How This Family of 4 Lives on Less Than $2k USD

I know this post is going to inspire you today!

Because if you’ve ever been in a situation where you feel like you might have to work until you die, I want to show you that you don’t! Or you might be tired of the regular 9-5 grind that doesn’t allow you to be free to use your time on the things that YOU WANT TO DO.

In today’s live stream, I interviewed April who lives in San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas.

San Cris is a beautiful town in the mountains of Chiapas where coffee is abundant, the weather is very cool, and the cost of living is very low!

    Please forward my email contact to April and her family… I would very much enjoy having their company and conversation when I come to visit … and their advice all things pertinent to relocation to the area.

    Best regards,
