Episode-2162- Can Anyone Be an Entrepreneur – It Depends — 6 Comments

  1. Will be listening to the complete show tonight, just scanned the show notes above and decided to add my observations in life on this topic.

    I think I have observed that people with high IQ have a definite advantage in life and in entrepreneurship too.

    However I have saw many high IQ guys fail in life often due to alcohol, fast vehicle crashes or other misadventures and bad divorces from crazy women etc.

    I have also saw many middle or low IQ guys do very well in life by being steady, consistent and simply good and reliable workers who looked after their health.

    It’s sort of like an expensive sports car will generally out run a tiny small car, yet many fast sports cars end up in the breakers yard long before their time while small well looked after cars can last decades and clock up huge miles.

      High IQ, Low IQ, mid range, etc. the above destroys more successful men than any other combination of things, though I would say drugs and simply include alcohol in the mix.

      And divorce from the vindictive/crazy is about as bad as it gets for ruining your life.  While I don’t endorse the MGTOW movement I sure as hell understand it.  In a divorce EVERYTHING is stacked against the man.

      I have seen men end up with alimony, child support, losing the house, plus being ordered to provide full health care when it was shown and accepted that the man never abused his wife, never cheated, etc.  And on top of it it was shown and accepted that the woman engaged in multiple acts of infidelity over many years with many partners.

      It was different when Dorothy and I got married, I guess I am getting old.  But if I was a 20 something today, I would never get married without an IRON CLAD prenuptial agreement.  Any woman that didn’t understand why, I’d know right then I don’t want to marry her.

      As for drugs, alcohol, fast cars, etc.  Success gives you freedom and not all freedom should be exercised to the full extent possible.  All of the sudden you are free to hit the bar at 3PM, you never think about spending money because you have plenty etc.  You have to rein it in or yea it will kill you, slow or fast but one way or another it catches up to you.

  2. High school drop out. Work my but off in mostly successful businesses. Pulling in over 500 k a year myself online currently. Had to stop making more money do to taxes and well me not willing to work for the IRS 40% of the time. I’m actually this year trying to again make less it’s a battle. No one gets it. If I make less I have more freedom and less tax. Think about what you wish!!! It’s not all good. Money is a problem. Just my quick 2 cents .

  3. Shows like this are one of the reasons I’m happy to support the MSB. Jack’s perspective, insights and stories in this one are “gold.”

    I’ve heard that “you don’t get what you deserve in life, but what you negotiate.”

    This episode brought that message home.
