At 10pm on Wednesday I saw a post on Facebook advertising an Internet marketing meet up in Glasgow. One of the things I love to do in life is make snap decisions. Personally I don’t see the point in thinking about something for days or weeks. I prefer to just get on with it and take massive action.
OK so I thought about it (for all of about 10 seconds !!) and then decided to set off the next morning for the first major road trip in my new Tesla electric car.
It was funny when I walked into the showroom last week to collect my new car, there was a big sheet over the car and a sign next to the car which said Sarah Staar’s Tesla.
The staff in the showroom gathered round and said 123 then pulled off the sheet to reveal the car.. Pretty cool hey…
If you’d like to see a video of the reveal it’s on my Facebook profile page.
The thing I love about Internet marketing is the freedom it gives you to do stuff when you want and how you want.
So I set off on Thursday morning and drove to my first stop, which was Bristol, (yes I know it’s not exactly en route !) to meet up with my good friend Deborah and chat about a project she is working on for me.
Now I got this Tesla just in time to take advantage of their free supercharger network.
So I charged the car up in Bristol at a supercharger point and was absolutely gob smacked at seeing a Volvo plugged into one of the Tesla chargers !!
This is like someone stealing your petrol at a service station….
I hope the person that owns AE17 TEY has a good reason for using a Tesla supercharger.
A second Tesla owner pulled up and we proceeded to have a conversation about this, we were both rather puzzled…..
It’s quite funny really, I guess I’ve joined the Unofficial Tesla Club… whenever I charge my car and there’s another Tesla owner at the charging station we seem to strike up a conversation… great fun.
Glasgow is a bit of a hike up the road from Bristol, normally I wouldn’t even consider going that distance in a car – just too tiring.
But I paid for the autopilot feature in my Tesla and I’ve been testing it out on this trip, and yes the car actually steers itself!!! kind of self driving… I have to say it makes long trips much more bearable and actually quite fun.
And it’s very safe by the way..
The great thing is since the car is driving itself it’s giving me the time to catch up on reading some books…
Don’t worry I’m not actually physically reading them with my hands nowhere near the steering wheel !!
I’m using Audible, which is a service which reads books out to you.
This is an absolutely brilliant app to use if do any kind of long distance travelling.
This means driving a car is no-longer wasted downtime, we are now able to timeshift.
So what books have I been reading on this trip ?
How a group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks created the digital Revolution.
This is a very interesting book and tells the story about how our world of Digital Tech came about.
I’ve only read about a quarter of the book so far, covering the development of the computer and the transistor. The lessons I’ve learnt so far from this book are :
– don’t try to do everything yourself, surround yourself with experts and motivate those experts to do brilliant work for you.
– also don’t get stuck in your own ways of doing things, be prepared to admit that you’re wrong and be prepared to change how you do things.
Anyone Can Do It – my story by Duncan Bannatyne
I just started reading this book this morning, but so far I’ve learnt :
– you don’t need to be first to the market with an idea, you just need to do it better than anybody else.
