RE: TechLead (Youtuber) Talks About His Divorce
Apparantly he lost his job with facebook (employer was never identified in his vids).

Seems an interesting turn of events. I bet it was his divorce rape video that did it.

Interesting. My Facebook feed occasionally is dotted with these short articles from their HR dept. highlighting a particular exceptional employee and their “fascinating” story about their body of work and their passion for doing good, working for Facebook. And it’s always a female. Director and senior engineer level position.

RE: TechLead (Youtuber) Talks About His Divorce
I used to casually watch his videos months before I saw the divorce thread. I never knew he worked for FB. I thought he was a lean millionaire living off small royalties (~60k USD/year) from his app he made for photography. Everyday I keep hearing about people losing their jobs because of social media...you'd think with 20 years of history people would wise up to it. I loled at how he was so serious and devastated but still plugged his ad. I like this guy, he's basically me but incredibly blue pill outside of his circle of competence.

RE: TechLead (Youtuber) Talks About His Divorce
I enjoyed that vlog(I don't usually watch vlogs at all) and his positive outlook(I think) which no doubts come from him being financially independent. I'm sure hes mentally going through some shit none the less but real rock bottom would be if he probably didn't have millions in the bank. I plan to follow him and see what he decides to do with his new found freedom and if he does go towards rock bottom or find a new purpose.

His not fully Blue Pill and leans a bit too far to the right - now MGTOW with his social media presence. I am sure that if he were a pink-haired transgender full on SJWs, then Facebook would be proud to keep him on.

I could have told him that going into Red Pill/MGTOW or any real alternative subjects would cause problems for him while working for Facebook. I would strongly recommend him to at best focus on lifestyle or general career/success advice. It's possible that they go against too strong monetization, but it seems to me that Facebook used this as an excuse. They just did not like his politics and would not want to risk him become more Red Pilled in the future.

Guys who go MGTOW already left the Blue Pill plantation even if the direction is misguided in my opinion.

RE: TechLead (Youtuber) Talks About His Divorce
He was getting paid $500K a year? Even for a crappy work/life balance that is something. I wonder how much of that gets burned up in silicon valley cost of living? I doubt his vaunted "financial independence" would last long paying to live in that area without a fulltime job.

That being said, I think the moral of the story is money doesn't buy happiness. A man's ego takes the two biggest hits when his wife leaves him and when he gets fired and he's now taken them in quick succession. He has the deadpan face down but if things keep going this way I can see him offering us one final life-hacking tip of jumping from the Golden Gate bridge.

[Image: CVTFXrLWsAE2iGX.jpg]

Point being, the guy's youtube fame revolves around the idea that he is a role-model who will mentor us on how to achieve his high level of success, but the more his life hits the skids, the less credible he becomes as a self-help guru. Then his life becomes yet another reality-show soap-opera as we watch the unfolding car-crash.

I feel for the guy, but I'm curious to see how it unfolds. I wonder if he has got what it takes to metaphorically or literally buy a motorbike and a pair of mirrorshades and go completely off the reservation, now that, well, he's been kicked off it anyway.

Dr Johnson rumbles with the RawGod. And lives to regret it.

TechLead needs to get in touch with his hedonistic side and let loose a bit. I understand that he has a kid and that his wife ran away the child but if I were I'd take a long vacation to bang some sluts and purge my senses.

True, he could get mad pussy with all that money. Just go to Philippines or Thailand.

People like him are stuck inside their own brains. Analysis paralysis. That's why he makes these videos. I don't think he finds it easy to actually be present and live in the moment. That's why he gets paid the big bux but it has a downside. That section at the end where he went to a carnival. He needs to do that and NOT self-consciously film himself doing it while rambling into the camera. Less thinking. Less vlogging. More living.

It's actually the opposite.

He's the guy who will give you the honest, unvarnished truth about things. And he will dish details.

Real life income and sales stats. Wins and losses. Introspection, what it feels like, everything.

His style is not that different from Roosh's in many ways.

His wife leaving, going through the divorce, separation from his kid must come as a kick in the nuts, for sure.

But getting a sudden termination of his work contract at FB is not going to faze him, at all.

The guy is not hurting for money. It's an extremely buoyant job market. He's not acting when he says that it's probably a positive development for him.

RE: TechLead (Youtuber) Talks About His Divorce
I enjoy his dry and unintentional sense of humor very much! I believe he got fired cause the special snowflakes @ Fb felt "attacked" and "weird" around him when he started talking about his divorce publicly. The women over there who already divorced raped a man... or are in a position to (very high % most likely) simply couldn't handle being around someone "reflecting & reminding" them of their legal... but dubious actions. She damn well knows that 5k a month or whatever she gets is spent on her closet... and when a men like him makes it so public... it simply hits too close to home to be around such a man!

And it's unbelievable how much outlook & introspection this forum brings! It just hits me that unless you're a complete beta... or a serious undercover Alpha who keeps a lid on it... working with women is like a ticking time Bomb! Dude makes 500K... got canned worse than a Wal-Mart Blue Vest... and all cuz of her feeelingzzz! Every men who's not self employed must absolutely have an emergency Bankroll nowdays! No Exception! Work 100 a week til you hit your #! With the younger generation of women who grew up unfeminine from the get go... shit ain't safe no more!

