What is this?
This course is a practical apprenticeship in building an offshore income. The goal is to help South Africans create online income sourced outside South Africa.
An external income protects against the economic difficulties looming as ESKOM struggles to fix the electricity infrastructure. Our solution reduces dependence on a consistent electrical supply. We use batteries to drive the tools we need:
- A laptop PC
- A mobile phone
We host your entire income engine in Europe or the USA, where the electrical supply is stable.
We source income in any stable currency like the US Dollar, the GB pound or the Euro. Every major currency is more durable than the ZAR. If the ZAR drops, our local income in SA rises.
The markets we will target are international, which means we are free of our local economy and crises it faces:
- Electricity supply
You will work with me over the next three months. We will each assemble our unique version of an International Affiliate Marketing Platform.
Instead of working within the SA economy (the size of a small US city) with all the problems it faces, we can access stable, growing economies hundreds of times bigger than South Africa's. (And we can access all of them at the same time.)
This approach is not a get-rich scheme. It is a considered approach to solving the challenges traditional retirement poses to South African residents in the light of COVID and the SA economy. Especially those folk whose retirement resources depleted during this COVID time.
Build a website, hosted offshore, focused on some area of interest you have. Once you've done this once, replicating it is easy.
- It's offshore so it's not affected by any SA crisis.
- If you choose to leave it's already offshore.
- If you choose to sell it, it's already offshore.
Assemble a cohort of merchants willing to pay you when you guide customers to their products. (Like the customers you've worked with during your career.)
- Your income is not reliant on any single source.
Build a prospecting engine to find interested people via search engine optimisation as well as advertising.
- Once set up this does not need daily tuning and attention.
Build a marketing engine to keep these interested people coming back.
- This one area ignored by most people trying to develop this kind of income.
Build a local (SA) low tax entity to receive these funds to build a secure entity to fund your retirement as well as transfer the remaining funds to your heirs.
- This saves tax.
- This keeps your funds secure not matter what happens to you.
Build an offshore low tax entity to receive these funds for future emigration.
- This eliminates all the hassle with whatever Exchange Control regime is in place when you want to go.
- Unlimited commissions from unlimited merchants for the sales they make to the people you introduce.
- Unlimited scalability to repeat this process, or to grow each process.

Frequently Asked Questions
I have lived in one of the world's most expensive countries (Norway) since 2009. My income has come exclusively from South African clients. (I like them, and it was enough for a comfortable life here.)
But, the SA economy is in dire straits. The number of small businesses has shrunk from around 1 million to about 250,000. (This was my primary market.)
If I am facing these issues, so are you.
Since I must point my systems into much larger economies, I'd like to do this with a group of people like you as we support and encourage each other. It's a lot more fun that way. The group pressure keeps all of us enthusiastic and productive through the more challenging times, which inevitably arise during this kind of new focus.
