Hack 1.
Hacking You:
Why, Mindset, and
Fun!
Regular Day Job VS Day, Night, and Weekend Job
You need to love it, if you’re going to do it!
Emotional Risk
1. Quantity overcomes Rejection
• People: 5 positive - 1 negative = 0
• Startups: 1 YES per 100s of NOs
2. Failure -> Experiment and Learning
3. Growth Mindset -> There will be
obstacles but you can figure it out.
4. Focus: what and when
Entrepreneurship is hard! You better bring the Joy and Fun!!
Hypothesis: I can create value/serve people, have more fun, & meet my financial needs.
Financial Risk
1. A business exists to serve / create
value for others.
2. Money is an artifact doing 1 well
3. Know your runway
4. Scrappiness = Happiness
5. Progress obliterates Anxiety
We all have limited resources and
unlimited resourcefulness.Learn to shake it off!!
Bucket
List
Downside
• Lose 1 or 2 years of high
salary job
• Need to live cheap
• Have to get a job
Decisions! Decisions!
“Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness
has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.” - Goethe
Upside
• Help many people
• Work on that Bucket List
• Learn a ton (10x + MBA)
• Own my destiny; More joy
• Earn Financial Freedom
