“Wisdom is applied knowledge and finding better ways to get from point A to point Z.” -Patrick McDaniel

Wise Insights started with his desire to put together something that’s full of wisdom. They focus on two streams of wisdom: research-backed insights and time-tested wisdom. And there are two dimensions of decision making as well: process and hidden influences.

Wisdom for Entrepreneurs

Wise Insights is for entrepreneurs and/or achievers who want to have more out of life. Patrick saw how these individuals typically start but eventually lose their will to go on.

“Time-tested wisdom is proven observations from wise thinkers through trial and error to help you avoid stupid choices.” -Patrick McDaniel

The idea of a sure buddy is one thing they try to apply. A sure buddy is someone who has been up the mountain, and can guide mountain climbers on which way to go.

For Patrick, he considers himself as an investigating sure buddy. He is learning as much as he is sharing.

The Importance of Wisdom
