There are two things that are certain in life: death and taxes. I would prefer to add a third one: change. People who don’t align with the third factor are likely to have a lot of difficulties navigating the tides of life. As the award-winning innovator, Matthias Mende would say, “those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”
Story Of Success
Today, we are witnessing the emergence of many young and successful people who are also very rich. Their success is something to talk about – but there is also a fact that no success comes at all overnight. Sometimes, to be successful, it is necessary to be innovative and have a good sense of business. That’s just the kind of man Matthias Mende is. His success story is not only interesting but also very inspiring.
Mende has always found time to inspire young people.
“Self-discovery is very important in the journey of life. It starts with critical thinking and having the ability to see ideas from various angles to align with things that work and never being afraid to make changes. Make conscious research and be curious to find out why”
How Did It Start?
Mende was born in Germany, where, like most of the late ’70s and early ’80s generation – he was fascinated by the emergence of then-new presented “electronic toys” like the Commodore 64, Sega or Nintendo. This interest later prompted him to explore the field of computing – and move from bare entertainment to business. His love and interest in computers came in handy when he was a teenager.
Namely, at that time Mende started to modify and sell hardware components on eBay. The proof of how much entrepreneurial spirit he still had – was the fact is that he registered his company at the time, under the name 2FastConcepts. He got his inspiration from watching the movie Fast and Furious, and that’s how his business started. In a very short time, his company begins to trade car parts, as well as modifying and adjusting cars.
Every business is such that it also entails certain risks. When he was 21, Mende decided to take the risk. Specifically, since his company dealt with cars, he decided to move his business to Dubai – a place that is a mecca for luxury cars. Still, he didn’t stop there. He has expanded his interest to other areas, having founded a social media agency MEMMOS, and has become involved in the cryptocurrency business – more specifically blockchain technology.
With the knowledge and experience he gained, he quickly became Block Gemini’s chief strategist – and in 2018 he was named the best influencer in this field in Singapore at the Satoshi United Crypto conference. We can say Mende has taken every opportunity that came his way.
Is There A Genius In Every Human?
Mende who anchored multiple years visiting the Burning Man festival believes that such events are geared towards awakening the genius in every human. This is an avenue to rub bright minds together and forge solutions to problems that have eaten deep into the fabrics of the society. Geniuses like the Google Founders, Mark Zuckerberg, Murathan Gunal, Elon Musk and plenty more go there to find inspiration and rediscover their minds. Mende reiterated that every change we ever need to sail through the next phase of life is domiciled within our mind.
