What the fuck. Boom. Realization.
I've been more active on BuSo since I'm stuck in a fucking great hotel for quarantine in S.Korea. Even during the midst of COVID, I'm out.

Rn, I'm forced inside. But I've perceived that those, pre-covid, who like to stay inside either lack a social group and therefore aren't incentivized to go out or they just love gobbling information on the web and it overrides the natural wiring of the human brain's desire for social interaction.

Yes. If you forsake a balanced life just to increase your ROI, I am labeling you as a nerd as long as you are successful and constantly strive to acquire new technical information to enhance your technical skill.

But maybe some of you are married, have kids, have real-life friends who are also in IM and you're in friendly competition, and have to grind to keep your woman incentivized to maintain her sexiness for you. Maybe. If your social life is your motivation for your grind then you're not a nerd.

In this hotel, I overlook fuckers sailing on the weekends. I should be doing that. Anyway. When I'm not quarantining, wherever I am in the world, I'm out exposing myself to new people, new meetups, new activities, new fighting gyms, new classes, new restaurants w/ my girl, new new new everything that's outside the realm of a computer screen.

So. I'm curious. How many people here are pimply nerds or family men. Note, I said nerds, not geeks. If you're a geek.. sit the fuck down.

You do realize that the national average of social media consumption is 6 HOURS per day right? So if we shutdown BuSo, doesn't really matter if people go to Reddit, Facebook, Instagram, or watch Netflix.

At least at BuSo you are gaining information, that if you are smart, you can utilize to generate a lot of money. Can you say the same for the 99% that watch Netflix or TV for 6-10 hours a day? What about the 6 hours a day browsing social media, even at work?

If people come here and read a ton of shit and do nothing that's on them.

No matter what the source of knowledge you drink from, you have to be careful what you read absorb. There are long journal entries here that summed up to the poster making zero dollars. I can't be fucked to read that. What possible knowledge can I gain from that?

That's an example of mental masturbation.

Another example is people wasting time reading books that cannot possible solve any of their current business problems - probably because first they don't have a real business. Some guru said to do it, so they do it.

"Read 2 books a day if you want to stay poor." - Dan Peña

BuSo is not the problem, it's a lack of going after goals and getting to them. Most people are satiated, so they live vicariously through other people, especially if they spend hours on Instagram. There are people that listen to Jocko and other podcasts ALL DAY to live vicariously through them.

Think about this - there are grown men, in their 20s, 30s, and 40s - that run home to play video games after work - IF they even go to work. If people can't figure out what's wrong with that... It ain't BuSo that's doing that.

Now you can talk about being in some hotel doing whatever, but if you look around and 99% of the people around you are taking selfies - probably including you and your girlfriend - what's the difference? You're taking selfies to post it on Instagram for some "Likes".

What the fuck are are those "Likes" doing for you? Putting money in your pocket? No, then aren't you just wasting your time too?

Everyone has 24 hours a in day - the 99% waste it. @Satvrn was stuck inside for months and created a $9 million business. What the fuck are you doing? Rambling.

You do realize that members on BuSo are the 1% who have a different mindset about media, right? We leverage media to make $ rather than being puppets of it. You're off subject.

First and foremost, being labeled as a nerd is a compliment. Nerds actively consume information that'll help them closer to their goal, in our case, increase our net worth. Most who consume media aren't nerds, they're brainless zombies who passively consume information because they don't know any other way to spend their time. I just complimented everyone in this group.

Now. Back to the point. How many people here are PIMPLY nerds. You're obviously a nerd, I don't know if you're the pimply kind. That's the point of this question.

To put it directly since you didn't understand the underlying question, how many of you here came into the world of IM because you lacked social interaction in the real world, refused to be a broke ugly fucker, refused to go to a shitty job day-in-day-out, and decided to do something about it? (I might be wrong so I'm looking for clarity)

Now, I come back to this point about people here likely being socially inadept because most natural socially adept people don't enter the world of IM. They're influenced by their peers at an early age and influenced to become Investment Bankers, Software Developers, Consultants, and etc where they excel because of their ability to solidify a powerful network.

Now there are exceptions of course, like myself. I was luckily introduced to the world of IM because I didn't want to run Google Ads while starting my first company during my undergraduate and was forced to intern at a start-up (required by my university) where I was luckily given an SEO-related role.

And I abhor anything that compromises masculine energy. This means selfies. I only take it if my girl adamantly requires it, but she knows not to do it too often. That's a relationship - setting boundaries and compromising it for special occasions.

And rambling? This hostility sounds a bit like insecurity.
If you'd read carefully, you would remember the point about life is about balance. I'm here for exactly that - work my ass off and come here to enjoy friendly debates with intellectual people who can stimulate my mind and improve my ability to effectively debate.

Debating with a socially adept person comes down to one's energy level. Debating w/ nerds comes down to intellectual power. I'm looking for the latter, okay?

Thanks for listening to my ted talk

@CCarter And thanks for your input and statements like what are you doing? Rambling.

It's comments like this that fuels me to get back to work after putting in 18 hours.
"What the fuck are you doing. You're tired? Being tired doesn't beat that mothafucker"

It's my work ethic that will challenge the internet's impression of CC from CCarter to CashCow.

I just entered the realm of IM but I'm catching up, quick.

And I agree with you. I don't leave all my eggs in SEO. Retarded to leave your all your eggs on a platform that can say fuck you, bye! This mindset alone makes you worthy of competition.

Watch out. I acknowledge you currently hold the crown but I'm coming.

