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.

If you're looking for great overseas real estate investments that are the equivalent to what you'd get in the United States, then turn back now, it just doesn't exist. You're not going to get great financing deals in a foreign country. People in the United States often scoff at the idea of paying for big ticket items, like a car, in cash, much less a house! However, paying for a home upfront and in cash is a widely accepted way of doing things when purchasing property overseas and this is one of the reasons why you will get horrible finance rates in these countries.

 

Key Takeaways:

Andrew's Editorial:

[1:40] How do you know when to invest vs. when to stay put?

[3:20] You have to be realistic with your investments.

[5:25] 90% financing just doesn't exist.

[8:20] Why do you want a first world investment if you're leaving the first world in the first place?

[12:20] Andrew knows someone who sold a car for $20,000 in the US and the bank looked at him as if he was a terrorist.

[13:40] The US has the most advance markets for Airbnb.

[14:30] Andrew would rather take a cash yield than have to finance a property.

[16:55] Remember, you could potentially be investing in a bubble market if you invest in US property.

[17:15] Andrew doesn't believe real estate always goes up in value and doesn't trust people who believe this.

[18:45] If you're looking for safety then being overseas is more important.

[19:35] You're not going to go overseas and get financing. It just doesn't work that way.

 

Interview:

[23:15] Why did Kevin become an entrepreneur?

[26:35] Why did Kevin start his business overseas?

[32:55] If you go anywhere else in the world and own a car, you're considered rich. Often times, you don't even need a car because everything is within walking distance or the public transport is fantastic.

[36:15] What kind of flags has Kevin planted around the world?

[37:15] Kevin talks about outsourcing some of his work to places like the Philippines.

[38:35] What has Kevin's experience been like in Singapore?

[40:30] Kevin doesn't believe he could achieve this level of success back in his home country.
