James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

Need some motivation?

There is no shortage of events and videos to get motivation from these days. So where do you go for motivation? I love TEDTalks and CreativeMornings talks are also a fantastic place to find inspiring motivational talks. But, there is always a but, what I am starting to find is motivational and educational talks are […]

Thoughts on Retirement?

When are you ready to retire? Will you ever be ready to retire? We opened the phone lines and asked Dubai what their thoughts were on retirement and whether they would be ready someday? The Podcast Link.

Debt! What are you doing.

Last week on Nightline we had a great conversation about personal debt. As the price of oil continues to sink it is inevitable that we are all going to have to start to exercise a bit of belt tightening. But what if you have not been very good at controlling your spending up to this point? […]

Do you know your Mother?

So, how well do you know your mother? Could you write a book about your mother? What would the soundtrack of your mother’s life be? And who would read a book about your mother? Lots of questions and Billie Elias has the answers as she talks to me about writing a book about her own […]

Introducing Burgers2Binary the podcast!

Andrew Thomas and aI have been doing a show on DubaiEye for a bunch of years now, Techtalk is what it is called. Well, for too long we have been talking about a spinoff show of sorts. You see, there are some restrictions when you are doing a commercial radio broadcast, mainly that you need to […]

Raising the price will force us to consider buying fewer big cars, drive slower with smaller cars and maybe even stop driving as much! The idea […]

Writers Block, What To DO?

I am a professor and I create teaching content on a daily basis. I am a radio broadcaster and 6 hours a week produce original content on DubaiEye. Actually, I think the content I pull together with Paul Kelly from Triplew.me is some of the best research, writing, recording, editing and distribution I have been part […]

Education Via Artistry

I think we spend a lot of time trying to figure out where and how to get the best education hit. Well last night I spoke to Gayathri on Nightline and realized that some of the best education happens along the way. For instance how d we learn to be a good, maybe great, marketer? We […]

Parents Get it Right?

How good of a parent are you? There are some questions being asked about how protective we should actually be of our children. Some people say we are right on track and others feel we maybe need to let go a little. A recent study doesn’t paint the brightest picture   Some actually feel that […]

Who do you talk to about your health?

On Nightline we had a conversation about advice, where do we turn for advice? I wondered out loud as I tend to do on a nightly basis, whether we are putting our heads in the sand when it comes to getting advice. I mean, who do we traditionally ask for help? You talk to your […]
