in #blog4 years ago (edited)

I always thought New York was a dirty city with bad weather that smelled like piss and was full of rude people. Some of those things are true, but what nobody told me about NYC was that people out here hustle harder than anywhere else in the world.

Instead of saying that (because they're idiots who don't know how to properly use language), what they say is something like: "The city has a certain energy about it. You can feel it in the air."

Not like that's not true, but it doesn't really explain the frenzied obsession for upward mobility that consumes anyone here who doesn't work in a boutique clothing store or Starbucks.

You couldn't ask for better masters

Maybe I'm a little biased. The only people I know in NYC are Jews, and New York Jews are a different breed than what I'm used to. Not like I didn't meet thousands of them in Israel, but something happens when you put them all in NYC. It's like.. I don't know. Hard to explain the vibe really.

I mean, Jewish people are generally polite, likely a result of having a guilt-ridden consciousness about perceived slights and over-analyzed social interactions.

That's one thing that I always liked about Jewish events - despite the wealth, there's very little pretentiousness. People are open to talking to each other. You see someone, introduce yourself, shake hands like adults and then proceed to have polite conversation that usually morphs into a philosophical discussion about insignificant details of everyday events. Like an episode of Seinfeld.

Honestly, I haven't quite figured out the Jewish scene yet. I'm tempted to say that it's very superficial, even by New York standards. In this city it's all about the clothes you're wearing, your job, and your apartment. Compared to LA where it's all about your physical appearance (body) and what kind of car you drive.

Writing that, I just realized that the Jewish scene in NYC has one more quality that people judge each other by: how Jewish you are.

It seems obvious now that I think about it. Maybe that's why I still feel kind of uncomfortable at these things. Yeah ok, I'm Jewish. But only because my mom is and that's just how Jewish law works. Your mom's Jewish? Boom. So are you.

But I don't practice anything, don't pray, don't date only Jewish girls, don't restrict myself to kosher food... nothing really.

Who are you wearing tonight?

Sure, I lived in Israel for a few years and was even in the army. But that doesn't make me a New York Jew. That makes me an Israeli. And despite how it may seem from the outside, those are two very different animals. Israelis just have a kind of "embedded" Judaism in them. Hebrew (EDIT: and Arabic) is the national language and their cultural values are structured from Jewish values.

There's a lot of variety within the Israeli world as well, but I don't want to get into that right now. The point is that I feel more Israeli than Jewish.

I was in the army, I did my time. I paid my dues to the Jewish people. So if I want to show up to Shabbat dinner in basketball shorts and a Punisher t-shirt I bought from Walmart? Isn't that my right?

If you've ever been to an Israeli wedding, you'd understand.

But we're not in Israel anymore, Toto. This is Manhattan baby, and if you're not wearing $300 dark jeans with shoes that make you look like a try-hard lawyer then wyd?

I fucking hate it, honestly. I hate that shit. I'm from LA man, I don't want to dress to impress. I want to work out to impress and let my body do the talking. But people don't seem to care about that here. They're more interested in the packaging than what's actually inside the box.

Ironic that I'm complaining about sizzle vs steak.

But that's all it is - complaining. Honestly I feel like I won the fucking birth lottery by being born Jewish. Shit, they paid ME to become an Israeli citizen. Even bought me a plane ticket.

Being Jewish here is great if for no other reason than all of the free meals and parties that go on in New York. There's literally something to do every single night if you want. And my good friend is basically famous in the community, so not only does he know about virtually every event, but without exaggeration he knows at least 10 people every where we go. You'd expect nothing less from a guy who actually used to throw parties in NYC and Tel Aviv for years.

"If you can't make it here, you're a loser"

Another interesting benefit of coming to New York is the infusion of borderline desperation that you feel towards making money. With so much to do and such a high price ceiling, you feel like if you're not making at least $100k a year then you're a bum. Contrast that with Thailand where you can live like a king on $3k a month.

It's definitely an adjustment, but since my work is remote anyway, I see this place a crucible where I'm more motivated to hustle than SE Asia. I'd still like to go back there for other reasons, but for now NYC is where it's at.

The crypto scene here is the real deal, too. One of my biggest partners lives here, and when he heard that I was in NYC he invited me for lunch.

