I hate clickbait titles, especially the ones around money-making. I know that sounds really insincere given the title I’ve used for this email. Allow me to explain.
On 5th May 2020, at the peak of COVID lock-down, I was doing the most exciting chore of washing dishes while playing a youtube video in the background. At one point, the speaker said, “I’m only regurgitating everything Naval says.” And he went on to throw out some great ideas.
Once I was done, I looked up the name and stumbled upon a series of podcasts, blog posts and a cult-like following for this person: Naval Ravikant.
I spent the next few days consuming all his content. I found some incredible advice and novel ideas. I was besotted.
Eventually, I stumbled upon his phenomenal video, that might turn out to be an inflection point in my life, hopefully for the better.
Naval Ravikant, in the three hour masterclass, breaks down a lot of concepts involving work, career, money-making and makes some predictions for the future.
I know it isn’t exactly ‘modest’ to be speaking about money in the open. But precisely because of such repressions, the conversations around money have gotten so contorted, that one is either declaring from rooftops “Money is terrible, the root of all evil” or is found frothing at the mouth discussing their latest purchase in a social tug of war, making sure no one enjoys their soup.
Anyway, this video was an eye opener for me. It started an internal churning that eventually led to me to starting my website
. I’m afraid what else the inspiration will make me inflict upon you and others.
I hope you find it as insightful as I did. And if you don’t, er… judge me?
As always, I’d love to hear from you. Just reply to this email and your missive will find me!
Have a lovely Sunday.
