  • Brent Yves


    From an european point of view:
    it seems to me that he explains how (original) american capitalistic structures function:
    instead of speaking with each others they (people) only try to *sell* something to others,..!?
    His clothes and hat remember Robert de Niro in „Mean streets“ to me, without out the beard.

    What I have heard and try to practice is to make each person feel as if they are the only other person in the world while you are with them. People only remember what is said if they have an emotional connection to you. It does not matter that people agree, but it does matter how they feel when they walk away from their experience with you.

    Ever have that bad review where you felt empowered to do better compared to one in which you felt belittled like a little child or where you could never do enough correctly? Yes. It is all about perception and feelings that come as a result. Be the hero to inspire and not the zero who stands by and laughs.

  • Ex Nihilo
