    Who was your biggest inspiration or your favorite businessperson/entrepreneur (other than MJ of course)?

    Before I read Millionaire Fastlane I was really big on Sam Walton of Wal-Mart fame. Yours?

    I was gonna post this exact thread!

    I’ve had it in the back of my mind for over a week now..

    but you should change it to “Your favorite Entrepreneur and why”

    Me? Elon Musk, Steve Jobs and Jay-z.. I’ll state why in a bit (busy)

    I would love to emulate Warren Buffett some day.

    Also, I’m a big fan of Mark Cuban. Many, many years ago I sent him an email after I saw him on the cover of a small magazine. He actually replied to me a day later. I thought that was the coolest thing ever.

    In the 90s, it was Bill Gates. I even set a photo of him as my Windows 98 wallpaper back then.
    Now it's Kevin O Leary, the founder of Lululemon and the founder of Razer.

    Favorite: Peter Diamandis

    Since "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" is my bible in a way, I evaluate people by how far they have moved up "the ladder of personal growth" and apply the concepts: Proactivity -> Leadership -> Management -> Win-Win Thinking -> Understand Others / Be Understood -> Synergizing -> Continuous Improvement and Adjustments

    Peter Diamandis comes in first, Elon only second because he at least tries to inspire others to synergize, collaborate and become leaders and get synergy going. Peter's companies also tackle crazy ambitious things.
    He does subscribe to the "competition first, collaboration as an additional gimmick" thinking to some degree, but there is an obvious understanding of "Interdependence over Independence" thinking and he propagates that with his books.

    Also like Carmack (when he talks about thinking big:
    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyjJrF2gJ34
    more so than when he executes)

    My ex wifes father Hans Michelsen from Hamburg.He worked his a$$ off manufacturing and installing double glazed windows then decided to just order them. The government opened a place nearby for yearly motor car inspections so he set up a number plate facility and a cafe called Hanswurst and made a mint . His factory he rented out space to an Italian drinks company. So he made money from.the cafe the liicence plates, the windows and the storage space. Not sure if I explained that well enough but he was so cool.

    eben Pagan

    the guy is a Mastermind ( rational strategist ) with very very high determination


    i have studied his life, this is insane what he can produce

    INSANE

    in fact he is so determined that this is not human

    he is more like a machine .

    these guys have to be feared because when they want something , they will get it

    we are talking about business here

    but Masterminds in other area of life can be very dangerous with this kind or determination:

    politicians, serial killers, gurus etc


    most people live through the day like robots . they don't work in a logical manner to achieve a long term goal. they are used by life instead of using it


    the power of Masterminds in society can be compared to the power of the average human above apes or cattle

    Every anonymous entrepreneur, not mentioned anywhere in papers. Not a rockstar. The one(s) that daily make the world revolve, but are unknown to the general public, because they don't want to be known, because they don't need to be seen as a rock star. Humble first.
