“If you want to take the island, you need to burn the boats.” — Tony Robbins.
Sometimes scams are hidden in plain sight. That goes for the self-help world, too.
A few years back, my fiancée surprised me: she got us both tickets to Tony Robbins’ flagship event, Unleash The Power Within, in London.
I was ecstatic. I’d finally get to see the man I looked up to and admired so much, learn kick-ass techniques to master the mind and transform my life for good. …
The NFT tsunami shook the world earlier this year. The small tide that carried CryptoKitties in 2017 became a flood with the likes of Hashmasks and CryptoPunks and the mind-boggling amounts spent on them more recently.
Back in 2015, Nerdy Nuts was a small business run out of South Dakota that no one was paying attention to.
Fast forward 18 months, and it had grown into a $500k per month operation.
When I saw these numbers my jaw dropped below ground level.
How did they do it, I wondered? A combination of TikTok’s scale, product “drops” and the power of scarcity.
How the journey began is a classic tale of entrepreneurship.
Peterson worked as a store manager in a clothing shop, whilst Mount, her husband, would often get lunch at a nearby café.

“It’s not always that we need to do more, but rather that we need to focus on less.” — Nathan W. Morris
Flow states are the secret sauce to getting more done in less time. It sounds woo-hoo, but it’s not. It simply works. I’ve used these states of being in “the zone” to produce more content, faster than ever before.
Most of society is stuck in industrial-age thinking: it’s an economy based on time and effort as the key measures of productivity. Focus is placed upon the hours you clock, rather than the actual outputs you produce.
Leaving corporate life was a tough choice.
Last week, I handed in my notice — leaving a well-paid, comfortable job for the uncertainties of creative life. It felt like taking the safety pants off.
After 7 years in the corporate world, I’d had enough. Enough of the routine, the lack of purpose, the dread of turning up to a job that didn’t bring me any joy or sense of fulfillment.
I’d had enough of working for the system when the system was no longer working for me. It’s a two-way street, and it had become a one-way dead-end.
“I would consider all the movies that I’ve done failures.” — Woody Allen

The man behind the iconic Annie Hall, Casino Royle and Midnight in Paris built a flourishing career that spanned decades. His work left a lasting legacy on an entire industry.
I’ve distilled 9 patterns that lead Allen to great heights. Use those as fuel for your own creative journey.
Fear of failure is what holds most people back. They don’t dare to achieve their dreams because of how they might look. They’re insecure.
I’ve gone down down the BitClout rabbit hole for the past few days. Some say it’s the future of social media and more; some say it’s a scam. It’s exciting to watch and the growth is insane.
The platform is worth over $1 billion only a few months in.
As I did my research, I came across the story of Blockchain entrepreneur Mario Nawfal and his project, BitcloutHoldings. It took off and raised $1 million 10 minutes after launch; then another $4 million the next day. The project shot up to rank seven on the site.
Nawfal shared his key…
“There are two ways to make money, you bundle or unbundle.” — Jim Barksdale
Today’s marketplace is a ruthless battle for survival. You need differentiation to stand out and slash your way out of the jungle. You don’t need to reinvent the wheel or come up with some mind-blowing innovation, though.
Try the unbundling technique to find new ideas and capture market share instead. Your next big project might just be around the corner.
In the new passion economy era, successful businesses serve narrow niches. …
Imagine you had a constant stream of ideas floating around in your brain. All you’d have to do is dig out your endless list of ideas any time you look for a solution to a problem, a new project to launch or an article to write.
Many people struggle when it comes to ideation. Luckily, it can be learned just like any other skill. It’s a skill you can’t afford to neglect.
“I have no respect for the SEC (Security Exchange Commission)” — Elon Musk on national TV
There’s an online war going on. “Twitter’s a warzone”, as Musk described it. “I do not respect the SEC….I do not respect them”, he added casually.
His warzone tweets have real-world consequences, though. There’s blood on the streets and virtual heads are rolling on bottomless floors right now.
