“Are you available for a paid phone call / video chat?”


Fee: I charge $500 for a thorough conversation, with prep via email followed by a 1-hour(+) video chat to review, payable in advance. That is a small 0.05% of a $1 million portfolio. Plus, what is piece of mind worth, really?

After the initial call, additional time is available at a rate of $250/hour.

Preparation: I ask that you prepare 90 minutes worth of questions, and email them in advance. This ensures we are both ready for a fruitful discussion.

Expectations: We have 8+ years of experience with early retirement, world travel, medical tourism, geographic arbitrage, tax minimization, and travel hacking. Sometimes reviewing things with somebody who has “been there, done that” is the best thing to finalize a plan.

Format: I’m on Zoom.

Disclaimer: I am just a random guy on the Internet with no qualifications whatsoever. You are responsible for your own decisions, investment and otherwise.

Guarantee: If you aren’t completely satisfied I’ll issue a full refund, no questions asked.
If you plan to be dissatisfied, our conversation won’t help you. All conversations are confidential.

Alternatives: The Go Curry Cracker Community Forum is a useful and free resource for questions and feedback.

Skepticism: Do people really pay for consulting? Yes and no – most people prefer a focused and individualized conversation but settle for the forum.

To get started: 

  1. Email me with:
    • the details of your financial situation (screen captures from Personal Capital are helpful but optional – affiliate link.)
    • an outline of your (retirement) goals and ambitions
    • list of questions
    • 3 recommended 90-minute timeslots in GMT+8 timezone. Best times for me are 10am – 3 pm GMT+8 M-F.
  2. Submit payment with a note that this is for a GCC consult

I will review your submission and reply or refund within 1 week. Not all submissions are accepted, sorry.

What others are saying

Thanks for the call and the great info. We’re very fortunate to have arrived at this point. This was super helpful!

I never would have been able to figure all of this out on my own. Thank you!

It was really helpful and equally important has given us direction, perspective, confidence.

Useful information, well worth your fee. I also want to tell you that your blog has been helpful because choosing not to be an employee isn’t widely supported, and it’s reassuring to hear that really, it’s ok to choose autonomy.
