I'm Diane Huth, the Runaway Sherpa, and I want to help you run away from home and escape to paradise to live the life you've always dreamed of.
Today, more than ever, you can reinvent your life and live and work where and how you want to.
No longer is a sunshine-filled life of joy limited to the last few years of your life when you finally retire after half a century of work.
Today, resourceful people of all ages and financial situations are leaving behind the loneliness of lockdowns, the rut of dead end jobs, lost hours of commuting, or living a life of quiet desperation. Instead they are living like royalty on a shoestring budget, and loving every minute of it.
And this book will teach you how you can do it as well - and faster and easier than you ever imagined possible.
It will take the guess work and fear out of the idea of moving abroad to be able to claim a better life that you've only just dreamed about in the past.
This is a step-by-step guide that will detail everything you need to know so you can define your dream life, find where it is located, make sure it meets your lifestyle criteria, and then empowers you to take the steps to test the waters to see if it is right for you.
Plus you will learn how to make a living while living the life of your dreams. I will show you 5 different ways you can earn dollars and spend pesos while living overseas, and introduce you to many of my friends who creatively live and earn in paradise.
Only then can you make informed decisions that give you the confidence to transform your life for the better.
And throughout this book, I will provide access to dozens of resources, worksheets, budget calculators, cheat sheets, and many more bonuses to serve as priceless planning tools to help guide you on the path of living your dreams today - not decades from now.
I look forward to guiding you on your journey of reinvention as you run away from home and discover a life of joy and freedom in paradise - where ever you choose to find it.
Jackie says the information in this book transformed her life!
I was trapped with no way out living in San Antonio. I couldn't work because of a chronic illness, and I couldn't afford to live on my disability benefits. I was physically assaulted while moving into a low-cost HUD apartment which was all I could afford at the time. I couldn't live there, and I couldn't afford to rent in a safer, more upscale community. When I discovered the wonderful lifestyle that Diane lived and shared with me, I finally found a way I could live the quality of life I yearned for, within my modest budget. It has transformed my life forever! And I feel safer in Mexico as a single woman than I ever did back in Texas!

I have finally found my roadmap to freedom, thanks to the amazing insights in this book.
Sara was amazed to learn how to affordably live the best of both worlds!
Diane taught me how safe, joy filled and simple life in paradise can actually be. I had never considered that I could spend half the year in Idaho, and enjoy all the great summer activities and events, and nurture my garden, and still spend half the year in paradise. And I can do it for less money than I would spend on a two-week vacation at a fancy resort nearby. My husband Michael and I are planning our first winter in the tropics, ready to get out of snow and into the sunshine in the cold winter months. And we can do it for less than we were looking to pay for annual service fees for a time share in a resort nearby less than 40 miles away! We can enjoy the best of both worlds with the strategies that Diane teaches in her book.
