The Get Up & Get Out Podcast w/ Steve Krisel

Episode 25: Joe Bautista - An investment advisor from the USA, now living in Colombia, South America

August 24, 2020

Episode 25: Joe Bautista talks about family life, his parents almost going broke,  military life, free college, working at the Pentagon, becoming a registered investment advisor and now helping other Latinos learn the tips and tools to successfully handling their finances and taking control of their future.

"Coaching Latino Professionals to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually so they can have better careers, better relationships, and personal finances."

In our talk, Joe describes his experience growing up in Oregon in a middle-income family. Both parents worked extremely hard for the life they wanted in America. 

Joe went off and joined the Marines and over the years, his G.I. Bill offered him the opportunity to graduate with not one but two degrees. 

On his journey, Joe found a nice paying, comfortable job working at the Pentagon...but, that just wasn't him. Beauracracy, routine, following rules, orders, and a regime he was all too familiar within the military, Joe wanted more!

He saw his fellow Latino community struggling with finances and building wealth for years to come. He found is calling!

Joe decided to dedicate his time and his life to applying the skills he had gained along with a long desire to fluently speak Spanish, he set off for Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama and as of this moment, he now resides in Medellín, Colombia - the land of "Eternal Spring". Did you know that Medellín is almost 5000 feet above sea-level...yeah, neither did I. I guess that allows for the 'eternal spring'!

Joe explains to us why he left, what he's been up to and what his future goals are. 

We hope you enjoy the episode and feel free to follow Joe or reach out to him - I'm sure he'll be more than happy to give you some tips, advice, or even jump on a call with you!
