    Nations start Stoic & die Epicurean, the science of no plan B, Nick Hanauer's pitchfork message & more women Plutocrats!

    Nations start Stoic & die Epicurean, the science of no plan B, Nick Hanauer's pitchfork message & more women Plutocrats!

    Hello Shot Callers and everyone else listening.
    Today's podcast is actually a Solocast!  I take you on a slightly "random walk" from relaying some science around NOT always having a plan B, meandering into Stoic & Epicurean philosophy; unravelling the quote that nations start STOIC and die EPICUREAN(with context of course), continue on with the backstory of Nick Hanauer and his pitchfork/middle out economics theory; strongly advocating for a thriving middle class and END on my passionate new private membership: THE WEALTH PACK!
    This is only 30 minutes long and will give you both a nice historical brief on topics that are of VITAL importance to those nations-especially America- who value democracy and economic prosperity.  This isn't rhetoric, this is economics.
    Any thriving, successful nation since the beginning has had one critical element; A STRONG MIDDLE CLASS!  Ignore this at your peril.
    How many extra haircuts can a billionaire get? How many more meals can a billionaire eat?  How many refridgerators are billionaires buying? 
    Quote from Nick Hanauer, "The US made plutocrats, not the other way around.  A thriving middle class is the source of prosperity in capitalistic economies NOT a consequence of it." 
    Nick's Ted Talk can be found here.
    His Pitchfork Economics podcast here.
    How backup plans can harm goal pursuit: The unexpected downside of being prepared for failure.
    Epicurus
    Stoicism
    Will Durant quote
    Thank you for listening to this podcast.  It is my singular goal to exponentially increase female financial wealth and thus improve the well-being of the planet.  I WANT MORE FEMALE PLUTOCRATS! (around the world) 
    Plutocrat: a person whose power derives from their wealth.
    What is the Wealth Pack and why should you join?
    The Wealth Pack wants women to thrive in all aspects of their life and recognizes that we can't focus on all the big buckets of life in a vacuum. 
    Strong mental health is necessary to tackle the other issues of your life.  Strong financial health helps you to stick to your values and live your dreams.  Strong physical help allows you to participate in an active life.  Strong planetary health means we all thrive! 
    I am building a platform & community that will help you thrive;  It is a dynamic source for financial literacy & news as well as a support system for redefining and building wealth; inclusive of mental, physical and planetary well-being. Mind, body, wallet and planet are the top priorities.
    My goal is to reach 50,000 women in the next year. It is radical and it is achievable.  I believe that what I am building will be revolutionary for women but also for the world.  I believe we can find a more harmonious middle way.  But, we need more women PLUTOCRATS! 
    We need you to not just build wealth but to utilize your existing wealth in a way that will actually ensure our legacy is able to be enjoyed by our loved ones.

    Stoic Investing; Wisdom, Temperance, Courage & Justice (a brief solocast by Shannon)

    Hello Shot Callers and Wealth Achemist Warriors,
    I grabbed 25 minutes to put some of the global rough seas we are all experiencing; war, inflation, political strife, environmental stress and beyond into a bit of "stoic" context.
    How can you apply the 4 Stoic virtues to both your day to day life as well as how to build and manager your wealth!
    This is curated to be both informational and inspirational.
    Freedom is the highest dividend money pays and it is priceless!

    John Belizaire, CEO Soluna Computing; Disrupting Crypto Mining with Clean Energy Power

    John Belizaire, CEO Soluna Computing; Disrupting Crypto Mining with Clean Energy Power

    John Belizaire, CEO Soluna Computing; Disrupting Crypto Mining with Clean Energy Power!
    John and the Soluna team are creating green data centers that enable crypto currency's energy consumption to be a feature and NOT a bug!
    John recently spoke on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. to try to help legislators understand just how disruptive & important their clean energy, small footprint data centers can be.
    John had this to say;
    "The reality is that if we execute well, computing can be a catalyst for growth in clean energy — a crucial component to meeting our goals of pollution reduction AND rural job creation. And you in this room have the ability to shape policies that can encourage more sustainable cryptocurrency, deter bad actors and redefine our thinking regarding what grid infrastructure should look like."
    In our podcast, John explains his varied and profitable entrepreneurial background, how he has worked with a core team throughout much of his career and the very compelling economics behind creating "additionality" for the clean energy operators by putting these data centers on sight!
    Reducing curtailment, the lost clean energy that the grid cannot absorb, is a total game changer.  
    $144 billion Private Equity and Venture Capital dollars has gone into the renewable energy sector in the first 5 months of 2022.  That is up from $48 billion in the same period of 2021.  
    Savvy Shot Caller listeners will understand how this will have a serious impact on the investment landscape for investors.
    It is my goal to scale global financial equality by giving you insight into the mega investment trends of the future. 
    Despite the volatile stock and cryptocurrency markets, there is tremendous long term opportunity in both economies for patient and well diversified investors.
    Bonus: Soluna Computing is a wholly owned subsidiary of Soluna Holdings.  Soluna is traded on the NASDAW under the symbol SLNH.

    Sexy, Sexy Time with Dancoise Koechler & Shannon Sagawe

    Sexy, Sexy Time with Dancoise Koechler & Shannon Sagawe

    Hey Shot Callers, get ready for a fun and fiesty episode with Dancoise Köchler, founder of Expat Ladies Zürich and me, your Shot Caller host!
    What is sexy, sexy time?  Well, it is a bit of a mash up between two women who met in Zürich over 10 years ago when both were practising their entrepreneurial chops at a trade fair- Dancoise with her Cake Lady brand and me with my Prêt á Party e-commerce business.  
    In 2020,  I invited Dancoise to come on the podcast to talk about race, divorce with small children, financial confidence and her self-love journey.
    Fast forward to May 2022 and we have just as great a connection; discussing hot topics like Roe v. Wade, owning your power, being unafraid to go for it as entrepreneurs, preventing financial vulnerability and a whole lot of sass and excitement about the fast growing sextech and "love making" creator economies!
    Depending upon the age of your children, you may want to listen to this with earpods or a headset:)
    There is nothing inappropriate; just two women talking about real, sexual topics that empower. 
    If you love this episode and would like to hear more from this dynamic duo in the future, please reach out; rate the podcast, leave a review or check us out on all the social media links!

A wealth of knowledge. Literally!

So many interesting topics to dive into - always with a slant on what’s good for the world but also interesting from a finance or investment perspective. Love it.
