Is it just me, or are some people actually starting to get it? I think the younger generation realizes that company loyalty is dead, pensions are dead, having your income limited by an hourly wage is not enough, living above your means is no good, etc. Are people actually getting it, or am I just hanging around a certain subset of people?

Both I think.

You're likely hanging around a certain subset of people, AND the younger generation are starting to "get it".

It's trendy to found a tech startup.

It's trendy to be an entrepreneur or digital nomad.

A lot of awareness of earning money off your own back is being raised by the likes of:
  • MJ's books and books by many others.
  • Countless podcasts.
  • Air B'n'B.
  • Uber.
  • Even Tai Lopez and all the motivational business quotes cr@p in people's IG feeds.

What were your main takeaways?
for me, i paid more attention to your conversational skills and questioning. I thought the flow and the execution of it was fluid and highly commendable. There are a lot of folk out there that attempt to do such chats but fail to keep the flow fluid. The points spoken about where things that I already am aware of but the overall it was good presentation

Blimey. Glad I asked! I'm always (always!) surprised at people's takeaways from my recorded calls or videos.