It was strange meeting him after only working together online, but I got over that quickly. This guy is easily one of the most famous people in the ICO space and has his fingers in all kinds of deals. To gain physical proximity to someone like this was a lottery ticket I was happy to cash in.

Our brief lunch turned into a 4 hour brainstorming session. I'd watch the gears turn in his head as I pitched him some crypto-related idea. Then he'd interrupt me and say, "I'll introduce you to [nsert big baller here]. He owns a magazine/crypto exchange/investment fund/whatever in [some foreign country]."

In fact, one of the biggest deals I'm working on right now is with none other than @bullsvsbears. He and a friend have quietly started a crypto quant fund that does algorithmic trading. These two "kids" have over $100M under management.

A friend of mine who used to work on Wall Street told me once about an associate of his who would send out a daily newsletter to fellow traders early in the morning. It would have all kinds of news, market analysis, and price predictions for the day. $10 a day to get the newsletter. $300/month.

I figured since these guys were essentially doing the same thing, albeit with crypto, there's room for them to create a crypto day trading newsletter too. @bullsvsbears agreed, and now we're going to use some publications owned by my partner to spread this thing all over the place. In exchange for the marketing, we take a percentage of newsletter sales and a percentage of their management fees.

And I really didn't do much except come up with the idea and explain it to a few people. EZ.


The funny thing is that if I had never started posting on this godforsaken website, I never would have had this opportunity. Any of them, really.

Who knows if I would have gained the type of traction that I did if I hadn't written those crypto articles on here. Without those, I never would have met this guy in NYC. And I wouldn't have met the people on the other side of the deal either.

As much shit as I talk about this place, it's opened a ton of doors to me that I never would have had access to otherwise. And I'm not even talking about money. Shit, I've probably lost money on everything I've spent on bidbots.

But it was never about the money, you know? Not because I'm rich. But because I had such low requirements for living that I was able to "grind hard" in Thailand for six months while to everyone else it looked like I was on vacation.

That's partially the reason why I'm publishing something today. I don't really have anything important to say. Not that I ever did, but I used to enjoy yelling at people on here and calling them idiots. I still do, but sadly my ego has been sated. I'm just not hungry anymore.

And while it feels good to let out a humblebrag and say, "Oh, I don't need Steemit anymore. I'm big time now," I know that kind of thinking is a mistake.

This shit platform is what got me where I am today. Sure, I still had to do the work and write those masterpieces, but without the option to exchange some fake money for an instant audience, I never would have been inspired to keep going.

Say what you want about me or the way I write, but the fact is that my articles have attracted people to me who find that my writing resonates with them. They find me on Discord, we chat about shit, and sometimes big deals come out of it.

Do not pass go. Go directly to Crossfit

Look at @tibra for example. The guy is the best kept secret on this platform. Shit, he's so smart that half the time I don't even know what the fuck he's talking about.

But for some reason, he came to my Discord channel and started talking about god knows what. The guy was straight up John Nash-levels of genius to the point where I'm not sure he even realized that I had no idea what he was talking about.

That said, I knew that working with someone who was that smart would be a good idea. So now we have a Discord group full of developers who are interested in building a blockchain-based platform that aggregates content from Steem, EOS, and another social media platform one of my clients is building.

Never would have happened if I hadn't sat down and written some long ass rant every week for however long I did it for.

I don't want to get lazy, you know? But I feel like that's what's happening. I'm going to wake up one day in the future and all the shit I built will have decomposed, and I'll be like, "Fuck, remember when I used to write on Steemit? I gotta get back into that."

It's like being out of shape for so long and then finally getting your fat ass back to the gym. You know you need to do it, you don't want to do it, and you're capable of putting it off for years despite the fact that you think about doing it every single day.

Shit, this article isn't even any good. But I still need to write it. I still need to flush out all the gunk from my brain pipes so I can get to the real shit, that good old fashioned @yallapapi goodie goodie.

It's not like I don't write anymore at all. I've been pretty consistent with the Instagram. But I almost feel like that's a waste of time. Writing anything intelligent on Instagram is like putting on a Shakespearean play for a bunch of stray dogs. They just won't get it.

