    INTRO Looking for advice "How to Start Side Hustle, Exercise, Me Time while holding Full time Job"

    Ive never understood this, time is not the issue, your time management is. I built my companies, invested in rentals, went to college full time, worked full time, and worked out + hung out with friends all at once. I prioritized my needs and I worked things into each other to make it work...

    NOTABLE! The Coming Recession (2018-2019?)

    I don't think there would be a war. It doesn't benefit anyone. I can't see how the US dollar would ever take a backseat to any other currency even if China and Russia come to an agreement. The only variable that may in the future would be some sort of decentralized currency but even then it...

    NOTABLE! The Coming Recession (2018-2019?)

    This would never happen and if it ever came close we'd have much bigger problems than the economy. The US prints as much currency as they desire and in doing so can finance and control the largest military in the world. If we run into catastrophic fiscal problems they will hit the reset button...

    NOTABLE! The MAIN difference between someone who makes 100k /year and someone who makes 1m?

    Timing, Business Model, Scale The guys that I know that make 1M+ have a different view of business. They also own infinitely scalable companies. A guy who owns a storage facility may very well earn over 100k/year and be a millionaire but he's limited to his one facility and local area. The...

    I wouldn't complicate it. Private label what is currently selling under other brands. One of the brands I am launching right now is a direct replica of a company that just got bought out by a private equity firm. I believe I can outperform them on Amazon in various niches (and piece them apart)...

    Thanks! So I've worked at my job for four years under my mentor and I've been hesitant to leave because I really like everyone here and it's a good job. But I came to the decision that with my businesses growth I need to leave and focus on that. So i'll be leaving in the next 3 months but...

    EXECUTION Creation of my Self-Help Brand

    I say it bluntly in hopes to get a point across, not to be rude to you. You're right, the idea is not unique and you could totally spend months, years creating content for your idea. But my point is you don't have the credibility to do so. Why would I listen to you over Tim Ferris or Aubrey...

    EXECUTION Creation of my Self-Help Brand

    What have you done? You're regurgitating what Tony Robbins, Tim Ferriss and every other self help wanna be has done. No one wants to take advice from someone who has not accomplished anything. You're better off building something that adds to your credibility, become a actual millionaire, live...

    Figured I'd update this thread since it's been a while. The equity within my real estate investments/accounts and the value of my business makes me a millionaire at 24. Never had a handout. Never sold a bs course. Never sold something I wasnt proud of. Bootstrapped it all. Thank you @MJ...

    Yeah, Create a library of canned email responses in slack and slowly hand off repetitive emails and teach them how to respond on a case by case scenario. Any escalated or complex emails would go to you until they are competent

    Frugality and lack of knowledge + thinking your the only one capable to execute the task properly. I have all those problems. And im not wrong, most people cant do things the way I do them and wont do them to the level I can. But letting go and allowing that person to become competent is...
