“Geremy, you just resigned—what are you going to do next???”
I’m going to Dubai!!
One of my most transformative life experiences happened back in 2010 when I flew to Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Puerto Rico, and Florida on an “In Search of Inspiration” tour. As a result of the ideas and inspiration received on these trips, I launched Peculiar PPL and I discovered a strategy that brought me many steps closer to getting my dream jet. Now that I’ve started a new chapter of life, I felt that another “search of inspiration” trip was necessary to inspire the vision and strategy for the next few years.
Why Dubai? Besides a great opportunity opening up for me to visit, I’ve always viewed it as the best place on Earth to see a manifestation of a huge vision in a short time period. As someone who also has a huge vision of positively impacting the world in a big way, this was important for me to see in-person.
So, after a long 12 hour flight, I landed here late last week with my cousin (who I brought along as a super-belated Christmas gift). Over the next few days, I’ll provide updates of day-to-day sights and scenes, starting with these:
I ordered these fries thinking that they’d be just as beautifully presented as the rest of the food from the restaurant. When the waiter put the dish on the table, I thought that they mistakenly poured too much seasonings on the fries. After disregarding the appearance, I tasted one and my tastebuds rejoiced in the name of the almighty potato.