Replying cause I got tagged in here.
But I've perceived that those, pre-covid, who like to stay inside either lack a social group and therefore aren't incentivized to go out or they just love gobbling information on the web and it overrides the natural wiring of the human brain's desire for social interaction.
The scale you have with internet advertising and the profits you can make override my natural wiring. Show me another industry / job where you can make a million a month working from home.
If you forsake a balanced life just to increase your ROI, I am labeling you as a nerd as long as you are successful and constantly strive to acquire new technical information to enhance your technical skill.
It's not about ROI, ROI is just one metric. You can't buy cool stuff with 300% ROI. But you can with 3 million.
wherever I am in the world, I'm out exposing myself to new people, new meetups, new activities, new fighting gyms, new classes, new restaurants w/ my girl, new new new everything that's outside the realm of a computer screen.
That's all fine and dandy but won't give you any advantage, don't fool yourself. 90% of people you meet will waste your time.

Sounds like you're looking for approval for all the normie shit you do tbh.
how many of you here came into the world of IM because you lacked social interaction in the real world, refused to be a broke ugly fucker, refused to go to a shitty job day-in-day-out, and decided to do something about it?
Probably a few, but most went into IM as its the fastest way to generate profits when you don't have any cash to start with.
most natural socially adept people don't enter the world of IM.
Haha, boy, you've clearly never been to Vegas or to Bangkok.
Where the hell did you get your stereotype from? Warriorforum?

This is probably one of the worst TED talks I've seen.
remember the point about life is about balance
Who says that? Life is about extremes. Our ancestors went without food for weeks, then had to run 10 miles and to kill some mean thing with primitive tools, then feast for a few days until the cycle repeats again.

In IM you grind weeks, months, maybe years with hopefully great cashflow and / or a big exit. Then you go on vacation mode for 6 months and after the 3rd day chilling at the beach in Marbella you're bored as fuck, planning the next project because you are not used to the idea of having a 'normal life'. If you want to hit it big, work has to become your life. This doesn't apply to IM exclusively, but to any other trait or art.
It's comments like this that fuels me to get back to work after putting in 18 hours.
Wow, 18 hours hustle, then hitting up the gym and taking your gf to the restaurant. All on 2 hours sleep. Killer.

Are you arguing for the sake of arguing? Your 3 million (if it wasn't gifted) is an ROI. Everything is measured by an ROI. Health, net worth, excess cash, etc. The quality of my relationship w/ my girl is an ROI, the investment being the time I expended on her.

That's all fine and dandy but won't give you any advantage, don't fool yourself. 90% of people you meet will waste your time.

Going out does give an advantage. It exposes an entrepreneur to emerging trends they overlooked/were oblivious of. For example - I'm in the U.S. and I focused solely on the U.S market because that was what I was exposed to. When I went abroad and went to SEA, I saw in real-time, the midst of mass adoption of phones and heavy demand for apps. That showed me starting a disruptive app that targets the indigenous SEA natives is worthy to consider.

And don't place your insecurity for going out on me. That's what you do - you go out to meet people and walk away sad that you 'wasted time'. I go out to expose myself to new information, survey markets, satisfy my natural curiosity for everything, and get better at activities that enhance my personal growth like MMA. Why is engaging in personal growth like MMA worth one's time? Because it helps build one's confidence. It allows me to say whatever the fuck I want to whoever I want w/o fear of retaliation because I'm prepared for physical retaliation if I rub someone the wrong way. You apparently would go to an MMA gym to hit on a guy. LOL

Haha, boy, you've clearly never been to Vegas or to Bangkok.
Where the hell did you get your stereotype from? Warriorforum?
Most people in California/New York the states with the highest GDP who are exceptionally socially adept aren't in IM. Sure it would be different in Bangkok and Vietnam where IM is praised because it's a very lucrative field w/o the need for credentials to start. It's possible it's the same in Vegas. From my knowledge, Vegas isn't necessarily known to be a hub of IM. I'm sure the socially adept individuals who didn't actively LEARN to be socially adept at the age of 20+ are managing hotels rather than being in IM.

If you want to hit it big, work has to become your life. This doesn't apply to IM exclusively, but to any other trait or art.

Growth is about going to extremes and overcoming. Life requires extremity. As you said, they had a feast for a few days, which is a break and an example of balance: work hard and rest hard.

Maybe you just work and ignore social interaction, physical movement, and personal time for 6 months and then exit. Then when you're resting, you're bored as fuck. Guess what? You're bored because you haven't cultivated interest/friends/hobbies/curiosity, you lost the inspiration to enjoy life so you just work because that's all you know.

I lived that life. I worked my ass off for 2 years, ignoring everything but work. I worked 15 hour days everyday (Woke up at 9 A.M and slept at 12A.M). This was right out of college when I bootstrapped a company and made a boatload of money. Yeah. I lived that life, exited, and like you, was fucking bored, exhausted, and restless on my 3rd day so I did what I knew, I started working on a portfolio of sites.

Thankfully, I was smart enough to realize that I needed balance on a daily scale - those other areas of my life mattered, or else I would walk into a road of depression with cash falling out of my pocket.

Live life just to work, make money, and have 0 curiosity for things and/or people to spend it on is a waste of life.

Wow, 18 hours hustle, then hitting up the gym and taking your gf to the restaurant. All on 2 hours sleep. Killer.
I'm quarantining so I can't really do anything but work and engage in push-ups/crunches. So Yes. 18 hours right now is a reality and the best use of my time.

I got into IM cuz I hated finance and didn't wanna have a boss.

Ccarter would call me a soy :D :D :happy:

Have a minecraft server (wish I had more time to play), a regular d and d group, catch a few good bass every year, root for the packers and eat culvers twice a week or more.

Planning on getting a pirate crew together for sea of thieves if any of you fine gentlemen care to join.

Also married to a wife way out of my league, prioritize my projects based on what ever the fuck my heart desires and generally spent the last decade just wandering around the usa doing what ever I felt like until this covid crap started ruinin my jam.

Plagues suck lol. Been on here way more to since the lockdowns.

I got a comfy little office 5 minute walk from my back door which seems to serve more as a board game room and art studio than an office.

