    Having worked in the corporate world for over 15 years, I have seen all the Cliches' "No I in team" "thinking outside the box" "time management" "do more with less" "take it to the next level" bla bla bla.... really drives me crazy.

    After leaving the mind numbing office slaves I realize it is just the same on the other side, possibly even worse with cliches "rank and bank" "rinse and repeat" "scale up" "my journey" "content is king" " SEO is dead"

    I makes me feel dizzy and ill just writing them down. Together we can eliminate this disease.

    My favorite is "I got 16 clicks and 0 conversions, they're shaving"

    You got the first one that came to mind, which for me "scale it up". Really, you think the guy isn't working on that?

    Semi-cliche is the term "passive income". Yeah, it might be somewhat passive if you bust your ass for a year or just have an amazing idea, but most of the time it is not.

    Yes corporate America becomes incredibly fixated on weird things like time management and "do more with less". A large group of men who sacrifice their health to make their company billions and walk away with only 6 figures (most of them.) A lot of it definitely comes off as corny. I shouldn't hate to hard though. I might end up in the corporate rat race one day.

    I do agree with thinking outside of the box though. It's crucial to surviving in any industry.

    When you search for an answer on Google and can't find a solution then is time to find it yourself. It's a gold mine. Those cliches are overused, the true haven't been discovered!

    "Good work OP, now scale up" is probably the dumbest.

    "The money is in the list" and "golden nuggets" are some pet peeves of mine.

    edit: for me "passive income" means more the fact that one might actually make money while they sleep in comparison to a 9-5 job where they get paid on the clock.

    Each community had his own "never give up", "no {br|p}ain no gain"...
    "Think outside the box" it's probably the worst ever! plus it's not at all outside the box to say "outside the box"

    In most cases this kind of expression is used by guy who start thread like "I'm a total noob but so genius outside the box mind I will make $30k month in 90 days from 0"

    Also that makes me crazy, what about this kind of pics?

    I don't like the threads in the Marketplace section beiing spammed with "Can I see some samples please".

    They should integrate an sample-button.

    @Jaydee1988 I was looking through a particular thread in the marketplace the other night, over 60 pages... Look for buyer reviews. I think i found 2 in the entire thread and PAGES of that exact phrase
    "Pm me sample please" "Can i get a sample" good lord! just put the sample in the Sales page ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
