He was working in marketing and threw it all away to work on the #sidehustle. Now he runs an online shop where he sells earmuffs for dogs. All types of dogs! So inspiring to hear him face the fear of asking his dad for a $200K loan!!

I linked it on my LinkedIn. We should connect. Work on the sales lead trading, you know?

Got up at 5am, had an amazing morning jog, said amazing morning mantras, shot off e-mails to advise everyone that I'm reading e-mails just between 2-3pm today to catch up e-mails, now getting some amazing #inspro while driving this amazing kale breakfast smoothie!! It's about motivation!! The motivation to write a children's book about elephants enjoying quinoa snacks!! Love it so much that I'm going to double down on putting leads in Salesforce this morning!! So motivating, amazing!!

Tough day at the coalface (we didn't quite get the deal as we forgot to attend the compulsory information session and cocktails put on by the target's procurement department -- didn't meet "cultural fit") and a setback for the #sidehustle (turns out that someone already had registered @pug_reactions -- so much for the marketing blitz!) but got home, got my wine on and sat back to watch a TED talk with Richard Branson! Sir Richard Branson! What an inspiro-boost, I love how he's changed the world and has stayed real!! Can't believe he went from selling tubular bells door-to-door to running an airline!! I'm gonna see if anyone has registered @sirrichardbranson_reactions!!

It's been a tough week for everyone (the cold brew place has closed down... it wasn't just a novelty!! I miss my smooth java jolt!!) but I just saw the mooooost amazing #inspiro about finding my spark! How amazing is it to find that spark! This is why TED is so much better than Netflix or watching the news!!

I'm sure I was supposed to do something on Tuesday, but totes forgot about it - maybe it was a follow up call. Oh well, wine time!

Got my #inspiro goin' on the Saturday morning treadmill!! Sir Richard Branson (who needs no introduction - I loved loved loved every episode of The Rebel Billionaire) and The LAD Bible (totally shaking up the media game #gamechangerlad) - in podcast form! Now that's a disrupter!! Loved the insights into deliberately stupid shitposting on social media... I smell a boost to the #sidehustle!!

Got my LinkedIn buzz on today in between meetings (first one was deciding which shade of blue to use in the proposal, second one was obtaining sign off - Carolina Blue is so in this year) and I read about Elon Musk taking people to the moon! Yes, the moon! Can you imagine going to THE MOON with Elon Musk!! Talk about #gamechanging #inspiro! If I can get the #sidehustle off the ground (imagine ordering clean organic juice from a mobile app, delivered by 'contractors' that we pay $2.50 per delivery!!) and get some of that sweet angel investor #dough, I'm sure I'll be flying away with a negroni in hand!!!

Oh applications have closed. Never mind, we also have this other EXCITING job on our books! It's in an industrial estate in a dusty fringe suburb, and requires you to manage a shit-boring project with monumentally high employee attrition and no support from the executive. Starting wage is $24k but negotiable if you have 38 years of experience. Shall I put you forward? Why not?

Hi! My colleague passed your details to me. I hope you don't mind me calling you. I have this EXCITING opportunity that's a perfect match for you! It's in an industrial estate in a dusty fringe suburb, and requires you to manage a shit-boring project with monumentally high employee attrition and… really? Why not?

Hey, crew!!! I'm back from three months of serious #hustle and I have some great pieces of #learning for you, my people!!

1. Swap the negativity for #karma culture - share your leads, baby!
2. Make the most of #futuresuperstar interns!!
3. Don't be negative!!!!! Don't let the #haters tell you that your dream of sustainable kombucha shots is not gonna work!!
4. Ninja fast emailing is expected! And polite!!
5. Make sure you hit the bars with the WeWork crew!!

5. Make sure you hit the the WeWork crew with bars!!

#greatadvice KBP

The secret to making the most of #learningopportunities in the office is something we all have within us but don’t always use.

It’s love.

We all know the importance of opening these things (points to ears)

but what about the importance of opening this thing (points to chest). Am I right? It’s no coincidence that the human heart is the most powerful organ in the body.

Only by bringing love to the office can we really motivate others

and ourselves

to reach those goals.

So next time you’re in a stressful situation and thinking about hitting the WeWork team with bars . Stop.

Take a moment.

And remember to love.

I truly believe that ‘stuff’ really does not bring happiness. Family, friends, good health and the satisfaction that comes from making a positive difference are what really matters

— Richard Branson (@richardbranson) July 29, 2019

Great inspiration from Sir Richard Branson, and it's oh so true! I was just telling the intern getting my wheatgrass shot that 'stuff' does not bring happiness, but love and good health does!!

Love is about synergy and we need to tap into it from both ends!! I'll be tweeting this inspiro to Sir Richard (along with a request to be an angel investor for my new #sidehustle: a dating app, helping to connect pug owners exclusively), he'll love it!!

Actual quote from the Firefox team:

And today we're excited to announce that we're moving to a four-week release cycle! We're adjusting our cadence to increase our agility, and bring you new features more quickly. In recent quarters, we've had many requests to take features to market sooner. Feature teams are increasingly working in sprints that align better with shorter release cycles. Considering these factors, it is time we changed our release cadence.

this is the opening sentence of an email youtube sent me (as a customer) a few weeks ago:

We're reaching out with an update on how we'll release YouTube Originals going forward, as well as updates to your YouTube and YouTube Music features.

some besuited buzzwank thought it would be a good idea to send this sentence to every customer

Hey Futurefluencers!

I'm hearing a lot of negative noise around the office since we that great guy, the artisanal barista, could no longer brew up that hot java in the kitchen each morning. Have to say, crew, I was sad too... but the Starbucks will pick you up just as much before a big day of hustle!!!

Yeah, I've seen the stories about issues with the upcoming IPO because our CEO is (allegedly!!!) a 'batshit crazy madman wasting millions on mescaline parties and cryogenics' but we're working through it! More than ever guys, I need you to be thoughtleaders in your field... it's time to tap in from both ends with our customers!!!!
