    Competition between Entrepreneur Friends

    PEOPLE 
    I was thinking about two of my classmates back in the day in High School who were on the basketball team and top players. It's a story that always inspires me because they were on the same team for a time and then ended up as rivals playing when one was caught cheating on academics. He joined...

    Harsh Reality vs Pursuing Your Dreams

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    In the most glamorous, dream-driven niches, business models, or careers, the harsh reality is that very few people reach the top. For example, the vast majority of actors are broke. Most novelists make peanuts. Wannabe influencers will never reach the high level of success they expect. Most...

    MINDSET 
    Hey everyone, So I got into a discussion with a friend of mine and talking about Millionaire Fastlane and the ideas around it. Basically my friend is sold on the notion that whatever product you create / manufacture, it will get copied and aggressively competed with to eventually where the...

    Should I worry about getting crushed?

    So I have an idea that I believe is really good, viable, and helps people. It is something I would use, and I believe many other people would be interested in using. Of course, I dont want to say what that is, but it would save people $, and time. Let's just say I create a website with this...

    A Room Full of Opportunity (Follow up on the darn leads!)

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    I have 2 stories to share. I think it's easy to get involved in the fastlane here, and start to lose sight of how most people in the world actually are, and hopefully you can realize that it isn't actually that hard to set yourself apart from most. It really just takes some legit effort and...

    Harry Browne: Is there really no competition?

    MINDSET 
    After MJ mentioned Harry Browne and his book 'The Secret of Selling Anything', I stumbled upon his other books and I read them ('How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World' and at the moment, 'Rule your world'). He's a very impressive man and I really like his thoughts. In his books he mentions...
