JOHNNY MUELLER’S AUGUST 2020,
LATIN AMERICAN “INSIDER” SEMINAR
Looking to get your PLAN “B” off the ground?
(How’s that PLAN “B” coming along anyway?)
HI EVERYONE, Johnny Mueller here:
(Host of the radio/podcast/YouTube show “THE EXPAT FILES- Living in Latin America”*)
Mark your calendar for Friday, August 21st thru Thursday, August 27th, 2020**… for my next “off the GRINGO tourist trail”, boots-on-the-ground Latin American adventure.
NOTE THAT MY AUGUST 2020 SEMINAR WILL BE EXTRA SPECIAL INDEED!!!!
Why is that?
I have been doing my “Expat Insider” seminars since 2010, and one of the questions I often get is “Johnny, why in and around Guatemala? Why not do it in another Latin country or two?”
This time we will be doing just that. We’ll be in and around Guatemala AND the country of EL SALVADOR (just south of, and sharing a border with Guatemala).
**If you wish to apply for Guatemalan residency be sure to plan on-staying another 7 working days immediately before or after the seminar. That way you can save a trip down and kill two birds with one stone. We will make the hotel/ accommodation and transportation arrangements for you. And don’t worry, you won’t be stuck in a hotel for that week either. Our amazing Seminar coordinator Rita is in charge of arranging “boots on the ground” trips and tours. For example, you might want to see the towns around Lake Atitlan (the most beautiful lake in the world)or you might include extended “boots on the ground” adventures in Antigua, Guatemala City, or you may want to see the most desirable burbs and residential areas that are recommended for gringos and expats, or perhaps book an appointment with our highly recommended USA trained dentist and oral surgeon Dr. Alex or maybe see a dermatologist or other specialist. You might want Rita to set you up with any variety of her hand-picked pre and post seminar excursions. As soon as you sign up for the seminar she will be in touch by email, Skype and/or Whats App to help you arrange anything and everything to do with the seminar as well as any “boots on the ground” excursions you might have on your wish list.
ABOUT THAT “BOOTS ON THE GROUND” PART I PROMISE YOU WON’T GET WITH ANY OTHER SEMINAR…
After living many years down here and making many great contacts and connections, my Expat Insider team and I offer what no other seminar can: a private personal glimpse of Latin commercial, manufacturing, education, healthcare, banking, I.T., real estate, business and more that you will NEVER get from other Expat events. In fact, many of the places we’ll visit go are unknown by tourists, even long-term expats. Many of these doors are open only for me and my small groups.
ONCE AGAIN WE HAVE TWO VERY SPECIAL EXPERT EXPAT GUESTS!!!
#1- A world famous Bitcoin / crypto-currency expert (a seminar alumnus and Bitcoin multi-millionaire) will speak about world changing crypto-currency events. He’ll discuss the scams, the realities and how you can still get in on the huge profits yet to come(he’s betting on a second round crypto boom coming very soon). Of course he’ll answer all your crypto questions too!!
#2- We’ll also have an Expat cryptocurrency miner and self described anarchist who has been consistently making money mining Bitcoin and other “alt-coins” going all the way back to the crypto cowboy days-when there were no other “alt-coins” at all like etherium, litecoin, dash, etc., only Bitcoin. He is THE crypto mining expert.

!!! ABOUT APPLYING FOR RESIDENCY IN GUATEMALA!!!
ARE YOU INTERESTED IN APPLYING FOR RESIDENCY IN GUATEMALA? YOU CAN KILL TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE BY APPLYING WHILE DOWN FOR THE SEMINAR. YES, YOU CAN DO BOTH AND SAVE TIME, MONEY AND AN EXTRA AIRLINE TRIP. GUATEMALA IS STILL ONE OF THE EASIEST AND LEAST EXPENSIVE LATIN COUNTRIES TO OBTAIN RESIDENCY BUT THINGS ARE CHANGING FAST. THIS EASY RESIDENCY OPPORTUNITY WILL NOT LAST SO CONSIDER IT A GREAT OPTION IN YOUR “PLAN B” SCENARIO. OUR SEMINAR LAWYER JOSE IS READY TO ASSIST YOU IN THE PROCESS AND YOU WILL RECEIVE ALL OF THE RESIDENCY DETAILS AND INFO AS SOON AS YOU SIGN UP. NOTE THAT IT WILL TAKE YOU APPROXIMATELY ONE MONTH TO GATHER UP THE NECESSARY DOCUMENTS FROM YOUR HOME STATE(LIKE YOUR FBI AND POLICE/SHERIFF GOOD CONDUCT REPORT). SO YOU SHOULD NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO GET STARTED.
