Two books that have really given me power in life, “How To Win Friends And Influence People” by Dale Carnegie and “48 Laws Of Power” by Robert Greene. Friends share their powerful books, we are going to go into one section from each book for a few minutes with real-life examples of how those books influence success with people and money.
When you see a man snorting a line of coke from on a book cover you pay attention, when the book delivers a detailed roadmap on building quality engagement without the narcotic, you get why Ed Latimore says Engagement Is The New Cocaine!
It’s not all Machiavellian tactics because he does make sure you know that there are certain lines that can’t be crossed, but goes into how to get very, very close! Continue reading
Balance is a misunderstood tactic and strategy that my mentors taught me to define the way successful men always have. In turn, I pass it on to who I am guiding towards success. On its surface, it’s perceived as the need to be “well rounded” or even worse, a “Jack of All Trades and Master of None”. -> Master ONE!
I was covered in a slimy, warm, living caul that I greedily devoured, and happily excreted through my pen after being shat out by the beast of grammar and punctuation that I’ve sacrificed my time to!
Every Man Wants To Be Free, Until He Has To Do The Things Men Must Do To Free Themselves!

I have helped quite a few friends get started writing; I show them the easy part first. That’s how to set up WordPress or how to Podcast. It takes an hour to learn, maybe a few more minutes if I didn’t explain well.

For me its Blacksmithing, for you it may be painting, building car engines, carpentry, or pottery. Whatever it is, take on a task that leaves you with something you can sign your name to and be proud of. Even if it’s ugly! I’ve made a lot of ugly knives, but I treat them all with the same love and respect as I sharpen and shine them. I never sell them or make them for money. Instead, I give them to special friends who I want to have a priceless gift, or trade them to friends for other things they have made with their own hands. Whats made is always valued more than what’s bought!
