At the end of many seminars, they open it up for Q&A. Gary Vee is a big proponent of this allocating nearly half his speaking time for Q&A. There’s a few valuable lessons woven in the audience’s questions. Audience members love to give their backstory. Hopefully with you being an outside observer, and listening to […]
Follow your passion is common advice. Some gurus preach it, and some gurus say it’s garbage. Is someone that starts a million dollar sewage treatment plant passionate about sewage? Of course not.

Kevin Smith recently talked in an interview with Joe Rogan that he’s “living on borrowed time.” This is because he had a heart attack and could have easily died but now is so grateful to be here for a little longer.

But when the real estate market crashes, Cardone and everyone like him are going down because they’re not […]
“Stay positive, and focus on solutions and not the problems!” – Random Guru. It’s garbage advice. It’s often bad advice since we’re often solving the wrong problem. Sometimes the better way to look at it is to consider why something is a problem to begin with. If your business has a turnover problem, reducing turnover […]
“You need to grind 80 hours a week on your business!” – Random guru Almost no one is going to be able to take this advice. Gurus want to give impossible advice, so when nothing they say works, they can blame you for not following instructions. Something as harmless as watching a movie might actually […]
What is this site?
I follow business leaders, gurus, and philosophers and note things others missed that I’ve found valuable.
