Follow the Hate and You’ll Find the Truth

After launching our first and (extremely likely) last book we saw an interesting trend. Multiple people who said our work was terrible, useless and “BS” all did exactly what was expected… They bought it. Surely a few will slam it as being fake (we know it isn’t), a few will steal and try to emulate […]

How to Create a Robot

With all of the hype, noise and emotion around AI and robotics, we thought it would be good to highlight a way to create a “human robot”. Since we’re still several years away from robotics, we may as well create human robots in the near-term. Besides, a human robot can still be underpaid and deliver […]

Gambling Like a Boss: Always Bet On Black

Click Bait title! That said, we ‘re going to jump into a fun and controversial topic “Gambling”. According to a quick google search there are two definitions: 1) play games of chance for money and 2) take risky action in the hope of a desired result. Between these two, we think the first one is […]

Buying Time from Low-Income All The Way Up to High Income

We’ve talked a lot about “trading time for money” and how this is a poor way to get rich. Without being paid on performance metrics at minimum… the path to getting rich is significantly more difficult. The opposite is also true. If you can spend money to buy time it can accelerate your earnings. The […]

You are Richer Than You Think and What to Do When You’re Set

We recently received an email that we are paraphrasing for privacy purposes. In essence, a single forty year old man (“John”) has $2M and no interest in having kids. But. He does not believe he is “rich” and continues to work in a career he loathes. The problem? He didn’t take into account an eventual […]

The Greatest Time in History to Be Alive

Lets look back a mere 40 years. In 1977, we didn’t even have the internet. We didn’t have electric cars. We didn’t have “low cost airlines”. We didn’t have cell phones. We didn’t even have a CD player! There are so many things that we did not have that it could take a full day […]

Efficient Market Hypothesis Does Not Make Logical Sense

We are going to take an extremely complicated subject and attempt to make it understandable to anyone. We will fail miserably at this given that it’s our first attempt at describing the idea. In this case we’re using the readership as our Guinea Pig so thank you for reading! Essentially, we are going to walk […]

Creating Luck

According to the dictionary, luck is “Success or failure apparently brought by chance rather than through one’s own actions” and the more popular definition is “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity”. Unsurprisingly, we don’t like either of these definitions! Instead we define luck as “good fortune that goes to people who don’t need […]

Is Starting a Company the Least Risky Option to Get Rich?

For many people, getting a million or two is enough. In that case, it may not be the least risky option to get “rich” if that is all an individual needs. Once we start putting more parameters or restrictions around what qualifies as rich, you’ll start to get to some startling conclusions. Specifically, we’ll draw […]

Maximizing Retirement Accounts and Why They Will Be Meaningless to You

Retirement accounts are largely a scam. They are set up to make you feel richer than you are and create a false sense of security that does not exist. Most of the fund managers within the 401K structure also underperform the market making it an overall bad investment. That said, since many people will be […]

Risk Adjusted Financial Independence. Nothing Is Guaranteed Including Government Bonds.

No return is risk free. We know that many will say treasuries, are risk free but we’d argue that even those instruments have risk (government reliance, just ask Venezuela). Secondly, we don’t view any instrument including treasury bills as risk free because who knows what will happen to the *long-term* tax rate. If someone reaches […]
