I like the way you talk for some reason. Like you don’t try to be a comedian or funny but you are. You just talk like a real person and not someone trying so hard to be a YouTube Personality.

Meh, if your skin isn’t thick enough for “retard” it’s not like you were going to apply any of these tips anyway.

damn, thanks man. I always felt like an ass hole because I thought I was better than most other people, but now you have given me another point of view and I don’t feel too bad now. Reason being is I’m actually thinking of and doing things that are getting me ahead of my peers. While people my age are partying and having fun I’m at home learning programming or foreign languages. When they’re on Facebook and instagram I’m reading personal development books. When they’re out at expensive dinners, I’m staying at home eating cheap food. When they are figuring out what do spend their money on, I’m developing strategies to retire at 30. I’m 20 by the way, and FUCKING YES it’s possible to RETIRE at 30 with the right investment portfolio and discipline, you don’t have to work until you’re 65 people!!!! read mr money mustache and see for yourself

Hello! I’m glad I found your channel, you have an interesting perspective.. on life. Haha, I really love reading the kinds of books you talk about in the video too. I think I read my first book, Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, when I was 19. (You’ve probably read that one, but if not I really recommend it ^_^ )
I was wondering how you get all of your books? Do you buy them? Download pdfs online?
I personally prefer reading the physical book, but I’m always hesitant to spend tons of money on non-course-books since I’m still in college. Usually I borrow my friends’ books or sit in bookstores for a long time just reading.

I love your videos. It’s inspiring to hear from a guy who is actually doing something with his internet time. I’m now in my late 30s and just started to try creating opportunities with youtube.

There are millions of videos on the internet that tell you that you “can” do stuff to be successful, but ironically there are never videos to tell you “HOW” to actually do it. I am not asking for someone to do it all for me, but lighting the way for the first steps would be tremendously helpful to millions. thx KG

I’d have to say kind of disagree with #7. While it’s good to invest money, it’s also good to squirrel at least some of it away. Life happens. Sometimes a business idea fails, sometimes people get laid off, and sometimes an expensive emergency comes right the fuck out of nowhere. It’s good to have some sort of cushion or emergency fund for situations like that.
Other than that, though, great video!
