SquidDAO: Web3 Project Deep-Dive: Part Crypto Hedge Fund, Part NFT DAO. An Anonymous Conspiracy for Mutual Enrichment

SquidDAO is an “Economic Flywheel denominated in Ethereum.” What does that mean? Good question, I wondered too. It's basically a conspiracy amongst anonymous people on the internet to make money together. And anyone can join! I dug in with a few members to see what it's all about.  They sell NFTs, they issue tokens, they invest a treasury… they earn money! And they share it with token and NFT holders.  This is my first pseudonymous podcast as well as the longest one I've ever done. In this episode, we explore a relatively new web3 project, Squid DAO, with a few guys I only know by their online handles. Squid DAO is described as an economic flywheel backed by Ethereum and is part company, part DeFi investment fund, and part NFT project. SQUID is currently trading for roughly the value of the assets it holds in the treasury, which could make it a great investment opportunity. Squid DAO is a great microcosm of the world of web3 as it is essentially a megatron of the various forks of web3 projects, which makes it a great learning opportunity. To start off the episode, each team member provides a little on their background and how they got involved in Squid DAO. Big Squid has a background in FinTech, got started in crypto in December of 2017 and eventually left his regular job to be a crypto DeFi degen full time and went on to work full time on Squid DAO. Squid Steed says he's very new compared to most people in the degen space. He's worked in TradFi for 12 years and says he is mainly focused on top-down optimization of Squid DAO. ZOption went from working at a big bank to starting a couple tech companies, and he got started in crypto in 2016 as a miner. He first got involved in Squid DAO by making an early investment and realizing the DAO could use some help. We then go over a 101 of what Squid DAO is. Based on a TradFi web2 description, it is a SPAC that raised ETH. Squid DAO is now tasked with putting the ETH to work, and it can be described as a profitable tech company with different revenue streams. The DAO is an investment vehicle through which the more ETH comes in. The more ETH is invested, and the more strategies there are to look into. Squid DAO has three revenue sources from forked protocols: the first is similar to raising money from bonds, the second is interest earned from putting ETH to work, and the third is NFT auctions. Also important is the opportunity for users to interact with the DAO and contribute. We also talk about why the team chooses to be anonymous and how trust is built. ZOption says that wallets and blockchains never lie and you know everyone's position. The team members all concur that it is easier to stay anonymous and that contributors prove themselves through their work rather than politics. The culture and people in the Discord, including the big whales, are helpful and respectful, and everyone is working towards a common goal but in different ways. Members are allowed to come up and present their strategies to be approved by the DAO's governance. We explore the economics of the DAO and why it is denominated in ETH rather than dollars. It can be valued via income derivative, the multiple on the treasury, or what it is trading at against what is on the balance sheet. Recently, a new governance proposal was passed making Squid and NFTs productive assets so that users may better run analyses. ETH is considered the best index and essentially operates like cash for the DAO.  We wrap up the episode by talking about how to learn more and get involved. Squid DAO's Twitter and Discord are great ways to learn more, but the best way to gain mastery is by investing your own money. If looking to get involved, you can help with whatever skills you have to offer, be it marketing, as a developer, a degen or coding strategist, or someone with a web2 background.

I've been carrying them in my head for thirty years, and I've been living them. Over time (sadly or fortunately), the thing I got really good at was looking at businesses and figuring out the point of maximum leverage to actually create wealth and capture some of that created wealth. - Naval Ravikant   Seek wealth, not money or status. - Naval Ravikant   Wealth is having assets that earn while you sleep. - Naval Ravikant   Money is how we transfer time and wealth. - Naval Ravikant   Ignore people playing status games. They gain status by attacking people playing wealth creation games.    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.  - Naval Ravikant   The most important skill for getting rich is becoming a perpetual learner. You have to know how to learn anything you want to learn. The old model of making money is going to school for four years, getting your degree, and working as a professional for thirty years. But things change fast now. Now, you have to come up to speed on a new profession within nine months, and it's obsolete four years later. But within those three productive years, you can get very wealthy. - Naval Ravikant     Important quotes from the podcast by Naval on Leverage:   “Give me a lever long enough and a place to stand, and I will move the earth.”  —Archimedes    To get rich, you need leverage. Leverage comes in labor, comes in capital, or it can come through code or media. But most of these, like labor and capital, people have to give to you. For labor, somebody has to follow you. For capital, somebody has to give you money, assets to manage, or machines. - Naval Ravikant   Fortunes require leverage. Business leverage comes from capital, people, and products with no marginal cost of replication (code and media). - Naval Ravikant   Capital and labor are permissioned leverage. Everyone is chasing capital, but someone has to give it to you. Everyone is trying to lead, but someone has to follow you. - Naval Ravikant   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. - Naval Ravikant   If you can't code, write books and blogs, record videos and podcasts. - Naval Ravikant   Leverage is a force multiplier for your judgment. - Naval Ravikant   Apply specific knowledge, with leverage, and eventually you will get what you deserve. - Naval Ravikant   “We live in an age of infinite leverage, and the economic rewards for genuine intellectual curiosity have never been higher. Following your genuine intellectual curiosity is a better foundation for a career than following whatever is making money right now.” - Naval Ravikant   Important Quotes from the podcast on Business and Entrepreneurship   There is no skill called “business.” Avoid business magazines and business classes. - Naval Ravikant   You have to work up to the point where you can own equity in a business. You could own equity as a small shareholder where you bought stock. You could also own it as an owner where you started the company. Ownership is really important.     Everybody who really makes money at some point owns a piece of a product, a business, or some IP. That can be through stock options if you work at a tech company. That's a fine way to start.    But usually, the real wealth is created by starting your own companies or even by investing. In an investment firm, they're buying equity. These are the routes to wealth. It doesn't come through the hours. - Naval Ravikant

