Life of an entrepreneur
I created this website for writing my personal life progress and memories. Please feel free to read. I travel between Toronto (Canada), Iran and Mauritius. Overall the things I like are: dancing, travelling, and building awesome companies.

Going to China
Again at the Reunion Island Airport, waiting for our flight (yes our flight) to China. My wife is with me and this is her second country that she is visiting apart from Mauritius. I am so proud that she is doing this. A lot of Mauritians deserve to travel to China or anywhere else. They just do not have the funds for it while Europeans are blowing up money like there is no tomorrow. However, I have strong feelings that China is going to change me. They must be doing really well in life and everything else. We have booked a 5 star hotel for our first day and from then on we will go to Airbnb places. Have to be economy because I believe there is still a lot of growth left in the economy. I am very stressed though as I thought the stocks would continue to rise until 2019. It could but we had a 10% dip so far and I think it will go down another 5% :) Which is a good thing for me but very bad for the lower class and even upper class. I have been going to the gym and I am making some progress. I am thinking of starting a fitness website just so that I can focus more on my own health and share the journey. AGAIN, China is going to be awesome and I will keep you updated. This Airport (Reunion) is very uncomfortable. It does not have a restaurant and we have been eating chocolate as dinner. I am planning to save around 50$ in the short future so I can buy swimming clothes in China as Aziel forgot to bring it :( This is my strategy to avoid feeling bad towards occasional losses!

Back to Mauritius
Airport, airport, I am getting tired of this whole airport thing. I just want my wife to come to Canada so I can just sit at home and code. Make a non-stoppable business. I am done tweaking my portfolio around. I am pretty confident that 80% of what I am holding is what I am going to hold for the next 20 years. GNT, ETH, LISK. Isn't that a lovely portfolio? I feel like a multimillionaire already :) I am so sure that these will grow into 20 millions for me. Cannot wait to sell out and enjoy my luxury life. I have been living like a student for too long. Sacrifice! But I am sure I will change that very soon as I am getting more confident about my future. I just want to do something of value so I can serve as many people as possible and through this process make as much wealth as possible so I can contribute even more. Mauritius is going to be great! I have already rented a car and a place. All I need is my laptop and drive to the beach and enjoy my beach lifestyle!
January 3, 2018
Another year came to an end. Sitting at my friend's place in Montreal. Thinking of 2018 and I see this year to be the brightest year of mine. Cryptos cyrptos cryptos and CRYPTOS! I now have more exposure to cryptos than my whole entire assets rather than crypto. Blockchain has made me a lot more caring about what I want to accomplish. I am working on some very very long term projects related to transfer of value to third world and developing countries. I see a bright future already! I just have to be careful with what I do. I am at a level that I find myself responsible for my own wealth and others. There is enough wealth and energy around to have this world transformed. I am doing my part but I do not have the technical skills for it. I am trying though. I am planning to go to Mauritius after Montreal. I have exposed myself more to Golem project (GNT). It is the future of computing and I am speculating on a lot of wealth transfer through this project.
December 18, 2017
The next big thing
The year is coming to an end. I am working on a secret project of mine which is related to crypto and virtual reality. I think it will take off. It will at first put some of my moralities at risk but in the future I think it will pay off. So if I ever disappeared I might be in North Korea working on a project that will fight with international money laundry which is going to be great for Mauritius and Canada and lastly Iran. Patience pays off with this crypto thing. The system is designed daily and if you take advantage of it now and figure out the power of this technology you will realize how soon we will all unite against a big cause that protects us as human. Crypto is such a huge huge topic that cannot be discussed right now. Whoever does not get involved is an immoral under-educated person who is so ignorant about what is going to happen in this war we are having. Please please get involved buy one Ethereum and if you can't afford 1, please buy a fraction of it. Where this world is going, we will have no borders and real good people will be separated from the bad and eventually we have to come to the understanding that we are all the same if the system was fair. For now, I am at a war with myself.
December 6, 2017
Close to end of year
I am at work. I am getting a bit tired of my location but I guess that is what every job is like. I decided to drink tea instead of Hot Chocolate for today and damn it is not the same. I like my unhealthy stuff. Some of my friends are cashing out of Cryptos but for some strange reasons I am still adding to my ETH position and I see no end for this. I am a bit sad I did not get into EOS but who cares. Sometimes you cannot have it all. I like ETH better. I think ETH will keep on going up (maybe forever with no stop) that would be really ambitious. But I feel like it is an economy of its own. I am slacking off on my websites and had no progress for a long time now. I should be doing more design than just looking at graphs. Lets see how 2018 is going to form. Aziel (my wife) is coming in Feb or March 2018 hopefully but it could take longer. Once she comes we are planning to explore Canada and show its beauties.

Try and error process
I am sitting at my office. The cheap lifestyle. I am negotiating with TD Bank for an interest rate for my stocks. I am really confused what this gambling game is. Am I on the right track? I feel things are happening too fast too quick. Am I ready to get bigger? But there is a portion of me which is investing and I am getting good vibes off of that portion. I am sure I am doing something wrong and in all its wrongness there is a good mission I have which is to get smarter day by day. Even that mission is not that moral in itself if I think about it at this low vibration. Getting too ahead of your peers financially might not be a very good option because smartness is also wealth. This is why I think I may do something wrong. But at the same time my mission is bigger than myself and I chose this risky path and for that I have to take risks even if I have to work hard for it. After all I am an educated man from Waterloo University. I think getting a very good rate from A BANK in Canada might be a very risky mission. Lets see what rate they offer me. I think I have a lot of advantages over other people but as long as I use it well for a good cause which I believe in, might turn out great. I am being too honest now but this may change depending on the rate I receive in the future. I want to trade in the future a little bit but without emotions toward the small causes I am fighting for. K.E.
November 8, 2017
Sitting at the airport in Toronto. On my way to meet my cousin in Boston in the US. I am very happy that I am meeting him after so long. He is a very bright man and is studying his Phd. I am listening to some good music and the vibe I am getting off US isn't the best I had. People seem a little stuck up. I feel like we have way different visions about life. Last night was a crazy night because I did not sleep enough but had super weird dreams also. I am going to observe and see what I learn from US. I hope it becomes better as I get in the city.
