Money and the Power
For those of us that happen to have noticed, last week rapper 50 cent launched his new reality show on MTV called The Money and the Power. It is something similar to "The Apprentice" and although after watching it I believe most of the participants are moronic at best and would be eaten alive in the business world, I still see the value of learning lessons from 50. Anyone that doubts the man's ability to make money should only look at where he started and where he is now. Personally, I wonder how much longer it will be before Richard Branson sees the value of this type of show and stars in one himself. That would be the ultimate in reality shows in my eyes. Either way, no matter who your personal money making guru is, this show is entertaining and there are lessons to be learned but when you break all these shows down, the one rule that remains constant is that to be successful you have to believe in yourself first and you have to put in the work, nothing comes easy or is given to you but with the right frame of mind, focus and keeping your eyes on the goal, anyone can be a success.
