What we talked about

I look forward to these emails every week and was delighted to sit down with Dan in his office in London and have a chat.

We talked about doing what you love, the mindset required to embark on the path of entrepreneurship, the reality of ambition, ego, the reality of business success. 

We touched on mental health and Dan's experience of insomnia, eating to improve health and switching to a plant-based diet.

The mind being part of the brain, not the brain.

We moved into discussing the soul, cultural ethnicity, God, nature, and anti-religion.

Trusting your gut, and balancing gut-based decisions whilst working in a team. Coping with the 'shiny-new' disposition as an entrepreneur.

We discussed anxiety and defining what it is. I love how Dan describes it as an emotional experience you get from living in the future. So true.
