What did I do in 2016 ?

The 5 years cycles

The 5 Years cycles

5 years ago, I've experienced troubles renewing my visa in Vietnam and returned to Canada. 5 years prior to that, I was landing in South East Asia and 5 years more earlier, I was landing in Europe; where I also stayed 5 years, which make me realize I'm living on 5 years cycles and it's time for me to go back into travel mode.

The Golden Shop

The Golden Shop

It's an old concept I had and now that I got a system, it's a perfect timing to create and launch that custom branded cards and I'm working on it ... But in the middle of the process : I learn that the moment that I've been waiting for since +2 years finally arrived so I switched my focus and put the MS & SM in stand-by.

The Golden System, part 1

The Golden System, part 1

I got a crazy idea last month and I've decided to go ALL-IN on it. I'm not even half-way done and it already cost me more than I can handle but that's Ok because big risks = big rewards. I've been told it's impossible and I like that kind of challenges ... So I am on my way to go where no man has gone before.

Karat Star is born

Karat Star is born

I paid a visit to my gold partner this month (*first time we meet after years of talking together) and did happen what I suspected it would happen if you put me & him in the same room for a while : We ended-up changing the world with a V3, he confirm me that my first impression was right and we're both Karat Stars.

Bye bye the land

Bye bye the land

I took a 2nd month off to complete the work on the land, I even went a step further managing a part "planned for the future" around the garages, I gave it all I have and got rewarded by a surprise I wasn't expecting, like a knife on my back and lot's of things are going to change and that's Ok...

Working the land

Working the land

I had a downpoor the next day I sowed the grass field and it ruined the whole operation + most of the land is still under construction so I took the month off to take care of all of that... I've done a great job extending the garden +30%, I also managed the part of the neighbour and even took care of the garage level.

Silver 31 - Save more Gold

Silver 31 - Save more Gold

It's NOT online yet but I'm leaving a trace as when the Silver31 strategy has been imagined & designed but not yet implemented. I'm very proud of my Gold partner on this one, it all started with countless hours turning everything upside down in spreadsheet and there's nobody that digged deeper than we just did.

One Man Gang = Half-way done

One Man Gang = Half-way done

I got involved thinking I'll have to study for 12 weeks before getting started but now that I reached the 60 days mark, I am tempted to go on with this but haven't took my decision yet...

Oh My God - 20 years online

Oh My God - 20 years online

I celebrated my 20th anniversary of working online last month and I rewarded myself with a OMG membership. Simply put, I joined a masterming group instead of creating my own and it's probably one of my best move this year so far, as the guys made me realize that there's a lot of people out there looking for the skills that I have and I am now considering offering my services to others ... A first in 20 years !

Bitcoin Investment

Bitcoin Investment

I played the Lotto with MMM and as I suspected - I lost but it made me discovered the HYIP universe and I am now testing Coince Bitcoin Investment. It looks like the timing is good so I'm playing the lotto again and time will tell if it was a good move ... or not !?! (Sept. Update : I lost $3200 USD)

Sponsor Child & Smart Machine

Sponsor Child & Smart Machine

I started building my "Seven Plus Team" website and I was moving all of my guides under the same roof when I got introduced to a web platform in beta who blew my mind away. It's not just changing my way of working but also my way of thinking, as I'm now considering offering my services to others, as I can now easily implement whatever people needs. But first things first : I'll start by covering my needs.

Bitclub Dot Com

Bitclub Dot Com

I started the month by acquiring ton's of Clubcoins, which lead me to discover the Bitclub Network and I ended-up securing the dot com (*my latest acquisition) which open me the door to so many opportunities and I'm still unsure about what I'll do next with it. On another side, my first idea was to create a web platform to optimize their Network and that's what I'll focus on for the month of March. Let's wait and see !

The Master, V2

The Master, V2

I have decided in 2016 that I'll be providing more value than anybody else and I haven't found more original that offering for free what people are paying for elsewhere. How's that for a way to make new friends online huh ! So I started redesign my KaratMaster website with a members area so I can track the people who's using my tools and it's still in progress the time I'm writing this update.

Here's what happened in 2015

I am a Crypto Elite

I am a Crypto Elite

While translating the Vizionary platform in French last month, they announced a new "elite package" so I ended-up developping a "Crypto Elite" because they also improved their compensation plan and the whole thing is pretty exciting. I'm accumulating the CPC since 3 months now but didn't want to get involve with the MLM but there's only the crazy people who don't change their mind so here I am doing the elite again.

