    HOT TOPIC The worst book I ever read was..

    I rather enjoyed Rich Dad, Poor Dad for those same reasons. The information wasn't new to me, but the perspective was one that was not often shared. At this point I want a good book for the new generation of Millennials and Entitlement mentality people (not always the same people BTW) that...

    HOT TOPIC The worst book I ever read was..

    By far my least favorite book that was the biggest waste of time for me was "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle. I was full of mumbled bullshit that was just a series of crappy run on sentences from someone on a poor spiritual high. I have never felt I wasted more time now, int he past, future...

    HOT TOPIC The worst book I ever read was..

    Interestingly all 3 of those books provided a thing of value for me that was actionable or helpful. My startups were all Lean but seeing some of the ideals codified was a help. Think and Grow Rich I read as a child and it made me think differently about money which in a sense kicked off some of...

    OFF-TOPIC I hate rich bastards (but I want to be one) Paradox?

    Thank you. I really well versed in cars and mechanics as it were being the kind of hobby I dug into, but I just never got into the truck side. I used to watch tractor pulls and thought those beasts were amazing though. Anyway I will keep you in mind if I dig into the sand truck thing. It sounds...

    OFF-TOPIC I hate rich bastards (but I want to be one) Paradox?

    I should be clear in that he didn't do it to my face. He was talking to his lady at the bar waiting for his reservation while I was sitting at my table nearby. Maybe he was telling whoever else would listen to him. I don't really know. It was kind of surreal. As for trucks I never got into...

    OFF-TOPIC I hate rich bastards (but I want to be one) Paradox?

    For me it was summed up in one fateful restaurant visit. I went to a fairly nice restaurant in Kansas City. Beautiful city with a great arts and food scene so I highly recommend a visit there. Anyway, the restaurant had a valet and I was driving one of my rarer sports cars. Maybe flashy, but it...

    OFF-TOPIC I hate rich bastards (but I want to be one) Paradox?

    I found it was usually a mix of jealousy and negative media portrayal of money that make people hate. They see things like Housewives series, media news, world events, sports stars and draw some conclusion that for rich people everything is a petty game and people don't matter. Interesting is...

    OFF-TOPIC Hobbies of high and low income individuals

    I don't have to be disciplined anymore. I can take all the time I want for it. However I also value my time more than the game so there in lies the discipline. I will occasionally play a game for extended periods, but the game doesn't own me. I eventually want to do something more valuable with...

    OFF-TOPIC Hobbies of high and low income individuals

    OK I never watched a whole lot of TV growing up but I do get caught up watching movies a fair bit. I do admit to a few guilty pleasures regarding TV: Game of Thrones Westworld The Orville (you can stop judging me now) Stranger Things Now I am all caught up on those, and outside the strange...

    OFF-TOPIC Hobbies of high and low income individuals

    You can really see a bit about it in my intro post. I have built and sold several software companies with my last exit Sept '16. Mostly I go fishing, but sometimes I try different things. I do enjoy Software Dev a lot and building businesses around good ideas. Currently I am helping a wonderful...

    OFF-TOPIC Hobbies of high and low income individuals

    Well I was referring to the $100 hamburger for flying to various airports and having to rent the airplane and fuel to do it. But if someone wants to pay me to fly, well then.. that becomes a job to me. I might not like it as much. I love driving though. I have only raced around SCCA events and...

    OFF-TOPIC Hobbies of high and low income individuals

    I lived in Japan for 13 years (younger life with a Military father). My wife is Japanese so we often return and my last business worked closely with Docomo, Sony, and NEC. So I have a few perspectives from childhood through business and family. So here goes. 1. Go to the typical tourist...

    OFF-TOPIC Hobbies of high and low income individuals

    My drug of choice has been boating and sports cars. I can drive for hours and hours going no where at all if the car is compelling enough. Lately I started learning to fly since I want to airport hop around and maybe do the $100 Hamburger thing. $100 hamburger - Wikipedia for reference. In any...

    EXECUTION Personal Challenge: 1 Month To Impossible Success

    Final Update As you all know I have been fairly silent on the forum. There are several reasons for this, not the least of which a major life event occurred in my family. All is well now, but it took a lot out of me the last couple weeks. Needless to say for me family first and I am fortunate I...

    How to offer eBook? Downloadable PDF? Kindle/Mac?

    I really haven't seen that program. Most of my eBooks are very simple and I have a strong pattern I follow for them. I did try to put templates and use iBooks Creator in the Mac but it didn't really do what I wanted. Right now the way I have myself setup is I dictate everything I want for an...

    How to offer eBook? Downloadable PDF? Kindle/Mac?

    I love that. It is a super smart way to do it. I have links in mine all the same as well. I never once thought about pirating the books, but the content gets rewritten and links changed on certain ones which is where the problems come in. It is minor and those particular products are not all the...
