flashy. I'm not in your face. I don't have weird, cool gimmicks or anything along those lines. But what I do is I try to lay out all the rules and issues you'll be dealing with in a logical manner, and that's what I tried to do here. In fact, the list of topics recover if you know it's a pretty much chronological in the order that you'll encounter them as you confront this issue of moving abroad. So this means that you can use this course as a reference whether you're just thinking now about starting out on your venture, preparing for it or for in the middle of it already, Or maybe if you've already moved abroad, you have questions or issues or something along those lines. Hopefully, these lessons can always serve as reference At the same time, if you want to stop talking about this and actually make moving abroad a reality that you can follow my step by step instructions in this course. Now you have to forgive me. I'm a translator and a linguist by profession. And so I want to talk about travel per saved and travel the word travel The word comes from for those of you who speak Spanish, in other words, tobacco or by a French or travail, even in English. And travel comes from the workshop bail, which means a job, which means work, which trial and tribulation. And that's what travel originally Waas Because, let's face it, if you wanted to travel back in the day, it was work that had to do. Now this is a pole as opposed to tourism. Tourism comes from will ultimately from the Latin Tornado, which meant to turn. And this was literally because back in ancient Rome, people would take tours into what stage Greece, and they would literally take a tour of going up and visiting all the main sights and then basically coming back around in a circle to where they started. And this was tourism. And still, today if you think tourism buses, if you think tour guys, if you think tour groups, if using things along those lines, tourism is pretty much that is very passive, and you kind of do a tour or a turn of all the main sights. And then you come back to your hotel or whatever it is, and this is as opposed to travel. Travel does take work, but that's because the reward is so much greater with travel. You actually get to experience a new place, a new city, a new country. I get to experience how it is to live there, what the locals air going through, and you get to open your mind a bit more on experience, a bit more of the mentality there. So it does take a bit more work, but it's exponentially more reward now. Lastly, I should say that during this old course, I'm gonna mention many websites, some APS companies and brands, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. I'll mention it right now that I have absolutely no affiliation with any of them, and none of them are paying me anything to say what I am saying. This is the Willard Hotel room. Show you the view. There we go. That's there. And this'll is. I think the oldest will tell NBC. I'm just saying what I feel if I like something I like a certain company for like, a sort of brand. Then I'm going to share my experience with it. And I'm gonna tell you why I like it. By the same token, there plenty of companies that I don't like and that I don't recommend, and I'm gonna be open about that as well. But all of these are just because I've been dealing with them or I've had experience with them and I want to share what I've experienced. So I'm not going to keep any names out. But also, the names that I mentioned weren't paid to be put in there, and they're really wants that. I do have experience with having said that without any further ado, I will let you get on with the course. 2. 1 Do Que Não Se Trata Esse Curso: So let me start off with what this course is not and what you can not expect from this course. This course will not be teaching you how to start your own business. By the same token, this course will also not be teaching you how to become a freelance. This how to become a freelance and how to become a freelancer. In general, this course is not teaching you how to earn money online, how to be your own boss or anything along those lines. There plenty, of course, is out there that already do this. And in fact, things like that deserve their own course. In fact, I have courses out there on sales and marketing for freelancers. And if you want to be a freelance translator specifically, then I have a course said deal specifically with being a freelance translator. However, this course is not teaching you how to start your own business, how to become freelancer, because this course deals only with the tribal aspect. This course will also not teach you how to find love in a new place. Because this course just doesn't cover that on. You're gonna have to find another course that covers that I'm just trying to set the expectations straight just so you don't come into this course expecting to find me discussing something else. What this course is going to discuss is not how to set up your own business or how to become a freelancer. How toe work online, how to work for yourself or how to find love. These are important topics, and you can definitely find courses for them, including courses that I've taught myself. So please feel free to do so if that's more specifically what you're looking for at this point in time. 3. 2 Do Que Trata Esse Curso: However, first of all, this course is for freelancers on Diane entrepreneurs, people who work for yourself. But it's also for employees, people who work for a company. So if you're already making money as a freelancer, as an entrepreneur, if you're working for yourself already at this point in time, then that's great. What? I'm going to help you with this. I'm gonna show you the options. I'm going to show you the methods for transferring everything you do your work and your life to a new country and because presumably in the place you are right now you have a car , you have an apartment or you have a house and you have furniture and you have a TV and you have friends. You have a whole social life. You have your Maybe your business life revolves around where you are right now. And so what? I discusses how to transfer all of this to a new country, how Teoh be able to let go of everything you have and how to bring it over to the new country. So if you're an employee, actually, a lot of the same things will pertain to you because presumably you also have a car, an apartment, the house you know, a social life, etcetera, etcetera. However, I do have some employees specific sections, and they're called employees with capital employees, so they're easy to find if you want to jump around and find them. And this information in these sections cater specifically to your needs, because if you work for a company, there are obviously several options that you condone. Take because if you work for a company, you can see if you can ask to be transferred by the company. If you can work remotely, if you could take a sabbatical or if you could take some time off, or if the company can have you working some satellite office or even set up a new office. Or maybe if you just want to find a new job wherever you might be going anyway. There many various different options that you can follow and in the employee sections I have information that is targeted specifically toward you, the employee. So what does this course cover? It covers basically all the steps of living abroad, first of all, figuring out if you do want to live abroad if living abroad is something for you. Everyone talks about it, but maybe you want to see if this is something you really want to go through, and by the way I think it is, and I recommend that everyone goes through it at some point in time. It's actually extremely rewarding and not that hard to do. There are hurdles you have to go through, and that's specifically what this course is designed to help you with. But it's by no means to difficult, obviously stay easier for some than it is for others. That's just life. But there's almost always a way you can figure out how to do it. Eso this course helps you with figure out if you want to do it also helps you pick where you want to go, because maybe you're not 100% sure. Or maybe you think you are sure, but you need to ah, figure it out Exactly. Remember, traveling some place is not the same as living there. Also, there many other factors to keep in mind. This goes from the government to the language to the prices to this and that and the other Anyway, this also talks about how to set about moving your life once again about what to do with your possessions, what to do with all of your stuff here and how to find a way to transfer it over to the new place or just get rid of a here and get everything that you need in the new place. And, I mean, obviously here we're talking about not only possessions, but also group of friends, your business, your social life, activities, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. And that's what this course is about. That's the thing. Everyone pretty much everyone to a t that you talk to talks about how they want to move to a foreign country. Most of them will say, Oh, I'd love to move Teoh X y Z Someday I love to go there someday or something. I want to go live in this place or that and the other, unfortunately someday, very often never comes. And then these people end up not moving because life gets in the way. Right? You know, you have a job when you do you want to go, but then you get a promotion. Then you get a bonus and you get a spouse. Then you get a family, then you get this. That and the other. And before you know it, you haven't been able to live in a foreign country. You've been able to travel there during your vacation days, but you haven't been able to live there. Few people are actually able to take this. Take this leap. And this course aimed specifically to show you how. Because once again, it is so rewarding and it is possible. And so that's what I want to show you with this course. 4. 3 Quem Sou Eu: So who am I and who am I to show you? Well, that's a very good question. And so we should cover this. Well, I grew up in Switzerland, first of all, and my mother's Italian, my father's American. That's why sound the way I do. And I went to school in Switzerland and I went to college in the States, and then I came back to Switzerland and I was working there for bank because that's what people do in Switzerland. And I was working there for a bank and I really did not like it. And while I was in college in the States, I had a Korean roommate, and so what I did would, when I was working in this bank was I took my vacation days and took them to go to Korea While I was in Korea, I basically lined up as many interviews as I could through my old roommate and through whatever I could find. And luckily I was able to find a job there and ended up living in Korea for two years, working as a market research consultant. This was back in the early two thousands. It was a lot harder Teoh work online and to live abroad because there weren't as many. Resource is online, and you kind of had to rely. You know, I relied on my roommate basically and then taking my vacation days and going there in person to do everything else that was needed. Well, after that, I went to grad school, and then I got into commercial real estate. But this was 2007 which was the great time to get into commercial real estate. There's with a buddy of mine, and but what I realized in the meantime was that I really did like travel, and I like being in new places. I liked not feeling trapped in a place, and I really want to explore an experience living in new places as much and as often as I could, and, uh, and so that's what I was able to do. I'd always been translating for extra money when I was in school, and also when I worked, and so I decided to do more of that was freelance translator. And then over time I basically set up my own translation agency and during this time, so during the past five years or So I've been living in many different places from Atlanta to D C to Portland to ah, Switzerland to Italy to, ah, Shanghai to Taiwan. And about half or more than half of this time I've been doing this with my wife. And so there have been two of us that have been moving to all these places to Ah, you know, Shanghai, Taiwan, D C, Atlanta to Switzerland, to Italy, etcetera, etcetera. And my wife, by the way, is not an entrepreneur. She's not a freelancer, but she is an employee. So when we've been going to these places, we've been finding jobs for her now. Not all of them, because some some of these places we only lived in for a few months. And so we're gonna get a job and some we go and then see if we like it. And then we'd see if she could get a job. She basically she had a job in Shanghai, and then when we're in Taiwan, she was able to work for the same company, but as an independent consultant, basically, and so she was able to work remotely there. But right now I should mention also were in Charlotte, North Carolina, and she has a job here that she found while researching online. And then, obviously, she came here in interviews she interviewed here. She integrated Atlanta and various places, and this worked out. This is a new city to for both of us. We don't really know anyone here, and but we decided to try it out. And by the way, it's one of the most underrated cities. It's not the most underrated city that I've been in and then in the US that I've lived in. So that's briefly my story. And I just wanted to let you know I do work, and I have been working remotely, living remotely and living in different places, being whatever you want to call it, a digital nomad or a nomad in general. But I also have a wife who is an employee. She likes being an employee. I safely you know, someone who works for a company. She likes working for a company. She likes working for something bigger than herself. I mean, she sees how I work. I do a lot of work online, and I can go for days without speaking to someone face to face you know, besides the cashier at the store or something different people are made in different ways, and but I don't think that should stop you from living abroad if you have the chance. And so that's why I am covering all the options, including being an employee for living abroad. Now, having said that, I should also mention we don't have kids. So many people who have kids then think, Oh, I love to move abroad, but I have kids, so I can't. I do know plenty of people who do live this lifestyle, even with kids. And then there is well, it's extremely rewarding because their kids suddenly have experience and friends and languages and stuff from all over the world in a way that they could never get from just staying at home, including, I know a single mother from Australia who ah, when I move to Tuscany she had been living in the same place before us for six months with her kids and they've been going Teoh school there, and so it's definitely possible now, however, since my wife and I haven't personally done this, I don't want Teoh speak with any authority on that But I can and I will obviously give anecdotal information and any information I have for people who do have Children. But I don't want to pretend that I could speak with any authority as to that. And so that's why I want to be up front about it. I should mention also that a big reason why I wanted to create this course is that I recently attended the conference, the annual conference for translators in the States, and they had a session there on living abroad. And some people who had lived and worked abroad were talking about their experience and they were giving out some pretty bad information because many times they're just saying, Oh, you can go there and, you know, go there as a tourist and just work there and you probably have to leave the country every six months. But they come right back and keep working there, and this could be very dangerous if visa requirements now that working online and working abroad has become more prevalent. A lot of countries, they're trying to crack down on this and I do know people who have, you know, I know a guy who was in Korea and he got caught working without a visa and he got kicked out of the country for six months. Maybe if you're young, you don't care. And you kicked out for six months and come back. But if you're if you're relying on this for your living or if you have a family or spouse or something like that, then you know this isn't something you want to risk. So you do need to keep things like the visa and many other things in mind. And so I just wanted to create this course because I wouldn't want to risk that. People just go by that information and figure they could just work on a tourist visa anywhere they want. So anyway, uh, it was something that when I heard it scared me and I realized that maybe this information isn't out there. And so I thought, Who better to give it, then someone who has been through it? And that's one of the reasons why I'm creating this course. So without any further ado, let's get right down to it. 5. 