Justin Welsh talks about how Naval Ravikant’s How to Get Rich Twitter thread challenged him to leverage his time and skills to build a business on his own terms.
“I came across Naval Ravikant’s now famous Twitter thread, How to Get Rich (without getting lucky). At the time, I was working 80 hour workweeks at my executive job, making a very good living, but starting to burn out.
His perspective knocked me for a loop.
He talked about using leverage to create wealth, and these particular statements stuck out to me:
Code and media are permissionless leverage. They’re the leverage behind the newly rich. You can create software and media that works for you while you sleep. An army of robots is freely available — it’s just packed in data centers for heat and space efficiency. Use it.
