Hemispheres Special Conference Issue
by Susan Rensberger
While the palm trees in Belize are still waving good-by, our guests from the just-completed Hemispheres conference, A HIRE ACT Update, are home unpacking their bags.
And, I'm sure, still thinking about the new information, business contacts, and friendships gained in just a few days on the beach in tropical Ambergris Caye.
Maybe you weren't part of that select group, but the good news is, next time you can be.
The Hemispheres HIRE ACT Update and asset protection conference in Ambergris Caye, Belize has just come to a close. There were numerous discussions on new ideas of how people can protect what they’ve worked so very hard for. Everyone who gathered for the conference shared this one common goal and each of the speakers addressed the issue in different ways.
On the morning of Wednesday, August 3, 2011, our first speaker addressed a major issue on everyone’s mind, banking. Many attendees are disturbed by the possibility of the United States falling into another recession and bank failures. Peter Zipper, President of Caye International Bank, Ltd. in Belize, addressed this issue by talking about the benefits of offshore banking and having multiple baskets for your nest eggs.
Email is Not Magic: What You Need to Know

If you are a Hemispheres reader, we know you use email every day. In fact, you probably send more email daily than any other form of communication; at least for important and business-relevant communication. While some of this correspondence is likely casual, some has consequence.
Ask yourself the simple questions...

Home Prices Are Just the Beginning
by Michael Cobb
Being the head of a real estate development business in Latin America, I hear quite a few comments about the price of real estate abroad. People frequently say to me, “I can buy a condo in Florida for less than what you are selling them for.” And they are right. The simple truth is that it is possible to buy a condo in Miami Beach for as little as $80 per sq.ft. One such offer I located is a condo built in 1948 located at 1275 Marseille Dr. just about a mile from the beach.
