A great read by Peter Thiel

"All the hard work at Harvard is done by the admissions officers who anoint an already-proven hypercompetitive elite. If that weren’t true — if superior instruction could explain the value of college — then why not franchise the Ivy League? Why not let more students benefit? It will never happen because the top U.S. colleges draw their mystique from zero-sum competition.

...

Of course, you can’t become successful just by dropping out of college. But you can’t become successful just by going to college, either, or by following any formula. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg aren’t famous because of the similar ways in which they left school. We know their names because of what each of them did differently from everybody else.

...

A Reformation is coming, and its message will be the same as it was 500 years ago: Don’t outsource your future to a big institution. You need to figure it out for yourself."

#education #unschool  
It’s time to start questioning whether college is truly the only option for everyone.

Sometime I think my craziness makes me more productive.

I should  blog about this topic. " I am insanely crazy and why you should too."

Success is when you can spend 90 percent of your time doing the things you want to do and only 10 percent doing things you have to do. Most people’s lives are just the opposite. - SCOTT SPANGLER
http://hbs1963.com/wisdom/happiness-success/
If you knew then what you know now, would you have changed your definition of what success is and what makes you happy? Since the first issue of the The New Yorker hit the newsstands on February 21, 1925, the magazine's cartoonists have tackled (and ridiculed) the meaning of life and happiness ...

I think that this quote is true too.

Mark Suster blog is one of the few blogs that I read. ( The others are James Altucher, Oliver Emberton, Noah Kagan, Seth Godin and David Jaxon.) Another great read.

I avoid read mainstream news at all cost. I can't avoid them 100% because I need to follow them for the benefits of clients. I do skim over all the headlines here and there. But if one day I don't have to manage content directly and need to keep up with all the trends/news, I would avoid them 100%.

The news is for the 99%. It is there to create fear and conflicts. It is way to negative for my taste. 

I haven't followed the Uber "scandals". From all the headlines, it looks negative. I have ALWAYS talked to cab drivers, including Uber. I like learning about other people's lives. I have to agree with Mark. I have only heard positive things from drivers. Uber offers them a new way to earn extra income. That is the only story I need to know. 

No company is totally good or bad. 

Don't forget evil is the new good. You cannot be a change without upseting people.

Keep lying, cheating, stealing and killing.

Yesterday I had my first serious talk at @TEDxRU   front of 350+ people and the internet. I have done many small seminar but I have never talked in front of so many people.  For an introvert like me, that was scary. But sometime I need to learn to kill my fear, lie to myself, unlearn and accept the a new experience. 

We all need to push ourselves into danger to experience greatness.
Success is never safe.

"Dear Dad, my whole life, I've been told I was destined for greatness based solely on the virtue of my name. I was taught sacrifice was for the foolish. Survival was all that mattered. But now I find myself at a crossroads, and I must decide what I believe to be true. There is no such thing as destiny. Legacies must be earned by the choices we make. I now know that we write our own endings, and we can either choose to hide as villains or live as heroes." - Daniel Grayson

This quote sums up my life.

I don't believe in love at first sight but I have to change my mind after reading this guy's blog. Love when people do real talk. +Austen Allred  is awesome. We need more people like this. I have been saying the things for months.

Austin is a must follow. 

RULES OF GROWTH
No one really cares about your product
No one really cares about you
Activity on the Internet is mostly mindless
We are all subject to base desires
That means you, too
No one remembers what they read
Everyone remembers how they feel
The marketing tactics people complain about are the ones that work
Everyone clicks on ads
Nobody thinks they click on ads
Affiliates can not be trusted
Proxies solve any scaling problem
Everything in this world runs according to a system
Every system can be beat
On the Internet, no one knows you're a dog
People generally follow back
Good marketers cheat
Great marketers win
"Organic growth" is almost always a lie
The greatest companies have all grown on the backs of spam
Yes, all of them
People hate problems more than they like solutions
All press is good press
Dopamine

Sharing Is Caring 

Hi, I need to ask you all  for a small favor. I am helping this charity's fundraising campaign. #EboOverEbola

http://igg.me/at/EduOverEbola/x/9100141

Rumie is raising money to send low cost tablets to children who are secondary victims of Ebola in Liberia.