Actually, it's kind of like writing on here, now that I think about it. Most of the sub-continent dwellers begging for pennies probably won't even read this, at least judging by 75% of comments that my posts normally get.

"I'd rather be hungry with desires than bloated and tired"

Many of you know that I started out planning on doing social media management. Once I got into crypto, things kind of just took off from there. And while I'm still fairly active in the crypto space, since coming to New York I've been focusing more and more on social media management for traditional businesses.

Crypto is great - don't get me wrong. But the deals are precluded by long conversations and take a while to happen. Plus I can't pay my expensive ass rent in tokens. I need real US dollars.

Besides, NYC is FULL of businesses, most of which probably don't have any sort of social media management happening. And with the pressure of making money so tangible here in New York, I knew I needed to make a change if I wanted to stay here without feeling guilty about spending all my money.

For the past year or so, I've been managing around 70 Instagram accounts. Most of them are mine - mostly niche pages - while a few are for clients. I use special invite-only software that some random ass person hooked me up with after buying an IG page from him.

Even if I focused on nothing else, I don't think I'd be able to do everything needed to manage all of these accounts without automation software. You have to follow hundreds of people, like hundreds of pieces of content, comment on shit... it's impossible. Not to mention boring.

But this software man... truly a lifesaver. Pretty much everything is automated. You just have to configure the settings and let it run. Check it every few days to make sure it still works and you're good to go.

The point is that I knew I could handle more accounts. But how to get the clients? Cold emailing worked fine with ICOs because I could just copy and paste from sites like ICOAlert. Tedious? Yes. Effective? Also yes.

Maybe I'd gotten lazy since coming back to America. You know, the type of laziness you feel when you get some experience under your belt and start to sneer at the hard work you put in to get your scars.

Copy and paste for an hour to send 80 emails? Fuck that.

Why learn to be a dev when you can just hire one?

By pure luck, I managed to find a piece of software that scrapes search engines for contact pages of websites based on certain keywords and locations. It also has a posting tool that allows you to post to all of the contact pages way faster than a human would be able to. I can hit 10-20k pages a day, easy.

Most of the people are going to tell me to fuck off and I'm cool with that. If sales was easy, everyone would do it.

But statistically speaking, when you contact such a massive amount of people, you're going to get some who are interested. Why do you think spam is still a thing?

And it's no different when you're selling an actual service, like I am. Basically what I do is introduce myself, show them a few pages I manage with a lot of followers, explain how I'll be growing their page and then give them a ridiculous offer. In the past week I've already signed up five people.

Sure, I'm only charging a few hundred for the privilege of working with me, but what do I care? The whole process is basically automated at this point anyway from the first contact to the running of the account. All I have to do is close the deals and configure the scraper + IG management tool.

That's what we call being efficient.

And no, I won't tell you what tools I use. But you can find some cool ones on this site.

Even though I have a habit of counting my little chickies before they hatch, I can't help but get excited about how easy this shit is. It's strange that we spend so much time agonizing about "starting a business" or "writing a book" or some equally impossible-sounding goal, but then once we actually start on it, we realize that it's actually 100x easier than we ever could have expected.

My personal sticking point has been making videos. I've been wanting to do this forever, and despite a brief 30 day vlogging experiment and a few "exercise" videos, I haven't been doing shit about it. But not a day has gone by in the past few months where I haven't thought, "should today be the day that I start the channel?"

The funny thing is that I know once I start it, everything will be fine. I just can't get my bitch ass to start it. I need proper incentive, you know?

If you need me I'll be in my trailer

Actually that's not true. I have incentive. "Building your brand," remember? That's the hustle these days. I used to think that was all just an excuse for attention-starved people to listen to themselves speak.

Perfect for me, in other words.

But now I'm beginning to think that there's more to it than that. You need to build your brand so you don't have to go back to having a real job. You need to build it so that companies will pay you thousands of dollars to speak at their university. You need to build it so Gucci will pay you $10,000 to take a selfie decked out in their gear.

Something like that.

And NYC is the easiest place to do it too. I thought Thailand was a feature-rich environment, but it doesn't hold a candle to the amount of shit you can do in New York. I can literally just walk down the street with a camera and film myself eating pizza and it'll be interesting. Not healthy, but interesting.

