1-on-1 Coaching

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

Looking for a guide to life and travel abroad?

Whether you are moving permanently to a foreign country or just planning your next travel adventure, many of our clients want additional hands-on support throughout their journeys from someone who has done it before. 

Completing all the tasks you need to do, knowing what to focus on next, and staying on track to meet your targets and deadlines is exhausting to manage on your own. Don’t you want to have someone on your side, keeping you on track, and showing you the ropes every step of the way?

I'm ready to help

As Expat Empire’s founder, a long-time expat in 5 countries, and an avid traveler to more than 60 countries, I’d be delighted to work with you and provide the guidance, accountability, and advice you need to find the international success you’re looking for.

I’ve been through all the ups and downs of moving and traveling to new countries countless times before. I’ll alleviate your concerns, guide you through the obstacles you’ll encounter in your journey abroad, and set you up for success in new international environments. I’m ready to be your primary point of contact throughout the stressful process of going abroad!

Chad Lewis

USA to Europe

David offers specific advice that meets my particular needs, which I appreciate. I like that he is both personable and professional. It’s a nice mix. 

Christina Cassady

David was excellent to work with. Lots of excellent hands-on experience I could learn from. It was great to get feedback, insights and be inspired to continue on my journey of relocating.

I thought David did a good job listening to what we were looking for and either answering our questions or sending links to get my wife and I pointed in the right direction.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I work with David?

David has lived in the United States, Singapore, China, Japan, Germany, and Portugal. He has traveled to more than 60 countries, found jobs at several local companies, gotten married in a foreign country, started remote businesses, and much more!

He has overcome the challenges you’ll encounter abroad, so he’s the perfect person to guide you through it all. You can read more about his journey here.

How is coaching different from your other consulting services?

Our other consulting services are usually focused on producing a specific deliverable like a spreadsheet or presentation. After handing over that deliverable, our clients are left to do the rest on their own.

With 1-on-1 coaching sessions, you can get support when you need it from the start of your journey until after you’re settled into your new destination.

How can I tell David which topics I want to cover in the coaching sessions?

When scheduling a time for your coaching session, you will be given a link to a questionnaire where you can submit the topics that you want to discuss in that session. If you do not fill out this survey in advance of the scheduled session, then David will not do any special preparation beforehand.

Can I book a coaching session whenever I want to?

Available times for a coaching session are based on David’s schedule and availability. His normal work hours are Monday – Friday from 10 am until 7 pm WET (GMT +1), so please ensure that you will be able to connect with him during those hours prior to purchasing.

How will I connect with David for the coaching sessions?

You will receive an email with a scheduling link where you can book a time on David’s calendar. The coaching sessions will take place over Google Meet.

Do you offer package discounts?

Yes, you can buy 2-5x 30-minute sessions for 5-10% OFF and 2-5x 60-minute sessions for 10-20% OFF of the individual session prices!

I have another question.

Just let us know and we’ll be happy to answer it for you!

You don't have to do it all alone

David will be your accountability partner, guide, and mentor throughout your journey abroad!
