On this site, I share what I know on the subjects of Code, Money, and Budo. It is my intention to help and guide others in making, growing, and keeping their wealth. I believe wealth in the form of private property is needed in order to be truly free. Private property enables you to say NO. Wealth, private property, or money is not a goal. My goal is to be a free sovereign man.
I make money by leveraging a high-paying skill like Coding. I live humbly below my means and I always pay myself first, so my wealth will continue to grow. I invest and trade to keep it growing without working for it. This does not mean it is passive, but it means it grows independently of me working for someone else.
Maintaining your (family’s) wealth, however small, is maybe the most important thing you can do. Owning hard assets and having the proper legal structures will all help to accomplish this, but when it all comes down to it, I believe you need to be able to fight in order to be (mentally) able to keep what is yours. And this is why I practice Budo.
Code is everywhere. Without it, the world as we know it today would not exist. I believe everyone should know how to code. Not everyone needs to be an expert coder, but everyone should at least understand the basics. It is just like reading and writing. Not everyone needs to be a novelist or scholar, but being able to read and write gives a better understanding of the world. I believe the same applies to knowing code.
I have been coding professionally for more than 10 years now and I am completely self-taught.
If you want to start and learn to code, then I have you covered. I have created a course that you can audit for free right here on this site. It is the same course that I have taught to over 6000 students on Udemy.

Money is at the root of all evil? Not really. The thing is that many people do not understand what money actually is. For a long time, I did not know either. It is not something that is taught at school, not even in economic classes. I believe that maybe only monetary economists are actually educated on the topic of money. The rest of us will either learn about money from our family if we are lucky, or we will figure it out by ourselves. The fact is that many people will never know what money actually is.
What most people call money is actually currency. The Euro, the Dollar, the Lira, etc. are all currencies. I trade currencies, among other things, but I do not hold them long-term. What I do hold is Gold, Silver, and Bitcoin, which I consider to be a form of money.
Budo is the way of the warrior. I have been practicing Budo, in the form of Judo and Aikido, for all of my life. And recently, I have also started training in Karate.
I am not a violent person. In fact, I am the complete opposite. However, I do understand and have accepted that violence is everywhere. The physical component of violence is only a small part of the daily threats of violence we endure. It is always there and it is mostly not coming from the people around us in our community but from our governments and other institutions of authority. To explain this I always like to say: just don’t pay your taxes for a few years and you will see how violent your government will be towards you and your family. They will break down your door and take you, hostage, until you pay up.
Anyone can benefit from practicing Budo or any other form of martial art. Although you might never end up in a physical confrontation, just knowing you could handle a situation like that, will give you the ability to live your life with confidence and less fear and anxiety.
