1-on-1 Coaching

Work with Expat Empire founder David McNeill to confidently make progress toward your goals

Looking for a guide to achieving your goals?

Whether you want advice about how you can move to a foreign country, plan your next travel adventure, change your career, or start your own business, most people would benefit from having someone who’s done it before helping them throughout the process. 

Figuring out how to get started, determining what to do next, and staying on track to meet your deadlines is exhausting to manage on your own. Don’t you want to have someone on your side who can show you the ropes every step of the way?

I'm ready to help

My name is David McNeill, and I’m the founder of Expat Empire. As a long-time expat, avid traveler, and remote entrepreneur, I’d be delighted to work with you and provide the guidance, accountability, and advice you need to find the success you’ve been searching for!

I’ve been through all the ups and downs of long-term travel, moving and working abroad, transitioning my career from finance to tech, and starting my own remote businesses many times before. I will alleviate your concerns, guide you through the obstacles you’re likely to encounter in your journey, and set you up for success. I want to be your primary point of contact throughout the challenging but satisfying process of pursuing your dreams!
