This is the first part of the second Q&A session we’ve had!
In this part of Q&A #2, I’ve taken up questions that were related to Investing, Finances, Skill Sets, Purpose, and Networking.
Q1: I want to become a world-class speaker & networker. I can talk to people and engage them 1 on 1 but with groups, I’m a mess. If you could give someone like me one piece of advice to help free me from the psychological feedback loop of fear and anxiety, what would it be?

Q5: What are the few things you would tell a guy who is trying to get things done and achieve something of his own by his own but has had a few rough years (getting dumped by the girl i was doing everything for, flunking out of engineering in 3rd year). I was an alcoholic and a weed addict but I am clean now.

Q6: I don’t buy the ‘follow your passion and the money will come’ idea, but how does one find something to pursue and master if there’s no interest in it? Similarly, if one doesn’t have any passions or skills, how can one go about choosing a path to pursue ?

Q7: How to find one’s calling? I am trying to do that for last 13-14 months but struggling to. I am good in programming but it gets boring after some time so I think that’s not my calling. I have an interest in finance, entrepreneurship, teaching but it’s not a high level of interest that I can do it full time and leave everything else. You can say combine all fields – programming, finance, entrepreneurship, etc but then I don’t understand which job/task is the combination of them all.

Q8: I have a degree in Finance & live in South Africa. I’m always confused between these 2 asset classes: real estate or shares. I currently invest in both but they often say to excel in something one needs to focus on one thing only.
