One of the drawbacks of living in such a beautiful place is that it is rural and hard to get to. I don't get to see my family very often.. A sister, her husband and one daughter visited last Wednesday. Such a wonderful day for my wife and I.
Dick, my brother-in-law, and I got to know each other much better. He heard about my skill at creating companies and I heard about the companies that he created.
He said that the one thing that helped him more than anything was two words. He met people who knew what he wanted to know and he would say "Teach me."
That's exactly how education works in the real world after your elementary education is over. I was very impressed with the things that he learned over the years and the companies he created. We both decided that it would have been good for us to have known each other over the years.
So, why is a picture of Michelangelo's Moses here? I guess I'm not sure, he was an amazing inventor, a massively successful entrepreneur. One of his main phrases was "Teach me." This year is the 500th anniversary of his death. Amazing.
If you are one of those people who are afraid you'll look silly or ignorant if you ask someone to teach you. I guess you're probably right. If you can get past that, you're likely to learn some very valuable lessons. If you fill out the form on this page and ask me to teach you, I will have a conversation with you for free to see if it would be a good idea for us to work together.
