“The Swashbuckling Adventures of The Renowned C-Suite Profiteer Hell-Bent On The Fast Plundering Of The Gigantic Profits & Treasures Hidden In Plain Sight”
Overt (not covert) industrial espionage secrets finally revealed
that focus on “the bloody-obvious”
that are typically unseen as they lie
smack bang in the middle of many an executive blind spot!
“What is this crazy #!*? rant (blog) all about anyway?” you ask.
And so you should.
Well, it was inspired by my father in his later years. He used to say to me “They don’t say health and wealth in that order for no reason you know.” And then look at me with one eyebrow raised to make sure I got what he was saying. A small smile and an acknowlegemet nod was usually my typcial response to his mentoring…with a rolling of the eyes, as you can imagine. A counter response wink bounced back from him. What more does a son really want from his father hey? Life hey?
Now, in particular, this rant (blog) is squarely aimed at you if you are one of…
1) Rebellious Yet Highly Successful Business Maverick

5) Lobbying Leader That Benefactors Take Seriously
Lobbying Leader That Benefactors Take Seriously – the Executive who understands the importance of the causes and the interests he is representing, and is excited about moving on up to a position that provides greater perspective, and matching influence of course.

- want to keep regulators on side and at bay
- want to keep the hungry wolves from the door
- want to keep the barbarous enemy @ the gate or
- want to ensure your family is destined to be a dynasty.
In particular, it is aimed at you if
the following description describes where you’ve been in life so far,
where you are now, and where you want to be real soon…
YOU’VE worked hard in your 20s with
the ‘common’ strategies & tools
given by college professors,
ONLY TO find yourself forever
banging your head against brick walls &
hitting glass-ceilings. WITH lots of blood, sweat and tears.
LUCKILY YOU finally got around to
consuming and internalizing
the success classics [AOW, TGR, TSS, MTB, 7H]
in your 30s,
AND FOUND the strength within to work the
proven success strategies
in your 40s,
LIKELY WITH many sleepless nights…up early to invest your
own blood & sweat…and perhaps some tears…happily invested for it was all for a worthy cause.
TO FINALLY make it to the top
in your 50s.
BUT NOW as you head towards your 60s,
You are beginning to realize that
you face the biggest challenge of your life,
ONE THAT IF NOT conquered
will have you living out your golden years,
your 70s, 80s, and 90s,
UNNECESSARILY WITH lots of blood, sweat and tears!
AND SO NOW WHAT YOU REALLY WANT,
what you really need,
are high speed business [>>] tactics,
tools, templates, triggers and tricks
that will keep you On Top Forever, right?
Now, you’re probably here, because you have heard that I can give these very things…these things that you want oh so very much.
Now, just because I can give you these…
…because I am in the very enviable situation of actually knowing them (as I stumbled across an amazing secret in my early 20s and have actually lived them for some 25+ years now)…
…AND as I will likely give them to you…
…because I believe that Entrepreneurial Executives and Executive Entrepreneurs are really the ones that can make this world of ours prosper…
…it doesn’t mean I will…for I will only share them if you’re serious and don’t waste my time.
Of note, when describing the super profit secret shortcuts and high speed turbo boosters that you pick up to your inner circle of friends and family, you’ll likely say something like…this is the kind of thing that other entrepreneurial executives have said in the past…
“IT WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR IGNITING THE BIGGEST BUSINESS REVOLUTION OF ALL TIME”
“The Speed Mindset That Makes Maverick Millionaires, Bodacious Billionaires”
“Prepare to be known as a Doctor of Harsh Reality Too!”
“The Quickest Way To Add 2-3 Zeros To Your Paycheck”
“The Pirate DNA That Blackbeard Would Covert”
“Finally…The Business DNA Super Profit Secret Shortcuts”
“Legal Loophole Engineering For Super Serious Executives”
“The Rosetta Stone of Law”
“The Babel Fish of Business”
“With this, you’ll be the Head Professor of the School of Hard Knocks in no time at all.”
“The Essential Backbone To Our Environmental Recovery”
“The Legalese Lightsaber of a Jurisdictional Jedi knight”
“It’s Legal DNA for Legal Eagles!”
“You will find yourself in a transcendent state of Legal Nirvana”
“If you want to move from Frustration To Freedom, you’ve found your speed tools”.
“If you have a Need For Speed, you’ve found your high speed turbo boosters”.
“If you truly want to be an Industry Peak Performer, the speed tactics, templates and tools here within are just what you’ve been looking for”.
“If you want to quickly bump up your pay check zeros from 6-TO-7, you’ve picked up the right toolkit”.
“More like, 7-TO-8 ZEROs I say”.
“I’ll up that to the ultimate 8-TO-9 ZEROs SYSTEM”.
“It’s the ultimate Executive Fast Track, Boardroom Fast Track, Venture Capitalist Fast Track – Take Your Pick”.
“The Technical Specification Shangri-La”
“The Executive’s Excalibur”
“Don’t lie with the old boardroom buzzards; soar with the new legal eagles!”
“The Fastest Money Making Machine Ever Invented By Mankind That Will Never Be Surpassed…That Even Surfers, Gangsters, Bankers and Emperors Will Covertly Covet!”
My favorite being,
“Finally…The Business DNA Super Profit Secret Shortcuts”…
as you will no doubt work out as you travel along with us.
It is also the one that has gelled fastest with executives over the years…interesting hey?
And so by default, this is what I usually start with when Executives corral me a the back of the room after an Executive Keynote presentation at a business, government and defense conferences I attend these days.
