The Experience Paradox

The Experience Paradox

Like a crappy job posting that you feel unqualified for:

You need experience to start, but you gain experience by starting.

Most of what you are told you can’t do is an illusion. You take it as law and impose limits on yourself.

Use Twitter:

  • Post your thoughts, ideas, beliefs, likes, and dislikes
  • Speak to yourself. Give your current self the advice it needs to here and your past self advice it wish it had heard.
  • Study your curiosities and share what you learn
  • Actively improve your life and share the lessons and insights you came across

Once you are locked into what was sold to you as “the good life”

40-80 hour work weeks

A finite and predictable salary

45 years of work before you rest

It becomes 10x more difficult to get out.

Build while you still have little to no responsibility.

The Money And The Freedom

The Money And The Freedom

Human connection cannot scale.

If you want to build a billion-dollar company, then yes stick to one thing, but that’s not what I want… and I would argue 99% of people don’t actually want that.

Give me $1M a year and complete personal freedom. I’ll be good.

A Difficult Journey

A Difficult Journey

You will have many mental battles. Write your way through them.

You will have many personal battles. Write your way through them.

Believe You Can Earn More

Believe You Can Earn More

More people need to talk about money. Normalize it. Condition people into believing that they can earn as much as they want doing what they want. As cheesy as it sounds, self-belief is the first step in almost anything.

A thought comes before action.

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.