October 29, 2017
End of year goals
Sitting at Timmies. Almost Christmas. I am going crazy over my Cryptocurrency investments. I have a very good feeling towards them. I am working on a website related to stock exchanges. I am thinking of trying to get my passion align with my work and “job”. I have no idea how this can create value but it does piss me off when I see a lot of these capitalists are getting richer for nothing and not adding any value. They might have their own reasons though. But someone who has a lot of capital isn’t doing anything but investing will add no value. Anyone else with a little brain with the same capital could probably do the same or even better. This is what I want to avoid becoming. Though I can make more money doing so but I want to stay an entrepreneur and “change the world :)”.
October 16, 2017
In business you will do mistakes and sometimes you do something right. Sometimes you do something really right. These days I am working on some projects and I feel like I am doing them REALLY right! The competition is really tough out there. But if you got the soul for it you can easily do the right things. I am working on projects globally and I am thinking of sticking to the idea of MAURITIUS! I see a lot of bs businesses in Mauritius that are making money that they don’t deserve. Let’s see how I can grow into that market.
October 2, 2017
Back to work
Sitting in a Timmies close to where my mom lives and I officially started work today. I am learning about Cryptos more and some investing strategies with options. Not sure if it will come handy but just in case and to make me smarter it is needed. I shouldn’t get used to having coffee here or I will add on more fat :( Anyway, I have a comfortable work place now and I think for the next 6-8 months I will come here everyday and get some work done.
September 26, 2017
Coming to Canada!
435 days ago I left Canada with a bag pack and a hope to retire in Mauritius. Today I am going back to Canada with the same bag pack and a marriage certificate realizing nothing is as good as Canada. I learned a lot. Mauritius is poorer than I thought. And by poor I don't mean only money but also poor mindsets. It is a beautiful country that corruption will exist forever within it. Corruption is a part of their culture. And with that no one will ever get ahead. I also learned that money matters. Like a lot. To some people money is food and to some is a new car but my vision about money is freedom. I will come back to Mauritius when I am more mature. I enjoyed my stay :) Now I am sitting at the airport in Mauritius getting ready to go to Dubai which is a favourite. I hope I don’t act Mauritian in Canada. I picked up a lot of the culture here. I am a cheapo now. I am looking at my stocks now and oh god are they going up in a good time. I do not want my stocks to go up anymore nor down. I just want everything to freeze as I collect dividend. Stocks going up is not a good thing when you surpass a certain net worth.
September 7, 2017
Mauritius is over soon!
414 days in Mauritius and counting. This phase of my life is coming to an end and what I have to show for it:
- Got married
- Added 1 million dollar to my assets
- Failed studying Philosophy but I tried
Overall, I did pretty good and I hope this continues. I am aggressively cutting down on taking risks in the stock market and I am planning to become a dividend investor. I think from here on I do not need to take risks like I did for the past year. I am going back to Canada in less than 3 weeks and from here I am planning to become 10X more productive and try to do something for Mauritius (or Africa if I succeed) I started bigdeal.mu and a couple other projects like Mauritius Attractions (attractionsmauritius.com). From now on I have decided to ONLY do what I love to do. I do not want to do it like before to run after money for any possible gig. Anyway, got to shave my beard. Talk soon!

Covered calls mistake
Sitting again in Cafe Lux of Bagatelle. Such a good feeling because this Cafe made me another million dollar. I remember the days that I used to come here every day and analyze graphs and take risks that I shouldn’t have taken if I was normal. Anyway, a big mistake that I did again was selling covered calls on my Apple stock at strike of 175$ for Nov 17, 2017. If stocks go above that level from current level of 158$ I will lose a ton of money :( I promise to myself I would never sell call cover calls but it’s ok I guess I wanted that premium (which was very small by the way). Anyway, I am thinking of a new investing strategy that I am sure will work. I think I do not need to take risks anymore. I can be like that rich dude that just makes money off of the market for no good reason. DIVIDENDS!
July 28, 2017
Last day of being single
Today is the last day I am a single man. I am happy for no good reason tonight. I feel like I have accomplished a lot in Mauritius. I met the coolest entrepreneur on earth. I met this guy who got me into Cryptos. We met again in Bagatelle and discussed a few things. But the experience was such a thing you would see in TV. Anyway, Mauritius was a good place for me. I learned a lot and again understood power of money even more. The importance of having it, keeping it, making it. I realized that I am blessed being a Canadian. There is a huge barrier in Mauritius if you want to get rich. Anyhow, this is the last post of me as a single man. Wish me luck. I am working on some really cool ideas and I will execute them once I go back to Canada.
July 14, 2017
Things went out of hand :)
So tomorrow (today in the morning) I will go to sign papers to get married to the beautiful girl I met in Mauritius. I have been really involved in investing and feel good about my portfolio. Things are looking bright. Anyway, I better go to sleep now. Wish me luck!
June 25, 2017
Something is off when you realize: it is Sunday. You are sitting at the best Cafe of Mauritius at close to closing hour and the only thing you think about is success. The feeling that one day I will come sit at this cafe with my favourite one and explain this feeling that I am so hungry for success that I can work 20 hours a day. I am not even sure if money is the goal anymore. I have a bigger plan and it is to help Mauritius poverty. I see something huge in Mauritius. A huge gap between the races and social classes that can’t easily be solved. Only a monstrous entrepreneur could tackle this problem. I am going to start with small money making strategies because 95% of wealth of Mauritius is distributed among a certain race. How can I solve anything when I am in the 5%? I am going to hustle as hard as I can but I will fail. And that is the fun part. When the problem is too big to even tackle. For now, I am enjoying my pennies :)
June 13, 2017
Sitting at KFC close to my place (about 10 min drive - Mahebourg), and thinking of future goals. I think future is bright. The only downfall I could have is if I make a very bad decision. So far I have got really lucky with my choices. And one right choice has shooted me up in the sky. And it is called CRYPTOCURRENCY. They are going to moon and I am definetly holding on and sitting on the rocket. Anyway, with all seriousness, I suggest everyone to get in. I am enjoying life a lot more with this option. Apart from that, I am working on BigDeal.mu a business made for Mauritius and it is longterm. Today I made an agreement with someone who is going to be involved. Anyway, good things are coming!
