    Let's not talk about celebrity and those well known people. My fav IM is Jeremy Schoemaker, I didn't know he already have something big on hand before he started shoemoney.com.

    so, who inspired you the most?

    Hi

    Well, for now.... I am following some shitty advices from Gary Vaynerchuk. His YouTube channel and books are amazing.

    Benjamin Graham. He is in no way related to IM but his ideas about money management and investments are both genius and simple and can be implemented beyond their initial intent (he dealt with equities way before the digital age). I would greatly encourage anyone who hasn't already read his book "The Intelligent Investor" to do so. He has some very interesting ideas about risk, reward and peace of mind that should be of interest to anyone, period. It's currently $13 on amazon and it is the single best investment you will ever make and the closest thing we'll ever get to a "real" guide to accumulating wealth.

    Arthur Guinness, not only do they brew a great stout, but he signed the lease on the St James gate brewery and made the deal of all deals. Originally leased in 1759 to Arthur Guinness at IRĀ£45 (Irish pounds) per year for 9,000 years.

    He paid well over the odds at first, but it's one of the most amazing deals ever done.

    His book was more inspiring to me and am very motivated by his words.

    My mom.

    She has had a business going on the side of her 9-5 for as long as I've been alive. She's a real hustler, and she's the reason I wanted to own my own business in the first place.

    Whatever life throws at her financially, she makes it work. I wanna be like her when I grow up.

    Right now she makes baby clothes and blankets but she wants to switch to making jewelry and selling it on Etsy. She's done everything from running a clothing shop out of our living room to catering.

    She's amazing.

    And although I am 99.9% sarcastic, I have my moments.

    To be honest. I don't know if the guy does black hat, but he knows SEO, marketing & social media (He made his own company).

    The guy is a hustler like us. He started with their Wine family business, and tried a lot of things to get more sales.
    Please, take a look a this video and don't waste your time:

    Im inspired by those who rank sites and make money off of them, as they give me motivation in ranking my own sites and banking off of them.
