I’ve made understanding how you can use Live in Brazil (pronounced “Live” as in “Living”) as easy as 3 steps:

Here is a quick 1 minute video introduction:


A “front porch” for the community :  Think about a nice open front porch where grandma comes with a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies and homemade lemonade, where all of the neighborhood chit chat happens.  This is what I would like you to envision this site as being, but in a virtual form.  Heck, if I could, I would invite you all over to hang out on my front porch whenever you wanted!  But I know that this isn’t possible due to distance – fortunately, the internet allows this in a digital way.  Cookies and lemonade anyone??

An effective toolbox : having an effective toolbox is all about choosing the right tools for the right job.  I see it time and time again, a site (or forum) with a jungle of information that confuses people and frustrates them.  Here, we need to have a nice, organized, clean and valuable toolset at your disposal!

Valuable and useful : I want it to get cemented in – my aim is to present valuable and useful information for you as a foreigner to be able to make the move to and live in Brazil – without charging on this website!  This may raise the question “why free, is there a catch?”, there is no catch at all all info is free on this site – I don’t make products to sell.  But I do need to make a small disclaimer: if you purchase any products through any of my affiliate links, I do get a commission – to which I say, thanks for your support!  But you are obviously not required nor will I push you to do so!


A bully that takes your lunch money : I am not after you pocketbook in anyway, so please do not feel that way.  I’m here like a good friend would be, to point out the do’s and don’ts, give you pointers, maybe make some recommendations on tools to make help you live life to the fullest – and that’s it!

A place that does all the work for you :  I want to be clear about this point, moving to another country is a lot of hard work.  But if you don’t have the right tools and know the right tricks, it will be even harder – this is where Live in Brazil comes in.  Here is a practical example: if you are alone, you may make 5 trips to the cartorio (notary public – used for everything in Brazil!) chasing different documents and things, but what if you cut it down to 1 trip instead if you knew how?  That would save you a lot of time and headache – this has actually happened to me before and I don’t want it to happen to you!  And this is why I’m sure that the tools and tricks learned on this site, will keep you from these types of situations.

Foreigners in or on their way to Brazil have never been accurately represented on the internet, which I really view as being sad due to the fact that they are such a strong community!  Here is to having a place for us to be and invite others to be – Live in Brazil.

I invite you to participate in this strong, passionate and vibrant community.  Come learn and share in the insider information that will trully change your life and be a springboard for a successful and happy life in Brazil.

Please read this bit carefully!

I’m not some crazy live in Brazil guru guy, my advice and techniques are based on common shared knowledge from our community, my desire is just to “expose” them more accurately.  I can in no way guarantee you success and happiness.

This is why you don’t see me offer paid consultations on this site of any type, I do my best to give you all the information that you may normally have to pay for completely free.

Moving to and living in Brazil takes a lot of hard work, a lot of patience and some luck along the way.  I know that I have an inspirational story and my desire is to put it out there so that it can inspire others.  Speaking from my own experience is the only way I know how to accomplish this, so please don’t feel that you owe me anything – in any way!  I am here for you and to serve and help you!

I won’t write hard sales pages or “fluffed” up information to try and make you spend money, just reviews and studies based on my own life experience with moving to and living in Brazil.

I appreciate you taking the time to read this and look forward to seeing you on the blog!

Cheers, all the best, and please share the love!