MORE ON THAT LATER…
Ok! Now Here’s Our Seminar plan:
#1- We’ll visit businesses and factories* owned by long term US Expats who’ve had some amazing success (and failure) stories. Every Expat “gonnabee” wants to know how so many average first-world guys and gals from Cleveland or Detroit achieve such unusual success down here… especially with most arriving with zero Spanish, no contacts, and often very limited funds.
Here’s your chance to see and hear how life really is for gringos “south of the border”, and well off-the-tourist-trail, from the Expats themselves- instead of from so-called internet expat “experts” (with their thinly disguised real estate pitches).
That means we’ll be rubbing elbows and having lunch and dinner with owner/operator Expat friends of mine. And they’ll be more than glad to connect with you as new friends after the seminar as well to discuss your own business thoughts and ideas. And believe me, as soon as you get here the business ideas will really start bubbling up!
(Now tell me; where can you get a promise like that from those big “International Living” type cattle-call seminars of 250 people or more?)
#2- We’ll have a guided tour of a very first-world hospital complex and medical specialty center presented by English speaking medical doctors and specialists. You’ll see exactly how ultra-affordable full-coverage medical insurance plans work down here… plans that Expats can sign on to, with no waiting period, age limit or physical required! We’ll show you both single and family plans available for as little as $75 per month that include a dental plan, drug plan, and life insurance!
Not possible you say? You’ll see. Yes, you’ll see….
#3- We’ll check out that out-of-control commercial and residential real estate bubble (cracking around the edges and about ready to pop) and show you insider tricks to take full advantage as it blows.
#4- We’ll slog through one of the biggest, craziest, most chaotic fresh produce, food and pirated goods market in Latin America (an absolute eye-opener that even few long-term Expats get to experience). Once there you’ll see hundreds of people hawking and buying goods at a fourth or less of first world prices- with not a first world person to be seen (except in our little group of course) and not a single word of English spoken either! But don’t worry, we’ll have our crack bilingual translators along at all times to answer and translate all of your questions, and more.
#5- There will also be many surprises and fantastic “boots on the ground” stops: way too many to list here…
Talk about the Gringo Advantage!!!
What makes my “Insider” Seminar different?
This is definitely not your typical International Living style “cattle call” seminar… no real-estate pitch…no hidden sales pitch at all. Just the opposite. And while we’re on our real estate tour you’ll see the “bubble” deflating in all its pre-Corona glory. You’ll see why its a fantastic “renter’s” and buyer’s market right now and hear insider tips on how to scoop up deals for 25 tom 50 cents on the dollar. More importantly, you’ll find out how to really low-ball the sellers and learn what NOT to buy at any price (no matter how great the deal looks).
AND NOW A VERY, VERY IMPORTANT POINT:
Note again that our group will be small. That means during classes, meals, and on the road boots-on-the-ground, we’ll all be hanging together as a tight little group, most all of the time. We’ll also be hanging out with some Expats and Expat business people that I’ll introduce along the way. Many will tag along at our dinners, etc. Meaning there will be some intense networking going on.
So think about it…with such an arrangement, don’t be surprised when some of us end up lifelong friends and even business partners (that happens with all of my seminars).
THE SPECIAL EXPAT “INSIDER” ADVANTAGE:
Mr. James P., who attended both my “Expat Insider” Seminar and the latest INTERNATIONAL LIVING SEMINAR, had this to say about that “OTHER” mega-seminar:
…Yes, previously I attended one of those big, widely promoted INTERNATIONAL LIVING seminars in Panama. It was all good material, but basically stuff you can get staying home and surfing the net yourself… and believe me, you can forget about actually schmoozing one-on-one with any of the speakers… you’re lucky to get a ‘hello’, a handshake and a “selfie” at the meet-and-greet. Oh yeah, and people did try to push their pet real estate projects. As for boots-on-the-ground… you get plenty: walking from salon to salon at the hotel and around that maze of an airport…
You get the picture? You must get real “insider” BOOTS-ON-THE-GROUND experiences (jam packed in my seminar) or the trip will be just another fun, tropical vacation.
