One of the things that Dan and Ian discuss pretty frequently on this show are the places in the world that location independent people tend to gravitate toward.

In this community a lot of people move around for lifestyle and social reasons, but traditionally business owners have gravitated towards places that are offer low tax situations, or otherwise business friendly environments.

On today’s show, two of our listeners are going to share their experiences of living in two of these countries: Panama and Andorra.

Jase Rodley is a digital marketer for boutique hotels who visited Andorra with his wife Jess about 18 months ago and fell in love with it.

Matt Landau owns his own boutique hotel in Panama, and he used his experience in that industry to create his own online business targeted towards vacation rental owners.

You’ll hear them share their stories about why they chose to live where they do, and what makes these places appealing to entrepreneurs who can choose where they settle.


Listen to this week’s show and learn:

  • How Jase’s journey to Andorra started at a North American ski resort. (6:20)
  • What made Andorra so attractive to them. (13:23)
  • How difficult it is to become an Andorran resident. (19:30)
  • How Matt started an online business after he bought a boutique hotel in Panama. (27:44)
  • What the entrepreneurial community in Panama looks like now. (38:03)

  • I love these episodes where you introduce us to new entrepreneurs, not the ones in every podcast out there all the time.

  • thanks Cristina glad you dig it. I really enjoy hearing all the unique stories and the ways people find their unique path.

    Great to hear there are other mountain bikers out there choosing locations for the trails. :) Whistler, Rotorua, Queenstown and Morzine. Will have to check out Andorra.

  • From the looks of things you won’t be disappointed!

  • Whistler is a hard place to leave for a mountain biker. The park is amazing but the trails around the Sea to Sky are all time. Andorra can’t compete, but it beats Whistler in other ways. Get in touch if you happen to ride here some time!
