    List @ The Few People who have Lamborghinis

    This is ridiculous. I could finance a Lambo tomorrow for like $2-3k/month, but that would be a huge F*cking waste of money. I think many people on that list are just financing/renting their Lambos to sell to you, anyway. In the meantime, Alice Walton drives a 13 year old car, and Zuck rocks up...

    Cyrptocurrency news: Facebook launches Libra

    This is a strawman, and a common fallacy. There's no reason to use crypto over traditional payment processing if you wanted to pay out consumers when they consume ads. They can literally do this today without any crypto. This is a huge fallacy in all things crypto. Most people say "oh wow...

    Cyrptocurrency news: Facebook launches Libra

    The biggest and only opportunities I see worth mentioning are for large corporations and Facebook itself. Maybe selling high volume low margin goods to the 1.7B unbanked people. But then you’re ethically conceding that FB should be doing this, when they shouldn’t. It’s also giving FB complete...

    Remote job labor arbitrage

    That's not the most ethical way to do business, is it? Your entire revenue stream and livelihood is built around lying to people who are trusting you. It might be possible, but do you really want to be the kind of person that literally lives a lie?

    GOLD! Doing $75,000 USD Per WEEK (Service Business)

    Just because a thread is marked GOLD by a relative stranger doesn't mean it's relevant for you, or that you should take its advice. Don't forget the adage of "Trust, but verify". If you can't verify, let that impact how much you can trust. If a source of advice or information doesn't sit right...

    Should I learn digital marketing or coding as a 17yo?

    I believe I misinterpreted your statement to mean "You can be good at one or the other but not both". I don't think that's actually what you meant. My apologies. :innocent: :halo: We definitely agree on pursuing your strengths and those things to which one is naturally drawn. I believe I am...

    Should I learn digital marketing or coding as a 17yo?

    With respect, I can't agree with this statement. I personally do both very successfully. I'm a high paid programmer working on software products that impact millions of people...and I have has also successfully marketed products and affiliate offers, including getting 4000 email signups for a...

    Plant-Based Opportunities / Vegan Business Opportunities

    I agree. That's definitely an example of "adapting away from Veganism" in the way I intended it. What it means to "adapt away from Veganism" will depend on your product, marketing and positioning...and the intensity of a recoil away from Veganism (if any).

    Plant-Based Opportunities / Vegan Business Opportunities

    Unfortunately there are no metrics for those who adopt it as a lifestyle vs. a diet. But we can infer that most of these people who started eating Vegan up until this point also adopted the lifestyle. That's because early adopters tend to be those who adopt based on purpose and ideology. At...

    Plant-Based Opportunities / Vegan Business Opportunities

    You've both done a great job at making the case that many people who go Vegan do so for reasons that are vastly different from those reasons that most people choose diets. For those reasons, I think you're right that it is robustly different from a purely dietary trend. I'm still not seeing...

    Plant-Based Opportunities / Vegan Business Opportunities

    Maybe. But you can't take advantage of a trend from the future. I think anyone getting into Veganism as a business opportunity right now is smart. I think that anyone starting a Veganism based business, and not planning an appropriate adaptation away from Veganism within the next 3 years is...

    Plant-Based Opportunities / Vegan Business Opportunities

    I may be totally wrong here, but I think you and many others are falling prey to a cognitive bias that's pervasive in the diet space. The idea that a particular way of eating is a "lifestyle" that's "been around a long time" is not new. Paleo and Keto can make the same claims. Paleo was...

    Plant-Based Opportunities / Vegan Business Opportunities

    I agree that it will last generations for those reasons. I just don't see it being a mainstream way that most people live...whether that's food or overall lifestyle. I think it will explode into a diet trend, with an ultimate peaking bubble soon to come, then recess back to a small niche...

    Plant-Based Opportunities / Vegan Business Opportunities

    I'm not sure I agree. I've kept a close eye on diet trends for the past 15+ years or so, and Veganism's story arc is remarkably similar to other similar movements. The pattern is this: 1. A small group champion the idea. 2. Mainstream talks trash about it. 3. Junk science comes forward to...

    A Comprehensive Guide To Learning Web Development

    As someone who has done a lot of hiring and interviewing (on both sides of the table), I would strongly advise against learning either of those frameworks as the first port of call. They don't have the market share to open up meaningful contracting or employment opportunities. As a learner...
