How To Make Better Decisions Under Uncertainty

Many of the decisions we make every day are subject to uncertainty. Should I accept the job offer? Should I start that business? Should I marry my partner?

This course breaks down the main things you can do to make better decisions under uncertainty, from when to rely on the wisdom of the crowds to why simple formulas can sometimes make for optimal decisions. You will also discover why taking the “outside view” and practicing second-level thinking can give you the edge on your competition.

In each lesson, you will find an action that you can introduce into your everyday life. Take five minutes every day, and get the insights and tips you need to make better decisions.


Recession Proof: How To Navigate A Turbulent Economy

You may not know it, but where the economy is on the business cycle impacts your life in a big way. While everything may seem okay when the economy is booming, the cycle will inevitably turn and a period of slow growth or even recession will follow.

Recession may negatively impact your job prospects and future salary. Recession may send your business into a tailspin. Recession may also harm your investments, including your retirement savings.

That’s why it’s important for everyone—business owners, investors, and employees alike—to understand where to find and how to interpret the best economic leading indicators.

Economist, author, and investor Peter Sainsbury explains why each indicator is important, finishing with career and investment tips on how you might prepare for the next recession. Take five minutes every day, and get the data you need to make better professional and financial decisions.


How To Be A Smarter Media Consumer

The information age is drowning us with an unprecedented deluge of data, “facts,” and opinion. What information consumes is rather obvious: our attention.

The result of this deficit of attention is the rise of fake news, media bias, and information overload. This is bad for all of us—our democracies, our understanding of the world, and even our own health and wellbeing.

Economist, author, and investor Peter Sainsbury explains what you can do to combat these forces. Take five minutes every day, and get the insights and tips you need to take back your thinking and be a better media consumer.


Your 10-Day MBA

A master’s degree in business (MBA) is an enormous commitment in terms of time and money. Students at the top business schools in the US often spend two years and over $100,000 to complete the course.

As change in markets, society, and technology has accelerated, the value of an MBA has diminished. Students often find upon graduation that much of what they have been taught has fallen behind the real world of business.

Author, course creator, and investor Peter Sainsbury explains the key concepts that students learn doing an MBA course at business school—in just five minutes a day, for ten days.

At the end of each lesson, there are links to books and videos to take your learning one step further.

By completing this course, you will know everything today’s business owners and creators need to know—from the value creation process to finance and ethics and how to deal with change.
