What Would Ted Lasso Do?

Issue 410

by David Wells – Nashville TN


I may be a bit late to the Ted Lasso party, but better late than never. The US in the last year has binged on Tiger King, The Last Dance, and concluded the fall with Queen’s Gambit.  But as we start 2021, Apple TV’s first (and only) season of Ted Lasso just hits the right note.  The show tells the story of an American football coach who heads to England to coach a premier league soccer team. 

Lasso’s humility and downright optimism feel so refreshing in the current climate, and challenges us all to take a step back from skepticism and snark, and choose to see a brighter path forward.  Can’t say enough great things about this show.

My Book:

When Anything is Possible – Wealth and the Art of Strategic Living

However wealth arrives – whether made or inherited, it can be a disorienting and worrying experience. When Anything is Possible is meant to be a guidebook about how to engage thoughtfully and strategically with wealth.  Doing so requires a person to articulate 3 key items –  Wealth Structure, Wealth Identity and ultimately a Wealth Strategy.  The book walks through each of these items in great depth, and guides the reader through a process to develop each.
