Successful Expat Tool

Successful expat

My biggest fascination with successful expats is the creative ways in which they earn their income. Expats do this while residing in foreign countries, including those that are considered 3rd world. Timothy Ferriss is the author of a book entitled “The 4-Hour Work Week”. On one of the pages Ferriss explains how he traveled the world and lived like a king. Timothy really caught my attention when he explained how this lifestyle of his cost as about as much as rent in the United States.  How is this possible? Is this possible? There are successful expats who verify that Ferriss is telling the truth.

I try to pick the brains of these expats. They almost always provide me with some sort of platform of a company that helps people earn via the internet. The least amount of money required by a company to teach you how to earn money online, the stronger that company usually is. This seemed strange to me until I saw the light. It’s very simple. They lower the price as much as they can without shooting themselves in the foot; the cheaper the price, the higher the number of customers. The more successful students that they develop, causes people to talk, and that formula seem never to fail.

 

An expat introduced me to a system that truly impressed me. it’s  called the “Web Wealth System.

 

“Web Wealth System” allows others to plug directly into a proven system where all of the heavy lifting is already done for them.  They get handed sales pages/videos, email swipes, banners and anything that they need to be successful.

As always, I provide information which is passed down to me as well as a link leading to more information. For more information fell free to click the link http://nanacast.com/vp/10002619/781468/

MOUNTAIN BIKING (AN Interesting Sport)

mountain_bike shadow (1)

The next sport that I would like adopt is mountain biking. I am not interested in the crazy trails that I see the younger fellows attacking. The intermediate trails seem just enough to sooth my interest without breaking my back.

The hardest part is going to be convincing the Mrs.. She has gotten used to watching me maneuver the white waters in my kayak; she has watched me take part in a few judo competitions and has observed my karate and Tae Kwon Do competitions, vowing never to watch them again. Also, the Mrs. had gotten wind of a mountain climbing incident that could have ended my life many years ago. Needless to say, she put a stop to my mountain climbing career. Now, my dilemma is how to break the news to her gently.
To add to the dilemma, I have put the cart before the horse, by finding an answer as to how to get started in the sport. I have discovered an Essential Bike Buying Guide. This book seems to be the perfect step by step foundation to building the knowledge needed to find the, most suitable mountain bike. It cuts through the mountain biker jargon and concepts that may be confusing to a beginner. See for yourself…click the following URL.

JUST HER AND ME

We truly enjoy the V-Eight styled PFD life jacket, although our original plan was to use them for kayaking. The freedom of movement is outstanding. And the life jacket allows your body to breath more due to ventilating ports. This is perfect for hot days, less heat buildup.

One of our all day trips; twenty miles up stream, and twenty down stream. Just me and the Mrs. What a team!

My Last Climb and Repel

img Mountain Climb140

 

A two hundred and fifty foot climb and repel. One of the things that I had to give up for marriage….she said it was too dangerous. Well I was working in a prison at the time, and I would think that to be even more dangerous. Oh well….I thank the Lord for being loved by such a caring Person.

People often ask me what I got out of mountain climbing and why I miss it so much. Well… I used to climb trees when I was a kid, (the higher the better) and I got a surge that ran through my body as the wind blew in my ears. The surge became stronger as I reached the top. It was so powerful that it made me sleepy at times (I’ve fallen asleep in many a tree when I was a child). I enjoyed looking down on the houses and buildings but the joy was in the climb. It’s hard to explain, but every limb felt as if it was an accomplishment.

When it comes to mountain climbing (which I truly love although I’ve only climbed a few times as the practice was put to an end by my significant other) it’s a whole new ball game. When climbing a mountain, every decision counts. The mere reality of the phrase “point of no return” sets in. While climbing, I would come to an agreement with myself that there was no ground; only the sky. However, I would always look down after I was about 50 meters from the top. And that was where the effect of the beauty would set in.

Let it be known that I am a God fearing man, and looking down on trees that were thirty (30) to fifty (50) meters high as if they were bushes gave me a perspective as to how small I am to God. Looking down on a small portion of his glory made a tear fall from my eye. Then there are the people whom you meet. Those were some of the most interesting and friendly people I’ve ever met. Some of them were down right lovable.

I never consider myself an outdoors-men, I’m merely a person who enjoys the outdoors and what it has to offer. We all came from nature, therefore we change when we are in nature. The world and all of its troubles don’t seem to matter as much out there. I was focused on the climb and learning from those who are true climbers and outdoors-men.
