Has anyone ever wondered why the most successful in any field make things look so easy… even during the toughest times? I believe it is because the most successful people tend to thrive on the insanely difficult. What is tough and problematic to most, is easy and opportune to a select few. What’s grim and hard to the select few, is absolute torture to most.
Who enjoys the torture? Aside from sadomasochist? Champions! Enjoyed with a passion, in fact.
They work harder. Work longer. Sacrifice the greatest. Focus intensely and intently. Are not easily distracted or swayed off course by naysayers – who normally offer commentary only from the comfort of their cushiony, anonymous seats. They are insanely passionate and treat every day as if, it is always “Day One.”
Jeff Bezos, who now employs nearly 600k people, tells a story of how he’d Continue reading →
Alec Baldwin recently gave in a speech where he calls for Trump to be ousted. Politics aside, one of the statements he made that struck me was, “There Are More of Us, Then There Are of Them.”
In this instance, he was taking aim at the number of billionaires pulling the puppet strings of the GOP – but still yet, each of those billionaires only have one vote. Thus, “There Are More of Us, Then There Are of Them.” He was referring to the number of Democrats vs. Billionaires. This is where it became interesting for me.
Once again, politics aside, in the end, no matter what your party is, there is always more of “you” (in this case meaning, regular people (the 99%)) then there is of them (Billionaires). Heck, there are more of you, then there are multi-millionaires. Shit… truth be told, Continue reading →
My name is Ajene Watson, and my friends and I are the developers of the PAI platform, also known as the Public Accelerator Incubator. The purpose of this vehicle is to promote equitable opportunities amongst investors of all classes – rich, poor, and in between. Everyone should have the ability to make money, at the same time, from the same exact investment opportunity. Is this a tall Order? Heck yes, it is.
This is why platforms we are exploring like Crowd Funding and Crypto Currencies, if used properly, are so important. However, these are just tools that are complicated to understand. Even if you learn how to proficiently use them, as with good ole’ cash, what good are they if viable opportunities to put them to use are limited?
I’ve told very few people this, but I was once involved in a police brutality situation. With all that’s gone on in the world today, my confrontation pales significantly in comparison. But there is a lesson that I learned from it. A lesson that is beginning to awaken a vigor in my being for not just my personal life, but also my business and what history I mean to leave this world with.
“People who are definite in both their plans and their purposes, never accept temporary defeat as being more than an urge to greater effort.” — The Devil (aka Your Majesty) in, Outwitting The Devil by Napoleon Hill. Your Majesty continues, “You can see for yourself, that this sort of policy is bound to win if it is followed with definiteness.”
How true is this ‘Definite Purpose’ when it comes to working with companies trading on the Pink Sheet and OTC Markets (usually identified as nano-cap and microcap companies)? We believe it to be quite accurate.
You see… we’ve had our share of failures, just as we’ve had our share of successes. However, our greatest lessons did not come from when we succeeded, but when we failed. Failure is the driving force behind our steadfastness in fighting what continuously seems to be an uphill battle; formulating a solution that will contribute to the development and sustainability of a legitimate marketplace, despite of itself.
The ultimate goal is not so much to solely make money, which in and of itself can lead to all sorts of dubious acts from even the most honest of men; particularly in such an unorthodox marketplace. Rather, the goal is to build opportunities contributing to the inherent belief that wealth can be attained by the average Joe (investor/shareholder) and entrepreneurs can in fact prosper and flourish from such a cruel and unusual bazaar.

How the Speed of Implementation Affects Business Success
Next time you stop into your neighborhood bookstore, you’ll likely find an entire section dedicated to helping one’s business succeed. Usually practical tips, which focus on the whole gamut of what makes up a modern-day company: the entrepreneur, customers, marketing, employees, and of course, the business model.
Choosing the right self-help advice is usually done on a personal basis. There is no “one size fits all” scheme that works for everyone; especially since different people are on different paths to varying levels of success. What applies to one… may not be as important to another.
Based on the general premise of success, making the right decisions for your business is normally a top priority. However, in the grand scheme of things, even making wrong decisions, is infinitely far more superior to making no decisions.
Trust when we tell you, there is indeed a problem plaguing many fresh startups and it is not the lack of advice on how to be successful. Look around you. That crap is everywhere.
No… it’s the lack of advice regarding the speed in which many of those very same “success tips,” actually need to be implemented.
Consistency is an important trait for an entrepreneur to have. It’s not mentioned much in mainstream media, because the ability to perform consistently is not only boring, but it’s hard to translate into books and film. However, it is something you need, and it’s something that is all encompassing as you grow.
The best way to develop consistency is by working certain things into your routine. Some of these involve your schedule. Others involve how you respond to varying situations and scenarios. Here are a few items you should strongly consider weaving into your life. Continue reading →
Ponder this for a moment as you consider just how fast the Internet transformed global communications.
Today, the “World Wide Web” is no longer a phrase of mystery and intrigue. Its existence is as vital as the air we breathe, the food we eat… the water we drink. It is scary to think of how the internet, in many ways, is just as ubiquitous as that omnipresent energy that surrounds us, binds us, giving us the inclination to continuously seek it… trust in it or question it.
Sounding a bit pious?
Well damn that! Because just when you thought we had one pervasive technology understood, here comes another. A technology that like the Internet, may become just as prevalent in our daily lives.
Day in and day out, CEO’s of early development stage private companies get sold the dream of grandiose opportunity within in the penny stock market. Unfortunately, the majority of the time however, they find themselves being victimized by an immoral and unsavory enemy. The worse part…, this foe, the challenger of their success, is actually none other than one of the primary groups, entrusted to bring them to the promise land.
