This post is part of the 📖 Start From Zero series.

Today I continue reading chapter 10 in the Adventure section of the book Start From Zero.

The goal of this book is to build the brain of an entrepreneur, one that can create meaningful businesses and income streams from nothing.

The four buildable brains

Tactical success when starting from zero comes down to building four brains.

It is now easier than ever to start and make money. Billionaires and millionaires are made faster than ever in history. It’s not getting harder and slower as some would make you believe.

It’s getting easier and faster. Warren Buffett became a billionaire at 56 years old. Bill Gates held the record for it as a 31 year old billionaire. Zuckerberg did it by age 23. Kylie Jenner is now the record holder at age 21.

It took people like Henry Ford and Rockefeller much more time to hit billionaire status way back then. This is a remarkable time in history.

Chapter 10 — The first brain


Learning to see in Income Streams

This chapter covered two topics.

  • Examples
  • Business Models

First, Example The fastest way I know to build the surveyor’s brain is to apply pattern recognition to existing successful businesses using this framework: Customer. Pain. Solution. Offer.

  1. Who’s the Customer?
  2. What’s the Pain?
  3. What’s the Solution?
  4. What’s the Offer?”

If I explain everything here, then it would be a severe breach of republishing the authored content. Hence I am leaving you guys to make your mind and pull your card to purchase the book. It is the best business book that I read since the beginning of my book journey.

Key Takeaways

Many people need your help. Find customer pain and offer a solution. You have to practice this kind of brain to identify problems in the day to day interactions.


To build a brain that can see in income streams, you need to wear your surveyor’s hat and ask four questions to know the pulse of a successful business.

Find a customer who got a pain point in their business and provide a solution along with an irresistible offer. Damn good, you are already in business. Business is simplified. Isn’t it? For me, at least.

Dude, what are you waiting for? Go and buy.
