The Expat Files Show # 689 – September 3, 2017

 

 

#1- Ten things you must know when taking on a Latino business partner: the do’s, dont’s, realities the pitfalls.

#2- The scoop on gringo and expat legal name changes in Latin America: the why’s, where’s and the in’s and outs.   

#3- When gringos rip off gringos: Latin America is fertile ground for gringo con men and scammers. Surprisingly enough, gringos and expats are often sucked in and scammed by other likable smooth-talking gringos- not so much by Latinos (as you might have assumed). Though it does make sense- what with so many gullible ever-trusting gringos and expats looking to get in on the next big land, business or real estate opportunity.

#4- Friends and family will eventually come to visit – and certainly crash at your Latin paradise (pad). You can count on it. But normally they’ll only fly down after much time has passed and they come to realize you are really happy, living the good life and  haven’t been kidnapped or eaten by cannibals. Some of those visitors will arrive, like it way too much and stay way too long. Yes, and they’ll be back. That can be a problem.

#5- Sign up for Johnny Mueller’s Latin American “Expat Insider” Seminar. The next one will take place on Sat, January 6th  through Thurs, January 11th  2018. Get on the earlybird list and get the info signup details by emailing Johnny at: theexpatfiles@gmail.com