Tim Hwang: Trade Journal Cooperative, Robot Lawyers, Bubble in Digital Ads, Zuck Being Quantitatively Weird, and Misinformation as Warfare

Tim Hwang is the most interesting man on the internet. He runs a project called the Trade Journal Cooperative, which I've subscribed to for years. We talk about how the Trade Journal Cooperative got started it, how Tim *secretly* went to law school, and several other projects Tim is working on including an academic journal dedicated to bizarre images of Mark Zuckerberg. Thought that was all? That's not all. Also using bots to wage information wars on social media, and Tim's book which predicts an online advertising bubble. My favorite thing about Tim is his ability to sit on the fence between very serious and very whimsical. To start our conversation, Tim talks off the cuff about one of his heroes, Charles Fort, who compiled books of anomalous phenomena and is the source of the term “Fortean.” This explains a lot about Tim.  We then explore Tim's role as a trade journal sommelier and the Trade Journal Cooperative which provides a quarterly exploration of various industries. We talk a bit about the vastness of the trucking industry and also about the elevator, i.e., vertical transportation, industry. Tim also tells us the awkward story of how he somewhat unintentionally ended up going to law school secretly, and we explore some of the projects he started after graduating, including Rosen, Wolfe and Hwang, a boutique law practice that specializes in serving the unique needs of independent creators and small to midsize technology businesses, and Robot, Robot & Hwang, which was created off the notion of creating a fully automated law firm. Among other projects, Tim also started the academic journal The California Review of Images and Mark Zuckerberg, which explores why Zuckerberg seems to be exceptionally good at ending up in strange images and what that says about the media and culture.  I ask Tim to talk about his 2019 paper titled “Maneuver and Manipulation: On the Military Strategy of Online Information Warfare,” which is about how bots shape discussions online and the possible strategies of combating public manipulation. We also talk about a couple of branches off the information warfare piece, the National Conspiracy Writing Month (NaCoWriMo), in which participants complete a “daunting, but straightforward challenge to develop a deep, viable and complete conspiracy theory during the 30 days of November,” and COGSEC, which is a conference on the real-world practice of countering online influence operations. We wrap up our discussion talking about Tim's recently published book The Subprime Attention Crisis that explores the bubble of online advertising and its potential implications on web2 giants.   Links:    Charles Fort Books   The Trade Journal Cooperative   Iron Clad Contract Management    Maneuver and Manipulation: On the Military Strategy of Online Information Warfare   Sub-prime attention crisis by Tim Hwang   The Dawn of Everything by David Graeber   TimHwang.org   Tim on Twitter Topics:   (1:51) - Who are your heroes?   (3:04) - The Trade Journal Cooperative: Trucking, Magicians & the Pasta Economy   (9:36) - Has this led you into any investments or is it pure voyeurism?   (11:28) - Engineering Randomness & Curating the Journal   (16:17) - The man behind the Co-Op: Secretly going to Berkeley Law School   (19:06) - Being a lawyer for the “Extremely Online” market and trying to build a fully-automated firm   (21:46) - The Legal Automation space   (26:05) - Tim's Scholarly Papers about Absurd Cultural Phenomena   (34:14) - Thoughts on AI over the next decade   (37:05) - Information warfare & the responsibility of Social Platforms   (44:30) - National Conspiracy writing month & COGSEC (Countering Online Influence Operations)   (48:50) - The premise for Tim's book: Subprime Attention Crisis   (54:07) - Web3   (55:56) - Book recommendations Additional Episodes If You Enjoyed: Sean O'Connor: How Blockchain is Changing Society with Costless Transactions If you want to support the podcast, here are a few ways you can:  >> Buy a copy of the Navalmanak: www.navalmanack.com/  >> Share the podcast with your friends and on social media  >> Give the podcast a positive review to help us reach new listeners  >> Make a weekly, monthly, or one-time donation: https://app.omella.com/o/9Bufa  >> Follow me on Twitter: @ericjorgenson >> Learn more and sign up for the “Building a Mountain of Levers” course and community: https://www.ejorgenson.com/leverage  I appreciate your support!     Important quotes from Naval on building wealth and the difference between wealth and money:   How to get rich without getting lucky. - Naval Ravikant   Making money is not a thing you do—it's a skill you learn. - Naval Ravikant   I came up with the principles in my tweetstorm (below) for myself when I was really young, around thirteen or fourteen.

So today's guest I specifically sought out after reading his book “The Almanack of Naval Ravikant.” I was floored by essentially every sentence and thought the book was so incredible that I had to talk to the person who wrote it. That person is Eric Jorgenson. After working at a startup for a decade and technically being unemployed, he decided to delve into a myriad of projects including podcasts, blogs, and a self-paced course on leverage. His recent, and most successful book, is a guide to wealth and happiness curated and distilled entirely from Naval's spoken and written words. If you haven't heard of Naval, he's semi famous within certain silicon valley circles. He's founder of AngelList, an angel investor, and a modern day philosopher. The wisdom inside this book is near unparalleled, and if you haven't read it already, I highly recommend you do. You can buy Eric's book, The Almanack of Naval Ravikant, right now on Amazon.

