The 2 Ways For Young People To Build Wealth: Which One Will You Take?

The majority of expats in third world nations live-off interest income or yields from high ticket assets such as rental properties.The problem with expatriating with this method is you need capital. Lots of it. To accumulate capital you need time. By the time you cash-out you will be old. You will be one of those old retirees who is gasping for air while chasing bar chicks. How did these guys do it? They have been building their capital for decades and enjoy the fruits at the tail end of their life.

So how should young people (gen Y and Millennial) build  wealth then? Young people have neither cash nor skills. Does having no cash and no skills mean you should first build capital until you have enough to live on investments like these guys? WRONG. What young people have is the most valuable asset in this world: TIME. You cannot buy time. Everyone gets assigned a finite time and yours is still plenty. A young person is rich with time. Consider that all these old guys would trade every single cent they have for a chance to be young again. As a young guy, you have this asset and that is the most precious asset that you can ever have.   

You can choose to grow your money by saving and investing like these old guys. However, there is another way. You say, “Third World Hero don’t fck with me.. I have dreams and aspirations here!” I’m not. This is a logical reframing of how you should look at building wealth. The only realistic way to build wealth is to control your costs while increasing your income. It really is that simple. Now there are two ways to do this.

First is to be an employee. With an employee, just like the old man, your ultimate goal is to control your costs through frugality. Growth comes from interest compounded on savings after a LONG time. You will not be in control of your income. You will trade your time for a set amount of cash. You will not be in control of your time. You get a set time (usually 40 hours) of work a week. Your per hour rate will always be less than market value so that your employer profits. You will only develop skills your employer requires. You can build wealth this way by being frugal. You will enjoy your wealth at the end 10% tail of your life. Your friends are interests as they fuel your capital growth.
The downside is that you might not make it. Consider what happens when the market tanks. This is what happened to Americans recently as they saw their life savings evaporate. Consider if this happens before retirement or before you take the leap. What if the house value you were hoping to increase suddenly gets obliterated (just like a mortgage crises)? What if you get replaced by automations? How about outsourcing? There is more to this than just numbers. What if you don't want to be frugal? What if you want to enjoy your youth? What if you want to enjoy your life? 

The second way is to create a non-job. With the non-job, unlike the old man, your ultimate goal is to build an income system that is scalable. Instead of interests, growth comes from scalability. You will be in control of your income. You will be in control of your time; you can devote 40 or 100 hours to your work. Your per hour CAN be scaled (an employee doesn’t have this). You will learn the skills that you need. You will keep all the profits. Because you are in control of your time and the direction of your income system, you can compress your working time to pump out a viable system in 5-10 years. Your friends are scalability. It allows you  to increase income over costs at a faster rate than growth on interest. Consider that online income systems produce at 24/7 365days a year.

The downside is failure. This is where young guys have an advantage. With your time advantage you are able to fail and fail again. Think of a $1000 investment with 1/10 of succeeding to create $15,000. Will you take it? With the ability to fail you will have multiple chances to play. You only need to hit it once to recoup your capital and profit. Older guys are limited because their time is already scarce and their capital is locked to provide their income. Young guys should use their time advantage on that one successful roll. You are unlikely to hit it on your first try. But consider that on 7th try you already possess skills and experience and on the 10th you might even have mastery and have better odds. 

The choice will be yours. However, young men are forced into this as well. I know, as a millennial, the traditional concept of being an employee are being challenged. More and more millennial are opting out of the rat race. They are exploring, innovating, and providing value to their end users. These millenials to save costs are starting from their parents home, friends basements, small apartments, and increasingly, in third world nations. 

Choices you make early on will have the most impact. If you change course by 1 degree in the beginning of a 5000 mile trip, it makes a huge difference. If you make that change in the last 100 miles, you’ll still end up in about the same place"

7 Personal Changes You Encounter From Living Overseas

//Quick Update: 
I have surpassed my online challenge… I am now hovering at $xx at the moment. I know it’s pretty stupid to share income reports. But I want to journal this to help others by being as honest as I can.  On related news, I finished one my guides for Dating Filipinas. That should keep me motivated enough to write and grind for the third world hero project. Please check it out by clicking the side bar. I am servant to my readers after all. 

Do you gain awareness in travel?

7 Changes From Living Overseas 

1.The American Eye Gets Partially Blinded

This means acculturation. Think of this expatriation process as an alien creature grafting itself into your cerebrum. This alien rewires part of the brain and changes the way you see the world. This is the reason why traveling makes you a different person. Local cultures influences your thoughts and perceptions!