What people are saying about my seminars:
Now that I am back on my treadmill, I am taking a few moments out to thank you for a great seminar. You kept your promise and provided more information that you could squeeze into our time together….
One of the things that most Expats worry about is if they will meet people that they can become best friends with when they move to a strange country. The seminar made me realize that most of the people who are Expats are looking for the same things that I am. It makes it very easy to bond. We had so much in common that everyone seems to be thinking the same thoughts…
Chris & BJ
Check out the following seminar review….
Just in case I have not said it enough, thank you for all your info and attention to detail. The entire week was fun, comfortable, and informative. You are just a wealth of info.
I’m back in the states now (I only wish my neighborhood smelled like that coffee plantation….) It took me awhile to get back in the groove of things here, mainly because I did not want to. I find myself daydreaming about all the business potential back there. It just keeps flowing through my mind, new ideas keep hitting me, again and again. I can only imagine how many great ideas would come to me after only a month of being there.
Then there’s this great comment from a married couple….
What a great event! Well we couldn’t have asked for more. And when I got back I hit the good ol’ US like a wall, when right when we got to Houston they harassed my wife and we had FIVE security checkpoints. Believe me it was a slap in the face to reality…but the highlight of the trip other than the beauty of Antigua and Lake Atitlan (incredible) was the amazing UFM Libertarian University. To see an environment of education that embodies the lessons of freedom lost up here in the land of liberty deep in the so- called third world was so refreshing and impressed me to no end! That said, everything we did was valuable and enjoyable. Now back to “educating” my better half to get her back down!
How about a few words from another married couple who stayed on an additional month after the seminar to explore their own boots-on-the-ground experiences …
I thought it was all so interesting and the translator gals were fabulous. They made a huge, huge difference in ordering meals and explaining things. They were so patient and caring and really available. Even when I imagine they might have been tired they were right there ready to assist…. and Attorney Jose is amazing, really helpful too. He seems like one who can really be trusted.
The presentation on the insurance plans was very comprehensive and well-presented …
Finally, thank you, Johnny. It is a real boon to get your perspective. We have extended our trip and are off having our own experiences and learning as we go. I only wish I had more language under my belt but that will come.
Then we have this unsolicited letter an attendee sent not to me, but to Richard Martin, host of a very popular finance-themed international radio/podcast show……
…..I wanted to send you a short note about Johnny Mueller’s recent seminar in Guatemala. I attended the seminar expecting to see 3rd world squalor and crime, with the hope of actually “ruling out” moving away from the good old U.S, Land of the Free.
Well, that didn’t exactly happen… Guatemala turned out to be a true gem, what a beautiful country with everything you can imagine, along with the nicest people to boot.
I’ve been to many seminars and this seminar was fantastic – extremely well-done and very well-organized. It’s one thing to read about something and another thing entirely to see it first-hand “boots on the ground.” It was great to be able to spend time with other like-minded people and a real treasure to spend time and chat with Johnny and his associates – suffice it to say he’s the real deal.
This was a first-class seminar all the way from the tours, the transportation, the beautiful coordination/language assistants, the other attendees and connections, the food, the lodging, and the legal information and connections. Everything went smoothly, no hiccups at all – even in the rainy season!
I would very highly recommend this seminar to anyone else considering moving abroad and am currently formulating a plan to relocate…..
And now here’s a short two-minute audio clip that attendee DAVE sent. Just click on the tab. You’ll really want to hear it…
WE HAVE REPEAT OFFENDERS TOO….
Some people come not once or twice, but THREE TIMES!
Now some audio comments from past seminar attendees:
… just click on any of the buttons below and pay special attention to what these folks say about the dangers and their perceptions of insecurity in Latin America- what their own preconceived notions were before coming down versus the REALITIES after having “boots on the ground”.
The seminar will take place in Guatemala and El Salvador
Now as you know, Guatemala and and El Salvador and nearly all of Latin America get bad marks on the US State Department website and from the first-world media in general. But there are hundreds of towns, cities and neighborhoods that are as safe as Boise, Idaho- though the US media paints the whole region with the same brush. (A good thing for expats, a strange irony which we cover fully in the seminar!)
