Today I’m happy to bring you quite an eclectic conversation, but one that is sure to contain many moments of wisdom.
This is especially true if you are interested in business, living around the world, or adopting an effective mindset for succeeding in the 21st century.
I am joined today by Martin Erlic. He is the co-founder of the company Selo Oils (https://selooils.com/), which makes premium quality extra virgin olive oil from his village, or Selo, by the Sea in Croatia.
But many of you who know of Martin will likely know him through Twitter. If you don’t follow him I suggest you do, @SeloSlav. But it is here where I was first introduced to him and here where I saw him, with great intentionality, start and grow his company.
If I were to offer my analysis, I would say the 240 character version of Martin is not the same as the conversational version. But isn’t that true of us all?
So, after reading his tweets for nearly a year, and then speaking for nearly 2 hours, I can say I greatly enjoyed the conversation and look forward to many more.
While we all have our attention on multinational corporations, there are millions of almost invisible individuals making some truly great products, services, and companies. Maybe we should be paying more attention to them…
And similarly, while we all have our attention on New York, Silicon Valley, Beijing, and Brussels, there are both innovations and ancient truths coming out of small towns, forgotten regions, and even the Selo by the Sea. Maybe we should be paying more attention to these parts of the world…
As always, whenever or wherever you are listening, thank you.
I hope you enjoy episode 21 of the Dialogues with my guest Martin Erlic.
