Dear Whoever Needs To Hear This (I did, 3 years ago)

If your startup feels like you're pushing a boulder up a hill.

And you try this. try that. It just stays uphill.

You don't want to quit.. But time is ticking..

Ask yourself this question
if I wasn't ALREADY doing this. Would I do this?

If this whole project dissapeared tomorrow. And I had total freedom.

Is this the project I would pick to work on?
Are these the first people I would call to work on it with me?

If yes - keep calm and carry on
If no - end it
So much of what we do can be best explained by inertia.

we do what we do because we were already doing it.

That's not a good enough reason to spend your time and talent on it!

Make sure this is what you would choose TODAY!

Inertia is a b*tch!

GUEST THREAD about.... Buying Businesses.

*How to find a business to buy
*How to finance it so you only put down ~10% or less
*How to grow it
*How to sell it for a profit.

Handing the mic to my buddy @SievaKozinsky who does this for a living....
OK - let's say you wanted to buy a business and make $1M in the next 18 months.

Here's the playbook:
STEP 1 - Finding a Biz.

I recommend focusing on a space like "Home Services"
* landscaping
* Plumbing
* Electrical contractor

These businesses are profitable, you don't compete with FB/Amazon, and there are lots of bigger buyers when you want to sell.

So... everyone seems to think clubhouse is the "next big thing" - but I think it's going to fail.

Here's how I think it all goes down..
(disclaimer - I don't *want* clubhouse to fail. The world is more fun if it wins...

but wanting something doesn't mean it's going to happen. If it did, then guac would be default included inside every bag of chips)
OK let's pretend you are the CEO of Clubhouse.

First of all - f*ck yes. you f*cking did it!!!

People like your app. No, no - they LOVE your app.

This is the WILD story of a Instagram food accounts that are making 10M+ a year SELLING COOKIES

if you haven't heard about this... let's dive in.
last week - my buddy @benmlevy sent me a link to MyCookieDealer on instagram.

I checked them out - the cookies looked good... but - food pics on instagram? who cares?

Ben: dude these guys are insane. I'm pretty sure they do like $10M/year selling cookies on IG.

Me: 😳
So I started looking into it.

The short story -

The founders are a husband / wife duo.

The guy is an enormous body builder. His wife bakes him giant 1/2 LB cookies for his "cheat days".

He posted his wife's cookies on IG, and his fans wanted to buy some...

A few semi-controversial things I believe 👇
Real Estate has the highest % of "dumb rich people".

I'm not saying you're dumb if you're in real estate.

I'm saying -- if you want to get rich without needing to be a genius, real estate is your best bet.
Hard work is massively overrated.

*WHAT* you work on is far more important than *HOW HARD* you work.

I'm pretty lazy. But I'm happy and successful.

Janitors work hard. Backline cooks work hard. Hard work helps you win your game. Choose the right game.
