Everyone believes their own opinion. Fact based. Or not. We're all (somehow) political "experts." But the truth no one really knows anything. It's all speculation. But you put your opinion to the test if you get skin in the game. Which is possible now thanks to John Phillips who co-founded the site PredictIt.org. I go on there to place bets on everything from how many tweets Trump is going to make on a particular day or around a specific news event to who will win the primary. And who will win the election.
The site is great because it lets you see how right you really are. And you can make real wealth if you’re right. It’s not just betting. It’s more like a stock market. You want to buy low. And sell high. So I asked John on the podcast if he’s ever seen people make $50,000 on the site. He didn’t flinch, “Oh yeah. People have quit their jobs.”
I want to help people understand what's happening in the world right now. We're all scared. But we don't have to be. Let's get the information. And go from there.
I called up John Hopkin's Dr. Marty Makary to get straight information on coronavirus.
He answered all my questions (many of which I get from you). So give it a listen.
And you'll start to feel (hopefully) more calm and capable. Here are the links
