Hello from New York City!

And welcome to the 16th Edition of FRIDAY FAVORITES!

Check out this week's list of things I've learned, how I've implemented them, and what I'm enjoying or pondering.

If you're also on the adventurous pursuit of smart passive income it'll come in handy 😉.

All the best,
Enjoy,
- Adrien

I always fall back on this book whenever I get in a rut or depressed.  Couple days ago I got a small dose of burnout after getting bailed on for an important interview I wanted to conduct.  I had been overworking the days before and just didn't want to work for the rest of that day. 

That's ok.

It happens on a regular basis in entrepreneurship.  The important thing is to have support systems in place that will get you back on your feet.  For me, it's practicing stoicism and meditation, taking a break for the rest of the day, doing something fun (seeing a friend, watching a carefree movie, going for a ride on my sweet Boosted Board Gen 2 bumping to some feel-good tunes, etc...) and reminding myself that I will go to sleep tonight and tomorrow I'll feel much better.

The next day I'll read through Do The Work and instantly feel like fighting against my resistance once again.


This company has the potential to change the world in massive ways.  I'm in love with their work.

I just finished recording a monster interview with the CEO Adam Simon which lasted 2h25min raw... It was so jam-packed with value that I'm going to have to split the episode in half or in multiple different subject-focused pieces. 

Let me know which you would prefer and stay tuned for when this bad girl goes LIVE!


It's hilarious. Reminded me so much of my friends in high-school, and how we'd mess around.  It's also really profound and well thought out, like this guy.


4. What I Have Learned: Charge more and DO NOT offer your time freely to strangers.

I hate to think people take advantage of kindness, but that's reality. 

I've always offered a FREE 30-Minute Consultation to anyone who wanted to get started with their business but needed some initial guidance. 

Unfortunately, it's now at the point where the few bad eggs have ruined it for everyone.  Countless people have credited this initial meeting as the reason their business is successful today, BUT some people have booked meetings and either never shown up or bailed last minute...

Which sucks because now everyone has to go through more vetting before reaching me.


5. Thought I Am Pondering:

How will the non-tech-savvy fair in the next 10, 20, 50, 100 years? Not great it seems.

Thanks for reading, have an awesome weekend! 😁