So, if you want a reality check regarding insecurity and crime on the trip, listen to what our past seminar attendees say about what it was like for them down. Just click on the names below… (or skip it and move on)
Now for more of our cast of characters…
- Johnny Mueller (me):
If you don’t know me by my radio/podcast show, “THE EXPAT FILES-Living in Latin America”, then do download or stream some of my 950 plus radio shows and 150 plus YouTube shows: available free on www.progressiveradionetwork.com, PRN.FM, I-tunes, Stitcher, www.Podbean.com, www.ExpatPlanB.com, YouTube and many other outlets.
In a nutshell: for thirty years I have lived in and around all twenty Latin countries and produced and hosted various talk shows broadcasting from Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Honduras and major Latin America markets, logging in well over 2000 hours of live radio time. With a first-world (useless) MBA and an (extremely useful) Engineering degree, I made my mark in the states long before smart phones, Big Brother and the internet (which means I’m an old school analog guy). I’ve also done well with diverse Latin based businesses (and flubbed a few too), and built a dozen houses in four different Latin countries.
I was that “clueless gringo” amateur contractor who came down without knowing a lick of Spanish, thinking I knew everything. After all, I built a few houses in the states. Boy was I wrong! I’m embarrassed now to admit it took me a good 5 years to effectively communicate with my own cleaning lady! (and yes, even expats living on a simple Social Security check can afford a cleaning lady and a gardener). I admit to being a language dunce, but it proves the point that any first-world person with less than kindergarten Spanish can skid along nicely on what I call “The Gringo Advantage*”.
*If you don’t know about the “Gringo Advantage’ .. its a special Cinderella effect we gringos have in Latin America. It does have a counterpart up in the first world… for example, when your average British guy lands on US soil, as soon as he opens his mouth he gets the ‘visiting dignitary’ treatment from everyone, even if he was just a plain old cabdriver back in the UK. I call that the “British Advantage”. The “Gringo Advantage” is like that, but more so and better!
We gringos get special treatment in Latin America (though it takes a while before we realize it). Once you land here (especially off the tourist trail) it’s like instantly adding 2 or 3 points to the standard one to ten scale you had back in the states.
My #1 achievement?
Discovering how to live extraordinarily well on a small fraction of the money it took me to live the good life back in the states… with none of that killer first-world stress. Though none of that happened until I’d spent a few years stepping in potholes along the way… my job is to teach you how to sidestep that stuff!) At the seminar, we’ll be showing you how to use that special “Gringo Advantage” and its magic effects in crucial areas like business, marketing, renting, buying, etc., etc., and with social relationships too. Now I know it’s quite un–PC to talk about such unjust things but hey, the world ain’t fair, so why not take advantage of it while you can? After all, Latin America is about the last place left on earth where the locals still actually respect and admire us gringos. All you have to do is visit practically anywhere else in the rest of the world and see we are NOT greeted with open arms.
That “Gringo Advantage” I’m talking about is a godsend in business too. Expats, with their inborn first-world-know-how and attention to detail have a far better chance at business success south of the border than they ever could or would have stateside. Up there it’s a highly-regulated and expensive rat race with cutthroat competition. Down here for example, Latin businesses have almost no concept of customer service – which is often the key to success in businesses up North. We Expats excel because all of our lives we’ve been exposed to competition, customer service, cleanliness, ergonomics and fine-tuned business efficiency. That stuff comes natural to us whether we know it or not… at least we know what NOT to do!
Note that once you get rolling in Business down here and have your paperwork in order, those toothless, lazy, Latin government regulating agencies simply leave you alone! What a welcome difference and relief!
Its a painful fact that 9 out of 10 first-world small businesses up in the states FAIL in the first two years. And when newly arrived first-world gringos mention those dismal stats to long-time Expats, we just shake our heads and think, “Obviously pal, you haven’t been in Latin America very long!”
