SHIFTING FINANCIAL PARADIGMS
One of the best ways to succeed in whatever we do is to learn from those who know more than we do about our given area of interest, and who have achieved more than we have in whatever area we’re seeking growth.
I’m super optimistic about the world these days.
I’m optimistic, primarily because I do not tune into the media of negativism and fear. Instead, I tune into interesting people who are living extraordinary lives, and I learn from them daily.
There are thousands of inspiring people of all ages, in new creative endeavors.

Many of the most inspiring people I consider my teachers and mentors are Generation X and Y entrepreneurs, such as Patrick Donohoe—a Gen X-er. These are the 25-45-something year olds who are changing paradigms, working outside the box and thinking expansively from an impressive innate wisdom.
Patrick Donohoe is one such on a mission to empower people with financial education so they can make better choices and have the freedom which comes from greater financial wealth.

It’s always good to consider multiple opinions and multiple perspectives. Patrick Donohoe
Patrick Donohoe: If you just have one perspective on something, you’re taking a gamble as to whether it’s right or wrong for you. So it’s good that there’s a lot of critics.
