One Job Isn't EnoughJun 13, 2022
📣Mayday, mayday it’s Friday the 13th! While it’s another ‘Day in May’, more appropriately it feels like the international distress signal. Whether it’s the frantic rush to stock up on goods or knowing where to store your cash, inflation continues to burn from both ends of the stick.🧨 It’s clear to me that one job isn’t going to cut it.
Ouch!🤕 That hurts to read again. I don’t recall that being part of our basic education, do you?
As a CEO, the need to understand business finances, marketplace places, and the venture capital world has led me a far way in growing our business, but learning the global macroeconomics systems is another beast.🐻
I’ve swapped the limited entertainment watching to nearly exclusively educational, as this is a key moment in time to be paying attention.👀 While I circle through a number of incredible, world-renowned economists, investors and financial literacy educators, if I had to pick my favourites, I’d recommend:
, especially episodes with their Co-FounderRaoul Paul
, magic and learning about finances can work
, securities, equities, bonds, crypto and more (how does she actually do it all!?)
Comment below if you want more recommendations👇🏽, I have ample playlists!
The Future Of Investing
As usual, the people who are less advantaged overall tend to be the ones most harmed by the power of the few who control these systems. As a younger adult entering the job market in the 2008/2009 recession, this was not a nice trip.
This is also why I want to share my own journey, as a novice investor and the steps I take to learn, feel more empowered and confident about the opportunities ahead. In newsletters to come, I’ll also be profiling the less-typical investors, economists and crypto Founders to learn how they started out. Humanising our mistakes, challenges and fears while learning something new is what courage is all about, especially in challenging times. My hope for you and me is this becomes one of the best decisions we make on this journey together.
That’s it from me for now.
Bye bye 👋🏻👋🏻