OK, back to our seminar’s cast of characters……
- Our Latin Legal Specialist, Seminar Attorney–José:
He has a huge resume but I’ll cut it short…
Jose and his father (a past presidential cabinet member, but we won’t hold that against him) – are principals in a law firm that’s been around for 30 years. Jose has connections and knows his way through the bureaucracy and BS. Whether you’re planning to retire, buy property, get residency, invest, open an S.A corporation, do a complicated or a plain vanilla business start-up… he’s an Expat’s best friend. So if you’re planning on setting up offshore accounts, corporations, trusts, etc., just meeting Jose and hearing what he as to say is worth much more than the cost of this or anyone’s seminar event (people tell me that all the time). And of course expats love him for his ability to work out both the easy and the tough details of things like intellectual property issues, trademark, copyrights, title transfers, etc. Oh, and he’s a law school university professor too and speaks almost perfect English. However, being Latino, he is also on “manana time”… but so is everybody else down here! That’s part of why Latinos live healthier and more stress free lives than folks back in the states (but you knew that already).
Our Secret Weapons – The Bilingual Brigade:
On my “Expat Files” show I mention how so many average gringos and gringas come down to Latin America and have great success without knowing much or any Spanish at all. Yes, we still rise to the top of the heap without much effort just by being our good old natural first-world selves. It’s part of our “Gringo Advantage” but it takes time to get oriented and meet the right people . Expats do need connections, the right connections. I’ve seen countless gringos spend months even years spinning their wheels because they didn’t make the right connections right off the bat. That’s another great reason to attend the seminar…
One of the ways you can use your inborn first-world opportunity-spotting skills from day one is to hire a Latin American 100% bilingual secretary/Girl Friday – and of course if you wish, she or he will double as a tour guide and all round trouble shooter too.
What do I mean by troubleshooter? It’s like this, when you hire a local translator born and raised in let’s say Panahachel, Guatemala, she will know a few things about that town and general area you and I could never know…like someone from Cleveland knows, well…Cleveland! That means if you spot a nice cheap property in at a fire sale in the local paper, just by knowing the address, and without even seeing the area, she’ll know exactly what kind of neighborhood it and what kind of services are available, the infrastructure, the stores, the zoning, the general feel and attitude of the people, the area and the mix of businesses and residential. She’ll know if dogs bark at night, kids kick balls at all hours in the streets, if its “hospital zone” and quiet or polluted with noisy Chicken buses. Most importantly, a local person like her will know how safe and secure the area is night and day. You get the picture? Down here you can hire a person like that full-time or by the week or day.
And of course my seminar #1 point lady Rita, can help you set that up.

Speaking of real estate- everyone wants to know about the Latin American real estate market…
I will not pitch any real estate like other seminars eventually do. None of that here….. of course you did know that 99% of those Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador and Uruguay seminars are thinly disguised property pitches? Well good! That means you’ve been paying attention.
Those one-size-fits-all seminar folks have huge support staffs, so to survive they need a slew of their own products to sell, but when it comes to me and my crew it’s just the facts, and that’s what you’ll get….
About Latin American real estate post Corona Virus:
First-World Style Real Estate is everywhere in Latin America. And now that the bubble has popped there is desperation in the market and people are defaulting on loans and rents in record numbers- just like up in the states. The difference is that in Latin America there are NO GOVERNMENT REAL ESTATE BAILOUTS, NO EMERGENCY LOANS OR MORTGAGE AND RENT FORGIVENESS PLANS. That means desperate sellers are coming out of the woodwork in big numbers. That also means anyone with cash will find deals of a lifetime. Beautiful properties at 25 to 50 cents on the dollar will be commonplace, but beware. You must pick the neighborhoods and projects very carefully. For example, it would be a huge mistake to buy into a luxury condo complex (even at 25 cents on the dollar) when all the other owners are 3 months behind on their mortgages. But how can you know? Well, you’ll learn the in’s and out’s and the do’s and don’ts during the real estate portion of the seminar.
Keep in mind I have personally bought, built and sold over a dozen houses and buildings in four different Latin countries. In fact I built my first three projects knowing virtually no Spanish at all. That means almost any gringo can do it. But you need to hear the ground rules from expats like me who’ve done it and made certain mistakes. Not to brag, but I know more about building, buying and selling properties than a truck full of silver-tongued Latin (or USA) real estate agents or architects. And I guarantee if you follow my tips you will save tens of thousands in the process.

NOTE: For privacy reasons the above is a much abbreviated version of the agenda. You will be sent a more complete and detailed agenda as we get closer to the seminar launch date.
