French Canadian Expats Swap Snow For Tropical Sand

So what will a French Canadian find if they choose to bail out of the cold winters up north and come down to Cabrera Dominican Republic? It’s best to ask a French Canadian family that did just that. I’d like to introduce you to Caroline (Canadian attorney) and Toney (serial Canadian entrepreneur) and their young kids. Caroline left her legal practice and Toney put his Canadian businesses on autopilot and they headed for the tropics, only to land in Cabrera. Of course, Toney being a serial entrepreneur, it was inevitable that they would have the itch to start or buy a business in their new Cabrera home. So just weeks after moving to Cabrera, they purchased a restaurant and start with construction to double the size of the business. We interviewed them at their new restaurant in another video.

In this video we take a minute to stop by the oceanview home they are leasing to meet the kids and find out how they are adapting to this new life. No need for me to repeat what they said, check it out for yourself. What is worth focusing on here though is the apprehension so many parents face when they are considering a move… whether across town, across the country or especially outside the country.

I can’t tell you how many times I have heard people express a serious concern or even fear that “what if” their kids can’t adapt to such a drastic change. And that is from people that already know the handwriting is on the wall for the currency collapse and subsequent chaos that they will follow in the US, Canada and Europe.

Trust me folks… your kids will not have any problem at all making the move. I have heard it time and time again from dozens of expat families… the kids are the first to adapt and I haven’t found a single one that did not love it here. They find the schools and teachers much more personal and attentive to their individual needs. They find the local kids accepting and friendly. They enjoy the sense of family from all the families living around them and become part of one large supportive family.

Meet this French Canadian family at their home in this video.

every time I read the articles in here, it scares me into staying on track with our plan and affirms my recollections and choices from childhood….. Do you remember when you were a child, and you played games or cards all the time with a sibling or a friend, and you always lost and they always won. They always won because they were making up all the rules and they kept changing the rules in the middle of the game so they could win. Eventually you got so frustrated that you finally just quit and never played again. Have we learned nothing?

Does this sound familiar? You will not win the game of life or financial freedom in this country against a government who changes all the rules in the middle of the game. Each time you change your strategy to deal with the last rule change or law, they will stop you with the next rule change or law. You will never win their game so quit now and make your own game plan before you lose everything.

Take what you have not already lost and get out before it’s too late. Their Game is nearing the end and they will soon control every piece, every path, your every move and you will have nothing left. The door is closing.
