Free the with Matthew Setter

In this episode, Karl and I have an absolute blast of a conversation, one which got off to quite an unexpected roller-coaster beginning. We talk not specifically about any tech, as such, but rather on life and career, and how important it is to live and work with intention.

Show Notes

It was a pleasure to sit down and chat with Karl for this episode which went off on such a massive tangent at the start. Despite that, we felt it was worth keeping, as sometimes it's worth doing things a little differently. If you want to skip to the more tech/work/career aspect of the episode, jump up to about the 21 or 32 minute mark. 

Some points from the episode:
  • Should people be paid based on where they live or should they be paid on the role and its value to the company/organisation?
  • How do you make the mental shift from employee to business owner when creating a business?
  • What do you really want to do all day (5 days a week, 44-odd weeks a year)?
  • When do you work best?
  • Where do you work best?
  • Work with intention.
  • If you decided to start a business, the first few (or more) likely won't be your best.
  • Enjoy the journey as well as the little wins.