1 Arbitragem De Preços: So, first of all, how do you pick where you want to go? Now? Chances are you've had various ideas of where you want to go. You're like I love to live on a beach in Thailand or love to live in Paris or love to live in Bolivia or something along those lines. And if that's the case and if you're dead set on a place than then, sure, by all means, that's where you should go. But it is good to keep a couple things in mind before you start off. First of all, this thing called price arbitrage, and this basically means good option is often to move a place where life is cheaper. So if you are working as a freelancer as an entrepreneur or something in your client's there in your current city right now that you can still be earning money from where you are saves us dollars. But you could be living in, say, I don't know Indonesia, where life is a lot cheaper, or Bolivia or something along those lines. And so the dollars that you are earning right now can take you farther and can help out in that sense. But on the other side. If you want to go to Germany, then chances are the dollars that you warning now won't take you as far in Germany as they do now. So this is just something to keep in mind. I'm not saying don't go to Germany, but just to keep this in mind, if you do want to go there obviously, if you plan on finding new clients where you are going or if you already have new clients where you're going, then you can keep this in mind as well. 6. 2 Poderia Ajudar O Seu Negócio: Another thing to keep in mind is that it might help you to go where you are. Because if you have an online business and your clients are in your general geographic area , well, then going to a new geographic area could definitely help your online business. Of course, an online business very often means that you can deal with people in any area. But being there physically definitely helps you confined new clients where you are. And if you're a freelancer for a notch burner or work online, you know in any shape or form, Then wherever you go, you might be able to find clients and look, even if you don't speak the language, chances are you're going to find foreigners. They're going to find expats. You're going to find people who might be able to use your business if you're following this course you're from with in English. And chances are wherever you travel the international language of communication, the lingua franca will be English, and so it will help out no matter where you go. Even if you don't speak the local language 7. 3 Você Conhece Pessoas: now a couple of things to keep in mind. Our first of all, are there any people you know in the location? This can be a very big help if you have any former classmates. If you have any friends, former coal workers, etcetera who you know in the location. Or maybe someone you know, Know someone in that location. If this is the case, then you probably want to get in touch with them ahead of time and you want to let them know? Hey, I'm thinking of moving there. Just want to let you know and eso It'll be great to meet up when we go there. If this is a friend of yours or if it's a friend of a friend, you can say, Hey, I look forward to meeting. You are moving their friend of so and so and just to get in touch with them. And then as the emails progress, you can start asking. You're like, Oh, by the way, I'm thinking of obviously don't say, Hey, can you find me a place to live or, you know, stuff like that? But you could start the conversation. You could say I'm thinking of living here in this place. Do you have any recommendations or, you know, we're thinking doing that in this. Chances are they'll be very happy to help. It's something exciting. It's something new when people love to help out people who are moving to their location to their place. So keep this in mind. People, you know, people you have a connection to, it can be a huge resource in on the place they're going to, and they're usually more than willing to help, and so you definitely should not ignore this. 8. 4 Segurança: another thing to keep in mind is always safety. A lot of different places have a lot of different ideas of safety and and so many times need to worry about. Not only is the place safe, but is that general area safe? Maybe the part of time you're going to or or that you're not going to are traveling to or etcetera etcetera. So it's just something to keep in mind. There are also many different types of safety. Sometimes the place is extremely safe, but you need to worry about bank accounts. Or maybe some place is not safe at all. But if you are a tourist, you're safer. Or maybe you're less safe or etcetera, etcetera. Anyway, these are things that are easy to find out, but you should not neglect them, and you should figure out what the general safety situation is wherever you might be going 9. 5 Visto: Another big thing is visa requirements, and we'll be touching on what we touching on all of this later. A bit more. But this is all something to keep in mind when you're picking where to go that if you're looking to work in that place, depending on where the situation is, you need to keep visas in mind. And don't neglect this. There's usually a way to go about this and no matter where you want to go, so if you are set on a one place, then then there will be a way to figure it out. But it can get very complicated as well. If you're trying to pick between two different places and one of them with whatever citizenship you have, is no problem working there while another one might be a hassle. We'll just keep it in mind because that my shift, the balance to the to the place where life is easier 10. 6 Não Se Esqueça: So just keep in mind that travel and living are very different things. And, for example, for me, I'm half Italian. I love traveling to Italy, but living there can be an issue. There are many issues with bureaucracy, with how things work in terms of just even in terms of using the post office from day today . But then, you know, in terms of setting up your electricity in terms of this, that and the other there many different things you need to keep in mind when living in a place. It's very different from just traveling as a tourist. If you love going to a beach somewhere, that doesn't necessarily mean you want to live. Their beaches are great for a few days, but, you know, after a week or two, like what else are you going to do on a beach? I I really don't like beaches. I find them boring, but I might not be the case for you. Maybe you love beaches, and if you're a surfer than chances are, you do. And so maybe someplace you want to seek. So just keep in mind, though, that living in a place and travel are different. so you kind of need to wear different glasses and look at them in a different way. When you are trying to pick where you go, it isn't necessarily just the place you want to travel to, but a place you want to live in as well. 11. 1 Casa: Okay, so now let's say you've decided on where you'd like to go and you're getting ready. Teoh, look into the location. Look into all the details, etcetera, etcetera. There quite a few things you need to get done before you leave. And eso here, we're going to start with what to do with your life back home. And as I mentioned before, you have constructed a whole life for you, wherever you are right now and so you need to learn how to solely deconstruct it. Or at least put it on pause. Put on hold while you go abroad and their various things to take care of. So first of all, let's start off with your house, your house, your apartment, your condo, wherever you might be living right now, you might own it. You might be renting it, etcetera, etcetera. So their various things you can do No. Obviously, if you are renting it or even if you own it or however bear often you can rent it out or sub let it, and so you can definitely look into this. If you know you're going to be gone for six months, if you know you're going to be gone for a year or a set amount of time that you can see if you can find someone to rent it out for that amount of time, at least you're guaranteed ending come for that amount of time. And at least if you'd gone for six months, you find someone who can rent it out for six months that you don't have to worry about it later on. Another option is Airbnb. The good thing about Airbnb is that you can probably get more money for it. I mean, depending on what occupancy will present a document. See, you have. But the bad thing is that you need someone to manage it. You can't do it while you're abroad. You need someone on the ground to be able to handle stuff to send the cleaning lady in between Airbnb guests to ah, handle any problems that might come up etcetera, etcetera. Very often they're services that do this. I know for my parents, I was able to put their place up on Airbnb in Switzerland so that they could go stay in the States and yeah, they're in our small town in Switzerland. There happened to be a service that handles Airbnb rentals so they're more prevalent than you would think. You can look into that. You can see if there's a service that will handle any problems that will come up dropping off the key, picking it up, cleaning in between guests, etcetera, etcetera and see what their prices are and see if that's worth it, and that could work out as well. Another option is to just have a friend look over it. Maybe you're not too worried about having to rent it out or about the loss of income, but you shouldn't just leave it there. You shouldn't leave your apartment, just sitting there with no one to look over it. So you know I have a friend, someone you trust to look over it. Maybe just once a week, go over and check out the apartment. Just make sure everything's fine and they're no issues with it, etcetera, etcetera. You'll also probably want someone to check the mail, and so this friend could do that as well. And obviously, as I mentioned here, you could have some combination of all of this and, for example, the apartment that I mentioned the Airbnb one for my parents had the person handle the Airbnb. We have Airbnb guests staying, but obviously they don't have access to the mailbox. And instead we have a family friend, basically, who passes by twice a week to check the mailbox and see if there's any mail for my parents . So their various options you can do the main thing you want to avoid here is to not do anything. First of all, it sucks The first time, I one of the first times I did this the first time I went to Taiwan, I ended up paying double rent. I was paying rent for my place in Portland while I went to Taiwan for three months. So yeah, that was a very quick way to during my bank account. So you do want to find a solution to this, and that's why you should be starting while you're still back home. This should be one of the earlier steps you take to figure out what you want to do with your house with your apartment with your condo, etcetera, etcetera. If you can time and writing. If you're just renting it out, then just leave. At the end of the lease, and then you don't have to worry about this. But if not, you should try to figure out some combination. Even if you're not too worried about the loss of income, at least have someone who has access to your apartment has a set of keys and can check up on it every now and then and also check on your mail. You also don't want male accumulating, by the way, while you're gone, because the best way for would be robbers and thieves to know that someone's not home is a whole bunch of mail in front of the front porch. That hasn't been collected yet, so he died in mind as well. 12. 2 Carro: another issue is your car. If you do have a car assuming here to the various options you can. First of all, you could rent your car out as well their services online and websites that help out with that. Or you can just do it through a friend of a friend. And, you know, basically rent the car out for six months for a year or something like that and let someone use it for a certain price. Or if you want, you can sell it because you'll always be able to get another car when you get back. And then at least I give you some liquidity and give you some cash you can use right now. If you don't mind selling your car again, you know this is very personal. Depends on your personal situation, what car you have, how long you're leaving for how you feel about the car, etcetera, etcetera. So just look into it, either renting it out, selling, also loaning it to a friend if you don't need the the cash right now, if you're not too worried about that part, then find a friend who might need a second car. Maybe just doesn't mind having one has a garage space because it's better to loan the car to a friend who at least can started up every now and then, then to just leave it in your, uh in your garage or somewhere. Which brings me to the to the last option, which is that's the park it and leave it there. I don't really recommend this for various reasons. First of all, if you're gone six months to a year or you know however long it might beat, it's not really, really good to leave the car there without anyone turning it on or checking up on it every now and then. I know some people have recommended, like taking the tires off and putting it up on blocks so that it doesn't mess with the tire pressure, etcetera. I wouldn't really recommend that, either. I I think it's a lot better. Chances are you do have a friend somewhere who won't mind having an extra car. You know, just say you can use this car to go to the grocery store, whatever if you want it while I'm gone. But I'd appreciate it if you at least turned it on once or twice a month, or whatever it might be. So anyway, it's just something to keep in mind. It will be a bit easier than the house, but it's also something you should look into and that you should make a plan for before you leave. 13. 