If you ever find yourself bemoaning the fact that you can’t find the expertise or help locally consider the case of the Icelandic meat trade. So desperate are they for skilled staff that every September Icelandic meat processors pay the flights and accommodation of 12 butchers to make the 13,850 mile trip from rural New Zealand to a remote corner of Iceland so that they can cover for the peak lamb processing season.
Looking at it from the other side of the coin, if you ever find yourself complaining that there’s ‘no work’ consider the lengths to which these New Zealanders are going, so they can continue to put food on the table in a slack period for their trade at home.
It’s a mutually beneficial relationship, and inspiring to see both employer and employed going the extra mile (well over 13,000 of them!) to keep the wheels turning.
Have you even gone a fraction of this effort to give or find work? I know I haven’t.

Where Should Home Be
If you can work from home, one question you should be asking yourself is- “Where should home be?” Why is it important? Because your decision will have a huge impact on your lifestyle and wealth.
Most people who work from home are able to do it by virtue of the internet. An organisation called NomadList has combined data on internet speed, the cost of rental housing and food, local weather conditions including air quality and other factors to come up with a useful list of the best cities in which to live and work remotely. With living costs in some cities being ten times those on other cities with identical internet speed, it makes thought-provoking reading for anyone working from home.
Today’s National Day
NATIONAL COOKIE DAY!
Dear Streetwise Customer,
For most of us, the Coronavirus outbreak has been unmitigated bad news. Nothing good has come of it…
But Michael Saiger isn’t one of those people.
Acting as a go-between, the Florida based jewellery designer (yes you did read that right!) supplied protective garments for NHS staff in the coronavirus pandemic…
And was paid $28m (£21m) in UK taxpayer cash!
Earlier this year, as the coronavirus pandemic was spreading rapidly around the world, Saiger set up a business to supply PPE to governments…from scratch.
He didn’t make PPE, he didn’t know anything about PPE, he didn’t even have any contacts in government. And yet just a few months later, he was made for life.
Putting together highly lucrative deals – whilst supplying or purchasing absolutely nothing – is what our underground instruction manual 5% Of A Million is all about.

Not many people are going to make £21 Million in 97 days but there are THOUSANDS out there, quietly making £50,000…£80,000…£100,000 a time by simply putting buyers and sellers together.
As a stay-at-home, desk-based business, this takes a lot of beating.
Take a look NOW. The next jackpot could be yours.
Very Best Wishes,