May 20, 2017
Main guy is back
So for a while one of my favourite employees was away and now he is back. Things will move a lot faster now that he is coming. I will get time to help him and do other things. Time is the most important thing that God has given us. Any amount of time is valuable. I spend a lot of time on research these days but eventually a day will come that I have to put the experience to work. Mauritius market is very unique and I am sure I can understand it very well very soon. I am hoping to understand it better than the top dogs of Mauritius. Once that’s done, the real Krishna will come to do the real work!
May 11, 2017
I am thinking of starting to seriously becoming productive in life. I had a very productive year last year. But I think it can become better if I focus more. Productivity matters a lot because I noticed in Mauritius basic things get a lot of attention. Whereas for me I like weird things and I find other things to be counted as productive. I’d like to improve my French and learn programming again. I do feel like I can enjoy programming again like my childhood and meantime count it as productive hours.
May 2, 2017
Back to Mauritius
So I am sitting at the airport again. We have 5 more hours to get to Mauritius. This trip was definitely a different one. I enjoyed it a lot but I am for sure ready to go back home! Wherever that is! I would like to know how to speak French at least for a little bit. It would be such an accomplishment if I learn that. But with time I am sure I can speak some French. I noticed that French people definitely do NOT like to speak English. This would be my last post in Reunion at least for years.
April 30, 2017
Reunion Island part 2
We went to a very high-end party at a hotel last night. Apparently, it was the birthday party of the hotel holder. So we had a lot of fun (my girlfriend and I). I would like to keep this balance of lifestyle for life. It feels great when I check-in to a place or an Airbnb place far from home. It feels like home immediately :) We will go back to Mauritius, and will make Mauritius great again!
April 26, 2017
We arrived to Reunion island (I and my gf). I saw a scene that changed my mind. I saw a tree that could not grow bigger than its natural limits, but at the same time the rocks around it were holding it so tight together. I also observed a lot of different beautiful animals by the corner of the ocean that were jumping around rocks and they probably have been there for many many generations and followed basic rules of their own build natural culture. I really do not know but these two changed me as a human being. It was so inspiring to see that scene of that tree that was still growing big. Maybe I am like that tree!
April 23, 2017
Did not have enough time or energy to update the blog but here we go again! I got sick for a bit and now feel better and in a few hours I have my flight to Reunion island with one of the most beautiful girls I know. I might marry her :) Let’s see if we have the same goals or enough reasons to let this go forever. I miss my life in Canada but Mauritius has grown in me so much and I do not think I can easily forget and leave. Because if I go back to Canada I will miss here! Reunion, you are next. Lets go!
March 27, 2017
Working really hard these days. Last night I had 2 hours of sleep but I am sure I am having something meaningful. It will be the greatest of the greatest. There is only one position in the world for the best service and I am working behind the psychology of great service. Wish me luck!
March 9, 2017
Some more progress
I have not been able to update the blog. I have had so many guests in my place recently. None stop actually. I have learned a lot. Most of these guests have been to over 25 countries and some over 50! This makes me a much better person to get to hang out with them and share my time with them. They are mostly awesome people. It is nice to see their point of view about life. Some of them travel with almost no money at all. Almost 0! I want to travel myself but I am for now enjoying Mauritius too much and lets see what this year brings on for me.
Feb 22, 2017
One year older
I had the best 28th birthday a few days ago. I am very excited for this upcoming year. As I am working with some overseas employees to create some next generation technology. I would like to have so many businesses and I am sure one if not all will take off so good that I can grow other businesses out of it. I really want to create some value and I think I can do that through the blockchain and virtual reality. One of these will be my favourite field of investment of time and energy.
Feb 5, 2017
These days I am going crazy over creating new companies. I am working on at least 8 projects at the same time. And every single one of these are ran properly. I am thinking of working on so many projects and find my passion eventually. Mauritius changed me as a person I realized the value of money even more. I want to create value more than ever. THAT IS THE GOAL!
Feb 1, 2017
Wow! I did it!
Apple up 7-8%. Enough said!
Jan 28, 2017
A lot of people wanted the market to crash at least they expected it. I was not skeptical and I really do not think it will crash but one thing I know is that it is at a very expensive price and I am considering to hold on buying more. These days I am really interested in the virtual currency world. I think the next successful niche is digital currency. It is booming. It will change lives very quick. I am pumped about the idea of having no fee transactions world wide and the internet. These two things will change many things very quick. It could change our culture as human. It can make us a lot more human than before. Because fiat currency has separated us not only financially but it has also made us very far from our origin of being one.
Jan 18, 2017
That’s it.. BUAY
Half a year in Mauritius as of now. I came here exactly 182 days and few hours ago. It is crazy! Things moved very fast. I doubled my net worth. I got an amazing girlfriend and worked on some very cool projects so far. I am still hoping to do something for Mauritius even if it has to lose money. I feel like a Mauritian. 6 months does it.
Anyway, I recently have been looking into digital currencies. I think they have a lot of potential to change the world. Some of them to name but again I might be wrong: Ethereum, Bitcoin, Doge, Menoro, Skeem. These are the ones I am looking into. Specially “Ethereum” I think would do very well. I do not quite understand it so well yet but I know I can become really wealthy investing in that. I am going to listen to my heart and go with Ether so later you know why I do not work. Because ether is like working. By investing in it you will make a lot of lives easy. That is at least my understanding. Think about it, imagine if there is no banks anymore and you can send a D (Doge coin) which is .0002 to someone in another continent to do something. I know 1 D won’t get anywhere but remmeber it will grow in value. Basically businesses will compete with each other because now 100 D sounds big! Ethereum sounds super cool! I am not going to go crazy over it but I think I will be a very long term investor of it.
