Expat Empire: Passport to working in Japan
Play • 53 min

David McNeill joins Ben and Burke to introduce Expat Empire - a company he created that is focused on inspiring people to live abroad and showing them how they can do it. Before moving abroad, David developed in his career first to enable more working options once he made it to countries outside of the US, and he has now gained valuable career experience in China, Japan,  Germany, and Portugal. He has also traveled to nearly 60 countries, and his many projects include the Passport to Working in Japan book, which can guide others who are hoping to move to Japan one day. Listen now to hear the journey David started on when he was very young to make it overseas and the ways he has overcome the many challenges he has faced both before and after making it abroad.