3 Bens: so your other possessions now your other possessions will include furniture. They'll include your big screen TV. There include your appliances. They'll include. I don't know your your books or a bunch of your clothes. Maybe if you don't need them. So what you gonna do with these were various options again, and they're easier than the other two above eso. I'll go through the options. One of them is storage. You can have a storage space. Chances are you will need storage space for some stuff at some point. So, uh, you know, you can see whatever fits in there, and then you could just deposit it there and not deal with it. Or it could be a great reason to get rid of stuff you haven't been using for years. Have a garage sale, Andi. These days I think it's more mawr online. So long Craigslist and offer your stuff either for free or for cheap. I've done this very often, especially in the States regs. This is one of the best places to do this. You just, ah, go up there listed, and chances are you'll find a bunch of people who might be interested in depending on what you have and what you're getting rid of. You can also check on eBay. Amazon is also another place you can check up on. Don't forget also the check with Friend's. Write it up on Facebook or wherever and say, Hey, anyone want a big screen TV or a couch or something along those lines, and chances are you'll find someone you can try charging a price If you start early, you can try charging a price early on, and then, when it comes down to it, say maybe a month before you're leaving. If you haven't found anyone to buy your stuff, then start offering it for free. Let's see how you feel again. This is this will depend on you on your situation. But just keep in mind that this is something else that you will have to deal with at some point. So see which best fits you're your lifestyle and your possessions and and figure out which one works. One thing that I do not recommend that you can obviously do, but I don't really recommend it. And thats shipping all your stuff. A lot of people will feel Oh no, I'm really attached to this, You know that My furniture to my bookcase, to my CD collection to my TV to my this, that and the other. And so I want to ship it all over. I generally don't recommend this for various reasons. First of all, whenever you're moving somewhere, you really don't know how permanent the move is gonna be, which means you might end up after a few months moving right back, in which case you're shipping stuff twice for no real reason. Second of all, no matter how attached you think you are too stuff, you'll be fine, even if you get rid of it. It's very rare that you get rid of it and you really miss that couch you had, because you can always get a new couch wherever you go. In fact, chances are you could get a new, nicer couch. I really don't think shipping stuff. It is very rare that I find it worth it to ship stuff, especially for going for three months, six months a year, something along those lines. I think it's better to put stuff in storage and then just buy new stuff wherever you might be going. Chances are you confined stuff that's cheap. Or, you know, if you take your time, you can whittle it down to the bare essentials, and it's a good excuse to get rid of stuff you don't need. So I think in terms of shipping stuff, leave that as a very last option is also, by the way, extremely expensive, usually to ship stuff. And it takes a long time. And, you know, stuff could get damaged in the process, etcetera. So try not to be to attach to your possessions and see if you can do something else with them and see if you can save on shipping costs. 14. 1 Transferência: with. So for all of you employees, your people working for company right now, I'm sure you're asking yourself a couple questions. You're probably wondering a couple things because you're saying, Well, it's not that easy for me. You know, I can't just pick up and leave. I can't just hand the keys off to a friend and put put my stuff into storage and just go because I have a job and everything rotates around it. So that's why I want to go through a couple options of what you can do as an employee right now. So let's start with asking to be transferred. I don't know where you work. Obviously, this depends where you work in your situation again. But does your company have a branch in a new city in a different city, in the different countries? More specifically, where you would like to go someplace you'd like to go? Does your company have a branch there? If so, find out what they work on, maybe the branch in the city you want to go to. You want to go to London and they work more on finance arm or in the European market. So try to make yourself marketable for this. If this is something you know you're interested in, brush up on those French language skills that you learned in college. Or try to see if you can make any local contacts you. If you have any local context through friends of friends, try to see if the London office deals with finance. Then try to brush up on your finance skills. See if you can take a some night course or online course or I don't know something. Help you out with what you're doing and to make yourself more marketable, because at that point in time you can say, Hey, look, I'd love the opportunity. If I've saw that there's an opening or if there is an opening, I think I can contribute because I have A B and C skills in this way, your company is not doing you a favor, but you are a good option for the company, especially if they're looking for someone new in that new city. They'd much rather higher internally than externally, and so you're giving them the option to do so so you know. And so if your company does have an intra company job postings or stuff along those lines. Definitely keep track of those because they'll present a good opportunity to be transferred . 15. 2 Trabalhar Remotamente: you can also ask to work remotely. Now their various methods for this, For those of you read books like the four hour workweek. In stuff like this, it touches on some methods. I don't know again, this very much depends on you, but basically how it works is you condone. Start off by showing how you can work from home. Take some sick days. Usually people say in the middle of the week, because if you take a six day on a Monday or Friday, people assume you're having a long weekend. So take some sick days in the middle of the week and perform well. If there's some project or something that you're working on, you're supposed to finish the third quarter projection analysis, spreadsheet and you have all week to do it. Take a sick day on Tuesday, calling six. Say sorry, I can't do it, but I work from home, and then when you come back in on, say Wednesday morning, you have done a good job and it shows that you are a good worker and you can start talking about how you work with a well from home, and then you can leverage that to be able to work from home more often and possibly half a week at a time, a whole week at a time, maybe work remotely indefinitely and make that the main way. You worker? I don't know. It really depends on your situation. But you can use some variation of this in order to work from home more often and hopefully be able to leverage that to a more long term solution again. This has been dealt with in various books and other places. It really depends on your situation because, yeah, for some of you, it might not be viable. But yeah, if you think it might be, then why not try it out? Another thing is, to quote unquote, blame it on a spouse or another family member who's moving abroad. If you can say, Hey, look, my wife, my husband is moving to London and like to follow him or her, but what are my options? So what you can do is at that point, go back to ah, if your company does have an office in London say, Look, my spouse is moving to London, and by the way, you know, I do speak French and I could do bubble blind. I saw our London office has an opening. Do you think I would be a viable option for that? And that very well could be the case. You never know until you check. Try to figure out if maybe something like that could work for you. Now, another option is to offer to open a new branch in this new country. If you I imagine this would work mostly with smaller meeting businesses. And you know, I haven't expanded abroad, or at least having expanded to the country that you're targeting. And what you could say is Look, my spouse is moving to London or were planning. I moved to London. Why not open a new branch in there? I think I could probably open a new branch, or at least for our department there and wait. We can establish a whole new clientele there. My sister did this by the way. She was based in London and decided to ah, move to Atlanta. Her company did not have a branch in the U. S. Obviously, they would not have chosen Atlanta had have been up to them. But she said, Look, I think we can open up a new branch of the company, we can open up the U. S. Market, which we don't have yet. And I think it could be a good addition to our to our company. And so that's what she did. And it ended up being very successful. And I think within two years, pretty much all their growth was happening. The U. S. And it was more than 35% of all the company's revenues. It ended up being very good for the company itself on bond. In the meantime, my sister got to move to Atlanta, so see which one of these options works for you. 16. 3 Licença: so another option if you don't think these other two can work or if you're trying them and they don't seem to work or something along those lines is toe asked for a leave of absence ? You can ask for leave of, say, six months or a year, or however long you're gon. And by the way, a leave of absence can also mean a sabbatical. Certain companies have various options for before you, depending on the company, depending how long you been working there. So just see what sounds best or what works best for you. But you condone once again quote unquote, blame it on a spouse or another family member or just asked to leave and say, Hey, look, you know, I like to leave a vax absent six months to a year, and you don't have to pay me during that time or something along those lines. But I would like a job when I come back eyes. It's something that could work out on, you know, see what happens and see what happens with your boss for their company on what they say. By the way, you can also use this time to look for a new job or start a new job and without telling anyone. Basically, when you go to this new city, so you're going to London while you're there. Nothing really stops you from looking for a job there. And if you do find one in the meantime during your six months there, then you can decide. Hey, do I want to stay here and keep and keep this job here in London? Or do I want to go back to my old job? Or you can use that time to start a new job, maybe start your own thing online and see if that works out or something along those lines and see if you can make something of a go of it, you know, within those six months or a year or however long you're gon. 17. 4 Largar Seu Emprego: Now, the last option here is to quit your job and find a new one. If none of these come work out for you, you always have the option of quitting your job and find a new one. Obviously, this is something you want to start working on ahead of time. And so, yeah, this is what my wife did. She started looking for a job ahead of time here in the States. And as I mentioned before, she interviewed in various places she interviewed in D. C. In Atlanta in Charlotte and the one in Charlotte happened to work out, and actually, it turned out great. She's and job she loves. And so if you really want to move abroad, try starting to look for a new job and see what you confined. And maybe you can quit your job that you had before for this new one. And who knows? It might even be a step up. I mean, hell, that's international experience and experience in a new country, you know, city. It might not be all that bad for your career. So all of this is just to show you that there are quite a few options and I know when you work in a company, you feel that there aren't that many options. You have to stay there and very often. What a company will do is if they ever catch wind that you were thinking of leaving. They find ways of attracting you back in, usually by means of a bonus or a raise of some sort of something along those lines. So you really need to evaluate it for yourself. I've seen too many people, except that bonus, except that raise and not be able to move a broader. They're going to a business for themselves or something along those lines. And quite frankly, I do find offering a raise or something along those lines akin to extortion. Almost, I mean, not really extortion. But, you know, it's kind of a payoff for you to stay off in the company, and it is a payoff. You get that money, but evaluate for yourself. If this is something you really want to do, then stay strong. I just wanted to show you that there are quite a few options here, and so I think they're worth looking into. No matter what your situation might be and I would try looking at a bit of all of them, you know, maybe a combination of them and seeing what can work out. And you might be surprised. You never know. You might be very pleasantly surprised. 18. 1 Procure Um Lugar: So obviously before you leave, as I mentioned before, there there are some things you need to do. You can't just pick up and leave tomorrow because they're things to take care of. I've already covered what to do with your housing, what to do with your car, what to do with your possessions. You obviously also want to say bye to your friends and let them know. But you can do all of that on your own time if you're an employee. I also cover the fact that you need to see what to do about your job and how to go about the transfer. In that situation, However, I thought I should cover a couple other things that you should look into before you leave. First of all is finding a place to live. You really don't want to wait until you get there to start your search. You want to hit the ground running, and ideally, when you could do is already have a couple appointments in place. For when you first arrived there, I find this is a great way to First of all, get the lay of the land. If you are spending your first couple of days looking at different apartments at different houses, and you're looking at 56 different houses a day. This that's the best way to go all around the city. It forces you to see all different parts, all different neighborhoods. And so really, you really get a feel for this new city that you're in. It's also a great way I find to get over jet lag because you have stuff to do as soon as you get there. You have no excuse to just start napping in the middle of the day. I think you should set up its many appointments as you can. Obviously, when you're setting up the appointments, don't do too many. This really depends on the city that urine etcetera. But usually I say, do say three per day and no more, because you never know what the situation is in terms of transportation in terms of traffic or something along those lines. So just do that. You can also always add stuff on while you're there. Every time I've looked for places with my wife, when we're just driving around the city or just going around, we'll see signs that safe release for rent, you know, stuff like that and we can just walk in and check it out, so that shouldn't be a problem. But set up, I would say three appointments per day for the first few days that you're there, because then it will give you a chance to check it out and get the lay of the land. Look for me and my wife. When we came to Charlotte, that's what we did. We ended up actually going with the first, the absolute first apartment we looked at when we saw it online. We we really liked how it looked, and so we That's why we that was the first appointment we set up. We ended up looking at all the other places anyway, and it definitely wasn't a waste because once again, we got a good idea of what else was on offer of the layout of the city. Every time you look at a place, people will talk to you about what's in the neighborhood and on and what's good, what isn't etcetera. So it's definitely not wasted time, and so that's usually my recommendation. But either way, regardless, definitely start looking for a place to live before you leave. Check online. Check local real estate listings. Usually any search can give you an option, and you can start checking that way. 19. 