The Curious Case of 28

I have not often paid attention to numbers1. They’re just that, digits. Through my life I found affinity for multiple numbers, the beautiful triple 6 being one of them.

At younger age also 16, especially when playing the beautiful game called football. After 13, obviously, but not every team would allocate that number to a player.

Yet there is one number which has always had significance in life and it isn’t 420.

What I Learned from Being “Poor”

I was born in and grew up in a reasonable well off family. Not a rich family but not a poor family. We always had a mortgage, at least until the latter stages of my parents’ professional careers.

Yet, true Belgians we are, we also had some real estate. Some.

I wasn’t the rich kid in school nevertheless I was able to attend a slightly more expensive, top school in the country. Not a private school but one of the elite schools nevertheless.

Live to Tell

Life has its weird ways of reminding us that only few are immortal. Most of us aren’t.

I love music.

I love rock. I love techno. I love lo-fi. I have a pretty eclectic taste in music and while I wouldn’t ever admit it publicly, definitely not on the blockchain, I can at times even be heard listening to Adele at the Royal Albert Hall or Sting Live in Berlin. Just as well as to the Flying Pickets, a great British a capella band.

Most of all, I’ve lived what most would call an exciting life. Partying being a pillar for more years than many could ever imagine in their own life.

The Asshole Rule of Networking

I’m a connector.

The connector is a main role in any networking setup, in any circle. The connector is a middle person, somebody who curates connections making introductions and meetings easier to happen.

As a connector curation is my game. My skill is the ability to highlight excellence. My reputation is one of the main pillars of my raison d’être as a connector.

I find teams with a great idea and after some due diligence, I connect them to the people who may invest in them. Most often said due diligence is based on spending time with them and asking the right questions, setting little traps here and there to discover their thinking, their motivation, their drive, and even the risk they are willing to take.
