Nomad Capitalist Live

Welcome. I’m Andrew Henderson – perpetual traveler, international entrepreneur, and citizen of the world. Each week, I share tips and insights gleaned from my world travels on how you can find more freedom, grow and protect your assets, and live a radical life on your own terms. I help you achieve your own freedom with my daily field reports, weekly syndicated radio shows, helpful products, and live events. Every year, I travel to about one dozen new countries (sometimes many more) in search of personal and economic freedom. My mission is simple: find the best places to live, start a business, and invest. I’m always on the go and exploring new places. No one place has a monopoly on freedom, opportunity, or happiness, and I make the world my oyster in search of the perfect balance. While on the go, I take the time to really understand what’s going on on the ground in each country in order to find the best places in the world to live, work, bank, invest, start a business, date, raise a family, and enjoy life. I value personal freedom above all else in life. Freedom to live how I want, free from bosses and their 9-to-5 work days and from greedy politicians that want to control me and steal my money.
