Who pays Alexandros?
ow do you finance this bike trip?
Many people ask this question and I can understand this. I mean, come on. Seeing somebody (me) traveling around the world since 2011, that is something that brings up the question: "How does this dude pays his bills?"
I can give you a few examples, with what I financed my life during 2011 to 2015, so I can make it around the world. To keep it short: I did everything to be on the road, here is a list:
- cleaning toilets in Ljubljana, Slovenia to get food and some drinks
- washing dishes in Italy, to get free Pizza and a place to stay for a few nights
- selling apples from trees around the city, driving to the center and offering them
- sending postcards to people who followed my trip, for a donation
- giving massage to woman that I anyway liked and asked for a place to sleep (no, I did not end up with them in bed, we are not in Hollywood here)
- having presentations about my bike trip in small places and getting free food and shelter
- working as a 1-2day model for photographers around the world, so I can finance flights or new equipment
- writing many articles about "how is it to live without sex in India" or "what kind of drugs to experience during a world trip"
- giving key-note talks for money and connecting the right people in the business, getting a donation for the connect
- offering my writing skills in Germany (my main language) to get paid on an hourly base
- working on a sailing boat from a French Skipper or helping on Lagoon 350 to support the crew - having food and shelter
- walking dogs, working on farms or on a construction side to get paid for my physical work
- being in a TV spot for RC Cola Bangladesh, as a Deejay and then from there getting another model job
- selling hot dogs with my first wife in Perth, Australia and almost not getting paid, because the owner were fucked up
And how do I live today?
The art in life is, that you play your skills in the best way. Why should I do stuff that I am not good in or things that I do not feel good about. So after being married with a very professional marketing power.woman, I faced that my magical skill is: connecting people.
And I learned how to make money with this super-skill. I had to learn my lessons and failed many times, but shortly after divorce in 2018/19 my connector-personality took off. I started a company, called alexandros.team where people could ask me for experts in Facebook Marketing or other business areas. I stay in contact with the best people all around the globe and whoever needs help, I am the guy they are asking.
How do this brings me money?
Imagine it like this. A company in Switzerland is searching for an expert in Facebook Marketing. I go into my network and ask my friends and experts about their availability. At the same time I do a valuation call with the company in Switzerland, to find out on which energetic level they operate. That is important, as finally people never work only on a product or service, they work on something together as a team and teams are made out of people. I connect them and I take care that things are well discussed before they start to work. As soon as my expert is getting paid, I take a commission (around 10-20%) of his payment. That is my money, I monetize my super skill, the thing I can do best: connecting people.
If you have any questions, follow me on Instagram and ask me about this topic, I am very open and I love to share knowledge, so you can get closer to your skills and get rid of your fears. In everyone of us is a super hero, just get deep and find him/her within you.
PS: You know what is the most amazing thing. Let me tell you. During my bike trip now to Patagonia, I got covered by private investors who want to make me feel like a mix of "Great Alexandros - Greek Diva - Tarzan with Speedo and the Crypto Robin hood" - I offer them private entertainment and they are wealthy enough to cover my food and shelter. And therefore I can donate 100% of my earnings from connecting brands with experts. I do this, so we can reach the 1 million faster and help the projects to make this world a better place.
PS II: Many of you reaching out to me and telling me, that they would feel happy if they can give me a donation, so I have a great dinner or a massage, a SPA day or whatever. I know how it is, you want to support, you want to give your love and share good energy. I am not holding you back from it, so if you want to make a donation towards me, Alexandros, then please do it like this:

3. I gonna reach out to you, to say thank you and keeping you up to date, what I am doing with the money.

Important: If you do not mention my name in the comment, I will split the money through the 100 projects. Thanks
