A week and a half ago, I flew to Portland for the World Domination Summit — a conference with an admittedly eyebrow-raising title.
The conference is hosted by Chris Guillebeau, the New York Times best-selling author of multiple books, including The Art of Non-Conformity. He was also a previous guest on this podcast.
I’ve wanted to check out WDS for years, so I was thrilled when Chris asked me to give a presentation there.
Then he mentioned that my presentation should be three hours long, which sounded terrifying. But that’s all the more reason to say yes.
I choose my own eyebrow-raising topic, How to Afford Anything … but Not Everything.
At the beginning of July, I isolated myself in a remote, empty house for several days to work on this talk. (Past guest Cal Newport would call this a “deep work retreat.”) The result was a half-day workshop that synthesized many of the ideas about money that I’ve formed after six years of nonstop reading, writing, talking and thinking about this topic.
In today’s episode, I share the first one-third of this presentation. Today’s episode focuses on myths, assumptions and limiting beliefs that we hold around money, work and life.
This is the first of a three-part series. In episodes 89 and 91, I’ll share the second and third parts of the talk.
You can catch the slides (and watch this as a video) on YouTube.
