BUILD YOURSELF.

Rather than trying to build $1 billion company, why not try to create a $1 billion you?

On becoming John Wick

If you think historically, individuals last, kingdoms, empires, and civilizations don’t last. For example, we still read Seneca albeit the holy Roman empire is now gone.

One thing I really like about the John Wick movie series, is that it deifies the individual. We all want to become John Wick, or Keanu Reeves, instead of becoming a conglomerate.

Are you brave enough?

Why do people like the idea of building a company instead of themselves? I think it is a morality thing. In America, the notion that being self-centered is bad and evil. Even if you’re not religious, the Christian morality still holds firm.

This is why people also like to follow fashion trends, because they lack the courage to do some thing or wear something which day themselves posit as cool.

Personal courage to put yourself out there.

What is your most valuable possession? Your first and last name. Your name.

That’s when it comes to branding and self branding, the best brand is you.
