CONCEPT > Does extremely provocative work? Borat vs. Paul Logan


 

“All that matters is results, but you have to have the style that works for you” – J20.02.01

CONCEPT: At what point does being provocative work for good promotion and at what point do the haters help more than hurt?  My motto is “Say Provocative statements that intelligent people argue about fast without dotting your I’s and crossing your T’s. As life is all about fun and results!”

Paul Logan (almost everything = million likes or views), Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat), and many others show that provocative works even in the extream.

PAUL LOGAN CASE STUDY:

FULL SONG: The Fall Of Jake Paul (Official Video) FEAT. Why Don’t We= 246,879,596 views made Jul 9, 2017, with 590,403 Comments & 3.5 million likes based on  Logan Paul’s 20.2M subscribers!  Logan Paul has views, but how does he make his money? Does he have bots?  Who is his fan base?  Can he move to higher-paying activities?  My kids have one view (14 & 16-year-old), but what is the true story behind Logan Paul?

BOTTOMLINE: Sacha Baron Cohen (aka Borat) is HNWI with more than $100 million due to his media success, while Logan Paul is pegged at little over $10 million at the age of 24 year old.  YouTube is great, but stick to the movies and TV should you want to make the big bucks!

Developing Concepts on extream provocative activities and  “Benevolent Dictators” thanks to Sacha Baron Cohen’s movie!

7. Invest In Real Estate

There are lots of strategies, but a 1031 exchange in real estate allows you to defer paying capital gains taxes on an investment property when it is sold. Almost all high-net-worth individuals have investments in real estate and the 1031 exchange is one of the key tools. – JD Morris, Red Hook Capital
