Great Post - I have similar thoughts in regards to how to become a business person not an employee. I don't get how one would start to flip real estate as that's something professionals have been doing - why would there be alpha for a new guy?

and similar on starting a business. How did your friend find these South American companies to invest in?

Some people have it, others dont.

Your entrepreneurial friend has probably always had business ideas. You can ask him.

You can learn, but it wont happen quickly.

Focus on your strengths bruh.

EDIT: to answer your question - I’ve always been a business savvy person and I’ve had B2C business ideas as early as 12. Never had capital.

Some people are more naturally inclined to "get it" early on, it's like they're born with it. Others (like myself) have to force myself to think that way, it takes time but can be done. Don't beat yourself up over this, learn to take small steps and over time it'll add up and you'll see the dots connecting. For you, it seems academics was your strength and you feel yourself lacking in taking more practical/entrepreneurial approaches, take small victories that don't have much downside and that you can do in your free time. It may help you "get it"

"If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them." - Bruce Lee