2 Transporte: Also, you want to figure out transportation this new place they're going to do they have good public transport. Can you walk from place to place? Should you rent a car when you first get there? Do they have car sharing? This is like Zipcar and other options. If so, you want to figure it out ahead of time. Really? This depends if you're going to Europe many times, you don't need to worry about a car. In fact, it's better without a car. If you're in the middle of a city, you could just walk around or rely on public transportation. If you are relying on public transportation, get an idea about it ahead of time. You know, go to the websites and see what you need. Maybe you start off with a weekly pass, and that way you don't have to worry about getting tickets each time, and you can go anywhere you need in the city. Check out the map, see how easy it is. Teoh go around and it gives you gives you an idea of how to handle transportation 20. 3 Transferências: also figure out payments. This is something you need to do, especially for the beginning. Once you get there, you look you can change money in the airport, and that's great. But you want to make sure that you have enough cash on hand. You also want to check out what the situation is Onda how you're going to be getting cash out, at least for the first couple weeks of the first month. If you are able to set up a bank account there than from that moment on, that's how you can deal with cash. Otherwise, you know, figure how you're gonna handle this so you can usually find bulletin boards and groups for expats that have a bunch of people who live there who can answer any questions. Or chances are they've asked them already and they have the answers to them up there and you'll find for a lot of these points I mentioned. If you can find a group of expats living in the place that you're going to, then it will be very useful in terms of asking questions and in terms of getting answers. Another thing you want to figure out his payments going forward. Uh, if you are working for yourself if you're working on line. If you're an entrepreneur, maybe you're receiving payments directly through a bank account, and or maybe you're receiving a check or maybe receiving it in person. A lot of these won't work if you're abroad, and so you need to try to figure this part out. PayPal is a great option. Skrill is another option. Or if you could get a local bank account, see what? See how that works and how hard, or how easy it is to get a bank account wherever you're going. Or maybe you still have access to your bank account and the fees aren't too bad. And so you can try doing that. Or what you can do is have your local bank accounts where you are right now, and as long as you have access to it abroad, you can use out of the beginning. And then if you see that the fees air too much, then you can find other options. Once again, A Google search and finding ah local group of expats abroad can pretty much answer all these questions 21. 4 Outros Pontos: Another thing is WiFi. Figure it out. You're definitely going to need it wherever you go and coffee shops there find most places in the world have coffee shops with WiFi, and it's usually not too much of a problem. Go there by a coffee and then you get access to WiFi. You can do whatever you need. Most places also have the portable, my fight thing or whatever they're called supportable. I think you could carry around That gives you access to a WiFi no matter where you are. And usually you can get these in airports on. And they were pretty good deal, you know? So maybe when you land there, go to the airport and get it for a week or so until you figure out whatever your situation is. But you do want to make sure that you have access to WiFi because you definitely will need it and where you are right now, it's not an issue because you yourself one probably has data. But remember, wherever you are going, that might not be an issue. So keep WiFi in mind. So once again, for all the stuff I mentioned here, you can go toe online groups and bulletin boards. Find out what you can look for expats in X y Z City. Look for foreigners living in X Y Z state of your country or whatever might be, and chances are you'll find groups that can that can help you out. With this, I also recommend finding meet ups. These are easy. You could go to meet up dot com. Another one is inter nations dot ord. I'll get into this more in detail later on, but if you can find some meet ups, then as soon as you arrive, you can start attending these meet ups, and this lets you ask your questions right away and also lets you start establishing a network right from the get go. So I recommend trying to find these before you get there, but definitely try to search for groups of foreigners. Many times it's takes the guise of Facebook groups or just online bulletin board groups, etcetera, etcetera, where people answer and ask questions. Another tip I have, and something I think you should keep in mind is that everything you plan will take double . You'll have to spend double that's double the time and double the money. And so all these plans in terms of finding a place to live, finding transportation, figure out the payments. All this stuff once you get there, I mean, they're just stuff that you that you haven't accounted for. They will be things. There were issues with the language, with the different currency, with the transportation with a different way of living life, etcetera, etcetera. So just account for double the time and double the money. Look, if that's not the case, then you'll have a pleasant surprise, you know? And if it ends up taking lists, But when you're are making your plans and when you're trying to plan out how many days will need how much money you'll need to do stuff, figure it out, figure out the number of days, come up with a plan, and then once you've done all that, just double it. And that way, at least you have your margin of error and you're safe, and you really never know what will come up in a new city. And the best way to account for it is just to give yourself plenty of cushion 22. 5 Visto 1: So now we should take a moment to talk about visas by visas. Obviously, I don't mean the credit card. I mean, the temporary permit to enter a different country kind of card visa is something that you may or may not need to enter into a different country or to stay there for a certain amount of time, or to be able to do certain things in that particular country. And visas are not something you should be ignoring, but more and more, you should be taking them seriously, or at least taking them into account when you do go to another country, especially when you're moving there for any determined period of time. So first thing you should do with visas is to check to see if you need one for the amount of time they were staying. If you're planning on going to a country for, say, three months or six months, then it might be very different from going as a tourist investing for a week or two. For example, I and I might have this wrong, but I believe if you are from the u, you can come to the United States to travel for no problem. But if you stay longer than three months or I think it might be six months that you definitely need a visa. And you know you can't just stay indefinitely and do whatever you want. And this goes for every country out there pretty much you need to check to see if you need a visa. And at what point in time you need a visa if you need it. After two months, one month, three months, six months, etcetera. This is usually quite easy to check. You could check on any embassy website and you can find the information. Now if you do need a visa and it turns out that you need it, definitely get it. You should check what your options are. Usually you can get either. Yeah, tourists means up their student visas. And this will really depend on your situation. If you're planning on studying a local language or something along those lines anyway, they look into programs like this. When I first went to Taiwan, this is what I did. I know I want to study Chinese anyway. And so I signed up to be a student that I got a student visa to stay there. Otherwise, sometimes they have other things called visitor visas or every country is different. And so you'll need to look into whatever your target country is and see what options they have. And if you don't need a visa, then I recommend checking again and making sure, because, once again, maybe you don't need a visa to enter. But you do need a visa to stay longer than three months. Or maybe you don't need a visa for to stay three months. But you do need to be that if you want to actually work and earn money there, and so you should double check this and make sure that a you don't need the visa where if you do and then be what you can do with that visa if a visa less. You stay there as a tourist for three months, but you're not allowed to work. Then you need to see what your options are, and usually they're ways to go about this. But you kind of do want to make sure that you have everything settled, or at least know what kind of atmosphere there is because, as I mentioned before, countries are getting more knowledgeable about this, about people living abroad because more, more people are doing so and they can be very relaxed or they can be very strict. It really depends. A lot of them were trying to encourage more people to come over a little bit very relaxed. Other people are trying to get more and more strict, so it's good to get an idea of this and see what you should be doing in these situations. 23. 6 Visto 2: So my advice for this is always to check online groups. You can usually find online groups of foreigners or expats. Or what have you living in your target destination? Your target city, your target country. And usually they're very helpful. So usually, if you want to find groups of expats or foreigners living wherever you go, you can usually just type in the name of the place, the country of the city and then expats, foreigners, etcetera, etcetera who live there and something will come up. But sometimes you need to dig around a bit. For example, when I was in Taiwan, it took me a while before I realized before I found this group, this group. Now I lived in Taipei, Taiwan. Kaohsiung is a different city, and this in the south of Taiwan is complete different. But this is a Q and A group for foreigners living in Kaohsiung, and actually, it's I found it to be probably the most useful group for the whole, for the country as a whole. As you can see, they're usually like this. They're usually groups on Facebook. They're not the pages or stuff like that. They're usually set up his groups, and, um, and then you can see they'll have rules here of stuff you can do. You can not doing the group, you know, just to make sure that it's helpful and you'll find stuff like this was the best hidden gem restaurant. Uh, and then does anyone know if it's possible to have a large suitcase shipped home? I'll be back pack in Southeast Asia, the LaBalme looking for quality Tattoo parlor. You find a bit of everything here, and as you can see, 11 more comments like quite a few people tend to comment on This stuff is there explains what I can, turning a bunch of coins in exchange for bills. It's looking for recommendations. Looking for California avocados. You'll find a bit of everything. So if you're looking to go toe so if you're looking to go to Taiwan, let's say or and especially got shown that this will be a great group for you, right? Because you can probably scroll through and finances to all your questions. Or you can ask. And chances are, quite a few people will respond and come up with a reply and just to give another example when I was in Lugano. Now I sort of grew up there, but still, I was curious as to see what all the experts and, uh, here we go English speaking in Lugano, Ticino, Switzerland. I was curious to see what was going on in terms of expats in the international community here. And as you can see once again, this is, they have the rules up here. Facebook leaves for expensive and guest speakers living Lagana Amos to help one another, etcetera, etcetera, and ah, And so you find stuff for sale? Does anyone know where I could buy some led once again? It's just people asking various questions. Um, I meant to be paying V a t on free of delivery charge. And there are a lot of ah different types of questions all over the place and usually with quite a few comments looking for recommendations where I can buy American maple syrup, etcetera, etcetera. So look for groups like this. Wherever you go and chances are you'll find something. Usually they tend to be English speaking. That tends to be the common language. But you can check, for example here. I'm going to do something now. I'm in Ah, Charlotte, let's look for would say, Yanni Charlotte and actually did this before doing this video. So I know there actually is no tired groups in Charlotte, and but I wanted to go through what I would do. You know, if I were looking for a group of Italians here in Charlotte, I would I would search here, and I see that there's nothing really around years. But then I try to find something close by. So I know Atlanta is a city that's close by. So let's look at my time here. There is a group, um, and it's Ah, you can click the joint group. It's a closed group. So I'm not gonna join now because it's, you know, I would be joining under false pretenses of say, we see here six new post today, uh, 270 members. So chances are is very active, and you'll get a good response and chances are any Italians. And this is just for Italians. And in the Atlanta area, chances are few in Charlotte. A lot of it will apply to you as well, so they could get quite nichd. I'm sure there are other groups for Europeans in the general area for people coming internationally, and if you search around, you'll find these groups. I tend to search on Facebook, first of all, but then you can check on meet ups and you can check. You could just try Googling and see what pops up and try to see what happens. But this is usually a go to for me. I go on Facebook and I try to see what expect or foreigner groups there are whatever city I might be moving to. 24. 