Live a Better Life - Live in Paradise - Live Work Retire in Thailand

A Better Life in Thailand Seminar

When you’re ready to live a better life, we can help.

We've been working exclusively to help people to seamlessly make the move to Thailand, because moving here without prior guidance will be costly, stressful and time consuming.

We’ll make your journey to retirement in paradise effortless by giving you the ultimate time and moneysaving short cut.

We’ve spent more than 200 hours creating the world’s most complete seminar on moving to and living in Thailand. Our “Retire in Paradise Thailand” seminar will help make your move easy with no mysteries or guess work on your part. This seminar is a comprehensive full-day course that covers literally everything about Thailand, from “A-Z”.

Here are a few key things you’ll learn:

  1. Where the best places to live in Thailand
  2. Whether you should rent or own your house or condo
  3. Which hospitals are rated the best; and where to go for dental work, skin and eye exams
  4. Which banks are most suitable to keep your money and valuables
  5. How to get a retirement visa, or other extended stay visas without the hassle
  6. How to retire in Thailand, even If you’re not of retirement age (like David)
  7. How to make friends and find a loving partner
  8. How to make the big move when you’re ready

This is just a brief sampling of what we’ll be teaching. After this intensive (but fun!) eight hour workshop… you’ll know more secrets to living successfully in Thailand than most that have lived here five or even ten years.

This isn’t just recycled information you’ll get from YouTube or from “International” magazines and websites, as 99 out of 100 of these sources do not know the real Thailand. This seminar is custom-tailored for the person seriously considering starting a brand new life over here, as we’ll give you “paint-by-number” instructions on how to go about doing this.

Plus, learn how to make money online – for real!

The second day of the seminar is a free bonus where we’ll teach you how to make money online.

Even though a pension of just $900 per month is all you’ll need to live a very good lifestyle here, it never hurts to have additional income. Especially if it’s just working a few hours a week running a fun and profitable online business.

On day two we’ll show you:

  1. How to start a profitable export business using eBay
  2. How to work freelance online in the comfort of your home
  3. How to make money writing ebooks, books and articles
  4. How to make a reliable income from Day Trading

You’ll get step-by-step instructions on how to make money from each of these online businesses. We won’t waste your time giving a bunch of teaser information that you may have seen at other seminars – you’re going to walk out of here ready to make money online, from anywhere in the world.

Even if you decide not to move to Thailand, these online moneymaking skills can be applied anywhere.

The online businesses that you’ll learn are what David and I do every day. So there’s no theory here – just tested and proven online moneymaking systems.

Your investment for the Retire in Paradise Thailand seminar, which includes the free moneymaking bonus day, is just $1197.

We’ve spent countless hours and thousands of dollars putting this information to together, and we’re proud to say it’s a seminar like no other. Just a few lessons from the first day of the seminar, will more than pay for itself.

The second day, where we show you how to make a good income working from your laptop on a beach or from your balcony overlooking a rainforest, is just icing on the cake.

There isn’t a seminar anywhere in the world like this one as this is the world’s only turnkey retirement seminar to living in Thailand.

Four reasons why you should meet us

There are many advantages to attending our live seminar rather than just purchasing videos, teleconferences, books, 'reports' and getting partial and potentially harmful information from Google and YouTube searches.

One, I'll be sharing hard hitting 'boots on the ground' information from having lived in Thailand for six years, speaking Thai and living in both Thai and expat-friendly neighborhoods. Not to mention all the insights from David who has studied Thailand so much, he could write a book on the subject (and when he does, you'll be the first to know).  We’ll walk you through the entire process of what you’ll need to do to make the move, and how to get settled in once you’re here. I estimate that this alone will save you at least the cost of the seminar, we can easily shave $3,000 off your rent for the first year - not to mention help prevent you from losing a fortune and suffering a lot of heartache from too quickly falling in love with a beautiful Thai girl (or soft-spoken Thai man).

Two, you’ll have access to the Expat Experts© live, and in person. David and I will stay up ‘till midnight if necessary to answer all your questions about living in Thailand or developing a profitable online business.

Three, I’m already living here in Thailand and David’s on his way. We know exactly what it's like to start a new life in a new, exotic and scary new world. It can't really be done alone. We’ll act as your critical contact point for when you move… and we’ll be here for you when you arrive.

Four, you’ll be able to network with dozens of other like-minded people at the seminar who are also planning to move to Thailand. Some of the people you’ll meet at the conference are likely to be your friends in Thailand for life.
