About

 5 Pieces of Advice is a project with the sole mission to inspire and uplift humanity by collecting the biggest and most powerful life lessons ( in different categories like business, health, relationship, parenting) from experts and millions of “everyday people” all over the world and sharing it in a form of documentaries, books, and online platform. 

All this so we can all live better, more fulfilled life, enriched with the critical life lessons they wouldn’t have access to otherwise

We all want to live our best lives. 

Yet millions of us go through life and wake up each day feeling unfulfilled, feeling trapped, lost, upset and angry. And often times we don’t know why or where we’ve gone wrong. 

We typically learn about the most important lessons in life through our own mistakes and from the people around us. But this process is usually slow and often times painful  

Is there any better and faster way to learn?  

What if you could access the most powerful, impactful and life changing lessons from experts and of millions of people who have been there before you and instantly Fast Track your life?  

5 Pieces of Advice is a global project with a sole mission to inspire and uplift humanity by collecting the life wisdom from both experts and everyday people all over the world... And then sharing it in the form of books, a documentary and on an online platform so we can all live our best lives!

It’s time to uncover the life wisdom and enable everyone to learn what really matters so we all can have better lives and make this world a better place.  

The idea comes from the my experience where one piece of advice from a random person on a plane changed his entire life. 

Because this story was so powerful in my life from that moment I started asking random people all over the world, for 5 pieces of advice, and heard so many inspiring stories.

By asking those with more experience than me, I can travel in time. I can see my future, and how if I act now, I won’t have the same regrets. While every person carries a lot of this wisdom, we all still wait to learn by making the same mistakes. Our lessons are never shared.

We shouldn't have to make all our own mistakes if we can learn from others’ experiences

There are millions of people going through exactly the same thing as you do every single day, learning and making mistakes.

Now imagine, what would happen if we had access to the life wisdom and experiences of millions of people around the world?

Think how you could be a better father, mother, or even businessman, if you could listen to just one story per day.

Your perspective would be far wider, your relationships geared to success. We could fast-track our lives, and live with few major regrets. We could save ourselves and others so much pain.

 That’s why we founded 5 Pieces of Advice.  

Imagine getting access to life lessons learnt by not one, by millions of people from all over the world in a specific category so you can:

  • Learn Faster and Avoid Mistakes  
  • Gain Life-Changing Insights
  • Learn important life lessons in minutes not years  
  • Get the knowledge they should have been taught at school or by parents by never had

 And ultimately fast track your way to a better, more fulfilled life, enriched with the critical life lessons they wouldn’t have access to otherwise in these categories:

 5 Pieces of Advice as it is now is a result of more than a 2-year journey which started with one person on the plane giving me simple yet life-changing advice. 


Inspired, I set myself on a journey to understand and share what really matters in life by asking, uncovering and sharing wisdom about life from experts and everyday people.  

Making it happen. First steps.  


 What started as just a side project quickly grew into something much bigger and a realization that we could not only turn it into a full-time project, but a project which could have a tremendous impact out there.



When the basic plan and wire frames were ready, I gathered a team of developers, designers, and video editor to get out the first beta version of the website and started contacting experts and book authors to do interviews.
 

Taking a plunge and visiting US  

The next step was to validate more how people respond to the idea. both people on the streets and whether any experts and book authors will reply. I sent around 200 Invitations to book authors across the US. I gathered my last bunch of savings and decided to take the plunge and go to US for 3,5 months to interview experts and people on the streets. 

First Interviews, Validation, and Excitement


 I visited 6 cities. Wherever I went, I had a line of people waiting to share and give his or her piece of advice. 

Many were excited and you could see the joy on their faces while sharing their stories and advice. I met a lot of incredible people who offered to give feedback, help and spread the word.
 
 

Meeting the experts!!!  

I made 15 Interviews with Experts, and nearly 90 Interviews with everyday people on the street, beaches and in parks of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Orlando. Thanks to that amazing trip we already have a bunch of incredible people on board:

At that point, my savings were gone. But I Did validate the idea, met incredible people and learn a lot. I strongly believe that it can truly can an impact and bring so much joy, happiness and love into the world.


Collect powerful wisdom to uplift humanity! With creating a place to share those inspiring stories comes a number of amazing benefits for all of us. 

We are launching a KickStarter campaign becouse we wnat to take this project to the next level. If successful will send us on a Quest to interview experts and “everyday people” about their life lessons, mistakes and successes to distill what really matters in those 6 categories: 

  • Life Wisdom 
  • Being a mother
  • Being a father 
  • Relationships 
  • Business
  • Health 

We want to uncover, gather, systematize the most powerful, impactful and life changing lessons and make it available to everyone through:

 1) an inspiring documentary and 

2) a series of books featuring the most impactful and life changing interviews and

 3) a global platform where people can share their life stories, advice and lessons...

 All to enable crowdsourcing of wisdom we all gather as we go through life which otherwise goes unnoticed. In the future we hope it would become a crowdsourced life wisdom university. 

During Our first trip we are planning to visit 15 cities in US, but this is just a begining. 

Access the most powerful, impactful and life-changing pieces of advice from people all over the world in different categories and learn what really matters 


We will go on a journey to interview experts and everyday people just like you and compile it into the best, most actionable and life-changing advice for you to the absolute essence so in you can learn and understand what really matters in these different areas of your life.  



The movie works as a collection of opinion pieces of the experts and everyday people and acts as a compass teaching the most important and valuable lessons we all should learn in life.

From community dwellers in, to a 60-year old surfers, farmers, or the cheerful male and female inhabitants of different cities, the film will be packed with positive and optimistic stories of life and will become a real inspiration and lesson for any viewer.

We hope that it will spark powerful conversations, elevates hundreds of new stories and empower thousands of people to celebrate their own experiences, mistakes successes and help us all see that the most important life wisdom is already out there.

Get the collection of lessons, stories and advice about life in general and in a specific category.

Taking all we learn we want to put it in a book format to make it accessible to even more people. We will create a series of the books of the MOST IMPORTANT life-changing lessons, advice and experiences from the people and experts we will meet on the road.


We wanted to create a  place  for people where they will be able to do that. A place for inspiration, for joy, for learning, a place which is going to grow and provide beautiful content all the time for fre! 

Web Platform 2.0? 

At the moment, we have a very basic website with a basic functionality. Reaching a stretch goal will enable us to make it into a powerhouse and invest money in its promotion so it can truly become a next generation university for crowdsourced life wisdom, a thriving community, and a place to learn all the things you should have but never had a chance to.

It has been an incredible journey so far, and me, and the team have been working hard to validate it and get it off the ground as much as possible.

As a John Lennon said:

 "You can say I am a dreamer. But I am not the only one". So I hope so you will join me on this great adventure."

Where are we at and the next steps?

I have a great camera crew ready to start.

We already started establishing a network and reaching out to book authors, experts and leaders who want to come on board and share their stories.

I have been working with an incredible team so far of web developers, graphic designers but the most important and my right-hand great video director Arkadius Godlewski

Risks and challenges

Development of the project like this one possesses unique challenges and there are always a few risks that come from delivering such a product. Because we have already been on the road and have done similar projects in the past (Pawel is a book author, and Arek have done multiple short movies) we have the utmost confidence in our team and our ability to deliver.

We also have extreme passion for making it happen and taking it way beyond this few products.

Whatever happens along the journey, we’ll always remain completely transparent to make sure we deliver all the products as soon as possible.

Your contribution small or large is so valuable!

Together we can get this done!
