Club Epstein

The main source for the following article is James Altucher, a reputable author, blogger, genius, and Wall Street investor. 

By answering a quora question, James Altucher demystified the Jeffrey Epstein's source of wealth.

It seem that Jeffrey Epstein wasn't an hedge fund manager / money manager at all. There is absolutely zero evidence that he operated as such.

In reality, Jeffrey Epstein was a satyriasis (the masculine of nymphomaniac) and had the money to treat himself 3 times a day with young girls and he turned it into an industry. Just like I did with my porn websites!

"Hedge Fund"

The "hedge fund" was just a story so people could explain why they were wiring him Money. Epstein also created dozens of shell companies to mask his elaborate sex ring.

"Philanthropy meetings"

For decades, Epstein hung out with Presidents, country leaders, royalty, Billionaires, financiers, philanthropists, Nobel Prize winners, top scientists, A-list celebrities, etc. These relationships were tradable commodities for him. Through Epstein you had the opportunity to met members of the global elite. So it was a reasonable excuse to visit him on his private island.

Security and privacy

The protection from government (through his massive connections and philanthropy presence).

P.S. (Not so private and secure because it seem that all the dignitaries who were serviced by young gals were recorded. Oups!)

Young girls

Jeffrey Epstein's actual business was as a concierge for the wealthy and private. He secured companionship, threw exclusive parties, arranged for private and discreet meetings with young pretty girls.

He ran a very exclusive social club. One with the largest private residence in New York City, a private island in the Bahamas, private jets with discreet crews, fast boats etc. His real talent though was finding young pretty girls/women - about half were gold diggers in their younger 20s - that where treated and used as luxury goods. Indeed they are. 

Club Epstein

Club Epstein.

Little Saint James is a private island of the United States Virgin Islands, off the coast of St. Thomas. 
  • In 2019, the island was valued at $63,874,223. 
  • Had a discreet 70 staff. 
  • The area covered by the island is 70–78 acres (28–32 ha) or if you prefer 0.28–0.32 square km (0.11–0.12 sq mi).
Was owned by Jeffrey Epstein as his primary residence from 1998 until his 2019 death and he called the island "Little St. Jeff". Through the years, the island acquired several nicknames as "Island of Sin", "Pedophile Island", "Pedo Island", "Paedo Island", "Orgy Island", and the "Isle of Babes".

 A large bed installed on the jet where guests had group sex with young girls

"Lolita Express" Boeing 727-200 private jet. 

  • A three-engine commercial jet with a capacity of nearly 200 passengers, but tailored into a luxury 29-passenger with dual-cabin privacy.
  • Logged 600 hours of fly time a year.
  • "Lolita Express" was part of his $80 Million fleet of aircraft.
  • Had padded floors for mid-flight wild orgies.

Manhattan mansion. 
  • Valued at somewhere between $55 to $77 Million. 
  • Seven-story, 21,000-square-foot Upper East Side home near Central Park. 

Socialite and ex-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell was his recruiter.

In resume,

He set up the island, the procurement of young girls, the facade of respectability, the protection from government (through his massive connections and philanthropy presence). Then you can do whatever the fuck you want on the island.

Then he probably pitched rich foreign billionaires (sheikhs, dictators, etc) and said, “if you put money in my fund, you can have access to my island, and by the way, lots of young girls on my island and it’s all VERY SECURE AND PRIVATE”.

THAT was his product.

That is obviously not an easy product to build. And it’s a product that was apparently in demand by at least a few wealthy, or connected, and corrupt billionaires, royalty, world leaders, etc.

He sold it to all takers.

Let’s say “membership” in Club Epstein was $20 Million.

Every single dictator in the world can afford that. Almost every single royal person in the world can afford that.

Various foreign corrupt businessmen can afford that without thinking of it.

30 members and Epstein has $600 Million.

That’s how he made his Money.

Two days before Jeffrey Epstein his suicide he signed a will where he disclosed his assets.

  • $56 million in cash
  • $113 million in equities
  • $14 million in bonds
  • $195 million invested with hedge funds
  • $178 million combined value of six properties

When Jeffrey totaled his entire net worth up, he estimated it to be worth exactly $577,672,654.

Although, that number could be higher because it does not include assets put into a trust which are not made public. Technically not a Billionaire but just like one. As Mr. Altrucher stated, anyone with $100 Million or more can live like a Billionaire.

Which made Jeffrey Epstein the Richest Pimp Of All Time. And I'm pretty sure he never wore a colorful suit, a big hat, a shitload of jewelry nor made it to the Players Ball.
Pimping ain't easy, but its necessary - Abraham Lincoln

A lot of Epstein's Billionaire "friends" were surely relieved by the death of their disgraced "wingman" and the burrial of his secrets.