This week's podcast is my second SoloCast, and during the episode, I share my thoughts and some predictions on the potential impacts and implementations of web3. The blockchain can be basically defined as a cryptographic breakthrough that allows for openness but with very careful editing permissions. While web1 resulted in costless publication and web2 in costless communication, web3 allows for costless transactions. This will likely increase the number of transactions we make. Web3 can also create cheap digital scarcity which may help authenticate originality in the digital world. Why does this all matter? My answer to this question regards the implications of web3 on the cost of trust and decentralization. Currently, the cost of trust in the market is relatively high, and with increasing transactions and original creations occurring via the blockchain, we will have to pay less for trust. Also, there will be less need for centralized parties such as brands or centralized banks, though it's too early to say which authorities will all be affected. Next, I make some predictions about what will happen as the blockchain gets deployed. The first to be impacted is the management of digital items, with finance and gaming among the earlier industries. Also, we will likely see digital components getting separated from analog components so that they can be managed on the blockchain. Another trend that may happen is that the blockchain may be implemented to manage atoms in the real world. To wrap up the SoloCast, I explore the implications of web3. It will probably impact managerial culture, and DAOs (distributed autonomous organizations) will likely take over some market share from companies. I also believe the biggest networks will be bigger than the biggest companies, in part because there is no cap on involvement in web3 networks and ecosystems. My goal in sharing my thoughts is not just to tell you what I think will happen but to provide some notions and rough directions so that you can hopefully overlay some of these lessons into your own experience and expertise. Web3 is still not easy to navigate, and it is still early in its implementation, but it provides incredible opportunity, and it is fun to get involved.   Links:    Eric's Blog   Eric's blog post on digital scarcity   Eric's Blog post on The Cost of Trust   Technological revolutions and Financial Capital by Carlota Perez   SquidDAO   Topics:   (0:08) - Introducing the Web3 discussion   (4:13) - What is the Blockchain?   (6:06) - Lowering transaction costs across Web1, Web2 & Web3   (9:46) - Creating cheap, digital scarcity   (12:12) - Why does the blockchain matter?

Welcome to the second episode of Track Zach, a series of quarterly podcast episodes in which we will be following Zach's journey as he starts and scales his private security marketplace, Conterra. We will check in on how the previous goals Zach set are going, hear about what he's learned and how he's pivoted, and see what he is looking to accomplish in the next quarter in the huge, fragmented, and heavily middle-manned $50 billion industry of private security.    This quarter, Zach's target was at least ten customers, 300 professionals to sign up on the supply side, and a new website launched by October 1st. His original thesis was to collect the supply side of the marketplace first. The website ended taking up longer than expected, which made him think he's building the wrong thing. Zach stopped pushing for signups and though he didn't get 300, there was a ton of word of mouth and recommendations going around. Zach was “collecting no's” the second-best thing to yesses, and from the no's, he was able to listen to what customers want, learn from that, and alter how they go to market.    He highlights that one of the main issues in the security industry is a lack of trust amongst providers/security professionals and a fear of being taken advantage of. With this, he found collecting demand to be proving to be more difficult, while the supply side is coming easier, prompting him to alter his original thesis and focus more on the demand side.    With all these observations, Zach says he gained clarity, and now things are starting to come together. He intends to focus the business on being the connective tissue and reputation for the major players in the space, and by doing so, they can cut out the major middlemen and reallocate that cash to those in the industry that should really have it. He is also shifting expectations and being clearer on focusing in on the things that will impact the business in a greater and faster way rather than the things that won't have as much impact, and he is getting better at vetting and hiring.    Zach explained his new technical roadmap as a process that starts with building a wheel, then a skateboard, then a scooter, then a bicycle, then a motorcycle, then a car. He explains that at this point, they have built skateboards.   During the next quarter, Zach expects to be neck-deep in fundraising and finding the right partners, and he is aiming to be confident in knowing the right amount of capital he'll need. He predicts the team will look a little different as he continues to recruit for an operations person. For the next 90 to 180 days, he will be mainly focused on operations, and he hopes to learn exactly what a world-class security recruiting company looks like.  Links:    Conterra   Workrise   Zach on Twitter   Jeremiah Rogers Coaching   Attivo outsourced accounting   Ben & Jerry's vs. Amazon: Strategy Letter Topics:   (1:58) - What is the one sentence overview of your experience over the past 3 months?   (3:02) - How are your goals coming along?   (21:00) - “You can't sell what you don't have.”   (22:22) - Where's the seam between a staffing agency and a marketplace?   (24:40) - What's the value proposition for clients to convince them to switch to Contara?   (27:00) - Has anything changed in the long-arch of the market size or market need with Contara?   (30:24) - Reviewing Zach's tweets: Over-scheduling yourself   (33:52) - What are some focuses that have panned out incredibly well?   (38:12) - Zach's team   (41:06) - Reviewing Zach's Tweets: Hiring an outsourced accounting firm   (45:38) - Raising capital   (47:42) - How far up is the plateau for conterra?   (51:57) - How's your personal stress level and work habits changed over the past 6 months?   (55:03) - Building out an office   (57:02) - Where do you want to be in 3 months?   (1:07:30) - Is there anything listeners can do to be helpful over the next 90 days?   (1:11:24) - Diversifying a marketplace based on niche use cases   (1:15:05) - Is there anything you've changed your mind on in the last 12 weeks?   (1:18:18) - Wrap up & final thoughts   Additional Episodes If You Enjoyed: Kevin Espiritu: Bootstrapping Epic Gardening to 8 figures by mixing Media + D2C Biz models.

During his time as a Navy Submariner, Kem Barfield learned many valuable lessons about leadership and problem solving. Now, in his role as Dean of Academic and Student Affairs at Three Rivers Community College, he regularly calls upon the steady sense of resolve gained during his Naval experience in order to overcome the inherent challenges of educating and supporting students at a community college. In this Digication Scholars Conversation, Kem walks host Jeff Yan through several such challenges, including leading ePortfolio and assessment efforts on campus, and responding to COVID19 in a decisively vigilant yet flexible manner. He then discusses his contribution to the book Transforming Digital Learning and Assessment, which covers using ePortfolio to undertake assessment for prior learning, a practice which allows adult students from diverse backgrounds to receive college credit for their experiences outside of academia. Though not a major source of revenue for the college, he explains, it is an important act of support for these students. According to Kem, this is a fundamental purpose of a community college. “The average student needs a lot more guidance. They need support. I think then when you're talking about what community colleges do, we're the people that are the practitioners of education -- that actually do provide all that extra guidance.”

