7 movies every man must watch

1) Gattaca

A man cannot truly be a man if he doesn't believe in himself to the point of delusion....

even if that means fighting his own genetic limitations.

This movie seeks to answer the question "you limited by logic or are you powered by God?"
2) Rocky III

Contrary to popular belief, the hardest test for a man isn't how he reacts when he's at rock bottom.

It's how he reacts to his first success.

As Mickey told Rocky "the worst thing happened to you that could happen to any fighter... you got civilized"
3) A Bronx tale

"Rich Dad, Poor Dad" by Robert Kiyosaki in the context of growing up as an Italian American kid in the Bronx.

This movie will teach you how to be a man and how to pick your ideal wife (seriously).
4) Predator

Group of the chaddest and baddest cigar smoking gym bros are sent to the jungle with a ton of guns, ammunition and explosives to fight an indestructible alien specie.

WTF else do you want?
5) The River Wild

Most overlooked movie about masculinity on this list.

Most will remember this movie because of Meryl Streep and Kevin Bacon.

Few will remember the transition David Strathairn made from soy dad to chad dad.

Highly recommended movie especially for Dads.
6) The Founder

Often in life it's not about being the smartest man in the room or having the best idea.

It's about who has the most cunning and ambition and no one had more cunning and ambition than Ray Kroc.
7) L.A Confidential

I love this film for many reasons but I'm putting it on the list because it forces men to question how far they will go to defend their moral values.

Will they go as far as to break the law?

Expect tons of sex, corruption, violence and outright degeneracy.
I know a lot of you are probably thinking "but what about the Godfather and Casino and Goodfellas and all those bad ass mafioso movies you didn't include?"

Fuck I dunno... How about expanding your horizons a little bit?

I did include Predator at least...

How a skinny computer geek from New Jersey went from making $15 Million working with companies like Sony and HBO to having only $143 in his savings account to becoming one of the biggest personal brands on the internet

The INSANE story of @jaltucher


1/ James Altucher's career started conventionally; grew up in the suburbs, went to college, graduated and got a job in the city.

His first job was working in the IT department of HBO which led him to produce a show called 111:am where he interviewed prostitutes, junkies and..
random street characters at 3am around NYC.

He did the show for 2.5 years but it never really took off.

2/ Meanwhile, he started helping HBO fix their websites which led him to start his first business "Reset, Inc".

Reset built websites for big media companies and brands like

Having a personal brand is your # 1 leverage point on the internet.

Authority boils down to one thing "what do you bring to the table?"

How to make $1,000-$5000+ per month from your free Twitter account

Even if you have:

NO skills (seriously)
NO experience
NO connections
NO products or offers

One of the WORST assumptions people make before they start a monetized Twitter account is they believe they need to be the # 1 expert in their craft.

This is 100% BS and if you give me just 5 minutes of your attention I will explain why.

Keep reading 👇
Making money on Twitter is a 4-step process

1) Create valuable content
2) Build an audience
3) Make them an offer
4) Get paid

Due to imposter syndrome and the false belief that one needs to be an expert in order to do step 1

99% don't even start.

Sick of writing tweets that flop??

Here's 4 types of tweets people are *biologically wired* to engage with.

Apply these to your tweets if you want to 10x your engagement

Quick //Thread//
1) People respond to what's NEW

Our brains are wired to seek novelty.

This doesn't mean you have to be 1000% original to stand out

You can offer an opposing opinion or add a unique spin to an existing idea.

Here's @thedankoe doing the former by going against "hustle mindset"
2) People respond to what’s ENTERTAINING

If you have a good sense of humour, are creative or just a cool person overall

Then your secret weapon is your ability to entertain your audience.

Look how @lawrencekingyo does it here:

How to build a profitable personal brand on Twitter (and make $1,000-5,000+ per month)

> The *BEST* way to monetize your Twitter account (w/out thousands of followers, platitudes or Gumroad discounting)
> The # 1 asset you have.... but you're NOT using

# 1 mistake people make when it comes to growing and monetising their Twitter account?

They are BORING.

Their profile is boring.

Their tweets are boring.

Their threads are boring.

Why is this?

Because they've read too many bad growth guides that tell them to do the same..

> Write formulaic "platitude" tweets
> Rewriting big account tweets in the hopes of a RT
> Trying to "cheat the algo" with RT groups

This WILL get you some dopamine-rich short term engagement..

But if your goal is to build an account that brings you hot leads and..
