“When applying for a job, only two things really matter: What you know (your skill set) and who you are (your integrity).  Pretending to know things you don’t is a waste of your time because you will soon be found out.” -Mark Ford

“The one thing I wish I had known in my 20’s…. EVERYTHING you think is important and meaningful has absolutely no bearing on your future life….   So the only thing I can with full integrity say I wish I had known is: nothing at all matters….  The main skill I got between my 20’s and now is that I bounce back from bad things faster….  Now I bounce back from bad things faster.  It’s freeing.  I go all out every day.  I throw myself into everything.  I cut what doesn’t work and I ignore the rules that keep me from doing what I know is possible.  And when I do everything works better for me.” -James Altucher

“How to increase your wealth one decimal point at a time:  Develop a financially valuable skill.  A financially valuable skill is a skill that will help you climb the wealth ladder one step at a time.  It is a skill that will put you in the mix whenever the opportunity to acquire wealth appears.

There are not many financially valuable skills.  In fact, there are basically only four: marketing, selling, coming up with profitable ideas, and managing profits.” -Mark Ford
