Greetings and welcome to The Sovereign Millennial – the site dedicated to helping Millennials understand how to become financially sound, take advantage of the opportunities available today globally, and live the location-independent life that you want.
“Sovereign” = “belonging to or characteristic of a sovereign or sovereign authority; royal.” a.k.a. having control.
I am a Millennial and I made this site for fellow Millennials like you, to share my experiences on personal finance and leveraging geoarbitrage for your benefit to live a global lifestyle.
I, like many of you, also started my journey as a simple corporate slave who dreamt of living the “digital nomad” lifestyle. Once I took the plunge and did it, I realized that only a small portion of digital nomads were actually living the dream, whereas the majority of digital nomads I met (especially in Asia) were people who were just barely getting by financially – living on cheap food and hostel dorms even well into their 30’s. Not only were these “digital brokemads” not living the dream, many of them knew very well that they were just delaying the inevitable of eventually returning to their home countries one day to face the next stage of their lives with no certainty and no gameplan.
Our goal is to live life with choice, with comfort, without having to go to every meal with friends and be a cheapskate that counts pennies. We must take control of our own personal finances to set ourselves up for a comfortable future.
