Even though Bahamas is considered a tax haven with low corporate taxes, it’s ranked very low in terms of ease of doing business. This encapsulates a great example of the need to be making financial decisions on much more than finances and emotions. A paradise location for celebrations mixed with logistical challenges and hurricane season four months a year. Expansive Planning is essential. 5


Studies show that vacations make people happier and add more quality of life, whether it’s for pleasure or humanitarianism. When going through a personal budget, the average family of four vacation costs appx. $4600 and an individual humanitarian trip $1500. 6
