Building a Recession Proof Life: Ten Steps

The photo is of Socrates “If you want to be wrong, follow the masses”. With consumer confidence at an all time high and the “Trump Economy” in full effect with tax breaks, it appears that everyone is ready for another bull run. In this case, it is much more likely that we see a recession. […]

The main problem with frugality is that your life becomes too plain and boring and when you’re older the things you […]

Winning in Each Stage of Life

Making transitions in life is probably one of the most under-rated skills. Similar to any high speed sport, the need to change speeds, directions and “run the game at your pace” is a critical skill. This occurs in life as well as we move from cranking long and hard hours to saving/investing to spending as […]

Updated Life Philosophy

We’ve been blogging for a long time (over 5 years is certainly a long time to us). Our beliefs in life have evolved quite a bit so it is probably a good idea to update all of our readers on our latest philosophies. The good news? A lot of the big items remain the same: […]

Three Downsides of Success: Scaling, Becoming Desensitized and Higher Expectations

We haven’t done a life related post in quite some time so here goes nothing. After hitting the exit button on a Company (we’ll have a follow up to this post later), your net-worth typically goes up vertically (step function) assuming you never included the value in your calculations. This means you are now tied […]

Investment Banking Compensation 2017 – an Up Year!

We are updating the total Investment Banking compensation numbers for 2017. Excluded from this overview is investment banking analysts as the variability has not moved much.

What Happens When You Execute With Efficiency

When I was in my mid-20s I realized I had been lied to by a lot of people. They didn’t mean to spread lies, but good intentions do not change the facts. I always got good grades in college and high school and did what my teachers and parents asked me to do and didn’t complain. […]

Quality of Life and Time: 15 Things to Remember

At the end of the day (assuming no major leaps in technology) time is the one finite quality that we all have in common. We all die eventually. As you accumulate more and more “digits” also known as money, the time you have remains largely constant and the value of the time you have left […]

Q&A Announcement and Introduction to Personal Finance Book

This has been a banner year and unquestionably the best year in history. We’re completing the sale of an asset by December 2017 that will come in just shy of 5x annual earnings (not bad considering 36 months to 48 months is the norm for the industry it serves). The real benefit is that it […]

Crypto Currency a Basic Introduction… The Future.

Decentralized crypto currencies are here to stay and will revolutionize the way we live. The naysayers typically bring up topics such as quantum computers (solved with a fork), 51% attack problems (would be self-defeating as value would go to zero after spending on compute power) and government regulation (which was unsuccessful with BitTorret for the […]

When to Sell Your First Company (Part 1…)

As many of you know we’re selling an online business over the next 3 months. The first part is probably the toughest: deciding when to sell. It’s important because you’ll need to set it up in a way that the buyer is interested and you no longer have interest in scaling the business. In addition, […]

The Next Big Market and the Underlying Truth About… The Brain.

We get a lot of questions about where people will spend money. We gave a ton away in our book, Efficiency, but we’ll give another one out for free. We’re giving it out for free because it’s a rapidly growing market, we have no interest in building a business around it and it has every […]

Getting Rich and Laying Low

One of the main items we preach here is getting rich and pretending to have nothing. We write the way we do because if we state something as “fact” it makes it a lot more likely that people will try it. In school most people are taught to be “open minded” as their liberal teachers […]

Everything Comes Down to Ego: Feed it to Get What You Want

The reason why people want to be famous? They want to be the center of attention (we have no idea why anyone would want this). The reason people want the Patek watch, Ferrari and big house? To get more attention. The reason why people buy brand name clothing? To get more attention. And. Of course. The […]
