Speaking of reading….I’m a busy person, and while I love to read books, I don’t always have the time. On a recommendation, I purchased an app called Blinklist, and it’s the best app I’ve stumbled on this year. In a nutshell, Blinklist is CliffsNotes in an app. You can read or listen to a 15-minute abbreviated version of thousands of non-fiction books. For me, the short or “Blinklist” version of most books is all I need, however in some cases if the book is really good, I will purchase the full version. All books are available in print or audio. If you read a lot of non-fiction books, but are short on time like I am, Blinklist is a perfect addition to your app collection.
Over the last few weeks, I have had the opportunity to speak at the T3 Conference in Florida…I surprised the audience when I explained how the issue of diversity has been framed incorrectly, and has for the most part alienated the business community.
Elon Musk dropped by the Real Time with Bill Maher show recently for an interview with the host. Maher, who considers himself a liberal is an obvious fan of the CEO of Tesla and Space X. The centerpiece of their conversation was their discussion regarding what Musk called the “woke mind virus” or what I prefer to call “cancel culture”.
People sometimes get me wrong. They think that because I talk a lot about giving back and living modestly, I must not care about money. On the contrary, I care a lot about money because I understand how our system works.
