    187: A Guide To Becoming A Global Citizen with Dominic Volek

    In today’s rapidly changing world, it’s important to have a plan B for yourself and your family – one that offers a safer place to live in times of crisis, while also providing you with greater access to global business and lifestyle opportunities.

    That’s why I’m excited to be speaking with Dominic Volek, Group Head of Private Clients at Henley & Partners – the global leader in residence and citizenship by investment. 

    The company has over 55 offices worldwide and has helped over 25,000 entrepreneurs and international investors secure global citizenship.

    In our conversation, we discuss why now is the ideal time for entrepreneurs to diversify their portfolios by obtaining additional residency and citizenship. Dominic explains how this approach opens doors to expanded travel freedom, new investment opportunities, better education, and a more versatile lifestyle. Citizenship can even be passed down through generations, so it’s a great way to set your family up for future success.




    In this episode, you’ll learn:




    ✅ How ultra-wealthy families use domicile diversification to protect their wealth from potential political, economic, and environmental risks.

    ✅ Strategies for getting a fast-track to a second passport without needing to relocate and change your current lifestyle and base of operations.

    186: TLI Member Spotlight: Unlocking Passive Income by Starting Small with Asim Hafeez

    186: TLI Member Spotlight: Unlocking Passive Income by Starting Small with Asim Hafeez

    Today, I’m talking with my friend, and one of the original members of The Lifestyle Investor Mastermind group, Asim Hafeez. 

    Asim is also the owner and president of Empower Energy Solutions – a solar panel business that’s brought in over $200 million in revenue to date. 

    While that’s definitely impressive, his success didn’t come without having to overcome some major setbacks as an entrepreneur. But as you’ll come to hear in our conversation, his stick-to-itiveness and selfless leadership allowed him to persevere. 

    You’re also going to hear us talk about how he got started as a Lifestyle Investor and why seemingly small wins – like covering the cost of Netflix – meant so much in the beginning. Nowadays, Asim’s passive income covers much more than that, and allows him to live life on his terms. 




    In this episode, you’ll learn:




    ✅ The lifetime value of one coaching call – and why Asim believes that the ROI of the Lifestyle Investor Mastermind is infinite.

    ✅ The story of how Asim saved a failing solar company – and why he’s helping his employees create a job optional life.  

    ✅ Asim’s strategies for creating passive income – and the steps anyone can take to cover their monthly expenses (even the smallest obligations), so they can start to build a life on their terms.

Great content, better humans

I think what’s unique about this podcast is there’s a level of humility amongst all the interviewees. They’ve made it, but it’s core to who they are to give back. You FEEL it.

Episode 177

This episode was great, as always! My future bother in-law is part of the mastermind group and I’ve been listening to your podcast for a while now and even taken your MHP course already (fantastic by the way!). Anyways, I had a suggestion to be able to get your foot in the door with different high schools. I was a recruiter for the military for 3 years, my suggestion is to utilize local military recruiters and their resources to build that report and get that much needed time in front of students. It would be a win-win and something I would have used.

Episode 177

Great discussion on the topic of financial literacy in the school system. As a father of three young boys with a wife who is a teacher, we are now planning to homeschool our children and I think this program will be very useful. My suggestion to get into school districts is to go in through job fairs and scholarships. Once the course is introduced through that lens, you would gain a lot more attention from the district.
