Show Notes

I've often used the words presence and awareness interchangeably—but they're really not. They're two distinctly different things, and in this episode, I discuss the difference, and talk about my recent experiments with awareness.

090: The Dangers of Overcorrecting Your Mistakes

Sometimes we don't learn from our mistakes at all, and we keep repeating them again and again. And sometimes we overcorrect our mistakes so much, that we just replaced one mistake with another mistake.  Shownotes: https://steliefti.com/dangers-of-overcorrecting/  Connect with me: https://steliefti.com  https://twitter.com/steli  https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/  ...

021: The only asset worth investing in during this crisis

Many friends and fellow entrepreneurs come to me for investment advice during this crisis. The first thing you need to understand is that I'm not an investor. So don't put too much stock into my advice. That being said—I do have strong opinions. There are a lot of attractive opportunities out there nowadays: gold, cryptocurrencies, foreign currencies, certain stocks that took a dive due to the crisis but will almost certainly come back strong once things get better. I believe for most of the people that are going to read this, there's really only one thing you should invest in right now: You yourself. Unless you yourself are a skilled investor, I don't think that you should make big investment decisions during this crisis in anything other than yourself. How can you invest in yourself, and grow? Maybe this is the time to build a side business. Write that book, and promote it. Experiment. Learn something new. Stretch yourself beyond what your current limitations. Level one area of your live up. If you already had a side business, start investing into ads, make the design look real slick, sharpen your copy, ramp up your marketing, improve your product, sharpen your skills by signing up for a course or finding a coach. But invest into something that's actually yours, and that doesn't rely on a currency moving one way or another, or a big multinational corporation hitting certain revenue numbers... invest into yourself. It'll not only save you a lot of anxiety when things don't go the way you expect them, but also sharpen your focus on the things that really matter: those things that you can actually impact yourself. As always—I'd love to hear from you. Hit me up ...

038: I visited an alternative healer

Here's another very personal episode. If you're looking for sales, startup, and business advice, skip this episode, it's not going to be a good use of your time. If you want to get to know me better as a human being, particularly some of my private struggles and the inner work I do, then maybe this is for you. However, be aware that it's another raw recording: an unstructured, meandering conversation without a clear ending or an actionable takeaway. I talk about my challenges with happines, visiting an alternative healer, never feeling at home anywhere, and many other things I'd usually not share publicly. So why am I sharing it now? For one, look at the name of the podcast. What you hear in this recording is inner work in progress—and that's not always pretty. And secondly, it's easier to share this now with you because this was recorded in the last week of July—and a lot has happened since. I do feel happy. I have a vision for a place that I'll make my home where I truly feel at home. I'm much more in touch with my own feelings. And finally, after I published Episode 31: Listening to myself: A bad day many of you told me that sharing my inner struggles helped you.   Shownotes: https://steliefti.com/i-visited-an-alternative-healer/ Connect with me: https://twitter.com/steli https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/    ...
