My name is Eran Bucai.
This page is dedicated to telling you about myself as a human.
From a young age, I always wanted to have the freedom to travel and help people.
I was born and raised in Tel-Aviv, Israel to loving and supportive parents. I have two younger brothers and a sister.
I left home when I was my teens. Despite being on opposite sides of the world, we are still close as a family.
My father was born in Israel. His mother was born in Iraq and his father in Syria. What a combination!
My father comes from a family of 5 brothers and sisters. He is the youngest. All 5 siblings are married, 4 of them have 4 children and 1 of them has 3 children. Here’s the latest family photo when I went for a long-overdue visit.
My mother was born in India. Her family moved to Israel when she was very young. She is the 6th child of 10. They are all now married with children, each having had 4 – 12 children of their own. My Grandmother now has 50 grandchildren. Here is a photo of just some of them, in my latest visit to Israel.
So we are quite a large family!
My entire family of brothers, sister, parents, uncles, aunts, cousins, and nephews (over 100), all live in Israel in various cities and towns. I am the only one who lives abroad.
I consider myself lucky to have seen some of the world from a young age. I’ve visited England, Italy, France, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, New Zealand, America, the Caribbean and 3 other islands where I had my bar mitzvah* in the oldest synagogue* in the southern hemisphere.
(bar mitzvah = the religious initiation ceremony of a Jewish boy who has reached the age of 13 and is regarded as ready to observe religious precepts and eligible to take part in public worship.)
(synagogue = the building where a Jewish assembly or congregation meets for religious worship and instruction.)
At my late teens, I settled in Sydney Australia and have since become an Australian citizen.
Despite living here for the last decade, I still read, write and speak Hebrew relatively fluently. I am also fluent in English (i.e. Australian English) and am more comfortable in that language after being overseas for so long.
As an entrepreneur, I also had the pleasure of travelling to different countries to attend business conferences in Las Vegas, Mexico, and Fiji.
I want to tell you a little bit about me and my hobbies:
My 3rd biggest hobby is soccer.
I am a big soccer (aka football) fan, inspired by the famous Brazilian Ronaldo in 1995. I follow European leagues and all major competitions. I play in an indoor soccer team on a weekly basis.
While I am far from Ronaldo’s level of skill, I am a serious fanatic and enjoy the game very much. I have dozens of soccer jerseys, half a dozen (or more) soccer cleats.
I even have a playlist on my YouTube channel with all my personal soccer highlights, below is an example of one of my favourite personal games.
My 2nd biggest hobby is to learn new things.
When I say “learn” or “study”, I do not mean being forced to read a book in school before an exam. I mean I like to learn new things all the time, for example:
- Watch educational videos,
- google things you want to know about,
- talk to people who know,
- talk to people who don’t know,
- evaluate and isolate for yourself what is true,
- evaluate and isolate for yourself what is false,
- observe what people are saying,
- observe what people are doing,
- learn about successful people and what made them successful,
- learn about unsuccessful people and isolate why they are unsuccessful.
And so on.
Probably my favourite is to LISTEN to or READ BOOKS. I have a whole section on my website dedicated to the subject of studying books. (eranbucai.com/bookstore)
Another great way I learn is from movies. Lots of movies have a valuable message for life (like the movies INVICTUS, FROZEN, PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS, UNSTOPPABLE, THE FOUNDER, just to give some random examples),
And of course, you have to learn from your experience too.
Consider your past actions, your present actions, consider where you want to go and whether you are heading in the right direction in life or not, see where things went right, where things went wrong, and to continuously learn from your mistakes, learn from the good and bad things from your past, be willing to be wrong, and also be willing to be right, and always, always, always strive to be and do better and improve – and most importantly always be true to your own observations – be honest with yourself about what you have observed.
Learning new things is a habit that we do every single day.
We do not always see it like that, but I think we actually do that instinctively. I consider it a hobby, something I enjoy doing as a means to strive for improvement in life for myself and others.
My 4th biggest hobby is the game Chess
I LOVE playing Chess. I was introduced to Chess in 4th grade at my school in Israel. Someone decided it was a good idea and implemented it for an hour a week. Most kids dreaded the game but for me, it was one of the most enjoyable hours in my schooling.
Chess taught me how to observe, to think about the future, the potential consequences of your actions, to think what would happen if you did something good or bad, how to strategize, to plan ahead, to weigh up your options, all with the intention of winning or achieving victory.
I find this outlook successful in life.
My biggest and most favourite hobby is helping others.
My parents raised me to be hard-working, honest and independent. I am grateful for the values they taught me.
Because of this, I have always been more concerned with helping others. It saddens me to see the pain and suffering that goes on in the world, and I try to improve conditions wherever I can and make this world a better place to live in.
When I do succeed in helping another, and they recognize it, it brings me the most joy. And when that person starts to make a positive difference in the lives of those around them, that would be my ultimate win for having helped that person. A ripple effect of help.
Even though I was quite shy as a kid and somewhat scared of talking to new people, I’ve come to really like people in general. I like talking to them, I like listening to them and to interact with people in general. I prefer to interact with people than to play with my phone or my computer or watch TV. I would say I am a people person.
I have a circle of close friends that I have personally helped and that have helped me. My close friends, (and they know who they are), are people that accept me for who I am, no matter what. I have great respect for them for being so understanding, supportive, and caring for me. It goes both ways – and they know that too.
But even those people who aren’t as close to me are still friends, and they know that I will always be there for them.
I think it is important to be there for someone you know and to be available to help them. You never know how desperate they are, or how much of a difference it could make in their life. I have been there for quite a few people in my short life so far, and let me tell you, it is a great feeling to know you have helped them. Sometimes I did not realize how important it was that I was there, until later.
At the end of this page, I’ll share with you the website page I am most proud of, which is my testimonials page. It is simply proof of me helping others.
Possibly this is your very first encounter with me. Unless you already know me personally, I am still a “nobody” to you. If you stumbled across my website and read this far on this page, perhaps I am starting to come out of being a “nobody” into a “somebody”. Or maybe you just mistyped the website you were after.
I am making this website in the hope that one day, it will be a hub for people from all over to world to come and get guidance to improve their own life and the lives of their family and friends. And I hope that one day if you read this page again, that this day has already arrived.
In my experience and years of relationships with family, friends, colleagues, and acquaintances, I have found there is one way you can help pretty much anyone in most situations – and that is to LISTEN. Maybe you have nothing clever to say back to the person to help them resolve their problem, but listening alone is itself a great way to help people. Try it.
I am always looking for like-minded individuals so if you like anything about my story, feel free to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org, send me a friend request on Facebook (always PM me before I would accept you), follow me on Instagram, Linked-In, or subscribe to my YouTube Channel – or all of them!
My goal and mission is to help over a million people.
To do that, I started building a social media following where I post regularly. This is mostly on Instagram.
And also an email list where I send regular emails, blogs, with helpful information about business and life.
I would love for you to be one of those people that I help.
I will ALWAYS answer your questions either directly in an email, or through a blog post or even a YouTube video.
If you have a question, there is no doubt someone else will have a question too. And so the more content I create, the more questions I answer, the more people I am able to help.
Thank you very much for reading, I really appreciate it.
Feel free to reach out at any time.
PS – The following video was recorded for an online course I created that teaches the basics of online marketing and having an internet business. In that video, I shared in detail my story, in case you want to learn more about me.
