  • - The Monday rant video was reverse engineered.

  • I just knew that people would want to watch it.

  • And that's what I also think is going to happen here.

  • Basically I want this film to give you the audacity

  • to actually go out and do it.

  • You're 52 years old and it's not being talked about

  • enough that hey man, hey gal, it's not over.

  • If you want it so bad, if it's in you,

  • maybe it's not time to take up golf or

  • pack it in, maybe it's time to actually triple down

  • and really focus on your 7 P.M. to 2 in the morning.

  • There's so many people that truly are

  • good entrepreneurs or have entrepreneurial DNA

  • but they just weren't lucky enough to be born during an

  • era that that seemed practical.

  • It's hard for somebody who's for 30 years gone

  • a certain blueprint to understand that this

  • is that realistic and they feel like it's a young man's sport

  • and it's just not. Like, it's just not.

  • If you've got the right DNA and you're a 72 year old female

  • you have just a good as an at-bat as a 27 year old dude.

  • But you've been trained and story told to and positioned

  • and lived in a 50 year matter that

  • doesn't feel like this thing in here is

  • a practical way to build that but it is.

  • The entrepreneurship is not predicated on

  • taking away from your family.

  • Entrepreneurship is taking away from everything else.

  • So stop making excuses,

  • "Oh these millenial kids are so entitled."

  • "Oh, these kids didn't have to work as hard as we did."

  • Nobody cares if you're 40, 70, 90 alien, female, male, minority.

  • The market will accept your victories

  • if you're good enough to have a victory.

  • And I believe, more than ever, that if you're a 49 year old

  • housewife with two kids because of this phone you've got more

  • opportunities to create something for yourselves.

  • Please my friends, do not allow just the 18 and 14 and

  • 22 year olds to grab at this pie that is so available to

  • all of us regardless of our age.

  • We're gonna live longer. The opportunity is real.

  • The 58-year-old right now that's watching this

  • you'll live another 40 years.

  • 40 years of being able to do

  • something you love is a big deal.

  • Start putting in the work, start recognizing this isn't

  • just a young person's game.

  • Start representing the people that actually

  • put in the work, the gray hairs that context that knowledge.

  • Start deploying that. Educate yourself on the new world.

  • Yes, you didn't grow up with Instagram.

  • You didn't grow up driving and you learned that.

  • Stop making excuses,

  • start getting educated in the actual world and

  • start opening up the opportunities.

  • In my true opinion, you are actually more likely

  • to be successful in building a company,

  • at 45, 50 today than the 18-year-olds that are coming out

  • because there's a naiveté, a lack of experience.

  • You have experience, you have experience.

  • Like, that's a real thing.

  • Cool, youth and excitement is great,

  • you have actual business experience.

  • Plenty amount of talent.

  • There's plenty amount of talent.

  • And there's a ton of fire and bravado

  • and there's a confidence.

  • There's a confidence that youth provides.

  • The difference between me and so many of you is

  • I've put in the god damn work to learn where

  • people's attention now is and I'm deploying

  • myself through there.

  • Many of you have drawn a line in the sand and

  • say I'm not downloading Snapchat.

  • I'm not downloading Instagram.

  • That, my friends, is going to allow you to lose.

  • This video is made for one reason:

  • I want it to be the calling card, the seed of the explosion

  • of the 40 to 80-year-old entrepreneur in our society.

  • The fire that I see in the eyes of the 19, 20, 25-year-old

  • that feels that they're entitled to this and

  • then on the flip side the diminishing just a little

  • bit of ashes, a little smoke left in that same entrepreneur

  • when they were 22 at 46 when practicality and family dynamics

  • and the history and the market tearing down and the lack

  • of that same opportunity has just dwindled down

  • to a moment where they don't believe

  • that they've got that shot.

  • I'm here to tell you you absolutely do.

  • There are absolutely a ton of entrepreneurs that started

  • their companies in their 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s

  • when it was difficult to do such a thing.

  • Sidney Frank who created Grey Goose didn't invent

  • his big thing until his 70s.

  • And so I'm desperate, I'm desperate to give you

  • a springboard to say you know what

  • instead of watching "House of Cards" seasons,

  • instead of trying to go to ball games or

  • things of that nature, yeah, I do have

  • 7PM to 2 in the morning Monday through Friday.

  • Heck, for a lot of you the kids are out of the house.

  • I mean let's get into practicality,

  • if the late 40s, 50s, 60-year-olds that are watching

  • this rant the kids are out of the house.

  • Yeah, you could pick up golf or you can finally start that

  • candle company because you put pretty pictures

  • of candles on Instagram and it happens.

  • Learn the craft.

  • Figure out the opportunity at hand,

  • go attack it. You only live once.

  • When you're 90 to 100-years-old and you're regretting that you

  • never built this business and you let this era pass

  • this moment where there's so much

  • entrepreneurial upside, you'll regret it and

  • regret is the worst.

  • That's what it is. At least the way I see it.

  • I got home at midnight last night.

  • And every fucking night. It's just real.

  • I don't have to.

  • I don't know, I think there's a real opportunity to

  • inspire a generation that so deserves it.

  • I almost feel like being 40,

  • I feel like I'm caught right in the middle.

  • I have so much empathy for, I recognize how insane

  • I had to be to...

  • You can't even imagine how not practical being an

  • entrepreneur was when I was half your age.

  • In school, a 15 year old now in school that's getting Ds but

  • is like selling shit on the internet, everyone's like,

  • "Oh, you're the next Mark Zuckerburg."

  • Mine was like, "Oh, you're the next piece of shit."

  • You know? It's so insanely different.

  • So I have a lot of empathy for people that

  • I don't know if they recognize how real it is.

  • (calm music)