I think the general dower mood of people has been getting me down.
Have been really slow on getting things done this year even by my rather low standards.
Have pretty much read most of the forum though. Its been valuable.
Really like most of our more prolific original posters.
Zuki and ccarter have been great for teaching me shit with out having to test it myself.

I've met up with quite a few people from this community and some related / entangled ones.
Most of them are surprisingly wealthy nerds that like to drink a bit to much and have active social lives.
There are for sure a notable number of good fisherman in IM. Especially in SEO.
Amazes me how many people in the industry are super serious about it. Always super fun to.

That's prolly biased a bit cuz the real introverts won't meet up lol.

Its mental masturbation and an excuse to waste your time.
Your approach doesn't really seem to work out for you when you're working for somebody else now.
And don't place your insecurity for going out on me.
Haha.

Yeah I think everybody can see that here.

You don't get the drift cause you know nothing about IM. I'm talking about ASW or AWA. The top performers are not the shy, ugly nerd that went into IM cause he has social anxiety lol.

So then be happy with 9 to 5 if that's cool with you.
My point is that with this "work life balance" kumbaya stuff you'll not end up at the top.
Not everybody wants to be at the top and that's okay.

What's your goal with this thread btw?

COVID was a blessing for me because for some reason I only thrive when I’m on my own. Before that I couldn’t stop “drinking with the boys.”

Going out is an excuse to waste one's time? What a depressive ass attitude. An excuse is when you know you have shit to do but procrastinate by going out. That's different than going out to satisfy one's interest AFTER a good day of work. And don't get it twisted, I work for my dreams and to create jobs for my people.
The top performers are not the shy, ugly nerd that went into IM cause he has social anxiety lol.
Way to take a small selection of the entire population of IMers to answer a question about the general population. No fucking shit, the top performers are a different breed. I wouldn't be surprised that these top performers KNEW they could succeed in any endeavor and jumped into IM for efficient scalability. The more you talk, the more I'm beginning to think any retard can make $9 million a year w/ the right mentorship, work ethics, and experience.

So then be happy with 9 to 5 if that's cool with you.

My point is that w/o balance, you'll end up 50 years old, lonely, depressed, burned out, and wondering where the fuck did I screw up. Getting rich is easy - find a system that works and is scalable. Cash out and become a very savvy investor - meaning, have people work for their dreams but make you richer by the second. <- That's the ultimate goal of everyone whether they know it or not, so they can rid their mind of lower-level thoughts - technical knowledge, anxiety - and open it to higher-level notions such as purpose, self-discovery, influence, and leadership. Do you think a king ever fills his mind with technical knowledge? Absolutely not, it's a waste of his mental space and energy because there are more important matters to ponder on.

And ever hear that corporate slaves who work 4 days per week are more productive than those who work 5 days /week? It's because of balance. And so for us. If we learn to balance our lives, we'll accomplish more in 5 hours than the obsessive, stressed individual working 18 hours.

Read the comments above and you'll understand my goal for this thread, and don't fill this thread with your nonsense.

Probably a bit less than the amount of you drinking with your boys and sucking each other off

Yeah, that's all you got.
Let this be an encouragement to everyone who's retarded. You too can make a $9 mill business!

This is ridiculous. Someone glorifying working 4 days a week for 5 hours as an employee is going to take my crown?! Wild. I wasn’t even aware I had the crown.

members on BuSo are the 1% who have a different mindset about media

That's wishful thinking at best. Most are obsessed with only-SEO to a crippling point.

I'm beginning to think any retard can make $9 million a year w/ the right mentorship, work ethics, and experience.

How are you JUST realizing this? Anyone can make millions and billions. It has zero to do with intelligence, social status, class, or whether you are a “nice” guy. I’m not coming after @Satvrn’s head cause he is smarter than me, I am coming after him cause he is more dedicated than me - at the moment.

I was wrong. Never underestimate how wrong you can be. At the end of the day you could make millions and billions of dollars, but you had to work 100-120 hours a week and no one wanted to hear that.” - Dan Peña

A simple example - the vast majority of people on average have a 100 IQ. No one can have 10x that IQ level, yet there are people that make 10x, 100x, and 1000x more money than others. It’s because they dream bigger and set higher goals and standards.

It’s not a coincidence that when people start listening about setting higher expectations in their BuSo journal like @CaptainHustle they start achieving their goals faster. He figured out that everything is about mindset.

The experts for decades said it was impossible to run the 4 minute mile, then someone did it. The very next year 4 other people magically did it as well!

@Satvrn has the crown cause in business, and in life, the only thing people keep track of is money.

I am glad though you’re coming aggressively, at least what you think is aggressive. This arena is lacking true competition and leadership. Come for me, and when you truly are ready for me I’ll be the easiest person to find.

All this PC and kumbaya shit that's placating the world is the reason it's so easy but also a bit alarming. Mayfair, London experienced its 6th quarter down in real estate prices BEFORE COVID, no one is reporting it nor talking about it. New York City experienced 6 months of downward real estate prices BEFORE COVID, no one is talking about it. AFTER COVID, millionaire New Yorkers are fleeing New York for Miami Beach, and real estate prices are going through the roof - no state income tax creates a massive influx in wealth and money moving out of New York, no one is talking about it.

What do you think happens to a business centered economy when a ton of skyscrapers are empty?

What do you think happens when a consumer based economy STOPS consuming, and is encouraged to stop consuming?

If CCarter is ringing the alarm bells about the holidays (and pray to god the emperor gets re-elected) it means you are already dead. If I'm ringing the alarm bells it means I'm 1000 miles away on a spaceship somewhere far far far away, cause only THEN is when I'll warn everyone. So you are already dead. But keep wasting time... You people are about to get really FUCKED like you can't imagine.

You know where I get a majority of my information from? The help. Cleaning staff, janitors, valet, maids (but my butler is pretty useless though), coffee shop employees, office building managers, hotel staff members. I talk to them in a dis-alarming way by prefacing it "don't be PC". They are at the ground level and see whether more or less people are coming and going.