In the last episode, we discussed alternative assets, and in this episode, we take a deep dive into the career of Chris Powers, the master of one specific alternative asset: real estate. Chris began his real estate career when he was just 17 years old and has spent the last 17 years building Fort Capital, a real estate firm in Fort Worth, Texas. Chris was a hungry 17-year-old, just showed up at college, bought his first house with no money down in 2004. By the time he left college, he had 12 houses. Fast forward to 2021, just this year, along with investors, they purchased $500 million of industrial real estate in Texas. Throughout the episode, we discuss Chris's journey in real estate, investing, recruiting, and podcasting. We started the conversation by asking Chris who his heroes are. He shared the story of his father who went back to college to pursue medicine even after being a lawyer for 13 years. His dad taught him the valuable lessons that you only live one life and that money can only make you so happy. Chris bought his first house at 17 when he was starting college and got into real estate as a means to make money during his studies. He was driven by constantly waking up and feeling behind and wanting to do something. Before graduating, he bought more student housing, started a property management business, and started a leasing business. He graduated in 2008, during the economic collapse, and had no choice but to continue in real estate. From 2010 to 2015, Chris was doing a bit of everything related to real estate – he was building custom homes and spec homes, buying land, VC investing, and had a small team that he managed. Despite having some success, he realized he wasn't compounding his business the way he wanted. Reading Good to Great by Jim Collins motivated him to narrow the focus of his business. Chris talks about his need to be able to recruit and the importance of having a mission. We also discuss how flywheels can propel us forward, and for Chris, his flywheel is based on his podcast, Twitter, real estate business, and investors that create a virtuous cycle of growth. Recently, Chris has transitioned out of being the CEO of Fort Capital, and he is learning how to be an owner. He is also focusing on his VC Funds and building Powers Capital, which he says will function like a family office but also will function like private equity. We wrap up the conversation discussing when enough is enough and measuring impact; Chris says he's no longer in it for the money but rather to see what it is possible to accomplish during the one life he has.   Links:    Chris on Twitter: https://twitter.com/fortworthchris   The Fort Podcast: https://open.spotify.com/show/4dLKPVTiXWmrFwd43iN2LZ    Chris Powers & Pete Chambers Podcast: https://open.spotify.com/episode/2X8vKyUIQaIxV5Mr9J5KMv Good to Great by Jim Collins:  https://amzn.to/3yJV9Jc   Owned and Operated Podcast w/ Chris Powers: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/21-chris-powers-building-%24600mm-commercial-real-estate/id1560999545?i=1000527344852   Fort Ventures: https://www.fort-ventures.com/   On Deck: https://beondeck.com/   Token Economy - How the Web3 Reinvents the Internet by Shermin Voshmgir:  https://amzn.to/3mpmHi7 Topics:   (3:52) - Who are your heroes?   (7:56) - Chris' upbringing & his father's impact on him   (20:47) - Chris starting his career in RE at age 17   (26:17) - Reflecting on the '08 financial crisis   (35:02) - What was your next big inflection point after graduating college in 2008?   (41:02) - You can't scale when you're not clear on your path   (47:52) - The results of learning to focus   (59:22) - What's role does Fort play in your investor's portfolios?   (1:05:41) - How does an investor recoup their money?   (1:09:26) - Compounding business with online content and media   (1:13:20) - The divergence of focusing the mission of Fort Capital and the mission of Chris Powers   (1:19:31) - What is your day-to-day like now?   (1:25:00) - Chris' VC investing exposure   (1:31:11) - What's the end goal for you?   (1:42:27) - What is the most foundational principle you can offer all entrepreneurs?

