At this membership level, you'll get special access to a monthly Zoom Happy Hour with Amelia And JP and several other Unconventionals. You'll be able to ask us anything via video, audio or the chat window, and we'll respond in-real-time via live video. It's a group video call and it's incredible!

We also invite special guests, like visa agents, relocation experts, business owners, volunteers, seasoned expats, etc. so you can "ask the experts" and forge connections to make your expat adventure less stressful and mysterious.

And if you can't make the live event, you'll have access to the REPLAY so you don't miss anything!

You can ask questions, make suggestions, comment on videos, tell us about your unconventional life and we can talk to you right then in real-time!

• Access to the monthly Zoom Happy Hour REPLAY videos starting with the October 2020 happy hour. This is a nice option if you can't attend the live event. 

• It's a great way to meet other Unconventionals and make new friends!

About Amelia And JP

Your Unconventional Life Awaits!

Hola Unconventionals!

We’re Amelia And JP. We sold everything we owned and moved to Ecuador with our two dogs to live Our Unconventional Life abroad. Now, we inspire and guide others who want to escape the hamster wheel, retire early, retire abroad or just want to have a higher quality of life at a lower cost of living.



Each week, we post new videos and articles showing you what life is like for two American expats living abroad and working online in our small South American country.

Join us for information, answers and guidance to help take the mystery out of your move!

What You Get As A Member

First and foremost, your membership helps us continue recording and publishing videos about expat life in Ecuador. A lot of people think YouTubers get rich off of the ads, but it's a big myth! Most months, we don't earn enough from ads to cover our operating costs (software licenses, video editing, hosting, cloud storage, etc.).

Since this is my full time job and Amelia's part time job, we actually need to do more than cover our costs; we need to earn a living. And thanks to our patron members, we do!

We're not looking for a free ride, though! We provide a LOT of extra value for your membership!

Once you become a member in our private community of current and future expats, you’ll gain immediate access to even more information-rich content like a monthly Question & Answer video, extra special edition videos, Live Chat Hangouts and Zoom Happy Hours. Plus, you'll be able to get YOUR questions answered in our next Q&A video.

We also have a VERY active private chat community with lots of members who already moved to Ecuador and they’re happy to pay it forward by sharing their experiences with you, answering your questions, and providing words of encouragement on those days when you’re questioning everything.

"I am not in Ecuador, yet, and have lots of questions. I joined the Patreon group and I get answers to my questions not only from JP but also from the group members. It’s a wonderful group to be part of 😊." ~Jeff Hoyle, Member

There are NO long-term commitments. You can upgrade, downgrade or cancel at any time. And you’ll get immediate access to our past member-only videos and posts right after you sign up!



As a member, you'll also have our guarantee to respond to every single comment and question in a timely manner.

We spend a LOT of time responding to emails, direct messages and comments on our YouTube channels, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Reddit and our two websites. And we LOVE hearing from you so please don't stop!

But as our audience has grown, as well as the volume of messages, we simply don't have time to respond to every public comment and email like we used to.

As a member, your comments and questions get top priority!

What If You Want to Contribute Without Signing Up for Patreon?

We get it. Maybe you enjoy our videos and want to support our creation of them, but you don't want to sign up for Patreon. We've got you covered. You can make individual donations via PayPal through our website Support Page.

Thank You!

Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of our Band of Unconventionals. We'll keep doing our best to deliver high quality, inspirational, informational, educational and smile-inducing videos for you. ¡Muchas gracias y buena suerte!