People aren't coming and going like they used to. AND when they do come they have fear in their eyes. To see business owners who's whole identity is about taking risks for the first time in their lives SCARED to take risk - that's the smell of death. I've never seen it at this level.



99.999% of the developing world is playing musical chairs without realizing there are no chairs left. But people are going to keep sticking their head in the sand like the SEOs who think Google traffic is permanent and forever - until an algorithm update comes and they shit bricks for weeks.

You're already dead.

What's the solution? You fuckers need to put in more hours in the kitchen and maximize revenue NOW, instead of wasting time.

Why is engaging in personal growth like MMA worth one's time? Because it helps build one's confidence. It allows me to say whatever the fuck I want to whoever I want w/o fear of retaliation because I'm prepared for physical retaliation if I rub someone the wrong way.

This is how I know you're full of shit.

I can't take anything you write seriously after this, because if you actually mean what you wrote here, then you'll be dead in a few years anyway.

I'll put it in perspective since I see your perspective.

I value my brain so I don't fight when I don't have 2. So. I know yapping my mouth for no reason and dick-measuring with strangers via rigid eye contact will stir trouble. Don't need it, so I don't do it esp with strangers because there are too many variables that I'm unaware of that might put my life on the line (the guy has a strap on them at that moment). And if I do lock eyes with killers or someone who's trigger ready, I'll know, nod, and move on. For reference, I've been around killers for a few years of my life when I was being a knucklehead, so I recognize one when I see one.

And most criminals who are trigger ready aren't out in broad daylight walking the streets and in busy business centers. They're conducting business or having fun at a private club once the sun sets.

But. If I get invited to a friend's party and find myself in a verbal argument with a colleague of his who wants to play a dick measuring contest w/ me, I'll be assured of 1 thing that'll completely rid my filter - he likely doesn't have a gun since he's a white-collar worker and isn't about that life.

Assured of this, I won't hesitate to speak my mind and offend this person while trying to beat this person in his own game. Actually, the only time I offend people is when I know they don't have a weapon and they try to dick measure with me. And why do people try to dick measure with me? I'm assuming 60% of it is my body posture, 30% is my rigid eye contact, and 10% my voice.

This is ridiculous. Someone glorifying working 4 days a week for 5 hours as an employee is going to take my crown?! Wild. I wasn’t even aware I had the crown.
You seem to value work hard. I did too until I fully understood what it means to work smart
What do you think happens to a business centered economy when a ton of skyscrapers are empty?
We can go about this and then talk about the other side where there are aggressive growth and strides made in technology, biotech, and blockchain decentralized banking. Money is moving from NY to other states. Actually, Cali draws in nearly 2x times as NY. NY is slipping, okay. Let's not forget about the GDP and economic state of other powerhouses like Cali, Texas, and maybe IL/Florida.

What do you think happens when a consumer based economy STOPS consuming, and is encouraged to stop consuming?
Where did you get this information? W
don't be PC"
What does PC mean?
People aren't coming and going like they used to. AND when they do come they have fear in their eyes. To see business owners who's whole identity is about taking risks for the first time in their lives SCARED to take risk - that's the smell of death. I've never seen it at this level.
Same shit in 2008. We recovered. Humans adapt. We'll recover from this too.

What the fuck. Boom. Realization.
You do realize, that just because YOU realize something.. doesn't mean it's accurate or correct though, right?

But I've perceived that those, pre-covid, who like to stay inside either lack a social group and therefore aren't incentivized to go out or they just love gobbling information on the web and it overrides the natural wiring of the human brain's desire for social interaction.
Entirely wrong.

People are like onions. Layers on top of layers.

Making black and white statements about complex stuff shows me you haven't had time to really think this out.

One layer I will give you is personality. Some of us have a personality type that doesn't match having social groups. At least not social groups in the way you are setting them up in this thread. It has nothing to do with incentivized to go out. It has nothing to do with overriding "natural wiring" like we are all cookie cutter. Our natural wiring IS that.

and have to grind to keep your woman incentivized to maintain her sexiness for you
If you think those of us that are married have to grind to make our woman want to stay sexy, you must be in your 20's still. Wow. You are really showing your lack of maturity here and lack of life experience.

If your social life is your motivation for your grind then you're not a nerd.
Anyone grinding to improve their social life, is already doing life and work wrong to begin with.

When I'm not quarantining, wherever I am in the world, I'm out exposing myself to new people, new meetups, new activities, new fighting gyms, new classes, new restaurants w/ my girl, new new new everything that's outside the realm of a computer screen.
Great.

How about instead you stay home and work on building a business? Behind a screen or not ( real estate ), not going out and building a business would more than likely work out better for you in the long run than "meeting new people".

Just because you "want" to do these things, doesn't mean it's what others need to do.

Right now, it sounds like you are out dicking around, not building a business. Some of us want to build a business or 4 to leave to others or level up.

came into the world of IM because you lacked social interaction in the real world, refused to be a broke ugly fucker, refused to go to a shitty job day-in-day-out, and decided to do something about it? (I might be wrong so I'm looking for clarity)
People do not come to IM because they want this change. IM is a means to an end. They did the change for the end, not the means.

They ended up in the means for multiple reasons. Some don't even know they are doing IM, they think they are doing "youtube" or providing a Productized Service.

people here likely being socially inadept because most natural socially adept people don't enter the world of IM. They're influenced by their peers at an early age and influenced to become Investment Bankers, Software Developers, Consultants, and etc where they excel because of their ability to solidify a powerful network.
All of the professions here you just listed are NOT for socially adept people. This shows you have not looked into this or thought much about this.

All of the professions you listed here as someone who is socially adept are actually professions consumed and almost entirely filled by people such as INTJs ( including IM ) and other socially non-adept people.