Great Gatsby net worth

Gatsby net worth: $1 Billion

Great Gatsby would only be worth $1.25 Million in 1922.
Which would only make $18.57 Million in 2020's Money. 
Far from the Billion dollar claimed above.

I don't know if you watched the movie, but the Great Gatsby was literally flushing money down the toilet on a weekly basis throwing lavish parties for sycophants he didn't even know. All in the hope to catch the attention of Daisy, the love of his life he lost five years ago.

The prohibition being already over in the movie. As a former bootlegger, Gatsby probably struggled to keep his lifestyle with diminishing revenues.

Jeff Bezos the first official CentiBillionaire & Amazon 14 Principles of Success

Jeff Bezos the first official CentiBillionaire.
Jeff Bezos the first official CentiBillionaire

As you may know Amazon Jeff Bezos officially became the first Centi-Billionaire with a $130.5 Billion net worth.

Right now, Jeff Bezos is making $231,000 a minute, $10 Billion a month.

As mentioned on Wikipedia, 

  • On July 27, 2017, Jeff Bezos briefly became the world's wealthiest person when he accumulated an estimated net worth of just over $90 Billion. 
  • On November 24, 2017, Jeff Bezos' wealth surpassed $100 Billion for the first time after Amazon's share price increased by more than 2.5%. 
  • On March 6, 2018, Jeff Bezos was formally designated the wealthiest person in the world with a registered net worth of $112 Billion by Forbes, becoming the first Centi-Billionaire.
  • As of March 14, 2018, Jeff Bezos has an estimated net worth of $130.5 Billion, and is contended to be on track to become the wealthiest person in contemporary history.


Here below are the 14 Principles of taken directly from the Amazon website.
Read attentively since these 14 Principles are a Blueprint to $ucce$$. 14 Principles of success

Our Leadership Principles

Our Leadership Principles aren't just a pretty inspirational wall hanging. These Principles work hard, just like we do. Amazonians use them, every day, whether they're discussing ideas for new projects, deciding on the best solution for a customer's problem, or interviewing candidates. It's just one of the things that makes Amazon peculiar.
  • Customer Obsession
  • Leaders start with the customer and work backwards. They work vigorously to earn and keep customer trust. Although leaders pay attention to competitors, they obsess over customers.
  • Ownership
  • Leaders are owners. They think long term and don't sacrifice long-term value for short-term results. They act on behalf of the entire company, beyond just their own team. They never say "that's not my job."
  • Invent and Simplify
  • Leaders expect and require innovation and invention from their teams and always find ways to simplify. They are externally aware, look for new ideas from everywhere, and are not limited by "not invented here." As we do new things, we accept that we may be misunderstood for long periods of time.
  • Are Right, A Lot
  • Leaders are right a lot. They have strong business judgment and good instincts. They seek diverse perspectives and work to disconfirm their beliefs.
  • Hire and Develop the Best
  • Leaders raise the performance bar with every hire and promotion. They recognize exceptional talent, and willingly move them throughout the organization. Leaders develop leaders and take seriously their role in coaching others. We work on behalf of our people to invent mechanisms for development like Career Choice.
  • Insist on the Highest Standards
  • Leaders have relentlessly high standards—many people may think these standards are unreasonably high. Leaders are continually raising the bar and driving their teams to deliver high-quality products, services, and processes. Leaders ensure that defects do not get sent down the line and that problems are fixed so they stay fixed.
  • Think Big
  • Thinking small is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Leaders create and communicate a bold direction that inspires results. They think differently and look around corners for ways to serve customers.
  • Bias for Action
  • Speed matters in business. Many decisions and actions are reversible and do not need extensive study. We value calculated risk taking.
  • Frugality
  • Accomplish more with less. Constraints breed resourcefulness, self-sufficiency and invention. There are no extra points for growing headcount, budget size, or fixed expense.
  • Learn and Be Curious
  • Leaders are never done learning and always seek to improve themselves. They are curious about new possibilities and act to explore them.
  • Earn Trust
  • Leaders listen attentively, speak candidly, and treat others respectfully. They are vocally self-critical, even when doing so is awkward or embarrassing. Leaders do not believe their or their team’s body odor smells of perfume. They benchmark themselves and their teams against the best.
  • Dive Deep
  • Leaders operate at all levels, stay connected to the details, audit frequently, and are skeptical when metrics and anecdote differ. No task is beneath them.
  • Have Backbone; Disagree and Commit
  • Leaders are obligated to respectfully challenge decisions when they disagree, even when doing so is uncomfortable or exhausting. Leaders have conviction and are tenacious. They do not compromise for the sake of social cohesion. Once a decision is determined, they commit wholly.
  • Deliver Results
  • Leaders focus on the key inputs for their business and deliver them with the right quality and in a timely fashion. Despite setbacks, they rise to the occasion and never settle.

