Seek wealth, not money or status. Wealth is having assets that earn while you sleep. Money is how we transfer time and wealth. Status is your place in the social hierarchy.
Ignore people playing status games. They gain status by attacking people playing wealth creation games. Focus on a positive-sum game, not on a zero-sum game.
You’re not going to get rich renting out your time. You must own equity - a piece of a business - to gain your financial freedom.
Set personal hourly rate. If fixing a problem will save less than your hourly rate, ignore it. If outsourcing a task will cost less than your hourly rate, outsource it.
Learn to sell. Learn to build. If you can do both, you will be unstoppable. To do this arm yourself with specific knowledge, accountability, and leverage.
Specific knowledge is often highly technical or creative. It cannot be outsourced or automated. You can find it by pursuing your genuine curiosity and passion.
The most accountable people have singular, public, and risky brands: Trump, Kanye, and Elon. So take business risks under your own name and Society will reward you.
Fortunes require leverage. Business leverage comes from capital, people, products, and the Internet with no marginal cost of replication. (code and media)
Code and media are permissionless leverage. They're the leverage behind the newly rich. You can create software and media that works for you while you sleep.
If you can't code, write books and blogs, and record videos and podcasts. Build your audience on a topic/niche that you like or are passionate about.
There are no get-rich-quick schemes. That's just someone else getting rich off you. So avoid shortcuts and think long-term.
