EPoP 031: 17 Years an Expat with John Bardos


Many of you dream of being location independent or living abroad for an extended period of time.

Of engaging in a place and culture, rather than just traveling through it.

And no one is a bigger expert in this field than John Bardos of JetSetCitizen, who has started, run, and sold his own business in another country, has launched a successful location independent lifestyle, and has lived abroad for the last 17 years.

Today, John discusses the actual costs of living abroad, tells us some of his favorite home bases, and helps dispel some of the rumors surrounding a location independent lifestyle.

He also gives his best tips and advice for how someone who wishes to pursue living abroad can get started and what they can do to set themselves up while still at home.

There are 17 years of wisdom packed into this podcast, and you won’t want to miss it!
