A few years ago I was a broke, university dropout, at 18 I built an industry leading social media marketing company, and at 27 I resigned as CEO. At 28 I co-founded Flight Story – a marketing and communications company, and thirdweb - a software platform, making it easy to build web3 applications. I then launched private equity fund, Flight Fund, to accelerate the next generation of European unicorns. During this time I decided to launch 'The Diary Of A CEO' podcast with the simple mission of providing an unfiltered journey into the remarkable stories and untold dimensions of the world’s most influential people, experts and thinkers. Thank you for listening.

    Moment 171: STOP DOING THIS! It's Ruining Your Sex Life

    Moment 171: STOP DOING THIS! It's Ruining Your Sex Life

    In this moment, world-renowned philosopher and thinker Alain De Botton discusses how communication can lead to a better sex life. Alain says sex is like a mirror to the relationship as a whole. If something is wrong with a couples sex life, it’s usually a symptom of a wider problem. He says that a first step towards a more fulfilling sex life is reflecting on how you are as a partner. Being open about yourself in a relationship is the best way to create mutual trust, which means that you can ‘tease’ out any issue in a relationship. This then leads to being open with one another sexually.

    Moment 170: The Scientific Method For Unstoppable Confidence: Professor Steve Peters

    Moment 170: The Scientific Method For Unstoppable Confidence: Professor Steve Peters

    In this moment, elite sport psychologist, Professor Steve Peters discusses the way to overcome low self-esteem. Often low self-esteem manifests itself outwardly in abusive relationships, the wrong career, and impulsive behaviours. Dr Peters says these are ‘maladaptive coping strategies’, where you are punishing yourself, thinking that you don’t deserve to treat yourself well, as you believe that you fundamentally don’t deserve happiness. Dr Peters says the solution can be as simple as getting a blank piece of paper and writing down who you want to be, and what behaviours you want to have. He says that this exercise works, as once you remove the interference of your mind, this person you hope to become is actually you, as you are defining yourself.

Life changing

I ran into the youtube channel when I was just having a hard time and I was like this is cool. Then I came out of my depression which was cause by me honestly wanting to make changes and not knowing where to start. Something you talk about is being consistent and I listen at least 5 days a week (I started from your 1st I just got to 40 I think) while I go for my walk. I love that your guest don’t just talk about business but life. I know that to get to the level I desire I have to make changes. I find that your podcast helps me with that and so much more. I value the fact that you are honest about life and your failures I am starting over with building a platform and business. I walked away last time because I couldn’t be consistent. For anyone else reading this know that it is possible to create the life of your dreams but you can’t be the person you are now and get there.

Amazing content

I was shocked to find out Steven is only 31– he sounds SO wise beyond his years! A wonderful interviewer who lets his guests talk and doesn’t make it all about him, his guests are top quality too and I’ve learned so much. This is a favorite pod now.
