Andrew predicts things are going to get harder for non-U.S citizens located in many Western countries. It’s a fact that’s not being talked about a lot, but many Western countries are going broke and that tends to mean more taxation on their citizens. So if you’re not a U.S. citizen, and think you might be in the clear, you may want to think again, and work towards getting that backup plan.

[8:35] Not a U.S. citizen? High taxation won’t happen to you? You’d be surprised.

Andrew has a lot of things in the works, a couple of those being books! Also, the one thing you must check out is the Nomad Passport Index (link in the show notes) that you can download for free. Andrew was recently in Baku, Azerbaijan, and met a man who quoted Yoda, “Do or do not, there is no try.” This is a great reminder for nomads who may feel ‘stuck’ in their circumstances. Either you do it, or you don’t. The choice is yours.

[12:55] How did Nathan get started?

[14:45] Why did Nathan leave investment banking?

[30:15] What kind of investor is a good fit for equity crowdfunding?

[35:35] How do companies know whether or not they’re a good fit?

[19:00] How did Corey transition from the paradise job to entrepreneur?

[24:35] After being fired from his job in Costa Rica, Corey did not want to return to Canada.

[27:55] Costa Rica can make you lazy. You can quickly become that fat dude sitting at the beach bar.

[29:55] You have to challenge yourself by traveling elsewhere for periods of time, because Costa Rica moves slow.

[30:55] Corey is currently in Canada right now and he recently went out and bought two winter jackets — something he hasn’t done in 10 years.

[36:00] Why did Corey decide to create Podfly?

[40:55] Corey talks about applying for Costa Rican residency.

Lots of crazy things happening with President Trump. As people looking for alternative options, Andrew cautions that you never want to try and hide your money from the government.

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.

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.