The biggest problem isn't even making the videos - it's getting anyone to watch them once you've made them. But I even have a solution for that.

Remember that scraper I was telling you about? I can add a link to one of my videos in that introductory email. I already link my personal IG, LinkedIn, and FB pages. Shit, I even link to an old ass Steemit article that I wrote about managing IG accounts.

Not only does it help to reassure people that I'm some Ukranian teenager trying to steal their identity from his babushka's basement, but it also gets me lots of clicks on my social media accounts. I've been averaging 50+ adds on LinkedIn since I started sending posts every day.

Bravey is... ignoring consequences

I used to think that LinkedIn was THE original circlejerk, way worse than Steemit. Be that as it may, people respect LinkedIn. You're less likely to run a scam on someone when your entire professional history is in the same place.

Just imagine if I had a link to a YouTube video with my beautiful face and sexy voice doing something in New York. "Hey I want to manage your IG page. Oh and by the way here's a link to my YouTube channel so you can see I'm a real person."

Who knows if people would actually click that shit. The curious ones would, and that's all that matters. Once YouTube sees that you're actively trying to promote your own shit, they help you out too. And the more watch time your videos have, the faster you can get to Partner status and start earning some shekels.

Perhaps even more important, however, is that video is the one medium that I still haven't worked up the balls to approach. I've been pussyfooting around it for years, too scared to take the plunge.

You think it's easy being so expressive through text? Words are perfect - they look the same every day no matter what page they appear on. It's just up to you to put them in a certain order.

But human beings? Fuck man, I don't want ANYONE to see me when I get in one of my moods. Let alone the few people out there who actually like what I write.

Deep down I know that I have nothing to worry about. Those people already know me and likely don't give a shit. They won't judge me. Did you know I still keep all my social media separate from one another? I just can't bring myself to let people know about the weird shit that I write. And once those floodgates open, there's no turning back.

Once my mom finds my blog, it'll get a lot less interesting.

What should I start making videos about?

Did you like reading this godawful nonsense?

Then you'll also love this trash:

follow, resteem and smash dat mf like yo

And also resteem this post

You know, for old times' sake


I would live to visit nyc but not interested at about peacocking with superficial bullshit. I’ll let those low self of steem people toot there own horns and laugh at them as they waste there money

What are they winning?

This is where shit gets done. Things move quickly in NYC. I'm not crazy about buying a new wardrobe when I'm perfectly fine wearing board shorts and $8 t-shirts. But if that's the costume I have to wear to rub elbows with finance bros and people who buy apartment buildings, I'm cool with that.

I got my costume on sale as a box set for $99 lol even has stripes and I can blend in with the peacockers if I want. Step aside fancy pants “there’s a new Cock in the barn”

There must be so much money to grab in NY if you are in the right business...

Read the whole thing. I can't read most people's posts on this platform but you are the exception.

You need to correct that formatting error to make a proper link.

I've been working a lot these days too. Mostly into developing my skills in photo/video editing and other skills so that I can become a freelancer or something. Everything seems to be moving in a positive direction and here I am visiting my family in Canada after 3 years in China and I spend most of my time learning. I feels good but I also wish I can see some monetization. Your scraping tool sounds good and I want to be able to leverage my YouTube/Steemit as well to get clients.

I'm not as interested in investing in cryptocurrencies anymore because it is all speculation. I'd rather develop a sustainable business (whether it be on the crypto space or not) that actual provides revenue instead of watching numbers go up and down hoping to strike it big like a slave.

How can I go about finding developers? Let's say I wanted to build an application on the steem blockchain. I don't know if I will go through the time to learn programming and all that so I'd rather just outsource/partner up with someone else to try and create something.


@kenanqhd you have nice content.i am really impressed by you. i also have some good content if you have some time go ahead and upvote me by this way i will get some confidense.thanks

Hey what's up buddy, always enjoy your humor and writing style. I can definitely relate to keeping social media and real life seperate, like 2 people in my life know I have a Youtube channel and they found out accidentally.

I'd love to interview you on my Youtube channel sometime if your up for it, I think my audience would love hearing from you and I'd love to pick your brain on various topics.

