Get personal advice on Uruguay living and travel – Now at Plansify!

We at Uruguay Expat Life & Uruguay For Me enjoy sharing our experiences, creating internet communities where other folks considering life in Uruguay gather to chat, and meeting and conversing with other expats, immigrants, slow travelers, who may be wondering if Uruguay is for them. That’s why we created and offer so many different free options for online community, like all the ones in our menu up top. Including the very popular Uruguay Expat Life Community on the Google social platform. We will continue to curate and encourage these communities, post our own observations here at the heart of our site network and on our social media sites, and encourage everyone to contribute. Lisa Mercer and I also get a lot of emails, private messages, and contact form responses, and we’re happy to give some quick info.

Sometimes what you need is more than just public social media and blog discussions, more than a short general reply to an email. When it comes to asking “Is Uruguay for me?”, that requires research, perspective, advice, and on-the-ground knowledge. Same with figuring out all the various travel alternatives and ways to maximize frequent flyer programs and schemes to afford the multiple trips you really should do before committing to live here. Now we have a way to help you with those details, via Plansify.

Montevideo and Uruguay – Growing Technology Hub.

Uruguay is the place to be for tech opportunity. As is “Technolatina” South America in general. Startup or established, large or small business.

Yesterday on our social networks, I shared a new article from new-business, entrepreneur-targeted Fast Company, which noted that Montevideo, Uruguay is becoming a Technology Hub. My link goes directly to my comments on their report, where I explain that in many ways, it’s not just “becoming”, it already is. I give solid reasons and examples why, including how I was “discovered” by a major cloud software / services company, NetSuite, by virtue of moving to Uruguay, and got a job as a technical writer here in Montevideo – by virtue of having “changed the rules of the game” for my career, because I moved out of a growth-challenged society (USA) into a growing, business-friendly one (Uruguay).

Same Mark Mercer, same skills. Career prematurely executed in USA, in demand in Uruguay.  Read the link for the details of why Uruguay is right for business, Continue reading Tech Startup Movement in South America
