***Achievement unlocked*** Episode #100 is here and what a super special episode it is!
A couple of weeks ago on an episode of Fast Fix Friday called Why I Do What I do, I spoke of a touching email I had received from Alex Henderson, one of the alums of Lemonade Stand, a 2 day kids entrepreneurship program that we run to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs.
The budding young startup founder wrote to let me in on how the program had opened his eyes to the possibilities and inspired him to start a business and that he had gone one step further and already just launched.
As it is now the school holiday season here in Melbourne, Australia, I couldn’t help but reach out and invite Alex to appear on Future Squared to not only inspire other parents and their kids, but basically anybody out there who has made excuses in business and in life - age, lack of money and resources, no experience, no networks - these all come with very low barriers that can be overcome with, Alex tells us, nothing more than an internet connection, a laptop and the right attitude.
And with that, I’d just like to say thank you for listening to Future Squared in 2016. It has been an absolutely massive year for the team on a number of fronts and we simply could not have achieved what we have without you, our loyal audience.
I hope that this show has inspired you to new heights in both your personal and professional life and look forward to bringing you much more #inspo in 2017 as we set out to publish another 100 episodes before the year closes out.
Until next time, enjoy your new years eve shenanigans, whatever it is you get up to. I’m off to spend some time attempting to kitesurf while doing my best to avoid facepalming the water. See you in 2017!
I hope you enjoyed this episode. If you’d like to receive a weekly email from me, complete with reflections, books I’ve been reading, words of wisdom and access to blogs, ebooks and more that I’m publishing on a regular basis, just leave your details at www.futuresquared.xyz/subscribe and you’ll receive the very next one.
