Lecture on Strategy #3: This coming Sunday, 25th March, we'll have our next Lecture on Strategy. This week will most likely be on the different money strategies and styles people employ throughout their lives. It should be a fascinating talk for identifying your own strong and weak points, and the people you would work with.
Note the location will be in the same neighborhood (Shuangjing on Line 10) but we'll be at a different building than the last two weeks. Email sebastian --at-- sebastianmarshall.com to RSVP and for details.
New this week: Roundtable. I'm going to lead a focused roundtable each week for people who attend. We won't film this, but I want to get a discussion going after each talk about, EG, goal-setting, financial planning, spurring creativity, getting more good people in your life, etc. I or one of the other attendees/guests will be leading a roundtable each week immediately following a talk if circumstances permit. This week, we'll do it and it should be good. So, if you've been waiting, come out this week.
If you're in Shanghai or know some awesome people who are, please email me. I've got some errands and connections to make in Shanghai sometime in the next few weeks, and I'd love to have some people to connect with there.
I'll be doing weekly lectures on strategy in whatever city I'm in, starting this coming week in Beijing, China.
I'll either lecture myself or have a guest -- we have a lot of talented people come through with backgrounds in technology, marketing, finance, sales, art, etc. Currently we've got six bedrooms across two apartments that we use to put up visiting guests and partners, and we have a lot of talented people coming through. Some mix of myself and guests/partners will speak on history, money, business, decisionmaking, statistics, etc.

I mentioned last week that I had a deadline which I was working towards. I'm going to explain a bit more about this because a) it's consuming my life these days and b) I have the feeling this is going to be the beginning of something big. If it is something big, I think it might be interesting to hear it from the beginning.
What is Y Combinator?
Y Combinator is a "startup accelerator". Since that doesn't mean much, I'll explain how it works. You and your cofounder apply to Y Combinator. If they like you and your startup idea, they give you around $20k in exchange for a small piece of your company.
