    Episode 58: Experiencing Life to the Fullest in Ecuador with Sheryl Strong

    Episode 58: Experiencing Life to the Fullest in Ecuador with Sheryl Strong

    Sheryl Strong is a serial entrepreneur who enjoyed working for herself most of her adult life, but not the struggle to make ends meet as single mom. She wondered if she could ever afford to retire and decided it would only be possible if she moved out of the the United States.  She looked at many options and took an exploratory trip to Ecuador and was hooked.  Luck and good fortune smiled on her in 2019 when she sold her 4 year old specialty restaurant in Prescott, Arizona.  She moved her proceeds to an offshore CD that earns 9.65%.  Her rent is $680 a month for a modern 1600 square foot apartment overlooking the river in Cuenca. It would be a 2 million dollar apartment in New York.  Sheryl is never bored with a busy social calendar and 1-2X per week visits to a natural hot springs spa just a 30 cent bus ride away.  Her advice: don't contemplate, just do it!

Wow!

Wow amazing stories of success, kindness and fulfillment! These people are an inspiration to us all! I love the way Dawn interviews to get the best part of the stories out. I’ve been going to Isla Mujeres since the early ‘90’s so I’m familiar with a lot that’s being shared. How wonderful to hear one of the sponsors is Castillo del Caribe, I’ve stayed in that magnificent house and it’s by far the best place I’ve ever stayed in on the island, and there has been a lot of places over the last 3 decades. Thanks Dawn for providing us with your insight and ability to find these great people we can all be proud of and hope to achieve similar success and happiness!

Dawn uses her experience with that of others to encourage others to live the dream! Very motivating!
