Here’s Why You Should Study Tycoons
Before you can attempt something truly big, you will need the courage.
Before you can have the courage, you will need the knowledge.
Do you have what it takes to succeed at the tycoon level?
Here are three reasons why any serious entrepreneur needs to study tycoons:
– Tycoons are creative problem-solvers. While most people give up on their goals after hitting an obstacle or having a set-back, tycoons almost always find a way to get the deal done and keep their momentum rolling forward. Where there’s a will there’s most certainly a way.
– They are unstoppable. They are real life “Terminators.” Friedrich Nietzsche is famous for having written about the “will to power,” which he believed to be the primary driving force in humans. Specifically, it’s the ambition and drive for achievement, recognition, and the highest possible position in life. Tycoons tend to be the best examples of people with this type of drive.
– And last but not least, they are builders. They build companies, edifices, and empires. The best ones leave behind a legacy as well.
You can forget about goals for most things in life because they just as often serve as demotivators as motivators. What you want to do instead is create and utilize systems. Think of systems as the business version of an individual’s habits. In The Tycoon Playbook we stress building systems for wealth accumulation through acquisitions.
In this video Scott talks about how he’s used systems to become a very wealthy man. It starts off a bit slow because he’s giving a talk to a group of patients suffering from a certain affliction but quickly gets very relevant and interesting for us. Pay close attention to the story about how he and a friend approached dating back in high school to grasp the principle. Scott being goal-oriented would pick a specific girl to ask out. Then when he finally worked up the courage to approach her she would inform him at least half the time that she already had a boyfriend. As a result he didn’t meet many girls. In contrast his friend was focused on building and refining a system for simply meeting as many girls as possible. At this he succeeded spectacularly.
By the way, Scott published a book called How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big a few years ago and is publishing a new one this fall o persuasion titled How to Win Bigly.
Billionaire Peter Thiel talks about he thinks billionaires create value.
“The 24 Hour War” The Ford/Ferrari Rivalry [TRAILER]
This looks like a must see for those who enjoy films and documentaries about business. This one is about the intense rivalry between Ferrari and Ford. Back in the early 1960s Ford thought it had a done deal with Ferrari to acquire the famous supercar designer and maker. When Ford executives flew to Italy to sign the paperwork, Enzo killed the deal.
The second season of SHO’s Billions has begun. The first season was very good and the second looks promising as well.
Here’s the trailer for new season.
Marcus Meets Murchison-Hume
In 2008 Max Kater founded Los Angeles-based Murchison-Hume a maker of non-toxic cleaning products. She was motivated by a desire to make cleaning products which her son wouldn’t be allergic to.
As is normally the case with companies appearing on The Profit, Murchison-Hume is in crisis. The main reason for this is that Max creates products for herself not her market. Her husband, Peter, who has a day job is subsidizing the business with his income.
Shortly after arriving at the company Marcus mentions that he finds the brand name an odd choice for a cleaning product line. It really does sound like a law firm. Continue reading