Haha Google Plus aka "I'm a Google Employee"

Glad you're still posting in this circle jerk. And yes, Steemit seems to be a place for crypto nerds to get info, learn and network with others in this space. So yeah, once you get rich don't forget about us Steemians.
Oh and yeah, the time I visited NYC , the city did feel "electric."

I won't forget. This place is like a backup for all the good stuff I wrote in the past year anyway.

Thanks @yallapapi and it is also a good place to talk about your crypto related "projects" here when the time is right.
I think more people are realizing that Steemit is the crypto news platform for many crypto nerds.

Times Square doesn't count

call 911, he has a serious condition over there.

Me encantaria poder vivir ahi T_T

I could never live in New York state until they become more bitcoin friendly

Damn straight that bit license is just garbage yo.

What an amazing opening! That sure got me reading. Comparisons to NYC vs Thailand also, very interesting! So I'd need 10k a month there just to be normal compared to here in Thailand where I can be 'normal' even on 1k? (Ok, that's a major stretch but many do - with buffer for insurance, flights, housing 1k in Thailand is also 'living the life' for some ... 3k i completely agree, it's comfort+ plus although perhaps not 'like a king' unless you want to be in a rice field. Bangkok certainly 3k is more 'normal' to the 10k to NYC ... buzz down the eastern seaboard 2 hours in your car to where I am tho, 3k is rolling along ok and a lot fresher in air and sea breezes :)
I did enjoy your post, you have a real flow. I didn't think i would get all the way to the end but just about as i wanted to stop, it ended.

Great flow, a little more brevity would be awesome. Been following you and just realised I haven't been reading. Will do now, esp. for the Southeast Asia references, great in the moment stuff !

Hello @yallapapi!
Nice to see you back on steemit, it's always interesting to read about your adventures, thanks for sharing. I have been in New York a few times real fast, but not really been living there or anything... They say it's a funny place...

Anyway I did the math on some of the resteeming services, it would be cool if you could take a look at the article and tell me what you think in the comments, since you have been using many of these resteem-hustlers... =)


Check out my article, it goes into full detail. And I examine several services. They are not all scams, some of them are pretty cool, I made a list so you can see where to get the most bang for your buck!
There are even a couple of free ones posted in there... =)

hi. you make a very trending post on steemit.

Doctors say he's dead. Jewish laws say he's alive. Can a hospital turn off life support?


It's really funny how things moves so fast this days in NY. A place where dreams are made,the city that never sleeps @yallapapi

Stray dog here on my second day on Steemit and I’m conflicted by what I’ve been seeing. My first reaction was similar to yours where everything on here seems fake and comments only consist of “hey! Great post I really connect with you! Vote my comment”. It made me want to throw up after a life of reading arguments on Facebook and took me back to my uncomfortable session watching the Black Mirror Social Credits episode. But now on the other hand I am starting to think is the alternative better? Like I know conflict can be good and stimulating when it is constructive but on the other side of the internet I feel like we have gone too far and people create conflict for the sake of it. I like the ideas behind a decentralised knowledge sharing social media site but from what I’ve seen so far it seems like everyone is too scared to challenge any ideas at the risk of losing their precious steem points or whatever??

IMO this place is good for getting an engaged readership that you can leverage as social proof to build your business, get clients, or support others social media platforms. Also there are networking benefits to being visible on here, which is my new main motivation for posting.

Regarding being too scared to post controversial opinions, that’s why I coined the term circle jerk in regards to steemit. But all that aside, once you realize that the benefit to posting here isn’t money or quality discussions, but the exposure for your writing and connecting with potential diamonds in the rough, then it makes the place more palatable. Read some of the posts in my sig for a better explanation.

Mm I guess I will see if I can endure and see how I go then, I think I may have been hoping for a bit too much when I heard what it was all meant to be about particularly if some form of compensation is involved. The way I understood it was that it was a social network that takes away the big business element and allows people to actually connect without some sort of alterior motive (allowing actual quality discussions) but now it just sounds like that has been lost to just another opportunity for people to sell.

It does take away the big business element, but that's not necessarily a good thing. Big businesses are big businesses because they know how to add value to the human race, something that most of the people who use this site have no idea how to do.

