12½ Truth Bombs

Share this:

In this very special episode of The McFuture, we’ll bust 12½* modern myths about money, business, education, tech and government. Many of our assumptions deserves ruthless scrutiny. Questioning assumptions is how we innovate and shape our future.  It’s how we demand more from ourselves, employers and leaders.  

Some of these will definitely trigger you. But a little controversy can’t hurt, right…?? (If you’re a patron, post feedback in the Patreon and I’ll respond online or in the next episode.)