I was luckily introduced to the world of IM because I didn't want to run Google Ads while starting my first company during my undergraduate and was forced to intern at a start-up (required by my university) where I was luckily given an SEO-related role.
Most of us stumbled into IM because we wouldn't be caught dead in a university, and for sure wouldn't be "told" what we can and can not do, just to end up with debt and a piece of paper.

I think that's more of the difference than if we are socially adept or not.

We have the rule breaker attitude, not that we don't want to run around and "meet new people".

And I abhor anything that compromises masculine energy. This means selfies. I only take it if my girl adamantly requires it, but she knows not to do it too often.
This smells of inexperience, selfishness, and ego.

That's a relationship - setting boundaries and compromising it for special occasions.
See above. There are no "boundaries" in a real relationship.

You think your mom had a boundary with you? You think if you went to your mom for something you needed she would tell you "no" because it's a boundary with her? lol

Like when you shit your diaper she said.. oh thats a boundary.. and left you with shit on your ass all day as a 1 year old?

Geez man. Yeah, revisit the above a few more times.

If you'd read carefully, you would remember the point about life is about balance.
Says who? You? You da Guru?

The point of life is not "balance". This sounds like some millennial PC snowflake talk.


If you'd read carefully, you would remember the point about life is about balance. I'm here for exactly that - work my ass off and come here to enjoy friendly debates with intellectual people who can stimulate my mind and improve my ability to effectively debate.
Again with the balance. Says who? You da Guru?

You talk about going out and having balance away from the screen and going out and out and out and out and out and out but you here to debate people online? You seem to be going in circles now.

Why aren't you having these debates with the many wondering "not behind the screen" experiences you talk about?

It's comments like this that fuels me to get back to work after putting in 18 hours.
"What the fuck are you doing. You're tired? Being tired doesn't beat that mothafucker"
I hate to tell you, but anyone that brags about working 18+ days is doing it wrong.

Not because of "balance". Which you say you have a ton of, but you also say you are working 18+ hour days....

Also, you promote not working harder... but smarter. What's smart about working 18+ hour days?

I just entered the realm of IM but I'm catching up, quick.
You admit you are new to IM, so please stop assuming or judging us. You're a newb, you don't know what you are talking about if you just entered the "realm"

And I agree with you. I don't leave all my eggs in SEO. Retarded to leave your all your eggs on a platform that can say fuck you, bye! This mindset alone makes you worthy of competition.
This is nonsense.

Do you know how many millionaires are made daily by people that put their eggs in one basket?

More than those that generalize/diversify. People only generalize/diversify ( put their eggs in different baskets ) once they become rich. Not before.

Are you arguing for the sake of arguing? Your 3 million (if it wasn't gifted) is an ROI. Everything is measured by an ROI. Health, net worth, excess cash, etc. The quality of my relationship w/ my girl is an ROI, the investment being the time I expended on her.
If you think something like a relationship is built on, continued with, or measured by ROI.. you are a horrible "friend" to that girl.

That's like saying, the quality of my relationship with my child is an ROI.

Going out does give an advantage. It exposes an entrepreneur to emerging trends they overlooked/were oblivious of. For example - I'm in the U.S. and I focused solely on the U.S market because that was what I was exposed to. When I went abroad and went to SEA, I saw in real-time, the midst of mass adoption of phones and heavy demand for apps. That showed me starting a disruptive app that targets the indigenous SEA natives is worthy to consider.
You telling me, you had to go to South East Asia to "learn" cell phones and apps was huge?

LOL.

You couldn't have sat at home, in the USA, and seen it here and pondered... "gee those people in asia are probably human too and using their phones a lot".

Yeah, you are not an entrepreneur dude. You're just someone that "stumbles" on to something by accident.

Why is engaging in personal growth like MMA worth one's time? Because it helps build one's confidence. It allows me to say whatever the fuck I want to whoever I want w/o fear of retaliation because I'm prepared for physical retaliation if I rub someone the wrong way.
If you have to take MMA to build confidence, then you must have not had any to begin with.

I say whatever I want to whoever I want, any time and I don't have to have MMA lessons or a gun/knife to back that up. I speak what I want, when and if it comes time to fight, we swing.

Sometimes you win, sometimes you don't.

Most of us don't need to build up confidence.

Also, most of us don't need to "be right" and speak our minds on things that rub people the wrong way. Most of us have learned that is a fools game to begin with anyways.

From my knowledge, Vegas isn't necessarily known to be a hub of IM.
Yeah, then you haven't been in IM long. Like you said, you just entered it and are new.

But Vegas is huge. So is Utah ( who would have thought ) and other odd places in the US.

Growth is about going to extremes and overcoming
No. haha

Growth is about keeping what you have, and adding to it. Going to the extreme and overcoming, even though you might lose everything, is not Growth.

Again, growth is keeping what you have currently, and adding on top of it ( to it ).

Then when you're resting, you're bored as fuck. Guess what? You're bored because you haven't cultivated interest/friends/hobbies/curiosity, you lost the inspiration to enjoy life so you just work because that's all you know.
You assume someone that might be an INTJ or another inward personality type needs to have cultivated interests or friends or hobbies.

That they are bored because they don't have these things.

I have hobbies, friends, and interests and major curiosity.

But I work because I have goals and dreams bigger than yours. Those things don't magically fall off the tree while I am out taking selfies and doing MMA. They come because I put in work somewhere else.

When Im bored, Im bored because I exhausted all other things.. such as hobbies and friends and interests.

My 3rd day sitting at the beach in Miami is boring because all my friends are back home in Kentucky, my hobbies are also there ( I don't lug my hobbies with me on vacation you know ), and my interests might not be related to the beach at the moment ( building muscle cars isn't really a beach thing and there might not be a car show atm ).

So yeah, I might work a bit on a new idea. That becomes my new hobby.

