    Is Copywriting Dying? - The ClickBait Is A Real Danger

    Hmm... three things as I see it: 1. Their copywriting/marketing will only kill their BS product/whatever they promote. 2. Good copywritinf will catch and hook people's attention. Your job now is to avoid #1 (don't sell/advertise crap!) 3. Clickbaits usually have the same structure and same...

    I'd l I'd like to look at The Warrior Ethos. Seems interesting! Quench Your Own Thirst sounds interesting, too, but I'll go first with the Warrior Ethos!

    I Hate the Idea of Being Equal!

    Equality is good until you see yourself working hard, but you and your lazy neighbor get the same results... who wants that? Lol. Only the lazy benefits from equality. The hardworking and pioneering are punished by this. But as you pointed out, we should have an equal starting point (equal...

    FAILURE I failed miserably but I'm enjoying it

    Hello Lukas, I can say that at your age, most people won't even think about building a business to solve a problem - now, let alone finding a manufacturer, build a prototype, do all marketing and networking efforts, etc., etc. You've done a lot, and I know you know it. ;) Anyway, why not try...

    When do you realize you are getting sold (Scammed)

    I learned not to listen too much on "motivational" or "inspirational" talks. I also don't buy their book just because it's a bestseller. I learned to always look on the content, what will I actually learn here rather than the feel-good motivation it brings. Sure, feel-good stuffs boost you...

    When do you realize you are getting sold (Scammed)

    Robert Kiyosaki is my first "mentor" to entrepreneurship and money through his book, RDPD. Sadly, after RDPD and Cashflow Quadrant, none of his content (books) had added any value - his message just gets repeated and repeated, again and again, though with a few additions here and there. Who...

    "Assumption is the mother of all F*ck-ups." - This quote was said to be engraved in an army general's table.

    Quote of the Day - QOTD

    @Aimee, This reminds me that even if you didn't start (building your business/career/etc.), you can still start building it today. Now. And don't waste this time you have. Great. :)

    Should I be worried about capitalism changing? Or am I overthinking it?

    I didn't know the word "capitalism" was coined by the Marxists. Thanks for that! Yes, that's true. Marxists believe that if the environment is a major factor in the attitude of a person. So he's like wanting to "re-engineer" the society for his utopic vision. On the other hand, Marx talks...

    Should I be worried about capitalism changing? Or am I overthinking it?

    To think about it, capitalism (together with ideologies founded by liberty like democracy) is the only ideology that truly liberated people so far. As mentioned before, common people won't do well in pre-capitalist societies. A serf will always be a serf. He can't "strike out on his own" and...

    Should I be worried about capitalism changing? Or am I overthinking it?

    This should be a required reading in every humanities/social science courses and degrees. As far as my experience goes, those courses praises leftist ideologies but doesn't give any justice to rightist or even centrist philosophies. We are taught Marxism. We are even required to read Marx's...

    Should I be worried about capitalism changing? Or am I overthinking it?

    The government WILL play a role, but you're mostly right. Unless you're in a country with collapsed economy or under a heavy dictatorship (think of North Korea), you have a chance to be in the Fastlane/be a Fastlaner. I also worry about these, too. Here in the Philippines, at least based on...

    Should I be worried about capitalism changing? Or am I overthinking it?

    I read somewhere that monarchies (before) actually hate capitalism because it threatens their class structure where the monarch can safely safeguard his throne. Hmmm... I just realize it. At least for the Russians, communists didn't fought capitalism but monarchy. And clearly they're different...

    Should I be worried about capitalism changing? Or am I overthinking it?

    Yes, win-win is the premise of capitalism. Even if we give way to the fact that capitalism has holes out of human imperfection - corporate greed, rip offs, irresponsibility to workers, customers and environment, among others - only capitalism so far gives every people a chance to pull...

    Should I be worried about capitalism changing? Or am I overthinking it?

    I also worry about that. But like @MJ DeMarco said, it shouldn't block you from being an entrepreneur. After all, the USA is founded on liberty and capitalism has always been an integral part in American life. So despite some population want to change the current system, some Americans, "real"...

    How to learn to give without wanting anything in return?

    Very true. One of my big frustrations is driving. Counterflow here, swerve there, cut here and there... plus of course the annoying beeeeeeeepppppppp!!! I actually grew frustrated in driving over time because of this. But whenever someone allows me to pass, or gives me the way, I feel good. I...

    INTRO No idea why I'm here, will I find out?

    Hello. It seems to me you're more of an "artist/creator" than a "businessman", though you do recognize the business side or art/creation. And it seems you want to go to business merely for the sake of making money and being free? It's the story of many of us anyway, so that's pretty normal...
