A Better Entrepreneur Podcast

No Labels, Mindset Not Tactics, Starting A Business & Part 3 Of The Andy Shaw Interview

This week, I spring into ‘survival mode’ as I experience a power cut at home, which leads me to reflect on the labels we give ourselves, before talking about UBI and what impact it will have on people if introduced. More importantly, I share how how people can avoid becoming dependent on handouts in case a teen with a set of AI prompts replace them.

I show you how to get a free copy of my fledgling new book ‘How To Start A Business (The ‘Better Entrepreneur’ Way)’ and I include Part 3 of the incredible interview with one of my mentors and great friends, best-selling author and property multi-millionaire Andy Shaw.

This is Part 3 of a 5-part conversation we had a couple of weeks ago, and, if you can’t bear the suspense, you can find a video version of it all on my YouTube Channel.

We ranged from how he became the unique thinker he is, how he made his first fortune, then lost that fortune and his ability to think well, very suddenly in the Global Financial Crisis of 2008-2010, then how he made it all back again in a totally different way by designing his life to suit him now and learning to say ‘no’ to anything that didn’t fit. Including Barak Obama’s sister!

Find Andy’s books on Amazon and the series of articles on ‘How To Discern Well - Part 1’ here. Also check out his excellent series of articles on ‘How To Overcome All Fears’.

Till next week!

Warm regards
