▼Mastering Financial Creativity in an Age of Leverage▼
What boggles the mind is how one comes to make $14,800 per second, $888,889 per minute.
And specifically—in boxer Floyd Mayweather Jnr.'s case—$2.5 million per round. In 12 rounds
of world-class championship Boxing. Oh...And that's $2.5 million every 3 minutes. But while
we're at it, how does a former English teacher, a laughing stock in some Internet forums I
publicized Alibaba IPO, —the biggest in U.S. history. Do you see a pattern here? An
& wildly successful business maestros bring to their grind? Serial entrepreneur
and Silicon Valley mogul Jason Calacanis, a man, like billionaire Mark Cuban,
notorious for his no-nonsense temperament offers a simple yet powerful
clue: “Be Amazing, Be Everywhere, Be Real.” Why? Because we're ALL
in advertising, whether we realize it or not, in an Age of Leverage.
Like Sean Parker, who follows every rising star on Twitter before
you even hear of them; Oprah whose authenticity crescendoed
Hewlett and leveraged that relationship to go farther, what
you are doing now, is leading to your greatest moment of
leverage. Even Mayweather Jr, having attracted $68.6
by making a bad judgment call the billionaire,
understandably, didn't want to be associated
with. “Marketing used to be what you say.
Now, marketing is what you do...make.
when you're sure no one is looking.”
Can it pass the leverage test? And
if so, your kamiwaza will bring
recognition proportionate to
the grind you exert on your
financial aspirations. Just
don't blow your chance
to leverage, as Mark
Cuban and others
sell, sell &
