You can take steps towards being in the right place at the right time, and those near the waterfall will get wet.
What we mean by this is that if you want to work for or with someone, you need to meet them where they are.
How do you do this digitally? Easy, join groups and communities and start getting involved.
The Money Problem
It’s ok to want to push your day rate or your salary higher. Being money-motivated isn’t about being selfish, it’s understanding how you can do more with more. More accessible funds for you and your loved ones mean you can live more generously.
Big Sexy Risks
What’s the biggest risk you can take right now?
If you’re worried about redundancy or can’t find full-time employment, why not start a data consultancy and join our advocacy program?
You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain!
Courage & Asking for help
Alex says being brave enough to ask for help is like telling someone you love them for the first time.
It’s the hardest thing in the world.
But once you’ve done it, it’s the easiest.
Emotional Intelligence & Listening
These two go hand in hand, and there are many great books you can read on the subject, but it’s best to go through real-world scenarios.
One of the ways to do that is to find a mentor and consider mentoring yourself.
You can learn a lot from both having a mentor and being one yourself.
Be honest with someone you look up to about what you want and how they can help you get it, and offer the same for others.
What About The Data?
Using the data available to you, what can you determine about your finances, your business and your risks?
If you don’t know how to figure it out, come and ask us for help.
We hope you’ll find these thoughts useful to you on your journey.
You can learn more in our new courses launch event.
