Why I don’t lend money anymore

Several “friends”, acquaintances and other people,  have asked to borrow money from me.  I have lent people money to help them with business,  cancer treatment and other stuff.  Most people disappear with debt, others just lie and some guys are just struggling. (because of the reasons below) There is always a good excuse, its never…

The world of crypto trading

Guys have been asking me for crypto advice, these are my Crypto coins observations, I am no expert.   4 years ago I brought 2 mining rigs for 300,000 baht but the cost of electric went up to a silly amount which would have been worth it long term,  but at the time I couldn’t…

Building a rock solid future in Thailand

Kind of related to my Total Immersion thread http://bryanflowerspattaya.com/2017/02/17/total-immersion/ (well worth a read) I have lived here over 10 years and I see guys come and go all the time.  The guys that leave fastest are the guys that cannot limit their fun,  or ration out their vices. When I first moved here I decided I wanted…

Teamwork

A guy critised me for doing too many businesses at once and overstretching myself, yet they have never spent a day with me. They do not know what resources I have, they do not know anything at all about how I do things or my mindset,  so I will explain one example here. Lets use…

Mosquitoes, heat, heavy traffic and bad schools

Mosquitoes, heat, heavy traffic and bad schooling is what puts me off living in Pattaya, Thailand, but I have cracked all those issues, sort of. Mosquitoes – I now have an effective zapper inside my house running 247,  so its killing almost all of them off.  If I put a zapper outside it will mean…

Re-calibrating

Re-calibrating The last 2 months of my life here have probably been the worst since I arrived around 10 years ago, from guys cheating me, making business problems, staff problems, problems with authorities and just generally dealing with low life’s.

Living in Pattaya long term.

If you want to live in Thailand forever. The only way to do it is build a business and a brand. Short term insecurity means long term security. If your business folds you didn’t adapt or pay attention to the market. And you can always make another business using your experience gained. To start this…

Finding good staff in Pattaya.

Most business owners struggle to get good staff in Pattaya. Finding skilled workers is tough. Finding one reliable and punctual is almost in possible in Pattaya.

Mentoring

I feel like I am stating the obvious here but I see so many newbie guys starting up business with little or no advice or worst of all listening to friends with no business experience. I see alot of people failing and struggling,  sometimes its an ego thing and they know better and they don’t…

Investing In Thailand

Deal fell through for a different reason

A barowner/friend of mine told me about a bar for sale on soi 6, but he warned me the guy selling the lease was not to be trusted and hes got issues with the police. This puts most people off but sometimes the best deals is when everyone else is scared. (i wasn’t going to…

Eat dirt, cry, suffer and masturbate.

  I can’t believe how much guys value themselves at the start of businesses and paying themselves good salaries using investors money before the business actually starts making profit. This often causes conflicts with investors and between business partners. I personally think you should eat dirt, suffer as you build up your business. Lots of…

Pattaya is doomed

These are the titles of the threads that have been springing up on Pattaya web forums for over 8 years in my personal experience and sometimes we have bouts of them as recently. Most of the members that start the threads seem to fit in one or more of the categories. Non-drinkers, non-Thai speakers, lackadaisical,…

Advice for investors

Investors and aspiring business guys here are very difficult to match up, everyone has different agendas and there are too many ifs and buts.  There is just to much bullshit in this town and often the only way to contact people is through word of mouth between mutual friends. It would be nice to make…