7 Visto 3: look, usually what happens? In fact, I know quite a few people who do this even when they're married with a family and they work without a visa because they were used to the system. And that's how it works. And no one really bothers them. I tend to avoid this, if at all possible. Just because you never know. And all it takes is some a neighbor who hates you and finds out about your situation and decides to report you to the cops. At that point, the cops have no choice. They have to follow up on something like that. So if you can try to get your visa straight if you don't care, Look, if you if you're single and you're traveling a place and you want to experience it and don't really care if they kick you out of the country. But, I mean, just be aware of what might happen. Andi. Once again, these groups that I mentioned so many times before of expats they can usually help also be very careful about renewables. Now, if you do get a visa, you need to have it renewed on time. You need to pay very close attention to when it expires. This is very different from going on a tourist visa and trying to work a bit under the table, which you might or might not get away with. But renewals are tend to be very strict because usually what they'll say is 90 days or something like that. Don't just tell yourself automatically is three months. Today is the 15th so it'll be on the 15th after three months. No 90 days might mean on the 14th of 13th you don't know and they're very precise about this. In fact, I've It could be such a headache, even if you're one day late. I had ah, one friend of mine exactly. Just did the calculation wrong. And she decided to go to the embassy to have a renewed. And it was already the 90 98 or 91st day. And it was such a headache. She had to leave the country. She couldn't come back for about a month. And it was this all this stuff. And you know, this is bureaucracy, I'm sure, and all that stuff, but still it pays to be very careful about renewals. Seriously, go ahead of time. Go a week or two ahead of time. Even more. You know you don't get no penalty for renewing ahead of time, so pay attention to when it needs to be renewed. Leave yourself plenty of time to renew it. All these things that I've been telling you about visas might seem pretty heavy, and it might seem a lot to take into account or to keep in mind. So seriously. If you're in doubt, check with your embassy now, preferably before you leave. So if you're for example, say you're French and you want to go to Peru, then before leaving check with your Peruvian Embassy or the consulate in whatever city you are in France, go and check with them called check their website first, but called them up. I find it better to talk to someone because you never know how often they update their website. Many times they don't do it very often, and if you can, the best would be to go there. If you can spare an afternoon or something, just go to the embassy. What I've found is, even though they are bureaucracy and government and todos etcetera, usually they're pretty helpful with stuff like this. They know what they're doing. They know what they're saying. And they're quite helpful for someone like you who is trying to, you know, figure out how to get to the country. And if you haven't left for the country than be open about it, say, Hey, look, I'm planning on going there for three months. I'll be working online. Is there a way I could do this now? If they tell, you know there's no way, then you can reevaluate, then check and see if it's worth the risk or not. But chances are they'll tell you Well, yeah, this is the way you have to do what you have to play for this reason where else you can just go and do it Or anyway, just talk to them, give you an idea. And even when you are in the country, if your view left France and you're in Peru and you're wondering about renewal, or about what you can do under the visa stuff like that there to see if you could just go to the consulate or the embassy and talk to them and get an idea, and if you're already in the country So in this scenario, if you're if you are the French person who already went to Peru, then you can usually check with the local French consulate or embassy. Or you can check with the immigration authorities and check with their office. I know a lot of this might sound daunting might sound intimidating, but in my experience, most of these people are very knowledgeable and they're quite open, You know, they're happy to talk to. You might have to wait in line before you get there, But once you do talk to them and tell them your situation, they'll usually be quite helpful. So my recommendation is, if you have any doubts, check with them and these are the official representatives. You know what they tell you will be correct, and so you can rely on it, Uh, for the most part, So if you are in doubt, check with any embassy or consulate just to make sure 25. 8 Saúde e Assistência Médica: So now we're gonna deal with medical issues, health issues, issues along these lines for when you're traveling. Obviously, these will be very different for each person. It depends on your personal situation on your health situation on where you're from, on your target location and various other things. But as a general rule, I would say, first of all, to get all your checkups before leaving. This is your health. Check up, get your teeth clean, get whatever else you need to be done. So everything's squared in a way as much as possible before leaving that way. It's one less thing to worry about when you're there, and this is a pretty big thing. So as long as you have everything in order before you're leaving, then you're better off. The second thing is to get health insurance. You can usually get traveler's health insurance If something along those lines, no matter where you are, check with your local the health insurance company you have right now or else you can check online for other types of travel health insurance, and you can find information pertaining to you once again, depending on your country and your situation. Usually it's not too expensive. The few times I've gotten it isn't really that bad as long as I just get something extra just for travel and it lasts. I mean, it obviously has a finite amount of time during which you can use it. But you can get something like that for now, at least preliminarily, when you're first going to the new country. Also, another thing I recommend is toe. Always bring a first aid kit, and you can include whatever you like in there. I usually includes something like Band AIDS, painkillers. I might have sleeping pills or something to help me sleep or disinfectant and, uh, things along those lines. You want to be ready in case you have cuts, bruises, minor things, things that don't require a doctor or hospital. But at least you can take care of it right away and not have to worry about trying to find these things at the last minute before they become big things. I would also recommend keeping an emergency fund at the beginning. A number you can come up with could be 30% of your budget if you keep this aside in a different funds so you don't touch it, but you keep it is an emergency fund. Once you live in the new place for a while, you get a better idea. You can adjust accordingly, but at least for me, I generally try to keep 30% of my budget aside as an emergency fund, just in case it's needed. Of course, when you arrive in the new place, you should try to inform yourself right away and once again, the best ways to do this. At the beginning, before you know where to go is toe check with local people. So this means check with the local Facebook groups, local meet ups, whoever you might meet and try to get a general idea. By the way, once you do get more comfortable living in the new place, you're going to start finding tremendous advantages. For instance, for me and my wife, whenever we need our annual checkup or things along, those lines will wait until we're in Taiwan to do that because it costs less. The doctors are extremely good, and most of them speak English as well, so you can try to see what your situation is. Maybe you'll find out that dental care is easier in one place. But maybe general health insurance is is easier back home where you came from and so you can kind of coordinates and figure out a way to make it work out. Either way, once again, this will depend on each person on each situation, so see what works best for you. 26. Como Trabalhar Para Uma Empresa No Exterior: now once again for your employees, maybe you plan on working for a company. And so a lot of those things about accepting payment online or stuff like that doesn't really apply to you. But you have to worry about other things, so well, let's go through it. First of all, working four company coming Various things if you figured out a way to work for your company back home and you're going to this new place and the biggest thing to keep in mind at the beginning is the time difference. Very often, people don't keep this in mind. But there will be a time difference so very often what this means and, honestly, what this means for me. Even though I'm in entrepreneurs, my main clients are in Europe, so I do need to keep this in tow and to account. So what I would do is just keep it in mind. This will mean you have to wake up early, but it also means you get to finish work early. Or maybe it means they need to work late. But that also means that you can sleep in late. So figure out what the deal is after a while you get into the routine and you'll figure it out also, especially since your company knows you're abroad as well. But figure out what the routine is and just keep it in mind. What if you're not working for a company back home, but you are planning on working for a new company? So first of all, you can apply for jobs through the usual websites. Monster dot com indeed dot com Go look at whatever country. Whatever city you're looking to move to and find out what job search engines they have, their chances are they'll have something more local, and you definitely want to check that out again. This is a question of updating your resume, putting it up on there and trying to see what you can get. Pretty much every single country has its own personal type of job search website, and so figure out what it is for that country. You can usually just google it and and make sure you upload all your information there as well. By the way, I would also include here any temp job agencies or job agencies that you can find some well known ones or a Deco. There's manpower, and there plenty of others. Very often they specialize in temp work, but uses anyway because even if you get a temp job, first of all, it's better than nothing. And you can use that to make some money while you look for something else or very often. Even though they specialize in temp jobs, they still offer full time jobs. And if you let them know you're looking for something full time, you never know. It doesn't hurt. So look into all of these options as well. Another ways to just search yourself for local opportunity. Search for, say, administrative assistant, plus the city. If you're in administrative system right now and you want to move to London, then look for administrative assistant plus London. Now if the city's usedto expats and should have a system in place for stuff like this and what I mean is someone abroad looking for someone who is from another country looking for a job. I know I grew up in Switzerland, and I know there quite a few expats there who moved there for, Ah, the finance world, right, and they'll go there to work for a bank or something along those lines, but they'll bring along their spouse, and so these spouses will have to look for a job themselves. And so there's this whole network that this whole system in place for the spouses of the expats who come over and we're looking for a job. And so try to tap into this network and see if you can find something, because very often they'll have a whole system in place for finding a job for someone from outside the country. And you never know what opportunities they might have once again find groups on Facebook. Need up dot com, etcetera, etcetera, where you can ask question and ask for leads. And as I mentioned before, these are groups of, ah, local expats, expats who live in whatever your target city is. These expats, they're gonna have the 411 They're gonna have the information on everything you need. Chances are someone already asked this information, and so you can find the answers, if not just asking yourself. They tend to be all the experience I've had for all these online groups. They're extremely helpful. They really want to help other people in their same shoes And so I really found them extremely helpful. Extremely outgoing. Extremely eager. Teoh, help other people out. So if you can find these, these are a gold mine. So, you know, don't be afraid to go on these and say, Hey, I'm plan on moving there and I'm an administrative assistant or my background is in design . Or is it this that and the other? You know, Are there any any options? Anything you think you could look into? This is a link to my resume or something along those lines to my linked in profile. And just so you can see who I am because very often these people will know someone don't know someone personally who was looking for something, and so they can link you directly. And so don't discount this and find out what local group of experts you confined and try to tap into it. Also, find any other groups that can tie you into Ah, whatever city, whatever target city target country you have now, this is your alumni situation. If you went to a college somewhere, you know, whatever cause you you might have gone to chances are they have a network and so you can check into whether or not they have a branch in whatever city you're going to. This is usually easy to find out. By the way, if you can't yourself, you can always email someone. If you go into whatever university website you have, click on alumni. They usually have a contact email. Just email them, say, Hey, I'm planning on going to La Paz, Bolivia. I'm planning on going Teoh Chili or I'm planning on going somewhere. Do we have an expect community there? Do we have an alumni network there? Do you know? Do we have any graduates from our college who live there and see what they say? And they'll probably put you in touch with someone, and then you could take it from there. Another thing is, if you're a member of, say, the Rotary Club or something along those lines that you can see if you have a branch, any club you might be part of that has a branch in other cities or in other countries it's worth looking into, and eso check into that another thing in sports. If you really like to play tennis or curling or skiing or something along those lines truck for sports clubs in the place that you're going to Because, look, this is something where you speak the language and you can say, Hey, I love tennis. I play here and there and I love doing this Any tennis enthusiasts in London and then see work wise. You know, chances are you'll get a bunch of people who are interested in tense. You'll find local groups of local tennis enthusiasts, and you can use this to say, Hey, I'm planning on moving a few months one of the best tennis courts, and use that and then you congratulate. As you start talking to them, ask other information as well. Where is the best places to live and what do you recommend? Etcetera, etcetera. Another thing is hobbies, and this ties into the same way of sports. Hobbies could be like hiking can be whatever you enjoy doing in spare time. Chances are people enjoy doing that, and whatever your target city or target country, it's so look into that as well, unless but not least, is chambers of commerce looking to the Chamber of Commerce of wherever you're going now, this could be very different depending on where you are, but usually most cities will have an international chamber of commerce. So say, if you are American and you're going to Tokyo, there will be an American Chamber of Commerce there, and so that's what you should be looking into. And I mention this because if you're involved in the local chamber of commerce, it will usually just be a city chamber of commerce. But when you're going abroad, you want to look into the international chambers of commerce, and so just keep that in mind. But still, those are usually very helpful, and they'll have a lot of information. By the way, there are a lot of other places you can check on. Usually, an embassy website or consulate website will have information for expats planning to move there. It'll be generic information, but it won't hurt to check. And they might have links to local chambers of commerce and other groups to look into a swell. So feel free to look into that, and then any other group you can think of any other group that you're a part of right now. Chances are, if they don't have a branch abroad, they haven't equivalent abroad, and so look into that as well because I can always help out 27. 