Living in a better place can also save/earn you a lot more money.
Most people don’t have the initiative to do this.
You no longer need the initiative. You barely need the money.
So here’s what we’re doing.
On Saturday, March 4, I will be putting out a new podcast episode on the 10-Minute Contrarian about a residency program that is stupid stupid cheap, and you don’t have to get off of your shit lazy ass to get it.
But allow me to set this up the right way. By starting from the beginning, and working our way up to where we are now.
We Are Not The Same
I have one passport, soon to be two. And I have two residence permits, soon to be three.
Who the hell does crap like this? Why would I bother obtaining any of these things?
Agility, flexibility, and an unrivaled piece of mind you get from having options.
Oh, and a lot of tax savings too.
I now have offshore businesses and bank accounts, some of which I very seldom even use, but they are there if I need it.
During the pandemic, you had people worth 10s of millions of dollars who were TRAPPED in their countries and could not move one dollar of their money out of their home domain.
And many wanted to.
But they couldn’t.
While I, with far less money than they have, had no issues moving my money or myself wherever I wanted to (vaxx issues notwithstanding).
All because I took a bit of time to set myself up for the rest of my life.
The risk/reward was stupidly asymmetrical.
So I took the necessary steps, without hesitating (this is important, you’ll see why), and now I feel like I will never be able to “get got” by a third party.
Here is the podcast episode that got it all started for some of you…
From there, I was on again with my pal JCrypto (rebranded to JSpeak so he could expand a bit), and here we go over my residences on a deeper level, my travel, and where I’m currently living. A must listen for anyone remotely interested in this.
And yes, urgency matters.
Since this video was shot, the required amount you must have in your bank account for Mexican residency has gone up.
These things start out amazing, then get more and more difficult as time goes by.
And then they go away completely.
Those who sit on their ass and invent reasons to not take action right away get fucked hard, monetarily and when it comes to access overall.
And it makes sense, countries don’t need/want everyone and their grandmas flooding into their country. Once they have a number they like (or in the case of Portugal, once real estate prices get out of control), then they shut it down.
A New Frontier
Stay with me here.
There is a new digital residency out there, it’s on a pacific island, and it’s $248
That’s it. Per year, but if you don’t feel it’s worth it over time, you can just cancel it.
You certainly don’t have to live here, but you could with this, which is also exciting to me.
Welcome to PALAU.
Everything you need to know is in this podcast episode. Separated by chapters. You can move up to the 35 minute mark to get to the nitty gritty, but the parts before that are very interesting in an attempt to give everything color.
The link, copied from the description of the above video is right here
The USD bank parts are still unclear. Everything is still a bit incomplete, but it’s moving fast, and in the right direction.
And for $248 and a 20-minute process?
Are you fucking kidding me?
If you’re priced out or location-ed out, fear not.
The world is in a tough place right now, and certain countries get hit harder than others.
This created opportunities. Opportunities you can take advantage of.
If you already know it, don’t say it out loud just yet. I will block you on Twitter.
But I just put my application in, it took 20 minutes, and I will have a third residency permit very soon.
I don’t even really need it, but that extra exit ramp may come in handy one day.
It’s a place I certainly wouldn’t mind visiting, and having greater access to that part of the world alone is worth the money spent.
Give it a strong look, and if it interests you, you know what to do.
These things go away, often overnight.
