Week 64 โ€“ Getting schooled

 ·  โ˜• 5 min read

The last week feels a bit short, maybe because I published my last blog just 3 days ago ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyway, I am on time this week and that is all that matters.

Personal Highlights

So this week, I donโ€™t have a lot to share, but I do have interesting stuff to share, and what is that you might ask ๐Ÿ˜ผ

Well Well Well!

Last week I didnโ€™t remember if I mentioned it or not that I put out a tweet to which some guy replied and we connected on DM only to find out that he wanted to mentor me and few of my friends.

To which I agreed and we started with the call on Thursday and it was amazing.

Maybe because there are only 4 of us but regardless he was able to share the stuff which I havenโ€™t heard anywhere else and do keep in mind that I have consumed a lot of freelancing stuff in the past but still, what he said was very to the point with whatever I have been thinking about the stuff.

Clearly, he has a lot of experience, and years of freelancing have made him a very good speaker as well. However, it is kinda crazy that he has such a small following on social media.

He can be like the next Varun Mayya easily. I hope he doesnโ€™t read all these and gets offended or something ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ’€

But all in all, I very much needed the mentorship and the feedback from him and it’s going to continue for 5 more days. Let’s see how valuable his feedbacks are going to be ๐Ÿคฒ

Business Updates

Regarding the meeting and feedback from Harklash, I will be changing a lot of things and Octalancer might take a bit longer to function the way I want it to.

By the way, this week I was in another meeting with a Crypto startup founder from the US, and even though I wasnโ€™t able to directly sell to him, I hope I can do something for him in the future.

It was my first time talking to someone from the US and also he was quite old and experienced ๐Ÿค So I was a bit nervous too, but you know I have this shield of overconfidence which protects me from such scenarios ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Thoughts from the past week

The podcast returns after it went missing for a week

In this episode, I talk about my pov on Deep Conversation

Listen to it on all audio streaming platforms from here

Bonus Thought : Here is small twitter thread that I wrote today about my current phase in life


Social Media updates

No update. I was very less active this week.

My Favourites from the Week

Blogs/Articles ๐Ÿ“‘

Did not read.

Twitter Threads ๐Ÿงต

Did not come across.

Book Highlights๐Ÿ“š

Did not read as I am already consuming a lot from the freelance thingy and I donโ€™t like flooding my brain with a lot of information.


Movies ๐ŸŽฅ

I re-watched the entire
Iron Man Franchise from 1 to 3

Because I wanted to refresh some of my memory before What Ifโ€™s episode ft. Iron Man comes out. So, I watched Iron Man 1 before that and rest of the movies afterwards.

Series ๐Ÿ“บ

What If S1E6
It was such a crappy episode that I had to watch the old Iron Man movies to not only refresh but also wipe this episode from my mind ๐Ÿคฎ

Tech Tip ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™‚โ€

Create Zoom and Meet custom virtual background using Canva instead of using the default ones, if you use them.

Songs ๐ŸŽถ

Eiffel 65 - Blue
Canโ€™t believe they used this song at the starting of Iron man 3.

Podcast(s) ๐ŸŽ™

Memes/Edits from the last week ๐Ÿ’

๐Ÿ‘‰ Here ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

Goal(s) for the next week ๐Ÿฅ…

  • Make an offer page for any particular service
    [which will happen anyway, thanks to the regular calls from the freelance challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ]

  • Talk to more experienced people to learn more.
    I have been fortunate enough to talk to like 4 high net worth people this week and I absolutely loved talking to them.

    It’s crazy how much we can learn from networking with people who are higher up in the game of life ๐Ÿคฏ

    “Networking, so far, has been pleasantly surprising”. I did not expect what popular YouTubers say is just common sense for most of them XD