Jan 13, 2017
My mom must be on plane coming to Mauritius right about now. It is 12:09 Mauritius time and she should be here in about 6 hours. My father, my girlfriend and I going to pick her up from airport. It is one of the best days of my life and the first 10 minutes feel like it. This is my first post of 2017. A few things I have made up my mind about: I am not going to sell any stocks. I am not going to but anymore stocks also because I got to pay off my lines of credits :)) in 2016 I invested heavily in Apple and I am not regretting it as I did it in July time. I have a good feeling about this year. I just need to pay my taxes and a couple bills and from then on come up with an investing strategy that won’t be stressful and comfortable. I think I am done, I just need to fill up my margin with Google stock as long as it is under $3000 a share and after that just invest in TD bank and that’s it. My life is complete financially. But the big part is coming up. This is where I start to build meaningful companies and change the world for a better place. Let’s make 2017 the best year EVER!
Dec 31, 2016
Last day of 2016
What a year that was. From the downs to the ups. I am very happy to be spending the last day. It is 12:10 am and I have 23 hours and 50 more minutes of 2016 to decide what to do with life. I really want to become successful :) I am on my way.
Dec 30, 2016
Yesterday I was seriously thinking about buying digital currencies. But they are already really at a high price but I think I would want to take a risk and buy it. How wrong can I go really when they are claiming that they will go even higher. I don’t want to be that guy at 60 year old and my kids say dad why don’t you have money. This might very well happen that real wealth happens in a virtual reality. We are already living in a reality which people did not expect years ago.
Dec 27, 2016
I am not bad
A lot of people think I am a shallow person who only thinks about money. No, Yes, but money does bring a bit of happiness and health. It does give you time to do something else. It does help you do other things that helps others. So yeah I love money. I want to make more of it. I want to use it more. I want to get it and do something amazing with it. We are living in a world where money is a tool. It has different uses. But it has made things very simple. I want to do something for the world before I die. And yeah I want to build wealth and with it make other people happy. I just want to make sure I do not get greedy. I don’t want to be that guy who goes to gym from morning to night. A balance, and money can help me with that balance of life.
Dec 26, 2016
End of year
Chilling by the beach on my laptop. Studied some Philosophy. Today was a big day for me. I went to Grand Bassin with my partner to make a life time decision. The year is coming to an end and things are moving very very fast. I am looking forward to 2017 and I want to really become successful. I have been really enjoying my life for the past 3-4 years and I think it is unfair to keep on that life style. I am not single anymore and that comes with a lot of responsibilities. It is getting dark here (it is actually very dark now). I will go home. I do not know if I mentioned I go to the gym now on daily basis.
Dec 21, 2016
Investing in value
As I am writing this, I have just changed my post. I think I prefer to stay away from making stock picks. I see no value in that but I think one of these tech companies will change us as a human being. It could be Apple, Facebook and Apple again :D
Dec 16, 2016
Beach days are awesome. I’m living a very laid back life currently. It is crazy that I took a risk and I wrote about it on this blog and it worked out. So more beach days for me till I die. I am going with my girlfriend and his brother. They are awesome. I learn a lot from them because there is a 9 year gap between us. But I feel as young as them and I sure do act like them. I am aggressively still investing in the market. I think it is going to fly to moon in 2 years. Specially Apple stock <3 It is the best. See you soon!
Dec 11, 2016
New year is close
2016 surely was a different year. It started pretty depressing. It got better when I went to Cuba and now in Mauritius is perfected after finding the woman of my dreams. I am working on a new company in tourism industry. At the same time I am studying Philosophy. 2017 will be a good year and I can already sense that. As long as I am careful with how I invest my time and money. So far I feel confident about 2017 with Trump being elected I think we are going to have a good solid up in stock market and overall the economy. We will see how things will go.
Dec 6, 2016
In a relationship
So biggest decision in life is your life partner. Today I officially started a relationship with the one I want to have something meaningful with. I am pretty happy about this decision. I am moving to Mahebourg tomorrow and I have signed up for gym. Today Apple did well and I think next year will be a great year for that stock and forever! If Warren Buffet is investing in it, it must be darn good. I am heavily invested in the market now and I am waiting for some security as time passes.
Dec 4, 2016
Ready to hustle again
I am at Lux Cafe again :) Today I am starting to make business plans of my 2017 project. It is a long term project which I will be working on for the rest of my life hopefully. It has to do with tourism industry in Mauritius. I want to get into that niche and hustle. When there is a booming niche you cannot go wrong working hard at it. I am dating my beautiful Mauritian girl and I am so happy about what is happening. Things might very well become serious with her. But again I am just hoping it works out. We will find out in a bit. So today I want to brush up on my programming skills which I have no used for over 5 years. It will be fun to try to re-do it. Because I know my friends my age are worn out of programming and now I can start again after resting myself for a while. Wish me luck!
November 29, 2016
Ready for Christmas
Finally settled with an amazing girl. I have a good feeling this one will work out :) Anyhow, I have invested heavily in stock market as I said I am fully exposed and I am not expecting a market crash. I want to become Warren Buffet of Mauritius. I think the next 8 years will great for stocks and economy. I may be wrong but I am sure good things are happening in the world and we are making some good progress. I invested in some company that invests in other companies, and I think this is the one stock that will get me anywhere if ever I get anywhere in this gambling game!
November 21, 2016
So apparently people’s expectations are really high. I have not updated this blog for more than a week and been working on a lot of projects. I also have started a serious relationship with a beautiful Mauritian girl. I have also have planned my next year to see what I am going to do. I will be in Mauritius and I want to move to my girlfriend’s neighbourhood. It is going to be really good because I am enjoying the weather here. My lifestyle is also very good because I get to work far from home at a place I feel like home. So my plan to learn French has been dropped and I prefer to enjoy life instead and learn some sort of Philosophy. Anyway, I have not had enough sleep for days. Chao.
November 11, 2016
On my way up
I am at Lux once again. Trump has became the president of United States and this is a good sign that stock market will just do fine the next 8 years. I have a great feeling that I can have my money doubled by end of his presidency and I might have a solid business too at that time. These are the critical dates of my life and I do not want to mess it up. I want to build a business that is my passion and I want to do it for fun. If it makes money then great but if it doesn’t I will keep building stuff and hope that one day it will become profitable but that is how most successful people have made it. The probability is low but if I make it happen then I will be top notch. I have no doubt that one day I will be financially very comfortable and I can do the things in life that I always wanted.
November 4, 2016
Back to Mauritius!
