Modern Mindset: Queen of Resilience
Adam Cox interviews Scarlett O'Connor, AKA The Queen of Resilience, and Miss Atlas winner about her journey from being abandoned by a narcissistic mother and alcoholic father at the age of 12, to being in a coma as a result of police brutality to becoming a beacon of hope for many. She did'nt allow a very difficult childhood and adolescence to get her down, but has succeeded through sheer determination. A quote from the Rocky movie, 'it's not how hard you can hit, but how hard you can be hit and still get up again' describes her journey well, and she's earned the title 'Queen of Resilience' from friends and colleagues who know her well. This is an inspiring example of how everyone has great potential, and how important it is to retain a positive mindset for the future, whatever the challenges.

This Is Money: Is a little bit of inflation really such a bad thing?

This Is Money: Is a little bit of inflation really such a bad thing?
The UK’s official inflation figure more than doubled to 1.5 in April, it emerged this week, as the stronger than expected recovery continued to push up the cost of living. Meanwhile a wave of demand is meeting a shortage of supply for some items, sparking fears of an inflationary spike. But while this is bad news for the pound in your pocket – which will buy less – and for savers, who will see their measly interest rates fail to keep up with how inflation erodes their cash, wasn’t the whole point of all that money printing and rate cutting to get a stronger recovery and inflation back towards the 2% target? Georgie Frost, George Nixon and Simon Lambert look at why inflation has become a hot topic, how it will affect savers and investors, and what it could mean for the game we all thought we could stop playing for some time: when will interest rates rise? George runs through the impact for savers, who now can't find an account that beats inflation, but he explains a trick to get a better rate through laddering; and Simon discusses what inflation could mean for investors and why the jam-tomorrow growth stocks that have delivered over the past decade may not be the ones to hold for the next ten years. Or will they? We also discuss moonshot investing and how backing disruptive companies that if they get it right, can absolutely take off and compound spectacular gains, has paid off for investors such as Scottish Mortgage. Simon highlights the academic research showing why most stocks don't make money and the most successfully often fall by 40%, as Scottish Mortgage's James Anderson highlighted in his recent fund manager's note. But is this attitude the same as that of the bitcoin true believers, who have been having their faith tested again this week?

The Hypnotist: Sisu Hypnosis - Extraordinary Determination and Courage
Adam Cox creates a hypnosis session to enable you to experience, cultivate, and grow the Finnish quality known as Sisu. While there is no literal translation of Sisu it is widely accepted to be described as stoic determination, tenacity of purpose, grit, bravery, resilience, and hardiness and is held by Finns themselves to express their national character. It is also perceived to be more prolonged and so more like a quality or characteristic than a brief emotional state. This hypnosis session will help you become one of the few people that have sisu, and will help you inspire others to adopt this quality.