1 Seus Primeiros Passos: - So now that you've prepared everything and you've anticipated everything and you've got in your tickets and you book your flight and you've looked into various places that you can live in and you've looked into the transportation situation, what to do, work wise, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. And basically you've been planning your whole life there. And so you're ready to go and you set off. So there are a couple things once you do get there that you should keep in mind and that you should act upon first of all, the most important things. And I've touched on this before, but it bears repeating shelter, transport and access to money. These were the most important things. You need shelter. You need a place to stay. You need to be able to get from a to B at any point in time. So you figure out the transport situation and as I mentioned before, access to money and I mentioned this here again because things might change and or things might be a bit different from what you expected or something might not work well, so just make sure once you get there, you be like, OK, that's double check. I do have the shelter. I do have access to this apartment. Chances are you will figure that out. Transportation? Yes, I do have access to this car. Or I can use this subway or whatever. It might be access to money. Yes, I can get access to money. This works. Okay. Good. So these were the three most important things. The other things. You'll be able to figure them out as you go along. Also, figure out the work situation. If you're working for yourself, you need to make sure that you chances are you need WiFi and a place to sit down. Or maybe you need access to something else. Figure out what it is and go through a test run or something along those lines. But make sure you have a coffee shop nearby that you can work from, or that you can work from home if you have WiFi already available. Or maybe wherever you live has a business center. And so you can work from there or this coworking space or someone else's office or whatever . Combination. Anyway, make sure that there's a place that you can work from, because presumably you want to start working pretty soon, and so you want to make sure that works out. So whatever the work situation might be for you just ah, a soon as you get to your target city to your target destination, just make sure that it does work out that the WiFi does work. You know that you do have a place to sit down or that you do have been office to work out of etcetera. And also definitely you need to improvise, adapt, overcome. When you get to someplace something's gonna be different, they're gonna be things that you did not anticipate that you did not hear about. And it could be anything again. It could be something mundane, like groceries, and that you don't know how it works out or how to get phones or something along those lines. For example, you might go to Italy, and you might want to get a coffee and get to the counter, order your coffee, and then realize that you can't order coffee at the counter and they'll say, Oh, no, you can't order here. Maybe already waited in line of it and you said, 01 espresso, please. Irwin espresso or whatever and they'll say, Oh, no, you can order here. You have tow order over at the cashier, and usually that's what happens. You go to the cashier and you pay their tell him what you want to pay their and then you come with me to the bar with your receipt and, uh and then they prepare for you. I say, usually it's various locations, but you'll definitely find this in many places, including last time I was in my pain set in the main airport in Milan. They do that and you know, many coffee shops around. So just realize things are gonna be different, and you're going to do stuff like waiting in line to order coffee and then not be able to. And but as long as you know ahead of time that things are gonna happen, you're gonna look odd or weird, or you're gonna look like a fool or gonna feel like a fool. But you're gonna learn from it. And trust me any time you look like a fool, you learn from it very quickly. And so, you know, don't let it get you down. Don't worry about it and realize that you're gonna have to improvise sometimes, and you're gonna have to adapt. So and by the way, this can happen both ways. Many times you'll be pleasantly surprised. For example, if you're in Seoul Station and you're flying with one of the Korean Airlines, you can check in your luggage at Seoul Station, which means you can check in, get your boarding pass, give your luggage there of the soul train station. This is the main train station, and so and so and then. Not only that, but you can go through immigration right there. They put a stamp on your ticket and they tell you, OK, now you can go through the diplomats line and you don't have to go through wait in line through the normal X ray machine in the normal, you know, line to have your passport checked. But you could brush there with all the diplomats. And then from there you just take the express train straight to the airport, and this is a very pleasant surprise, and you so you can have surprises either way. So just realized that things will work differently. You know certain places when you want to ask for the check, you have to call the waiter over. This is usually in the West, But usually when you go to the East and Asia, most places least that I've been to. Whenever you want to pay, you just go over to the cashier and you pay on your way out again. Every place has their own ways of doing things, and you're gonna figure it out quickly enough. And usually it becomes second nature after a few days. But things will be a bit different. So don't always expect things to be like back home. Or ask yourself, Well, why can't they do things like back home but embrace it and realize things will be different ? You're going to get things wrong every now and then. And yes, sometimes things won't make much sense. You know, for example, having to wait in two different lines to order coffee at a bar. It might seem odd to you, and look, that's one of the first things that you can start talking about with other experts or other people you meet. And you could start saying, Well, why the hell would they do that? And yeah, you know some people, some people will say well, it helps from the flow of traffic. And so there's not too much, not too many people ordering coffee at the same time or whatever. On the other. People say, Yeah, I think it's ridiculous to either way just realize whatever happens, even if you get it wrong. Even if you look like a fool would feel like a fool, it will give you a good story. So my best advice, there would be just a grin and bear it and move on. 28. 2 Dicas Aulas: So as a tip here, I would say one of the main things I like to do when I moved to a new places to sign up for language classes. Chances are, if you're in a new country, they speak a different language. So sign up for language classes. Even if you speak the language relatively well, sign up anyway. Their various reasons for this the main will. The main reason, obviously, is to learn the new language. I found most places I go to. People tend to be very patient. If you speak the local language, it's almost like a form of flattery. They feel flattered that you're trying to learn their language trying to communicate in their language. And I've had it happen various times to me. I remember trying to order food and it took forever. I was no. In fact, I was just order coffee and I was just and I was It was taking me forever to try to order, and I was doing it in Chinese, by the way, and my Chinese was abysmal and it took me forever. And finally, when I was done, ordered my coffee, the cashier tell me, told me in English and grade English, said, Wow, you're Chinese is really good and, you know, part of me felt like you could have switched to English right away, but he was really patient with me and trying. Teoh, just let me practice my Chinese and and I find that as long as you try speaking in the language, people do tend to be very patient with you. In most places you go to not all the time, but usually and so it's Ah, it is good and right. Taking language classes is great because it helps you meet other people who are your saint shoes and so you can help each other out. Chances are other people learn the language or other people who are foreigners like you and who have moved there recently and are trying to figure out life there. Justus you are. And so it's a great place to meet other people who in your same shoes and you guys can help each other out. They'll know about resource Is that maybe you did it, and so it works out well. By the way, if you move to a place where you already speak the language, then Actually, you're in a much better situation. In that case, I would suggest you joined other classes. If you speak the language, you can take classes in anything else. Find night classes, find local universities or whatever might be that offer classes. You can take whatever your hobby might be your favorite sport to your favorite subject. If something along those lines and there you'll find other people who are local, by the way, because presumably if it's a class taught in the local language, they'll be. There's more translator local, and, ah, and so then you'll get access to a lot more information. Plus, you get to talk to other people in a setting that you enjoy prison. One believes the class about something you're interested in so it will be very relaxing will be about something that you're interested in. So I I usually recommend, and what I always try to do is I try to find classes that I could take locally. Another thing to keep in mind is Ah, meetups meetups. You could go to meet up dot com. You can go to inter nations dot org's These air just two of the main websites where you can find other people usually from out of town or not. But either way you can find other people that you could talk to. You can just network. Usually they have meet ups where you can just network and hang out and talk to them in a relaxed manner, you know, over drinks or over dinner or something. One of those lines, they'll have mawr seemed events as well, and so definitely check them out. If, by the way you don't find any meet ups or inter nations or anything along those lines where you are, then feel free to set up your own. This happened to me when I first moved to Taipei. I was looking for meat up that that was for entrepreneurs, entrepreneurs living in Taipei, and at the time there weren't any. Now there plenty, But at that time this is 2012. There weren't any, and so what happened was a buddy of mine and I set up our own and we set up a meet up for entrepreneurs in Taipei and which, by the way, is still going on. Now that I've left Taipei and then he is no longer involved as Well, we've handed it over to someone else, has over 1000 members. But, you know, we figured when we set it up, look who s case scenario. We're just gonna have beer. So set up your own meet up. Worse case scenario, you'll go out and have a beer and see if anyone else shows up. And in fact, the first couple of meet ups only a few people will show up. But then, from there on, you'll, you know, make some contacts and chances are if it's something you're interested in, if it's a meet up and you're interested in that meet up, then chances are someone else's as well. And so it's always useful to look for it something going on in terms of meet ups or in terms of classes as well, etcetera, etcetera. 29. 1 DR: So this is a tip. I'm not sure if it is really a tip, but it's something that I do and that I found quite useful and whatever. I make reservations in hotels but also planes or car rentals, etcetera. There's an option to put Mr Mrs Miss etcetera, etcetera. I always put Dr I'm not a doctor. I don't have a PhD. I'm not a clinical physician or anything along. I've absolutely no, I'm not a doctor at all, but what I have found when I do this again, it just might be my impression. But I found that usually, like on a hotel, they'll put me on a higher floor. Or, let's say, Ah, more quiet, floored. They're gonna assume that I'm not rowdy, that I'm not there to party and and make a ruckus and all that, and so they'll sort of treat me accordingly. So again, I'm not sure. Maybe this is all just in my head on. Do you don't want to do that or you think it's unethical or something along those lines and fine, but I found, at least maybe it's my impression, maybe some placebo effect, but I still do it that whenever gives me the option, I just put in doctor, because why not 30. 2 Dicas Para Aluguel De Carros: so here I wanted to show you quickly. The first place I go to rent a car is always kayak dot com, and I recommend using one of these websites that aggregate PSA Bunch of different choices, like kayak dot com, just because you tend to get the best deals. And I recently was using it for Milan. And so I want to show you an example of of what will happen. So if you go to kayak dot com, you can click on hotels, flights, etcetera, etcetera. So you click on cars and, ah, and then you enter where you're going. So I put Milan Maupin. So that's the airport. And, ah, let's just put some dates. Ah, you know, I don't know. Let's put something random for a whole week. Yeah, January 10th to 17th and then let's click here and then see what pops up and right away you'll see that it gets different companies and this is Cicely by car, Cicely by car or a lot of these air Cicely by car. But ah, and here via something and all that on the Avis and whatnot anyway. And you get to see what what they have And as you can see here, they have some very good deals now, I reserved it for a week, and here it says $47 total, right. And in fact, they have quite a few. And this is $51 total. And Ah, and when you look at the deal, you can see what comes up. And so you can see here rental with exclusive inclusive rate 46. So six, you can see here. Now, obviously, this is not including anything else. And, ah, you know, not including any protection or anything like that. But here you can see a total price of 46 year. Even if you get the protection and other stuff, then it's probably worth it. But as you can see, they have the annoying pop ups, unfortunately, but yeah, they have quite a few. This is 51 51 51 all of these are very cheap for a week long rental. If you've ever rented a car, you know this is very cheap, and kayak tends to do that. It has a lot of the low cost, like Cicely by car is obviously a low cost company and it aggravates them as well. And see, You see, you can see the total rentals 46. So six, there are a couple things that I usually try to keep track of. When I first went the car before I set foot in it or anything, videotape with my phone, you know, just everything. Just make sure I have every scratch and no can cranny, like showing their if there are scratches and marks them down in little shed, they give me and I make sure they know that I know. Then when I drop it off, I also take another video because if you do it with your phone right away, the video is time stamped and everything, and I show everything you know is in proper order, as it should be. So anyway, and again and again that this won't happen everywhere you go. But I found just cause I rented recent from our pain son and realize they have these really good deals with companies like Sicily by car. What? Not that, um, it's just best to use one of these aggregate websites and at least from a starting point, another thing to look out for by the ways and this happened to me once I've used to sleep by car, assisted by car is fine. I have no problem with them. But one of the other websites I used, I think was car Delmar, that they're terrible because they didn't tell you. You have to go deep, deep into all the details. That's you can't drive internationally. And if you're in Europe than you do want to drive internationally, pretty sure that you're gonna be crossing some borders there. So you want to make sure about it. Frankly, at these prices, you know, it's worth reading through those couple things that make making sure they're okay and ah, and then click on them now. Obviously, there are other options. If you're going to some place to rent a car, they might have some local company that's really, really local and isn't even feature on kayak dot com These I mean, you never know with these. If you have a friend who lives locally and they recommend or they say it's fine to use that company, then find use them. You know some local mom and pop shop that rents out cars and find. But if you're just doing yourself when you happen to stumble across it, you really never know. And so you might not want to risk it. And that's why I prefer using these aggregate because these are small companies. But if they're featured on here, chances are there at least pretty legit. 