A few years ago I hopped an early morning flight to Hong Kong.
In Hong Kong I opened up my necessary bank accounts to make my publishing company official.
That company is called Superdrive Publishing Limited and I have been spending a lot of my time developing and nurturing content for this company.
Under the Superdrive Publishing banner are currently 5 websites: Bold & Determined, VictorPride.com, John Doe Bodybuilding, BOSS MMA, and Iron & Tweed (brand new addition).
In the future we will be adding more websites and more books.
Our first official book release under the superdrive banner was Becoming the Bull by John Doe Bodybuilding.
Becoming the Bull is the best book about bodybuilding training, diet, nutrition and steroids that has ever been released and I recommend it for anyone who is into bodybuilding.
We have some more books in the works and some more website launches planned.
In the meantime…
Here is a recap for all of the articles published by Superdrive Publishing in the month of June, 2015.

Future of B&D
I have been living abroad for the better part of five years.
In my time abroad there’s one truth I have been reminded of repeatedly…
West is best.
America is the greatest country on earth…..for making money.
Not necessarily for dating, not for total freedom, but for making money America is #1.
(America is also best in the world for food. When I visit the grocery store here in Dalat I literally only buy eggs and bread.)
I don’t believe I would be able to live as financially comfortable as I do if I were not American.
America has a lot of problems, but opportunity is not one of those problems.
More opportunity exists in America than anywhere else in the world.
I will be spending a lot more time in the States starting soon.
I’m looking at San Francisco or New York City.
I’m leaning towards San Francisco thanks to this article – The Top 5 Cities in North America to Get Rich and Enjoy Life.
I know the cities are very expensive, and that’s why I like them. Cheapness doesn’t excite me.
If things are too expensive, you make more money to compensate. Problem solved for everyone involved.
Not only does cheapness not excite me, it makes me sick. I can no longer stand cheapness after seeing it up close and personal in Vietnam.
I currently live in a very cheap city (I pay $333 per month for my house) and the stench of cheapness makes me sick.
Poor people keep themselves poor
Recently I saw a group of SIX! grown Asian men together eating dinner. To save money they shared one bottle of water and poured the water into six shot glasses.
“Right” I thought. “Maybe if all six of you weren’t dehydrated you could work a little bit harder and make enough money to buy water“.
It is one thing to live spartan (I can pack everything I need into one suitcase and one backpack, anything else I will just give away)…
…and it is quite another to keep the lights off and live in darkness so you don’t have to pay a large electric bill.
I’m going to the States to kick ass in business and grow the B&D network into something larger than life, and that simply isn’t going to happen in cheap-town.
Your city plays a big part in your life. Places like Manhattan, Silicon Valley, Hong Kong, Singapore and London exist for a reason – to make money.
Places like Dalat exist for one reason – to stay poor.
San Francisco vs Manhattan
If you’re a New Yorker or a San Franciscan please leave your thoughts on these two cities in the comments below.
Pros and cons will be weighed before a choice is made.
But leave out the “it’s so expensive!” arguments pretty please. Being expensive is a bonus, it isn’t a drawback.
PS – To celebrate the 4th of July we have some badass SPARTAN raglan 3/4 t-shirts coming out very soon.
In a cool climate, the raglan 3/4 shirt is my favorite style of casual shirt.
The SPARTAN shirt won’t be ready until mid July, fortunately we can take pre-orders and your shirt will be shipped as soon as they arrive (mid to late July).
These SPARTAN 3/4 tees are limited (we’ve only got 100 available to us) and after they’re sold out they might go away forever.
The shirts are on Alternative stock. They are very comfortable (50% Polyester, 38% Cotton, 12% Rayon) and they are very high quality (I have about 10 of them right now).
We only have sizes medium, large and x-large and when they’re gone, they’re gone for good, so grab yours now.
