IMU 008: How Colin, a US Immigrant Living in Colombia, Uses Dollar Arbitrage To Become Financially Free!

In today’s episode 8, I decided to interview an immigrant who is from United States.  How is that possible you ask?  Well, this particular immigrant is now living in Colombia.  So, why is it important for you to listen to him?

Well, Colin Andrews Egbert, who is originally from Ohio, now lives in Medellín, Colombia.  Colin is a serial entrepreneur and professional speaker who has started and/or has been a key member with multiple 6 and 7 figure businesses.

Starting out right after graduating college at The Ohio State University, Colin first threw himself in the real estate investing market in Columbus, Ohio. With horrible credit, maxed out credit cards and only 3 grand to his name, Colin took the plunge with his first real estate marketing campaign.

Within 60 days, as a total novice, Colin completed 4 real estate deals for over $33,000 in profit. From there, very quickly, Colin became one of the most active real estate investors in the area and closed dozens of deals.

With a passion for investing and also seeing the growth of Myspace and Facebook, Colin Co Founded the first online community for real estate investors,  The community grew to over 60 thousand members and later, Colin co authored Real Estate Web Riches, one of the first courses that taught real estate investors around the country how to use the Internet to make more money in their investing business.

Colin shared this knowledge all over North America at seminars and via webinars. He has shared the stage with real estate and business greats such as Ron LeGrand, Robert Kiyosaki, and Michael Gerber.

After the venture, Colin set his sights South and traveled through South America for nearly a year, living the vagabond lifestyle and practing his Spanish and salsa skills.

He returned back to the States and soon joined one of his best friends to build, a new product and app development business. was recently named one of INC Magazine’s Fast 5000 fastest growing businesses with revenue growth over 1800% over a 2 year period.

Growing from 3 to 26 full time team members during this 2 year time period, is quickly becoming a force in the industry.  Colin’s expertise is focused on setting up and growing highly successful sales teams and he currently enjoys living aboard in Medellin, Colombia. He loves the ability to work anywhere in the world and has been to over 20 countries.

In his free time, Colin loves to hit the gym, read a good book, or bust out some moves on the dance floor.
