The Solution To Poverty is NOT Universal Basic Income

NO! Giving money to someone who is uneducated is throwing money away. Universal Basic Income (UBI) is NOT the solution to poverty. Not even close. UBI is a Band-Aid on a stinking festering infected gaping oozing wound that is ignorance (lack of access to higher education) which is the cause of poverty. This is not to say we don't need UBI...it's to say we need MORE than UBI. We need education to go along with it. You most likely have seen this video floating around the internet: Sorry, but with all due respect, he's wrong. If you hand someone [...]

But I want more. I want to help people and to help [...]

Success is All in Your Head

Success is all in your head. Seriously. Success is all about how you think. It's about your mindset. To be successful you need to condition your mind to think successfully. You must focus on being successful. It's more than being success driven. You mind will empower you to be successful. It will drive you forward toward your goals.

They are able to succeed where others fail because they think differently. Steve Jobs understood this and [...]

I Will Be a Billionaire

My mentor, idol and the person I study and try to emulate is a multi-multi-billionaire, owns multiple billion dollar companies, is revolutionizing multiple industries, blows away the top competitors in those industries, is innovating at a rate faster than anyone has ever imagined possible, and is on track to be to first person to go to another planet. The ironic and slightly painful fact is that this person is only 2 years older than me. He has achieved so much more than I have in about the same amount of time on this planet. Meaning that, if I am honest [...]

Can We Really End World Poverty? I’m Crazy (Naive) Enough To Try

As I sit here in Starbucks drinking my coffee, writing this article I realize, that technically, by definition and law, I am homeless.

As I gaze around the place I see a real homeless person, an older man, with a long scraggly beard, drinking his coffee, drawing a “HOMELESS: NEED HELP” sign on an old piece of cardboard he must have picked up outside. I realize that the disparity between us is great, but then again, maybe it’s not. I’m homeless but maybe not [...]
