Who am I?
Hello, I am Stan. I am 29. I teach at the university. I ran a company.
In 2012 I wrote a book.
In 2013 I sold my first company.
In 2014 I put all my effort in building UNIFER, education-hacking company.
In 2015 Forbes put me in “30 under 30” list.
What am I doing?
I am hitch-hiking around the world. But I travel with rich people. Why?
My goal is clear. I want to find out how rich and successful people think and make decisions.
I call it the “Psychology of Rich”. Rich in every meaning the person can enrich the world.
What are the rules of the mission?
Every person that I visit is someone who:
– Is a true gift to the humanity –
– Is willing to accommodate me –
– Is willing to connect me with another person –
– Is willing to provide me transportation to that next person –
The rule number one is: “I am not allowed to spend a single dollar for the trip”.
Why am I doing it?
I want to fulfill my life’s purpose - to create the greatest good for the greatest number of people.
I’ve always been wondering: “How can I achieve that?” So I ran a socially beneficial project. I was also teaching, motivating, inspiring... but that was not enough. I realized that the change I am striving for will not come through politics, nor through non-profit organisations. It might be true that real potential for the change is in the hands of the rich, because they truly have the power to influence the world around them.
This is the reason, why I want to understand them better. I want to know how they think, what they want, how they decide, what they consider important… because I believe that this knowledge will allow us to make the world a better place.
We will be able to communicate better with each other.
We will be able to bring many hidden ideas to life.
We will be able to get closer together and focus on the things that matter.

Now, something from deep inside of me...
Sometimes, I am sceptical about our future. We are not treating each other with respect and we are devasting the planet. I don’t think we live in a sustainable way. I don’t want to enjoy my life and die, regardless of what follows. I want to do my best to help the civilisation I am a part of.
There are many things I can do on the local level. But I choose global. I feel deep in my bones that this is my purpose. I don’t feel to be a Czech, or a Slovak, or an American. I feel to be an Earthian.
My goal is not to find out how rich people think so we all can be rich, nor is my goal to find out what kind of cars they drive. My goal is to ask them, honestly, questions that matter...
What would you like to change in the world?
What do you think that the world needs the most?
Where do you see the near future of the human society?
And many others...