In this week's episode, I talk with Phil Huber, the Chief Investment Officer at Savant Wealth Management and author of the new book The Allocator's Edge. This episode does not include financial advice.* Rather, we talk about the advice Phil gives other people about their finances and the book he wrote about financial advice. We begin the episode with a discussion about financial advising and what goes into becoming a CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) and a CFP (Certified Financial Planner). We also talk about how it's important to find the right financial advisor as a person's financial life becomes more complex. I ask Phil if any of his clients ever ask if he can YOLO them so hard with investing, and he discusses advisors' business of growing and preserving wealth responsibly. Phil's new book focuses on alternative investments, and he gave us a glimpse of what those investments are. He demonstrates how diversifying clients' portfolios help manage risk. Phil explains catastrophe reinsurance, and we discuss the recent proliferation of alternative investing apps and platforms and how barriers are being broken down to previously inaccessible asset classes for average investors.   Any conversation involving alternative investments would in one way or another, end up with crypto. Phil talks about how advisors are trying to navigate crypto and the current difficulties of incorporating it into clients' investment portfolios as well as possibilities for its inclusion in the future. We end the episode talking about the process of writing a book and how it differs from blogging. Phil wrote The Allocator's Edge for himself ten years ago. By reading his book, Phil believes that investors can become more comfortable discussing and using alternative assets.   Links:    The Allocator's Edge by Phil Huber - https://amzn.to/3m1tu1d   Savant Wealth Management - https://savantwealth.com/    Phil Huber's Twitter: https://twitter.com/bpsandpieces  Topics:   (2:12) - What do you learn as a CFA?   (4:30) - Is there value in normal people getting a CFP or CFA just to make them more stable in their financial knowledge?   (5:35) - At what point does having a financial planner become a necessity?   (7:18) - How are you sure that you're bringing on a competent financial advisor?   (9:18) - How much range is there in the recommendations you give a client or what you specialize in with your practice?   (17:36) - “Diversification preserves wealth, but focus creates it.” Do you see this statement as true with the clients you work with?   (21:43) - How do you hammer home the concept of increasing a client's savings rate?   (25:07) - How do you prepare to be level-headed through times when facing the fears of clients?   (29:00) - The Allocator's Edge    (39:30) - A discussion on Inflation   (42:05) - Catastrophe reinsurance   (46:11) - Accessibility to the average investor   (50:25) - Cryptocurrency   (1:00:42) - Is there a missing product that needs to be built for more mainstream crypto adoption?   (1:06:37) - How does blogging compare to writing a book?   (1:09:11) - How long have you been working on this book?   (1:15:15) - What are the prerequisites to reading this book?   (1:17:57) - What is the ‘Yolo' portfolio?   (1:19:36) - Wrap Up Additional Episodes If You Enjoyed: Mitchell Baldridge: Defeating Taxes, Crypto & Financial Planning   Jason Hitchcock: Your Guide to Web3 (DeFi, NFTs, and The Metaverse)   David Perell: Intellectual Openness & Mental Models for Success   If you want to support the podcast, here are a few ways you can:  >> Buy a copy of the Navalmanak: www.navalmanack.com/  >> Share the podcast with your friends and on social media  >> Give the podcast a positive review to help us reach new listeners  >> Make a weekly, monthly, or one-time donation: https://app.omella.com/o/9Bufa  >> Follow me on Twitter: @ericjorgenson >> Learn more and sign up for the “Building a Mountain of Levers” course and community: https://www.ejorgenson.com/leverage  I appreciate your support!     Important quotes from Naval on building wealth and the difference between wealth and money:   How to get rich without getting lucky. - Naval Ravikant   Making money is not a thing you do—it's a skill you learn. - Naval Ravikant   I came up with the principles in my tweetstorm (below) for myself when I was really young, around thirteen or fourteen.

But things change fast now. Now, you have to come up to speed on a new profession within nine months, and it's obsolete four years later. But within those three productive years, you can get very wealthy. - Naval Ravikant     Important quotes from the podcast by Naval on Leverage:   “Give me a lever long enough and a place to stand, and I will move the earth.”  —Archimedes    To get rich, you need leverage. Leverage comes in labor, comes in capital, or it can come through code or media. But most of these, like labor and capital, people have to give to you. For labor, somebody has to follow you. For capital, somebody has to give you money, assets to manage, or machines. - Naval Ravikant   Fortunes require leverage. Business leverage comes from capital, people, and products with no marginal cost of replication (code and media). - Naval Ravikant   Capital and labor are permissioned leverage. Everyone is chasing capital, but someone has to give it to you. Everyone is trying to lead, but someone has to follow you. - Naval Ravikant   Code and media are permissionless leverage.

Following your genuine intellectual curiosity is a better foundation for a career than following whatever is making money right now.” - Naval Ravikant   Important Quotes from the podcast on Business and Entrepreneurship   There is no skill called “business.” Avoid business magazines and business classes. - Naval Ravikant   You have to work up to the point where you can own equity in a business. You could own equity as a small shareholder where you bought stock. You could also own it as an owner where you started the company. Ownership is really important.     Everybody who really makes money at some point owns a piece of a product, a business, or some IP. That can be through stock options if you work at a tech company. That's a fine way to start.    But usually, the real wealth is created by starting your own companies or even by investing. In an investment firm, they're buying equity. These are the routes to wealth. It doesn't come through the hours. - Naval Ravikant

Forward guns of a battleship bide their time Jerry Hendrix #Unbound: the complete, forty-minute interview, March 23, 2021 To Provide and Maintain a Navy: Why Naval Primacy Is America's First, Best Strategy, by Henry J Hendrix.   Hardcover – December 19, 2020  https://www.amazon.com/Provide-Maintain-Navy-Americas-Strategy/dp/0960039198 The national conversation regarding the United States Navy has, for far too long, been focused on the popular question of how many ships does the service need? To Provide and Maintain a Navy, a succinct but encompassing treatise on sea power by Dr. Henry J "Jerry" Hendrix, goes beyond the numbers to reveal the crucial importance of Mare Liberum (Free Sea) to the development of the Western thought and the rules-based order that currently govern the global commons that is the high seas. Proceeding from this philosophical basis, Hendrix explores how a "free sea" gave way to free trade and the central role sea-borne commercial trade has played in the overall rise in global living standards. This is followed by analysis of how the relative naval balance of power has played out in naval battles and wars over the centuries and how the dominance of the United States Navy following World War II has resulted in seven decades of unprecedented peace on the world's oceans. He further considers how, in the years that followed the demise of the Soviet Union, both China and Russia began laying the groundwork to challenge the United States's maritime leadership and upend five centuries of naval precedents in order to establish a new approach to sovereignty over the world's seas. It is only at this point that Dr. Hendrix approaches the question of the number of ships required for the United States Navy, the industrial base required to build them, and the importance of once again aligning the nation's strategic outlook to that of a "sea power" in order effectively and efficiently to address the rising threat. To Provide and Maintain a Navy is brief enough to be read in a weekend but deep enough to inform the reader as to the numerous complexities surrounding what promises to be the most important strategic conversation facing the United States as it enters a new age of great power competition with not one, but two, nations who seek nothing less than to close and control the world's seas.

