The Zero Mindset

The ZERO Mindset was created for those that are starting or thinking of starting a new idea, chapter, or business in their life from the ground floor, or from zero. This book delivers great detail on building a mindset and strategy that will best prepare someone to start something new and fresh, from zero.

In order to do this, Ben believes in deprogramming some of the social rules we have been taught that may be getting in the way of acting. The use of “zero” in this book is to represent the ultimate starting point as well as a reflection of the many scenarios of zeros one will face on your climb up zero finances, zero connections, zero access, and zero experience.

Ben tells his story and how it helped form his two-pronged approach, mindset strategy, and business strategy, to going from zero to something special.

Biden Announces His Broadband Plan—and ISPs Will Hate It

President Biden’s plan to connect all Americans with high-speed broadband includes proposals to boost competition, build more publicly owned networks, lower prices, and prioritize “future-proof” networks instead of ones that would quickly become outdated. In other words, the plan includes some of the broadband industry’s least-favorite ideas and is sure to meet fierce resistance from cable and telecom lobby groups and Republicans. Biden’s $100 billion broadband proposal is part of the American Jobs Plan described by the White House in a fact sheet released Wednesday. The broadband details released so far are a bit vague, and the plan could be changed …

It’s 2019, and Neumann, the company’s charismatic founder and then-CEO, is recording a video for WeWork’s roadshow, the traditional presentations executives make to investors as they prepare a company to go public. Flatulence is not the only issue for Neumann. He struggles to read the teleprompter. He demands silence from everyone in the room, insisting that he would get the script right if everyone could just shut up. It’s this kind of archival footage that makes WeWork: Or The Making and Breaking of a $47 …

Help! Should I Tell My Colleagues I’m on the Spectrum?

Dear OOO,Is it worth trying to explain to colleagues that my bluntness stems from being on the spectrum? Or just acknowledge that my approach isn’t everyone’s cup of tea and just go from there?—AnonymousI sometimes talk to young journalists trying to choose between two jobs. They talk to me about the difference in workload, prestige, paths for advancement, and a million other pros and cons. And more than half the time, I’d say, they’re surprised by my first question, which has nothing to do with any of the factors they mentioned: “Which group of people do …

Polish banks sweat over Swiss franc ruling

Like other Central and Eastern Europeans, thousands of Poles took out mortgages in Swiss francs in the 2000s to take advantage of low interest rates in Switzerland. In 2008, the mortgages taken out in zlotys had an average annual interest rate of 8.7%, while similar Swiss franc-denominated loans issued by local banks had an average interest rate of 4.4%.  But many borrowers saw their installments spike dramatically with the Swiss franc almost doubling in value against the złoty since the 2008 financial crisis and in particular after the Swiss franc was depegged from the euro in 2015. Poland is the last country in Europe …
