In this post, I cover some of the key elements of John’s book, including his B.E.A.R. Trap analogy and how it is most likely keeping you poor.

Coronavirus Preparation: Preserving your health and wealth in a crisis

Back in March, when the coronavirus was just starting to rage, many thought it would be over by summer. At the time, I wrote: “As I write this, there are over 100,000 cases reported around the world and over 3,600 deaths. And it only seems to be getting started.” Less than a year later, as I write this, there are 81 million cases worldwide and 1.7 million deaths. The advice I give in this post is just as relevant today as it was then, including the 5 Gs you need to stay wealthy in hard times.

My Multi-Billion Dollar Mistake: A School of Hard Knocks Story

A number of years ago, a partner and I found massive amounts of gold in a mine in China. For a couple months, we thought we were billionaires...until China didn’t renew our license. This taught us some valuable lessons you need if you want to preserve your wealth. But these are hard earned lessons that many in power don’t want you to hear. In fact, China banned my book, FAKE, because of this story, and YouTube banned my video on it (for a time). Thankfully, that was restored by the tireless efforts of my team. Read it now before someone else shuts it down.

Cryptocurrency

Trust and Cryptocurrency

The powers that be don’t like cryptocurrency. And it’s no wonder: they don’t have control. But as the rise of cryptocurrency happens, there are three types of money emerging. God’s money is Gold and Silver. The people’s money is cryptocurrency. The government’s money is dollars. Governments don’t like God and people’s money because they can’t control it. I like them both because of that very fact. God and people’s money have integrity, and central banks do not. Don’t believe me? Read this post and find out why for yourself.
