Have you ever rolled over, hit the snooze button, and wanted to blow off work—forever? Nadine Hays Pisani did just that and quickly found herself fording crocodile infested rivers and bribing border police. It wasn't what she expected but even while jumping out of bed and tossing stinging scorpions into the air, it was still better than a day at the office.

It turned out becoming a Central American diva was harder than it looked. However, changing one’s life is never easy and she refused to give up on her dream that happiness existed somewhere outside a 9 to 5 job.

Happier Than A Billionaire, published July 3, 2011, was profiled on CNN.com and has recently been reviewed in the March edition of the Howler Magazine. Nadine Pisani has been quoted in Fodor’s Costa Rica 2012 Travel Guide, interviewed by Natalie Sisson, the Suitcase Entrepreneur, and featured on Savannah Buffett’s show Expats.

Happier Than A Billionaire is currently number one on Amazon in two categories: Costa Rica and Central America, and competes with Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer daily for the first or second position in Travel & Adventure.  She has since published her second book, Happier Than A Billionaire: The Sequel.

The author is a writer for the following websites: We Love Costa Rica, Escape Artist, and the Costa Rica Star.  She has a popular blog where she shares her adventures as well as maintaining a large presence on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Tumblr. 

Nadine Hays Pisani lives in Costa Rica where you can find her riding on the back of a scooter, exploring deserted beaches, or trying to woo a family of monkeys over to her side of the street..
