I actually think their goal is to lose money. You don’t just accidentally lose 13 billion :-P

Those networth figures can't be right.

There's something inherently misleading about this tweet. It makes it feel as if these companies are burning money for the sake of burning money... and they're going to disappear soon. It's much more nuanced than that.

Dark elf trilogy is one of my favorite sets of fantasy books. Who doesn't love Jarlaxle?

I actually think this is slightly different than the equinox situation. In the equinox situation, it's specifically a fundraiser. In this situation, it's an interview... on an interview based podcast... where the interview podcast challenges societal norms.

I don’t know if is hire-able, but he’s one of the few SEOs I’d actually consider working with. Most of the other “names” in the industry are puff.

My response is neither negative nor positive. On purpose. I didn’t want my bias to detract from the main message - “keep an open mind.”

This poor guy is named Jeffrey Epstein. He isn’t that Jeffery Epstein. He’s just another Jeffery Epstein. And he’s been getting slammed by hate on the internet.

You can probably thank for that one. He was all over exposing their pettiness.

So, has a podcast with Charles Koch and people respond “I’m unsubscribing.” Without listening. This is insane. I’ve followed Tim long enough that I’ll hold back judgment and listen. Burying our heads in the sand is never the right move.

The best, my boss said, "You're not going to give me any notice?" And I'm like, "Nah. Just pretend like I was never here. You don't even have to pay me."

Why did I become an entrepreneur? I took a job at a law office. They needed me to check data. I automated it in Excel. My boss said, "We don't do that here. Please do it by hand." I quit day on 2. How about you? Use hashtag

So, says, to combat clutter, ask yourself - “Does this spark joy? If the answer is no, dispose of it.” I love it, and go one step further. I apply it to people, too. Clutter creates stress. So do toxic people. Dispose of both.

Writers got left behind in 2019. The world became visual with apps like Instagram, but as a writer, I feel left out. I don't take pics when I travel. If I see something funny, I don't snap a pic. I write it down. Words matter. Now more than ever. It's why I use Twitter again
