Mikkel Thorup Expat Living and Offshore Investing

Throughout his explorations, Mikkel Thorup has kept a keen eye on different investments and businesses. Putting money where his mouth is and finding some very interesting and often very different opportunities.

Mikkel Thorup believes people should understand that just because someone was born in one country it doesn’t mean that they need to spend their entire lives there, and it certainly doesn’t mean they need to keep their money and investments there. Often there are huge tax advantages and economic benefits to building your business and wealth abroad.

A high school dropout, Mikkel started failing out of school at 12 and completely left school by 15 years old. But he never gave up his passion for learning. Now, he still enjoys reading over 100 books a year on topics such as entrepreneurship, marketing, economics, and investing.

Mikkel is a firm believer in continual education and chooses to reinvest a large portion of his income back into himself through courses, training and coaching every year.

He has made it his mission to serve others and constantly gives back to the community by sharing his knowledge in Entrepreneurship with the hopes of impacting others in a positive manner.
