    INTRO Intro from a newbie stuck in the corporate prison

    Short term sacrifice for long term results. There's nothing wrong with living in the Slowlane while building a Fastlane road trip in the meantime. In my early 20s I lived alone in motels ($50 per 24 hours bad), and back at my parents's house while saving every penny I made and simultaneously...

    BOOK The 10x Rule by Grant Cardone - Crazy or Brilliant?

    I don't know much about Grant Cardone, but I think I remember that his business models involve loads and loads of debt, which isn't necessarily bad, but not ideal either IMO.

    One thing all successful entrepreneurs seem to have in common

    Making moves, taking action, learning, adapting to changes, and execution go without saying. Which is why I didn't say it. I was making a general observation about the personalities of those around me. And Reality is not perception which is why I gave it a capital R.

    When to stop Facebook Ad? Why do Ads stop being effective when only a small percentage of an audience has seen it?

    Market the hell out of it at first, and if you can keep selling without continuing to spend money on advertising the market will respond. People will keep buying it even though you're discontinuing spending money on advertising (you've got a great service/product), or it will fall off the face...

    One thing all successful entrepreneurs seem to have in common

    I have plenty of friends and acquaintances who are very successful entrepreneurs and business owners as well as many other self-made millionaires that seem to have a very specific trait in common. At least 90% of them seem to be able to "see themselves" and their current place in Reality. I've...

    When to stop Facebook Ad? Why do Ads stop being effective when only a small percentage of an audience has seen it?

    The best products/services sell themselves because of intrinsic value. The selling is inherent and organic, without need for the reaching that FB ads (and ads in general) stand for.

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

    Yes. In the forward the editors explained that this was an unpublished manuscript he had written in the 1980s or 1990s, given to the publisher by his wife after he had died.

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

    What I like about this book is that it really highlights the aspect of putting the customer first and foremost in business endeavors. Looking at everything from their perspective. The author owned and operated the largest psychiatry practice in New York and was a self-made multimillionaire. It...

    Learn from my mistake

    I hope this failure of mine can be served as a warning to anyone who might fall into the same scam I found myself in. A few years ago, I was on Wish.com comparing their prices to those of the same items on Ebay and Amazon for the purposes of re-selling or "flipping". I came across a cologne...

    Doing the Andy Frisella "75 Hard" Challenge

    My routine is already similar to this, although I drink red wine here and there. As far as the twice-a-day workout goes, for nearly two years now, every day I walk 3 miles, do an upper body workout in the morning and a lower body workout in the evening. Throughout the day I probably drink at...

    Why we aren't successful and what to do about it - The TURBO MINDSET thread

    Personally, I think a lot of common struggles going from sidewalker/slowlaner to fastlaner is almost ALWAYS a matter of mentality; the only 3 other reasons in my opinion is winning the lottery (good luck), inheriting wealth (good luck), or being a really successful criminal (not recommended...

    Marijuana / Medical Cannabis Industry and Their Stocks

    ACB (Aurora) looks like a relatively strong stock with a pretty decent competitive advantage, given its sector. I bought in a few months ago at $7, currently at $9. Going long on it, so far haven't been disappointed.
