1/ Today is @MorningBrew's 7th birthday.

It's crazy how time flies.

In honor of #7, re-tweeting my favorite story of how a fortune cookie changed my life. (thread) 2/ @businessbarista and I started @morningbrew in 2015. But it was only a side project.

I took an internship at an investment bank after my junior year and had full intention of returning there after college.

I thought I'd spend 2 years in banking and go work in private equity

The Bolt CEO is playing 3D chess.

Everyone thinks he went after YC as beef marketing for Bolt.

My guess is he went after YC because he's going to launch a competitor. Image Not beef marketing for Bolt. Beef marketing for Ryan.

Pretty smart...

Currently @MrBeast is #1 trending on YouTube.

34m views in 18 hours on his Squid Games video.

He’s a beast. According to @CouRageJD, @MrBeast has gained 600k subscribers.

Even if Mr. Beast didn't get the video sponsored (which he did), he's currently at a $5.83 CPA (new YT subscriber).

Let's track where this ends at.

I'm going to take this strategy literally this week.

What are your favorite small market cap shitcoins or crypto projects? I have found my "Ape of the week".

$CT aka Crypto Twitter. Hoping for it to become the next $gm.

Note: This is not investment advice. This is not investing. This is gambling.

"Time is precious. Spend it wisely. Focus is a superpower. Enjoy your family. And just do the shit that makes you happy." -- @APompliano… "Time is the only asset in the world that can’t be purchased...

The funny thing is that I’ll continue to increase my financial net worth, but I’ll continue to lose my time net worth."

1/ Funny story about this room.

This is where @MorningBrew started.

Every AM @businessbarista and I would get up early and flyer every single table.

Every day, for months. 2/ Later, we wanted to raise a little money.

As undergrads, we reached out to the MBA Venture fund to invest.

We were a bit intimidated by the MBAs, but we knew they all read and thought they'd invest.

We were excited to have money to grow.
