Hi guys. Barry here. One question I hear often from people that are serious about moving to the Dominican Republic is can I work once I get there. As I’ve said before, the best opportunities that choose to be expats in the Dominican Republic, and any other developing country for that matter, is to start your own business. In today’s video I decided to interview an English expat that found his niche down here by starting an English school. Johnny, the owner of the Professional English Schools of Nagua and Cabrera, shares his experience in starting a business here and why he would never return to England or to the US. Along the way, Johnny shares the experience of his family with the healthcare system, healthcare insurance and the general day-to-day cost of living in this part of the world, compared to England and the US.
Johnny is one of our best friends in the Cabrera area and I am sure you will find his perspective comforting if you are struggling with whether or not expatriation might work for you and your family.
In this video we visit Johnny at one of his Professional English Schools and touch on many different topics that any expat might want to know.