This rare and unique book is unlike anything you have read or listened to.  Perhaps misnamed because the book is not really about pyramids.  This is a first person travelogue as U.S. Andersen explores different energy vortexes around the United States while taking psychedelics. He travels to Mount Shasta, and then proceeds to live on a volacano in Maui, fasting for forty days.  In the process he discusses a variety of topics and has a variety of paranormal experiences battling his adversary.  This is one of my favorite books that I have read on the channel. This is unlke anything U.S. Andersen has ever wrote. We have covered Andersen's work in several episodes but nothing he wrote comes close to this. It is quite bizarre. A powerful historical document. Andersen is Carlos Castaneda mixed with Jack Kerouac. This book is quite rare and hard to find and I had to share it with you. You will find something knew every time you read or listen to it. Uell Stanley Andersen was a successful self-help author in the 1950s and 1960s known for writing the classic Three Magic Words. Once a professional football player, he had a number of careers including running an advertising agency, wild-catting for oil, logging at the Columbia Sawmill, and acting as a gunnery officer on a destroyer escort. Born in the USA of Norwegian parentage, U. S. Andersen developed his inspiring, dynamic philosophy during a very active life. He learned about the psychology of winning when he was a football great. In World War II he served as a Naval officer and in the heat of battle learned that evil is the great illusion and that sin is error. It was in Mary Baker Eddy's book "Science and Health" that he first glimpsed these great truths, and he later quoted from her book in some of his own metaphysical writings.   Alternate Universe Reality Activation  get full access to new meditations, new lectures, recordings from the reality con and the 90 day AURA meditation schedulehttps://realityrevolutionlive.com/aura45338118 BUY A COPY OF MY BOOKhttps://www.amazon.com/Reality-Revolution-Mind-Blowing-Movement-Hack/dp/154450618X/ Listen my book on audible https://www.audible.com/pd/The-Reality-Revolution-Audiobook/B087LV1R5V Balance - amaranth covedark turns to light  - hampus NaeseliusRise to be your hero - Hampus Naeselisufuture Unknow - Dream CaveRadio nights - curved mirrorappeased soundcape 11 augus wilelmssonbeyond gravity - spirit of our dreams Music By Mettaverseeffortless awarenessinfinite lightdeep relaxation 777hxtranquil hang drum music768hz throat chakra528hz frequency of lovesolstice639hz heart chakra111hz the heart of true beingLight quotientblade runnergolden lotusrebirth Web Shop: http://www.mettaverse.comFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/mettaversemusicInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/mettaverseoneInsight Timer: https://insighttimer.com/pub945208Follow them on Instagram: http://bit.ly/2JW8BU2Join them on Facebook: http://bit.ly/2G1j7G6Subscribe to their channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyvjffON2NoUvX5q_TgvVkw All My US Andersen Episodes - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKv1KCSKwOo_XHLvIXgYWWKbweUfzocyZ All My Neville Goddard Videos In One Playlist - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKv1KCSKwOo8kBZsJpp3xvkRwhbXuhg0M All my videos about  Joseph Murphy - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKv1KCSKwOo_OtBhXg2s85UuZBT-OihF_ For all episodes of the Reality Revolution https://www.therealityrevolution.com Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/The-Reality-Revolution-Podcast-Hosted-By-Brian-Scott-102555575116999 Join our facebook group The Reality Revolution https://www.facebook.com/groups/523814491927119  Subscribe to my Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOgXHr5S3oF0qetPfqxJfSw Contact us at media@advancedsuccessinsitute.com #lawofattraction #usandersen #drjosephmurphy #totalhumanoptimization intro 00:001 The Magic Mountain 02:152 Act Of Sorcery 17:403 The Jade Frog 33:394 The Venus Incident 47:265 The Stone Cros 1:03:516 Sorcerer's Apprentice 1:17:407 House of The Sun 1:32:228 Satan's Grasp 1:48:119 The Buddha Moon 2:04:5410 The Christ Moon 2:20:2711 Ten Against The Gods 2:36:1612 The Goat Of Mendes 2:52:2513 Forty Day Fast 3:09:0214 The Stalking Beast 3:25:0215 The Valley Of The Light 3:42:0216 The World The Flesh And The Devil 3:59:2617 The Purple Door Behind The Anything Box 4:16:4218 Approach Of The Comet 4:33:3219 The Secret Passage 4:51:4520 The Magic Mushroom 5:09:0621 The Rainbow Bridge 5:25:0722 The Red Robe 5:40:2923 House Of The Moon 5:56:5924 Flesh Of The Gods 6:12:5825 The Last Supper 6:27:4726 Adrift In The Astral 6:44:4727 House Of Red Lights 6:59:1128 House Of Blue Lights 7:15:0829 The Devil's Eyes 7:32:2730 Sacred Magic 7:48:5631 House Of A Thousand Lies 8:05:3932 The Lucifer Manifesto 8:21:5733 The Purple Robe 8:38:52

"Yesterday, December 7, 1941— a date which will live in infamy— the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.” That iconic quote by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt announced the United States' entry into World War II after the surprise military strike on the U.S. Naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service. At the time, the United States was a neutral country, but Japan intended the attack as a preventive action to prevent the United States Pacific Fleet from interfering with its planned military actions in Southeast Asia. Peter L. Belmonte is a retired U.S. Air Force officer, author, and historian. A veteran of Operation Desert Storm, he has published articles, book chapters, reviews, and papers about immigration and military history, including extensive studies on Italian Americans in World War II. In this week's episode, we sit down with Peter to learn about the Italian American experience of World War II, a countless number of whom enlisted immediately after the Pearl Harbor attacks. We talk about these brave men and women and what their experiences were like from an ethnic perspective. We also discuss what it was like for Italian Americans to be fighting against Italy, and how World War II came to shape the Italian American ethnicity, helping these soldiers and civilians feel both Italian and American at the same time. While our country pauses to commemorate the 80th anniversary of these attacks, we remember our paesani who took up the call to serve and protect this great nation.

