#150 Reflecting on 2019, Setting new personal rules, 2020 Visions

As challenging as 2019 was for me, the last decade was exceptionally good for me. I can only recall a few unpleasant moments. In fact, if I had to draw a chart for it, it would look like a straight verticle line from a distance. I decided to end the year alone to pause and reflect. I ended up in the mountains where I hiked and made lists of what I did right and where I failed myself in 2019.  This episode is about that experiment. I share some of those lists, I also share some of the new things I identified in 2019 that you can apply in your personal life or hustle.

#145 John McAfee - Governance, Wealth, Polygamy, Family and Freedom

This podcast is brought to you by Divi Project John McAfee is by far one of the most interesting, as well as the most controversial public figures today. He’s a British-American computer programmer and businessman. He founded the software company McAfee Associates in 1987 and ran it until 1994, when he resigned from the company. McAfee Associates achieved early success as the creators of McAfee, the first commercial antivirus software, and the business now produces a range of enterprise security software. The company was purchased by Intel in 2011 and spun back out in 2017 with TPG Capital owning a majority stake, though the software has always borne the McAfee brand name. McAfee's wealth peaked in 2007 at $100 million before his investments plummeted in the financial crisis of 2007–2008. McAfee is also a political activist, who sought the 2016 Libertarian Party nomination for President of the United States in the 2016 election, losing to former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson. John McAfee has become one of the best-known Bitcoin supporters but his story goes far deeper than being a crypto expert. He is considered to be one of the most controversial figures in the world of crypto and technology, with countless ups and downs throughout his life. His life filled with fascinating anecdotes, disputed events, drug abuse, several arrests, and return to the public scene as a well-respected crypto soothsayer and surprising twists that have brought him to where he is now.   In this exclusive with John McAfee, we discussed the following: His early life McAfee Antivirus Software The idea of freedom Loss of his fortune following the 2007 - 2008 economic collapse The reason why he moved to Belize for a while Wealth and responsibilities His experience marrying and with living seven wives His allegations about pumping coins His upcoming movie, King of the Jungle.