I am in Dubai Airport and watching airplanes fly by and I have a good feeling that I will make it happen eventually in life. I am confident that I will make success, I will build a good company and I have no doubt. It is just the matter of how much success it will have. Anyway wish me luck. I will be back in Africa in about 16 hours.
November 3, 2016
End of Iran trip
Another end is coming. That was very fast. 40 days of Iran. The trip was MUR > Tehran > Yazd > Shiraz > Kish > Bandar Abbas > Yazd > Shiraz > Yazd > Tehran. I met over 20 friends and dated over 5 girls. Talked to 8 business partners and I am thinking about 2 business ideas and will choose one to work on. This trip made me a lot smarter and I definitely enjoyed Iranian people and the culture. Iran has improved so much. I did some mistakes but overall the trip was worth it.

I am in Yazd’s Airport and have some time to think about life. Last night my cousin got into an accident because he was practising to drive. It was a very sad night but again when I did the math the amount lost was very small and I think it was a good lesson but again things happen. I am going to Tehran for one last time to spend time with friends and in less than 4 days I am flying back to Mauritius where I am getting serious about life. Though it is serious already but I think I have a good future in Mauritius.

I came to the cemetery and sat down by my dead friend who died about 14 years ago. He has been here in this graveyard for 14 years and years has gone by and every time I feel sad I automatically remember him and it calms me down a little bit. Now I am updating my blog by him and I promised to come back for him again. Death is a very strange thing. It is a gift from God to die. Imagine if we lived so long it would not be so fun. But the fact that you know you die is very good. Things will get better very soon. Worst is death!

Who you become
Long time I have not updated this blog but I did take a lot of pictures of my life progress in Iran. I am really impressed by how things are going. Iran has made a lot of improvements. Last time I was here 4 years ago I realized that culture has improved but this time it has gotten so much better! I am spending one more week here in Iran and I think I have enjoyed the trip already. It was more than enjoyable to see my old friend and teachers. To realize how the world is progressing outside North America and how people think overseas. I love the person I am becoming everyday. I think I am on the right track! Let’s create a better world…

I have noticed life is only beautiful when you have some control over your future but not full control. When you know the exact outcome, things are a bit hard because your expectations are set. However, when you know you are going to do well but it is the matter of how well you will do is when you will do great in life. I have noticed when I do some secure work or investment or anything secure it is not fun. But when I do something that goes with the flow and it might have an amazing outcome that I wouldn’t know then things are a bit different and fun!

At times it is not about how confident you are in yourself. It is about the system. Does not matter how hard you try, you will most of the time depend on the system. For example, a trader’s result will depend on the market. It is true that some traders do not care about how the market does but most traders and investors rely on the market going up. Apple and Google are doing great and I think these two are investments that everybody needs to own.
October 16, 2016
I am in Bandar Abbas, and I met one of my old friends who got to know me in High School. I met so many cool people. Travelling is great because you get to see people from a different perspective. I really want to keep travelling but again it will consume a lot of your time. I have not been able to go to the gym for a long time and I want to go :( I have another 20 days in Iran and my plans changed a lot because things did not go well with a situation I expected. However, it was a meaningful trip already and I have no doubt I will gain a lot more as time passes.
October 13, 2016
Today was my last day in Kish, Iran. The best island life is experienced at this place. I was blessed to have a family friend to have an amazing time here. The ultimate life of Iranians are lived here at Kish and the ones who make it further go overseas to enjoy a better life. I noticed everyone wants to get out of Iran and go abroad. It is like a dream to them. I will go to Shiraz again tomorrow to enjoy the rest of my trip and will go to Perspolis the ancient city of Iran.
October 10, 2016
To me the best times of my life is when I am on road and with friends. You look at your stocks and your main pick is up 2%. That is just crazy and happened to me yesterday. Well, there is another 20 days or so to the election. It seems good so far. It feels like people already know what they are getting themselves into!
September 29, 2016
I am working very hard toward living with freedom. Everyday that passes I am seeing myself to become a more free person than yesterday. By freedom I mean to have the ability to do what I love for the rest of my life. I am not really free at this stage. But I am working hard. Right now I am preparing myself to go to Yazd from Tehran and I am waiting for my bus to arrive. I had so much fun in Tehran and I am able to see how much of a fun trip this one would be!
September 28, 2016
Today, I am seeing my favourite girl. The girl who made me a different person. I am not sure if things will work out, but I am sure about one thing that I would like to meet her at least one more time. This is such an awkward moment. I have not met her for 5 years. I will be with her in 20 minutes and I bought a flower for her. It is a good day!
September 24, 2016
These are very crucial months of my life. If things go well until December I will know for sure if I can live like a retired person or not. It could really go bad at the same time! But we will find out in a few months. I am spending my last hours of being in Mauritius at Cafe Lux where I worked a lot and made a lot of money. Let’s hope I do not lose it in IRAN :)
September 23, 2016
I am spending my last day in Mauritius. I just updated my Mac to the Sierra OS and I can now talk to my Mac! Like talking to my iPhone was not enough! Well, Mauritius taught me a thing or two and now I am just waiting to go to Iran. These months are the final most important months of my life as I am making a lot of important decisions!

Out of Rat Race
Does not matter if you have a 7 figure income. Does not matter How much you got in the bank. The only thing that matters is that do you have the strength to quit your job today and live luxury and do what YOU LOVE for the rest of your life or not and can you maintain it? A lot of people brag about how much they make but if you are not LOVING what you are doing to me that money is not earned. Life is given to us as a gift to do what we love to do with it. I am not saying to quit your job and start travelling, no! But aim for it, on the side plan to do something that gets you financially free, either it is investing or your own business. But do it! The feeling that you are even trying for it makes your life so different. If we were given 1000 years to live instead of 100 years. Only those who do what they love will continue being strong. The rest will burn out by year 200. Even 100 years is long enough. The system is designed to send us to school and if you are not a good student like me, you will hate your life for many years. I noticed only when I start trying to have my own business was the time that I started enjoying life.
