    The Barbarian Investor

    Hi There,

    My name is *************** and I am 35 years old. I became a carpenter in 1986 and continued to work as a carpenter until 2000. I remember going to work some mornings so cold I could barely feel my hands. Working 12 to 14 hour days six days a week. Coming home covered in saw dust and absolutely exhausted.

    Sure the money was good but I thought, " there must be a better way". So in 1997 I began the search for a better way.

    Lets face it. If spending the day working, going home absolutely exhausted, watching some TV, having dinner and a shower then repeating this six days a week was a life then I didn't want it.

    So I began looking for a way that I could have money work for me instead of me working for money. Just to give you some perspective back then I knew absolutely nothing about what an investment was.

    My idea of a good investment was buying a cute girl 2 more drinks than I had.

    Now as you can imagine I had worked hard for my money so I didn't really want to take any silly chances with it.
    But I really needed the money for two reasons, one was lifestyle now and the second was to support me in my old age. Everyone knows that you can't work as a carpenter when you are sixty. And I really didn't want to.

    We all get older with each passing day

    Much as I would like to dispute this fact I can't. Each and every day brings me closer to retirement. So what was I going to do when I retired????

    Was there going to be a pension? Probably not so all that really left was my retirement fund

    Call it a 401K IRA or Superannuation whatever

    As I saw it, it was probably going be the only thing between the breadline and me come retirement. Of course I could rely on the charity of family or friends but chances are my friends may well be in the same boat or maybe even worse.

    As for family they will probably put me into a home and if they can't afford a good one then neither could I.

    So how could I avoid this fate?

    I decided to learn all I could about global investing. I spent close to $100,000 on over 30 investment seminars around the world.

    Visited financial planners, accountants and financial advisors but all I got when I asked about offshore investing was a blank _expression or vague look. Instead they told me how dangerous it was or how scary it is out there.

    Dangerous and scary to me is trying to live off 3% per annum or trusting my future to 3% per annum.

    If I had $100,000 invested at 3% pa for thirty years it would only be worth $242,700. To me this was totally unacceptable.

    Look at what happened when I looked at a global approach to investing!

    I discovered a mutual fund by the name of the Templeton growth fund and if I had invested $10,000 in 1954 it would have been worth over 2.8 million dollars by 1996.For the same time period money in a bank account grew to a whopping $48,600.

    This is just one example and the more I looked the more I found. I knew I just had to learn how to get into investments like these. So I did and now I have many investments that exceed my wildest expectations.

    So what does this have to do with you?

    Lots. For the very first time I am going to tell you exactly how I did this. How by following my simple step-by-step formula you can also gain access to these amazing investments.

    But before we get into this I want you to imagine your perfect lifestyle.

    Imagine going to sleep and waking up the next morning knowing that you have just made money while you slept. While you were sleeping your investments were diligently creating more and more money for you. And once you set this up you don't really have to do anything else.

    I know this sounds impossible but its true. But when I decided to create this website I realized that I had a problem.

    My problem is how do I tell you about my awesome investment techniques without coming across like a con man or just full of B.S? I'm sorry to say but that is one of the biggest problems on the Internet since you really don't know whom to believe.

    Listen I'm not going to tell you a heap of lies on how you will be a millionaire overnight. I'm going to show you how to do it legally and right.
    Notice I don't hide behind an alias or fake email address if I am home when you call I answer the phone my number is ************ and you will notice that my complete address is on the bottom of every page.

    As you don't know me, I don't expect you to believe what I am saying until you see;

    Some of the best managed funds for 1999

    These had a three-year cumulative return of

    Nicholas Applegate US Growth

    JF Macro Absolute Return Trust

    JF Japan Warrants

    Of course these returns are great but there is actually a much bigger benefit than the money and that is that once I found what I was looking for I didn't have to do anything but watch my investment grow.

    Now I have the time to do what I want when I want and I keep making money.

    Actually most of my friends can't figure out how I do what I do.

    My grandma doesn't understand me and Dad thinks I'm a drug dealer.

    Now I'm not trying to brag about this and certainly don't want you to think that I'm smarter than you, I just want to point out that I do this. I live eat sleep and breath this.

    There are lots of so called experts out there trying to sell you their own brand of snake oil but only a handful actually make their money doing what I do. And even less than that give an unbiased opinion.

    The only way for the little guy (like you and me) to succeed is to take control of our own financial destiny.

    I know it sounds impossible but it's not. Give me a few moments of your time and I will show you how.

    Here is what I don't do;

    Firstly you should know that I don't rip anyone off. And I don't invest in unregulated or unregistered investments. I don't invest in Internet schemes or anything immoral or unethical. And I certainly don't gamble

    So what do I invest in?

    I invest in offshore mutual funds


    Because no other investment vehicle possesses the attributes of quality, liquidity and diversification that a mutual fund does.

    Designed as a low cost common investment vehicle for like-minded investors, mutual funds provide a means to pool monies together for the purpose of investing in investments, according to the criteria outlined in the fund's prospectus.

    Every investor is treated the same way regardless if they are investing 1 dollar or 1 thousand dollars. And the best part is that when I have selected the fund I want and made the investment it's all hand free from there on.

    8 Reasons why Offshore managed funds investing beats conventional investing

    You have the whole world to invest in instead of limiting yourself to one country
    An expert is managing your money
    You are treated the same regardless of investment amount
    You can redeem your money without any hassle
    There is an investment that suits everybody
    It is quick
    Anyone can do it
    It is profitable
    By now you are probably thinking wow this is just too easy.
    But where am I going to find out about this stuff?