31. 3 Airbnb Dicas: Airbnb is a pretty big topic into itself and so that it should be given its own course. And in fact, it it is given it some. Of course, you can find many courses on how to manage your Airbnb property and how to ah, deal with, you know, evaluating if you want to put your place up on Airbnb and if it's worth it, etcetera, etcetera. So I'll I'm just gonna touch briefly on a couple things just that I have seen from my experience. But if you are serious about putting your place up on Airbnb, then I suggest that you do your own research and maybe talk to some people who have done it before themselves, but just briefly, just so you can get an idea. First of all, you do need a manager, especially if you're not gonna be there. You need someone on the ground there where your property is to manage your Airbnb your place. This could be a manager, so a riel managing company. And in fact, I was surprised just in the town where I live in Lugano that they actually have a management company for Airbnb properties. So do a search and you might be surprised that some local, either real estate company or someone else has taken it upon themselves to manage local Airbnb properties anyway. Or at worst, case scenario. You'll find a friend and then come up with a price I would suggest, if you're not sure, come up with a preliminary price and say, Look at the beginning. I'll pay you either a set feet per week or per guest or per number of days a guest stays or percentage of what I earn or whatever might be Come up with something in the beginning that works for both of you and saying, Okay, we'll reevaluate after a month or two and see if it still works out for both of us or not, and then try to take it from there. Now keep in mind a couple things. Ah, when this friend or this company, or whoever is helping you with your Airbnb is gonna have to handle quite a few things. First of all, you're gonna need cleaning in between each guest, so after each guest leaves, you're gonna have to clean up after the guest, and then you're gonna have to change the sheets they're gonna have to change the towels, the pillowcases, etcetera, etcetera. And then before the new guest comes, you're gonna have to make sure all the clean stuff is put back in. And, ah, and that is clean once again for the new guests and everything is properly done. So this will involve doing laundry. It will involve having a maid or someone come over or just your friend themselves. But either way, it needs to be done in between each guest. You also need someone available for issues. And no matter who you are, you know, at some point someone's going to come up with an issue and, you know, it might be there. The problem with the water, the hot water or the electricity, or this or that, Or they could just be, you know, invented issues or things. Maybe they can't find the keys or they can't find this or that. You need someone on the ground to help out with little things. They need to be available in the same time zone, have a local phone number and be available to come in person, just in case there's something wrong and something needs to be done as a general recommendation. I would say, if you're not sure what to charge on your Airbnb to start off with a smaller amount, and obviously it depends what kind of a place you have and fits the studio. If it's a one bedroom to bedroom, three bedroom etcetera. But what you can often do is charge a smaller base amount, but then you can have surcharges their extra charges for everything extra. So if they have extra people coming, say OK, it's plus X amount for each person who comes. If they want access to a garage. Okay, then it's a bit extra for access to the garage. If they want. I don't know, you know, access to the the extra guest bedroom. Okay, then it's an extra amount for that. Just stuff, obviously. Don't be too nitpicky tryto maybe look around and see what other places other properties they're doing. But in general, that way you convey a bit more flexible if someone's just coming by themselves, and all they need is a room that they get charged a smaller amount. But if four people are coming and they need access to the garage, etcetera, it doesn't make sense to be charging these two groups that same amount. And so that way you can be a bit more flexible in that sense. And, you know, you can make sure you're charging the right amount for the right type of clientele. Another thing is, in terms of, if you're worried about sharing the account, Airbnb does give you options. So in this sense, if it's your property, but you have a friend or another management company managing the property, you can both get access to it. And it's very interesting. So I, for example, the property that we're renting out. It's my Airbnb account, but the other management company has access to it. This means that when people pay the account, I receive the money. I receive all that money, and I get to see what else is going on. But the management company, they they also get to see the account, but they don't get the money. I pay the management company. They get to keep track of how much money I make. So it's not like I can cheat them or anything. And but then they get to deal with. You know, if if people have enquiries there if they're sending messages, if they're asking questions, they get to deal with all that. So I don't have to deal with any of that. Airbnb does this because they realize that a lot of people are doing this and this is a necessity. So don't worry about sharing the account and stuff like that because Airbnb has some very good options for that. You know, they realize that that's how it works. Another thing is to be careful what you leave. All the properties have been, too. Obviously they have place. They have knives. I have stuff like that. But there are a couple things that you need to be careful. First of all, look, if someone's dishonest and they ruin something, that that's why they pay the deposit and Airbnb holds a deposit. And on top of that, Airbnb also has its own insurance. So, yeah, if they completely destroy the place, you don't have to worry too much, and you'll get covered. But the main issue is actually just normal wear and tear, in fact, So we have a clip machine and I wanted to leave the work light machine in our property because I thought Why not give him the access to make the wrong work? Let their collective Zaveri well known Swiss dish with cheese and it uses the machines will be nice to have it. And But the issue is, and this is what the management company told me and they're right is that look, you know you're gonna have people using it, but at a certain point, someone is going to be using it, and they're going to be using a knife and do a little scratch on it, a little Nick on it, and it's not enough to ask them to pay for it outright or anything like that, so no one pays attention. But then the next person will do another little thing because they'll notice there's already a little scratch and so another little scratch doesn't matter. The next person does too little scratches anyway. Before you know it, it's kind of ruined just because of wear and tear. And it would be too bad with Rick let Machine because the work let machine is actually worth quite a bit. And so in the end we decided not to feature the crop machine anyway, things to keep in mind Most people are nice. If they're not nice, you can get a refund because of the insurance because of the deposit. But it's a normal wear and tear that you kind of have to worry about. And so just keep that in mind with, with all the stuff that you have available. Also, obviously, be conscious of neighbors most. Most of the time you know this, but obviously you have neighbors. Chances are they know you and, uh, and chances are they're not going to be extra thrilled about having a constant array of new people coming all the time and staying at your place. So you kind of want to be conscious about that, have that in the rules. You know, just say to be conscious of neighbors. No noise after 10 stuff like that. Also, if there's a laundry room or any common areas again, these should be in the rules that people pay attention. So we have a laundry room. But actually, what I did with the management company is that the management company itself will will make use of the laundry room. So if any guests needs to do laundry and needs to have anything washed the management company themselves will send someone to do the washing themselves and then deliver it back . And that way we don't have all these strange people coming into the laundry room all the time and running into the neighbors and whatnot. But it's only always the same person. Obviously, we pay the management company of a little bit extra for this, but I prefer to have it that way. Just so all my neighbors and everyone is happier. 32. 4 Dicas Pra Bagagem: So here's some tips dealing with luggage. At least these are some personal tips and recommendations that I give when dealing with luggage and traveling internationally. First of all, as I've mentioned before, I think if you're doing a move abroad for 36 months, a year, whatever it might be, I think you should use this as an opportunity to get rid of everything. You know that ever everything you can write and ah so I'm talking to your big screen TV and stuff like this. Quite frankly, you don't want to take in your luggage. And I already mentioned before a kind of don't recommend just shipping a whole bunch of stuff. So if you can sell it for a certain price, sell it. If you want, you can put in storage, but I think you should just find a way to get rid of it. Maybe sell it, make some extra bucks, and then when you get to your new country, can evaluate if you want to buy a TV or what you want to do and how you want to do with it anyway, at the end of the day, you get rid of what you can. You're obviously you're still gonna have luggage. In fact, you're gonna have quite a bit of it. And by the way, if you are more interested in ah de cluttering and getting rid of things, I highly recommend you look up a book by Maria Condo. And the book is called The Life Changing Magic of tidying Things up. It's a bit odd in some places, but it is very interesting if you're interested in de cluttering in terms of the philosophy , in terms of the methods and manners, of being able to get rid of things that are just cluttering up in taking up space, a different type of way of looking at things and a different type of mentality in terms, off ownership and possessions. Anyway, I obviously have no affiliation with this book myself. I just found it an interesting read. Anyway, getting back to luggage, Of course. No matter what you do, you're going to end up having luggage. In fact, you're gonna end up having quite a bit of it, So there are a couple of things to keep in mind. First of all, on international flights, you will have a maximum baggage allowance and this is for your checked in luggage is one or two bags. This will depend on the airline usually and on the destination. And most of the time, the bags will have a maximum weight of 23 kilos or £50 each. And once again it will be one or two bags. So check what airline you plan on using. Are you thinking of using? Just keep this in mind when you are booking your airline. Ideally, you can fit all of your belongings into one suitcase or for the two of you than you know into two suitcases. But if they do, allow two bags each than you could bring more. In case you haven't heard this before, you probably have when you check in your luggage. Don't put any electron ICS inside. Just don't. The only two times that I've had issues with luggage have been when I had electron ICS one time, I had ah had a digital camera. This was a long time ago and I didn't know any better. Another time I had a a cell phone. It was an old cellphone, but I had it in and my look, the whole luggage just got lost, and I'm pretty sure it's because they saw the cell phone, by the way, both times What's flying through France? I don't know if that says anything or not. But anyway, it was flying from Charles DeGaulle Airport. Regardless, don't put any electron ICS. And the reason for electron ICS is that it really shows up right away when they go through the X ray machines and people are going to see them right away. So don't put any electron ICS you have you should carry in. Your carry on for me usually ends up being my laptop and my external hard drive. But iPad laptop, obviously, cellphone stuff like that just having in your carry on do not check it in. Having said that, I do think you should try to check in as much as possible. I know a lot of people don't like check in luggage, and in fact, I remember I was coming back from Japan with a friend of mine old classmate of mine, and he had this huge duffel bag that for some reason he was able to squeeze into the carry on allowance thing, and he preferred to carry that this huge duffel bag that weighed so much rather than checking it in because he prefers to have his luggage with him. And to me, that seems crazy still. Now, whenever I check in my luggage, I first of all, take pictures of my luggage, you know, open. And then once I close my suitcase, I take pictures of my suitcase because if you do lose your luggage for doesn't show up, you always have to describe the suitcase and they have to enter all this information. If you have a picture, then they have all the information right away. You don't need to worry, so I always take pictures. What has happened a couple times is my luggage isn't there, and I just find out that my luggage didn't make the flight. So I will give in my information. And then the next day my luggage gets delivered to my doorstep. You can also use a luggage trucker Now. I had this and I used it a couple times, and lately I haven't been using it. But you can find quite a few types of luggage trackers, and these are things that you put in your luggage and then later through your phone through an app on your phone, you can just keep track of where they are. And so if they put your luggage in the wrong place and it ends up going to the wrong airport, then the GPS on the APP will track it, and, ah, and then right away with your phone, you'll you'll know where it is as a bonus, and this really will not pertain to anyone unless they're flying out of Seoul. And even then, I think you have to be fine with with a Korean Airlines. So a Jeon Airlines Air Korean air or one of those change aware some like that. Anyway, if you're flying out of Seoul, you can actually check in at the train station and check in means you can get your boarding pass. You can check your luggage in so you don't have to deal with it any more, and you can go through immigration from the train station to take the high speed train right to the airport. And then they send you straight through the quick the diplomat line so you don't have to, uh, go again through the long line for the X Ray and for immigration and what not? But you get to go straight through the quick line, and then they see that you already got checked by immigration before. And so they kind of just waved me through. Once again, it's very specific flying out of Seoul. But you might also want to check other airports because, for all I know, other airports have a same or the similar deal. So, you know, look into it because it really makes your life a lot more comfortable if you can take advantage of, ah, something like that. 33. 