Le Vizionaire

Le Vizionaire

True to my habits, I feel precursor again while I started mining the Capricoin before the masses but to be honest I'm a little late in the game. One thing for sure, I'm still part of the 0.0001% so it's still a HUGE opportunity and for that reason, I translated the whole Vizionary platform in French, so I can introduce it to my warm market in France. I even secured the .fr but it's not Ok for me to use so we're still ...

The Penthouse Project

The Penthouse Project

I got involved into the Capricoins and started accumulating those for pennies, as some people I know are saying it's will be worth dollars soon ($10's and $100's) so I am now mining coins as much as I can. I started reaching 1000 to realize I should have 10,000. When I reached this milestone : It seems obvious that I need 20,000 (so I did) and I now have target +100,000 as a way to save 1M (*easy come easy go)

Working on the land

Working on the land

I had to took 2 weeks off to work the land at the lake as we have a new sceptic tank installed and the work involved scrapped gave me the chance to equalize the land who previously look like a roller coaster ride when cutting the grass. We saved some bucks and decided to use those savings to create a new entry at the opposite side, so I can get into the garage ... for the day I'll have one.

The secret of the Universe

The secret of the Universe

After 2 months of inviting my Tahiti leader home for the sunsets, he finally start doing it on his last weeks in Quebec paradise. Funny thing is that he's coming every day now, which gave me the opportunity to know him better and showed him the secret of the universe. He also positioned himself as a Vizionary and I'm proud that he finally started listening - Too bad he discovered the sunrise of his last week.

Team France is coming

Team France is coming

There was suppose to be a synergy between 2 teams some time ago but destiny choose differently, which made me get involved more in developping a team website and I'm proud I did because not only it's helping the current team members but since I added a languages option in the platform : It'll also help the Spanish team and it's the thing that will help me develop my Team France.

My 12 weeks challenge

My 12 weeks challenge

I was not spending enough time with my leader that I decided to take a 90 days challenge to reach the top of my organization and I haven't found more original that taking notes of all my moves for accountability purpose. It's funny because few weeks after : I'm happy I did this way because it's very practical and useful to trace everything.

What a blessing

What a blessing

It took me only few weeks and a powerful affirmation to receive & welcome Andreas into my life. I am so fortunate to have this leadership coach & new friend and want to express my gratitude for the way things happened. Which is another demonstration of the power of the I AM ... I can't wait to get involved with his products but priorities first ... it sure looks like an amazing year in progress.

Distractions are GONE

Distractions are GONE

Dad moved to the city and I seized the opportunity to be alone in the waterfront cottage. First thing I did was to clean the place from useless items gathering dust, which gave me the chance to get rid of 3 shelves, and relocate the computer on the other side of the room to have a better view on the lake and getting more lights inside. I shut down the telephone and television (useless to me) and I'm just getting started...

TEAM = Together Everyone Achieves More

TEAM = Together Everyone Achieves More

I spent way too much time building a TEAM site but with the direction I am heading, it will be very helpful in a short future so I can now say I now have solid foundation to start building my content on. On another side, there's been a redesign at corporate office but no news yet about the APP so my business owners strategy is still in stand-by, which is OK as it's giving me the opportunity to focus on my global goal.

Does these words ring a bell to you ?

Does these words ring a bell to you ?

My path is opening. I am ready to begin. I'm inspired. Momentum moves me. I move forward with passion, power and certainty. I am vibrant, alive and filled with positive energy. I am productive. I follow through. Great and powerful changes are happening all the time. The right use of my energy is crystal clear. Sequencing is natural for me. My priorities are clear. I know what is right for me. I know what to do next.

Moving Forward

Moving Forward - Now is better than later

I'm eager to get started and finishing things. All the waiting is over and I'm moving forward now. My life is important and meaningful. Now I'm making progress. The more I get done, the better I feel. I love getting things done. I get chores out of the way, quickly and easily. The best choices are obvious. All I need to know comes to me. I act with clarity, focus and intention. One step at a time, everything gets done.

What did I do in 2014 ?

Thanks to the Universe

Thanks to the Universe

Sentence is completed and it's time to get going with everything. I was reading "Get Real" & got reminded me about Robbins, which inspired me to update my audio collection and I did full time since. Haven't took long to get in connection with the Universe for great things to happen...

Karat Master is born

Karat Master is born

I gave the Business Owners a try with a Tradeshows campaign and did not get the expected outcomes but that's a good thing because the whole process wasn't fully automated so it lead me to Karat Master adventure. I renamed my FB and the dot com was available so I tested a big font one page Bootstrap and the result exceeded my expectations. Can't stop thinking about the palmtrees, while the snow is back in PQ.

