This Is The Second Industrial Revolution

I just want all the 20 and 30 year olds to know that every 40-year-old and up didn't get as lucky as you've got it now. This is the generation, this is the sweet spot, this is the land grab.
If you just want to talk about entrepreneurship, if you just want to talk about having enough bat to build something for yourself that you own and do something that you like this is better than 1987, this is better than 1974, this is better than 1963.

One thing that I ask you to do is not look back with regret that you wavered in the moment that was available to you. The only things you regret are the things you don't do.

Even if you think about the random dumb things like not asking that girl out when you were in high school, that stuff lingers. It's the stuff that you don't do that bothers you.

For the pure bred entrepreneurs out there that haven't decided to take that leap I implore you to do so right away because this window closes too. As more and more people come online more and more people fall off the sideline.

It was a lot easier to start a social media site in 2003, 4, 5, 6 and 2007 than it is now.

If you know yourself I'm trying to point you in the right direction of opportunity because there is so much white space still available to build in business, yet people are really attracted to the one or two billion dollar exits.

For every Instagram they're 80,000 Insta shits. Everyone is following the unicorns.

Point you in the right direction.
Point you in the right direction.
Do you know how phenomenal it sounds to your grandparents if you told them that you built this company that you own, that you run, that you like doing and you make $200,000 a year. Do you know what kind of Nirvana that actually is in the scheme of things.
Do you know how phenomenal it sounds.
Do you know how phenomenal it sounds.
We're not grounding this entrepreneurial start-up conversation in the right thing. We're grounding it in the headlines of the five or six things Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, Uber and we not talking about the tens of thousands of opportunities that are available if you take a step back and understand what's happening then try to build something around your pain point.
We are not grounding the conversation.

Your pain point might be your three kids piss you off all the time, that's a real pain point. I don't know, create an Uber for babysitters.
Your three kids piss you off.
Your three kids piss you off.

There are so many ways to build businesses. If you just sit back right now and think about how much money you make - double that amount and then think about being able to do something on your own terms. Now all of a sudden you've grounded yourself in a totally different conversation than this weird need to be the next Zucks or change the world or things of that nature.

I'm looking for real practicality because practical business building has never been easier.

So many ways to build businesses.
