The myth of having to start off when you’re young is just that, a myth. While employers might be as dumb as a toast to hire just 20-year-olds, starting your own business has no expiration date. So what of you don’t know how to use Facebook or Twitter, you didn’t know how to drive and you learned that. Plus you have something those 20-year-olds don’t have. Continue reading Nobody cares how old you are.
Too many of us are afraid to start something new, it doesn’t matter if it’s something big like buying a home or something small like trying out a new recipe. We fear failure on every level, but you have to ask yourself, has anyone dumber ever done this before? Continue reading Has anyone dumber ever done this before?
I first ran across this video on Reddit, on the small business Ideas subreddit. I love the idea of people doing what they love. Too many of us are focused on how to make as much money as humanly possible. And I don’t think that’s the right approach. When hit with the reality of how hard it is to run a business most of us fold. Did you ever take a moment to think why that is? Continue reading Jalisa Goodwin – Juice by Jah
Most people look to the rest of the world before making a move. The problem with that is the rest of the world might be wrong. Continue reading Make your own rules
Before I even answer this question you have to ask yourself if this question comes out of inexperience or fear. If it comes from inexperience then you just don’t know that you can make way more money working for yourself than for someone else (I’ll get into it in a moment). If this question comes out of fear then you won’t work for yourself no matter what, you’re looking for a safe employee life and this post might not before you.

It always surprises me how many people fall for getting rich quick schemes. I don’t get it, do they think someone found a way to make a million dollars overnight and is sharing it with the world? Why would someone do that? Isn’t it better to just keep it to himself? Continue reading Get rich quick schemes are for morons
When people think of a businessman they think only of the good parts. Like having money being in control of your time and buy yourself nice gadgets and cars. What they don’t see is the stress you have to deal with on a daily basis. You have to learn to moderate between being weak and being strong otherwise, you will break.
Power is not a single attribute it’s a collection of many. Your focus, determination, creativity or patients are limited each day. If you’re not careful you might spend them too quickly and when you need them you’re going to have to synthesize them. But it’s not the same, take synthesized focus for instance. It feels like you driving in a car without any gas, every inch feels like hell. And what about tomorrow? You feel spent before you even start.
I feel the same when I write. I’m not the type of person that can just sit down and write 15,000 words. I write only when I have something to say. So I might have days when I write posts for the next two weeks, and I might have days when I can’t focus on anything. But when you don’t allow yourself to be weak, how can you ever be strong?
