In the latest Danger & Play Podcast I talk about the release date of Gorilla Mindset, why young people have trouble finding mentors, and whether girls are allowed to read Danger & Play (a question that is asked at least once a week by women.) I also talk about haters and the type of nonsense you’ll deal with once your website or YouTube channel blows up.
The Danger & Play podcast is sponsored by Juice Power.
When is Gorilla Mindset coming?
- I am making a big change in my life. Once that change has occurred, Gorilla Mindset will be released.
- How much is it going to cost?
- Will it be available on Kindle, in paperback, and on e-Junkie?
How do you build up a successful website, podcast, or YouTube?
- Content, content, content.
- When people find your website, you want them to stay. If you don’t have any content, they will forget about you.
- Start now and improve as you go.
- You website/podcast/YouTube channel probably isn’t very good. That shouldn’t stop you.
- Today’s content will suck compared to where you will be in 5 years. That is the natural process of growth and development.
Why don’t more established people mentor you or answer your emails?
- Do ask for advice and then not follow it?
- You don’t have to blindly follow advice, but busy people have better things to do than argue with you all day.
- A lot of people ask for advice as a way to procrastinate.
- Others ask for advice and only follow the advice that meets their confirmation bias.
- You shouldn’t take it personally when people don’t answer your emails. You are not entitled to anyone’s time or attention. A response is a gift from the person.
How much hate do you get online?
- If you build a successful website, you will receive hate every day.
- Roosh talks about the pros and cons of e-fame.
- If haters bother you, you are not cut out for the Internet.
- The bigger you get, the more haters you will have.
- You will eventually have entire websites devoted to stalking your every move.
- You can’t get emotional about haters and back stabbers.
- “Charge it to the game,” has to become your mantra.
Are women allowed at Danger & Play?
- 20% of D&P readers are female.
- When women enter a male space, the culture changes.
- Men often try tone policing websites when they learn women are commenting.
- D&P commenters are civil for the most part, so talking about hurt feelings is not helpful or relevant to the discussion
- Women often act as if they have the power to speak on behalf of all women: “As a woman, I can say this article is true.”
- No person represents his gender, race, or any other group.
