My First Burning Man Experience – 2010

Burning Man 2010 Fireworks

 

The world has come to an end.

Civilization as we know it is over. And all 50,000 survivors came out to the desert to celebrate with the biggest party the human species has ever seen. That’s what Burning Man feels like. The rules and social norms you’ve lived with all your life don’t apply in this city. Black Rock City. The most amazing city on the planet that exists for only one week each year and then disappears without trace. Leaving 200 square miles of endless dust blowing over dry earth in the extreme weather without any sign of life. Nothing lives on the playa, not even spiders or scorpions or ants. Until next year…

How Multi Level Marketing is a great way to piss off your friends and ALWAYS leave you poor

How Multi Level Marketing is a great way to piss off your friends and ALWAYS leave you poor

Who wants to have MILLIONS of dollars coming in EACH MONTH without having to do ANYTHING? Raise your hand! Who wants to retire at 32 and watch the money pile up while enjoying a 6 month vacation? Raise Your Hand! All you need to do is pay $499 and make just 20 sales, and find 3 other people to do the same and help them find 3 other people to do the same, and anyway who cares about the specifics, it’s not so hard and you can make more money than you can DREAM about! Now who’s feeling that? RAISE YOUR HAND! That’s right, can I get a hell yeah? Guys, we’re talking about MILLIONS of dollars. Louder. I said can I get a HELL YEAH!!

The nicest thing I can do for friends that try to recruit me into a Multi Level Marketing business is to destroy their motivation and tell them to get the fuck out.   Continue Reading >>   

Always Rep Your Friends Well

Always Rep Your Friends Well

I don’t understand people who put down their friends when talking about them.

Speaking well of your friends does so many great things.
It makes you look good when you have quality friends. It shows that you’re thoughtful. And It shows that you’re a good person to your friends.

And let’s not forget, it helps out your friends. You’re raising up the people around you. Your friends like it, appreciate it, and are motivated to do things to raise you up.

Isn’t it better to have a cooperative dynamic with the people close to you?

If you really can’t think of anything nice to say about a friend of yours, well, it’s time to do some thinking, about a lot of things.

Playful teasing is cool and fun of course, but it shouldn’t have anything to do with how you represent your friends to others.

What you say reflects on you. Especially what you say about your friends.

Let’s say the only info you had about someone was what they had to say about a friend. Which of these people would you rather associate with?

Person A: “My friend is one of those awesome amazing guys that makes the idea of having friends in your life actually worth it. If he wasn’t already a friend of mine, I would find a way to infiltrate and get to know him.”

Person B: “My friend is such a loser. Last night while he was sleeping, I put some shaving cream in his mouth and he accidentally swallowed it. Now he’s complaining. Haha, what an idiot!”
