Why I Left The United States | The Truth

Why I Left The United States | The Truth

Why I Left The United States | The Truth

well you know uh sometimes you got to
just do random stuff
so a lot of you guys have been going
ballistik on tiktok which by the way
follow me over there i've been growing
like 5 000 followers a day or something
wild
i've been toking about a lot of stuff
showing my move to puerto rico
toking about what's going on in wall
street as well as real estate e-commerce
all that fun jazz and cars some
hilarious car videos that are getting
millions of views
well one of the frequent questions i've
been getting probably about 2
000 times is why puerto rico why did i
move here why did i really move here
well we're gonna go deep into that today
so if you're ready for the video make
sure to drop a like down below it's
definitely going to be an interesting
one
and let's jump in if you've not seen any
of the previous videos over the last
couple months i recently relocated about
2998 miles from my home
in arizona to an island called puerto
rico
while people get upset at me for saying
i left the u.s i left the united states
this is a united states territory okay
it's not one of the 50 states
while there might be a ballot trying to
go through for puerto rico to become a
state
which i think would be impossible for it
to pass because it would instantly be by
far the most expensive state to live in
there's a lot a lot of things that went
into this decision and it wasn't random
it wasn't impulsive
it wasn't quick so today we're going to
tok about why puerto rico why this
place specifically i have friends who
have moved to dubai
thailand people going to panama i know
people doing a bunch of crazy stuff
because they work online and they can do
that i have friends who live in vans and
they just drive around the u.s and it's
super cool
but there's specific benefits for
depending on what you want to do and
every situation is a little bit
different
so the primary reason that i moved to
puerto rico
is taxes now i do love living at the
beach that's something that i really
enjoyed when i was in california for a
little bit over a year
during that year i also spent a couple
months in bali and thailand and got to
experience some different cultures
and puerto rico is very much so a
different culture while it's still a
part of the us
it's very much so a spanish-oriented
culture it's really cool i love it down
here
most people are very friendly and i mean
it's cool so
the main reason obviously that i i was
entiked to even visit here in the first
place
was the taxes which gives me a
competitive business edge so
we're going to tok about this real
quick and i want to keep this as simple
as possible
um but i was paying 42.5 taxes living in
the united states
minimum that was the minimum that i had
ever paid okay
here in puerto rico that number between
both personal and business
falls a little bit below 10 so it's
almost as if you're doubling your income
in terms of you know after you spend
your money on housing from your personal
expenses
they're pretty much doubling almost the
businesses net income so
it's not just for the sake of having
more money stokpiling in the bank in
fact i hate
having money in the bank it's something
that doesn't work well for me but this
allows me to have more free capital
to invest inside of my company and in
other ways so here's some things that
i'm looking to do and that are going to
be super fun that i can do more of
create more jobs that's something i
always love doing i love not only giving
someone a great place to work
i'm super flexible as i've never said as
a boss because i don't consider myself a
boss or an employer but as someone who
can you know have someone work with me
or for me
i think i'm very flexible in terms of
that for an example my in-house
bookkeeper i've had since
january or february in 2020. she's
working full-time all year exclusively
with my company
um almost full-time sometimes she'd go
part-time she had a baby
and she wasn't coming into the office
much and i didn't really care i told her
i'm like yo i don't even need to see you
ever
as long as you're doing your job i have
no reason for you to be sitting in an
office using a desk space and a computer
that's provided this
absolutely not necessary waste your time
driving every day your gas
risking a car accident which can cause
insurance or health issues there's
absolutely no purpose
maybe we'll meet once a month but you
know i'm very flexible as long as people
are doing their work so i love creating
more jobs
also being able to create new products
so
when you have a ton of new cash inside
of your business that
maybe you want to spend as a write-off
which now my write-offs don't mean as
much they don't have as much weight
because now i you know i'm not paying as
much in taxes but now we have more free
capital to create more products
so for an example for my e-commerce
company we can now spend
more to produce the product because our
biggest expense
taxes right a lot of people don't think
about that biggest expenses taxes not
products or advertisements pretty much
always taxes
now that that's heavily reduced not
eliminated but heavily reduced
we can spend more money to get better
product quality try new products cooler
products
create new products both from a physical
ecommerce perspective
both from a digital perspective as well
as from a software perspective so i've
been toying around with the idea of a
couple different shopify apps
i see some gaps in the marketplace where
there could be something easy to fill
that and you know it might cost twenty
or thirty thousand dollars to build each
one so
with that free capital you have more
options now from an e-commerce and
advertising perspective which you guys
already know is kind of where i geek out
at and that's where i have a lot of fun
by the way check out our facebook
program linked below and all the fun
free and paid resources
if you want to learn e-commerce i get to
now
bully my competitors even more than i
used to do and this is fun from a
business perspective
not trying to put anyone out of business
of course but i can now
outbid my competitors from an
advertising perspective so if you're not
familiar with how advertising works
most paid platforms facebook ads google
ads tiktok ads snapchat ads any
platform like that
that's a paid marketing not i'm gonna
put i'm gonna pay you 10 grand to post
on instagram
an actual paid marketing platform
they're all based on giving you
customers through their algorithm system
which works on a bidding system okay so
there's a lot of different variables and
factors that go into this
but from actually acquiring a conversion
it could be a scheduled phone call
it could be someone buying something a
lead opting in to download something for
free
whatever your business is literally
anything whatever objective you're
trying to get a lead or sale
all of that is based off how much you're
willing to pay for that okay and a lot
of people leave their advertising on
