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.

Andrew continues the Nomad Capitalist’s theme of finding and discovering your ‘home,’ in this week’s introduction. He says if you’re stuck in the same routine every day, you’re never going to get your own questions answered about whether the nomad lifestyle is for you. By doing, by exploring, and by seeing, you’ll find out where home truly feels for you.

In Andrew’s introduction, he discusses the true meaning of a nomad. A nomad is someone who goes where they're treated best, but this does not mean that they leave their tax woes behind them. Governments are becoming more and more connected, and are going after nomads who did not get all their tax ducks in a row. Be careful and do things the right, and legal, way!

 

Key Takeaways:

Andrew's Editorial:

[2:00] Andrew met a guy from Sweden who was paying 58% tax.

[2:40] Some nomads didn't think about their taxes when they went overseas, and now the government is going after them.

[3:40] Nomads should constantly be seeking where they're treated best.

[5:35] Get your tax ducks in a row.

[22:20] Aaron talks about his business, RoomChecking.

[28:15] Why did Aaron move to Paris?

[31:15] Was it difficult for Aaron to convince his girlfriend to move to Paris with him?

[41:00] Aaron compares American cultures vs. French culture.

[49:20] The French (Europeans in general) seem to love, love paperwork.

[52:00] The EU has high tax just like the U.S., but at the very least the U.S. makes it easy to pay that tax.

There are a lot of coaches out there that claim they’re making 6-figures, but those numbers can lie. In this week’s introduction, Andrew warns others to be bit wary of those ‘gurus’ out there, claiming quick financial success. Anybody can be a coach, so it’s important to find one who is A) a good teacher, and B) someone who will empower you to take action.

 

Key Takeaways:

Andrew's Editorial:

[2:25] There are a lot of fakes out there.

[11:45] Have a mini nest egg, and then jump into it! She wished she had left her corporate job sooner.

[12:40] How did Jenna save money? She downsized.

[15:30] Jenna wished she had done her own research about Europe as opposed to listening to everyone else tell her how expensive Europe was (it wasn’t).

[19:15] Time is our most valuable asset. Your mental state and your time cannot be replaced.

[21:45] What are some of the benefits of being a solopreneur?

[26:45] The more things you own, the more you’re owned by things.

[27:00] What countries in Europe does Jenna suggest nomads should go to, or check out?
