  1. What if you worked retail for 3 years? I spend 85 to 100 dollars on hemp, beads, build and have 2 people selling my bracelets. I’m starting a online shop off off Etsy. But I’m feel like I’m not getting out of the house or old jobs?

  2. I’m 19 a salesman at traders village selling glasses wallets and chargers and headphones I make about 200 every Saturday and sundays and gonna follow my dream to become a entrepreneur

  3. @garyv plz teach about importance of credit and begin building or piggy back at 16 w/$ecurecard. My credit card always had my back but zoom in on the flipping name. (Scarface voice) who always had my back? me! Who do I trust chico? Me! Plz follow me at donthaveacowman312

  4. trust me guys..all these people made it out cause they were lucky…dont feel bad that these strategies dont work out..stay humble..

    keep praying and eventually, one will work out…thats how i started trading stocks…

  5. I have done that thing of selling and buying. I have even my own website, but It was not successful. It is a failure for me not only in the terms of money but also in mindset.

  6. The most precious advice is that there are no absolutes. Full-time entrepreneur or full-time business-college are not the only options. There are so many variables in the long run. One of the best pieces of advice Gary has ever given in my opinion is this: Work your 9-5 get back, eat something take a shower and devote as many hours as you can on your business and keep that up for a minimum of 36 months. That way you can pay your bills AND work on your passion. Why passion? Because if you do not like the procedure of doing it, you will get sick of it. It's like putting you on a diet. You can't sustain that for too long.

    However, as in my case, if you really hate your job, can't stand another minute and want to make a 180 degrees turnover in your life, just do it. As Gary said there are so many in-between stages to entrepreneurship. I decided to quit my job in the army, move out of Greece and migrate to Germany to study International Business. Now do I believe that college is the best? Certainly not. But what I need right now is a group of like-minded people. People that I can communicate and share ideas with. People that are on my intellectual people with whom I can have a healthy conversation. There is nothing worse than feeling that you don't belong and are forced to oppress that feeling because you are supposed to "fit in".

    Giving up a set-up life for me, selling my car, move to Germany to my sister's house and start from scratch is far less scary for me than staying in a dead-end job that leads to regret. It's time to challenge myself again after 8 years of taking it easy and worrying about things that do not push me forward.

  7. As an international student studying in America too, I think that the main point of his concern is that as a foreigner in America on a VISA you can literally not do anything… Like… It is illegal and you will get deported if you work (even for free). So entrenpreneurship is super supressed at that stage

  8. Any comments on Gary’s advice to flip some stuff on eBay or wherever to get a quick education in entrepreneurship?

    Having actually done that, I can say that it’s an extremely valuable experience.

    You can probably learn a lot more about how to operate a profitable business with a couple dozen ebay sales than a lot of people learn in a whole semester at business school.

    Like Tim said, book learning has some value, but there’s no substitute for real-world experience.

  9. "ask for 10 percent off" I fucking love it. That and other things like that should be part of some kind of VR game. Like the Danger Room that the Xmen use to train them and it would help with people fear and other issues. #idea

  10. Loved the video. 2 GREAT Entrepreneurs together advising and mentoring people.Love it thank you gary for this show and tim I loved reading 4-hour workweek its amazing{even thought i am 15 it helped me a lot.}Thanks a lot u guys.

  11. I hate that work "entrepreneur", but I love to see profit and get these different experiences that come from buying/selling. I hope one day I could talk to Tim Ferris and Garry. Tim inspired me early on. Lol, I'm still 19 😀