September 20, 2016
I am just planning my future now at Lux Cafe in Bagatelle. I am planning to start an investment firm in Mauritius soon. Maybe not a firm but more like a fund. Or I may consider going only with tech business. I really want to do something amazing before I die. I want my children to carry the name of “Eydat” with a pride. I really have a good feeling about becoming and trying toward becoming someone who creates value! I know there are many people with a lot of talents that with a bit of fund could do something amazing. I am all for that kind of service. I will show you how great I am :)
September 13, 2016
I am hiking right now in Mauritius. My Apple stock got a huge hit the past week but have been up 3% in two days which makes it great again. I am planning to go to Iran now to see my friends and a potential lover of mine. If things go well I might be spending the last months of being single. I want to stay single for a long time if this does not work out but we will see how it goes!
September 12, 2016
The more risk you take the more stress you will have. Stress is a part of business and the more stress you have there is a cool feeling that comes along with it when you are managing it properly and it is the reward of excitment. When you are taking too much calculated risk and the reward is calculated, there is a lot of excitement that can follow this. I personally never thought investing this aggressively is this rewarding. I would have never done this in 1000 years. But it is worth it as I am in a situation for the last time to take this amount of risk. Later I will be married and cannot ever take risks like this ever again! So I am really excited these days because I am taking risk that I cannot afford if I was in a sane mind.
September 9, 2016
Today I got my Mauritian passport. And that makes me the first and only Mauritian man on earth that holds Iranian and Canadian passports too. The chances of someone getting this combo of passports is really slim. Maybe my kids will have it too. But I am very excited for this because it will allow me to stay in Mauritius as long as I want. And I am extending my stay all the way to next September unless things get really ugly here. For now I am happy investing until November and after I will start a business of my own again as it is my passion. These days I work at Bagatelle Lux Cafe which is awesome and the rest I am at the beach or with friends! Life’s good.
September 1, 2016
I believe in risking in life. Not too much but to a point where it is worth living. When you do not take risks life is boring and it is not that exciting. But when you take risks the rewards could be great and at the same time you can lead a very exciting life.
I have decided to take a huge risk and bet on the fact that the market will not crash so if I am wrong then I am wrong and things are not as pretty as it looks now. But I have a strong feeling that human have grown and markets will not crash. It might go down but shall not crash!
August 22, 2016
I have noticed when I do something I like I perform way better in life than when I am doing something I do not like. Today I think I may make a huge turn over in my life and cut a lot of things that I do not like doing. I used to be interested a lot in them but as time passes I realized I am interested in other things. Wish me luck!
August 18, 2016
So I have decided to invest in the market with my dividends monthly and invest about 1.5% extra every month as my portfolio gets bigger. I am collecting some good dividend and I have no idea why I have no been doing this for longer. I am taking a lot of risk at the same time but I am sure it will work out ok if I do it consistently.
August 15, 2016
I am heavily invested in APPLE now! I honestly could not wait for November. I think Apple will do great no matter what. I can vision a day that this stock is going to the moon and I am coming to read these notes and tell myself “oh gosh what a smart move”. Enough said, please invest in Apple if you got money. The second rule I have is this, reinvest the dividends and the last rule: NEVER SELL A GOOD STOCK!
August 8, 2016
This is almost my third week in Mauritius. Time is flying. I have had some business ideas that I wanted to execute but none of them seem decent. The first one was a car rental business. But I think I should stick to my tech business but the market seems really tough now. It is really difficult to make money though I should not say that according to the secret rules :) Anyway I am still hoping lots of good things to happen in my life. Soon I might bring my best co-worker to Mauritius and see if we can do something.
August 5, 2016
Life is all about how happy you are. Since I moved to Mauritius I feel a lot happier than before. I am doing a lot more fun things in life and I am more active. I experienced Nirvana about two years ago, maybe something very similar but I am becoming happier and happier these days. I maybe wrong but we will find out soon. This year is a very critical year for me as I am making a pivot in my life and I am trying to find my passion. I really want to do what I love even if I go wrong by taking this risk. I can always fix it down the road. But that’s another thing to worry about.
August 3, 2016
Bought a car in Mauritius
Today after running all around the town to buy a motorbike, I ended up buying a car. I bought an older Nissan car for my stay here in Mauritius. I might regret buying it but if I stay here long enough then having a car is a good option for me.
July 31, 2016
10 million by 30
So I have been in Mauritius about a week now. It is a wonderful place and I am learning a lot. I invested a little more money into Apple and it is already at a very high price.
But we will find out if it was a good investment in a year. I truly believe in their products and I am in love with them. So even if I am wrong I will not be very upset as that is a decision of my life to love Apple products. Google is also a very good looking investment but since they are not paying dividend I cannot invest in them. I NEED quarterly income to invest in a company. I maybe wrong though, but I have this firm rule in investing and I really do not want to break it. Google is a different kind of investment, it is a company that you can hold for life. It is basically the internet, but I wish they paid dividend.
I also have to start eating less since I stopped going to the gym. It is really easy to put a lot of weight :(
July 30, 2016
I have mentioned this many times. But very small decisions early in life are considered big decisions in future time. The same way that small money in the past will worth a lot more investing it for the future.
I am really stressed as I have to make some serious decisions these days. Wish me luck!
July 28, 2016
Finally in Mauritius
So I am now in Mauritius and I am having lots of fun. I have got my car and internet set up and I do not need anything else to enjoy a decent life.
People are friendly here and very educated. I am going to start working hard too to see if I can get my business growing here.
July 23, 2016
After 35 hours of transit I arrived to Mauritius with my dad today. Things are really different here. But I do feel a little better than when I was in Dubai yesterday.
I got my phone and internet going and I got 50 Gb of data which is more than I need, it is also very fast so I thing my productivity would be the same as Canada if not better here. Anyway, got a lot to do. I will talk later.
July 19, 2016
So here we go, the day before going to Mauritius I went all in Google stock and some HSBC. Seems like amazing opportunity. I may be wrong and things will not be good. I am basically betting that the markets won’t crash. I really had a feeling that markets will crash. But I am just not patient enough. At the same time not being exposed to market have always caused me great loss. So lets see how things work out. Today is my last day in Canada and I am going away for at least a year. It is going to be a very interesting year.
I am so serious about Mauritius that I even cancelled my phone service.
July 16, 2016
Life is really marginal as I explained. Any mistake could take you to ground. And one the good side, one right movement could change your life in a way that you will always appreciate that right movement.
