The Effect of the Corona Virus on Digital Nomads

The Effect of the Corona Virus on Digital Nomads
Dear lock-downed Freebird,

I hope you’re doing fine in these strange times…

The last weeks I, just like you, have been wondering how the corona crisis will effect the digital nomad lifestyle.

At least for now, the life of flying everywhere and doing what you want is severely disrupted.

Today […]

Why Apply Flag Theory?

Most people never move from the place they were born.

They go to school, follow the norms, choose from the available careers, and pursue a “stable” path. Molding their life into conventional and predictable patterns, remaining among old friends and family who remind them of their limitations and their place.

They accept these are the cards […]

The Rebel Mindset

One thing that happens a lot is the following:

During a call I tell someone what to do to not pay taxes. They immediately start looking for ways to do the opposite.

You want an example?

I tell someone that in their case they need to immigrate in order to stop paying taxes in their home country.  […]

7 Things To Understand About Offshore Agents

I recently started working for a Cyprus based offshore agent.

I am helping them with marketing offshore companies online. And when I did my research, I spotted something.

In Google Advertising I saw who ranked at the nr. 1 position. One of our competitors.

Their ad claimed: Cyprus – Anonymous and Confidential.

Someone had been researching his tax situation.

He figured out that he could get out of dodge by directing his salary to a “secure” private bank account. He then would wire it to his personal account back home, pretending that these were just savings.

I told him that he […]

How To Stay 100% Legal

People often tell me this:

Whatever we do, “it has to be 100% legal.”

In the same email they often express a fear of “skirting the law.”


I assume a number of things when people mention this:

They are afraid of the government. I think most of us are in some way.
Pretty remarkable when you realize we […]

Who Is Speaking The Truth?

I was talking to a client last week from Argentina.

In a nutshell: he wants out.

Taxes and regulations are insane.

Decades of Socialism have made it very difficult to do business.

He even has to bribe local government employees to prevent them coming in and “finding something.”

Like so many Argentinians, he already has a second home in […]

Reddit Racist

“Wow, what an entitled, racist, and pathetic human being you are.”


This is what someone wrote on Reddit as a response to a blog-post I wrote about my life as a digital nomad in Chiang Mai.


I am not sure why I am all of that.

I would bet serious money that if they lined up all […]

Living In Chiang Mai As A Digital (Tax) Nomad


The capital of remote workers. The empire of digital nomad-ism.
After spending some time here in 2008, it was no surprise I would end up here at one point.

Life in Chiang Mai as a digital nomad is easy going.


I wake up every morning whenever I feel like it. No alarm bells for me. It is about 11 […]

I Give Away This Ebook Because I Couldn’t Sell It

Let me tell you about my biggest failure ever.

Sure, you can laugh. But this has been so embarrassing for me that I never dared to talk about it for a long time.

I literally told this to only one or two people before writing this email.


Where is this about?

A long time ago, in 1873, I […]
