Stoa Digest #06: People matter most.
You can earn loads of money, but if you're not surrounded by the people you'd like to share it with the most, it won't matter as much.
Highlight of the Week
Finance 🤝 Freedom
This past Thursday we got some serious words of wisdom from a financieur(finance connoisseur) himself - Mr. Pratik Oswal.
If there’s ever been a more opportune time to know about finances, we haven’t been this living & alert through it before.
With so many advances, changes in tech & money out there, we got some very applicable knowledge from Mr. Oswal on how we can possibly grow our wealth.
It just probably would’ve been nicer if we were younger, but it will still have returns even now.
Better late than never.
Let’s Rewind: Last Week at Stoa 📆
While, over the weekend everyone clocked some learning hours in!
This’ what happened over the week.
finished their Second Session with Nihal for Ikiguide, and you’ll see a few of them on Discord being very aware of what they took away from this workshop.
You could go talk to them about it, potentially.
They were also hypothetical bread-sellers and lost a fair amount of money.
Guess what module this was? 🤔
on the other hand, learned how to strategise their future companies better.
I see a possible collaboration to improve the sales of our bakers soon! 📈
