Ep #75: Location Independent and Working with Expats – The Career of Hui-chin Chen

November 23, 2016


This week, we're excited to welcome Hui-chin Chen, a Certified Financial Planner and co-owner of Pavlov Financial Planning, a fee-only firm based in Washington D.C. This Taiwanese native received an undergraduate degree in business before relocating to the United States to pursue her master's degree at Carnegie Mellon.

Specializing in financial planning for digital nomads, Hui-chin has created a location independent practice that caters to expats with assets in both Taiwan and the United States. As a digital nomad herself, she's been able to build her practice while relocating between various countries with her husband - a professional in the Foreign Service.

Hui-chin's experience will shed new light on a world of possibilities for financial planners with a sense of adventure. She lays out the benefits and challenges of operating as an advisor in a global environment. After learning about Hui-chin's location independent lifestyle, you may never look at financial planning the same way again.
