S1: The Entrepreneur
I bought my first NFT in 2015 and my first bitcoin in 2011. When I was at uni, I’d often argue with my tutors that what they’re teaching us would be irrelevant in a few years. So, I’d just not waste my time learning stuff I knew I’d never need.
It takes seconds for me to analyse a business idea and foresee its potential. That’s why I sometimes find it difficult to be polite and empathetic – why should we spend even a moment on something that will never see the light of the day? I’ve predicted the rise and downfall of more companies than I can count. I’m not a fortune teller or someone who sees the future, I just see myself as someone whose mission in life is to create it.
It puzzles me how often people get lost in the details and practicalities of the process, without seeing and assessing the big picture. I never lose sight of my main goal and the “why” behind it.
I push my team to its limit to deliver what others deemed impossible. Please don’t pull the “do customers need that?” card. Anyone can build what people say they want. Progress happens when you create stuff that’s never been done before, yet - people can’t imagine how they’ve ever lived without it.
