Haters Hate, Creators Create

Haters, haters, haters: they will always keep on hating,
So, give exactly zero fucks to what they say, and keep creating.
Dream so big and weird, that everyone will think you’re “nuts,”
Then, laugh until it makes you cry, while counting up your bucks.

Enjoy what you have earned… After all, you do deserve it,
But don’t forget the little guy who’s thinking he’s not worth it.
For some reason, he didn’t walk the “recommended” path,
Plus, Life’s a ‘number’s game;’ he just got left out in the math.

A day, not long ago, that lonely lunatic was you!
Remember how it felt thinking there’s nothing you could do?
You’ve finally made it to the promised land, why ever leave?
The goal was never wealth, but getting hopeless to believe.

How Technology could Cause an Instant Global Awakening

Imagine technology that enabled 2 people’s brains to momentarily sync.

In in instant, both people would immediately not just know every thought and action each other has ever had. They would actually have experienced it (as far as they know).

Now, imagine that same technology scaled large enough to “sync” every single person on the planet, for 60 seconds.

Instant Global Awakening.

For geeks, think of:

  • Telepathy (aka Professor X).
  • Vulcan Mind Meld.

It’s the same thing, but instead of cool but impossible magic powers (Trust me that would be “Plan A,” but my extensive research of trying to grab the remote control using “The Force,” isn’t looking very promising at the moment.

However, we can invent… and as impossible as this idea sounds, it could be done, with immense R&D, a bottomless pit of money, and a lifetime.

Most (or all) of the people starting the project would never live to see the result, but it would give your life purpose. We’d be building heaven, but never get to go…

What about our kids?

…and theirs?

Randomly thought of that… the same effect is happening with the gradual extinction of privacy, and our ability to instantly communicate.

It’d still be faster, but then you run into:

Is it wrong to force everyone to do something once, if it means putting an end to so much pain? Who gets to make that decision?

Think.
Have Ideas.
Be Wrong.

I Have a Billion Dollar Idea – Who’s Up to the Challenge?

billion_dollar_idea

The Vision

I know the problem, and I have the solution.

I see the opportunity.

I understand the challenges, but know how to overcome them.

The Product

The solution to a huge problem in both business and society.

Turning a big flaw into a much bigger opportunity.

A cure.

The Team

I can easily identify the players required. I don’t need recruiters.

I will foster, develop, and bring out the greatness in them.

I will lead and inspire them.

The Business

I can build it, but lack the resources.

We need a home base of operations.

I need the ability to offer the team a salary, benefits, and a way to cover their cost of living.

I need an investor. I need capital.

The Outcome

A lot of money to be made for everyone involved at the initial stage.

A brilliant business model that will be copied and imitated by many others.

Right Now

I need a partner(s).

An individual who compliments the way I am. A person who enhances my strengths and makes up for my weaknesses. A natural counterbalance.

Where I am the visionary idealist, you are the critical realist. We both share the same goal, but can utilize our opposite qualities to refine, perfect, and enhance the business model.

If multiple people want to jump on board during this final stage of development, that works too. A diversity of viewpoints always brings out the best outcome.

You Need to Know

During this final stage of development, it’s only us.

It’s collaboration and working towards a dream without any support, resources, or capital.

It’s working another job to pay your bills and working on this during the off-hours to build the dream.

Once the business model is complete, then we seek out and pitch it to investors.

Keep in Mind

This is not just getting together and blindly brainstorming business ideas. I already have the idea.

This is refining it, working out the kinks, and developing it into a model that can be pitched and will sell to investors.

This is an opportunity to jump in on the ground floor and build something that will grow to become bigger than yourself.

Everybody says they want to start a company, do things differently, and change the world…

Do you really mean it?
