#PathofaTrillionaire

Honestly, I'm not too great at telling my story or talking about myself haha.. But bare with me...

The TL;DR version is this:
  • I want to fund my lifestyle without having to work for someone else.
  • I want to create value for people and thus support myself through that value prop.
  • I want to change the world and bring as many people as possible with me to the top!

I knew I wanted to change the world through cool technology since I was a kid...

This Patreon will allow me to see if people are interested in following, funding, or even joining my journey to building cool things.

If you do, then Huzzah! If not, then waaah...

Either way, please feel free to share your (constructive) opinions or feedback on how I can better position myself, how I can better tell my story, and how I can add value through my journey.

My What
I plan on Changing the World by creating epic ideas and executing them beautifully. I want to create 'magical' technology that empowers people to live fulfilled lives, in harmony with the environment.

My goals basically fall under 3 avenues:
  • Empowerment - People are happiest when they feel self-empowered. When they feel in control and competent. Therefore, I want to create institutions that empower people to believe in themselves enough to create amazing things and just live the life they want to live, on their terms.
  • Accessibility - Empowerment is empty without access to the resources to actually make things happen. So I want to decentralize distribution, create more renewable resources, and facilitate the flow knowledge and relationships between people. 
  • Inspiration - None of this matters if people dont get even feel like making change or doing something awesome in the first place. It seems that people are more creative and more likely to want to do something cool when they see cool things; things that make them go 'wow' and question whats possible. Thus, I want to inject a good amount of 'magick' into everything I do. Of course it will always be open for people to learn and build upon. 

I know full well that this is not a trivial or easy thing. It will take decades of hard work, 'luck,' and epic execution to achieve. 

So I know where I want to go, but I dont have much of a clue on how to get there. 

In fact, there is no set 'way' to get there. 

Every step I take is a brand new path forged on my journey to become a Trillionaire... or, as I like to tag it... my #PathofaTrillionaire!!!

What Im Doing Now
I am currently working for free at a dope startup, called EmployToy, building innovative HR tech. I initially interned as a dev and a marketer but am now gaining experience in PM and Business Dev/Tech Analysis.

Though I am sure we're going to get funded/paying customers soon, and thus all this hard work will pay off... I still want to learn how to become financially free 'on my own,' without a typical job.

Nonetheless, I am working at this startup (instead of starting my own) 
so that I can learn what its like to build something from scratch under people with far more experience than me who have actually created amazing and cool things before.

As of now, I have exactly $40 in my bank account... in fact, I technically have some (small) amount of debt in the way of what I owe my parents since I'm not paying bills (anymore).

Therefore, my first *major* milestone would be getting out of my momma's basement!! (Talk about 'started from the bottom' eh?!)

I actually was going to launch a GoFundMe for that... but Patreon feels less like begging and more like just straight up exchanging value for funds.

Why Patreon instead of just selling things or depending on ad revenue and so on as a blogger?
Simple. My hypothesis for a future where everyone can sustain themselves without traditional jobs does not include ad revenue or depending upon these inherently flawed economics. 

I am also doing multiple things: blogging, podcasting, and more abstract things such as learning cool stuff. I think itd be great if we can create an economy where people gain 'points' for learning things and sharing or applying that knowledge. These points are basically currency... but come directly from those who consume or benefit from said knowledge. Patreon is the closest thing today to that concept.

My Why
I am so adamant about becoming a Trillionaire, not for the money or power or influence, or because I think I'm a genius salesmen or product guy or anything; it's simply because my natural talents and habits are geared towards thinking BIG. 

I tend to naturally have an ambitious idea, then work backwards in order to figure out how to start.
Unfortunately, for most of my (short) life, I found it nigh impossible to actually backwards engineer my goals (like Hovercars) all the way to a practical starting point... but Now I have!!

Furthermore, I want to test Gary Vee's hypothesis that people want to be part of a 'Rags to Riches' story as it happens... not just after the fact.

So I want to document as much as I can while at the same time including people beyond my immediate circle into the journey. This is something that has never been possible before the internet. And still hasnt really been done since the internet became a thing.

I... We... can be the First! The first to live and create such a massive come-up story!!

--

All that being said... below is a list of pretty much all the things I am working on and have planned right now.

Job/Career:
EmployToy - Working at a pre-seed stage startup teaches me how to 'build something from nothing.' This is how I am learning the nuts and bolts of entrepreneurship and business so that I can maximize my success once I launch my own.

Personal Projects:
  • Dance - My hobby, kinaesthetic passion, and self expression. I have a 'secret' wish to be world-famous dancer like Marquese Scott AKA Nonstop.
  • 3DWeb/ Holodecks - My personal lab and building blocks to the virtual webX (future of the internet).
    Web 2.0 Is mobile, and most of the world wasn't prepared (many, even now, are still playing catchup).
    Web 3.0 will be all about AR and IoT.. Some are ahead of the curve, but many are not even seeing whats in their face.
    WebX will be VR... it will completely meld the internet with reality even beyond AR... it will create a whole new reality.
    I (want to) believe that we can better prepare for both Web3.0 and WebX by creating Holodeck-like websites. Plus Im just sick and tired of 2D menus....
  • #PathofATrillionaire #Blogumentaries - Documenting my journey on Medium (primarily), Instagram, Twitter, and wherever else through daily blogs. This is where the bulk of my 'free' time will go outside of projects.
  • #ThoughtsofaTrillionaire Podcasts - A sort of corollary of my Path... these are meant to record my thoughts for future reference and hone my speaking skills... as well as help or inspire the rare listener.

Projects You Can Take (granted I would love to be attributed, compensated, or be an advisor):
YouTube for Podcasts - Finally fixing the podcast landscape.

Project HardCORE - The WOW-killer... an educational game.

Project Underground - Empowering minorities with networks.

Player HUB - An AR game/overlay for your whole body/life.

Future Projects (need a certain level of skill, resources, or technology to begin; welcome to building teams now):
Flubbi (Next stage of the WebX project)
#HumansUnify
YouTube Channel
Long-Form Articles (WBW-type but with ideas and diagrams)
Vertiverse
Data Artistry
Epic Xianxia MMORPG
Physics-based super accurate Simulations

Thanks SOOO much for reading all of this! I know this is a weird, totally not Patreon-thing to do... 
I am asking you to help fund my life... not just my creations... and I know that some of you may even find that distasteful... if so, then feel free to ignore this... otherwise, I would like to just connect with you. Maybe we can devise a 'better' way of accomplishing all of these things.

Here are a few of the many pieces I've written and said in regards to my intentions:
