Episode 079 - Trapped in the system

After spending a career building computer systems in software for organizations all over the globe, and being one of the very early career ‘Systems Analysts’, I know a thing or two about systems. But what the world has turned into today is a far cry from the mission of the systems I built back in the early days. In this episode I want to explore when systems, automation, AI, robotics, etc. goes horribly wrong, and how it can hurt rather than helps humanity and what you can do to be unconstrained by them.

Episode 078 - No more “middle class” for you

Words matter. I hear that a lot. But few people realize that removing words from our conversations matter as well. And one term that I think has run its course is ‘middle class’. In this episode I want to explore what the middle class is, its hey day, its demise and why it is an impediment to anyone looking to live an unconstrained lifestyle. But also what you should be focusing on to thrive in the future.

Myles Wakeham interviewed on Jaded 80s Baby Podcast

In late 2020, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Derek Phifer, located in Spain, and having a talk about life, the universe & everything. Derek's story about moving from the USA to Spain to find opportunities is great, and the perfect compliment to my own tales of traversing the globe in search of opportunities.

Episode 077 - Free at 27 - An interview with Rachel Richards

This is an inspirational episode. I recently had the opportunity to sit down and interview Rachel Richards. At the age of 27, she became financially free after leaving a short lived career in the financial services industry. Her methodology focuses on cashflow generation and smart income, rather than saving millions and investing. She would have told her clients in the financial advisory industry she was in this, but she was not allowed to. So she left, did it herself and now is a best selling author on her story. If you ever thought you were too young or too old to find financial freedom, Rachel's story will prove you wrong.

Episode 076 - Should I buy Bitcoin?

This week no less than 5 people have called me and asked this question... ''Myles, should I buy Bitcoin?''. Well as someone who bought BTC back in 2011 and held it, it has been very good to me. In this episode I'm going to unravel (for the newbies), what Bitcoin and crypto-currency is, why it is important, but also whether I would buy it today.

Episode 075 - Nomadland - The testimonial to Financial Sustainability

In 2020, I started to hear rumors of an upcoming movie about those that choose to live in Vans & RVs in America. I thought it was some documentary. Well I recently had the opportunity to watch Nomadland - the very same movie, after finding out that it had won or been nominated for so many awards, and in this episode I’m going to give you both my review, but also how important seeing this movie is, if you want to do all you can to protect your future and your freedom.

Episode 074 - So you are thinking of starting a business….

In 2020, we saw an unprecedented number of small businesses closing down due to COVID19. As a contrarian, I have to admit that this is an opportunity for those willing to fill that void. And as more of us have had to work from home, shelter in place, etc., more of us have had more time to think freely and with that we probably came up with some brilliant idea that will change the world. So if you are brave enough to want to go once more unto the breach and start a business, I’m going to give you my advice having done that a few times in my life.

Episode 073 - Rethinking the concept of FIRE

Don't get me wrong - I'm ok with the concept of Financial Independence. But it is a means to an end, and if you think the end is ''retirement'', I think you are doing it all wrong. So in this episode I want to deep dive the concept of why we work, what makes us happy and why separating financial security from life goals has to be the methodology that we start with, rather than the one we end with.

Episode 072 - Legal info for Internationalization with Atty Stewart Patton

Today on the show I’m joined by Stewart Patton, attorney at law and the guy behind ustax.bz. Stewart is an expert in the world of internationalization, specifically taxation & compliance for US persons. He gave us an hour of his time to do a deep dive on the advantages and obligations that comes with having an international life, from work, residencies, and how (if you do it right), you can minimize your taxes and have all the nomadic experiences all over the world.

Episode 071 - Choosing the right path for your freedom

This episode is a great summation as to why you probably lack hope for the future. But rather than dwelling on the negative, I’m going to lay out the Why and What you can do to change it. This is an important episode to reset our thinking about our freedom & money in the western world.
