I used to do Internet Consultancy and currently working
on my own The Local Company web trilogy project.
World traveler, pioneer of the Internet, self-employed since the 1990's, detached from society, in contact with the invisible, still single with no children, I am fortunate to be able to do what I want & when I want. Moved to Europe from 1999/2004 then Asia from 2006/2012 and still traveling since.
Currently in Canada updating my network in HTML5 before leaving for Australia or the Himalayas to complete my world tour with sole objective of finding the path that will lead me to inner peace, and thus be able to be smiling the day of my death. In the meantime, I like challenges and would like to hear from you...
Friends are calling me : "International" Steven
I love travelling, I go to eat when I'm hungry, I go to sleep when I'm tired...
Other than that, I'm behind the computer or traveling between 2 destinations.
It simply means "Marketing System" without the voyels because the .com is for sale at $15k and I don't really need it at the moment.
I first drafted it for Karatbars, as there's no need for the Bitclub and I experimented how easy it is to duplicate for me beeing the master in the system and it open my eyes to my future.
I secured this premium domain name after joining the club, I worked the SEO on it for a couple of months and it's now running on auto-pilot.
I am a proud founder member and encourage you to start earning daily bitcoins too.
While translating the Vizionary platform in French, they announced a new improvements in their compensation plan and I decided to get involved, after 3 months of mining the coin already *knowing a lot of things on the subject !
So here I am doing the elite again...
I always wanted a website with BIG fonts and BIG images slider on top of the page so this was my experiment with this one-page site. One thing leading to another - It may be the one idea that will help me reach the next level.
I kind of like it and now thinking to rename myself Karat Master, as a synonym of Webmaster.
Gold Director Elite is the highest rank one can reach in the Karatbars system and my new mission in life is to help the more people I can achieve it simply because : "You can have everything you want in life, if you will just help enough other people get what they want."
I now want to add 3 more in my team and will review my priorities only after when it's done.
In emails exchanges I sometimes say to strangers : "My name is Steven and I-A is what I do" pointing to my I-A website. I always wanted to include a link to my Steven website as well but was not really proud of the first impression it create.
In order to start 2014 on the right path, I finished 2013 finally redesinging it.
Home of Red Dao ethnic minority, Taphin village is one of the most popular tourists attraction of Sapa. Taphin is also the name of the commune, which may become an extension of Sapa district in the future.
One of my best acquisition following Cat Cat village, I also have the RedDao.com that comes with it, in addition of all the surroundings villages.
I had a vision for the lake when I imagined kayak rentals so I gave it a test online...
And it worked, I received calls regularly requesting more info about a product I was displaying online but did not existed in the real world, then I started listing home for sale and again, the phone rang and it was a fun experiment overall.
A new friend is creating a book with multiple co-author's, I filled up the form for fun and been asked for an interview that I passed and here I am writing a chapter about success and my breakthrough. You would have told me that few months ago that I would not believe you. Coming soon to an Amazon near you.
While the work on the beach is progressing in front of my home, I am still focus on trading crypto's despite the bear market and my 12 weeks long course is now done. I had the final exam earlier this week and results just came in this morning : I am graduated.
I discovered a cream I can apply on my body 90 minutes before a tattoo session and I don't feel at all the pain and it's a game changer. I now have confidence I will get this done by the end of the year. It's still the biggest piece of my budget and I kind of wish this will end soon so I can move on with other things.
I've seen this last year on a smaller scale and I survived 3 times (*blood bath) but this time is different as I am more involved (*I'm all-in yes) and it was a little bit more difficult to deal with but I'm OK and will survive again. No regrets and BIG lessons learned. Time is on my side... Yes it is :)
I've introduced a friend to TRI and he signup for the course, asking me to follow him and I said no. Then, he asked again and I said yes thinking it could be a good opportunity to spend more time together ... but 2 days later, shit happennedd and he's stuck in Europe and I'm taking the 3 months course alone.
My back tatoo is still in progress that I decided to start "cover up" already... As I don't like the idea of a big flower below the big buddha so I found a few original designs and will have 7 flowers on my lower back, including my butt. It's been 4 months now and I'm not even half way there : Ouch!
I tried to avoid that all of my life and it's at 48 that I finally made my first real estate deal by acquiring a 47 sqm beach front condo in Sin City! I love the location so much that I'm already thinking of getting another one and maybe start a new source of income by sharing with others the best view in town.
I don't drink and stop in Soi6 bars when I go outside so I finally found the missing link with the Chartreuse but it's nearly impossible to find here so I spread the word with the bars managers and the trick is to ask French tourists to bring some bottles when they come to Thailand... and it works.
A fun project here to keep me busy during the winter. I started with an arm and went "full back" right from the beginning. I now been torturing myself for one month and may have 10% done, I now have a good idea of the top and started playing with colors, a long story in progress....
I just had 48 years young and because I can not apply for the retired visa before 2 more years; I will strategically plan my retirement in the meantime so lot's of fun ahead. I now think this year will be made of Pattaya and next year all of Thailand, prior to get back to travel mode full time in 2020.
I do answer to everyone who took the time to send me a message, thank you.