Instead, we have a free for all where people beg for upvotes and post shit content. With no guidelines for content that can be advertised on (because there is no advertising), the content on here has no reason to be good. Some people who have been here long enough still get upvotes from their friends who have lots of SP, but that's just a popularity contest. If you want to play that game then you're welcome to, it's just not for me.

If there wasn't the option to boost posts on here, I wouldn't be here.

Yeah fair call. I think all the recent media coverage about that sort of thing has started to bring out the tin foil hat man in me...

I guess at the end of the day everyone is going to have an agenda so it’s going to be near impossible to develop a pure “social network” that isn’t driven by someone’s self interest

Steemit is all about money. It is a bunch of VDS (virtual dick sucking) . You will get use to the slurping/ gagging noises around here.

Shit ey, is it good for anything else? Other than stroking an ego?

I guess I am a stray dog as well and stumbled on your reply to the F blog post. I’ve retired from Dick sucking ( virtual or otherwise) so maybe this isn’t the place for me...

Yeah it's been a pretty rough start from what I thought I was joining haha...

Funny bone , you are, in every sense of it!!

Okay, okay, so....from all of that you know what I really liked? (I hope it's not because it's me, though!) Is the social media / 🍩 (cake with chocolate and sprinkles) plz!

the lifestyle in a city like NY is very moved, I have acquaintances there and the day is based on money, money and more money, of course you earn well but life is very moving, although of course that city has beautiful landscapes like the central park, it's a question of finding your own equilibrium

Competition and societies' trends and culture influence and affect peoples life style....people mind more on what people think rather than thinking things / ways on how oneself become better... work and do more effort to make oneself happy not doing it to please others....thank you yallapapi for this information...it is an eye opener to people who has wide perspective..

Very Good post.. i always like your post

I'm from South Africa, I've never travelled abroad before. New York always lools so mythical on tv. Its like, this place can only exist in the home of the free, land of the brave. You make it sound more earthly, more of a place that exists and I can visit someday and have a good time starring at all those funny people.

Love you man, the best ever blogger who explains things down to the point with exact details and emotions from the meetings and projects and being open about it. Resonates with the feeling, and i am pretty sure you are the one big guy i would love to meet in NY someday

forget everything.. just sleep

Really loved reading about New York Jews. As a Texas Jew, they've always been fascinating to me. 10/10 would recommend based on Jewish content alone. Really spins the old dreidal.

Damn look at all these Jews popping up out of nowhere on Steemit.. I guess I'm not special anymore

Yeah there's more and more every year

Hi Yallapapi,

I like your article All the BEST MAN .

It's a competitive city, no doubt. I like that aspect of it. It is a gathering of high IQ, competitive people from around the country, and around the world. But, it also has very cool, very compassionate, very friendly people----most of whom are native born New Yorkers, who find the "bridge and tunnel" crowd more than a little amusing. :)

I was taken a little by surprise at how instantly I felt at home when I got back from 9 years in San Diego. I turned on the Yankee game, and as the familiar voices drifted out from the speakers describing the game, instantly my 9 years in SD felt like nothing more than an extended vacation.

It was a pretty awesome discovery, just how this city gets under one's skin. I'm pretty sure now I'll never really feel at 'home' anywhere else. Smart? Check. Sarcastic? Check. Cultured? Check. Impatient with fools? Check. Deep down, a heart of gold? Check. That's a New Yorker.

This is the first time I am reading one of your posts and it is the longest post I have ever read. It is an epistle really.
I saw the words New York and got hooked / then crypto then social media - all things I am interested in. Will check out your discord.
While making your millions - I hope the city and it’s values do not swallow you up and that you stay real. Also, hoping that you make some genuine friends in NYC - there are still some good people there.

I can't imagine not staying real. Maybe when I make my first million. We'll see

thats a blog you have write this so informativly,just outstanding

Happen what

Hey.. you are really post a thing about NYC.. All peoples thinking NYC is nice city but after reading your post article i feel something different. Thanks

Yes, the Jews are very polite and the Jewish people do not even have a sense of contention.
He gives more importance to his work.
And there are also many people in Israel.
Thanks for giving this information

Hello @yallapapi. I meet your blog because @warrior-sage. He give me the best give anyone can recieve, the opportunity to learn.

