In this workshop, expat teachers will learn not only how to fulfil their financial goals while working abroad, but understand why it is vital to be financially well. In order to do this, they must determine their financial goals and their timeframe. Then they must make a specific and realistic plan, which includes a budget, to start saving as much as possible each month. I will go through my own top 5 techniques that have motivated me to boost my own savings. Finally, I can talk about factors to consider when financially planning for retirement.