Now of note, only one rule here…
“No topic is taboo, especially the taboo topics”
Also, so you know what you’re getting here, my goal here with this rant (blog) is…
IS NOT for or against anything or anyone,
but about everything!
For, it’s from this point that the truth can be seen, right?
Now, as we are all biased in someway,
whether we want to be or not, want to believe it or not (including me)
there will obviously be some bias here and there – it comes with the territory.
But if you can live with this
(and call me out on any accidental slips and hound me until I address them)
well then you are going to get the goods…the secrets shortcuts, the high speed turbo boosters which will have you quickly skyrocketing to success – and beyond.
Beware – This Rant is not designed for general rank-and-file run-of-the-mill executives, although they too would greatly benefit. Why? Well quite frankly, I have found that very few of them are as serious as their key investors and stakeholders need them to be. And as I’m primed to help only the serious ones, the silly ones rarely make it through the qualifying rounds.
Beware #2: This Rant is not designed for executives who are happy with their slow stodgy success strategies….strategies handed down by second-rate college professors some 30 years ago. It is not for those who don’t know how fast as they need to be with their business, government and defense dealings (& documents)…such as these Key Executive Documents:
- [KED 1] Policies
- [KED 2] Standard Operating Procedures (SOP)
- [KED 3] Regulations
- [KED 4] Government Guidelines
- [KED 5] Contracts
- [KED 6] Purchase Orders
- [KED 7] Service Level Agreements (SLAs)
- [KED 8] Technical Specifications
- [KED 9] Insurance Policies
- [KED 10] Industry Codes
It is not for those who don’t understand the importance of being as fast as their ruthless relentless rivals. It is however, for those who know this, but who also have their gaze firmly fixed on being faster than them.
You see, my stuff is super-serious, and thus for truly-serious executives only. With this in mind, you can see why most cookie-cut executives just don’t make the grade and fall off quite quickly…leaving them to rely on the same old pathetic excuses that have hemmed them into a life of mediocrity.
New quotes and commentary are added regularly, so check back often to get the c-suite success insights and inspiration you’ve been looking for. Super Profit Secret Shortcuts [SPSS] that greatly improve your life and make you much-much-much happier…for ever and a day.
Now, as a quick start, you might like to check out the quotable quotes by William A. Ward, Benjamin Franklin, Gandhi and Henry Ford. The in the top right hand corner can help you quickly find these and many more.
Oh and if you have a favorite quote, success story, high speed resource tactic or tool you’d like to share, please contact me and let me know. I’ll post it here for others to enjoy should it align with our cause, to submit, just click here…>
With That, Good hunting,
Galactic Surfer Nate #!*?
In case you have somehow missed who I am…I’m the one who is…
…solely fixated on pushing the boundaries of what’s really possible in the C-Suites of the world…with recently revealed Super Profit Secret Shortcuts [SPSS] and high speed turbo boosters proven to keep Fortune 500 Executive types and The 9 Biz Supermen Types On Top Forever ^>
In particular, focused on finding and mining speed tactics, tools, templates, triggers and tricks that help executives realize ‘industry proven success strategies’ fast…faster…as fast as their ruthless, relentless rivals…and eventually, faster than.
(P.S. I am the one who is also happy letting the masses of cookie-cut run-of-the-mill slow-to-success “middle management” professionals spout advice on what is required to toe-the-line with their mainly-mindless management strategies…slow-to-success strategies…strategies that often only lead one to a life of blood, sweat and tears. The choice is simple: either take the long-hard-slow way or take the secret shortcuts, get there first and exploit the opportunity now up your sleeve.)
“Why the ‘galactic surfer’ reference?” you ask. Well, simply really. I am passionate about the sport of surfing. Riding leading-tech revolutionary new designs in particular. It keeps me healthy and ‘sane’…which is particular important considering the super-heavy business, government and defense thinking and work I regularly find myself involved in. Now, the serendipitous benefit of having daylight sport passion, is that going to work early or staying late is not conducive to daily surfing. And as such, it mandated the finding shortcuts and high speed turbo boosters. This search was a natural and regular mission. That’s why I put together my special collection of high speed business tactics, tools, templates, triggers and tricks. Now, as surfing in the dark at night is extremely difficult…nigh on impossible actually…I had and have no choice but to get my work done fast…faster than my rivals…so I could get out in time for a sunset surf session with my family and friends. Passionate golfers understand this I’m sure…hard to play golf in the dark…probably more so than tennis players and footballers, who can play under night lights. Oh, and the ‘galactic’ par of the reference, well that’s a story and a half. And as such you will have to hang around to get that one. It’s worthwhile I assure you. Instructional for Entrepreneurial Executives and Executive Entrepreneurs #!*?
SIDE NOTE: I’m really quite happy letting the masses of cookie-cut “middle management” gurus spout advice on what is required to align with insane, slow and stodgy success strategies…strategies that keep one stuck-in-a-rut…strategies that inevitably lead one to blood, sweat and tears. The choice is simple: either take long hard slow way or take the super profit secret shortcuts, get there first and exploit the opportunity now up your sleeve.
And remember now,
“If I’m slow, I’m going to miss out on the sunset surf with my family and friends.
If you’re slow, you’re going to miss out on the ___________ (fill in the blank).
So, we have no choice but to be faster than our ruthless relentless rivals, right?”
p.s. It will be a smart move to bookmark this page for future reference and share it with your inner circle of trusted friends and family so they are on your team, helping you on your skyrocketing journey to super-stardom.
