Ward, I thank you for the useful info on Tren. I myself have never run Tren yet. Considering it down the road in a few more cycles. But Clen is no good to me. I feel people over do it by not doing enough research on what it actually does to your body. THERMOGENIC wise. I had a cousin think he knew what he was doing and took 2 dosages of clen yesterday ( when packaging advised 1 in morning and 1 at night) for pre workout and he had loved his worked out so in the afternoon he decided to take 2 dosages again. Of course since he is my cousin he did not tell me about this being that i would of strongly advised against him doing so. Anyways he called me freaking out how his heart wouldn't stop pounding and how cracked out he felt. I told him he was and idiot and never to take it again.
I agree with Kevin and some of the other posters. I feel for those people who are trying to make it on 46k a year. It can be very difficult. The American Society has had a “keeping up with the Jones” complex for many years now and it seems as if that attitude is crashing down around them. I hate to see it happen. All these people wanted was the “American Dream”. It just so happens that that dream kept getting bigger and more high tech, it continues to do so. People forgot how to live within their means and are now, unfortunately however deserving some think it may be, being slapped with reality. Also, please don’t think that all six figure income homes are filled with arrogant, self serving pricks. My household income is almost 8 times the national average. We donate on a regular basis to a variety of local charities and organizations. We will gladly help anyone who asks in setting up their budget and/or evaluating their financial situation, including giving them tips that we use to hold onto and make money. I live in Texas so property is not as high as in other areas. Where I live at homes can easily reach 3 million plus, however we did not buy a home that expensive. We live in a 400k house, granted its 5 bed/4 bath/6 living/3 dining/ 3 kitchen. We put 75% down and financed the rest for tax purposes. Why stress a fat mortgage payment, outrageous property taxes and home owners dues!?!?!? Just so you can say look at me?!?!?! It makes no sense. Set your budget, live within it. Yes it is nice to have, but there will alway be someone out there with more than you. Look at Chris and his 60′ tv and beer keg making 145k a year. That wouldn’t buy the limoges china, sterling flatware and crystal we eat with. As sure as I say that, there is someone out there with even more expensive utensils than that. I guess the difference is that we would sell everything that we owned and do without if someone in our family needed it. Life is about taking care of and being with the ones that you love, nothing else.
I have already written a post on what Gurley meant and intended when he wrote this essay on the lifetime value model. In my blog post https:///2016/10/14/a-half-dozen-more-things-ive-learned-from-bill-gurley-about-investing/ I discuss issues like the game on the field problem. A “growth at virtually any cost” mentality can be dangerous and deadly for a startup. There is no hard and fast formula that determines the right level of paid spending on growth. High customer acquisition cost can quickly become uneconomic. The benefits of hyper growth eventually start to reflect an S curve most notably when the benefits of a network effects start to decline. At a point an additional user of a system no longer generates the same benefit it did when the company was smaller and had fewer users. For example, an incremental new user when you have only thousands of customers is worth far more than when you have millions of customers. Growth is still important but hyper growth driven by an outsize paid customer acquisition cost is no longer financially supportable. The goal of a business at that point should be greater organic growth driven by the sticky and viral growth engines.
