On The Sidelines With Stephen



My co host is holding out for a bigger contract, so I will be doing this show by myself until he gets the money he wants.


  • EP185 - Does your home make you money?

    19/03/2023 Duração: 41min

    Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad stated, ‘ Your house is not an asset. Rather it is a liability.’ Whereas I agree with this statement, as a contrarian I have to see this more of a challenge rather than statement of fact. In this episode I want to explore how you can make your home an asset rather than a liability.

  • EP184A - Everything's a Ponzi Scheme

    15/03/2023 Duração: 48min

    I am recording this episode at a time when the banking stocks are crashing, people panicking that their deposits may be gone without their control, inflation continues to reveal its truth and there seems to be no upside in the economy today. Why? It is because EVERYTHING is a Ponzi scheme.

  • EP184 - The biggest mistake most people make in hard times

    12/03/2023 Duração: 36min

    It is no secret that the western world is going through economic hard times right now.  It might not feel that way if you look at the stock markets, but the average family is dealing with company lay-offs and wage reductions, while costs are souring due to economic mismanagement by central planners.  As a result, the average person has to find a way to do more with less.  But few are well trained in this, and most will make what can often be considered fatal mistakes in how they attempt to remedy this situation.   Referenced video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5qvBKbMd74  

  • EP183 - The Renter's Bill of Wrongs

    05/03/2023 Duração: 57min

    On January 25th 2023, the world of smart income took a big hit in the form of the Biden Administration’s ‘Blueprint for a Renters Bill of Rights’. This bill, which would likely be an executive order by the president, attempts to address the rental housing affordability crisis as they would see it, reduce homelessness and other progressive ideals. But the unintended consequences of such a bill would destroy freedom, reduce housing affordability, penalize independent rental property ownership , eliminate the biggest part of smart income for financial sustainability, and constrain all of us to the world of predictable worker slaves until the day we die. https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/statements-releases/2023/01/25/fact-sheet-biden-harris-administration-announces-new-actions-to-protect-renters-and-promote-rental-affordability/ https://www.forbes.com/sites/anafaguy/2023/01/25/biden-proposes-renters-bill-of-rights---heres-what-it-will-do/?sh=61e257b950f3  

  • EP182 - Having a job is extremely dangerous to your health

    26/02/2023 Duração: 55min

    Today I want to talk to you about the extreme danger of having a job. Or even thinking that Jobs are a good thing. Because it seems that the wizards of hypnosis and social manipulation - the governments and bankers - are at it again, lying and championing their success based on jobs. So ask yourself this - if you had the perfect life, would it include the crappy job you are forced to spend 75% of your waking life going to each day?

  • EP181 - Finding freedom in tightly coupled systems

    19/02/2023 Duração: 45min

    In the world of computer software, we design code based on what we call ‘tight’ or ‘loose’ coupling. Tightly coupled systems make assumptions about what they connect to – that they are stable and predictable. Loosely coupled systems better account for flexibility and change. However when I look at the world today, I see the 21st century is the result of humans building ONLY tightly coupled systems. In this episode, I’m going to deep dive what this means and why it leads to this boom & bust world that we are all being subjected to.

  • EP180 - Tipping

    12/02/2023 Duração: 01h23s

    On a recent trip to Las Vegas, a friend of mine & I commented on the state of tipping. As someone who came from a country where tipping is not customary or expected, it was a culture shock to an immigrant in the USA. However there are pros & cons for tipping, so in this episode I want to deep dive the culture of tipping and how to protect yourself from vultures, yet incentivize the individual.

  • EP179 - Travel hacking in 2023

    05/02/2023 Duração: 01h16min

    I do a lot of traveling, and with at least one international flight per month and peppering in the odd domestic route, there’s a lot I’ve learned with decades of international travel experience. In this episode, I’m going to give you my current tips & tricks to make your traveling super cheap or free in 2023.

  • EP178 - How not to be pwned

    29/01/2023 Duração: 01h02min

    The press loves to have a field day when some service we rely on gets hacked. In this episode, I’m going to tell you how to have a smaller attack footprint – that is how to not be a target in this digital world, how we got to this point and what we can do going forward.

  • EP177 - Technology - A cautionary tale

    22/01/2023 Duração: 54min

    For as long as I have been alive, technology has shaped our world.  In fact, it created my wealth since I bought the first commercially available personal computer in 1977 – I turned it into a career.  But after over 40 years of being a part of that world, there’s something going on in the road forward now that is unusual, scary and you need to know about this if you intend to be a part of that industry, or someone that is punting on massive returns in that sector.

  • EP176 - Spending NO money in 10 days

    15/01/2023 Duração: 01h05min

    In this episode, I’m going to take you on a little journey with me – an experiment that I’ve just undertaken successfully, to spend NO money in 10 days.  All during the most spend-heavy time of the year – the December Christmas period.  Why?  Because I wanted to prove just how insane society in the USA has gotten regarding consumption and why this will ultimately lead to a horrible ending.

  • EP175 - Understanding cashflow vs. investing

    08/01/2023 Duração: 01h02min

    The biggest misconception that most people chasing financial independence is that it is all about investing. They do everything to save as much money and invest it. Yet 90% of those doing this are not experts in investing. They just put the money in the hands of counterparties to invest for them and hope & pray. Then get back to earning money to put more money in those investments. In this episode we are going to explain the weaknesses in this approach and why it won’t help you unless you know what you are doing.

  • EP174 - Getting busy in 2023

    01/01/2023 Duração: 01h35min

    Rather than the typical predictions of 2023, or new years resolutions, I've recorded this podcast to talk about action.  What I'm doing in 2023, and why.  Enjoy.

  • EP172 - What they don’t tell you about maintaining multiple residencies & passports

    18/12/2022 Duração: 57min

    There are dozens of advocates on the Internet, YouTube, Podcasts, etc. that tell you to get second or third residencies, multiple passports, etc. But few will ever disclose the level of effort to maintain these things. In this episode, I’m going to tell you my own challenges with these things over time, and what is required as a US person to be compliant and yet have the freedom of movement to be unconstrained.

  • EP171 - In the spirit of...

    11/12/2022 Duração: 46min

    I came to a realization recently that most of the reasons you are broke, hopeless, and can’t get out of the rut we find ourselves in, is because we make decisions based on the spirit of something, but then we come face to face with the reality of implementation. So let’s talk about that.

  • EP170 - Healthcare strategies

    04/12/2022 Duração: 01h18min

    I haven't done an episode on Health insurance and healthcare for a while, but realized that with more indepth knowledge and information on Mexico options - not just for surgeries but general and emergency healthcare, I need to update what I'm doing with my health strategies, why and how you might also be able to benefit with this knowledge.

  • EP169 - Predictions for The New Normal

    27/11/2022 Duração: 01h26min

    In this episode, I will make some predictions for the short and medium term future and how we got to this place, and where the unconstrained can go to avoid losing their power and sovereignty for the future.
