If you want to become an international playboy, it could take a lot of work. What if you haven’t got time for that? Fake it until you make it. While this isn’t really the base for a real change to your lifestyle, try one of these tweaks to convince someone you’ve got much higher status than you have. Maybe you want to finish off a business deal or impress someone, or maybe you want to start making changes so that you can get to the next level. Remember, becoming an international playboy isn’t really something you can do overnight. It takes a lot of money and some real lifestyle changes. But if you just want to pull it off for a few hours or days, use one of these tricks:
There’s one thing most international playboys are good at—and that’s gambling. Especially poker. And we don’t mean loading up your laptop and staying in your bedroom for a bit of online poker. You’ve got to hit the poshest casino in town and splash the cash around a bit. Remember, those people won’t know you, so you can make any impression you want. Learn the basics of Texas Holdem and give it a go.
One good trick is to sit down and change a lot of money up, and then play really “tight” and don’t get involved in much action. Then after an hour or two, change your money up and stop playing. You’ll give the impression of having a lot of money,but won’t really have to have spent it. Just don’t get caught in a position where you lose a lot.
At the high-roller tables, it’s often about who you know. Networking is important. Stick around for a while and you’ll get invited to some of the best parties in the area.
Know the staff
International playboys treat staff like waiters and barmen really well. That normally means tipping, but also remembering their names. When you return, they should remember you—and that shows status to the people you’re with.
Get an American Express Card, ideally a red one. This shows status.
Frequent flyers club
Make sure you get as many frequent flyer miles as possible so that you can start enjoying the perks. Don’t forget to drop these into conversation,and be overly friendly with the cabin crew. They might know where the next party is.
Have a driver
Nothing screams status like having your own driver. No, not an uber driver. Hire a car for the night and get it to take you around town. The right drivers will have the right connections to clubs and parties.
Befriend a promoter
The best way to get into the VIP area and the best parties and events is to make friends with a promotor. Offer to invest if you want to get your leg up the social ladder even more.
