I am all for setting big goals, but goals should not be impossible. Furthermore, you can be a big success with small goals. Let me give you some examples…
You don’t have to have the success of Warren Buffett (Berkshire Hathaway) to be considered a success in investing.
You don’t have to have the success of Bill Gates (Microsoft) to be considered a successful software entrepreneur.
You don’t have the success of Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) to be considered successful as an app maker.
You don’t have to own as much land as Ted Turner (he also created CNN/TNT/TBS) to be considered a success in real estate.
You don’t have to sell as many books or have as many podcast downloads as Tim Ferris to be considered successful in media.
A lot of people will do anything, or more specifically, say anything to get a deal done. It doesn’t matter if it hurts the other party. As long as I get the sell or close the deal or win the negotiation… as long as I “win” that’s all that matters.

Don’t screw people over. You’ll eventually get screwed over, and then you will know how bad it feels.Mr. Hobo Millionaire
Have you ever been sold something you really didn’t need? Has a car salesman gotten you to do $2,000 in upgrades that you really had no business buying? I’ve had banks and other financial entities mess me over with fine print… sure it was my fault I didn’t read it closer, but I trusted them… and they betrayed that trust.
I blog about money, financial independence (FIRE), life, and entrepreneurship. I got rich slowly (over 20+ years) with a niche software business. I also failed at a number of other things (and mild success with a few others). I share what I did right along the way, and a lot of what I did wrong, with a goal to encourage you think differently about life and money.