These choices come in life many times. One pick of right stock or the right job could be that one thing that you need to live a fantastic life. And one pick in the wrong stock or a bad job could cause you to suffer for a very long time.
I have come up with this strategy of my own which seems to work very well for me in stocks. I can easily have a higher return than the market using this strategy. It only consumes your time a couple hours per month and you could easily yield 2-3% extra guaranteed over the market. However this works only for accounts less than 2 million dollars. Over that this strategy will not work.
July 14, 2016
Only 5 more days in Canada and I am off to Mauritius where I think I am making a huge pivot in my life. These days I enjoy sleeping and going to gym a lot.
Those two are the main activities in my life right now, apart my daily ice cream that I get from McDonalds (got to cut on that soon). Stock market is definitely moving in the right direction. I should have not sold on Brexit on the small dip that we had. I kept most of my stocks.
July 10, 2016
When I wake up I automatically know if that day is going to be a good day or an average day or just a very bad day.
Sometimes I wake up and I feel divine. I feel one with everything around me. And sometimes I wake up feeling a little separate from the world. Today I woke up early and went to McDonalds and got myself a Pancake. This used to happen often but recently I wake up a little later. Today I woke up at 8 feeling divide and got myself coffee after a long time. It felt great. I am in Canada 10 more days and I am looking forward to some major change in my life.
July 8, 2016
Today I thought to myself every time I stayed out of the stock market and waited and waited I always lost. It is my very bad Psychology skills that gets in the way. Every time the stock goes down in a few days I sell out and come out. It has been multiple occasions specially recently that I sold on the lowest day and as soon as I sold the stock went up very quick.
However, the fear has saved me a lot in losses too. If I didn’t take money out I would have lost a lot in oil stocks last year. Anyway I think I am breaking even in this strategy. But on Monday, I am planning to start buying stocks on margin and take some risk before going to US elections. I do not think the market could crash anything like 2008. So why not go in now.
July 5, 2016
If at an older age you do one little mistake it could cost you your whole life. This life is really marginal. There is so little margin for error. I am not saying you should not take risks. Actually not taking risks is what is risky. Because you could become so much more successful risking.
But there is little place for mistakes.
July 4, 2016
I follow the stock market almost everyday. It blows my mind to see some of the stocks grow 8 to 10 times in less than 10 years. If you use margin to buy some of these stocks that grow so fast and get lucky you can retire sooner than you think.
I am heavily invested in Apple right now and I feel it is one of the stocks that will grow 4-5 times soon enough. I may be wrong and it might tank like Blackberry or other tech companies. But Apple is far from crashing at this point.
July 3, 2016
I am leading a very stressful life. I have taken the risk of not working for a corporate and going with hopes of creating my own company.
I have had success on multiple occasions building a company on my own but it just seems that it has gotten more difficult these days. I am not sure is it because of the way how the market is not moving or is it that I am just getting older.
I get really stressed out some days like today about my future. I sometimes even think about going to get a regular 9-5 job and destroying my dreams. It is less of a risk but I will have a decent secure life. When you are funding your own company and not having a job you could burn through a lot of savings very fast specially if you travel like me. As the market slows I might have to cut on some of my spendings.
July 2, 2016
I talked to a guy today at the gym who owned a few condos and stocks. I thought condo business is over in Toronto and the prices are going down. But I think he changed my perspective. There is still a lot of room for them to grow. There is less maintenance than house for condos.
I am going to Mauritius in 17 days and I am super excited for the risk I am taking to transfer my business. If things go wrong that would really hit me hard because I am at my prime age in my life. Lets see how things go.
June 30, 2016
There are days that I wake up and I feel like my life could not be better. But there is always room for improvement. But I have made a lot of bad decisions at the same time some of my decisions were really good, specially the ones I made in 2011 and 2012. Since then my decisions were not as good and it is getting me worried.
One wrong decision at this stage could cause a lifetime mistake that cannot be fixed. I have noticed that if markets crash and I make one small bad decision when it is really low I could lose everything. Lets not be that pessimistic, on the good side one right decision could double or triple my net worth at recession times.
June 29, 2016
I have been the worst trader in the past few months. Basically whenever the market is moving up I am buying and when it is down I sell. I am doing exactly the opposite of my own trading rules.
But it is not easy when you are in the situation. After Brexit I sold a bunch of my stocks and now two days after they are all back up again. This sucks!
I am 80% sure that the market will go down until after US election. If I am wrong then that would suck even more because I am ready to buy more stocks at a cheaper imaginary price.
June 28, 2016
So I thought the markets will start a free fall very soon. Yesterday I sold all the stocks that I had on margin. But today stocks went up. I am definitely not a lucky one.
But I am sure markets will react badly to the US election, I might be wrong again and that would really suck. Yesterday I met a couple of investors and got some really good advice on stocks. However I think the best investment is investing in your own company. You will make a LOT more money in your own company if you know what to do. That is what I am planning to do.
June 27, 2016
After Brexit (United Kingdom getting out of the EU) the markets have been responding very badly. US election is not helping either. I sold whatever I was owning on margin in stocks.
The risk was too much. Looking at every US election the market has had a dip. I may be wrong but the logical thing to do was to sell some of my stocks and hold the cash until (hopefully) the stock goes down. If it goes to half price it would be amazing and fun!
In 2008 a lot of people lost a lot of money, some even lost all they had gained for decades. It was a brutal year to own some American banks. At this point I can relax and just enjoy the market since I am not at risk anymore.
June 25, 2016
Today I saw an old friend of mine. Time flies. Life is a precious gift, it is very short also. There is really small margins for error. Some small mistakes and errors are ok, but bigger mistakes can be fatal and life long regrets and impossible to recover.
I was thinking to myself what is it that I am really looking for in life. Few years ago it was a nice car and a house and family life. Today though I would say it has changed a lot. I looked even more into the future. What is it that I want after having it all.
June 24, 2016
Finally the day that I thought would come has come. The markets were down today by a lot. My Google shares dropped by 4.5% today. I KNEW IT! That is crazy how I was even ready for a day like this. I expect the market to go even further down but that would really scare me. If the market drops another 5% I am totally getting out of market till after US election.
Anyway, lets see how things work out.
