Quotes- March 2014

There is perhaps no one of our natural passions so hard to subdue as pride; disguise it, struggle with it, beat it down, stifle it, mortifying it as much as one pleases, it is still alive and will every now and then peep out and show itself.

-Ben Franklin

Whenever someone talks about something that has nothing to do with them (like offering an opinion on a book), they are talking about themselves not that thing.

Explaining things that matter: Be simple. Then simpler than that. Just say what happens. The part of reality that any given person needs to know is naturally riveting to them.

-Tucker Max

No man ever served God by doing things tomorrow.

But the human tongue is a beast that few can master. It strains constantly to break out of its cage, and if it is not tamed, it will run wild and cause you grief. Power cannot accrue to those who squander their treasure of words.

-Robert Greene

The truth is generally seen, rarely heard.

Why I’m giving away $5,000

You didn’t read that title wrong. I am, indeed, giving away anywhere from $500-to $5K dollars. Anyone can get it. You could even get it twice and have $10K.

Let me explain how this works. I recently came into some private equity money. Through that I will be buying various websites.

Here is where you and the money come in.

If you can find me sites for me to buy. I will give you a finders fee. The amount you get on the deal will depend on how the deal or deals turn out. The deals will most likely result in payouts to you of a few thousand dollars.

What I want is cool interesting sites that you visit frequently. They can be blogs, news sites, game sites, women’s fashion sites, sites that just do helpful things like video2mp3.net or entertainment sites like seenive.com for example.

What I don’t want are mainstream sites like Netflix, Facebook, or twitter. I don’t want sites that sell products. I don’t want porn sites (There is an odd and very uncomfortable to be around sort of person that runs sites like that and I am not one of them).

Once I find and acquire the site or sites I will pay you a 10% finders fee on the deal. I’m buying multiple websites, so there could be multiple people seeing payouts.

If you’re interested in participating send your list of websites to jacob@facularity.com or shoot a tweet to @JacobDHuff.

If you are an investor and have any inquires about growing your capital, feel free to contact me as well.

Don’t Argue With Me!

Argument

Don’t argue. Never argue. It’s dumb and it goes no where. I bet some of you even started arguing with that statement in your head. You’re trying to think of all the important reasons why you should argue.

But really, does it actually change a mind. Sometimes a mind can change for a little while. But then that person goes back to their old ways of thinking, after they have had time to justify their original thoughts.

Even worse. Sometimes that person changes their mind back and then hates you for disagreeing.

You know what changes a person’s mind? When you show them that your way is better.

Telling people that giving up your life to follow Jesus isn’t going to change anyone. If someone sees someone else fully living the Christian life, that may change them. That may convince them to follow Christ themselves.

Show them that your business model works best, by actually applying it. Don’t sit in a meeting room for hours discussing if it will or won’t work.

If you want to win the opinion of a person for the long term, show them that your argument actually works.

That’s tough to argue with.
