The iconic GameStop storefront

Okay, so this past week we have been hearing a lot about the enormous rise of GameStop ($GME) stock and who was responsible, but this was over a year in the making.

But did the stock surge actually have anything to do with GameStop as a company? Umm, yes and no.

Let's talk a little more about GameStop ($GME), which was trading at around $5 a share about a year ago. Since then the pandemic struck, and consequently, they’ve been hit like the rest of brick and mortar stores. Unfortunately, we’re now in 2021 and the pandemic…

Crushing It! by Gary Vaynerchuk

Let’s face it; nowadays, almost everyone you come across is an Entrepreneur. Everybody has started a new business and it’s not really something you can avoid.

We then preclude comparing ourselves to those people and then have a feeling of helplessness. This isn’t limited to ‘successful’ people because this applies to family and friends which makes us feel worse as we deem them to be ‘regular people’ just like us.
