Business & Finance & Marketing & Mindset
A finance tech industry refugee and repeat startuper, my focus has turned back to online business building and investing. I can’t help but view the world of digital marketing through the lens of my finance industry experience. It’s sometimes exciting, other times inane but always interesting.
What also motivates me, decades into ‘careerhood’, is a persistent hunger to learn, grow and explore new disciplines. I’ve done a lot with an average brain and below average qualifications, but I’m only halfway done. There’s never been a better time to be a ravenous self-learner.
The aim is to grow as fast and as far as life and time permits, and to positively impact others along the way. And the people I meet on the path ahead will likely help me more than I can help them. So thank you all, in advance.
