Don't be like me

Let me tell you a story. I remember when I first moved to Mexico. I was full of excitement. I had read a bunch of articles and watched even more videos. I booked a month-long airbnb (first mistake!) and a one-way ticket to what I thought would be a Mexican paradise. You can imagine how surprised I was when I found out my airbnb was in the middle of nowhere, had no hot water, and was a hit among the cockroaches! Needless to say, I flew back to the US a few short weeks later. I could have saved my time, money, and sanity if I had only known what I'm sharing with you in this course.
