    Episode 28: David Signer - From Portugal to Russia, From Tennis Coach to English Teacher, From Stress to Freedom

    Episode 28: David Signer





     


    On today's episode, I am joined by David Signer, a Portuguese-Swiss national who came to Russia with hopes of delivering high-quality tennis lessons to the most interested tennis enthusiasts. The reality quickly became anything but a positive experience. David tells all in this candid conversation between friends and former colleagues. 


    David's life in Portugal without mom and dad

    Discovering his love of tennis at a late age

    The offer to come to Russia

    First impressions and pitfalls

    A picnic that would change the course of his life

    David as a triathlete

    David and marriage

    ...and kids!

    Final words


     


    The Get Up & Get Out Podcast loves promoting people. We have this platform for that very reason - to give people a voice so that they may motivate others. As we learned today, David loves the triathlon world. IRONSTAR is a company that promotes Ironman events and is THE company that motivated David to become a better person physically. 


    In addition to David’s love of training he also loves helping children discover their love of learning through the English language. David and some fellow colleagues built and launched Language Patrol - a YouTube channel that teaches English to their students. Go on over to their channel, check’em out,  watch the videos and be sure to  show them some love by subscribing. If you find their videos to be helpful go ahead and share it with a friend or two - I’m sure David and the crew would really appreciate it!


     


    Thank you to David for coming on the show today. We wish him much success in Russia!

    Episode 26 - Alex and Geoff: America to Berlin - Two Americans, Two Stories, Two Bottles of Whiskey

    Episode 26 w/ Alex and Geoff

    https://www.agdwpodcast.com/


    In today's episode, I had the great pleasure to chat with Alex and Geoff, from Rhode Island and San Francisco, respectively. We had a blast getting to know each other and listening to these guys' stories of how they ended up in Berlin, Germany. 


    Seriously, these guys were awesome. We got to know Alex and Geoff through their stories, their experiences, and their tips; some of which they learned the hard way.


    Highlights:


    Alex got a call late at night from a friend who was living in Berlin. She just left the club at 5am - not many clubs in America are open that late!


    Geoff learned the hard way that Vienna is a bit expensive and jobs are scarce for foreigners.


    Alex lived in the kitchen above the cupboards.


    Both basically moved abroad with no job prospects in mind.


    Alex met his girlfriend the first night in Berlin.


    Geoff explains that for him, Berlin was a better choice for him - a guy in the tv/movie industry.


    Quotes:


    "You just gotta try it."


    "If you stay comfortable, you'll just stay at home."


    "Don't hope for the perfect circumstances." (fly over, get a job, etc.)


    "Berlin is not your classic European city."

    Episode 25: Joe Bautista - An investment advisor from the USA, now living in Colombia, South America

    Episode 25: Joe Bautista - An investment advisor from the USA, now living in Colombia, South America

    Episode 25: Joe Bautista talks about family life, his parents almost going broke,  military life, free college, working at the Pentagon, becoming a registered investment advisor and now helping other Latinos learn the tips and tools to successfully handling their finances and taking control of their future.



    "Coaching Latino Professionals to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually so they can have better careers, better relationships, and personal finances."



    In our talk, Joe describes his experience growing up in Oregon in a middle-income family. Both parents worked extremely hard for the life they wanted in America. 


    Joe went off and joined the Marines and over the years, his G.I. Bill offered him the opportunity to graduate with not one but two degrees. 


    On his journey, Joe found a nice paying, comfortable job working at the Pentagon...but, that just wasn't him. Beauracracy, routine, following rules, orders, and a regime he was all too familiar within the military, Joe wanted more!


    He saw his fellow Latino community struggling with finances and building wealth for years to come. He found is calling!


    Joe decided to dedicate his time and his life to applying the skills he had gained along with a long desire to fluently speak Spanish, he set off for Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama and as of this moment, he now resides in Medellín, Colombia - the land of "Eternal Spring". Did you know that Medellín is almost 5000 feet above sea-level...yeah, neither did I. I guess that allows for the 'eternal spring'!


    Joe explains to us why he left, what he's been up to and what his future goals are. 


    We hope you enjoy the episode and feel free to follow Joe or reach out to him - I'm sure he'll be more than happy to give you some tips, advice, or even jump on a call with you!

Very inspiring podcast

What I like about this podcast is that it’s not only educational but entertaining at the same time. And even though it’s main audience is people living abroad, any one could listen to it and be inspired by the stories of the guests.