June 23, 2016
Seeing rich people
So I was browsing Youtube and I see a lot of rich people in other countries. That is crazy how rich some of these people are. For example people in Dubai. What we call luxury here, they see it as regular living.
I wonder how they made their money. I believe most of them have inherited their wealth.
I see a lot of Lamborghinis in Dubai. For owning that car in Canada you have to work all your life and save up everything to just own that car.
Even if you have an engineering car you will need 10 years of hard work and saving everything to own such a car. This is why I wonder what is it that they do.
June 22, 2016
So if you do not know, I am bipolar. That means that I have moments that I feel very high and motivated and I could feel depressed and hopeless the next day. This is something that has helped me through life and success so far.
I have noticed that when I am very high I start a project and leave it on my low days but overall I will get back to it and get done projects that a normal person would never do.
My friend is flying to Iran today and I am kind of jealous. I am still unsure where I want to build my next start-up. It is definitely not Canada. It will be Iran or Mauritius. I will find out in a couple months.
June 20, 2016
When it comes to a down-market, your best friends are your fear and patience. I have learned this in different times. Right now the market does not seem to want to go up. The presidential election is around the corner. The past few elections have shown that the market WILL go down. The uncertainty is very well shown looking at the past graphs.
I am thinking of instead of selling and waiting for the market to go down, I should do covered calls with options. This way I collect a premium doing that and I am not getting out of the market which is a very difficult thing for me to do. So covered calls it is.
June 19, 2016
Once you have over 500K in savings or investment, life is a lot easier. The reason for that is that if you have that amount of money invested in a strong stock that you can hold for life and gives you a return of 8-10% a year and use a bit of margin for it then you can have salary of a regular engineer every month. From there you can invest into the same stock or different stocks. My strategy is similar, I have my base stocks and whatever I get in gains or dividends from my base stocks I invest in other high dividend stocks. If you follow this strategy after 10 years you will be really really rich!
June 18, 2016
So looking at the history every 8 years around this time, right before the presidential election, there is a market crash. If I am right then it will be difficult for me. Because I am not selling any of my stocks and I am very exposed to the market as of now. I get tempted to sell some of my stocks and re-buy when time comes (which is sometime in December 2016) but it is a very difficult act. I want to be exposed to the market all the time.
June 17, 2016
If there is anything I learned in the past 5 years trading stocks, it is not to sell. Basically what makes a successful investor is an investor who chooses stocks that s/he going to hold for a long time.
I have also decided to follow my own rule and invest in dividend paying stocks that I am going to hold forever. TD and RBC are two of them that I am holding forever. ENB is another that I am looking into. Apple also is a stock that I am going to hold for a very very long time if not forever. I might convert my Google stocks to Apple or vice versa sometime!
June 16, 2016
Living the dream
When I think about it I have achieved 80% of my dreams. The rest of my dreams are basically just higher numbers and bigger scales of what I have now.
The bigger dream is to increase revenue of my current companies and opening another successful company. When I have a lot of money opening a charity company doesn’t hurt either :)
I have started a strategy called ”Ten-a-month” I am planning to invest 10K every month to add to my portfolio aside re-investing into my own business so that I have more than one leg if anything happens to either.
June 15, 2016
I plan my life over and over with different scenarios everyday. I even have chosen my 6 kids names :)
My company Kerixa is working on a bunch of Facebook games and we are hoping to have a lot of success. Two of our apps have build very good user base and we are using that to improve on other apps.
Also our websites are doing well and at the same time we are launching new websites every month.
If we continue with the same speed we will have our 100th website in 3-4 years.
That would be awesome!
June 14, 2016
Coping with stress
Everybody has a way to cope with stress. For me I write here or sleep or watch Youtube. My stress is not that I am not going to be become successful. It is more like I am worried that I do not enjoy the ride of the next industry change or the current opportunity that I hear success of many people everyday who took advantage of an opportunity.
June 13, 2016
Ah this morning I was pretty stressed out and woke up because it is the special day for Apple and it is WWDC. The shares only dropped by less than 2%. I thought today there will be a big movement in Apple but 2% down is not that bad.
Other than Apple, I am holding GOOGL and some Canadian banks in my portfolio. I know, it is not very diversified but I believed highly in Apple and Google. I would only diversify if I had ten times more money than what I have now. But diversification is also a risky act. The other two are TD and RBC bank. These 4 stocks I really know about them. If I invest in anything else, I am investing in a company that I am unsure of their future. These four are what I am going to hold forever, unless an opportunity comes to invest in my own company.
June 12, 2016
First things first
The first thing I do when I wake up most days is to check to see yesterday’s profit. And when I see a up trend for the past month I get really excited
Today was one of those days where continually I have doubled the profit on one of my new apps in the past few days. I wonder how much this bigger guys make on Facebook with hundreds of millions of users.
The smartest thing that comes to my mind and I have been using this strategy for a few years is to create lots of apps and hope to have a lot of users on each one of them.This way the company is more secured and there is more to do. And one day, maybe one day, one of those apps that you just hoped to make a few dollars for you turns to hundreds of dollars a day. This has happened twice for me.
Right now I making my money on two platforms, Google and Facebook. I am not sure how scalable my business is. Does it mean if I continue to make thousands of apps and websites I could proportionally make more money. That is my business model for now!
June 11, 2016
Moving to Mauritius
I bought my tickets to Mauritius and I am moving for about one year. The date is set for July 20, 2016 and one of my favourite co-workers is moving with me. If things go well I might have my company moved to there and boom!
I am also very excited for my Apple stocks that I have purchased about a month ago. I think it will go up!
June 10, 2016
Create a company
I personally believe that everyone should create a company before they die. The feeling of waking up in the morning and thinking that your company is growing is just priceless. The feeling of having a passive income is more than priceless.
My dream is to open a company that its main branch is in Mauritius and another in Toronto. An international company that works on games and websites or something tech related. I want to create something with value and pay back in my way. There is still a lot of room in the industry for start ups in tech.
And I definitely think that something big is going to come. Something that will change the way we do things in this era. I am getting ready to be a part of that movement.
June 9, 2016
I woke up and finished up this website. I made it quickly as this is mostly my personal notes written online. I hope you enjoy it.
