Hello again!

It's Joyce, and I'm at your service.

Professional coach

I'm an overseas lifestyle coach for boomers, early retirees, and 'blaxit' folk just like you. I will help you create a lifestyle to live abroad successfully so you can embark on your life changing journey with confidence, absent the worry and overwhelm.

Back in the day, I was known for...

A multi-faceted skill set, which included project management and results-driven administration, which I now offer to help you achieve your goal of living overseas.

My dedication and attention to detail makes me uniquely qualified to support you through the process of beginning "a new life" overseas.  You see, after working hard for nearly thirty years and buying into the  "American Dream", I found that I could not afford to retire there comfortably.  And frankly, with no affordable medical care, racial inequality and widening wealth gap, I knew I could find a much more promising environment abroad here in Panama.  So, for those of you who can relate, yes, I have been there and I can ensure you I will bring a level of expertise and understanding that you can trust for creating your special life abroad.

Why?  Because You have earned it.  You deserve a respite in paradise.  After a lifetime of work and for many, overcoming the challenges of living in the USA, you crave peace and tranquility, or perhaps you want to be able to afford to live comfortably on limited resources.  I know that's why I left.  So, let me show you how you can do it too!  Let me help you make your move overseas a success!  Let me work with you to create for YOU an incredible life overseas!

Yes! I'm living the good life now, but it wasn't always this way.....I worked the grind of corporate America only to find that I couldn't afford to retire there!

I am a serial entrepreneur. I was a Boss! I used to be an extreme multi-tasker back in the day who single-handedly as a WBE/MBE developed, owned, and managed over 200 affordable housing rental units while fostering capacity in grass-roots community nonprofits to do the same.

My penchant for details and paperwork came in handy because there was plenty of it!  Also, I was a successful grant writer before I was a developer that proved to be very useful in that I was able to successfully apply for financing needed to build. But that is all behind me now, after more than 20 years of housing development, a big and major chunk of my life I essentially discarded, turning the page so to speak, a decision that later proved to be right on more levels than I thought.

For many, who reach retirement age (like me) just want to be content and laid back.  We have lived a lifetime on the grind (for our generation that's close to thirty or more years!) and now we just want to rest a bit, certainly relax and possibly reinvent ourselves.

I can relate, because currently, I am a permanent resident of Panama! I came here two years ago, semi-retired as I figured things out, and to continue to travel as well because you see, it has always been a dream of mine to live in another country.

It has been a roller-coaster journey, however. The last few years I struggled to find my place, my new beginning.  As a serial entrepreneur, I am working now to make BLAST! the sunset career that will not only benefit me but others also... one that will allow me to help others while earning income to live comfortably and travel the world. Sounds wonderful, doesn't it?

I am confident that my dogged determination and resourcefulness to accomplish what I was able to achieve before leaving the U.S. will propel me to accomplish similar, if not, greater success abroad with BLAST! Tours  & Coaching. 


I look forward to doing the same for you also!

Because maybe, just maybe...

It's time for you to BLAST!?
