    Listening to 'Sell or be sold' by Grant Cardone... ...and I have never come across a book as damn awful as this. Wow! Cardone is a closing machine but he should never be allowed to write a book again. In fact, I don't think he even wrote this audible book. He just talks and talks and talks...

    GOLD! I've Read The Millionaire Fastlane!

    I read Unscripted before TMF. I should give it another read now that my mind is more attuned. Thanks again for the books, MJ. You is a good person.

    Just finished listening to The Millionaire Fastlane on Audible... now reading another book and my internal reading voice reads it in MJ's voice. Makes it more interesting to be honest.

    OFF-TOPIC Does anyone else find social media boring?

    You're not alone. It is absolutely awful. I'm 26 and I'm so tired of it. It's a world full of fake people where context doesn't matter. It's no wonder young people are more likely to be depressed and have anxiety. You just scroll through your feed aimlessly. You're like a zombie. Thing is, we...

    OFF-TOPIC Buzzfeed: Tony Robbins accused of sexual misconduct

    BuzzFeed is internet cancer. It's racist, sexist, steals content, and serves no purpose. It just generally needs to be stopped.

    GOLD! I've Read The Millionaire Fastlane!

    I've listened to it. This is the first audio book I've listened to and it did not disappoint. Not sure which I like more, TMF or Unscripted, but it's not a competition to be honest. They're both great. What I love about both books is the advice is blunt and too the point. With so much...

    It's a three day weekend where I am, and of course people are salivating over it. Heck, someone in my office even waved his arms in the air expressing his excitement. How can they not see the reality that they're not celebrating an extra day off, but they're actually celebrating an extra day of...

    GOLD! Moved to Scottsdale, Growing a Web Design Firm

    That's really cool. Well done. And I feel you. That sounds like how I feel about my current situation. Except my background isn't banking but legal. I spent so much time being a wantrepreneur but now I leave work right on 5, come home, and just work. Refuse to let myself go to bed before I've...

    GOLD! Moved to Scottsdale, Growing a Web Design Firm

    Did you know anything about web design beforehand? I can't imagine a banker knowing a great deal on web design on paper, which makes your story all the more impressive. To be honest, I have a somewhat similar service to yours. I sell web design services but I outsource it to a friend of mine...

    Actual conversation I had today. Me: 'You're really smart. Cut out your company and get your money you deserve. You should do freelancing.' Them: 'Nah, I like having the security.' Me: '...10 people got fired from your office last month.' Them: 'Yeah, but...<conversation goes elsewhere>'...

    GOLD! Moved to Scottsdale, Growing a Web Design Firm

    What an amazing thread! Great story. Well done for smashing it in the face. I looked up Scottsdale online and I can see why people want to live there. I've been to Arizona before and had fond memories. Can I ask, why did you go into web design? You've done great going from banking to web...

    NOTABLE! What book are you reading? Right now. Post up!

    Listening to TMF - loving it! Almost finished it. Taking advice handed out on here and in the books and looking for something on audible that will help me solve the problem in front of me. Can anyone recommend their best books on sales? My sales is rusty.

    Knowing when to keep pushing vs knowing when to stop

    I know what you are saying, but in that situation that person could then just read a few quotes and a few YouTube motivation videos and convinced they're an entrepreneur solving problems and ignoring the naysayers. I guess when you leave a pursuit behind it's more of a mental change from 'I'm...

    Knowing when to keep pushing vs knowing when to stop

    Just a side note to say that this isn't an issue that I'm facing, I'm just genuinely curious and looking to learn.

    Knowing when to keep pushing vs knowing when to stop

    I ask this with genuine curiosity, not to be negative. When starting a business, how do you differentiate between when you have a good idea that you need to keep pushing and persevering with, compared to when your idea is stupid? You drown out the negative talks and surround yourself with...
