The Ladders of Wealth Creation



  • Ladder 1 is how most people make their living—trading time for money; this ladder gives you potential to increase your wealth over time, but you’ll eventually hit a cap.
  • Ladder 2 is when you have your own business; you can charge by the hour, per project, and even create an agency model where you’re hiring a team.
  • Ladder 3 is when you have a productized service.
  • Ladder 4 is when you sell products—digital or physical products, or software.

Mel Robbins talks to Dr. Adam Alter about color theory.

Color Theory In Your Wardrobe 



  • Studies have shown that if you wear red, you feel stronger and more dominant, and are perceived as more dominant by others as well (great color to wear during negotiations!).
  • Blues and greens are calming colors, often associated with nature scenes.
  • Wearing white can give off a vibe of freshness and clarity, making it an excellent choice for presentations or interviews where you want to appear organized and trustworthy.
  • Black is often linked with authority, elegance, and sophistication.
  • Yellow is often associated with happiness, positivity, and energy; wearing it can make you feel more cheerful and confident.