IS THIS “OFF THE TOURIST TRAIL” LATIN AMERICAN ADVENTURE FOR YOU?
You already know the first-world has cracked at the edges and the reset button has been pushed. If you regularly check the news, the internet and the alternative media you have to be nervous about your own future, and scared too. Who isn’t?
No, I don’t mean scared about the Latin American trip! I mean scared about what’s happening right now in the States and Europe…unsolvable problems too numerous to list: Big Brother, NSA surveillance, drones, the FED, the IRS, mind-numbing debts, mega student loan defaults, undeclared wars, the Obamacare disaster, bank bail in’s, the shredding of the Constitution and the incredible shrinking dollar … all the tipping points swaying, tilting and falling one by one.
So how does all that great news square with your personal situation? Have you got your Plan “B” settled?
By the way, have you driven around any big US city lately?
If you have you know it’s best to drive fast, with your windows rolled up good and tight, and it’s gonna get worse.
If you’re one of those flag wavers who thinks the good old U.S. of A. just needs a little shove or a kick in the pants, or a Trump or a Bernie Sanders to get it back on track… you don’t need this seminar, you need to double up on your meds.
Seriously now; what’s your retirement package like? Do you have one or are you counting on social security? If that’s the case you might start practicing for the future by sampling some cat food.
I know a percentage of Americans say things are tough but they’ll be ok. Some have a nice income for now and/or a good retirement plan (they probably work for the government). The day of reckoning is coming so why dissuade them of that fantasy?
But as for the rest of us… wouldn’t it be grand to triple your purchasing power and live like a king (or queen) instead of perpetually losing ground along with the rest of the evaporating middle class?
You can have all that and much less stress.
In Latin America you can do it with ease…. I’m talking about jumping off the treadmill, living a better, healthier, and more laid-back lifestyle. And best of all do it without sacrificing first-world amenities. And guess what? Most of us middle-class expats have full time maids and gardeners to boot! (that’s an utter impossibility for all but the filthy rich in the states). And yes, I’m talking about expats who live solely on a SS check who have full-time maids! Sounds unbelievable right?
Here’s a little secret: Expats don’t come down to live like the locals or like Peace Corps volunteers, retro-hippies, or Mormons. We come down here because we know we can live 100% first-world lives at third-world prices- that means quite nicely on a social security check.
HOW FAR ALONG IS YOUR PLAN “B”?
Come down and see how it’s done! See how you can successfully follow in the footsteps of others. Don’t get stuck spending money needlessly and spinning your wheels or end up re-inventing the wheel:
That would be a bit nuts. Believe it or not that still happens to untold thousands of fresh, green gringos and would-be Expats. I can’t tell you how many first-world folks come down intending to retire or are all fired up with great business plans, only to chase their own tails for a year or two. They drop loads of money on lawyers, translators, fast talking real-estate scammers and con-men.
I’ve seen first-hand how many green gringos get sold on “once in a lifetime” beachfront properties and such. That stuff happens every day in gringo-saturated areas like Costa Rica, Mexico, Colombia and Panama. Bottom line, practically every gringo who tries to do the “Expat thing” by himself gets stung like a starry-eyed rube in the big city. But that won’t happen to you, right? It’s a fact of life that most every newbee expat gets off to a slippery start… I sure did. Why do it the hard way?

Knowing you will be a long way from Cleveland- and this might be your first trip “off the tourist trail”- don’t forget the spectacular pre and post-seminar side trips our expert seminar coordinator RITA has arranged in and around Guatemala. With a little planning, you will definitely be able to fit it a lot of amazing stuff….A little exploring should be in your plan, especially if you are killing two birds with one stone by applying for Guatemala residency while down for the seminar. Why? Because you see, if applying for residency, you must plan on staying on in Guatemala for 7 working days before or after the seminar. Now wouldn’t it be crazy to stay holed up in a hotel all that time? That’s what Rita’s side trips are all about…a terrific way to know Guatemala and the surrounding areas and a great way to make some invaluable connections at the same time.
That said, I urge prospective seminar attendees to add a few days to the back or front end of your trip to explore, and be sure to add at east 7 working days if you are applying for Guatemalan residency. Of course we’ll help and hold your hand through all of it..
