Our New Free Personality Test is Now Ready!

Who wants to take it?

You’ll learn your Primary Enneagram Type, Tritype and Instinctual Stack and get a free report like the one attached, which is based on over 25 years of research and refinement from some of the leading experts in the field.

It just may be the best and most accurate personality test in the world today.

(Most tests only get your type right 65% of the time. Ours does 85-90% of the time).

And we will be making it even more powerful and insightful soon.

I’d also love some feedback before we push it into Prime Time on to some large email lists.

(Note: works on all platforms right now except some iOS/iPhone versions, which has a bug we’re currently fixing)

Today Was a Good Day

My new company TrueSelf rolled out registration for our first online course — The Personality Advantage System (based on the Enneagram).

And I ripped off a $26,000 / 20+% total day gain in my options portfolio, with the biggest winners being recently made heavily concentrated bets in Lam Research and Micron.

I made these concentrated bets in these 2 companies on the basis of the stock market being short term #overbought but still rallying and those tech stocks still under participating in the recent rally, in part due to analysts underestimating the Tech Semiconductor Supercycle that is currently underway with trends in: Self-Driving Cars, Big Data, Data Centers, AI/Machine Learning, Cryptomining, Internet of Things and More.

I continue to be surprised about how low the ratio is amongst my friends of capital invested in crypto vs stocks (or any other asset class for that matter).

There is just as big a killing to be made in the stock market as the crypto market if you know how to use options for leverage.

Investing in crypto is just being an angel investor in early stage tech products. And it’s not very smart to be so concentrated in one sub-sector of tech (crypto) at one very early stage of maturity (mostly 100M -$10B with most projects being super risky with no revenue).

For long term financial performance it’s critical to exercise proper diversification across many variables:

• Company Maturity — invest in mature tech companies with billions of dollars in revenue that are changing the world, not just speculative crypto-startups with nearly 0 in revenue.

• Multiple sectors and asset classes (especially if you’re nearing 40)

• Asset allocation of your investments that properly reflects your desired risk profile. And if you pick a hyper-aggressive profile like putting more than 10% of your investable assets in crypto make sure you can stomach the volatility of the return profile. Higher returns almost always entail higher volatility. i.e. don’t buy high and sell low because you aren’t willing to ride out the downs.

One benefit of non-correlated asset allocation is the ability to rotate capital to the largest opportunities.

Due to my asset allocation of 80-90% stocks and options, and 10-20% crypto, I’m now booking some gains in the stock market with the indexes near the top end of their range and rotating at least $5k into crypto with the market near the bottom end of its range.

I’ve gained a ton of benefit from the crypto facebook group I’m in with a number of friends who regularly share knowledge, advice, links, tips and tricks and so now I’m creating an analogous group for people interested in investing and trading the stock market.

Let me know if you’d like me to add you.

‘You can’t time markets’ is simply an excuse that people who aren’t good at it make. God Bless them and their whining. We need them on the other side of the trade. – Keith McCullough, CEO of Hedgeye

Investment, Instinct, and Insight

The recent Bloodbath in Crypto is why I keep encouraging people to practice proper Asset Allocation and Risk Management practices.

I will now happily take some of the big recent gains I made in the stock market while all the indexes have been hitting all time highs nearly every day since the new year and rotate some of that capital into crypto now with so many coins oversold.

Remember, the winning market strategy is to buy low and sell high, but your instincts want to make you do the opposite: Chase Momentum and Panic Sell.

The mantra to succeeding in trading is Buy Dips, Sell Rips.

The mantra to succeeding as a long term investor is: Hodl & Chill.

An Update

I’ve been working 12-14 hours a day since the start of the new year with no days off to get my new company TrueSelf off the ground.

All that despite a rough common cold I picked up from the New Years all-nighter.

I just draw on Michael Jordan’s infamous flu game for inspiration.

We’re getting very close to releasing a lot of work that’s been in the pipeline.

An Online Class entitled the Personality Advantage System: Introductory Course will be coming out next week.

Essentially, it is an introduction to the 9 Types of the Enneagram.

My co-founders Katherine Fauvre and Nick Connor will be doing a Live Q&A about the Intro Course on Tuesday at 2pm live on FB, as well as on Zoom.

Our free personality test is also almost done, which will assess your Primary Enneagram Type, Tritype and Instinctual stacking, with far more accuracy than any other Enneagram test ever made.

A lot of love, blood, sweat and tears has gone into this over the last few months — and the many decades of work members of our team have put in that lead up to this.

Master Classes, Brand Identity, Coaching Programs, and full-featured web applications coming soon after.

Stay tuned.

The Gift of Near-Death Experiences

Many in Hawaii just received this message texted to phones:


It turned out to be a false alarm.

Personally, I see this error as a gift.

Steve Jobs captures why quite beautifully:

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

Unfortunately, most people who have encountered this quote kept it at arms length.

They haven’t really taken the time to internalize the reality that they could be dead soon.

That is the beauty of what those in Hawaii just experienced.

It felt unequivocally real.

If it said, “This IS a drill”, the real-ness would have vanished.

The key is to use this experience of potential impending death to transform your life and burn away all that is false and non-essential rather than contracting into fear and trauma.

I have meditated on my death for many years.

Often repeating the mantra, “I’m already dead. I’m already dead.”

And have experienced unmistakable physiological changes during and after the mantra repetition as a result.

As such, I am prepared to die at any moment.

This prepares me to not just to leave my physical body, passing into the Bardo equinanimously, but also fearlessly take on whatever challenge I must.

Additionally it enables me to do what Eric Thomas said is the most important thing required for success. “to be able at any moment to sacrifice what you are, for what you will become.”

Of course, I have the benefit of knowing that death is merely a transitory state, one that is expansive and painless if you can relax into it.

I know death is an experience my soul has been through millions of times before.

As has yours.

Even if doubt clouds your recognition.

I would consider it a bummer if I died tomorrow.

I still have much to fulfill in my karmic contract and have set large energetic waves in motion that I would like to see come to fruition.

But I would accept my fate and begin preparing for the next life like a champion readying for a new season.

So use any near death experience you have in your life to get in deeper touch with your True Nature.

And take inspiration from other’s near death experiences to move beyond your own fear of death now.
