The vCEO: New Format and More Focus.

As some of you may know, this blog had some serious issues last week. It was maliciously hacked 2 times over a period of 10 days, and yesterday the database just completely failed out of nowhere. I seriously considered just dropping it all together, but I was hit with some inspiration last night to look at the issues as a good thing and use it as an opportunity to shake things up a bit.

First of all, I realized the blogging was important to me in more ways than I realized. Generally, I am not a ‘blogger’, and I particularly am not a fan of writing, but I love to help and provide resources to aid in the journey of up and coming vCEO’s. I also want an outlet to advocate the role of being a ‘Product Creator’ as a business model.

There will be 2 major changes at the vCEO. First, I have changed the base format of the blog to be more like a tumble blog, which will give me an opportunity to post shorter, more focused material, and to post more often. The second change is something I have been wanting to get into more often, Podcasting.

The Podcast’s will be focused around building businesses and products, insight into what I do to grow and enhance my business, and maybe a sprinkling of what others are doing through interviews and guests. That’s the theory for now at least.

The vCEO’s Guide to Labuan: Setting up Your Tax Free Offshore Business (free ebook)

Are You a Traveling or Lifestyle Business Entrepreneur?

Want to Protect Your Business and Your Hard Earned Money?

We all know about the potential of setting up offshore businesses, but there are most likely 2 things stopping you from biting the bullet…

  • Where? Hong Kong, Singapore, Philippines. or… ?
  • How? Navigating Bureaucracy is a hassle.

Unless you have a ton of money, local partners, and want to pack up and permanently move to Hong Kong, Singapore, or the Philippines, you need to forget those places. They are great for some businesses, but have a ton of drawbacks such as minimal capital requirements, residency requirements, ect.

I have a little secret.

There is a little known Malaysian island off the coast of Borneo called Labuan. It is developed, safe, and secure.

Some of the cool facts about setting up your business in Labuan:

  • It is really easy to set up and takes less than a week.
  • You can have a local bank account in a day.
  • Non-Trading Business have 0% tax.
  • No minimum capital requirements.
  • Trading businesses get to choose – 3% tax on earnings or a 1 time fee of MYR20,000 (US$5.650).
  • Americans don’t need a visa.
  • The Labuan government is all about privacy. Your business finances and even your name are not open to the public, including the US IRS.
  • Never want to actually go to Labuan? No Problem.
  • You want to set up shop there? No Problem.
  • You want to bring in Foreign employees? Easy.

And that’s just getting started.

I am giving away a free ebook called Labuan: the vCEO’s Guide to South East Asia’s Most Promising Business Hub.

Anatomy of Ideas in Action: Part 1

I love Apple products. My daily business life revolves around iOS and OSX. I owned at least 1 or more generations of every product Apple has released since Jobs came back to the company. I’m a UX/UI designer, so Apples aestethic tickles my emotions. A handful of my readers may argue with me, but it’s just a much better computer overall to use.

I feel Apple has really failed when it comes to iTunes, and more specifically the iOS App Store. It’s not built for discovery at all, and don’t even get me started with trying to sift through all the garbage that exists. It’s a trash heap of over 15,000 new apps per week. (more…)
