Money is about value, not time

Money is about value, not time

You are paid in proportion to the perceived value of your work. Not based on how hard you work: A handyman may work hard, but his work is easily replaceable so he will make less money than a lazy accountant.

The most valuable employees are the ones working on the biggest problems. The richest people are those who solve a problem for billions. 

If you want money, stop chasing money. Look for big problems and come up with solutions. The market will reward you generously.

The myth of corrupt millionaires

The myth of corrupt millionaires

We have grown up to see money as the tool of evil for corrupt individuals. However, more than 60% of millionaires are self-made. They started from 0 and built their empires one brick at a time.

This includes people like:

  • Warren Buffet
  • Howard Schultz (ex Starbucks CEO)
  • Oprah Winfrey
  • Jeff Bezos
  • Elon Musk
  • etc...

They worked hard, on problems that affected millions. And they came up with solutions that scale.

Money = Freedom

Money = Freedom

Money is just a belief. A number on a screen. What we want is the feeling of freedom: The ability to do what we want, when we want it, without having to think if we afford it or not.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
