7 Stoic Principles Every Entrepreneur Must Embrace

by / ⠀Blog / October 21, 2016

Philosophy’s absence from the business world is a crucial mistake. By and large ignored by popular culture and forgotten by the media, modern philosophy has been delegated strictly to the classrooms by its own doing. Rather than adapting to the times, modern philosophers have retreated into an ivory tower of abstract intellectualism and esoteric gloating. Come on guys, you’re giving philosophy a bad name! For those of us…

Two Powerful Strategies to Live Better and Be More Productive

by / ⠀Blog / October 19, 2016

When I think about strategies for better living, I consider the rule of E: efficiency, effectiveness, and essentialism. Recently, I’ve been on a kick about cultivating deep focus. In the age of social media and modern technology, we’ve lost the ability to focus.

4 Lies Your Parents Told You About Money and Life

by / ⠀Blog / October 9, 2016

I love my parents. I really do. But when it comes to their thoughts on money and my life trajectory… They warped me. Badly. Sorry for being blunt, but they did. I don’t hold any resentment.

If You’re Not Solving Somebody’s Problem It’s Time to Reconsider Why You’re an Entrepreneur

by / ⠀Blog / October 4, 2016

Let’s get a few things straight. Talking about entrepreneurship, just to talk about entrepreneurship, and then selling a “private video series” at the end of the talking, isn’tactual entrepreneurship.

Why I Worship The God of Boredom. It’s 6:30am and I’m at it again. I’m writing this thing that you’re reading. Every morning, just as the sun is coming up, I sit down at my desk to write. I’m talking deliberate writing, with a serious expression on my face. This isn’t a game. I don’t do this out of novelty. I don’t do this for money (most of…

STOP NITPICKING. START STARTING.

by / ⠀Blog / September 5, 2016

About two years ago, my friend Marcel Benson (Barry) wanted to start a watch company. A lot of people probably thought that was a dumb idea. Watches? The world doesn’t need more watches!
