Andrew currently loves Eastern Europe and talks about how to safely allocate your assets so that they work for you both on a short-term and long-term basis. Andrew recommends that entrepreneurs should first focus on creating a location-independent business that will give them the financial freedom that is needed to travel. Once you’ve established yourself there, focus on income-generating assets, and then focus a good 10-15% of your investment portfolio on long-term value investments like property.
