My plan was to spent a solid six months in Medellin, but after three months I was ready to throw in the towel. I hated everything about the city. Compared to the colorful Rio de Janeiro, where I had just lived for two years, Medellin was monotone and drab in comparison. Then there was the […]

My First Book *The Sovereign Man* Is Finally Out

By Maverick · October 20, 2014

As a man who roams the world and seduces women and then eloquently writes about his experiences, I, unsurprisingly, get a lot of email from guys who want to do the same. Some of the guys reach out to me for travel tips, but most of the time they seek my counsel when it comes to […]

How To Become Comfortable With Rejection

By Maverick · October 10, 2014

“Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself.” — Franklyn D. Roosevelt Around a year ago, I somehow stumbled on a TV show called Shark Tank, where small business owners pitch their ideas to venture capitalists in the hope that the latter will invest into their fledgling businesses. The four judges, all of them successful multi-millionaires […]

When I was young and clueless, my benchmark for a successful date was one that ended with at least a kiss. Since a kiss is an indicator of attraction, it signaled that there would never be any misunderstanding and weirdness (i.e., friends-zone) between the girl and myself because I wanted to have sex and she […]

My 5 Most Important Business Lessons

By Maverick · September 26, 2014

I’ve dabbled in various projects over the years. Some made money. Some didn’t.

I was once at a great club in Belo Horizonte, Brazil with my Mexican roommate. He hooked up in record time, leaving me to hunt all alone. Ten minutes later I approached a cute Brazilian girl. I could tell by her body language that she wasn’t into me, so in some desperate attempt to change the […]

I Can’t Really Ask For More

By Maverick · September 19, 2014

I’ve been in St. Petersburg, Russia for about a month. Initially I did plenty of sightseeing and went on a few dates, but for the past week or so have been busy working on a project and finishing up my book. But last night I just had to go out. My plan was simple. I wanted […]

Game Is Always A Two-Way Street

By Maverick · September 18, 2014

I still remember a particular date over three years later. It was with a girl I met online while I was living in Medellin, Colombia. On the week leading up to the date, we chatted no less than four times, few of those times were via video. There was definitely chemistry. Both of us were […]

Is Russia A Backward Country?

By Maverick · September 15, 2014

About a month before going to Russia, I was talking to a Russian friend who had just returned from a quick trip to the country. He was born in Russia but has been living in California for most of his life. I asked him what he thought about his mother country. He replied that he […]
