Career Freedom: Around the World in 80 Trades
Although this blog maybe about learning the strategies and tactics of self-made billionaires on the surface, at rock bottom it's about freedom. With that in mind, I'd like to share with you a great tale of a man who found freedom for a year.
The series, Around the World in 80 Trades, is about a man who places himself in such a predicament in order to test his mettle. Conor Woodman quits his job in "The City" (i.e, London's Wall Street) and decides to trade his way around the world using a limited amount of personal capital. When I say "trade" picture it the way it was done for thousands of years by traders and nomads traveling along the Silk Road. Conor trades in anything that he thinks can provide a positive ROI: camels, horses, wine, coffee beans, jade stones, surfboards, etc. Since its his own money, every trade counts. He travels across Africa, Asia, South America, and Mexico.
Each of the four episodes is approximately 50 minutes long. Watch Conor get off to a bad start when he's shut out of a camel trading trading market by the locals. This is great stuff if you're into adventure travel and commerce.
I include this series here for another important reason. Most of the billionaires we study in the Billionaire Strategies Course are or were superb traders. It's a key business skill to cultivate.