Learn is freedom, and i need little of that because I'm live in Venezuela. Warrior realized that and put in my Discord a few old post writted by you.

Let me tell you this: you are helping a guy far away in a southamerican country to achieve his dreams just with your texts. I wanna say thank you about that.

I read all the post, and it is impossible to cover all in one comment, but the thing that touch me more was the networking important and Steemit like a tool to meet new people. Because steemit I am meeting new people that meaby can help me in any way, because steemit i can talk with ppl out of the human crisis and remember with out of here are a world where have food and medicine is a normal thing. I joined to your Discord server, you will see me there soon.

And about the video thing... i think you should try to do lifestyle youtuber channel, but a real one with your real knowledge about life. Text help a lot but can see your face create a heavyer emotional engagement in your audience.

(sorry about my bad english, right now i'm to busy to check it in grammarcheck because i'm working im my projects)


Thank you brother, glad you enjoyed them. Will take that into consideration regarding the videos. Best of luck

Thank you,

You have an enviable writing style which has a wittingly humorous kink.
You have talked about the methods and tools of automating the businesses which people run to take away the painful grind and monotony and therefore have more energy to concentrate on how to expand and grow these businesses more swiftly and fruitfully.I would surely like to try out these tools for automating the businesses to buy myself some more freedom.Thanks a ton for providing us with the links.
A very useful post. I wish you all the luck for your future posts as well. Keep creating ,there is a whole lot of learning in your Post.

Resteeming u for old time sake :p
Well nice sharing hope to get the good posts coming :D

To me, though I have jot dreamt of going to NYC, but I still seebit as theyvsaid is the city fullbof honey and sugar. According to whatvi was told, it is a home of no suffering.

Of course, Jewish people are very much polite but somehow wicked.

The Israelis have almost same values culture wise. In the BIBLE, the Jewish claimed to be descendants of the ancillary nt Israelis.

Just joined this platform and your post was trending so gave it a read. How the fuck do you right so much at one go? No wonder you write just once a month.

Not the ideal post to read for a beginner with you giving shining reviews of both - the platform and the sub conti cough people. So besides the useless ranting about why you are in a love/hate relationship with New York which after a point of time made sense considering it gave you shit loads which you couldn't have gotten sitting in Thailand, why have you even written the post?

Coz you don't like the platform or the people sucking up to you. You have the money. You can pay your rent. You are what I learnt in the last 20 minutes a "WHALE" on the platform. You're nailing big deals. Then why write?

I'm not a whale. I just happen to be motivated and on my way to success in the real world, not the Steemit fake money universe.

I wrote the post because writing posts contributed a great deal to my professional progress over the past six months, and I believe to ignore that and start coasting is a mistake.

They say in business that "what got you here will not get you there," meaning that as your business grows you need to change your strategy. But I don't think I'm quite big enough yet that I can't afford to crank out a few thousand words per week.

These articles aren't really for the money, they're mainly to show off how smart I am and how interesting my life is. In a few years people will read these articles because they'll be curious about how I started out. I plan on keeping them busy.

Seeing is really believing. One of the day i will try to also visit New york so that i can have similar experiences.
Thank you for the update.

Animal, man and beast are options under the hood in all of us. But only one of them can follow the evolutionary pathway to an orders higher quality of life. One can get stuck in either, or more likely both of the other two, sniffing the exhilarating glues typical of each, keeping you high on primitive joys ranging from base animals delights to being power drunk.

Those joys cannot bring true happiness though, forever casting a shadow of imperfection..and escaping those imperfect options is a tough call, requiring a virtual rebirth into an elevated perception of reality, a different orientation, a different ideal, a different life style, a different moral code, nearly impossible to imagine from within the forests of delusional beliefs no more than excuses conjured up for maintaining the addictive nectar flows...a very tough call indeed, but without a shadow of doubt the only one worth following.

Fucking awesome article. Love your work. Quirky, honest, self effacing. Please follow me as well. You are a funny dude. I am an Australian living in Central America with my Viking Husband and dachshund and three cats.

hello @yallapapi, interesting your article, your ad is an example to those who are looking for an acceptable position in the day to day.

Amazing cool
