Why you need to target the smallest viable audience
The purpose of his famous Purple Cow (the answer may surprise you)
Why winners quit all the time
That his ability to write best selling books is not a gift
That if he wanted to tell untruths he could 10x the sales of his workshops
The relationship between the Cuban Missile Crisis and the myth of rational choice
That the chance of success for a company selling an average product for average price is zero
That private 4 year colleges are using tension, fear, and the myth of status to run a really huge scam that is ending now
Why parents that know its a scam are still encouraging their kids to go to college
Why parents should encourage kids under the age of 8 to participate in acts of non-compliance in service of the community
