HOW TO DEVELOP THE OFFSHORE MINDSET

By Robert Smith.

I overheard a conversation the other day. Someone was complaining how they had to pay tax on the interest they were earning on a particular investment. I had a passing urge to join the conversation then changed my mind. Why? I realized that although this person was unhappy about paying this extra tax, it didn't mean she wanted to hear me rave on about why she shouldn't be paying any tax at all!

I understood that my awareness of offshore alternatives did not automatically mean that this person would either be ready to hear about them - or even be interested in such ideas. Because before you can really benefit from offshore structuring, you need to have a particular mindset. It's no use trying to avoid taxes, while deep inside believing you are doing something terrible. All that will happen is you'll be plagued with guilt and have sleepless nights!

An offshore mindset is more than just wanting to avoid the worst excesses of the tax system - it's knowing that you are perfectly entitled, as a sovereign entity, to make your own personal arrangements - for your own personal advantage.

The word "offshore" has taken on far more meaning than the word itself indicates. It represents an assertion of your right to live free of arbitrary rules and regulations as set up by so-called governments. It means setting yourself apart from nationalist thinking and grasping the concept that the whole world is available to you. That the artificial barriers set up between countries are no reason why you should feel limited by them.

An offshore mindset means seeing yourself as a citizen of an alternative world - a sort of "Galt's Gulch". (John Galt, the hero in the novel "Atlas Shrugged", created a place where all the productive people in the world could escape to - away from the parasites. He then went about persuading these people to stop supporting a rotten system by being part of it - and instead to remove their "sanction" of the system by leaving it.)

Now, armed with the knowledge that using offshore structures can genuinely benefit you, and that you are perfectly entitled to be so benefited, you can implement a plan that will increase the odds in your favour. For hanging on to the money you have worked hard to earn has to be one of the most rational and moral things you can do!

CONTROL YOUR DESKTOP

 
In previous issue, our column about "Control your desktop" showed you how important it is to have a partitioned hard disk.
In this issue let's see together how to use the partitions to make back-up of essentials files and folders; in order to have a safety-net against possible disaster.

PERFORM BACK-UP WITHOUT ADDITIONAL DEVICE

I have three partitions on my system: C:/; D:/; E:/ - I presume that you have the same.

You can easily back-up files and folders from one partition to the other without the need of any additional hardware; you need only your partitions and a dedicated software.

You may use Microsoft files manager - Microsoft-Explorer - which comes with Windows 95/ 98 to perform drag and drop of folders and files from C:/ to D:/ or E:/.

However, as you may have noticed, drag and drop is sometimes tricky to perform using Explorer... It's better to use Microsoft "PowerToys for Windows 95/98" which has - amongst other goodies - the extended "Send to" facility. With the Send-to command extension installed it is really much easier to copy or move files from one folder to another into another partition or inside the same partition.
Microsoft PowerToys for Windows 95/98 is available at this link.

A VERY USEFUL FILES MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE

Of course, I do have Microsoft PowerToys for Windows 95/ 98 installed; but I prefer to use another nifty program to manage my files and folders into and between the partitions of my hard disk: WINDOWS COMMANDER.

I agree 100% with the name. It's not a usurped denomination. That program is really a Windows Commander: a program which makes managing files and folders in Windows a real child game!

It can display two panels of the same partition and make drag and drop of file between two different folders located in the same partition a easy task.
It features other goodies like a sophisticated FTP client capable of direct server to server transfer; a handy split program is available to help you split large files into smaller ones for storage on floppies or transfer over the Internet; the same program rejoin the files on a fly.

With Windows Commander installed on your system, you can compare and synchronize directories etc..It's a must have; a real treat and I am sure that you will ask yourself how you lived and survived without it!

Ok! in few words I recommend it to increase your productivity and perform "inter" back-up of your system.

You may download a trial copy at the following link: WINDOWS COMMANDER.

In AFRICABIZ next issue, we will see which essential files and folders you need to absolutely back-up - "inter back-up or back-up without additional hardware" - to be in the position - in case of unexpected crash or nasty bugs occurrence- to perform a serene restoration of your valuable data and files.
