Leave your High School Friends Home

Keep Pastels to a minimum

Don’t wear your Sunglasses at Night

douchebags3Sure, buy designer shades, but use them for their purpose.  Sunglasses inside, maybe, sunglasses at night? Never.

Nobody Likes a Snob

snobAspire to the finer things in life but a “holier than thou” attitude is only okay if you are making all of your money off rich people.

Keep your Shirt on at the Club

    Ha. Nice.

    This shows that U30's not socially conservative, and knows who the douchebags are.
    I like it, as long as you're not completely made of it.

    Anyhoo, I bet the guys with sunglasses are broke and in debt – and the shirt-off club guy is a prostitute. Not that there's anything wrong with that (?).

    Glad we got your approval! We need a bit of humor on the site once in a while, something that everyone loves.

    And yes, rich or not, they look like morons.

    I support throwing a post like this in the mix every once in a while. I think it posts like this are critical to establishing the U30 brand.

  • http://under30ceo.com MattWilsontv

    Thanks Joe, we are all about having fun, a little humor never hurt anyone.

    LOVING IT! Great post guys – Keep on bring this kind of content with some content that also translates to more formal information and U30CEO will be bookmarked on every CEOs PC – (thats right, screw Apple)

    haha great man glad to hear your loving it!

    Nice! The collar clips crack me up. Also-I'm sure we can agree the guy with his shirt off has an equally douchebaggy hairstyle. Well, more of just hair, rather than style. Matt's 'do has nothing on that guy's fire hazard!

  • http://under30ceo.com MattWilsontv

    Drew–lol thanks for the support on my hairstyle. My hair has caught fire before, but I had my shirt on at the time

    I'm glad you like the mix–we are breaking the mold!

  • heatherwhite

    I laughed out loud – great list! I love money, and making lots of it, but would never want to be known for any of the above.

    Much of the inspiration for his article comes from My New Haircut http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JMOh-cul6M

    Not that these guys are necessarily rich, but most of these guys try to pretend. BTW, if you've never been to Long Island, or Rhode Island, these people do exist and are in full force.

    Thanks for the comment Heather

    Haha… awesome. Absolutely continue with this kind of stuff. The new CEO likes to be entertained in a funny way, not bland and boring. I like to think that even though I'm very careful with my brand and how I present myself, I know I'm also not for everyone. And those that I piss off were never meant to be on my side, while it strengthens those relationships I covet.

    I love shout out to Jeff Reed.

  • http://under30ceo.com MattWilsontv

    Matthew, glad you liked it. It's good to know who you are while you are building your brand and before you make it big. Nobody likes someone who changes when they are rich and famous.

    BTW, who is Jeff Reed?
