    RANT Random Chat, Thoughts, Posts, and/or Rants Thread

    I don't fully agree with this. (F*** you guys keep making come back there. They pull me back in.) A senior member should, and probably has a duty to offer some course. They have insight the rest of us don't. Andy's course comes to mind. You can find all of his knowledge in his posts, but he's...

    Thank you for your kind words Dave. I'm often in the Tampa area, and I'll buy you a beer one day. I respect many of you and this is one of the few places left online where I can just "hang out." Reflecting on my post, I lashed out because I expect more from myself. I'm looking for a reason to...

    RANT Random Chat, Thoughts, Posts, and/or Rants Thread

    I'm taking a break from this forum. I know no one cares and this post will fall to the wayside. I haven't established my credibility for various reasons. I'm more-so reflecting on my recent post related to health issues, and I've used this place as a way to vent, tbh. My biggest gripe is the...

    OFF-TOPIC I Think I'm on the Autism Spectrum, and I Don't Want to Admit It.

    Nearly 2 years ago, my doctor friends asked me if I had high functioning autism. Which I laughed off as probably, with deprecating humor. I knew I was always "different." I hate authority with a passion! But I will respect them, because I'm an authority in my own right, by being an employer. I...

    Up 175%+ on fiverr, WWYD?

    I haven't looked at FVRR, but what's their game plan? I know they had a cash injection a while back, but that's the extent of my knowledge. How much I'm up on stocks is irrelevant. What's the company outlook? This year I stopped trading on numbers or chart patterns, and instead went with...

    I've contacted nearly 30 real estate agents and apartment leasing centers over the past 3 months. I've gotten on the phone with 2 people so far. This one place has a 40% vacancy rate, at the moment. The have offers like, we'll waive your app fee, your first month is free and we'll pay half of...

    RANT Functional Illiteracy Is Spreading Across the World

    Here's my 2¢ from both sides: 1. As an ambitious freelancer/employee: I'm not a natural leader, unless I have to be. But what I will do is come in as more of a partner, with the understanding and respect that this is your vision. I want to do the task you set at hand and at the same time, you...

    HOT TOPIC Dan Pena's system

    Basically. He does something akin to a hostile takeover. Buying debts and forcing people out of their companies over threat of bankrupting them. Not a pretty sight, though the morality aspect is a discussion for another day. A prime example is EIG, in my industry. They bought a bunch of...

    Swearing on YouTube

    I think it's a calculated move GV's part. A lot of what he lets on about is masking his true intentions. As he's always saying, watch what he does, not what he says.... so .... "I don't sell you anything, it's all free. I expect nothing in return." At the same time he's making a couple mill$...

    HOT TOPIC Dan Pena's system

    no. It's called a roll up, and it happens all the time in the vc world. I read his book and it's a fantastic read. He definitely stretches the truth on basically all of his stories. See next comment... You pool the resources together and cut costs. Imagine having a person answering the...

    HOT TOPIC Fortnite/Minecraft Thoughts

    This reminds me. Look into loot boxes. They're basically hooking kids on gambling. Super dangerous stuff, and I can't believe it's still legal in most countries. Most f2p games have them. Love me some RTS. Command and Conquer was just released, remastered. I've spent a lot of time thinking...

    HOT TOPIC Fortnite/Minecraft Thoughts

    I want to see a video of you destroying your kids in fortnite, then turning to them saying, get good scrubs. Dropping the mouse and walking away. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: I'm dying picturing it.

    HOT TOPIC What Do Productive People Do?

    I think there are multiple success equations. And they are loooooooooooong. That's why people don't implement them. You ever see those interviews, where some multi-millionaire is like, Yeah, I do xyz on a daily basis and apply method 123, which is how I can make 20 profitable businesses.

    Every site I used to visit as a relaxing read in the morning, for current events and science, has been overrun by astroturfing propaganda. From both sides. Most community centric websites have become the same swamp a$$ garbage as cable TV programming.
