    HOT TOPIC How hard is it to actually find a good business idea?

    I have a different perspective on ideas. The more simple, and the more they look like a one-time-need, there is a chance that you will have the most amount of them. But for launching long-term businesses that can scale into millions is harder. I'm more convinced we're only getting there by...

    HOT TOPIC At what age did you start to get your shit together?

    19 when I started was running after women. Then learned how to channel ambition into long term goals. But I think the real question is: How did you start to get educated? In school, you are educated as part of a generic group. You are assumed to be generic and reduced to a number. To have...

    Looking for Connections in Asset Management

    It's great to meet you, Kevin. I hope you can succeed to. Please keep me updated on any changes on this environment. Because I worked alone for many years I have a very modest networking around this field. It's usually hard to find people to talk about these ideas. And when you find them, they...

    GOLD! Is CENTS Destructive to Action?

    I just saw Instagram apparently removed their likes counter. Completely ruined most influencers' metric. Control commandment calling here.

    HOT TOPIC Let’s be real: If you're over 35, you don't have a chance.

    I was actually looking for a solid argument but there isn't. It should be clear that waiting too long until you are 35 is just not living with enough ambition. But as you haven't defined what field of success you were referring to there isn't much to be said. Looking at your age and trying to...

    Strategic Advice Required on How to Scale

    Perhaps nothing else is making me go nuts other than not being able to scale. I've lost some money on a few attempts. But the money I lost, to me, is nothing compared to the reflection that I am being subjected to. Seems like I am missing on an strategic piece in order to get profits that would...

    MEETUPS Accredited Investors

    Sounds like it's a lot harder than I imagined. The best I could offer are the verified results. It's actually trading performance with long/short trades and these get into the same category for investors who invest in hedge funds. The SEC (regulator) has some rules for this. But I have never...

    MEETUPS Accredited Investors

    Sorry for bumping this but I am looking for an investors group very badly. Do you have any of these groups to recommend me? It's an investment that I have to offer with daily liquidity (not year lock-up) and generating roughly 15% annualized with 4% down side risk per year.

    NOTABLE! Billionaire Ray Dalio: Meditation is ‘the single most important reason' for my success

    There might be too much hype on mediation, I believe. I've come to notice that, in the mind, having laser piercing, sociopathic focus is a very similar experience to meditation when you feel your own breath. Which is the focus you want to crush it. But also more likely, is that, Ray Dalio...

    Facebook Down!

    I'm glad you are actually talking about marketing and opportunities rather than just the typical facebook scrolling habit. I was surprised to see how this was perceived by all of you who commented before.

    NOTABLE! Growing your Instagram account, strategy and discussion

    Hey, I have little experience with social media. I would like to hear an elaboration on this idea. Is it really that bad? If you think about it, facebook itself is just a machine that people expect to use, just as any other media. I never felt like they had so much power though. It's more like...

    NOTABLE! Growing your Instagram account, strategy and discussion

    Hey, is that the algorithm of instagram that classifies your page as actively engaged? Or is it just you calling it engaged by your definition?

    HOT TOPIC Instagram Management: How I manage a few clients' Instagram and make almost $8k/month

    I'm about to start working with this but for other business in multiple countries. My main concerns were getting the specific photos that would suit their businesses. Everything from copywriting, developing web pages, collecting e-mails and editing photos, would be already handled by my own...

    Commandment of control question.

    In the scope of strategy Control could be thought of also as being able to have other options. A degree of independence that doesn't bring you back to the zero point. No amount of volatility (if you are familiar with financial markets) will kill you totally. If a company doesn't want business...

    Would you still start an idea if you're not sure how big the need is?

    To be honest, there is something I've adopted from Nassim Taleb, the author, which is... To keep track of all your variables is a tough job. What a lot of us will tell ourselves is to focus on what we can control. For that, if there is a way to keep the downside low and upside high, no matter...

    Hey, So, if perhaps is any of you a creator, someone with a creative project in mind, a business idea or project that would go for places like Kickstarter, I've been looking for some of you. My team and I have developed a platform for gathering media data from creators with creative ideas and...

    HOT TOPIC How deep does this "FAKE GURU" market actually go?

    I think an explosion of these gurus just comes down to the fact that, If you want success and you come from a middle class family, you can't start up on a high budget and you must make the most of what you believe that you know. Now many people can go too far with this idea. If you have...
