What the media doesn’t know
When Outfit7 started in 2009; one of their first meetings involved a manifestation exercise – the intention was to sell the company in seven years to allow the founders to pursue their non profit objectives. They manifested they would sell the company for $100m – they got it wrong! It sold almost exactly to the week seven years later for $1billion.
