How Ashton Kutcher And Guy Oseary Built A $250 Million Portfolio With Startups Like Uber And Airbnb

Actor Ashton Kutcher became iconic playing vapid pretty boys. But along with Madonna manager Guy Oseary, he’s been backed by some of the world’s best-known billionaires (Ron Burkle, Eric Schmidt, Mark Cuban, David Geffen, Marc Benioff). And he’s helped fund some of the greatest tech deals ever (Uber, Airbnb, Skype, Pinterest, Spotify). After turning $30 million into a quarter-billion, he’s going bigger–and crafting one of the most unusual stories in modern money management.

Does anyone have any suggestions on hanging light fixtures or the piece that goes over an aquarium? I’ve got both of my betta boys in good sized tanks (Midas is in a 10g and Peach is in a 13g, and I also have a 29g that I’m about to set up as a community tank), but I’m wanting to add floating plants. Problem is, the tops I have now are too low. I called Pet Smart and the girl I spoke to said she didn’t see any that hung or connected to and went over the tank, but I’m going tomorrow anyway, so I’m going to have a look. Anything helps!

I have a question, do you regret making the post about 'If you reblog this you'll get this and that in your inbox' because like,, I am not a creative person so how do you do it? I applaud you,,

That’s a two part answer. Regret it? Not really. I just think I didn’t really measure how popular it’d get, or how little positive encouragement I got to continue working on this (on that, thank you very much for your message, and all other good luck messages. If I haven’t answered, it’s because I keep it in my inbox to keep me going). Or how bad tumblr activity works (it’s a never-ending list, you can’t browse it by date or by type of note, so it slows down my computer really easily, and I have to be super careful or it freezes).

That said, I sort of built a system on how to do these.

Money in its final, completed character now appears in all directions as a contradiction, a contradiction which dissolves itself, drives towards its own dissolution. As the general form of wealth, the whole world of real riches stands opposite it. It is their pure abstraction – ..it is a pure fantasy. Midas.
