About Total Loser's Guide
Every story has a beginning, and a journey into the future.
I remember reading a quote many years ago, “Do something today that your future self will thank you for.”
I thank my former self every day for the life I live today.
Today I live in Thailand. I retired here at the age of 48. The direct result of actions taken by my 24 year old self a half a lifetime ago.
Retired in Thailand at the ripe old age of 48. Not bad for a Total Loser I would say.
I also have to thank a former co-worker, an old man named Jim. Jim taught me about investing, and building my wealth, instead of spending money foolishly on junk I don’t need that will never grow in value.
I will share with you here on Total Loser's Guide, tidbits of wisdom based on things that I learned after a lifetime of epic mistakes. What better way to learn than to fail miserably?
After a failure brush yourself off, and find the right way to win the game.
Enjoy a Total Loser’s Guidance.
I remember back in elementary school so many years ago we had an assignment to write an auto biography. I was about 11 years old at the time, and didn’t do the assignment. My teacher as well as my parents questioned me of course about why I did not do the assignment.
My response was, “I am 11 years old, What could I have possibly done worth writing about?” Read More on my about page here
I remember by my 40th birthday not much had changed, but by my mid 40’s my viewpoint was completely different. The seemingly random chance encounter I had with a lovely lady from Thailand for just a few hours one evening completely changed the way I look at the world.
She completely changed the direction of my life and my destiny, but that’s another story...
I had a retail job working in a grocery store stocking shelves. I remember deciding to get a job stocking shelves until I could find something better. Now after 27 years of grunt work, I have retired from doing it.
I was the guy that some people looked down their noses at as I was on my knees stocking the bottom shelf, as they were thinking, "What a Total Loser."
Luckily, no thankfully there was a wealthy old man that bagged groceries there who convinced me to put my money into a 401(k) plan when it was offered to us back in 1994. Thanks for my financial freedom you have taught me Jim, wherever you are.
