Actually if you look at the research, statistically people with really high net worth are more likely to drive modest cars and live in modest homes.
High net worth and modest are both relative.

The people I know that make me look poor tend to drive nice cars like Lexus and Mercedes. The bigger ones, not the cheesy entry ones that the 30k millionaires fight over. They also live in $2-10m homes in the elite neighborhoods. A lot of times that is not their only home either. They send each kid to 30k per year private school. They don’t really peacock because everyone around them is also rich.

Mate of mine had a Lambo and some nice Audi, I forget which. Said it was quite stressful, he would always be worrying about it when he parked up and ended up hardly taking it out because of that. Also said it was harder (more expensive) to keep than to get into a Lambo.

Anyway, he now drives some clapped out hatchback and loves it.

Not super relevant, just wanted to comment like the cool kids.

Jets are investments in your business, I think they are way better than a flashy car. Speaking of cost... A VLJ like a CJ1 or Beech Premier including financing and without a flight department, assuming you fly it yourself... About $400k a year minimum.

In my opinion, the bigger the Jet, the bigger the write off. Give me the 4-5m dollar a year Gulfstream and 65 million of up front bonus depreciation.
Yes definitely an investment like how Grant Cardone uses it.

Factor in not having to deal with the headache of airports, checkpoints, and delays... it ends up being a no brainer when you're at that level.

Why on earth would you waste your time on something so irrelevant?

PS: I don't own a Lambo any longer, and haven't for a while.
I've been driving a Toyota for 14 years, too. The same one. Her name is Bessie, and she has a tough chin.
@Ismails, I get your point, and I can confirm, don't listen to me because I am not financially free, but please, DO NOT tell Bessie that you only appreciate Lamborghinis. I tell her all the time what a beautiful, good girl she is, and I think you might hurt her feelings.

Find a better way to measure who is worth getting advice from.

People who have owned Lambos in this very thread are telling you this is not a great use of your time.

Maybe in real life meeting people who own a Lambo could help you connect with people thinking on a higher level (some of the time) but to use this as the only measurement of who to listen to about success is dangerous.

Marketers know that a Lambo adds authority so some people you should NOT be listening to are going to get one just for that reason. The fact you respect this car so much is the very reason so many scammers are going to be flaunting theirs.

It sucks cause lots of genuine really cool people (like MJ and Andy Frisella) have/had Lambos but many other not so trustworthy people do also.

If you want to START with looking at people who drive supercars BUT ALSO have an additional standard that would work much better...

"Has a Lambo AND has built a seven-figure separate to what he is selling me on" for example.

This would leave good influences on your list and remove your classic 26-year-old IG guru.

Keep the Lambo list if you want BUT add some other criteria. Otherwise, you are in for big trouble.

Also, @G_Alexander on this very forum is under 30 and has owned more than one Lambo. He has documented most of his journey on here. Go start with reading his threads and taking notes.

Am I the only one who actually likes this guy? It's really cool to drive a lambo

I don't have a Lamborghini.
No I like him too. I recently hired a new Financial Advisor, and rather than asking him for references or qualifications, I went out and made sure he drove an Audi.

I also make sure they know Black Magic.

Fox,

Man I love your reply.
I know my learning measure is not even part of average but I did think about like this below

Like in Health/Fitness, there are 2 Measures - (For Hypothetical Example):
Qualitative Measures: Stress Level, Energy Level, Sleep Hours, Hunger Status, Body Image/Self Esteem, Strength
Quantitative Measures: 90 Days/3 Months/12 Weeks from now: Your Weight would be 180 lbs to 160lbs = Do the Exercise & get the Result

Basically what I did.
I started to think like a fisherman
I casted a wide net in the ocean and made a list of Lambo & Bentley
I was keeping my eyes on Whale People, not fish people.
Even though I admit I am the Fish in the ocean
I was not judging average fish people
I was studying Lambo Whale People

The List I made, it was main purpose is to research & study about Lambo people
That's it
Plain & Simple

If I want a lambo for myself, I will take lambo advice from who already have lambo in their disposal = It makes sense
If I approach a Person who has Honda Civic, and start asking advice about Lambo = It does not make sense

A better approach would be just study people who are wealthy. But this has been done ad nauseam.

Thread 1

Thread 2

Again, it's been studied. Sometimes with scientific rigor.

You don't want a Lambo. You want money. And with the money you can buy whatever you want. I don't see the point of limiting it to one Italian supercar that anyone with a Net Worth over $200,000 can afford.

Plus if you made a thread saying "I only want to study people with a Net Worth of XXXXX million/billion" it would have looked better. The Lambo criteria is just tacky.

Actually your approach makes absolutely no sense at all.

You made a list of fish that look like whales. Not real whales. The very reason that they bought Lambo’s is to look like whales. If you know that, then you should know not to idolize them.

