"Lie down" is the best advice you've ever given. Unfortunately, it's hard to truly internalize until you make one or two mistakes IRL and burn a friendship or two.

Hey Bull, I know this isn't your life but I'd love your opinion. I'm 19, technically sophomore in college but my credits make me a junior.

I have a couple wifi businesses, good grades, social circle, dating life etc. and I'm on a good trajectory.

Here's the issue: I go to the University of Iowa (I save a ton of money doing this) and I live in Des Moines.

Iowa is all I have ever known, but it is way too small for the life I want and the life I know I can have.

I know that I have potential and I'm seriously considering forgoing an internship in Des Moines and moving to Tampa for the summer so I can be in a better environment with more ambitious people.

I feel like I've outgrown my hometown and need to make a big step to grow and take my biz/ppl skills/everything to the next level but I'm only 19... is it too early to make a play like this?

My parents think this is a stupid idea and that I should get more professional experience close to home before doing something this drastic.

Thanks

Lie down is good advice. I made the mistake of telling my parents when made a stack selling my company. Next thing I knew aunts and uncles commenting on it. There is zero, absolutely zero, to be gained by talking about it. Now our preference is to hang out with ppl who have made more than us. No jealousy there.

Lie down.

What’s your legacy if no kids? You’re clearly not at your number yet, what’s your why other than being elite?

Degen island island the legacy?

Thanks for all the basically free info. Have dramatically changed my life trajectory thanks to a cartoon bull.

It's not just when you make $10M. Years ago I told my parents I had paid off my first property. Mistake. Now everyone knows.

"they’ll make back handed comments to imply you are making or have less than them."

This is so on point. Just smile and wave boys, smile and wave.

Hey BtB! Thanks for the nice guide!

Do you have a guide on what to do when you have a big windfall or gain lots during this next bull run? What should we immediately start thinking about and plan to do?

Recommend agains Australia and NZ - living long term is nice but you won't be able to afford house prices in major cities unless NW >= $5m and so will be forced out into the slums with lower class.

Hanging around my parents during my kids’ activities I get written off very quickly by the other dads. I don’t have the “right” w-2, live in the flashy part of town, drive the right car or have any of the toys they have interest in (Vacation home, beach club, country club).
