Today I am using my Penny Dreadful deck for the first time. It is the same one used in the Emmy winning TV show. Last summer I saw this for $5 at a pop up shop, and had a “shut up and take my money” moment. I don’t know why I’ve never used this deck before today.

I am at a crossroads in my life. If I want a different result, I need a different method. If I want a better harvest, I need to shake up the status quo and plant different seeds. Not just better seeds, different seeds. What I have been doing my whole life, what my family has done their whole lives. I have an incredible amount of power to have a better outcome, but it starts with doing things differently now.
I love my family. My parents were hard workers who sacrificed everything for their kids. We didn’t have a lot of excess as kids, but we had enough to always have a roof over our heads, food on the table, clothes on our back, and gas in the car. But they always played it safe. And when you have young kids, sometimes you have to. But I want a different outcome. I don’t want to work a job I hate for decades to earn a meager paycheque and end up with a broken body and no savings. I want to do what I love, and have wealth, and not be so damned worried all the time about numbers. I need to do things differently. I like money, but my life was never meant to be about just chasing pieces of green paper. I will do what I love, and make a very good living doing it.
But working hard is the cost of entry to live that life. It’s just a matter of working hard at the right thing. I can take those lessons of hard work from my parents, and apply that to my business.
Things need to be shaken up, and I need to take risks. Which is why I am leaving London.
