    This is for everyone who is over 21 years old.
    If you can go back in time and meet your self when you were 20, turning 21... or 18, or 17, or whichever... what would you tell yourself? Advice, tips, etc? Doesn't have to be blackhat related. It could be something from entrepreneurship, life lessons, etc.

    I definitely would have gone to more parties and relaxed much more.

    So I guess if I could go back in time, I'd give my younger self some cash and a big slap.

    I would have worked a lot more and I think I would have said to myself: "QUIT SCHOOL NOW!"

    I would work with myself in the past. Then I would re-create my current business, but in the past. By the time that "time" caught up with me in present day, I'd be much more wealthy.

    I feel that everything I have been through, including all of the bullshit and
    mistakes, was a learning process. I have no regrets at all. Often, when you
    look back at incidents that may have seemed like they were devastating at
    the time, you can see that there was a lesson to be learned from them.

    As Nietzsche said, "That which does not kill me, makes me stronger."
