Geoff Blades - Getting What You Work For
Coming from a working class background, Geoff learned from an early age what it takes to afford a better pair of shoes. You need to work for the things that you want and you need. This basic philosophy is exactly what changed the game.
 
“If you put your head down and work hard, you can fundamentally transform your reality.” - Geoff Blades
 
He began taking his education seriously, ultimately landing him in a good university and a job at Goldman Sachs.

What You Want
Very few people can answer what seems to be the most pressing of questions one can encounter in their entire lifetime. What do we want? Geoff believes, however, that it’s not so much as not knowing what we want in life.
 
“Most people know exactly what they want but they don’t believe that they can get it and so they don’t give themselves the permission to open up their mind and go for it.” - Geoff Blades
 
Understanding what we want, however, is only the first step to becoming successful and standing out in life.
