Borderless Podcast

In this episode we are joined by Mariza Taillefer of the Abroad podcast. By the age of 30 Mariza had finished her MBA, was making six figures, got married, owned a home, a dog and yes, even a picket fence. About a year later, she found herself very dissatisfied with life. Her marriage ended, her job was a drag and her life was in a rut. She decided to take off to see the world. She went backpacking throughout Europe and spent several years in Brazil where she met her fiancé.

Mariza ran across a very unknown detail of the Spanish business visa that makes it very accessible to digital nomads and location independent entrepreneurs. It even makes Spanish citizenship available in two years for qualified people.
