Entrepreneur in Extremistan: On Black Swans and Fragile Systems

A couple of days ago I stumbled upon a lecture of Nassim Nicholas Taleb about How Things Gain from Disorder, or in other words how to live in a world governed by extremes, a.k.a. “Extremistan”, and still succeed. Short note before going deeper into the subject. Nassim Nicholas Taleb is an ex-option dealer on Wall […]

Where to Find Crowdfunding Platforms #1

Crowdfunding is on the rise in Europe, with a series of regulations being passed in its favor such as the introduction of equity crowdfunding in some countries (e.g. Italy in 2013) or laxer and more favorable rules in general (e.g. Spain, the “Ley de Fomento a la Financiación Empresarial” law in 2015). I received a lot of input from my followers […]

Enhancing Productivity Medication: Morning Rituals

The smartphone’s alarm clock is promptly (or should I say annoyingly) ringing, signaling the beginning of a new day. It’s morniiiing! ..and you’ve already hit the snooze button for at least 4 times in a row. You get up cranky and not surprisingly find out that you overslept 40 minutes. Your whole day is delayed […]

Bookworm #1

Yeep, I’m quite a bookworm. I finish on average 1 book per week. Why do I say “finish” instead of “read”? Cause I consume 3-4 books simultaneously. Took this idea from James Altucher that encourages idea sex, namely to read books from different subjects and combine that ideas with one another. Works pretty well for me; even though it takes some time. Still the method is better than speed reading a book in 1-2 hours, because you can actually digest every piece of new information one step at a time.

Where To Start From?

A couple of days ago, me and two of my buds have decided that it’s time to start a business. I mean we’re pretty young, the world is full of opportunities so why not? Plus we all hold expertise in different areas, so theoretically the synergy is there, present on the paper somewhere. Down to […]

Life and Negotiations: Givers vs. Takers

With the risk of sounding too corny, we only have one life, right? So we might as well live it to the fullest and put our interests ahead of the others. After all, this is common sense speaking here and you certainly don’t want people to take advantage of you neither in your personal or professional life, or any […]