I lived that life. I worked my ass off for 2 years, ignoring everything but work. I worked 15 hour days everyday (Woke up at 9 A.M and slept at 12A.M).
I remember my first part-time job too.

Thankfully, I was smart enough to realize that I needed balance on a daily scale - those other areas of my life mattered, or else I would walk into a road of depression with cash falling out of my pocket.
If you can't build out a life with cash falling out of your pocket, Im not sure how you could the opposite way.

Live life just to work, make money, and have 0 curiosity for things and/or people to spend it on is a waste of life.
No.

You make money, so you can do those things later on without disruption.

Money = freedom
Freedom = doing the shit you want to do, like hobbies and people


I wouldn't be surprised that these top performers KNEW they could succeed in any endeavor and jumped into IM for efficient scalability.
No top performer jumps into anything for efficient scalability.

A top performer in Real Estate, doesnt one day say... "im so damn good I should jump into IM because its efficient"

The more you talk, the more I'm beginning to think any retard can make $9 million a year w/ the right mentorship, work ethics, and experience.
Many retards do make millions.

And most times, it does only take work ethic ( without the mentorship or experience ), but I will say mentorship and experience increases those odds.

My point is that w/o balance, you'll end up 50 years old, lonely, depressed, burned out, and wondering where the fuck did I screw up.
How would you know? Im willing to bet you aren't 50 years old to give such advice yet.

Getting rich is easy - find a system that works and is scalable.
Mostly, this is right.

However, it isn't fully accurate.

People in real estate thought this too. A lot of them lost their asses in 2008.

At a 50k foot level, this is mostly correct. However, the devil is in the details and that's when you learn there is a lot more to it.

That's the ultimate goal of everyone whether they know it or not, so they can rid their mind of lower-level thoughts - technical knowledge, anxiety - and open it to higher-level notions such as purpose, self-discovery, influence, and leadership
Yeah, I can tell you right now...

opening my mind to influence and leadership is no where on my radar. Fuck the fame and all.

And ever hear that corporate slaves who work 4 days per week are more productive than those who work 5 days /week? It's because of balance
Nope. Wrong again.

It's about Parkinson's law. The boundary created by Parkinson's law has nothing to do with if the indiv. is balanced or heading into a 3 day weekend.

And so for us. If we learn to balance our lives, we'll accomplish more in 5 hours than the obsessive, stressed individual working 18 hours.
Nope. Wrong again.

It's about Parkinson's law.

I value my brain so I don't fight when I don't have 2. So. I know yapping my mouth for no reason and dick-measuring with strangers via rigid eye contact will stir trouble. Don't need it, so I don't do it esp with strangers because there are too many variables that I'm unaware of that might put my life on the line (the guy has a strap on them at that moment). And if I do lock eyes with killers or someone who's trigger ready, I'll know, nod, and move on. For reference, I've been around killers for a few years of my life when I was being a knucklehead, so I recognize one when I see one.
But hey, I thought this is why you took MMA though, right? So you could fight back?

It has nothing to do with incentivized to go out. It has nothing to do with overriding "natural wiring" like we are all cookie cutter. Our natural wiring IS that.
Quit your bs about black and white statements when you're providing the same. People are like onions? Do you think your abstract sentence makes any sense beyond yourself? If you're trying to use an abstract concept as a tool for your argument, follow it up with a thorough concrete example. Okay, personality is a layer. What's next? Ego? What's After? Super Ego? What's after? ID? Now explain how this refutes the need for face to face interaction. The whole point of going out is face to face interaction. You're going to tell me that people don't need this regardless of their 'layer'? Tell that to a neuroscientist + psychologist and they'll rip you apart.

Anyone grinding to improve their social life, is already doing life and work wrong to begin with.
The fuck, nobody mentioned grinding to improve their social life. Did you even understand my sentence?

Too bad you're absolutely wrong. I have about 5 - 10 cash flows with my venmo/paypal ringing cha-ching ever too often. And the best part is, I just started IM. And know why? Because I don't jump in w/o a plan. Fucking retarded. Have you heard of going on a road trip without a destination? Yeah. Same shit by just jumping in. Exposure to new stimuli floods that brain with ideas and motivation to do my due diligence to see a lucrative opportunity. You? What the fuck do you do. Jump on a bandwagon? Like trading crypto? What a waste of time to speculate and reading charts/volume changes when you can be learning something exciting or new that can lead to a much profitable business that you can streamline.

Such ignorance. Read. I said influenced. Did I say they actually become IB/Devs/etc? NO. The point is, they enter the corporate world/start-up because they're influenced at an early age to value this over entrepreneurship unless they come from an entrepreneurial family.


See above. There are no "boundaries" in a real relationship.
Lol. Bad relationship? There are definitely boundaries in a healthy relationship. Shows where you are in your relationships. Do you punch your wife? No. Do you play tricks on her? Maybe. Do you keep pestering her after she yells with a serious STOP? Yes. That's an example of an unspoken boundary you fool.

Fucking read this thread before you start bullshitting because you were offended by things I said.

I'm working long hours NOW because I'm in quarantine. I'm debating here NOW because I'm in quarantine. You'd understand the context if you fucking read before blowing up replies due to an emotional spike I stirred in you.

And my track record says I know what I'm doing in SEO. Yeah I only have 1 year. Np. I have 5 successful websites that are drawing passive income. That's just in a year. Look who's quick to judge.
This is nonsense.

Do you know how many millionaires are made daily by people that put their eggs in one basket?

More than those that generalize/diversify. People only generalize/diversify ( put their eggs in different baskets ) once they become rich. Not before.

Yes you fool. You're out of context. We're not talking about making a fucking million quickly. Carter mentioned and suggested that entrepreneurs who run multiple cash flows should be wise and diversify. SEO shouldn't be the only avenue for cash flow like those who run 10-30 affiliate websites because Google could fuck them over at any moment.

