On today’s podcast, I’m sharing this random smattering of lessons on money and life.⠀
1) Simplify everything.⠀
2) Risk = Probability x Magnitude.⠀
4) Never delay gratification.⠀
5) Know your net worth, relative to your lifetime earnings.⠀
6) Don’t half-ass anything. (Whole-ass a few things.)⠀
7) When you’re not at work, don’t be at work.⠀
8) Yes, and.
9) Money can’t make you happy, but a lack of money can make you unhappy.⠀
10) Every conversation about money is really a conversation about values.⠀
11) The less you try, the better.⠀
12) Work with your nature, not against it. ⠀
13) The thing should be its own reward.⠀
14) Practice radical self-reliance.⠀
15) Achieve being through doing.⠀
16) What is stated, happens.⠀
I elaborate on each of these in today’s episode. In addition, I’m also sharing my mini-keynote from FinCon on the importance of authenticity and passion in online business.
