“President” Trump today pulled the US out of the Paris climate accord.
It’s astonishing, even for Trump. Essentially every citizen, business and leader in the world (yes, including the USA) believes saving the planet is a good idea. Not Trump.
Sadly, Trump, the orange man-baby that he is, continues to appeal to his redneck base. The sad little man has become even more isolated, more unstable and more orange since leaving the G-7 summit last week. While in Europe, the real leaders pressed Trump hard for an answer about the US’s commitment to reversing climate change. Unsurprisingly, Trump didn’t have the courage to give his answer then. He waited until back home. His answer: to join Syria, as the only country who doesn’t believe in the climate accord. There are 195 countries who are committed, with or without the US.
Trump Gives Another Reason to Leave, and Live Anywhere Else
Just about anywhere else you want to go, people shake their heads at Trump. He’s insanely naive, uneducated, allegedly unable to read, cowardly, and deeply dependent on praise. Yet, he continues to embarrass his fellow citizens, while the world continues to laugh at him. And while you continue to live there, people are essentially laughing at you. It’s time to make up your mind to act. Either stand up against him, or find a country that fits you and your family.
Thanks to Super Tuesday results, it’s pretty certain Trump will be the candidate.
And possibly the next President of the United States.
Do you really want to be there when this happens? …I didn’t think so.
As of today, I’m tailoring my current Gone in One Year program. I’m building for one person: for the American who want to get out of the US, and move to Canada.
What’s the Gone in One Year program? It’s a 12-month (obviously) long set of e-mails, homework, videos and tailored help to get someone living abroad. I’ve lived abroad several times; now I teach others. It’s great.
Faster, Shorter, Uncut
Because moving to Canada for Americans is easier than say, moving to Costa Rica or Czech Republic, this program is faster. It’s 10-months, not 1 year.
It’s also “uncut” and less generalized. When I know you come from X country and want Y country, I can give clear-cut, direct help. In this case, it’s US —> Canada.

There is no “typical” expat. But I can share who is the typical Expat Yourself client.
Since I created “Gone in One Year” program, I fell in love with building info graphics. Info graphics are those colourful pages of icons and one-liners that speak volumes. Well, here’s a quickie that illustrates my typical consulting client.
Every so often I write a very simple post. Like this one today.
It’s time for you to sail away from the safe harbour. As Mark Twain is often cited, with his full quote overlaid a pretty picture here:
Interaction is Key
I’ve been promising to write a “how-to” guide for you for ages. The trouble is, an “info-book” is not really helpful, not like real interaction. (In fact, I know someone selling such a book – but it turns out to be just a “how to make money online” guide, in a “travel anywhere” wrapper. Little smarmy in my opinion, but that’s his gig.)
Info-books do not help, as real interaction does.
That’s why consulting works well. However, consulting is pricey ($150/hour) for some folks. Finally, I fixed the price problem!
The solution: general consulting, in e-mails. New material sent every few days. Packaged in a full 1-year program: Step-by-Step Expat Consulting. Very cheap monthly fee (Trying it out – will likely raise down the road)
Yes, you, gone in 1 year, guaranteed or money back. The 12-month program is called “Gone in 1 Year” (heehee!)
You know, as a man gets older (not “old,” just older), he labels his experience as worthy to pass on. Women…they have the miracle of birth, but for us guys, passing on knowledge is pretty much all we got. So, I guess, given the chance, we run with it. 🙂
Last week, a 16-year boy wrote to me, asking for advice. He admires his dad whose own corporate career included assignments abroad. The boy lived overseas for half his life, and wants to continue it himself. Very cool to hear.
