Thanks for the reminder at 35:30: “Goals without actions are purely dreams.”·1 like·
33:30 Winnet’s book rec “The Rules of Wealth” by Richard Templar. Not familiar with that title or the author, but will have to check it out.·
Winnet’s comments about fake gurus talking about how successful they are and showing off their home or car as signals of self-proclaimed success reminds me of the Game of Thrones quote: “Any man who must say ‘I am the King,’ is no true king.”·2 likes·
7:25 The scam in a nutshell: “Contrepreneurs telling wantrepreneurs how to be entrepreneurs.” As he says earlier in the pod, we all want shortcuts to success in life and work. I’m certainly not immune to this.·
@Sam love that you interviewed Winnet. I’m a big fan of his Contrepreneur vids and work to expose “fake gurus” (I can’t stand those charlatans/scam artists). I laughed out loud when he mentioned the book at 3:48 “The One-Minute Millionaire”.·1 like·
Thanks @David! He reached out to me back when he was more unknown and I loved what he was up to. Super nice guy and it’s great that he’s creating this sort of content. Pity that most people that watch it are the ones that don’t need to hear it as much as the ones following the click bait make me instantly rich followers. I’m sure he’s making a difference though 🙌a year ago·
