This year I was very privileged to have been in the company of a person with terrific business skills and an entrepreneurial mindset who is doing incredible things in their life, work and business.

When the word “entrepreneur” is used, we often think of some of the very successful people like Elon Musk or Richard Branson but these people are generally outside of our proximity so it was good to have got some knowledge and insights from an aspiring entrepreneur.

I was introduced to the concept of the Knowledge Industry and Personal Branding. I quickly started reading books, participating in some courses in preparation to do Project Next, hopefully in 2022

Below are some courses and books I have recently completed as part of some of my preparation to doing Project Next.