Bram Kanstein has become a professional at fucking around on the internet. He has built dozens of products, three of which he successfully sold, and he previously spent time working for a VC and Product Hunt.   We dive right into talking about Startup Stash, which is listed as the number one product on Product Hunt. Startup Stash is described as a curated directory of resources and tools for startups. Two years after launching and going viral, he sold the micro product for Ethereum. He also discusses the first company he sold, roadtoscale.com, and says that both products' success came from delivering value to the right audience.   Bram talks about how he discovered and fell in love with Product Hunt, which became the tool for his hobby of curating and discovering new startups. He loved Product Hunt so much that he joined the company a short few weeks after launching Startup Stash.   Bram got involved crypto when he was still a student and learned through experience. He recounts a funny crypto story of creating an account in the game, Second Life just to buy some BTC. After day trading for a period around 2013, he sold his Bitcoin and forgot about crypto for a while. In 2017, he discovered Ethereum and got back into crypto. Recently, Bram launched an NFT collection based on a color alphabet.   Currently, Bram is consulting a large company on innovation practices and validating new ideas. He is also teaching an online course, No Code MVP, and is working on his new idea, seedrounds.eu, which is aimed at improving deal flow for investors.

In late 2011, Admiral Jonathan Greenert became the Chief of Naval operations. Before that, he had commanded the US Navy's 7th fleet, a fleet that just rings with Naval History related to world war II. But even before that, the Admiral had once upon a time been a LtCDR and was the executive Officer aboard a ballistic missile submarine. And, aboard that submarine, one of the sailors with whom he had a long history of service was a Ballitic Missile Fire Controlman, 2nd Class, name... well... Dave Bowman. After the Admiral became CNO, I approached his office about being on the show for December 7th (and a story for another day was that adventure!) and he was glad to do it. We had a great time recording the interview and an even better conversation after. What I always knew about (as he was to me) LtCDR Greenert was that he cared a great deal about the sailors under him. Most XO's are the "hard ass" and keep things in line. LtCDR Greenert was ALWAYS professional and personable. When I had an issue in December of 1986, he went to bat for me. Though we lost, I learned a valuable lesson from him. "Bowman," he said, " we lost. But that's no excuse for less than you best in everything." That conversation led to one of my most personal and favorite moments aboard USS Michigan. At any rate, I was thinking about all the December 7th shows I've done through the years, and this is still my favorite. So I thought that I would share it with you once again...

Consequences by David Grantham provides a unique and fascinating window into the nuts and bolts of OSI counterintelligence operations. You won't be disappointed.”– Fred Burton, author of Beirut Rules: The Murder of a CIA Station Chief and Hezbollah's War Against America    In 2020, ISIS followers are being encouraged to use COVID-19 to sicken Westerners. An ISIS supporter attacked a Naval base in Corpus Christi, Texas. Iran and the United States exchanged blows in Iraq. We are still living in the long shadow of the Iraq War. In 2006, David Grantham was fresh out of college and serving as a counterintelligence officer with the elite and secretive Air Force Office of Special Investigations. Iraq was veering toward civil war. The U.S. military desperately needed better on-the-ground intelligence to turn the tide. Grantham found himself in Kuwait and Afghanistan, then at Iraq's infamous American prison, Camp Bucca. Not only was Bucca the breeding ground for the Islamic State, it was in southern Iraq, where America's deadly fight with Iran was an open secret. Consequences is both a riveting, behind-the-scenes look at intelligence operations at the height of the Iraq war, and a charming and sobering story of one man's journey through the pleasures and consequences that come with wartime intelligence.

In this episode, Theresa takes us back to the emotions she felt in that moment, how her husband flew back to her, and the military treatment received post loss with fear, anxiety, and depression.  This episode is for you to listen to if you are a veteran and are currently enlisted in the military or have experienced a twin loss.

Chris says he isn't the best poker player in the world, but he may be the most profitable.  Pro poker player Chris Sparks is training for the highest-stakes tournament he has ever played in after a long sabbatical. He says he has already decided he is going to win, and now he is doing the necessary things to create that outcome. What is the dynamic amongst poker friends? Chris says “frenemies” – all bets are off when the cards are on the table. Chris only plays when he expects to make money, and elaborates on the role of recreational players, stating that if you can't recognize the fish at the poker table, you are the fish. In the poker world, the meta skill of finding good games, of getting invited, and staying invited are critical. A good example is how Chris got invited to a famous comedian's poker parties multiple times. Chris recounts these parties that feature full sets of dealers, cocktail waitresses, and masseuses--and it all ends when the comedian gets tired. We talk about Chris's consulting agency, Forcing Function, travel, and living with one of the world's best pianists. Currently, Chris is coming out of a sabbatical and is preparing to play his largest tournament to date, with the prize pool potentially reaching seven figures.  For Chris, everything is a bet. But with any bet, the decision should be weighed with the things surrounding it and you go in with eyes wide open.   Links Chris' Website - https://www.chrissparks.io/ Forcing Function - https://www.forcingfunction.com/ Chris Spark's essay on Poker: Play to Win: Meta-Skills in High Stakes Poker Rounders Movie - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9r-K5dmt0Rc  Molly's Game movie - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vu4UPet8Nyc  The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron - https://amzn.to/3ljtOIh  Forcing Function Podcast - https://www.forcingfunction.com/podcast Forcing Function Performance Library - https://www.forcingfunction.com/library  Experiment without limits workbook - https://www.forcingfunction.com/workbook  The Fifth Discipline Field Book by Peter Senge - https://amzn.to/3I5rrCU  The Systems Bible by John Gall - https://amzn.to/3D3S9bj    Topics (1:50) - What is life like as a professional poker player?

