Early Retirement in Colombia: David Hay's Story - Ep 50
David is an Australian-American living the early retirement life in Medellin, Colombia. He grew up in a rural town in Australia, where he quickly realized that his opportunities were quite limited. In his late teens, he made a strategic, yet bold decision to pack up and move to the U.S in search of bigger and better opportunities. Among other things, he started and sold a few businesses, invested in real estate & stocks, and got into cryptocurrency investment and the youtube game. He says that he has always had the ability to identify emerging businesses, technology, and investment opportunities. This ability and a good dose of old-fashioned hard work are what gave him the opportunity to retire at the tender age of 32. David tells us about his journey to early retirement and how he ended up settling down Colombia. We also chat about his successful crypto-currency YouTube channel, dating, lifestyle design, and a whole lot more.
Meet the OG's of Medellin's Gourmet Restaurant Scene - Rob & Carmen
When asked what prompted their decision to move to Medellin back in 2008 to open their first restaurant, Rob almost instinctively answered - "ALCOHOL".
For us, there couldn't have been a better start to the history of some of Medellin's most reputable gourmet restaurants - Carmen, Moshi, Sushi Bar, Humo, and Don Diablo. After all, this podcast was also inspired by ALCOHOL and a love for Medellin.
If you've lived, visited, or planned on visiting Medellin, you've most likely eaten at, or at least heard of, one of their restaurants. The dynamic duo of Carmen Ángel and Rob Pevitts sit down with us for an unfiltered account of the past, present, and future of their restaurants.