    Customer obsession may be the most important of this bunch. In practice, it translates, as Bezos noted in a recent conference appearance, to three elements: 
    • low prices, 
    • convenient shipping, 
    • and unlimited selection.

    Kim Jong Un, Richest Person Alive!

    Who is the richest person alive right now?

    My vote goes to Kim Jong Un
    This guy has full control of his country which has vasts amounts of natural resources iron, gold, magnesite, zinc, copper, limestone, molybdenum, graphite and rare earth minerals. It is estimate that the value of this is about $6 trillion dollars (source:North Korea is sitting on trillions of dollars of untapped wealth, and its neighbors want in)
    Not to mention he now has a few of these:
    And a bunch of these:
    So I don’t think Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Carlos Slim and Jeff Bezos can hold a candle to Kim Jong Un even though he is not on the Forbes list.
    For the commentary on him not owning a yacht, who needs one when you have one of these green monsters
    Picture him roll’n
    Travel… who needs it when people come to you
    And you can build your own amusement parks.

    Who are the richest James Bond villains?
    Who is the richest Bond villain?

    Every James Bond villains photos

    Forget about the henchmen and lackeys, this article is only about the main antagonists, the truly interesting, those who have the Money and the Power and a lot of both. 

    As any James Bond fan know all Bond nemesis are wealthy, powerful and influent. In fact, just like in real-life, Bond villains need tons of Money to be efficient evil-doers.

    "All James Bond's best enemies were Billionaires." - Ice-T

    With a combined worth of $26.2 Billion, here are the top 10 richest Bond villains as determined by the highly reputable Forbes magazine. Only movies were take into consideration, not the Ian Fleming books.

    1. Hugo Drax, $7.6 Billion  - Moonraker (1979)
    2. Auric Goldfinger, $6.5 Billion  - Goldfinger (1964)
    3. Max Zorin, $5.3 Billion  - A View To A Kill (1983)
    4. Elliot Carver, $3.9 Billion  - Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)
    5. Frank Sanchez, $1 Billion  - License to Kill (1989)
    6. Ernst Stavro Blofeld, $640 Million  - From Russia With Love (1963), Thunderball (1965), You Only Live Twice (1967), On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969), Diamonds Are Forever (1971), For Your Eyes Only (1981) 
    7. Karl Stromberg, $625 Million  - The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)
    8. Elektra King, $420 Million  - The World Is Not Enough (1999)
    9. Francisco Scaramanga, $115 Million  - The Man With The Golden Gun (1974)
    10. Dr. No, $110 Million  - Dr. No (1964)

    Bond villain MBA

    Here are some very interesting studies analysing James Bond villains business strategy with a real-life perspective. As the author Kevin Patrick Leech observed, many of the Bond villains business approaches are far from brillant. 

    One thing for sure is that every Bond villain make the same stupid mistake of letting James Bond alive instead of killing him when they had the occasion.

    If you are like me, you can't get enough of watching and re-watching each and everyone of James Bond classic movies. 

    Below are the most recent James Bond collections for the most avid and dedicated James Bond fans among us.

    Jacob Fugger the Rich worlds richest man

    Was the first documented millionaire weighting $75 Million in sixteenth century dollar and by the time of his death in 1525 had a fortune equaling "just under 2 percent of European economic output". Todays GDP (Gross Domestic Product) of the European Union is USD $18.5 Trillion. Which mean that his net worth would be the equivalent of nearly $370 Billion in 2014.

    He was richer than Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Rockefeller, and Croesus.

    Jakob Fugger of the Lily (6 March 1459 – 30 December 1525), also known as Jakob Fugger the Rich or sometimes Jakob II, was a major merchant, mining entrepreneur and banker of Europe. He was a descendant of the Fugger merchant family located in the Free Imperial City of Augsburg, where he was also born and later also elevated through marriage to Grand Burgher of Augsburg. Within a few decades he expanded the family firm to a business operating in all of Europe. 

    Divide your fortune into four equal parts: stocks, real estate, bonds and gold coins. Be prepared to lose on one of them most of the time. During inflation, you will lose on bonds and win on gold and real estate; during deflation, you lose on real estate and win on bonds, while your stocks will see you through both periods, though in a mixed fashion. Whenever performance differences cause a major imbalance, rebalance your fortunes back to the four equal parts. – Jacob Fugger the Rich, 1459-1525

    Financial assets (stocks and bonds)
    Real assets (gold and real estate)

    Invest like the Fuggers

    Swagg Man sur Comment être Riche

    Swagg Man a republié un article sur "Comment être Riche"
    Il devrait en écrire un sur comment avoir l'air riche.

    comment devient-on riche en France en partant de rien?

