Saw Madeline Albright speak

My current interest in politics: 0.0000001%

I’m sure that will change throughout life, but currently it’s super low.

HOWEVER…..I do find the process of running a campaign fascinating.  It involves:

  • Fundraising hundreds of millions of dollars.
  • Forming alliances.
  • Playing strategies.
  • A bunch of shady “scratch-my-back-and-I’ll-scratch-your-back” deals happen.

Plus I think this is what super rich people do.

It seems when each economic class moves upwards, they discover something:

Poor: “Oh wow! I can learn valuable skills that will make me more money.”

Middle Class: “Oh wow! I can create my own income and don’t have to work for somebody else.”

Rich: “Oh wow! I can actually switch out the people who make the rules.”

For this reason I went to go see Madeline Albright (former secretary of state) speak at a private house.  I had to pay money to attend:

February 2016 Goals

Here are the February 2016 Goals:

For the last part of 2015 and much of January I was in New Zealand and Australia, so it’s awesome to be back in Austin getting work done again.

Thanks to the power of autoresponders (and my business manager forcing me to do pre-work all of December) I didn’t have to do any work on kopywritingkourse for 29 days straight and it still grew!

My work output during travel time is highly inconsistent, so it was a nice feeling to NOT have to do anything for a long time (though I still wrote a great deal on the looonngg plane rides).

Originally almost all of my Sydney trip was rained out (random 4 straight days of rain), so I extended it by a bit, got to meet up with a bunch of people I didn’t realize were in Australia, and got to surf in Australia on Bondi beach which was fun!

All my 2015 yearly goals were hit TWO DAY’S BEFORE NEW YEAR’S when I was in Auckland.  ’twas a close one!