2. Revert back to Self.

 At six months, when the initial euphoria wears off, you will undoubtedly revert to your old self thus you gain awareness. Introverts will continue being introverts. While acculturation changes the way you look at the world, you will still have your old disposition. It is not a magic pill. .

3. Lose weight.

Realize American food is bad. The huge portions and high caloric counts make the people fat. While Filipino food gets a bad rep for being unhealthy, it can’t be compared to American food! Portions abroad are much smaller. The smaller portions helps to reduce weight. There are more to losing weight than smaller portions but living abroad does make one slimmer.

4. Enculturation towards the strata

This might be specific to living in a third world country. But the stratas are very defined in the Philippines. You start to become aware of the economic rift. Then with increased awareness you start perceiving the stratas. You become aware of faux pas.   For example, wearing sando and flip flops in the mall is a NO NO. More on the strata in the ebook.

-          5. Mentally Feel HAPPIER abroad 
      This only works for some. I noticed that my general well being has increased. Whereas in America I would have the tendency to fall into mild depression every three months, I am not seeing that here. It must be the sun, the food, the people, or the pussy.. I don’t know what it is. So if you have a tendency to feel depressed in the USA or Europe you should consider expatriation for mental health reasons. For example, snowstorm can wreak havoc to my physiology so without snowstorms my disposition has remained sunny!

-          6. Experience The Joy Of Females

 Dating abroad is different than dating in the USA. Either the men have more value or the sexual value between the gender is at parity (more on book). If you are dateless in the states (like how I was), then consider that you are losing out on the experience needed to filter our potential mates. Overseas (Philippines) dating is fun! This allows you a larger sample set to learn from. When you are “dating” you are supposed to be dating with a health turnover, so as to see the traits that you like in the opposite sex. This allows you to discern female psychology and basically enjoy sensuality!

-          7.Develop An Eye to Read the Prices And Local Business Economics

 Every expat will see their knowledge of local prices come to a point where they will be able to bargain (I talk about in guide). I still think in Dollars but I can tell whether something is over priced. Business transactions start to make sense. Some goods are expensive, but another class of goods aren't. It becomes intuitive. My advise found in this article still holds: 4 Quick Tips on Transitions Abroad. Do not let your dollars flow when you first get here.

      What about you? Have you also noticed changes? 


Young and Pretty Filipina. Why She Has Problems Dating And What You Can Learn From It

So explain to me why it’s hard for you to meet guys here again?”

I asked her. I could a feel tinge of sadness in her voice. This girl was in her late 20s and a pretty mestiza hybrid.

It’s really like that over here… what about you?

My head ponders that this chick would not last 1 month in America or UK before being fenced in by a man who would have thought he had won the dating lottery.

Oh.. well you know.. dating is not a really problem for me here” I quipped.

It’s true. Unlike her I don’t need strategies and tricks to land a quality partner.  She knows it. And she knows deep in her heart that the dating world for a female is skewed up over here. She has thought long and hard about landing a quality guy in Manila.

Well.. what about the US navy guy?

The US navy guy is this American who works at the local embassy. She had swallowed the pill and joined an online dating service, changed her location (to make her unsearchable), and started seeing this American guy who roughly makes php90k a month.

Well.. he doesn’t make enough” she exasperated!

What do you mean he doesn’t make enough? He makes roughly twice of the average Filipino!

I knew there was something there. I kept pressing.

Well.. it’s just that.. well there are the Havana girls

The Havana girls. That’s what they call them here. The Filipina version of the gringo hunters. If you read the ebook, you can learnwhere to meet them, how to spot them, and how to filter them. They are kryptonite to the upper/middle class girls.

There are Havana girls after him and I don’t want to go that low!!

Something sociological there. What is happening? The rise of the Havana girls is the current dating shift in the sexual market in the Philippines. Basically, these girls who are from modest means (masa strata) who are exclusively targeting foreigners. They dress slutty, act slutty, and are basically a quarter-millimeter step-up from prostitutes. But they definitely pass the boner test!

haha! I know what you mean girl” I said as I bit my lip to prevent telling her about my experience with them.

So what should I do?” she asked inquisitively almost desperately.

Should I go do masters in the USA to get a boyfriend?

This chick, obviously rich, with a cute chinese-mestiza face asking me for dating advise. I’ve met these types in the USA before. But what I saw was the end-result, and what I was witnessing now was how it got to that point. She wants to leave Manila because she can’t land a quality guy!

She continues, “well I already went to the college in London and these guys would message me endlessly! I had a date everyday all day!

Oh yes, I am sure you did” I calmly said.

It was making her miserable. Funny how our sexual dating market value is now the polar opposite. She schemes of landing a date very much how men in America do! What a mindf*vk.

