- The loudest is a target
- Under-promise, over-deliver
- Humility in everything
- Don’t make excuses for your standards
- Always stay ahead
#2 Strength through conflict and competition

The next wave of influencers = investors.

This has NEVER happened before.

BEFORE - You couldn’t invest alongside the big names unless you were a big name.
In fact - the secret in investing was “fake scarcity.”

- only institutions
- minimum check sizes
- no public information

Attention Arbitrage

Or as I like to call it:

"How Kardashians became Billionaires w/ Glorified White Label Makeup"

With her Instagram posts.

She maximized your attention… into her bank account. Image
Then @KimKardashian copied her.

Then the rest of them whose names I can't remember joined in.
