I use supply and demand theory in my business to this day but no one taught me about personal finance. I learnt through books, courses that I paid to go on and through trial and error; the good old fashioned way. I have paid a high price for the skills I have developed and I think it is time I gave it all away for free...…...
I have been doing that with entrepreneurship for the last decade now. Giving away the course I wish I had when I was launching my business. Katie and I have decided to do this for personal finance next.
We came here for Katie to learn Jazz piano, to go to the bars and listen to jazz and soak up the food and culture. 3 or 4 days after we arrived here, the state shut down all restaurants, bars, clubs, events, gyms etc. and the city went on lock-down.
We now have many hours on our hands and I am wondering what to do with them! What am I going to build? What am I going to learn? What am I going to create?
I don't see the rate of change slowing down, I can't foresee the next black swan event and I have given up trying to predict what is going to happen next. What I am working on is how I react and I want to share some thoughts that I think will give you comfort and inspiration in these dark and changing times...…...
The last decade has just finished and the question I have started to think about is: "What are you going to build over the next 10 years?"
10 or 12 years ago I started to do annual goal setting and reflection and have slowly developed my list of questions and process over the last decade. I have run it with everyone on the PopUp team and shared with friends to great impact but not published it yet! This is what I want to give to you for this year!
I have loved watching these movies and it has left me with a dream of being involved, writing or creating something. If you've got a dream shouldn't you pursue it? Why don't more people follow their dreams?