However, I know for a fact the shift of her dating value in the USA will corrupt her. I’ve met countless of these rich Asian girls in American universities taking their masters (codeword for looking for a man). She would be corrupted and seduced by the throngs of the desperate western men. In one year Americanization would be spreading in her body.  

They think Asian girls are exotic!!” she said.

I know they are. In a different world she would have had me going nuclear on scheming how to date someone like her; she would probably deny me then. However, in this world the balance of power is tilted in favor of the men.

Well.. I don’t know.. I think there are options” I said with an assuring voice.

What options am I talking about? All the good men in her strata are taken. Leaving the undesired local men and the local Alpha bad boys who are dating numerous girls in a perpetual rotation. What options does she have really?

Bluntly I said, “well I think you should date down

What I really meant to say is that maybe she could continue to date down a strata (what is a strata? why is it important? Find out in the ebook).

I don’t really care if he has money just as long as he’s real!

My mind instantly flashes the Eminem’s Superman song.

uhhh yeah girl run that game Uhhh rotten pieces uhh that’s great.

She’s in a tight spot.  She knows it. The dating market world in the middle-upper strata are locked tight. She’s tried everything – she has even approached local guys in clubs.

Well that Navy guy is not rich according to you!” I retorted

But the Havana girls.. I don’t want to go that low! I can’t compete!

Wow. She said she can’t compete. Actual words. So sad. But sadder that it’s true. Her strata had locked her in. She faces a dilemma. If she dates the Navy guy she risks social suicide. One post in facebook with him and then he dejects to these Havana girls and people find out he dates Havana girls, people would associate her with a Havana girl. She would immediately be completely locked out from the upper strata dating. Tough spot to be in.

Thankfully, she has a dating expert in me. I already told her she was lucky to have met me. Maybe unlucky because she wishes to be with me but can never have me. I digress. She’s lucky I have traveled and studied the arts of seduction. I gave her one piece of advise that is prescribed to the girls trapped in her dating quagmire.

you should run a marathon

It’s true. It would probably change the trajectory of her romantic life. Something so obvious but it isn’t. But one arrives of these solutions only when one has completed many dating missions in different countries and has developed the “read” an eye for the dating scene.

if you get into the health scene you would meet quality men

I didn’t want to explain it. I felt I should charge. But I wanted to save her parent's money.

Upperstrata men, and foreigners, enjoy a huge sexual market value in Manila. The end result is basically they are able to date a SHIT LOAD of girls. In cases where you can date a shit load of girls, you learn to discriminate. Along with no divorce laws, locals learn to assess quickly for quality. Sexy looking bar sluts are nice to look at but they don’t make for serious material. You start to emphasize values and “realness” of girls.

One of the most effective ways of discriminating and filtering for quality is the health circuit. There are many reasons asides from ensuring females have healthy physiques and are health focused. Local men have many of these filtering strategies, a survival strategy meant to filter for quality girls. Expats are already learning to implement them. I wrote about another simple but powerful filtering strategy for foreigners in theebook.

I added “you meet them Sunday morning, not Saturday night

Why the hell did I help this girl? She should have just figured it out herself. But my time was short and I had more to do. I already have a date with another girl who is waiting to show me her massage skills. In a way I feel bad for these girls.. well.. not really.

well.. listen..  I have to go. So Saturday you bring me out right?” I said to signal that our time is up.

yeah.. I’ll pick you up at seven

What Creates An American Incel?

I have always felt an affinity for the incels in the USA. Incel if you do not know means involuntary celibate. These are guys who cannot break out of the shell of their virginity.That is a tough spot to be in.

If you don’t know my story, I am a minority guy in the USA who also faced the racism in the dating world. Of course, the dating world is only the reflection of the whole of society and it translates and pervades the entire life force of a man. It affects everything.

Fact is: if you do not fit the standard models in the USA, you become an outcast quickly. If you have one quirk then you are sent to be an outsider forever banished from the world of normalcy. My whole issue was that I was a square in a round hole. Things were working against me. This only reflected in the dating market.

How can you say I am a flawed individual who cannot get with girls when I am now in a position of managing harems and writing about the psychologies of females? A simple location change was all it took! From coming home blue balled in the winter to suddenly turning down girls for a chance so they may “pitch” why they should be with me.  

But fact is, when I was in the USA, I too had problems in getting involved in a normal healthy relationship. It was all an accumulation of the forces of society that made me leave. It made me experience the hardships that would later strengthen my resolve and also develop the humility to help the others who are also in dark hours of their lives.