    Condition n° 1 :
    pour devenir riche, il faut ... s’intéresser à son argent

    Une évidence me direz-vous ... ? ...Pas si sûr ! Les personnes qui considèrent l’argent autrement que comme une résultante de leur activité professionnelle, qui regardent leur situation financière comme un domaine à part entière de leur vie, sont rares.
    Or si votre richesse (absolue ou relative) peut effectivement provenir de votre activité professionnelle, elle peut tout aussi bien découler d’un loisir ou d’une passion (la cuisine, la photo, internet ...), de votre carnet d’adresses (en étant rémunéré en tant qu’intermédiaire) ou de l’intérêt que vous porterez aux investissements financiers ou à l’immobilier.
    Pour les nombreuses options financières à votre disposition, il vous faudra d’abord apprendre à dissocier le travail et l’argent ; apprendre à vous intéresser à vos finances et leur consacrer du temps et de l’attention. Impossible de devenir riche si "l’argent ne vous intéresse pas" !

    Condition n° 2 :
    affirmer son envie

    Au fond, tout le monde a envie d’être riche. Par héritage, par mariage ou en jouant au loto. Sans rien faire et surtout sans le dire ! Parce que vouloir gagner de l’argent et "devenir riche" est mal vu (depuis quand "riche" est-il devenu un gros mot ?) et forcément hasardeux (pas de succès garanti), nombreux sont ceux qui se contenteront d’en rêver et danseront en permanence un grand écart entre le discours ambiant (haro sur les riches !) et leur désir secret.
    Le premier pas pour devenir riche : arrêter d’en vouloir aux riches ; arrêter de prétendre ne pas vouloir plus d’argent ; accepter des ambitions pour lesquelles l’argent sera le carburant ; accepter l’envie d’avoir ou de faire plus … et commencer à agir dans ce sens.
    Sans nécessairement le proclamer haut et fort (un peu risqué par les temps qui courent) ... se l’avouer à soi-même suffira probablement - dans un premier temps !

    Condition n° 3 :
    Penser autrement

    Peut-on devenir riche en pensant et en faisant comme tout le monde ? Définitivement non ... ! C’est LA condition essentielle pour espérer devenir riche un jour : penser autrement ; voir ce que les autres ne voient pas (le palais sous le tas de pierres) et agir différemment (acheter quand les autres vendent ... épargner quand tout nous incite à consommer ... investir dans une formation plutôt que dans une nouvelle voiture).
    C’est aussi la raison pour laquelle il y a si peu de vrais candidats à la richesse : non pas que l’imagination et la créativité fassent défaut à la plupart d’entre nous, mais parce que penser et agir différemment signifient quitter la majorité pour une minorité, passer parfois pour un peu fou (ou folle) - et jouer les explorateurs sur des sentiers pas vraiment balisés.
    Pas très rassurant et souvent dissuasif.
    Pourtant, la richesse est au prix de l’indépendance et de la différence.

    © 2014

    Condition n° 4 :
    investir et lâcher prise

    On ne devient pas riche sans investir. De l’argent ou du temps. En matière de richesse, avoir de l’argent de côté est forcément un plus.
    Mais notre argent n’est pas la seule ressource à notre disposition. Il en existe d’autres, qui le remplacent souvent avantageusement ... Pour n’en citer que quelques-unes : l’argent des autres ; notre temps ... et la plus importante d’entre toutes : la confiance.
    Pourquoi prête-t-on davantage aux riches qu’aux moins riches ? Parce qu’on leur fait confiance ! Ils ont de l’argent, certes, mais ils ont aussi prouvé qu’ils savaient faire. Est-il nécessaire d’avoir de l’argent pour inspirer la confiance ? Non !
    Mais au fait, que signifie "investir" ? Voici ma définition : investir, c’est mobiliser une ressource sans garantie sur le résultat. En prenant le risque que cette "dépense" (d’énergie ou d’argent) puisse être perdue.
    Mais en espérant que nos calculs, nos projections, notre anticipation de l’avenir seront justes et porteront leurs fruits !
    Et si devenir riche se résumait finalement à un acte de foi ? Une école du lâcher prise dont nous avions tous le secret à la naissance : lorsque nous avons lâché la main qui nous sécurisait pour apprendre à marcher seul (e) !
