How To Raise Successful Kids To Be Winners
Check Out: My Integrated Life Micro-Doc - http://bit.ly/2Z5hSvM -- As a 3x successful business-owner and founder, my biggest fears about having kids were: * I would be an absent father * I would accidentally raise entitled kids Those two thoughts made me sweat. I was terrified. I was good at business... but what about being a good father? What if I messed it up? I thought maybe my obsessive drive meant I shouldn’t ever have children. Kids aren’t something you can quit if it goes wrong. So when my wife Renée fell pregnant, it lit a burning need in me to get good at the one thing I felt afraid of. I NEEDED to be an authentic and present father for my children. I had to get good at this. I hired the best mentors, coaches and parenting experts, I took the classes, read the books… I trained. Hard. And I’m not perfect. Many of my lessons weren’t taught to me from a book, they were learned from mistakes. But today I’d like to share a new video with the most valuable lessons I can offer you. Here is how to raise successful kids to be winners. My kids are the biggest blessing that’s ever happened to me. I wasn’t expecting it… I was so afraid about not giving them the right life that I never stopped to think about how much love and light they would bring into mine When Renée got pregnant, we were living in San Francisco and I had just closed a round of $1.6M in funding for my company Clarity. 3 months after the birth of our first son we found out we were having another. Max and Noah are 11 months apart, and I LOVE my boys with all my heart. That’s why this video is so important to me. I’m proud to say I overcame my fears and I am 100% a family man AND an entrepreneur at the same time. But the only way I got there was by truly living the lessons I discovered and shared in today’s video. Check it out and drop a comment with your best parenting advice. We all could use it. -- Dan Martell is a serial entrepreneur, an investor in 40+ startups like Intercom, Udemy, and Unbounce and the creator of SaaS Academy, helping over 500 B2B SaaS founders scale faster.

The Case for Crypto with Bundle's Yele Bademosi
In this episode, we talk about cryptocurrency with the Co-Founder and CEO of Bundle, and the Founding Partner of Microtraction, Yele Bademosi. Beyond trading and price volatility, what is it about crypto that excites Yele and so many others on the continent? Throughout the series of episodes, we're exploring the entrepreneurs in start-ups digitizing informal and fragmented industries on the continent. And despite the technological underpinnings of cryptocurrency as a whole, many of the buying and selling processes and use cases of crypto today are still quite informal and fragmented. In this episode, we hear from Yele about the work Bundle is doing to build products and use cases that make crypto more accessible, affordable and help bring it into the mainstream. For those less familiar with crypto terminology, we have also published a crypto glossary to define many of the terms used in this episode. Check it out here: https://theflip.africa/crypto-glossary/ 4:21 - First question, on consumer education in largely cash-based economies. 10:36 - The macro dynamics - such as devaluation of the Nigerian Naira - that help make the case for crypto adoption. 14:41 - Bundle's origin story and the goals for the business. 20:22 - An exploration of use cases for crypto beyond trading and speculation. 26:47 - A conversation on DeFi, or decentralized finance. 32:42 - On a grand scale, what kind of impact can crypto - and Bundle - have in Africa? This episode is part of our conversational series sponsored by MFS Africa. MFS Africa's competition is with cash, and throughout this series, we'll feature other startups and entrepreneurs who are digitizing, better organizing, and aggregating analog and fragmented industries.
