The Weekly with Fred Schebesta #2: Why you shouldn't chase

Today marks a special day. Frank Restuccia, Jeremy Cabral and I have been listed on the AFR Young Rich List.

Being on the list is a product of all the persistence and creativity and ultimately it’s about the crew at Finder. The crew make it happen. We just provide them with a great opportunity to build something incredible.

While I’m honoured to be on the list, to me, it’s still day one. It’s one of hopefully many signposts along the way to reaching where we want to take Finder.

Read about Jeremy’s incredible journey so far in the AFR.

My goal is to become a phoenix — something that continually reinvents itself and gets stronger and stronger over time, I explained to Smart Company today. Our mission is to survive and endure beyond the next 100 years.

If you haven’t prepared for a huge Christmas, it’s too late.

It’s Black Friday today and shoppers are spending up big. I think it’s going to be the biggest Christmas ever. Why will it be so big? Because no one is travelling, everyone’s cancelling their holidays and they will be buying stuff to do at home. 

I submit that it’s going to be stupid big!

If you haven’t prepared for the rush it’s too late. Start preparing now for growth in the New Year instead.
