Entrepreneurs can be real douchebags.
The people who identify as entrepreneurs are often pretenders. They’re the ones looking for fame and glory by running a business and making money.
Look at the WeWork founder. Look at the Theranos founder. Yuck.
I prefer to spend time with people who are on their way to becoming entrepreneurs and don’t even know it. They have a certain level of humility that is contagious.
The label of entrepreneur is pretty misleading. …
There’s a lot that can rot your soul.
We’re surrounded by things that are bad for us. From phones, to Netflix, to too much hanky-panky, to sugary foods, to writing that destroys our mental health. If I had a bowl of popcorn for everybody who said “that’s bad for you,” I’d have a lifetime supply to eat while watching Hollywood movies staring Matt Lame-on.
What if bad things are ridiculously good for us? Here are a few examples.
A jock in college is harmless. But jocks who play football can grow up to work in businesses. They are born and…
A savings account is a Picasso work of art.
You sit back, relax, put your money in each month, and get paid interest. Those were the glory days. I remember getting 5% interest on my savings account and feeling like Spiderman.
The idea of a savings account turned into a nightmare last year. The G20 list of countries created trillions of dollars and metaphorically dropped $100 bills from helicopters.
Creating more money from nothing doesn’t make us richer. It simply distorts the price of everything. The result is you think you’re getting richer when you’re actually getting poorer. …
Four years in love. A beautiful anniversary dinner, and I couldn’t eat a bite.
One of my favorite Youtubers ripped my heart out and left it on the floor still pumping blood. There were accusations of wrong-doing. Nobody believed them. There’s just no way an honest guy with a wife and kid could turn into a scammer, surely?
I didn’t want to believe it.
Another popular Youtuber, Ben Armstrong, who owns Bit Boy Crypto, released the evidence. The allegations were true. The founder of the Nugget’s News financial media outlet, Alex, had been exposed.
Alex had been caught asking for…
Inputs drown our brains.
I’m overwhelmed by inputs right now. I have some big things I want to do like get married, write a book, launch a course, go on a holiday after 18 months of sitting at home, etc.
It’s hard to do any of that when your life revolves around the internet. The internet can feel like a bar full of drunks speaking gibberish, who have no idea what they’re saying. Being online is living with the volume turned up to deafening. The noise makes you think differently.
I’m reading a finance book at the moment about the…
2021 and 2020 feel like the same year.
2021 was supposed to be a year of new hope. Where I live, we’re still in back-to-back lockdowns, likely for the rest of the year. Dealing with a health crisis is harder than we thought. It’s okay. Humans make mistakes. It’s not exactly easy to fight an invisible enemy.
The changes in the pandemic reported by Yale University mean offices are likely to remain optional.
Working from home will still be as cool as it was last year. Clothes are still optional. PJs are kickass. Coffee still raises energy levels when the…
New social media apps normally die in a horrible car crash.
Look at Clubhouse.
Literally, copied and thrown in the bin after a few months. I’ve been hearing about Web 3.0 platforms for content creators since March. I decided to take the plunge and break my rule of staying away from new apps.
You’re about to learn:
Let’s get into it.
The new platform I’m referring to is Bitclout. It’s built on blockchain and is fully decentralized. The code…
TikTok isn’t my idea of fun.
TikTok feels like cheap entertainment. You typically get less than 60 seconds of “content” and then get left feeling groped and empty. So you keep watching more. After two hours, you don’t know where the night went.
A friend sent a video to me by TikToker Jason Capital. The video is about how we go through change. He argues change makes us feel inadequate. Feeling weird is uncomfortable, so we go back to wanting to be comfortable. That’s where our phone plays a role.
Notice when you look at your notifications. It’s right after…
Online courses are booming.
We love online courses because we have a thirst to learn and grow. I do lots of online courses because I want to learn the shortcuts and not have to painfully figure out every lesson the hard way. Doing courses helps me move faster than overthinkers, who are still wondering if now is a good time to start.
I’m not here to brag about success or rub numbers in your face. I’ve launched multiple online courses that have made more than 6-figures. …
