Stoicism - Perseverance and the Art of Living - TasCast Show Daily - Episode 32

24Jan

A friend I respect and value a lot has recommended that I read the book “The Daily Stoic” by Ryan Holiday. In a nutshell, you could describe stoicism as a Meditation on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living. I’ll try to read the daily stoic daily and talk about some of the content in this podcast and give you my ideas on the ideas of the philosophy of Stoicism so I hope you enjoy.

Getting back to a routine from tomorrow again. Recorded today’s episode at the airport, couldn’t record anything yesterday, sorry about that.

Met a new interesting person yesterday who seemed to totally understand my long-term large dream/vision and that provided me with awesome energy.

How I ruined the last two weeks of work and productivity - TasCast Show Daily - Episode 31

22Jan

Check out the Startup Race at https://thestartuprace.com/investment-readiness-sprint/ to sign up for our investment readiness sprint today guys.

After getting sick a couple of weeks ago, not being able to use my voice, I realised that I had managed to overwhelm myself with responsibilities during the same week and with all the conscious and subconscious pressure on top of my health it made it difficult for me to recover from my cold and therefore also difficult to go back on recording the TasCast Show.

On top, this could work as an experiment, showing me that I am very happy and productive when I record daily and not productive at all when I am not recording.

Hope you guys forgive me.

As always have an amazing day full of love, passion and compassion.

See you guys tomorrow.

What do data scientist do? - TasCast Show Daily - Episode 30

9Jan

As a newbie data scientist I’ve learned that most of the time in a data scientist’s day is spent to organise and clear data so they’re ready for analysis. In today’s episode I share some thoughts on that and what I mean by cleaning and organising data.

We need more women in technology - TasCast Show Daily - Episode 28

7Jan

In today’s episode I talk about why I think there should be more women in technology roles. My thought started after talking to Ali King, a female data engineer and a public speaker who tries to raise awareness about women in tech.

As I looked more into it I realised that there are less women working in tech but also less women finding startup companies, involved in venture capital firms, getting computer science degree, etc.

I do believe that more women in startups and technology in general will benefit the sectors. My personal experience working with woman allows me to say with confidence that they bring many strong elements onto the table and they perceive the world in ways that male colleagues might not be able to do for some reason.

Mark Zuckerberg is looking into blockchain technology and cryptocurrency for Facebook

6Jan

Today my body aches everywhere after my first shift as a bicycle delivery. This is the big negative about that job. The positive is that I’m in control of my shifts, therefore, I can make sure I have enough time to study, work on my projects, and create content.

I am very grateful to have smart friends. Every now and then I get to have conversations with them that help me come up with decisions that I’ve been struggling with. For example I wanted to invest 20% of my income somewhere. The problem is that my income isn’t that great right now. Last night, my friend and ex-business partner, Thomas, wanted to make me aware that he made lots of money the last couple of years from cryptocurrency investments and that Mark Zuckerberg has announced that he’s looking into blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies for the Facebook platform.

That means that if I invest money in new cryptocurrencies that worth as little as $0.02 to $0.04 today their value has the potential to grow to $10 or even $500 in the next 1 to 2 years. That would make a $50 investment today into thousands of dollars in the next 2 years.

Since $50 is not a huge investment, and since 20% of my monthly income is around $130 I am planning to invest this money and take the long-term risk. I will look into the cryptocurrencies a bit more before I start investing next month and I will make sure to share my experience with you on the podcast.

Focusing on one clear goal - How athletes win championships and how we can use the same technique to win in life and business - TasCast Show Daily - Episode 26

5Jan

In today’s episode I remind the world and myself why I do the daily podcast.

A big shoutout to my friend Niki for starting her blog today morning with the goal of writing a short paragraph every morning. I’m really happy for you! :)

Today I also share with the world something I don’t often talk about. I used to play football (or soccer, depending where you live), and I had a serious injury when I was 14 years old and I couldn’t play professionally or semi-professionally anymore so my dream of being the best goalkeeper in the world one day was shuttered. But I moved on!

The one thing I remember from football though is that we had a clear goal at the beginning of the year, for example, “Win the championship accumulating at-least 70 points by the end of the season”. This clear goal would allow us to understand the competition, who we need to win, how to strategize so we can win, etc.

After answering those questions the team was doing one thing every day and every week for the whole year, at-least 3 hours of training every day and one game a week. This routine can help you have energy daily, being focused daily, knowing where you are going daily. You see the picture. The cherry on top were our coaches of-course, I’ll need to talk about it in another episode though.

Vegans are healthier and skinnier than meat eaters. Two common misconceptions about vegans - TasCast Show Daily - Episode 25

4Jan

It is very grey here in Stirling guys. I hope it’s sunny and warm at your location right now.

Two common misconceptions about vegans or plant-based eaters is that they are supposed to be healthier and skinnier than meat eaters. A lot of people will often tell me “oh! I didn’t think you’d be a vegan, you don’t look vegan, you look like you eat everything.” I always laugh and tell them that being a vegan doesn’t mean that I eat only salads.

As a vegan I eat a lot of sweets, sugar, carbohydrates like pasta and rice, plant-based cheeses and more. If I want to be healthier and thinner I have to follow a whole-foods plant-based diet which at the moment I can’t follow because I am too lazy and I say to myself that I am “too busy” to work on it but I have found an interesting diet called “Vegan Ketogenic Diet” which I want to try and see the if I feel different, healthier and have more energy.

When I try the vegan ketogenic diet I will let you know and I’ll update you on the podcast about how I find it and its results for me and my body.

That’s what I talk about in today’s episode guys, I hope you can enjoy it.

What excuses keep us from achieving our ambitions - TasCast Show Daily - Episode 24

3Jan

Episode 24 is here and you know what that means, right? It means that the time for the first guest on the show is nearing! 

Last night I was reading the million morning and today morning I was listening to the Good life project podcast and I got inspired to talk about the two main excuses that people talk about to me when they are “unable” to start working on their business ideas or ambitions.

The two main factors that limit people’s life seems to be time and money. At-least that’s the main excuse that people find. I share some of the ways I deal with the two limitations and how I motivate friends and anyone who wants to be motivated to do more as well.

Are Business Plans Useless? My take on it - TasCast Show Daily - Episode 23

2Jan

I had a small food-poisoning kind of thing last night and today I feel a bit under the weather but I hope it doesn’t affect the podcast and the rest of my day.

If you’re an entrepreneur or if you are looking to start your first venture one of the things that coaches and advisors are telling you is to write a business plan. But do you think a business plan is useful for a startup or a new business? I think a business plan is not really useful. It can be useful only when you’re ready to raise money.

The question then can be “Do you think you’re ready to raise money before you actually test your product or service in the real market?”

I don’t completely dismiss business plans and I give some examples from personal experience for and against business plans usefulness and what you should use instead of a business plan and why.
