In this week’s episode, we interview Malcolm and Simone Collins, co-authors of the book The Pragmatist's Guide To Life: A Guide to Creating Your Own Answers to Life's Biggest Questions. As humans, we get to choose what we believe and who we want to be. This book is a ruthlessly pragmatic guide to creating your own answers to life's biggest questions.

 

Each of this book's four chapters covers one of the most important questions a person must ask themselves:

  • What is the purpose of my life?
  • How can I best realize the purpose of my life?
  • Who do I want to be?
  • How do I want other people to think of me?

Rather than give you answers to these questions, this guide provides a framework that helps you develop your own answers while equipping you with the neuroscientific tools necessary to transform yourself into whomever you choose to be.

 

Originally a neuroscientist focused on brain-computer interface and the evolution of human cognition (his work is on display at the Smithsonian), Malcolm Collins felt he could learn more about the way humans interact with the world and each other by pursuing an MBA at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. There he met Simone, his wife and co-author, who at the time was Director of Marketing at HubPages.com, managing a team of 20,000 freelancers. Together they co-founded the art commission marketplace ArtCorgi.com, after which Malcolm became Director of Strategy at South Korea's most desired source of early-stage VC capital and Simone earned her graduate degree from Cambridge while working in VC. The couple now runs a number of travel companies (with a focus on Travelmax), splitting their time between North American headquarters in Miami, FL and South American offices in Lima, Peru.

 

The book was created as the work of a nonprofit institution (http://pragmatist.guide/), dedicated to helping people think through the big questions in life without leading them to a specific answer.  All proceeds from the sale of the book go to the nonprofit, and not the authors.

It’s easy to get trapped into the old paradigm that we must trade dollars for hours or only get income from one source. A side hustle can open you up to a whole new world of possibility – more financial freedom, more time freedom, more creativity, and more fun! Whether you think of yourself as an entrepreneur or not, we hope this episode gives you some new ideas, inspiration, and motivation to create more passion in your life with a fun side hustle. We also secretly hope it becomes your full-time dream job...that is after all, what happened for us and there’s no reason it can’t happen for you!
