    #216: Bringing your small business into web3

    #216: Bringing your small business into web3

    I believe that ​​our education systems and how our society is structured traps us. We are taught to fit within a mold so that we are ‘employable’ and can hopefully find a job that allows us enough pay to live comfortably and gives us a few weeks off a year. ⁣
     

    Yet inflation is skyrocketing, the cost of living is outrageous and people feel disconnected from things that genuinely make them come alive. ⁣

    We need change. ⁣
     
    I know for many of you reading this, you feel that way too as entrepreneurship is about taking a step away from all of that. 

    For almost a year now I have been exploring blockchain technology (crypto) and web3. ⁣

    There are many things that overlap with my passions and curiosities. Entrepreneurship, sovereignty, community care, innovation, philosophy, and more. ⁣

    Like every sector there are people in the space whose only real objective is making money with little regard for others.⁣

    However there's also an emergence of concepts and ways of creating that previously could only work in small microscopic ways. ⁣

    On this week's podcast I explore ways in which you could possibly use these things in your own business. As well we explore public goods, community resource sharing, regenerative economics that value the environment and sustaining it, trying to solve complex philosophical problems in the open, building out systems that can help mass amounts of people achieve financial freedom through shared rewards and more. ⁣

    The more time I spend learning the more I can see how revolutionary it can be if we empower ourselves to learn about it. ⁣

    There is a massive learning curve, but I fundamentally believe it is worth it. ⁣
     
    ⁣I also believe that online entrepreneurs like you and I are so close to it already as we need to keep up with changing directions of the internet. ⁣

    Always feel free to hit reply if you have any questions or shoot me a message on IG (@lanadingwall) or twitter (@lanzdingz)⁣
     
    Our world is shifting and I want to ensure that people who are community oriented have the tools and resources needed to participate in this space - otherwise it’s just going to be the same old power systems. ⁣

    We have an opportunity to make a shift, but it’s going to require enough of us to learn and actively participate. I’ll be using my podcast to help with that and I hope you follow along and learn how you can use this technology in your own business as well. 
     
    You’re doing better than you realize. 
     
    Until next week,

    #215: Anticipation vs reality is never the same

    #215: Anticipation vs reality is never the same

    Have you ever found yourself anxiously anticipating something?
    Maybe it’s small like a task you need to complete or maybe it’s a large goal that requires you to push big-time out of your comfort zone. No matter the gap between where you are now and where you want to be, anxiety, fear, doubt, all exist primarily in the anticipation of something- not the act of it. Why is that?
    It’s mostly because when we’re in the act of doing something we’re present and in action mode - which leaves little cognitive space for fear and anxiety to show up. This means that when we’re doing hard things that can bring about big rewards for ourselves, we’re not actually thinking about how hard it is - we’re simply doing it.
    This perspective and reminder can help us make progress on our biggest goals and dreams because it reminds us that often the most anxiety shows up in the anticipation of doing something big - not while actually doing it.
    This is what we explore in more detail in this weeks podcast episode. I remind myself of this when I find myself overthinking a situation, which tends to leave me stalling even though I really want this thing to happen.
    I hope this perspective shift helps you as it has me. As always you’re doing better than you realize, and you have what it takes to accomplish your dreams.
    I believe in you and I hope to chat with you next week

    #214: Self sovereignty is connected to community care

    #214: Self sovereignty is connected to community care

    If you’re on social media and work in the space of  entrepreneurship and/or spirituality you’ve most likely heard the term self sovereign over the past few years. 
     
    I wanted to dive a little deeper into what I feel it means and why it is directly connected to community care - because sometimes when I hear people use it, it just comes off as inherently selfish and not empowering at all. 
     
    Self sovereignty and community care are highly interconnected. The more empowering and expansive a community is, the more sovereign you become. Why is this? It’s because they teach you to use the tools and resources within you over telling you you need them (the community) and must conform to their rules and boxes to fit in. 
     
    Being sovereign is less about doing everything yourself and it's more about interacting with the world in a way that's fully you. Sometimes that means having full responsibility over yourself to help protect and ensure your freedom AND sometimes it's allowing others to do what they're great at (and love) so that you can do what you're great at - because this is also a form of protecting yourself. This protects your time and helps ensure you have the freedom to pursue what you love. 
     
    This week I dive further into this topic and explore how it intersects with entrepreneurship, web3, philosophy, mindfulness and more. Check out the episode here. 
     
    Many of us yearn for something different, but if we don’t explore community and sovereignty as interconnected, we might end up building more of what we already have. 
     
    Our individual freedom does not need to come at the expense of our community and our community doesn’t need to come at the expense of ourselves. 
     
    I believe things like entrepreneurship, web3, mindfulness and other things can help us build a more sustainable and flourishing community for all of us. 
    Until next week,
