Ask Todd Anything Non-Game — 11/18/23
(08/50) What’s your coaching to uplevel how I do my financial investing? Currently: I don’t want to spend much time on investing because it’s not something I enjoy much, but I do respect the tremendous ROI from it.
I’m at about the 15% percentile for assets for my age. All my investments follow pretty mainstream advice – in 401ks & IRAs, in broadly diversified, low-fee, passive mutual funds/ETFs that invest in the worldwide stock market—housed in Vanguard and Charles Schwab mutual funds. Any other thoughts, or advice on this area of life is welcome! 🙂

(25:50) What do you think about wrestling? Have you tried it? I’ve heard it’s great for building mental and physical strength, and it’s an all-around sport. Considering my challenge with assertiveness, do you think it could be a good practice?
(32:39) Should I write field reports for my boxing practice?
(37:10) How do you split your time between business, social circle, family, dating, exercising, etc.? I currently feel my job is taking too much energy and time from my life and I also struggle to shift between a logical work mindset and a social mindset for example when going out. Any advice on this?
(41:55) I heard that a wrestler is more likely to win against a striker than the other way around.
(42:54) You only have $100 and you had to buy some good clothes what would you buy?
(44:16) Inspired by your recent video about fighting.
(46:25) With martial arts, would you say you should build a decent amount of muscles in the gym first before starting it?
(48:45) Game/business/lifestyle related. How many more years do you see yourself creating dating products, Bootcamps, etc?
(51:33) What are your thoughts on the no porn/fap movement?
(54:00) As an ex-poker player, is there a strategy for finding tells? Do you look for them right off the bat or is it more relevant for a series of games? Other points for reading people in a business context?
(57:36) Do you have advice for good/fancy clothes for more high-end nightclubs (e.g. London Mayfair)? Any particular brand/shop you could recommend?
(59:08) Another hobby of mine is photography and videography. I frequently capture photos and videos in social settings, as well as document my own workouts. In social situations, I find it beneficial to establish connections by sharing photos, whether for dating or fostering friendships. When it comes to fitness, reviewing my workout recordings helps ensure that my form is correct. It can be challenging to assess form in real time during an active workout. Do you think this is a good practice, and do you have any suggestions to optimize this process? (besides uploading photos to dating sites obviously)
(1:00:45) Sorry, kind of a game question, but if I may ask a game-related logistics question: are you planning any live webinars in the coming weeks and months in the US or Canada? I really look forward to attending your live webinar if my travel dates to the US next month match your live webinar schedule.
(1:02:00) Could you suggest any accessories for men, like necklaces, that can help attract attention?
(1:02:50) If you were to give advice to your younger self, would you advise focusing more on investing more time into experiences vs work/career early in life?

(1:14:14) It seems like you’re familiar with the book “Rich Dad, Poor Dad.”
(1:05:02) You’ve studied improv comedy which has random characters and can get wacky. If you made a more realistic “improv for conversation” what might that look like?
(1:05:57) I’m curious about your thoughts on the future impact of AI on interpersonal communication and relationships.
(1:07:04) (Live comment)
(1:08:19) You’ve said you’re a natural introvert – do you behave more reserved around friends/family vs your outgoing game persona, or are they the same now?
(1:09:45) Soccer, chess, poker, pickup, BJJ. Any overarching lessons about mastery/life/etc. from training in all these different competitive activities?
(1:11:30) What are your thoughts about the typical corporate job? I work in banking and I feel this type of job overall negatively impacts my confidence and personality.
(1:13:15) From your travel experiences what are your favorite cities from an overall lifestyle perspective (value for money, women/dating, food, etc.)?