Business Owners

Business Owners

It took me more than 3 months but I finally found my way and will start working on this starting November. They say : "There are things in life that are worth to be waited to be appreciated - looks like my plan is part of it". I'll keep it for myself for a while but I'm already excited to start sharing it, so others can benefit from it too. In any case, it should fix my freedom once for all.

Karatbars Forum

Karatbars Forum

This month, a keyword got me into buying a domain, which got me into a phpBB forum (a 10 years flashback for me) but since I'm fan of Bootstrap3 now, I found a way to implement it and the result is quite good. I'm waiting for next month to launch it as I'm still not convinced yet about the operating mode (*solo VS group) so I asked support from headquarter and time will tell ...

K Exchange Centers

K Exchange Centers, V2 in progress

Discovering "gold by the gram" last month lead me to the K-Exchange Centers, which are going to become the cornerstone of Karatbars International in the coming years, representing the main hub of Karatbars with it's constant motion of gold transfers & exchanges by clients & affiliates. Obviously, it's sitting on top of my trilogy strategy.

Karatbars International

Karatbars International

I still have hard time believing the opportunity was there and I missed it but it's never too late to get into the action, here am I talking to a Dr. in Kentucky and start planning a strategy to spend our winter's under the palm trees. It's the plan in progress but it's twice more fun when in company of someone with the same goals.

Individual Retirement Account

IRA & 401K

I now have my feet deep into the IRA world ("Individual Retirement Account") and I got this wonderful domain at an auction + a 401K related that is complementing my RA strategy. I spent the whole month focused on that and I don't plan to change anything until the first lead.

Regal Assets World

Regal Assets Gold IRA

There is a golden opportunity knocking at my door this month. It took me 2 days to take my decision before jumping into the market. Yes, another one ... Same same but different ! I used my "out-of-the-box" thinking and we're on to something here. Time will tell, let's wait & see...

The Forex Company

The Forex Company

I decided to jump in the Forex market but not by trading like the majority but just by selling shovels. I've spent a week analysing the keywords to end up working on the French market, I've acquired +100 strategic EMD (Exact Match Domains) and still building a network of websites.

Bitcoin Authority

Bitcoin Authority

I've been introduced to the Bitcoins universe and I'm very fortunate to have found a germ while searching for a specific and targeted web property. I didn't had time to complete it that I won a powerful domain name at the auction that lead me to another path, in that same spirit.

Discovering Microsoft

Discovering Microsoft

As incredible as it's sounds : I am just discovering Excel and Power Point after 18 years behind a computer (*and I'm quite proud of this achievement) Excel was kind of easy and I got surprised with PP presentation possibilities. Only few days were necessary and I feel like I'm mastering those since forever.

Back to school

Back to school

After succeeding an online course, I discovered "Giving With Purpose" and "The Challenges of Global Poverty" courses on the same platform but founded another platform and got into the University of Maryland following the "Globalization of Business Enterprise" and "Developing Innovative Ideas for New Companies".

What about 2013 ?

We survived the 21/12/2112

Still alive, 1 year after the 21/12/2112

A hell of year where all of my initiatives to find a strategic partner lead nowhere so I'll be doing what I was trying to avoid and will search for angels investors instead to help me complete my web platforms, as there's things I can't do myself and not in a favorable position to invest more than I have.

Maps & Geolocation

Maps & Geolocation

For years I'm keen to learn more about developping an application running on Google Maps API's and I finally found the perfect project with the Responsible Guide, which will be like a competitor of Responsible Travel as they're not willing to go in the direction and the vision I'm seeing so be it !!

I stopped blogging after 8 years

I stopped daily blogging after 8 years

I read the Looptail book who inspired me to start Twitting and developed a fundraising platform for the author but he doesn't answer my messages, and I'll keep it for myself which is improving my trilogy. After 8 years of daily updates, I stopped blogging but will return to those activities when I'll return in travel mode.

Do they really care about others ?

Do they really care about others ?

Unicef, Plan, You name it, Helvetas, Oxfam are a big waste of time. I am wondering if it couldn't be more simple to create my own foundation in Canada. I changed my STVN layout, I am innovating with a paysite with membership levels and I redesigned Taphin.com.

The month of the pyramid

The month of the pyramid

I am discovering the world of the foundations and how complicated it seems to be to be able to get some action done.
