Deep insights into being more successful in today's radically disruptive age
On April 21, Tiago Forte, the author of the Building a Second Brain online course, and Chuck Frey chatted on Zoom about the ways in which it can help you level up your thinking and thrive in our disruptive world.
So much has changed in the last year that creating a personal knowledge base is more important than ever. It can arm you what what you need to take advantage of a wealth of opportunities that are emerging now.
Tiago shared some INCREDIBLE insights, which you can check out in the video recording of our call here. This is an excellent indicator of the quality of learning in the BASB course!