-1.4 million children have been out of school for over 4 months, and we don’t know when they’ll be back in school.
-Each tablet costs $50 but has $5000 worth of quality educational content. 
-One tablet impacts the learning of ten children. 

100% of the money will go to the cause. Their private donors cover all the expenses. 

They are doing a Thunderclap for ppl to donate tweet and fb status. 

However, if we don't hit 100 supporters. The campaign will die, nothing will be sent out.

https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/19405-education-over-ebola

Can you donate Facebook status/tweet/both? It would help Rumie a lot. It is truly a great cause.

If you want to help more, you can donate here -> every dollar counts. 
http://igg.me/at/EduOverEbola/x/9100141

P.S. I know a lot of you are not on FB/Twitter. It wasn't an option. Feel free to share the message manually if you are interested to help :)

Introduction

Hi, I’m CamMi Pham ( @cammipham). I am a digital strategist/social media marketing consultant by day, and personal development blogger by night. I am  the host of  relationship building chat (#RBchat – Tuesday at 9 pm ET) and User Generated Content Marketing Chat (#UGCchat – Thursday at 2 pm ET).

You can connect with me on TwitterFacebookGoogle+ , LinkedinQuora or drop me an email anytime contact@cammipham.com.

If you want to know more about me, this is my life story.

I was born into old money, grew up with the new money, and have no money.

 

That line pretty much sums up my life.

I was born into a family that used to have everything: fame, power and wealth , but at the wrong time. We had the old money status without the benefit. But if I can go back in time, I wouldn’t change a thing. I am proud being a member of this family, rich or poor. People can take away almost everything my ancestor left. Fame can fade. Power can move from one hand to another. Wealth can be stolen. But they left knowledge and class. They are in our blood, and will always be there.

After US lifted the trade embargo against Vietnam, my parents worked hard to rebuild the legacy. I was very lucky to grew up among the elite. I went to the best school, ate the best food, wore the best clothes. Everybody were nouveau riche because before that nobody had money. At that time I thought life was good. I was wrong.

Like any perfect fairy tale story, it did not last long. My father was falsely accused of a crime he did not commit. It didn’t take long for his business to fall apart. Building a business in Vietnam is like having a beautiful sand castle, it never lasts.  Many years later, my father won the law suit but he lost everything. Everyone who used to be friends and family acted like they didn’t even know us.

When you have money, your friends know who you are. When you have no money, you know who your friends are.

 

My mother wanted to go back to the Western world and rebuild our lives. My father wanted to rebuild his legacy where he lost it. Just like a famous Vietnamese legendmy mother took my litter sister and me to the North, Canada where her family lives; my father took $1000 to the South and rebuilt his businesses.

“The illiterate of the twenty-first century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.” ~ Alvin Toffler 

And today I am a little princess-turned-pauper who is working hard to build her own legacy with  two hands and a brain. I had a very interesting childhood which made me who I am today. I have learned a lot of things then learn to unlearn them. That is life.

From all my experience, I learned 3 lessons

  1. The old money taught me “Making money is hard but keeping money is harder“ It is important to be financial independent because anything can happen tomorrow. Always live below your mean. Looking rich doesn’t mean you are rich. You can have the money but you may not have the education to manage wealth and maintain stabilities.
  2. The new money taught me “Life is too short to blend in.” It is easier to play safe and blend in, but great risk comes with great return.
  3. The no money taught me “We need a balance in life” Nothing is totally right or wrong. If you are not happy when you have no money, you won’t be happy  when you have everything.  Happiness is found within yourself.
