You don't need to work at a firm to hire your own consultant. No matter what you're trying to learn or who you're trying to become, you can hire someone for that purpose. This podcast comprises what I'm learning from the consultants I hire and from the leaders I meet with around the world—as well as from the people in my community. This began with a simple premise: what you don't do today, you won't do tomorrow. Let's talk about it.

Consultancy (noun): the state of being a consultant; the position of a consultant; a person or firm that provides consulting advice or services.


About me:
I'm a software engineer working in #Fintech as a #blockchain developer. I previously worked in the health diagnostics and cancer research field. I'm a Certified Blockchain Expert and spend my free time swimming or using Verbling.com to hire private foreign language teachers.

Amazing

He’s a mind blowing guy I’ve learned a lot

Professorial without pomp

You sound like a rare professor who is interesting to listen to—I don’t miss what you have to say, and if I were taking notes, I would be able to take them down logically. Your demeanor is lighthearted. The episodes are knowledgeable but not overly opinionated.
