Original Show Notes

On today's episode of the podcast, I'm sharing my recent keynote from Mindset Matters which is a business growth, marketing, scaling, branding, and mindset conference in Australia. We talk about a wide range of topics from business to entrepreneurship. I share my thoughts on the importance of kind candor and how it is something I've struggled with in the past. I also talk about the massive importance of self-love and remind people that there will always be bad days, especially in business & entrepreneurship. Then I dive into my thoughts on AI as well as generational battles between Gen Z and Boomers. Finally, I talk about how I react to my business success explaining that I don't think being a good businessman deserves me any extra credit. This is a fascinating conversation for anyone who is interested in business, entrepreneurship, as well as personal growth. Enjoy!:)
