Embrace Struggle | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Episode_008



Today, I discuss how struggle, generally perceived as a negative, can actually be a positive in one’s life if one embraces it to learn the power of persistence and how to use lessons learned from overcoming obstacles to build honor, character, and integrity as essential components of one’s personality.

The Great Deception & Plato’s Cave | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Episode_007



In Episode 7, I discuss how the story of Plato’s Cave and Siddhartha apply to today’s world more than ever and that the inability to distinguish between perception and reality is a deliberately manufactured affliction designed by the world’s wealthy. I further discuss the fact that it will truly be difficult for one to understand the unfolding financial market crashes in 2018-2019 without truly understanding the lessons of Plato’s Cave.

Think and Understand Truth | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Episode_006



In Episode 6, I discuss how those in control of creating the financial, religious, academic and career paradigms that exist in modern society encourage us not to think through distracting us through mindless entertainment and social media options, but if we can sort through all the distractions, the truth will set us free. I address how this topic is relevant across a broad spectrum of topics, including cryptocurrencies and bitcoin, the exploitation of human trafficking networks and the disposable fashion industry, the systemic sexual harassment problem of the global entertainment industry, the NFL protests and Colin Kapaernick, and even issues of parenting.