    You could spend years of your life looking for this kind of information on the net or attend expensive investment seminars (but lets face it with most of these seminars you really need to go to each one, two or three times so the information can sink in. So imagine if the seminar cost $10,000 each time well that could amount to as much as $30,000 dollars just to learn one eighth of what you are about to learn.

    Consider how much easier it would be if you had a resource that you could refer back to time and again. And it was written in plain easy to understand English.

    I know you are probably thinking that offshore stuff is hard so I will tell you what you don't need.

    Lots of time You don't need lots of time because once you make the investment you only check it once every 3 to 6 months
    A college degree The information is set out in a step by step manner so it is just like joining the dots or painting by numbers
    A Financial Background Everything is written and presented in plain English nothing is hidden in financial lingo
    An understanding of different investments All of this is explained in detail
    At the moment there is no better way to secure your financial future than by global investing.
    So now that you know what is possible how do you do it?

    "Offshore Investing?
    Your Building Blocks to Global Wealth

    Forget what you may have heard about offshore investing.
    What I've done is put together building blocks for global wealth.

    I'm sure that you have probably heard many things about offshore investing both good and bad. Please put those pre-conceived opinions aside for a moment. You could spend a lifetime looking for techniques that may or may not work and only find half of what is contained in Offshore Investing

    What I have done is put together a step-by-step method for achieving global wealth. Every step is outlined from beliefs and conditioning to writing the letter to obtain the prospectus to making the investment.

    Here is what you will find between the pages of your book

    The difference between simple interest and compound interest.
    Why you should consider a global approach to investing.
    Which offshore-managed fund had a 3-year cumulative return of
    Which type of investment vehicle will work for you.
    Where to find opportunities that will skyrocket your investment portfolio.
    How to read a prospectus and what most of it means in plain English.
    How to circumvent rules that may hinder your investment approach (legally).
    a reference section with some of the best books, websites and offshore financial services ever put together in one place.

    If this is really true then why are you telling people?

    I was asked why am I doing this? If it is so profitable why don't I just run seminars like every other so called expert does? Well the truth is I do on occasion present at seminars but I wanted to get the message out to people that maybe couldn't afford one of these seminars. After all these people probably need this information more than anyone else. And the other thing is I'm getting sick of the traveling after all I've been on the road for almost three years solid now.

    I was in a prime position by attending all of these seminars for the last 4 years over 30 in total and was able to make friends with many other experts in their respective fields and get a no holes barred no nonsense honest appraisal of what works and what doesn't.

    So what I have done is put together a book with the best information available today on offshore investing. My guess is that this information would have cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to accumulate. Then another 3 months to put it on paper and prune away the unnecessary area so all you are left with is just the facts and steps on how to do it.

    Think of it as a DIY to global investing.

    So lets assume that I charge $100 per hour (modesty prevents me from revealing my true rate.). Now assume that it took me 175 hours to put this together then this should be worth $17,500 but I'm not going to charge anywhere near that because I want everyone who is serious about global investing to be able to afford this book. Don't underestimate the power of this book, at this price your investment would be well worth every cent –

    Risk free Guarantee

    If you want to order, I insist you do so entirely at my risk. That is why your book comes with a …….No Risk, 100% Unconditional 1 Year Money Back Guarantee. There is absolutely no risk on your part with this 1-year, Unconditional Money Back Guarantee. What I mean, is I want you to order without feeling you might "get taken" After all I am a respected speaker, presenter and consultant and my reputation is on the line. Therefore, I want you to order this material today……….read it use it …..if for any reason you aren't completely satisfied, simply return it for an immediate refund of your purchase price. You simply can't lose. And even if you do return the book you can still keep all of the bonus material. That's my promise to you.

    Secrets of global investing

    Studies have shown a major contributing factor to success is the use of a mentor. Someone who was able to help them get a start whom they were able to emulate or model. If you are just looking for information then there is certainly no shortage of books or information on the Internet (although nothing like this). But if you want the experience from someone who has and still is doing it then you can't go past *****.
    Where else are you going to find out how to invest without the use of a costly structure? That information alone could save you tens of thousands of dollars.

    Now here is something else that I want to mention

    It doesn't matter to me if you buy this book and learn how to invest globally. After all I will still continue to make money. I will still continue to increase my wealth and live a full and interesting life.

    In fact your decision to start investing won't affect my lifestyle whatsoever.
    I'll still travel the world, go on long holidays, drive nice cars and eat in the best restaurants. But I promise the decision will affect yours.

    The questions you've got to ask yourself is. Do you want more than 3% p.a.. Do you have what it takes to become a global investor?

    This might come as a surprise to you but-most people cannot say yes to these questions. Sure. They think they can but the truth is they would rather come home from work and veg out in front of the TV and continue to wish that there lives would change.

    But I don't think that you are like that. Since you have read this far I think-You're ready to join the ranks of the global investors. Go ahead. What have you got to lose - you owe it to yourself and your family to take advantage of my awesome offer.

    If you are serious about financial freedom then there is no substitute for this information.

    Look, You can make excuses and you can make money---You can't do both

    P.P.S. Remember, unless you decide to do something to change your future you can only expect to keep getting the same results from your life. Don't kick yourself later when you realize you've missed the greatest opportunity for the average person to achieve financial freedom through global investing.
