Blog – The Paradigm Shift Between, ‘We Businesses’ & ‘I Businesses’

Robert Kiyosaki was 1 of the first books I read on business. When I was barely coming out of high school organizing parties in Scarborough, several business friends at the time recommended it to me. My business partner at the time bought it first. Forcing me to stop procrastinating and buy it too.

I remember working the midnight shift for The CN Tower at the time, and therefore had to travel 2 hours back to Scarborough. Smart phones weren't relevant back then (I had the Mike from Telus at that point) so I read... on the bus. A routine I’d maintain with future 9 to 5 jobs. I can't remember the line, maybe it was several lines, or just the book itself, but I do remember the street. I was on Yonge and Eglinton of all places, early morning, zombie mode, just reading and BHAM. Everything turned white.

The McDonald's' sign, the Burger King sign, all the stores across the streets, even the movie theater and TD Bank were gone. I remember going home, opening my closet full of jerseys and throwing them all out (showing my age). I evolved beyond one place and started to see the world for what it is. A maze with a 1000 rats fighting for a dollar. And that maze... or at the very least, what makes this a maze are all the logos forcing us to conform to society norms.

What happened?! I went through a paradigm shift (one of many since then). This is the point I figured this all out. Consumerism. The left side of the cash flow quadrant is based on people who think in I. Thinking in I forces us to work for our money. Those are the people who work a 9 to 5 and or are self-employed. They think they can do everything themselves.

The other person thinks in, 'we'. Liberated from the constraints of the cash flow itself, understanding that leverage is the name of the game.

Those who think in I have higher narcissistic tendencies or presentations, because they will name the business after themselves, have their face plastered all over it and their spirit is synonymous with the idea. Those who think in WE understand that regardless of the idea, the system stays absolute, in service to everyone

Slack, One of the Most Important Communication Tools Right Now

Slack, One of the Most Important Communication Tools Right Now

Slack is in my opinion one of the most important apps of our generation. The application eliminates Email redundancy, allowing teams to stay organized and updated on projects. Giving individuals the freedom to execute instantly, and be effective with as little as their smart phones.

In the world of business, timely execution is next to godliness. You know… because time is money?! Slack works to instantly update the whole team and therefore allows for everyone to move forward.
