“I’d like to live as a poor man with a lot of money.” —Pablo Picasso
Do you want to be rich or do you want to look rich?
I’ve seen an inverse relationship between the amount of money I make and the desire (need?) to share said amount with others.
The more I make, the less I want people to know.
What three words would you say to your 18-year-old self?
(You gotta read the replies on this one!)
The New York Times' version of Wordle has changed the word list from the original, and therefore altered solutions so that its version of the game gives different solutions compared to the original version.
Die-hards of the game (like me) probably noticed some—ahem—changes in our beloved Wordle. The new owners changed the master word list and it screwed everything up for the rest of us.
This is why we can’t have nice things.
Ten Minute Podcast: Talk Cute
I’m linking this for the format. Not necessarily the content (although it is very funny). I’ve talked to maybe half a dozen entrepreneurs who’ve cancelled their podcast in the last few months.
Why did they cancel them?
Simple: too much work.
I like TMP because they don’t take themselves too seriously. They have a super loose format. And the production quality isn’t good, but it’s not bad. Key distinction.
I think a lot more folks would find success with their podcasts if they didn’t take themselves so seriously. Having fun is the key to sustainability. So have some fun already!
Recently fell down the Alex Hormozi rabbit hole. I know I’m late to the party, but his book $100M Offers is so good I can’t put it down. It’s all about how to create “grand slam offers” and I’m here for it.
He’s also got a free companion training to the book that does a pretty good job of summing up the major points.
I’ll put the first video below. If you like it, here’s a link to where you can get the full training.
