I don't know if this is true… But if it is, this is one of the scarier things I've heard in the last year…
Take a look:
Ten Principles for a Black Swan-Proof World by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
So after a somewhat-weird-time-consuming-few-days meeting with tax accountants, financial advisors, insurance agents — along with the normal household duties — I am finally back to work.
I've had a small breakthrough on my YA novel (tentatively titled: The Arena), and have FINALLY found it's center and path. Hopefully I'll have that translated into a novel in a couple of months.
Along with writing, my wonderful wife Kari and I are looking to start at least two new business ventures in the coming months. I don't want to say too much, as we don't have all our ducks in a row yet, but when things are more in line, I'll let you all know. Wish us luck!
A friend sent me this video. WIth the exception of getting interrupted multiple times, I found this a very smart interview with Nassim Nicholas Taleb.
Check it out!
