Poor Charlie's Almanack (I also like Principles by Dalio)
What's your favorite non-business book?
Which founders or startups do you most admire?
Anyone working on something that

What's the best way for people to get in touch with you?
firstname.lastname@example.org Strong preference for short, easy to understand emails. I'd rather get 3 separate short easy to understand emails than one long one that takes me a minute to figure out what I'm being asked.
What words of wisdom do you live by?
If something isn't going how I'd like it to go, it's probably because I haven't figured out what I want and *decided* (decided as opposed to *hope*) to make that happen.
What aspects of your work are you most passionate about?
Making the future more fun/interesting/happy/thriving, on a timescale where I'm around to see the results.
