In Episode 32 I spoke with expat Verina Olivari who shared very openly her decision to change her life and design it the way she wanted. She felt in order to do this she had to break free from those who influenced her the most. For her it was friends and family so she decided to limit communication with them and go after her dream of becoming an actress. Verina set out on a two year journey that ranged from pursuing an acting career in Hollywood to finding out acting wasn't really what she wanted. Now she lives in Nicaragua with the man she loves, has a great relationship with her family and runs a super cool cyber cafe in Nicaragua. Her story is one that really inspires me because she had to make some really big sacrifices in order to find out who she was and what she wanted. Sometimes the ones we love the most are the ones holding us back. Success as Varina says only comes when you're willing to take responsibility for your life and design it the way you want. Verina did just that and says she is excited to keep shaping it in ways that give back to a world that has given her so much.

M&R Episode 005: Brian was sentenced to 10 years in a Mexican prison for smuggling marijuana.

In Episode 005 I sat down with expat Brian Friedricks. Brian doesn't fear death or prison because he has been to prison twice and died in a car accident once. He smuggled marijuana into the U.S. from Mexico for years. His cellmate was George Jung (Jonny Depp's character in Blow) when he got busted the second time. He now lives in Nicaragua and recently fought off being permanently paralyzed due to complications from his injuries. His presence to say the least is peaceful, calm and focused.
