I have compressed years of trials and errors, into easy to consume episodes, to take you from where you are now, to where you want to be.
Today I wanted to talk to you about hacking. So now disclaimer please, before we start, I'm not talking about hacking like cybercrime and stuff like that. Right.
I'm not even going to get into people's computers or something like that. I'm just talking about hacks. OK, so not hacking, but actual hacks.
So look, if you want my opinion on hacks, I mean, there are some people who think that all I do is just hack stuff. They're like, oh, man, you're hacking everything. Right? Because I love those things, you know, finding a way, where you will use unconventional methods to actually grow.
The first real job that I had that was working in a security company, we were protecting people's mail servers. So email and then afterwards we were actually doing the requests off the Internet.
And so my job was to stop incoming emails and incoming connections and blah, blah, blah. So you're preconditioned to hate the spammers and stuff. Right.
So obviously it's your job. I mean, a lot of them are doing shady stuff and trying to get money away from people and steal that money and stuff, which is not good.
But honestly, you have to hand it to them. I mean, these crooks, I mean, they are so resourceful. It is insane. I mean, these people are so smart. They're street smart, like some of the stuff that these hackers, you know, hackers like spammers or something or even just hackers, what they're able to do.
Their motivations are not necessarily the best. What they're doing with it is not actually the best. But the thought process of, wow, these people are really smart. Right.
Should you hack the system or not?
And something that was funny was there was always some old woman in accounting or somewhere, oh, she received this email that talked about Viagra and now she's traumatized and she's going to go on sick leave for like a month.
I mean, come on, it's just one email. In every company, there was someone who had been traumatized and made a big scandal and went to the team and started crying and shit like that. I mean, come on, it's just an e-mail. Just delete the darn email. Right.
So anyway, what I'm saying is I really admired these guys and that's why I like these things like growth hacking, where you find clever ways of getting your point across.
Don't hack people's computers, don't do anything criminal. But if there is a something that I don't know, the algorithm doesn't understand something, you can you can basically take advantage of it. Dude, I will do it any day and I encourage you to do it.
OK, so one thing is this is crucial. I really need you guys to understand this. So whatever it is that you do, you have to understand that hacks could last forever, but they're generally temporary, right? It's only a matter of time before someone figures it out or maybe some. I mean, something happens.
Too many people start using it and or there is an idiot who knows about the hack and then starts doing crazy stuff and becomes greedy. OK, so when you when you start using this, you always have to have this in the back of your mind.
And this is very important because then I see people crumble and start crying and giving up and blah, blah, blah. You just have to understand that this can go away any day. That's the mentality.
Look, it's working now. It might not work tomorrow. So while it's working, I will enjoy it. The day doesn't work anymore. Yeah, well, I knew it.
But, yeah, it sucks when this happens, but if you go in with the mentality of, look, this can stop any time you need to be ready for it and you need to accept it and you need to integrate your mind like, oh, you know, let's take advantage of that while it's there.