L
No. haha

Growth is about keeping what you have, and adding to it. Going to the extreme and overcoming, even though you might lose everything, is not Growth.

Again, growth is keeping what you have currently, and adding on top of it ( to it ).
Look at you. You're scared to take risks. You got comfortable, value security, and comfort. Too bad. You've lost that fire and confidence in yourself that tells you can make it all back if you lose it all tomorrow. But I get it. You're a freelancer who does/did PPC work for people and made a decent penny. It would be hard to risk all that money esp if you didn't earn it via an entrepreneurial journey.

And growth is like working out. You won't grow until you push yourself outside your comfort zone. In business, it doesn't mean be retarded. It means taking calculated risks, yet still taking a risk. Trying to 10x your net worth? I assure you, you're going to have to take a risk. Are your balls big enough?

I remember my first part-time job too.
Lol are you ashamed that you didn't make a close to a mill in the first 2 years of your entrepreneurial journey?

You make money, so you can do those things later on without disruption.

Money = freedom
Freedom = doing the shit you want to do, like hobbies and people
lol when you're old af? Aren't you free already? No? Then you're not of the same caliber as me and we can't relate. See. I thought everyone was of the same caliber as me. But I'm beginning to think I set the bar too high.
Many retards do make millions.
Yes. For example, WSB retards who took out loans and got lucky.

opening my mind to influence and leadership is no where on my radar. Fuck the fame and all.
Fame? You immature fool.

Nope. Wrong again.

It's about Parkinson's law.
Which corporate slave really expends their time working unnecessarily just to fill their hours? Unless both of us have concrete data, this conversion is up in the air.

You think being confident means being brash in front of killers? You belong in WSB.

Okay. This was fun. All of you belong in WSB except Carter.
Thanks for staying til the end of my Ted talk.

Your just mad that you're wrong. Many in your generation are that way. You can't handle when you're wrong so you make up stuff and lash out. Considering you also admit you can't do ANYTHING that diminishes masculinity, I expected this from you. OF COURSE you won't admit when you're wrong...

That would be SO UN-MANLY. Just like taking a selfie... oh dear so UN-MANLY.

LOL...


The fuck, nobody mentioned grinding to improve their social life. Did you even understand my sentence?
You wrote it, so I guess you don't understand it? If you can't understand yourself how the hell you gonna try to figure out who and why people hang out at BuSo?

5-10 cash flows? A cash flow could be $10 a month. 10 of those is $100. No one cares about your cash flows.

Bandwagon? Son, I have you know I create bandwagons. If you don't know, now you know.

Your generation is so late to the game.

How bout you go take them selfies with your girl and meet some new people? You missing out on tripping over the next cell phone app with SEA's because you in here talking to me.

Such ignorance. Read. I said influenced. Did I say they actually become IB/Devs/etc? NO. The point is, they enter the corporate world/start-up because they're influenced at an early age to value this over entrepreneurship unless they come from an entrepreneurial family.

You can't see over your blindness that the fact is you were wrong about those professions, which means your wrong about people, which means your whole logic is wrong.

You're too busy trying to prove to yourself that you are right, you can't see anything else.

How about you go outside?

Lol. Bad relationship? There are definitely boundaries in a healthy relationship. Shows where you are in your relationships. Do you punch your wife? No. Do you play tricks on her? Maybe.

Sorry, I dont need a trophy or a debate online to pretend and fool myself into being "right"

I also am not emotional. I dont emotional over peasants that just got into the IM game with $10 cash flows.

I also dont care about Beta Males that think they need to do anything and everything to "keep their masculinity".

If you work long hours because of some pandemic, that just shows me what kind of idiot you actually are. Having to do something because you feel you are "forced too" when in fact you aren't forced to so anything and have to be prompted to do anything to begin with.

Who cares about 5 websites you have doing passive income.

I had a 5 passive websites when I started too. They made $100 each. Big whoop.

No one cares when you speak "passive income" and "cash flows". All that is garbage unless you posting dollar bills son.

Dollar bills pay bills, not "cash flows" and "passive income" websites. You think none of us have some "adsense" websites too? LOL

If you only built 5 websites in 1 year, you are fucking around. I know a 6 year old girl who built 10 websites in 6 months.


Yes you fool. You're out of context. We're not talking about making a fucking million quickly. Carter mentioned and suggested that entrepreneurs who run multiple cash flows should be wise and diversify. SEO shouldn't be the only avenue for cash flow like those who run 10-30 affiliate websites because Google could fuck them over at any moment.

The only fool I see is the one that has been in IM for 1 year or less talking about Google fucking people over. You have no such experience yet to even bring this up or talk about it.

But if we ain't talking about making a million quickly, why would be talking about making a million slowly? No one wants to make a million slowy.. LOL

So the convo is making it quickly you dumb ass.

Your golden years is now. Not later. Why wait to make a million? Why do it slowly and over years.

Oh I know why.. you need BALANCE. B A L A N C E. You need that selfie time and macho macho time because you know, you got no confidence.. that shit you need MMA for.


Look at you. You're scared to take risks. You got comfortable, value security, and comfort. Too bad. You've lost that fire and confidence in yourself that tells you can make it all back if you lose it all tomorrow. But I get it.

And growth is like working out. You won't grow until you push yourself outside your comfort zone. In business, it doesn't mean be retarded. It means taking calculated risks, yet still taking a risk. Trying to 10x your net worth? I assure you, you're going to have to take a risk. Are your balls big enough?

If you need to know how big my balls are, ask your girlfriend.

But in all seriousness, I made my first million when I was 30. It's pretty well documented online if you Google it or ask around or read some other forums.

Can you say the same? Where is your million?

And by million, it was liquid. Like cash in the bank. Not equity or assets like a home, etc.

I've also set trends in this industry not just once, but multiple times that made others millions too. Can you say the same?

If I wanted to get comfortable, value security, etc.. I earned it. I accomplished it.

You haven't.

