Planting A Flag In Bulgaria And Finding Freedom

in #life2 years ago (edited)

Here is a clip from a speech I gave during the 2018 Elevation Tour in Portugal and Spain in which I discuss how moving from the U.S. to Bulgaria unexpectedly opened up a world of opportunity and allowed me to enjoy more freedom by internationalizing my life.

"Planting a flag" is a reference to Flag Theory, the idea that setting up different aspects of your life, i.e. citizenship, residence, business, banking and leisure, in different countries, or jurisdictions, allows you to maximize the amount of freedom you enjoy. In this clip, I explain how I not only attained more economic freedom, but also more social freedom, by moving abroad.


I get the social freedom point you are making. It's not like I came to Bulgaria and became a different person, it's more like there was no pressure (real or imagined) to act any particular way. That is very freeing, indeed!

P.S. Your post is my very first one that I got to use my new slider to vote! You got the whole whopping 3 cents. :D How exciting!!! Thanks, @brentssanders, for making that happen!

Agreed. Welcome back :) Maybe you can educate me on what this new slider is...

I'm sure you have it...the slider that allows you to give a percentage of an upvote.

Thank you, btw!

That's new? I've been using it for some time.

It's new for me. I got a special delegation of Steem Power to get me to that swanky level.

My pleasure, Sam.

Glad to hear our land has provided you freedom and happiness. Keep on doing what you love!

Blagodarya mnogo!
