For the last month, I have been actively going out and gaming 9s and 10s. I share my secrets with you here in this “Gaming 9s and 10s” Blog Series.

First of all, What is a 9 or 10?

A 9 or 10 is usually the hottest girls in a particular area. She’s genetically gifted, and also has the style and beauty routines to match her natural looks. She knows how to flirt and leverage her natural gifts to the best of her abilities. She always looks calm and gorgeous in public places.

In the world of humans now in 2011, a 10 to me would be someone like Adriana Lima. Obviously, any Victoria’s Secret model would be in high demand. So my scale really is a little bit lower. Let’s scale it back to the average population of a major city like San Francisco.

For the most part, a 10 to me is someone who has very high replication value and long term compatibility with me. For non-girlfriend material, she just has to be easy to get along with and have an overall positive outlook on life.

So let me share with you the important game lessons I have learned gaming 9s and 10s that will help you speed up your development curve: Read more

Inspiration: Rich Dad’s ABCs of building a business team that wins.

  • Business is easy, managing people is hard
  • Entrepreneurs create jobs, they don’t need jobs
  • The difference between a business person leader and a self-employed entrepreneur is the ability to lead teams
  • Under pressure, the code becomes clearer. Sharper. Calmer. In support of each other
  • Our mission: Elevating the financial and relationship well being of humanity
  • Google: To organize the worlds information and make it universally accessible and useful
  • Living your own business life
  • Never abandon your teammate in need.
  • When a code is established, do it early on when the heat is off.
  • Under pressure, the team with the strongest code survives. I.e. Military men under fire still need to stay calm and work as a team.
  • My own father used to tell me, “always be at least 5 minutes early. This gives you time to prepare and think, and you will be more equipped to take advantage of opportunities and avoid mistakes. Remember the 5 minute rule, son.”

Lessons:

  1. We have optimized affiliate products quite well to our mailing list and this is starting to pay off. More product sales to come as we add more traffic and develop a better converting page.
  2. The cool thing about online businesses is that expenses are low. Minus our aweber email program and hosting, we don’t have a lot of other expenses. However, moving to a dedicated server will cost us more but this is necessary to maintain the traffic growth from PUA Lingo.
  3. Again, my focus is PASSIVE INCOME – this means that we are NOT taking on client work and time intensive projects which are not scale-able.

What Is You Gift?

What is Your Gift?

One of the key business lessons I learned was to focus on your strengths, and try to neutralize your weaknesses in the most efficient way possible. Spending life worrying about what you’re not good at is just painful and not much fun.

Ironically, that’s what school teaches us to do. Raise your grades! Be good at everything. Stay quiet and behave. In the real business world, leaders are born from leveraging their strengths and being able to see the strengths in other team members.

Instead, school puts social pressure on us to become best students. When I was in undergraduate business school, the best kids who started their own businesses didn’t have the highest GPAs. They maintained average Bs while they worked on their side businesses. A close friend of mine to this day, EH made and sold a website about student ringtones for $50,000 his junior year. His GPA was around 2.8 / 4.0.

So how to do find out what we are good at? Many management consultants have tried, and business books such as Strength Finder 2.0 and personality tests attempt to answer the question via large scale surveys and measurements. Read more

Marilyn Monroe: Lessons in Fame and Fortune

In finishing The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe, I couldn’t help but compare and contrast her life with another star of her era, Audrey Hepburn. There are many differences between the two stars, including finances, children, family and fashion. Perhaps most importantly are the parallels between what makes their stars “sparkle”. Marilyn always invoked a sex goddess, with a child-like vulnerability. Audrey, on the other hand, had a royal way about her boy-ish like features that made you adore her. Unlike Audrey, Marilyn’s legacy delivered confusion, pain and hurt. Audrey’s legacy was one of charity and giving back to the world.

Press or no press, the timing and death of Norma Jeane added to the mysteriousness of her long recorded addiction to sleeping pills. Another star of the Fox studio in the 1940s was Elizabeth Talor. When she died in March 23rd of this year, the press coverage was minimal. Seeing a once beautiful girl age and slowly grow old perhaps takes the idealization of the sex goddess away. But reality sets in, and one must wonder if living life is a lot harder than simply dying. My lesson from Marilyn’s biography was her ability to charm. Her oscillating contrast of superwoman and vulnerable girl, and her ability to smile for the cameras and light up a room. All this she did despite her ongoing clinical depression.

The Beautiful Yet Vulnerable Marilyn (Norma Jean)

Another issue is that of wealth. The estate of Marilyn Monroe only had $4000 in her name when she died. Her estate started making money from her work and in 1977, finally paid her mother Gladys the money she promised from her will, years after her death in 1962. Wealth is the ability to make money and create money, while having all that you need. Simply spending everything you earn does not make you rich. Rather, making more than enough money and maintaining this stability for your needs and to make you happy – that, to me, is wealth.

“This is the story of a girl named Norma Jeane Mortensen. She thrived despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles and almost impossible odds. She created and became a woman more fascinating than even she believed possible. And in the face of her own failinga mind, she battled to keep that creation alive – not for her, but for us.

Indeed, Marilyn Monroe did exist. Even through the woman insider her was at times doubtful of that fact, we knew it better than she did. She spent so much of her energy, her own will, projecting an image of impossible beauty and ultimate joy. Yet, as the end neared, her experience of who she truly was drifted farther and farther from that ideal – until she found it impossible to pretend anymore. Her choice, as awful as it may have been, was this: Admit to the world that Marilyn Monroe had become nothing more than smoke and mirrors, or die. On August 5th, 1962, Marilyn Monroe gave the world all she had left to give – the knowledge that she was, and always would be… ours.” – J. Randy Taraborrelli
