In today’s episode, I bring to you a personal report of a portion of my month-long trip that I just returned from as we focus on my time in Turkey, including an update on the citizenship by investment I am working on from there. While it was an incredible trip, it wasn’t all roses, as we had some challenges to face along the way.
I don’t hold back – you’ll get the good, the bad and the ugly of my experience in Turkey, one of my favourite countries. Enjoy!

THE EXPAT MONEY SUMMIT

Well, that’s it for my trip to Turkey. While I went into this episode with the plan to discuss my entire trip, the conversation about Turkey and the efforts I am making to achieve my citizenship by investment was plenty enough to fill its own episode.
In a perfect world, I’d only have positive things to report about the process, but one of the reasons I do these programs is to find the roadblocks so that my clients don’t have to. And rest assured, when it’s all said and done, I will be the owner of a Turkish passport.
