Who is This For?
Business people, Entrepreneurs & people who hope to start a successful business one day.
What Kind of Entrepreneurs & Business People?
The kind that wants to advance faster in their career or business. By learning from mistakes you get a chance to avoid falling into pot holes everyone else falls into – and get there faster.
Since your time is limited in this world, you can’t afford to waste your time falling into every single mistake, it’s better to learn from someone elses. Even if you do have enough time to do every single mistake – it’ll take you longer to get where you want… driving on a flat surface is easier and faster than driving on a bumpy surface.
So if you value time and want to succeed faster than everyone else…. learning from other’s mistakes is a great way to do it. It takes less time reading about someones mistake than to do it yourself.
How We Can Help You?
Foolishness File gives you in-depth how to posts. Except, they aren’t just how to posts.
They are “How to” and “How not to” posts. In other words, unlike many other blogs out there… we tell you what to do and what not to do in all our posts. Giving you a full education in every single topics.
Want to Know What We Really Hate?
We hate it when we read a “How to” guide and then it doesn’t work. Not because the information was wrong, but because we fell into something wrong without knowing.
Could it really be the readers fault? Of course, not. The writer failed to address the common mistakes that people could fall in whilst implementing something.
But, maybe we’re just being hard on them.
Telling people what not to do + what to do does require some experience. So, it doesn’t come as a surprise when we see a lot of writers failing to address common mistakes that a reader could fall in.
Good news for you, we’re here to help give you a complete education – showing you the wrong and right.
How Can You Help?
Easy, just spread the word and share our content with your networks. Linkedin, facebook, twitter, make a video on youtube, whatever you do will help us to help you serve your better. But how is that you might ask? Well, for us to get influential contributors, we need to have a lot of traffic. These guys are busy and they want to help you, but they won’t waste their time writing an article for one person at a time, they want to reach a big audience all at once. And there’s one way to do that…tell your networks to come.

Let’s Not Exaggerate
Lets be real, you will still make a few mistakes and encounter a few failures as well. But why make a decision that you know is wrong that someone already warned you about? There is a russian expression which goes like:
[tweetthis]”The wise man learns from someone else’s mistakes, the smart man learns from his own, and the stupid one never learns.”[/tweetthis]
How it began
The idea came to me (Zak Mustapha) after recieving an email from Brandon Hakim regarding Warren Buffett’s partner, Charlie Munger who used to keep a “file of foolishness” in order to avoid bad decisions. Since humans are bound to make mistakes, it’s a good habit to learn from each others mistakes rather than make the same mistake someone has already done before.
It was an awesome idea especcially since I always want things to happen faster than usual.
From that day, Foolishness File was born.