5 Dicas Sobre Dinheiro: So here. Just a couple of quick tips about the money situation when you arrive in a new place, I should say right away that these can be very different depending on the currency that you're starting off with in your home country and the current senior target country. Whether the currency is stronger, where this weaker how the variation is a fluctuation in the option of seven center anyway. But just really broadly generalizing. Let me just give a couple quick tips that can hopefully help you out. First of all, I usually recommend exchanging money as soon as you arrive. If you have dollars and you're going to whatever country might be, then ah, you know, say you're going to Japan. Then as soon as you arrived, just exchange some dollars, you know, a couple 100 or whatever might be into Japanese yen That way you have it right off the bat . As soon as you step off the airport, you have some cash just in case. However, usually when you exchange cash, you know you get a certain rate and they have the rates displayed and all that. However, if you can use an a t. M you usually get a better rate and you get a marginally better rate. And depending on how much you change, then it can be better. However, remember that you might get charged a fee for using an international account in your bank account back home will probably charge a fee as well, and so it really depends on how much you take out and what the fees are and how they work. But the raid itself that you get will usually be marginally better. However, using a credit card usually gives you an even better rate. And again, this could be situations where you're just paying for something. And so you want to use a credit card just to pay for it at the store, or else when you eat with some friends, then maybe you can offer to pay for everything and everyone pays you their portion in cash . So if the whole thing ends up costing, say, 100 bucks in there, four of you, you'll say, I'll pay all of this with my card and you guys each pay me 25 bucks in cash. And that way you don't have to worry about exchange rate fees or something like that. But regardless, the credit card rate is usually a better rates than what you get at the. However, getting your own bank account locally is obviously the best. And this is because the rate that you get with a bank to bank transfer is usually better. Now. There are a lot of different rates and, you know, with cash usually being the worst and the interbank rate usually being the best you know between different banks. This is why if you can find a way to open the local bank accounts and then just transfer all the money you'll need during your stay, then even taking into account the fees, it will usually be a better rate. Of course, open your own bank accounts very often isn't as easy as that sounds. And so you kind of need to look into that and evaluate what your options are on what's best . But as I mentioned before, and probably have your tired of hearing me saying, this really does depend on situations, so check into what your local situation is. Check with your local Facebook groups or with other people in the area and try to get a feel for this. Another thing to keep in mind is, Do not try to play the exchange rate game. A lot of people I've seen will say, Oh, I want to exchange money but I really feel like the dollar is going to go up next month or whatever local currency is gonna go down. Try to ah, be smarter than the market. Don't do that. It's never been worth it from everything I've seen, and usually what I've found works best is just to assume that you're going to lose out. Assume that something's gonna happen in the exchange rate will not be in your favor. So usually what that ends up doing is that you just don't take the exchange rate into account, but you take the fees into account. Now, if you assume you're going to lose out with the exchange rate, that usually means that 50% of the time you'll be pleasantly surprised because 50% of the time you'll probably win out because its exchange rate. But you're not gonna outsmart the market if that's not your industry. And ah just adds a different layer of complication onto what you're already doing, which is starting a new life in a new place, and that's complicated enough 34. 6 Dicas De Moradia: So these are some hotel and housing tips for when you first arrive. When your first arriving your targets. Set your target country your target destination. There are a couple things you should keep in mind. First of all is the time frame, I usually say to assume two weeks to one month. Obviously, this depends on many different things. If you have housing already waiting or if you already have had some housing toe, look at when you arrive and how you feel about it. Or maybe if you're arriving there blind, you have no idea. Anyway, assume two weeks to one month. And so get some temporary housing. A place to stay in the meantime for those two weeks to one month, and they're a couple option for this. First of all, check into Airbnb rates. Chances are wherever you're going does have Airbnb, and so if you want to stay there for a few weeks, then get Airbnb. See if there's some options for maybe getting it for two weeks and see if you can extend that later on or something along those lines. But either way, look into it. Another option to look into his extended stay. Hotels remember you have normal hotels also have extended stay hotels. These are nice because they have kitchens. They have maybe a living room or slightly more amenities for people who will stay longer term. And remember, many times they were part of the big chains, which means they have loyalty points. So if you are saying in a place for two weeks or one months, this is a good chance to join some of these. You know, if you can join the Hilton Marriott Intercontinental one of these, if you're saying there for whole month, chances are you'll get quite a few points and so look into it. Another thing is other house sharing websites. These will be similar to Airbnb, but many times will have something locally you can usually google and find out if your target country or target city has something. Couchsurfing dot org's might be an option, depending on who you are and what your tastes are, but look into this as well. You also want to check into other bed and breakfasts, and this is just a person example that I know it's in Taiwan, and a lot of places our bed and breakfast. They call themselves bed and breakfast because it's easier than being a hotel. But many of them are basically hotels. They might be run by just a family or something along those lines. But it will be a big building with different separate rooms. And, you know, just just to say that bed and breakfast doesn't necessarily mean that it's someone's house and you just have a spare room. These can change, and they can vary a lot locally. So do your research and if you're not sure about it, that it might be best to go with another option. But it's just something to keep in mind. 35. 7 Dicas Pra Quando Chegar: So here's some tips for when you first arrive at your location. Now you've prepared everything, and obviously all your paperwork is in order. And we've already discussed how you should be looking for a way, say, to earn money. You have housing, transportation and everything imported. However, when you first arrived, you might feel a bit out of place. And so these air some activities that I usually perform that I usually do when I first arrived in a new place. First of all, if you like jogging, try to find the nearest body of water. This could be either a lake. It could be a river. It could be the ocean. Something along those lines. Chances are you're not too far from some body of water. Most cities have a body of water close by. So what I like to do, and I do this when travelling as well, not just moving to a new place. I like to jog until that body of water and then jog along it for a bit, depending on how long I wanted to hug total on dial, just jog back. So if this is something that you enjoy, if you enjoy jogging, then absolutely do this. Obviously, if you prefer walking or cycling or any whatever activity might be, then try doing that until the nearest body of water. It gives you a good excuse to get out there and to just explore the city and explore part of the city that maybe you wouldn't have any other reason to explore and to get a bit more acclimated with this new area that you're gonna be calling home for a while. Another thing I like to do is to explore coffee shops. Coffee shops, I find, can be extremely entertaining, an extremely eye opening, because coffee shops indicator two different types of people you're gonna have your hipster coffee shops, your student coffee shops, your businessman coffee shops on DSO. If you explore these different types of coffee shops, you get it. Feel for what type of city you're in and what type of people hang around. So feel free to go to different coffee shops for your first couple days, first couple weeks and try Teoh. See what the general scene is with the ambience is obviously, if you just stick to Starbucks or something like that, you're going to get more or less the same type of people, so trying to hit some local coffee shops and get some local flavor once again. And I've mentioned this before, but one of the first things that I do when I arrive in a new place is I try to find Meetups . I try to find, you know, inter nations dot org's meetups dot com something like that where I can meet local people or else even just meet expats and foreigners that are living in this location just to give me a better idea of the feel. And so this is one of the first things I do when I arrive at a new place, and another point and again, I've touched on this before, but it bears. Repeating is to find local activities or fine classes or things along those lines. Now I've mentioned classes mawr along the sense of fine language classes. If you're in a new place and you want to study the local language, then you confined language classes, which will help you meet people and will help you obviously learn the local language, but you don't have to limit it just to this. You can also just find local activities. For example, my wife is into yoga, and every single city we go to, she ends up attending the local yoga class. This is from Shanghai to Lucca in Tuscany to Lugano in Switzerland to the States. Obviously, all these yoga classes are taught in different languages. My wife doesn't speak all of these languages, but she's still able to go and threw them. She was able to meet locals and, in fact, often get more fuel for the local life than I did just because of the people. She met it during these activities. So whatever activity you enjoy, whether it be yoga, where there be photography, where there'd be some sports, whether it be painting or whatever might be, try to see if they have activities where you are. Even if you don't speak the language, you can check them out, see if they're worth joining and see if there's something that you'd like to pursue 36. 8 Dicas De Estrada: So here's some tips dealing with road trips. Chances are wherever you go will become your new home base, and whatever city you're in right now will be wonderful to explore and to get to know better. But they're also gonna be a lot of other cities and towns and areas and regions and things to visit that are not exactly where you live but are just a car right away. So you might if you are like me, you'll end up taking quite a few road trips. That's usually what I did. My new location was my home base, and I would take road trips all around the different areas. And so I ended up having quite a bit of experience. And actually, I look forward to road trips. I really do like them both. My wife and I enjoy taking them, and I know a lot of people absolutely do not like take them. So I thought I'd just share some of the tips and tricks that I've come up with over the years. First of all, don't just go from a to B. If you are living in a certain city, let's say you're in Paris and you want to visit some other city and some other region You want to go to D John? You want to go to the on you want to go somewhere else? Don't just go from a to B, realize that they're quite a few places along the way that might be worth visiting and might be worth a stop. The fact is, you're gonna have to stop anyway. You're gonna have to stop for gas. You're gonna have to stop to eat something to grab a coffee, to go to the restroom, anything along those lines. So why not make it count? I learned this pretty early on when I was young. We used to live in Lugano, which is Southern Switzerland. But a lot of my family was in Tuscany, so we often used to drive down there. And I remember as a kid we used to go with my father and we used to go straight from where we lived down there, which was about 3.5 hour drive something along those lines. We never look forward to it because it was a very long drive, and we tried to get it over as quickly as possible. We leave early early in the morning so we could be there at a decent time, and it was always a hassle to do this. But later on, after a number of years, basically, when I started driving, I realized that it didn't have to be the case. And so when I would end up driving, saying my mother down to Tuscany, I would tell her I was like, Look, we're not gonna go straight. We're going to stop somewhere for lunch, you can pick a place ahead of time. Otherwise, we're stopping somewhere. And thanks to this, I found many places that many restaurants that I still like now and that I highly recommend that are along the way down there in places like chainsaw dreamily desert towns that are basically on the way down to Ah, Tuscany. And so I say all this just to say that no matter where you're going, chances are somewhere along the line there's a nice coffee shop. There's a lease, a nice restaurant or maybe just somewhere to stop and take a few pictures that can break up the trip and make it worth it, and in essence, make you get more out of a trip. It makes you have to destinations rather than just one. Another. Thing that my wife and I have come to really appreciate recently have been podcasts. We've discovered many new podcasts that we like listening to together in the car, and I find when I drive by myself, I also like listen to podcasts. The same can go with audio books or anything along those lines. I think they're great way to pass the time. And if there one of these type podcasts, like cereal or one of those that you really get into, then you know they they are a great way to pass the time. And if you're driving with other people, then you guys can discuss it later. And so anyway, we enjoy it a lot, So I thought I would share that in case it's something that might interest you as well. 37.