I've been carrying them in my head for thirty years, and I've been living them. Over time (sadly or fortunately), the thing I got really good at was looking at businesses and figuring out the point of maximum leverage to actually create wealth and capture some of that created wealth. - Naval Ravikant   Seek wealth, not money or status. - Naval Ravikant   Wealth is having assets that earn while you sleep. - Naval Ravikant   Money is how we transfer time and wealth. - Naval Ravikant   Ignore people playing status games. They gain status by attacking people playing wealth creation games.    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.  - Naval Ravikant   The most important skill for getting rich is becoming a perpetual learner. You have to know how to learn anything you want to learn. The old model of making money is going to school for four years, getting your degree, and working as a professional for thirty years. But things change fast now. Now, you have to come up to speed on a new profession within nine months, and it's obsolete four years later. But within those three productive years, you can get very wealthy. - Naval Ravikant     Important quotes from the podcast by Naval on Leverage:   “Give me a lever long enough and a place to stand, and I will move the earth.”  —Archimedes    To get rich, you need leverage. Leverage comes in labor, comes in capital, or it can come through code or media. But most of these, like labor and capital, people have to give to you. For labor, somebody has to follow you. For capital, somebody has to give you money, assets to manage, or machines. - Naval Ravikant   Fortunes require leverage. Business leverage comes from capital, people, and products with no marginal cost of replication (code and media). - Naval Ravikant   Capital and labor are permissioned leverage. Everyone is chasing capital, but someone has to give it to you. Everyone is trying to lead, but someone has to follow you. - Naval Ravikant   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. - Naval Ravikant   If you can't code, write books and blogs, record videos and podcasts. - Naval Ravikant   Leverage is a force multiplier for your judgment. - Naval Ravikant   Apply specific knowledge, with leverage, and eventually you will get what you deserve. - Naval Ravikant   “We live in an age of infinite leverage, and the economic rewards for genuine intellectual curiosity have never been higher. Following your genuine intellectual curiosity is a better foundation for a career than following whatever is making money right now.” - Naval Ravikant   Important Quotes from the podcast on Business and Entrepreneurship   There is no skill called “business.” Avoid business magazines and business classes. - Naval Ravikant   You have to work up to the point where you can own equity in a business. You could own equity as a small shareholder where you bought stock. You could also own it as an owner where you started the company. Ownership is really important.     Everybody who really makes money at some point owns a piece of a product, a business, or some IP. That can be through stock options if you work at a tech company. That's a fine way to start.    But usually, the real wealth is created by starting your own companies or even by investing. In an investment firm, they're buying equity. These are the routes to wealth. It doesn't come through the hours. - Naval Ravikant

Matt Mochary is an operator, investor and coach to top tech leaders at companies including Coinbase, Opendoor, Bolt and Clearbit. He is the best in the Valley at what he does, with a notable clientele spanning from Naval Ravikant to Sam Altman. After selling his startup in 1999 for millions, he surfed, made movies, worked with ex-cons then developed the Mochary Method to help tech CEOs excel.  Matt was my CEO coach during my time at Atrium. My friend Steve Huffman, CEO at Reddit, said he helped Reddit “save millions”. When I was confronted with difficult feedback, Matt helped me navigate my emotions. He also coached me out of my pit, and showed me what an effective leader does in their “Zone of Genius”.  In this conversation, we dive into the Mochary Method and his book “The Great CEO Within”. I ask him about tips that have transformed many into the world's best CEOs, and actionable advice for personal growth. I also share a personal story of facing the anxiety from my past and overcoming it with an old friend. Check out the Mochary Method at https://mocharymethod.org and "The Great CEO Within" on Amazon. If you liked  this episode, check out our YouTube channel and follow us on Twitter! A thank to our sponsors Universe and CashApp for making this podcast possible.   THE QUEST MEDIA | CONTENT MEETS SILICON VALLEY |

From a drawing (circa 1878) by Captain William Bainbridge Hoff, U.S. Navy, in the collection of the Navy department. @Batchelorshow Jerry Hendrix #Unbound: the complete, forty-minute interview, March 23, 2021 To Provide and Maintain a Navy: Why Naval Primacy Is America's First, Best Strategy, Hardcover – December 19, 2020 by Henry J Hendrix https://www.amazon.com/Provide-Maintain-Navy-Americas-Strategy/dp/0960039198 The national conversation regarding the United States Navy has, for far too long, been focused on the popular question of how many ships does the service need? To Provide and Maintain a Navy, a succinct but encompassing treatise on sea power by Dr. Henry J "Jerry" Hendrix, goes beyond the numbers to reveal the crucial importance of Mare Liberum (Free Sea) to the development of the Western thought and the rules-based order that currently govern the global commons that is the high seas. Proceeding from this philosophical basis, Hendrix explores how a "free sea" gave way to free trade and the central role sea-borne commercial trade has played in the overall rise in global living standards. This is followed by analysis of how the relative naval balance of power has played out in naval battles and wars over the centuries and how the dominance of the United States Navy following World War II has resulted in seven decades of unprecedented peace on the world's oceans. He further considers how, in the years that followed the demise of the Soviet Union, both China and Russia began laying the groundwork to challenge the United States's maritime leadership and upend five centuries of naval precedents in order to establish a new approach to sovereignty over the world's seas. It is only at this point that Dr. Hendrix approaches the question of the number of ships required for the United States Navy, the industrial base required to build them, and the importance of once again aligning the nation's strategic outlook to that of a "sea power" in order effectively and efficiently to address the rising threat. To Provide and Maintain a Navy is brief enough to be read in a weekend but deep enough to inform the reader as to the numerous complexities surrounding what promises to be the most important strategic conversation facing the United States as it enters a new age of great power competition with not one, but two, nations who seek nothing less than to close and control the world's seas.
