What Is Authority Building?

Chakras are the body’s main energy centers.  Most teachers today include seven of them.  Other models include 4, 5, 6, 8, 12, or 13.  Whichever model you choose, “the chakras” are considered the most important of 100s (or even 1000s) of energy centers in our bodies.

My Two Cents

Money is one of my Tier 1 Topics.

That makes it an entrance to many rabbit holes.

These profiles are largely for me.  I use them to record and reference.  In the future, I may make them more meaningful to the outside observer.

No guarantees.  Let’s start small.

The Basis of Commerce

This is an odd way to put it.  But it’s the only phrase that captures the entire bucket.  Gary thinks like a Scorpio.

Plans to Destroy It

Many of my heroes talk about company culture.  Gary’s idea of a “Honey Empire” is one of the best.

A Game to Be Played

Most people know Gary as “that social media guy.”  Makes sense.  He’s one of—if not the—best at it on the planet.

Not the Root of Evil

Gary wants to buy the Jets.  Big dream, but he has a practical plan for it.  Luckily, he is documenting the journey.

For the time being, this site is mostly just a data dump.  Over time, it may become more useful to the outside observer.  Who knows?

How I Think About Authority Building

For me, Money Mastery is basically one half of the overall Money puzzle. 

On the same level, I have Economics.  It’s the practical side whereas Economics is more about curiosity. 

It has many sub categories, already 4 or 5 tiers deep–and growing as more knowledge does.  Like it’s parent category, I break Money Mastery into two big chunks… Playing Markets and Financial Literacy.

Here’s a quick look at those.

 

Playing
Markets

There is a lot that goes into.  I can’t make up my mind whether to focus on the writing or the designing.  I guess it doesn’t matter.  The daily content challenge marches on.

Literacy

This site is the definition of a work-in-progress.  I can’t make up my mind whether to focus on the writing or the designing.  I guess it doesn’t matter.  The daily content challenge marches on.

My Progress So Far

More than anyone else:

Gary is the reason I started creating hero profiles.

Now that I’ve started, I see that his profile may be less useful than my other heroes to other people.  But his will likely always remain the most important to me.

I fucking love this dude.  He changed my life.

More accurately, he teamed up with Nahko to save my life.

I’m not quite sure when I found him.  I featured him all the way back in one of my first posts for Greensboro SEO Pro.