I am sure the UAE husband would have been well served reading the Arabian Nights. I am sure there is a short story therein about being too kind to women.

Don't spend all your energy on sex and all your money on women; they have destroyed kings. (Proverbs 31:3 GNB)

Maybe he should look into the San Mateo, CA office for Chinese giant AliBaba, hehe. Maybe their HR bosses are less SJW than Facebook & the multinational firm might appreciate his cultural inheritance from both sides of the globe. Just speculating here...

I can't even imagine working for big tech these days.

All managers women, secret spy committees made up of trannies and hardcore SJWs sniffing out wrong thinkers and icing them out / dismissing them on the down low while avoiding wrongful termination lawsuits.

No money in the world is worth being constantly in the spotlight for wrongthink and he isn't even white...

Unfortunately, his supremely High IQ shielded him from even contemplating that this video would be the end for him... whereas any man with more than 100 approaches under his belt would've sniffed it from a mile away!

Well maybe the unfortunate isn't so unfortunate for him! Even after divorce rape... he'll still be rich, and his extremely rational mind is most likely shielding him from deeply feeling his emotions... which in my book makes it virtually impossible for him to off himself!

Unless he goes full MGTOW, the next one will be one of his Groupies... or he'll simply make a few pit stop to Vegas to... you Know... buy Sum Luv! He'll Be Aight!

He is close to his parents and lives with them so it's not the same situation as an alienated white guy that is all alone and might not even have solid friends.

It's less the approaches which tell you that, but more that the guys who do the approaches also read sites like Return of Kings and Rollo Tomassi. After a few blogs and examples everyone knows what's up. If they fire you for a Dongle-joke in private while a HR-cunt listens to it, then they certainly fire you for wrong-think on a rather big Youtube channel. It's just that his path on the Red Pill has barely begun and he only looked at some aspects.

Though it's true - I cannot imagine him doing approaches - he likely would consider a Daygame approach as some kind of harrassment.

It reminds me of those 2 coffee-shop owners who thought it was a good idea to have a podcast running where they talked about their sexual experiences. Meanwhile their customers were mostly SJWs, liberals and hipsters. Those two guys did plenty of approaches but did not care to read one bit about the political aspect of the Red Pill and the entire feminist establishment. It cost them their business and reputation in their smallish town.

Also it's telling that he says what he would be doing hiding the fact of being fired from his wife - going to some coffee shop to send out applications......

Human beings, regardless of culture, race, or geography, have lived in multi-generational households for pretty much all of history. Only recently with women going to workforce and labor efficiency, which sends people all over country and world for the right job, have we started living alone.

We're not supposed to live alone. Even if you are an introvert we still need others. Without that social structure our lives become hell.

Sebastian Junger talks about this in his book Tribe. He cited a study where rats were exposed to physical and emotional trauma. Those that returned to isolation suffered long term effects from the trauma whereas those who returned to a cage with others rats not only recovered quickly but after a time were indistinguishable from rats that had not experienced any trauma.

Junger says we are living in cubicles at work and cubbies at home. And inevitably we experience trauma (be it chronic or acute illness, relationship issues, career, or loss) and then all of a sudden, when we need our friends and families the most, we found ourselves alone staring at four walls in the faceless anonymity of high density cities or the unforgiving isolation of exurb/rural living.

Techlead is lucky that he has his parents to rely on. Yes his money helps but the parents are key to him surviving this family and career trauma.

For us average Joes we're fucked because not only are modern families more broken than ever in western society but also our relationship with women are becoming more superficial and less reliable than ever before. The traditional benefits of an LTR and especially marriage are declining. But it's not like women are happier. They are trading their fertile and most nurturing years (18-30) to ride the cc with Chad and Tyrone and make powerpoints for $60k/year.

RE: TechLead (Youtuber) Talks About His Divorce
I don't know about recently but he did lose something like that in the past. What's really cool about his personality is that he is completely open about his errors and doesn't care. He tried his hand at the stock market and he lost a lot, it's not for him, he makes consistent gains in his circle of competence. You can fail at everything but only need to succeed in a few areas to be rich.

I tried my hand at the stock market too, lost something like 13-15k total. Decided it wasn't for me, cut my losses, and moved on to the next investment vehicle that worked. In a few years I was already offsetting my capital gains against my previous capital losses in stocks.

I didn't say he wasn't giving the unvarnished truth as he sees it. I said he's miserable and part of that misery comes from constant navel-gazing introspection. Believe me, I know from personal experience.

I think people who fashion themselves self-help gurus lose credibility when the life they used to hold up as as an ideal to aspire to comes crumbling down. It demonstrates that they didn't know all the answers after all. The older I get the more this old adage makes sense as does "pride goeth before the fall".

Neither was Anthony Bourdain or Tiger Woods (before his comeback). The guy dost protest too much when he says he's not depressed over this one-two punch. Remember the bit where he asked the audience whether he hit rock bottom? That's him admitting that he's hit rock bottom emotionally without actually saying it outright. And don't expect someone to break out in tears on his youtube channel. How he's really feeling when the camera isn't recording is going to be worse.