automatik bidding which is where
facebook or google just determines how
much to spend for you and you know they
kind of do it fair and this company gets
a lot of people you get a lot of people
and just kind of keeps everybody happy
well i do a lot of manual bidding inside
of some of these during certain times of
the year so that i can like
snipe these customers a little bit
better pay a little bit more
now i can definitely spend more money
because now we have more free margin
so we can acquire more customers get a
lot more people even if we're not making
more dollar profit
we can now spend more and close that 30
gap so the 30 plus that i'm saving in
taxes i can now take that right out of
my own margin by reaching more people
so it's not like we're actually keeping
much more money and i will use a chunk
of that for advertising you can be sure
of that
because now long term you're reaching a
lot more people and acquiring a lot more
customers so
just from a business competitive edge
this is a very
very important one right here i'll
underline it for you okay
number four create more high quality
housing at an affordable price
so for those of you who've been
following me here on the channel over
the last year and a quarter
i've been playing around in real estate
which has been a huge passion of mine
for a little over five years i've always
loved real estate but at the end of the
day it takes capital to get in you know
a lot of people are
asking me on tiktok and stuff how do
i get the ball rolling how do i have a
thousand dollars how do i start real
estate i'm like dude
there might be a creative solution you
know you got your fha loans but you're
probably still gonna need to be walking
in with 10 15 grand but yeah you can
flip a wholesale contract
that's just not me i've never done that
because i never put a ton of time on it
i wanted to have the cash to buy the
rentals and the style of real estate
that i wanted
so i used e-commerce to do that it was
pretty simple but my goal with real
estate i'm not going to tok about the
numbers specifically like that could be
a topic for another one
but i love creating affordable housing
that is of fair market value
after we do a renovation so if you were
to look in the areas that i rent in
my property specifically compared to
anything surrounding it except for the
huge you know crazy
luxury apartments and whatever i'm
pretty much giving every single person
a much better place to live in for a
better price than they can get elsewhere
i'm cash flowing they're getting a great
place everybody's happy
that it's just super simple and i love
it it makes me feel good it's something
that i enjoy doing and definitely plan
on doing long term
plus i get to learn a lot about debt
different types of debt the residential
loans commercial loans on residential
getting to understand all the renovation
process taxes cash flow a lot of that is
super fun to learn
and i've always enjoyed it so it's been
a great learning experience and i can
definitely do a lot more of that
when i have free capital to work with so
you know i've been eyeballing a couple
properties i've been sitting on the
sidelines
waiting for some deals everything's been
really interesting and there's been a
little bit of a shortage of inventory
with all the pandemic
stuff nonetheless um yeah we'll see what
happens this year i'll keep you guys
updated with new stuff i mean you guys
probably saw my duplex renovation we
still have one side of that being
renovated right now
it's about two and a half weeks in
should be done in the next week or so
which is great so
i can do all that while supporting the
economy in puerto rico
which is an amazing place so the program
that i'm a part of and you can do all
your own research if this is something
that interests you but
nonetheless the program i'm a part of
has about 5 000 people in it the island
has about 3.1 million people
it's a very small group of people it's a
specific type of business that's allowed
to move here
you basically have to be 100 online and
able to own and operate your business
here
there's a little bit of issues with
inventory and i had to work that stuff
out but
nonetheless it's pretty simple structure
and they're trying to boost the economy
here the economy hasn't been doing too
well so
it's great to be able to support that
versus just the us which
if we want to get into some of these
things collapsing government systems in
the states
way too many idiots around and you know
this has just been replaced for me
after moving there it's just all the
people on tiktok these days are just
saying crazy things
um adventure i love adventure so coming
out here is a huge adventure
and no cars this is a big change i don't
have a car on the island
i'll probably buy some beater or a jeep
or something eventually
because uh you know all the potholes and
whatnot but yeah we'll see it's gonna be
a big change for me i still have three
cars currently in arizona
but we will see what happens throughout
the year i'll kind of be back and forth
so
definitely a big change for me i do plan
on selling some cars so
i'll keep you guys updated as that
happens but not to get politikal or
anything but i mean
watching the government go absolutely
bananas watching all the stuff right now
on wall street
go absolutely bananas it's just been an
interesting time
and i like being a little bit away from
that i've always been a little more of
an introvert i kind of like to do my own
thing so
similarly to when i moved to california
and i lived on the beach i didn't know
anyone within a hundred mile radius
maybe one or two people but they were 45
and worth 100 million and you're not
just hanging out with them every day
so that's something where you maybe get
together once every other month and play
a game of golf and i pay
you know so it's like that type of
structure i didn't know anyone
down here i don't really know anyone so
it's like you're just completely focused
and it's absolutely amazing i love that
environment and i'm excited to be back
in it so
that is kind of the reason why puerto
rico toking about the taxes the
advantages why i did it
as well as some of the crazy stuff going
on so i'm sure this is going to breed a
lot of questions everybody's always been
interested especially on tiktok which
by the way
follow me over on tiktok it's just
bowls hayden it's kind of my name's
flipped
i post a lot there you guys are going
absolutely bananas we're growing like 5
000 followers a day on tiktok
it's hilarious but posting a lot of cool
stuff about real estate
posting a lot of stuff about the stok
market and everything that's going on um
really digging deep you know i was i was
one of the i don't know if i was the
first obviously definitely wasn't but
it was one of the earlier people to
really dig through congress documents as
they came out
lawsuit documents as they came out with
robin hood everything going on with
gamestop
as well as the citadel capital and
melvin capital all these things
happening so kind of
just giving the honest truth about
