Jim Lennertz is an American-born entrepreneur and adventurer. Raised in a beach town during California's "Golden Age," he became a self-described "well-educated surfer" who gathered real-world experiences and realized that the prescribed life path was not for him. He currently lives with his wife in Southern Brazil, and he’s also an admin in our private Facebook group at ExpatMoneyForum.com. In this conversation, Jim describes why he now calls Brazil home and gives tips for expats on assimilating into local culture.

TODAY'S CONVERSATION WITH JIM LENNERTZ

  • Hear Jim recount his expat origin story! Find out how life events, a magazine article and an abundance of frequent flyer miles led him to Brazil.
  • Jim and I reminisce about our first encounters online, where Jim would give me grief about my Portuguese. We had a blast catching up!
  • Listen in as Jim breaks down why he believes it’s so important for expats to assimilate into the local culture and not just stay within the confines of the expat bubbles.
  • Hear Jim and I discuss the importance of “breaking bread” in person, especially today when so many of our interactions are digital.
  • We discuss why Jim feels more safe and secure with his current situation in Brazil than he would if had the same situation back in California, which he calls a “dead state walking.”
  • Jim and I go back and forth a bit on the pros and cons of investing in agricultural land based on our slightly different outlooks. If you’ve thought about investing in agricultural land, you cannot miss this conversation!
  • Listen to us discuss why learning the local language as an expat is not just a convenience; it’s a matter of personal responsibility.
  • Lastly, Jim makes the by-the-numbers case for why Brazil is one of the safest places you could be in the event of World War Three.

CONCLUSION

I had such a great time speaking to Jim and getting his real-world perspective on integrating into a new culture as an expat. Having spoken with Jim plenty of times, both online and in person, over the last few years, I knew this conversation would be a blast, and Jim didn’t disappoint. So come on over to ExpatMoneyForum.com and join the conversation - and if you’re lucky, you’ll get to argue with Jim :)

JOIN US IN PANAMA - FLY'N BUY TOUR

Beginning of Q4, 2024, the Panama government has already stated that they are increasing the investment minimums for immigration from $300k to $500k for real estate; we also expect them to make this process more difficult! Because of this, I have decided to run a few quick trips to Panama for our community. Seeing the real estate in Panama is an important part of the due diligence process, that’s why I would like to pay for you to join me in Panama. All you have to do is sign up for the tour at https://expatmoney.com/fly, pay for the tour, and if you end up finding a property that fits your needs on the trip, then the amount you paid for the tour PLUS your airfare (up to $1000 USD) will be taken off the purchase price, making the entire tour and flights essentially free for you. Why am I offering you this awesome deal? Because my hope is you will hire me and my lawyers to do your immigration work! Our company has helped hundreds of people successfully go through the immigration process in Panama, and we do an excellent job, if I do say so myself. This is a service we offer to everyone in our community, but you have to choose a good property that will qualify you first.
