Andrew discusses why holding a mediocre passport may not be as bad as you might think. It is no secret that tax laws are only going to get stricter, so perhaps it’s time to have other options where you’re not forced to stay in one area for the rest of your life. By holding another passport, you may have more flexible visa options and won’t have to jump through as many hoops to travel and explore new countries. Tune in to hear Andrew’s full commentary.
