Location: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Today we’re heading to Ho Chi Minh City Saigon Vietnam to meet Alan Vantoai, entrepreneur, developer and world traveler.

  1. Location arbitrage: significantly longer burn time to bootstrap your startup
  2. The energy: HCM is a crazy city that never fails to light your fire
  3. Networking: access to a growing community of entrepreneurs from all over the world who choose HCM as a base

Alan’s Businesses:

Covered in this episode:

  • StartupChile
  • Location & Geo Arbitrage comparisons between HCM & New York City

Don’t try to adapt the winning techniques to the system. Rather than work around the system to be prosperous, find a better system. Go where you’re treated best.

In search of the next Singapore? Andrew Henderson’s already on it. He spends his days traveling the world in search of investment and business opportunity in frontier markets. It may surprise you to learn that many of these markets aren’t in Asia but popping up in the old world of Europe – small countries like Estonia or the former states of Yugoslavia.

In this episode of Barefoot Radio, I talk to Andrew Henderson the Nomad Capitalist about his strategies for internationalizing business and life. We also cover:

  • Best low tax jurisdictions
  • How to get legal residence and not be a tax resident
  • Why zero tax jurisdictions are on the way out
  • What’s it like to live a nomadic lifestyle between countries

Brittany and Charlie – the Trading Travelers

Brittany and Charlie from the Trading Travelers started out on their location independent journey day trading their way round the world. That worked up to a point, but they soon realized that day trading wasn’t conducive to working across time zones or exploring jungles with no access to internet connections.

The pivot point occurred when they turned their attention to affiliate marketing. Slowly, but surely they built an affiliate marketing business partner with Amazon to the point now where they operate 15 affiliate websites.

In this episode of Barefoot Radio, Brittany and Charlie talk about their journey; how they nearly jacked it all in and returned home when the going got tough; and why they stuck it out now to be earning enough now to give themselves the kind of lifestyle choices they always dreamed about.

Subjects covered:

  • day trading
  • arbitrage and cost of living in Thailand
  • affiliate marketing
  • Amazon FBA
