    OFF-TOPIC Post a Picture: Your Favorite Places to Spend Free Time

    The Pyrenees (mountain range that sets the border between France and Spain) are my playground. Half an hour drive from home. Otherwise, the ocean is just one hour away and has great surf. Don't hesitate to hit me up if you happen to be around and want to go for some epic hiking !

    Quit my job after reading MJ DeMarco's book

    Hey man, Unless you have a good reason, like lots of savings, I would advise you not to jump ships so fast. At least have a solid plan before you quit. Ideally, you'd have a confirmation that your business idea is viable first (strong signals, sales). Lots of people here only quit their job...

    HOT TOPIC Fed Up With Your Country? Where Is Left to Go?

    I joigned the protests last week, and will go every saturday unless I have business to do. You may very well be right, I actually think you are, but at least I will have done something. Recent history has shown that when protests are strong enough, politicians have to give in. Apparently, it's...

    I just found an article saying that retirement would have to be postponed to 70 years old by 2060 in the EU, to maintain it as it is. This exactly concerns my generation. Actually, this is even quite optimistic as one of the hypothesis is that there will be economic growth at the same time...

    Getting Unscripted while having small kids

    You need to differenciate real signals that might indicate that the idea is not worth pursuing, from purely psychological stuff AKA shiny object syndrome. I would say the latter is more probable. Every time I have an idea, I first get excited about it, start working on it, then face the first...

    Give them bread and circuses. This is at least as old as ancient Rome, and I would argue as humanity.

    HOT TOPIC Fed Up With Your Country? Where Is Left to Go?

    I've lived in Brazil for 3 years. It's an amazing country and is on the top of my list for my next trip. I wouldn't want to settle or start a business there though. It's so corrupt and the bureaucracy is a freaking nightmare (and I'm French so believe me, I know about bureaucracy). Brazil is a...

    HOT TOPIC Fed Up With Your Country? Where Is Left to Go?

    Went hiking in the Spanish side of the Pyrenees in October, seeing them wearing masks while hiking in the mountains is one of the stupidest things I've ever seen in my life.

    HOT TOPIC Fed Up With Your Country? Where Is Left to Go?

    Thanks for writing this. I'm at a point in my life where I'm starting to think about these family things, but more afraid than ever that it will not be in my country. I don't mind moving, I've been doing so for 10 years but the idea of involving family makes me anxious. Glad to hear how well it...

    Well, seems like I'm done with bars and restaurants. F*ck off. Can't wait to escape elsewhere (eventhough the rest of the world is not much brighter...). The day the police turns on them, they are dead. And everyday, it has more reasons to do so.

    GTFO big cities. Same shit happening here in France. We've been in lockdown / curfew ever since November. But here in the countryside, you can not give a shit if you want to. I've been going out everyday and trained BJJ a la Fight Club all the time while contact sports have only been allowed...

    If the US dollar Fails

    Be careful with the euro. It has the same problems as the dollar, plus it's based on a fake nation (Europe) and creates massive issues between its countries. The dollar is still the reserve currency of the world. I also bet on the yuan as China is the only place in the world with regular...

    10% max income tax, 10% max capital gains tax, 4,5% VAT, beautiful mountains, great weather, 3 hours drive from home... Sounds like the way to go !

    Do you feel investment property is not worth it in your area?

    I do both (real estate is my main biz) and totally get your point. It's hard not to enjoy selling options once you start getting a grasp of it. The main advantage of real estate to me is that it is a relatively safe way to use leverage through a loan (it's also my main inflation play)...
