So it's probably time we start writing a blog. I'm not sure why we haven't done one before since its a pretty cool concept to write a public diary of things. I think it likely has something to do with how busy we usually are - or think we am. I think it's time to share our thoughts with you now though because why not.
I'm currently writing this on a plane heading back from Singapore to Melbourne and its turbulent as anything. I think I've realised that the older I get the less I enjoy flying. What I once enjoyed as friendly banter between the plane and its surrounds now raises the hair on my neck. It's no longer a case of watching Jumanji as a kid on a flight from the UK to Singapore and enjoying the "real 4D effects", but more like an experience that keeps me solid in my seat.
Anyway it’s been a great week visiting Singapore doing fun things. We've worked real hard so far this year and it was a well-deserved break.
However I've got 94 million things to come back to with JellyChip. And I love it - I also hope it's worth it. So what is JellyChip? It's like my unborn son, a fanatical obsession, and a game-changer.
What I'm working on right now is a social network called JellyChip and it's going to do really cool things for the world. It's essentially a way for everybody to join forces and earn points by doing things on our site to buy gifts with those points. No money is exchanged and our users can make a real difference across the globe for free.
I built an app in my last year of the MBA called Pocket Rice and it does similar stuff - earn rice for playing trivia. It's all paid for by in app purchases and it makes people feel really good.
Can't wait for JellyChip to launch in June and rally you guys around making a real difference online. I'll need you to help me out when it comes closer to the date! Let’s make magic together.
Also listening to an amazing acoustic playlist on Spotify right now. It’s funny because the man next to me has just opened his window slightly, flooding the darkened cabin with light and annoying the lady to my right. People are funny sometimes.
Look forward to coming back to Melbourne to continue making cool things. You know when you're in the right place in life when it just feels right. And it feels right, right now.
Hope you can stay around for the ride because it’s going to get a little crazy.