Because you have no idea how much it costs to own a Lambo, you think that owning one makes that person credible.

A person making $50k a year can own a Lambo. Rethink your plan.

Btw, you should listen to me over other replies in this thread because I have Mclaren and Mclaren > Lambos. (Uh oh them’s fighting words)

Do you see what I did there?

Like I said Earlier - It's The Bridge Inspiration that helps to go forward to do something and at the same time it gives focus

I am not in the position to judge those people how they got lambo
The Fact is that they have lambos and they have my attention. That's it
Mclaren is good too but haven't thought about it lately.

You're still missing the entire point here. Your presumption is flawed.

You are basing your entire "study" on the assumption that Lamborghini Owner = Qualified Instructor. This is a false assumption. There is no correlation.

You are trying to build a list of people who are worth listening taking advice from on how to be successful and wealthy. You need a better metric than the car they drive, because the barrier to owning a Lamborghini (which, by the way, you don't even know if they own, lease, or rent these cars for their videos) is laughably low.

Your metric should instead be, as others have said, people who have built 8-figure-or-higher businesses. At the very, very least, it should be a net worth minimum.

This guy owns several Lambos. You can follow his advice on how to detect Gold Diggers. That will definitely make you rich(You won't waste your money on girls that ain't loyal).
Do care to buy his merch, watch every single video he uploads, never skip ads and share his videos so that he gets enough revenue to hire more Lambos for 2.5k per month.


This guy owns a $425k Bentley, $15M Penthouse and his financial advice is often useful.
Why not search for people with even more expensive cars?

82 reply pig-pile on a new guy that said something silly. We've all done it before somewhere and at some time. (I'm probably doing it now.)

Guess he won't be clicking any ads, becoming an insider, or making any market place purchases, nor will the 1000's of parked/ new contributors who see how a single misstep in this highly nuanced sub-culture pans out.

Entrepreneurs/ wantrepreneurs don't have to eat their young to farm for likes.

Yes, he made a silly post, but that’s not really the issue here. The issue is that many people are giving him reasons on why his presumption is wrong, including the very people that have Lambos that he claims to want to take advice from and he’s defending his stance. It’s rather ironic.

This isn't a pig pile. This is a group of people trying to get another person to see the light, each taking their own unique approach.

If this OP leaves as a result of this response, he will be back once he learns the lesson, one way or the other.

By all means then, carry on.

There's a cultural issue here; one that required the creation of a "men's room".

I don't know... I've made three major purchases through ad clicks here (payroll, insurance, and an awesome band saw). I try to contribute as best i can, usually by pointing people to more knowledgeable posters. I've initiate the purchase of web design from a contributor here, and my finger has been hovering over "become an insider" all week, but I think I'm going to take a fastlane forum break for a bit.

I'm not leaving here with a smile on my face as often as I used to.

A "single misstep" is a daily occurance for entrepreneurs. Fragile egos and the easily offended are best suited for jobs, not entrepreneurship.

Tough love is a thing of the past, but it isn't here.

If the OP continues to believe that "Lambo ownership" is the litmus test for valid life advice, he's in for a rough time, one that will cost him $1000s. And this is coming from a guy who owned Lambos and wrote a book with a stupid Lambo on the cover of his debut book ... a design move I quickly squashed.

We're not interested in pounding our chests with righteousness, we're interested in saving someone from costly mistakes. He's made other posts on the forum so I believe there is good hope for the gentleman.

There's a cultural issue here
Yea, the cultural issue of "Wow, he's got a Lambo, I'm gonna buy his $4997 guru training program ... the one I bought after being upsold in his 'free training' workshop."

OP: I only take advice from Lambo owners
Lambo Owners: Our advice is to not just listen to Lambo owners
OP: NO BUT I ONLY LISTEN TO LAMBO OWNERS

But all jokes aside, I get what he's saying. He only want to listen to people who have attained financial success, but said it in a very awkward and tacky way. But OP, you also have to realize that anyone can have valuable advice. You can learn something from anybody, even if they don't have the results you're after.

I have been around with Self Help/Self-Improvement/Personal Development Industry for a while.
It's all good but at the same time it is exhausting like which people shall I listen to for advice
So many people are there but there was no list to narrow down manually.
When there is no structure & framework in life, it becomes chaos and ended up frustrating.
There aren't very many people you need to listen to, to be honest.

Billionaires have written books about their stories and their takeaways from their lives. There's only a few 'get rich' books that you'll ever need to read, two of them were written by the owner of this forum. Self help is largely a waste of time as it's your constant, concerted action and willingness to take intelligent risks that will get you results. MJ wrote two whole books about it; you don't need more.

You can stop buying 'self help' courses if you want to. But you won't want to because maybe, just maybe, there's a secret in something that a Lambo owner will say that will help you. You're looking for the next person to listen to. Stop doing that.
