Hi, I’m Nathan Rose. Citizens of the World is my website, and practicing global citizenship is the philosophy I try to live by. I’m an author with a passion for borderless living, minimalism and freedom. In 2014, I quit my job in as an investment banker to travel the world and start my own business.
Over the last few years, I have:
- Spent time in over 30 countries. I hold legal residency in three of them.
- Started my own agency, which I ran entirely location-independently.
- Self-published several bestselling books.
I believe the early 21st century is the most exciting time to be alive in all of history. Technological changes have enabled a new class of people to hire remotely, do business internationally, and live wherever they choose. They are “citizens of the world” – not in some vague, cultural sense – but in a very real, practical sense. This website is dedicated to how you can make the most of it.
“The secret to happiness is freedom… and the secret to freedom is courage.” – Thucydides
The world of digital nomads is the Wild West of the modern day. It is an incredible time to be alive.
Cryptocurrency. Offshore bank accounts. Gunslinging SEO and social media pros. Hacking the system. Automation. Borderless hiring. E-residency. Fortunes being made from the unlikeliest of places. Larger than life personalities, living on the frontier. A gold rush.
It’s one of the great untold stories of our time. My upcoming book, Citizens of the World, will attempt to capture something of the essense of this movement, and what it means for the rest of society.
