    NOTABLE! Audiobooks - Reclaiming your time

    I've worked up my listening speed to about 2.5-3.5X (depends on how fast the narrator is) over the past 3 or 4 years. Anything below 2.5 feels slow and will get me distracted. Will explain shortly. First let's borrow a principle from speed reading. The logic is that the faster you read the more...

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

    Hi Tourmaline. Have you already signed up for "Facebook Ad Buyers" group on Facebook? Probably the best place to lurk around and absorb info on the subject and ask questions, generally the people there can be helpful given you've already done some research on your own

    BOOK Man's Search for Meaning, by Viktor Frankl

    Sry went off topic before. Regarding the book. I read it a few years ago. Powerful story on it's own. One of the key takeaways I still remember and found valuable in this book was the notion of how you should take the worse thing that ever happened to you and figure out how it was a positive...

    BOOK Man's Search for Meaning, by Viktor Frankl

    Like with anything it takes a process, a series of micro events that eventually lead to a macro change. Reading 1 book one time probably wont change much. But reading 1 book a week for a year or two or three will definetly see some change in you. It is said that your life looks like an average...

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

    It's a math game. For me "Unscripted" put something very important in perspective, what's the most important number in the 1 Million/year equation? 2740 USD. Since everyone knows what I'm on about won't dive into that more. So I think anyone with enough hustle to crack 100k/year in profits has...

    GOLD! How To Find (Non-Public) Email Addresses

    Yeah for sure, completely changed my approach after reading it. Was awkward as f*** at first but the results speak for itself. Also does wonders if you redo your sales strategy in for example websites with the standard approach of guiding prospects through a "yes" funnel.

    GOLD! How To Find (Non-Public) Email Addresses

    Also if you are hunting for personal e-mails then a good trick is hidden in Twitter. If you log out of your account and your target has a twitter account then go to "forgot my password" and insert the user name of the target. 70% of the time it will give you part of the email, where it gives you...

    Trying to post useful general purpose stuff for fellow Fastlaners

    A hack/tip for scrolling through this forum. So from time to time I stumble upon threads that are 10,20 etc pages long. There's no real point to read through all of the posts in a thread. So what I do is only look at posts made by the OP or other relevant/high profile users. Usually the OP...
