About This Episode

Matthew Williams has worked, lived, and traveled overseas for the last 7 years. He’s now helping others have the same awesome experiences by placing them in career relevant positions in emerging economies through his business, BrainGain.

I wanted to get Matthew on the show because of his vast knowledge around working overseas. We discuss his love for travel, how to support yourself to live overseas (so you can do more than just vacation) and his new startup BrainGain.
