Hey Giants, welcome to episode #83. If this is the first time you’re tuning in, thank you so very much for being here! This podcast explores the decision-making of people who have been exposed and have proven experience at a world-class level of specialisation. It is my deep belief that Giant living requires giant thinking and if you resonate with that, you might enjoy the portfolio of guests we’ve had on the show, from Kelly Slater, to multiple Shark Tank Investors, to Gold Medalist Olympians, to Musicians, Designers, Creatives, Founders and leaders of all types – for organisations such as Nike, Deloitte, VISA, Squarespace, WordPress, CreativeLive, Vaynermedia and even The White House.
Now for those that have been a long-time, dedicated listener, firstly, I’d like to apologise for the radio-silence. I took a year off the podcast ‘grid’. Straight up. Without any announcement, I just needed a break. Which, in hindsight, I definitely could have managed, communicated and planned better. But this … ‘time’ – gave me the space to untangle and to recalibrate. It gave me a new set of eyes and a new vantage point. It helped me refine what’s important; who I want to serve and how best (for now) to do it.
I want to serve entrepreneurs and business owners. Whether you’re a designer or in the creative industry, or not – it doesn’t matter. What matters is, you have a vision for a better world through your contribution, through your product, through your service. And I want to give you access to people, places, tools and knowledge to help you cut the guesswork, see the blind spots and succeed faster.
So on that note, regarding this Giant Thinkers Podcast, it’ll now be 8 curated episodes per year. An 8-episode season will run from October to November each year and my intention is for it to be of the highest quality. In storytelling, in thinking, in diversity, in vulnerability and in practicality.
To kick things off, for 2021 season 7, this episode is a solo piece. I recently delivered and recorded this talk for Breakfast With Champions – A club on Clubhouse which is a voice-based social app. And the keynote style talk I delivered was on ‘Wealth Wisdom Wellbeing’. My position was that being rich doesn’t necessarily mean being wealthy. Being wealthy could mean acquiring internal treasures for external change. That wealth accumulation is in the overcoming.
So if you’re someone that’s interested in hearing about my very personal journey and the 7 x key tips for attaining my version of true wealth, then this episode is for you.
Now a quick note from me, if we aren’t connected yet on Instagram, I invite you to follow me on my handle @TheGiantThinker as I share daily posts and stories on helping decision-makers, business owners and leaders get unstuck lightning fast through human-centred design methodologies, creative strategies and personal experiences. Send me a DM I’d love to hear from you! You can find me on my handle @TheGiantThinker.
Alright, let’s get stuck in.
I present to you … me – enjoy!!
