What to expect from 2023

In 2023 we’re doing it slightly differently, Alex is traveling around the world, trying to meet the most interesting people possible to make sense of their business and life lessons and how we can apply them to our own adventures.

You can expect more interviews (face to face and remote) with those who have figured it out and those who are pushing boundaries to create something new. Alex will also be sharing his own learnings of remote working and the concepts we’re looking to explore with Growth Gurus.

One item that Alex learned this year that has really stuck with him, is that in 5 years, 80% of the revenue generated will be made by technology that doesn’t exist today. Let that sink in: in the year 2028, 80% of the revenue generated will be made by technology that doesn’t exist today.

Alex believes that 2023 is a time to become aware of the age of AI and how you can leverage it and not fear it. We should all look at it like a tool. How can it help you do your job faster and better? How can you use it to buy back precious time? Currently, his view is that this is the equivalent of the invention of electricity, or the global adoption of the internet or email, we are entering a new industrial revolution, and it’s going to be his goal to find out how people around the world are looking to take advantage of these massive business and life changes in 2023.

So if you’re interested in building a better life for yourself and your time, Let’s make things, make sense together!
