Welcome to Nomad Capitalist, my name is Andrew Henderson, and over the last ten years I visited nearly 100 countries, in search of The three things that define what I call the Nomad Capitalist lifestyle. I was going out, I left the United States, and I wanted to find where in the world I would be treated best. I spent a lot of time in the United States, running businesses, paying a lot of taxes, and never feeling like I had the life that I want. I wanted more freedom. I wanted to see the world. I wanted to keep more of my own money, and that’s where Nomad Capitalist is born. In this quick video, I’m gonna explain not only what I’ve done, and what I do now, but a few of the things that I’ve learned along the way that you can start applying as you’re learning this stuff for yourself. So, for me my journey began, as I said, ten years ago, and really I went about doing things all the wrong way. I spent a lot of time researching, I was looking in all the wrong places, I was talking to people who didn’t have the answers, And I wasn’t really hands-on, and I wasn’t totally committed to the results that I wanted. But what I learned was that there are three things that Nomad Capitalist lifestyle can give you – The six- and seven-figure entrepreneur who wants to be more free, and who wants to have more money. Number 1 – how to keep more of your own money by paying lower taxes, legally setting up bank accounts and companies, and incorporating, and doing business in a way that legally allows you to keep more of your own money, whether that’s tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of dollars. And we’ve seen people do that time and time again. Step number 2 Create a freedom lifestyle, build insurance policies around your life. Give yourself not only the freedom to live wherever you want – whether that’s traveling to dozens of countries every year, whether that’s living in Bangkok, or London, or Hong Kong, or Bogota, or somewhere in between. But also doing things like having second residences, second passports, to make sure that your taxes stay low, to make sure that you have options no matter what happens. The third thing is to grow your wealth faster. So if you’re someone who is paying tens, or hundreds, or millions of dollars in taxes – imagine having that money to put back into your business, and imagine how much faster your business could grow, or imagine being able to put that into your real estate portfolio… What do you do with that money? And then imagine that you don’t put that money into your real estate portfolio where you’re from, where it makes a couple percent, but you go and put it somewhere in an emerging market where you can reliably make 15 or even 20%. through the same kind of relatively boring investments. So those are the three things that I help people accomplish. And I’ll tell you, I’m not a lawyer, I’m not an accountant. I don’t have any fancy degrees. I don’t have a fancy office. I spend my time traveling the world, and building a network of people that I’ve accumulated over the last 10 years, who know how to get stuff done. And I think what I’ve learned is important, is that you have to start with the end in mind. People start out wanting to go offshore, and they say let me get a Belize company. Then they find out that their Belize company has trouble getting a bank account. And then their bank account has trouble getting a merchant account, And then they never really get the results they want, because they can’t get their business set up offshore the right way. Or they say, I’m gonna go get a passport over here, Not realizing that over here, there are actually a lot more easier options that they could go for but they went in it the wrong way. So what I found is – Start with the end in mind. If it’s good enough for the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, It’s good enough for me, and for our Nomad Capitalist community. Start with the end in mind. What people really want, and probably why you’re here is – I want to pay less in taxes because I believe I can do more with that money. Not only to reinvest it in myself, but to reinvest it in the people, and the causes that I care about. You want freedom, you want to know that no one government controls you, that you hold the cards, that you have options. And then you want to go, and you want to make more money to create generational wealth, what you’ll find is that when your tax rates a lot lower, you can do that a lot faster, even without higher returns. Those are the things that are really important, and starting with the end in mind is important. The other thing that I’ve really learned over the years is that, when I started, I was the young guy who was doing very well in business, and you have a bit of that mindset where you think you’re an action taker, you think you’re mature, you think you know everything, because you’ve succeeded in one area… What I really had to find was I had to be humbled, I had to realize that when I went to a tax lawyer who could help me save a bunch of money in taxes, and I shouted hat him, and wouldn’t hire him, and wouldn’t pay him because, you know, his fee was too high, even though it was a tiny fraction of the taxes I was gonna save. I had to go through that, I had to live through not hiring that guy, and suffering the consequences, and going out, and paying a lot more money in tax than I would have by just hiring him, and realizing – Well, maybe I don’t have all the answers. I’ve had to be, over the last 10 years, humbled, to realizing that There are people all around the world who know how to get second passports, who know how to lower their taxes, and by doing that, I’ve accomplished so much more. I lowered my tax rate from 43% to 1%. I obtained multiple second passports and many more second residence permits around the world, I gave up one passport, and I’ve made investments, and bought properties all around the world. I’ve stored precious metals in vaults, invested in companies in other countries, and really, just built a lifestyle that simplifies what I’m doing. Built a lifestyle that’s more enjoyable by not having to be paying for 43% of my income. Suddenly, it’s like – You know what? Maybe I deserve to stay in a nicer hotel when I’m traveling. Or maybe I deserve a little bit nicer car, or maybe I want to take care of the people around me a little bit better because I feel more abundant with my money. In order to get to that point, what I’ve learned is, you have to be an action taker. Not just someone who says they take action and goes back to researching, and reading, and talking to 18 different people, and doing the wrong stuff. You have to be an action taker, you have to start with the end of mind, and you have to be humble to really understand that. It’s taking me 10 years to really figure this stuff out now. Here’s the good news – you don’t have to spend ten years to get where I’ve gotten. I had a lot of stumbling and figuring stuff out, and you open the bank account that didn’t work, and then you had to come back and fix stuff… I did a lot of that because I figured out all on my own, and spent a lot of money to do that. It won’t take you ten years to get where I’ve gotten, but the more you do this stuff, the more that you learn And that’s why I’m proud that I’m not an accountant, not a lawyer, I don’t have the fancy degree… I work with those guys, and I’ve learned how to speak their language to adapt their results But really, they’re just one piece of the puzzle, and so, if you’re just thinking that just setting up some offshore company is gonna solve your problem, that’s not really what you need. You need a 360-degree solution that figures out tax in all the countries that are relevant, banking, corporations, merchant accounts, residence permits… There’s a lot that goes on, and what I’ve learned over the years is those are the things that are important. How do you put the puzzle pieces together? How do you then take the action that’s needed in an abundant way? And once you do that, once you get on the other side of the Nomad capitalist gauntlet, once you’re here living the life the way that I have been for years, you feel so much more abundant, you feel so much more free, and that’s when you start to just realize, you probably have too much stuff going on in your life right now. And we can cut a lot of that stuff out to keep things really simple and lightweight. Those are some of the things that I’ve learned in 10 years of doing this. I don’t believe in theory, I never have, as an entrepreneur from age 19. I never really wanted to read about it. I wanted to do it. I wanted to get my hands dirty, and there have been some mistakes that I’ve made, there have been some things that have cost me some money, and I’ve learned what not to do, and that’s pretty important too. But what I’ve really learned is these key mindset principles that you have to go in with the right approach. And if you do that, then you’re unstoppable. So, welcome to Nomad Capitalist!
