How my friend took the simplest path to foreign residency
How my friend took the simplest path to foreign residency by Simon Black – Sovereign Man
I could get used to this.
As I told you yesterday, I spend part of the summer each year at a centuries-old villa in a storied pocket of Italy. And I invite some of the most brilliant and productive people on the planet, most of whom I’ve met traveling the world over the last decade.
Italy has a way of making people expansive – past the handmade pasta we eat every night. Looking over the rolling Umbrian hills, we chat over Chianina beef, local wine, and fresh fruit each night — exchanging ideas and inspiring new ones.
So we were happy when our friend Ryan joined us on Monday.
Ryan is another brilliant and creative redhead, like the Zac the Mad Scientist I told you about yesterday. Ryan is a digital marketing guru, serving clients all over the world.
He’s less manic than Zac… so far, no psychedelic sexual lubricants in his product arsenal… but every bit as shrewd.
Ryan, like most successful people I know, is a master at creating opportunities for himself.
Champions don’t wait around for things to be handed to them.
They take action…
They use their brains to figure out what’s right in front of them, turn it into an asset or opportunity, and move forward.
And that’s exactly how Ryan, at a young age, grabbed some low-hanging fruit and turned it into permanent foreign residency.
He’s not even 40, and he’s working toward a full, foreign citizenship.
Why is this important? Because permanent residency somewhere abroad – wherein you can come and go as you please in another nation, no questions asked – and/or second citizenship elsewhere – where you can take full advantage of the rights offered to every other citizen in that country, as can your kids – are essential components of a robust Plan B.
A Plan B, as longtime readers know, is the ultimate insurance policy.
No matter what happens in your home government, instead of being “triggered” and cowering hysterically in a corner, you can simply get on a plane – or, in Ryan’s case, a car – and go.
