MY STORY…How the Local Gringo came to be?

My name is Terry Beck.  I am a Canadian who spent 25 years in the corporate world; specifically consumer packaged goods leadership, sales, and marketing.  In our late 40s, my entrepreneurial wife (Selina) and I decided to jump off the treadmill and embark upon a daring adventure with our 2.5 year old Miniature Schnauzer, Axel.  Our travels led us to Belize… specifically San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye.  We had vacationed on ‘the Island’ prior but decided to spent the winter there and become ‘local gringos’.  Well, BOOM! … Our lives have changed forever.  I started writing a novel called ‘Axel’s Daring Adventure’ (documenting our travels through his eyes), writing tons of travel reviews, and networking with the Belizeans, local gringos, and travelers to Belize.  Wow… did I learn a ton… and now I am consulting, a partner in a lucrative direct marketing distributorship, writing, blogging, on the beach and at our summer resort home, and living my life NOW!  My passion is passing on information that I have gathered about being a ‘local gringo’ in the Caribbean.  Thus, WELCOME TO  Enjoy the site… Ask Questions?… Here to HELP?