Incels are here on the internet because they have nowhere to go. I was there too bro. It sucks. But I have helped others find a way out of that tight spot. Like I said, I had an incel roommate Indian engineer that made over 100k and ALSO was a vegan muscle builder weighing over 200 pounds. Every guy he met liked him. But why were the females non-receptive to him?

Oh I don’t know. Maybe him being Indian? Or was that too politically incorrect?

Fact is there are many forces that rule our lives. We could fight these forces, we could succumb to these forces. But the important thing is to realize that these forces do exist. That’s why I created my first online venture that deals with this taboo topic. Because, bro, I’ve been there and it sucked big time. I am here now and I am in sexual nirvana but I will never forget that spot.

So shout out to the incels out there! 

2 Indian Guys before heading out to try to pick up girls. My roomie is one on right. The other guy wearing blue blazer (which is mine) had to go back to India to marry a wife. He makes roughly the same.

Don't Get It Twisted: Expatriation Is a Hustle, Not A Vacation.

Have you ever wondered about how those location independent types did it? I will let you in a secret now. They didn't really figure things out. The path they chose made them become location independent entrepreneurs. It was the path they chose that made them. After debaucheries of pussy, tits, ass, and the overwhelming need to explore.. one is confronted with the need to make cash.

You might be there trying to figure out how exactly how you need to make cash because you are just so sick of living in the first world. Well tell you what. I will not give this reader a single resource or web links on how to make money overseas. You will get none of that from me! YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU.  All you will ever need is g**gle.com; since I am nice I will make it easier. g*ogle.com

What’s more is that I will tell you that I have only principles on how to make cash. Just ONE principle in this article. I will only base it on what I’ve done and what I am still in the process of doing. NO. I WILL NOT TELL YOU ANYTHING CONCRETE. So if that’s what you’re looking for, please hit the back button now.

I've just finished a project involving my very first online product. I already have a sale. It is the first of the string of products that I will eventually put out to market in the online sphere.

What has allowed me to create a product?

Answer: The Third World LOW COST PRINCIPLE

The Six Aspects Of The Third World Low Cost Principle

1.) The only thing that is worth to note in the Third World Hustle© is that it predicated on the idea of low cost.  The low cost is everything. With low cost you BUY time. BUY time to learn how to make money. BUY time to get your ship in order. This time is expensive in the first world, so you come to the third world to BUY the time that you need to make your move. Did I know what to do when I got here? Not a flippin clue. But I bought time to learn and learn and learn and eventually developed my own product. 

2.) With my cash accumulated in the first world, I am able to prolong my stay in the third world thus giving me an advantage that is unavailable to somebody living in a developed nation. I am getting the most bang for my bucks. You want to dance with me?  I have a cost advantage here --- how can you outlast me?

3.) With low cost, I am able to FAIL and FAIL again. The price of failure is not very steep here because my costs are low. For every FAILURE that happens to me I become stronger and I learn. The failures made in the third world are mitigated by low costs. Every FAILURE builds me a skill set. This skill-set grows and grows. The low cost allows me to build something that is MINE and even if I do go back to the USA: consider that I  now have a new hustler skill-set (which is marketable) and something that is mine that gives me something on the side. I mitigated the downside right there.

4.) What does life look like here?

The third world hustler is only concerned with the development of his income operation. My days are overwhelmingly involved in work. Days turn to weeks and to months developing projects. This is the nature of this path so take away any notion that it is party all day every day. Those are for vacationers’ not third world hustlers! It is mostly wake-up, work-out, and then work until the sun goes down. You will be amazed how WOMEN BECOME A DISTRACTION in this lifestyle. Ironically, women can sense a man on the move and they end up chasing you!

5.) What’s the point of living a third world hustler if all you do is party until you  become a poor man waiting to be dragged to the airport back to your first world prison? Not for me. What I have here is opportunity to start my own income operation and that is why I am focused and relentless and cracking my goal. I don’t spend on luxuries. I take public transportation, cook my meals, turn the light of when not in use (electricity is expensive!) and do not indulge in tourist trap activities.  

6.) I will give this venture my all because I have an opportunity here, not just a chance to stick my dick in countless birdies. Like I said, all that stuff about girls will quickly dissolve into the back of someone who has a mission. If you don’t have a mission then I will give you one: FREEDOM. FREEDOM is why we (me and the countless of entrepreneurial American men) come to the Third World. We start things here and that is what separates us from the vacationers. We have the FREEDOM to create, FREEDOM to innovate, FREEDOM to fail, and FREEDOM to succeed. 

THIS IS ALL DONE WITH THE LOW COST DERIVED FROM LIVING IN A THIRD WORLD! What else is there? Everything is in front of you.

So what’s stopping you?

you see a babe, I see a distraction
