Here's what I've published lately:
Here's the interesting stuff I have learned.
- Airlines are hiring en masse. Some have sponsored programs to become pilots too.
- The Vatican has its own domain extension: .va.
- Travel hack: if you enter last on the plane, you can choose any random seat that remained free.
- Best countries for expats in 2022.
- A recession happens when a country produces less output than it did the previous year. Usually, this happens due to a lack of money after a financial crisis. In our case, it’s happening due to a lack of manpower: companies don’t have enough people to sustain production. So don’t worry too much about getting a job. Worry about food and energy shortages instead.
- Companies that will lose money during the recession are companies that do not provide substantial value or that have shaky finances. Eg: Netflix (Youtube is free), Facebook (people stop clicking on ads), Tesla (essentially a Ponzi scheme). Food companies, airports, energy companies etc aren’t firing anyone. They’re hiring.
- The car of the future!
- Making more money > saving.
- Iceland never participated in a war and the constitution doesn’t even have a mechanism for that. Sounds like a great place to retire!
- Somatics is the art of solving trauma with both the mind and body. The best book on the topic is “The body keeps the score”.
- Peter Thiel on stagnation. Old, but golden.
- Chris Hemsworth has an app to monetize his body. I don’t think you should get it as it’s too expensive, but the idea in itself is genius. It’s a more elaborated version of OnlyFans.
- This startup is the Uber of massage. Some VCs will really invest in anything!
- Interesting analogy from Steph Smith: imagine you’re born with only €80, nothing more. How would you spend them? By being very, very careful, and only buying things you really like. Consider that each € represents one year of your life. How are you spending them now? Are you where you want to be? Do you do what you want to do?
- A kind reminder to always trust yourself before everyone else when it comes to things like the economy, business, or startup valuation. Eg:
