Have you ever asked yourself why you exist in this world? What is the sole purpose of you being in existence and have you been doing things related to your purpose?
Yes, and I believe it is to help people.
Ryan Eagle was once in the band "Eagle Thunder" he would get on top of the table and play the electric guitar for hours on end. When it was time for the grand finale he would pull a string from his coat and silly string would hose the crowd. The End
What is your take on the people who are self employed? Most of the time they are considered as failures, do you agree with the statement or not?
I don't think there is that stigma anymore as much as there used to be. Many people are self employed and work from home, and many of them fail at what they do.
What's your next big purchase going to be? Do you still buy in cash like your RR or do you see the smarter option in financing at low interest?
I finance cars now. Right now I have nothing planned on the horizon, although I would like the new Rolls Royce Phantom VIII that came out. Slick car.
I work at a web dev agency and build sites on the side after work. I want to quit and do this full time, how much cash flow and savings do you suggested having/saving as a margin of safety?
That's relatively hard to answer as I don't know your expenses, but I think 6 months of savings should be safe?
I'll post some pics soon, I just moved so it's coming back together.
Is the Trump presidency everything you thought it would be?
So far so good, I'm not happy about the ObamaCare failure but good things take time. He needs both parties behind him to get more done, one of his major failings.
What are the things that you look for in a friend? Are you that kind of person with very many friends or you believe in having very few yet meaningful friends?

What industries are your angel investments in. Not asking for specifics just generally speaking. Do you invest in local based businesses?
I'm pretty broad with my investments. They used to be limited exclusively to Internet, but that's not the case anymore. Everything from local businesses to SaaS.
What's you morning mix to get you started for work? Caffeine, redbull, coffee, pills?
Espresso. Nothing fancy, it seems to work best for me.
Would you ever invest in cryptocurrencies or consider them as safe haven?
I've invested before but I don't like the fact that you cannot leverage margin to trade, it's an extremely important financial instrument that I use in other markets to succeed.
Back in the day it seemed affiliates really were making good money. As a network owner did they make as much as they appeared to make?

Yea, why not. It's going to be great.
Which apps/programs help you the most to run your business day to day?
I use Telegram, Asana, and JIRA daily. I'm mostly fucking off on Telegram shot calling to people that administer all of the other applications nowadays though.
Did you get a prenup before marriage?
I'm not married nor would I get married without one.
How many hours do you work these days? I remember when you said you used to work 20 hour days, 7 days a week - was that slightly over exaggerated or actually true?
Actually true (at the time). There were years of 20 hour work days that I lived. You don't get Rolls Royce's, Bentley's and other exotics by the age of 23 by relaxing. Nowadays I work between 25-40 hours a week - enjoying the balance of life a lot more.
What's your ultimate goal and do you think you will ever retire? Why work insane hours if you no longer have to?
I don't work as much as I used to - less than 40 hours a week. I'm enjoying life a lot more these days than I used to. The point of work and success isn't to work more, is it?
This year, what is that one project that you feel best worked out for you? How much did you get as returns from the entire project?
