Previous Talk Intro
Hello + Welcome
Story of my past 12 years
Expectations of startups and lambos etc
Working hard but not moving forwards
It wasn't right, I knew there must be a way, but no one was helping me find it
Everyone seemed to be so focused on the immediacy of their lives + missing the bigger picture
Friends supported energy but could only tell me if I wanted it so badly I'd have to go and build it
George Bernard Shaw quote
Found myself age 25 quitting my job with nothing lined up, knowing only my belief in something different and I would bring this life I could visualise into being
Journey since, and the realisation that maybe I was on to something
Previous Talk What Is An Adventrepreneur
Mountains vs. City
All know what entrepreneurs are & do & where
Identify opportunity > Create growth
Problems with this
Who here runs a business?
You know what I mean, right?
Strength of adventrepreneurs is they find balance
Ambition alongside the life they value
Celebrating hard work is important
What do they normally look like in the city?
Imagine what those in the city think
We now know the variances in productivity - especially in relation to happiness
Don't confuse happiness with fun
We can see clear benefits to Entrepreneurs making a life for themselves somewhere that resonates with who they are
Of course there are challenges - but as with any great venture, these are there to be overcome!
Previous Talk: Re-Frame To Bigger Picture
The Important Part
We recognise the benefits to the founders of this perspective
But what about the people they bring with them? Messages they send?
Staff. Clients. Friends.
How different do these look when we start accepting adventrepreneur businesses
This is important, because many people need a better balance in their lives
We are having fun, we aren't happy
But they don't know it! Those of you joining us for the first time will hopefully discover what those of us here - and those of us returning - already know
Some people always need security
The shared risk and personality profiles of adventurous minds and those who create
If you have the courage for adventure or a strong enough desire to create, you owe it to those that don't. To open their eyes!
We are the ones who build. Who drive change. It is this that first made us walk out of caves in the mountains to build cities. And now, it's that which should bring us back to them.
I dream of a culture shift of parents and schools
Close with Ayn Rand quote.
Life is short. We should celebrate it. Don't let it wait.

That they 'get it'
Either entertain or having a message worth sharing with your audience

Better if you can find ones beyond yourself
