Right now he is focused on educating his community members on Web3 space so that they can position themselves and their businesses moving forward into the new culture of technology.
“You can lose belief in everything else; just never lose belief in yourself. The truth of business that no one really talks about is that it’s deeply, deeply personal and that the challenges you face in business are going to affect you personally. They’re going to f*ck with your mind, your identity. They may make you question everything you know, right down to your deeply held beliefs. It’s important that in the midst of all the chaos that surrounds you, you’re able to remain centred, don’t let anyone or anything mess with your self belief. If you can continue to believe in yourself, despite the situation or circumstance you face, you’ll wake up everyday with a different kinda energy, a different kind of purpose… one that can carry you through any storm.” Pat shares.
