It's a new world. For young people to survive let alone thrive is becoming more of a challenge.
It's the best time to be alive in all of history, crime is at an all-time low in the developed world, information on everything is available to everyone, we have access to clean food and water daily, then why are we all so miserable.
This podcast explores what it is to live and thrive in the 21st century, whether you're a 'millenial' (nowadays just anyone under 30 who is obviously entitled and rude duh!) or younger (also a 'millenial' to anyone older than you). This is a personal journey. Of a high achiever coming to terms with his own humanity, studying philosophy, history and psychology combined with the structure of his engineering background.
A self-proclaimed 'Life Maximalist', Joe has lived in 5 countries, 3 continents, visited over 30 countries, founded 3 businesses, speaks 3 languages, built the tech behind $1.5M in venture capital fund-raising, has achieved over 100% net worth growth year on year for 5 years in investing and entrepreneurship. Having met 1000s of different people from all cultures and personality-types he aims to understand the human experience and how we so quickly have tried to adapt from cave-dwelling hunter-gatherers to Quantitative Trading and Virtual Reality Environment Designers.

It comes from the North Star, Polaris, in the sky that you can follow when lost, you can reorient yourself just […]
Waiting to be a hero
We are plagued by Protagonism. Protagonism: The belief that we are the ‘main character’ of the story, that important things will happen in front of us and all other people are side characters or NPCs. I’ve lived my whole life from my own perspective. And, you’ve lived your whole life from your own perspective. We […]
Why knowing something isn’t enough
What does it mean to believe something? How is it different to knowing something? “What do I believe in?” A question I dance with regularly. What do you believe in? Is it the things that bubble up in our mind when we ask ourselves that question? Today we’re going to dive into how to get […]
The pain of fear, and the fear of pain
