Tech Solidarity
"501(c)4 grass-roots organization whose goal is to better connect tech workers with the communities they live in. Our emphasis is on regular in-person meetings, volunteer assistance to organizations serving the vulnerable, and the creative use of labor law in pursuit of an ethical agenda.

Founded in November of 2016 by Maciej Ceglowski, a San Francisco web developer (Pinboard), Tech Solidarity holds quasi-monthly meetups in a number of American cities, coordinates volunteer help for NGOs, and helps secure working journalists and political campaigns."

Aiming for regular in-person events in every major tech center and towards 2018 Mid-terms running the "Great Slate" campaign in rural areas of swing states in order to galvanize Democrats and other opponents of GOP Republicans / Trumpists.

Rich Dad Real Estate Workshop Review
In my opinion, the Rich Dad semiars are absolutely a scam.

They are nothing but elongated sales pitches whose sole purpose is to upsell you incredibly expensive ‘advanced’ real estate courses. By attending one of these free seminars, you’re entering a multi-step sales funnel where the eventually goal is to skin you alive financially.

The people who run these workshops, the so called ‘educators,’ are real predators. They’ll gain your trust by appearing to be very upfront about their intentions. They’ll tell you what they’re going to do, and do it. Strangely, this builds trust.

The truth is, they are the only winners, and everybody who attends their workshops the losers. You lose time and/or money. These workshops are designed to line their pockets, not yours, and they use ‘advanced courses’ and ‘mentorship’ as bait.

But in reality, the real bait is people’s naivety and gullibility. I know this from experience.

Do you know how many people try to become real estate agents and fail? What makes anyone think this would be any easier?

I don’t doubt that some people may have built businesses using these methods, but I would guess that they are few and far between. You’re probably better off spending $15,000 on lottery tickets, or attending a legitimate college.
