Definitely! Sugar and carbs wreck me.

Try a high protein/ high fat meal plan for a couple weeks and see how you feel. The first week might be rough but it's game on after that.


I've always been hi protein/high fat. When I have carbs it totally wrecks me. Just wonder if this is bad for me. Maybe I'll throw some complex carbs in once and a while.

Wealthy people don't focus on saving IMO. They focus on earning. Then they focus on keeping. Top line, bottom line, never stops. It's an obsession basically...

They have goals for their money. They're constantly calculating returns.

And I've found they're often impatient. Waiting means lost opportunity, so their version of waiting is their money rolled into something else until the jackpot opportunity arrives.

Wealthy people act differently from "regular" people IMO...


Totally agree.

The "fail" in the savings approach is for the average person, even clearing $100k/yr, you're looking at a deal breaking amount of time to save sufficient startup capital. And then they dont have the stones (or too much family responsibility) to sink several years worth of savings on a startup.

Remember most of society doesnt have 3 months of income in savings.

Shoestring budget bootstrap startups are definitely a young mans game.

Exactly, that tells you everything you need to know about Wheelsís entrepreneurial abilities, if he wants to get where he aspires to get he needs a complete change in mentality, approach and strategy, unfortunately most of those things come from within, you either have it or you donít, with a caveat as always there are exceptions and anomalies, letís hope, for his sake, that heís one of them.

- Without Fear -

QUOTE
Top Gear: In eleven years at the company youíve met a huge number of your customers, can you tell us what a typical Lamborghini owner is like?

Stephan Winkleman: It seems very superficial, but itís really male. Usually, theyíre all self-made men Ė ranging from those in the 20s right up to men in their 70s. Theyíre very proud of their product, and they have no fear to be seen in a car like this.

And when I speak to them, I feel that they buy into a world, not only into a product. So itís also a lifestyle, an idea they see behind that. And they enjoy the car as something that is rewarding them for the hard work theyíre doing, or a dream that came true after, say, saving for 20 years.

Well I am not talking startup capital of a super-huge amount, just enough to start a small business and build from there. But I am curious, how does one start a business without at least some money initially?

Everyone needs money to start but that money doesnít necessarily need to come from you.

I could start a business with your money for argumentís sake, you save your pennies for a life time, I come along and make you give it to me in under 15 minutes icon_mrgreen.gif

Okay, send me a check biggrin.gif I understand not every entrepreneur uses their own money, but an investor or bank isn't going to give a guy with no business experience money right?

Depends on the guy, they give it to your personality not your experience, when you have experience they chase you, you donít chase them.

Thatís all you are getting for free, the rest itís in my upcoming book icon_mrgreen.gif