See, you can't measure me against you. We aren't on the same playing field. You're still on earth, Im in a spaceship. Im so high I can't even see me.

So if I want to fuck around, lay on a beach, do PPC work for Alibaba, John Deere, The Virgin Group, TeamViewer, and a bunch of big brands to expand out and connect with high profile brands, I can.

If I want to build a SaaS like SERPWoo and bring myself a recurring cash flow, a real one.. I can.

Why?

Because I been there and done that.

You just nibbling on the crumbs I left behind. You haven't earned anything.

You can't measure your start with my middle or ending.

You thinking you can, proves what an idiot you are.


Lol are you ashamed that you didn't make a close to a mill in the first 2 years of your entrepreneurial journey?

Are you ashamed you haven't even done it?

Why would it matter if I made a million at 12 or 30 or 52. Hint, some people never do it.

It's not about what you make either, its about what you keep. Something else you haven't learned.

What good is a million, if you no longer have it? What good is a million if you cant even make it ( you )?

But I can gaur. you I was an entrepreneur in middle school doing business, while you were out taking selfies trying to achieve balance and tripping over ideas on accident, like cell phones and apps for SEA's, something you couldn't comprehend while in the US.


lol when you're old af? Aren't you free already? No? Then you're not of the same caliber as me and we can't relate. See. I thought everyone was of the same caliber as me. But I'm beginning to think I set the bar too high.
Who said anything about old?

I said you make money now, so you can enjoy those things later while not being disturbed.

That has nothing to do with age.

Example, since you're dumb as a brick...

Spend 2 years working on business, doing the things no else will do... so you can spend the next 40 years "doing the things no else will do" and doing those things without worry.

Your right though, no one is the caliber of you. Most of us here are the 1% in this game and know how business runs. You on the other hand, are still in the toddler phase of business, IM, and life in general.

But you wouldn't know that. You too busy with MMA but scared to deal with killers. You also too busy trying to get ROI from your girlfriend and taking selfies.


Yes. For example, WSB retards who took out loans and got lucky.

Could be, yes they might be in that camp.

But you exclude all those that "copy" ideas other people like myself actually originate. You know, like your "ahHa" moment to take cell phones and apps and do something with it just because you went to another country.

Plenty of people up and copy, up and steal, and make millions. Isn't just Wall Street types.


Fame? You immature fool.

Influence and Leadership without money is boiled down to fame. Seems you are the fool here.

Why would someone want to be an influencer or leader without the money, and without the fame?

Waiting.....?

If you say "to help people" you for sure are some kind of retard.


Which corporate slave really expends their time working unnecessarily just to fill their hours? Unless both of us have concrete data, this conversion is up in the air.

If you work a day job ( corporate slave ), your whole premise there is to fill up time unnecessarily to fill up time.

Ask yourself why so many companies refused to let people work from home, until they were forced to by COVID, because of this?

It's because you're paid in a job to be busy. Busy = unneeded work to fill up time.

Thats how 95% of jobs go bro. Day job = busy work.



You think being confident means being brash in front of killers? You belong in WSB.

You tell me.

You the one with the confidence problem. You the one that thinks you need protection if you say whats on your mind and then maybe need to defend yourself.

You tell me, you the one needing MMA and a confidence boost. You the one telling us you hang with killers in your life and can handle them.. so whats the issue?

I don't have issues with confidence or masculinity. Maybe that should tell you something about yourself?

Also.... someone that has the deep desire to be right all the time.. like yourself, also tends to try to rub people the wrong way because you can't admit when your wrong, thus you feel like you have to be proven right, so you run people the wrong way trying to get your "win".

It all adds up now. Maybe you can't see it?

Ask yourself why you need that confidence boost, maybe because you can't admit your wrong and need to prove yourself that you think you're right all the time?

There is something that was touched on that should really be understood. This work-life-balance crap started in the 80s. The reality is there is no such thing IF you are trying to achieve some serious goals.

There’s no such thing as work-life balance, There are work-life choices, and you make them, and they have consequences.” - Jack Welch

All your choices have consequences.

Olympic athletes play their sport, eat, sleep, do cardio, and lift weights - 80-120 hours a week, actually 24/7. They see everything else as irrelevant. Attorneys at Freshfields work 100+ hours a week. Amazon employees work 80+ hours a week just to keep their job, 90+ hours to considered for a promotion. Anyone that wants to achieve serious success and be at the top of them game doesn’t have this 1980s mantra of “work-life-balance.”

Your brother-in-law that’s a lawyer isn’t the one to go up against Freshfields in anything, unless you want to be served your head on a plate.

Going up against a former Amazon employee who turned business owner is another level of competitiveness that most can’t comprehend.

You going one-on-one with Lebron James, what chance do you have?

These people I mentioned are at the top of their game, they don’t have work-life-balance - not if they are successful.

Elon Musk works 100-120 hours a week. He spends his birthdays working 24 hours on the Tesla factory floor. Bill Gates slept at his office. Steve Jobs slept at is office. Does any of those super successful sound like they have work-life-balance? No.

If you don’t want to be at the top of your game in your field of endeavor that’s fine. Go find your hippy work-life-balance and sing kumbaya with your fellow 99%er.

Just don’t be surprised when your mythical 4 hour work week never materialized the goals and achievements you desire.

And that is why I’m in the office on Saturdays and Sundays because there are people that think like me that are gunning for me whether they know me or not. And I’m gunning for some else’s throne, and if they are stupidly looking for work-life-balance, I’m going to steamroll them, simply by putting in an extra 2 days a week they aren’t willing to.

That’s why your never defeat me @CashCowAdv, I compete on a different continuum.

Not a troll, just trying to understand context and stuff (non-native)

What is WSB? Google tells me World Sports Betting or WallStreetBet.

Thanks in advance for clearing this one up for me.

Wall Street Bets. He’s probably talking about the subreddit
