Mike Cobb’s Radio Show May 8, 2012

Posted by Mike Cobb on May 7, 2012 11:09:41 AM

Tuesday’s Radio Show will feature a couple of Expat Entrepreneurs and a young woman living in Panama. John Pinto is a fun loving guy who lives in Diriamba, a town that sits on the ridge that separates Managua from the Pacific ocean. It is also the Continental Divide for Nicaragua. Amazingly, you can see the Pacific Ocean only 16 miles away on most days, while the Atlantic Ocean is a good 350 miles away.


John Pinto – Fishing in Nicaragua for 20 years.

John loves the oceans, lakes and rivers of Nicaragua.  His passion is fishing, so much so that in his recent e-mail to me, he states, “Life to me is meaningless tasks in-between great fishing trips.” Got to love a guy with an attitude like that. But it’s not all about fishing.

John has a wonderful business here tying flies for the Bass Pro Shops and the Academy Sports Stores. His workshop employs 15 women who create masterpieces designed to entice a hungry fish to bite. In addition to flies, Johns workshop also produces worm jigs and spinner lures. He anticipates expanding into sewing bags and equipment for the fishing industry and well.


Portable Careers You Can Work While Living in Nicaragua

Lucy Culpepper is our second Expat Entrepreneur on the show. Lucy’s specialty is portable careers like writing, photography, and web based businesses. Her point to potential expats is that if you set up a business that you can do from anywhere, then your options for an overseas lifestyle are expanded widely. Lucy has been an expat in England, France, Spain and has travelled widely in the Americas as well.

20 Something and Living in Panama

Lauren Williamson is our 3rd guest on the show and she lives full time in Panama City. Except for the Expat Kids that Amanda interviews, she may be the youngest so far on the show. Lauren will talk about her life in Panama City as a young person and her work with Live and Invest Overseas. I caught up with Lauren at her conference in Scottsdale where attendees are learning about the various opportunities to own property in Nicaragua and around the world. In future shows, we’ll be talking with some of the attendees as well.

To tune in for Mike’s Gringo Life, Tuesday’s 6-8pm on the Overseas radio Network.
