Hello, Mr. Diamandis,
My name is David Alpuche, and as the title of my site states I'm a photographer, but I'm not writing this as one. I am writing this as David, a guy born and raised in Mexico, that by a lucky draw is currently living in America.
I don't remember exactly how or where I found about you and the admirable work you are doing all over the world, but I am happy I did, because people like you are what's needed in times like these.
I am a huge fan of yours. I admire how you seem to be a guy that doesn't take a no for an answer when a yes is what's needed to change a paradigm, or push an industry forward.
People like you, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Larry Page and Richard Branson are shaping our future today, and more importantly, are always willing to share your knowledge and expertise, inspiring more and more people to one day become the one with the next breakthrough that will help humanity become the best it can be.
I know how much your book Abundance, and your Espresso Shots have inspired me to see the world in a different way and to "step it up" when it comes to my goals and dreams. I am very grateful for this.
Now, do you mind if I ask you a big favor?
As I previously mentioned, I am living in America, but all my family still lives in Mexico. I am the elder of three brothers: Eduardo is the next one, he just turned 21 and is currently working on getting his degree in Bionic Engineer from the IPN (National Polytechnic Institute) and the youngest one, Oscar, is 18 and will start college this year and as far as I know is still undecided about his career. I think he wants to play the violin.
It's because of them that I write you. I want them to know about you, your ideas, your books. I want them to think big. I want them to be part of the people that will make this world a better place. The problem with this is simple: Language barrier. They have taken some English courses in school, but their knowledge of the language is not enough for them to read and fully understand your books, or videos.
So, I come up with this: do you mind if I translate your book for them? I have done translating jobs in the past, and I think doing this will help not only them, but might give you a whole new audience for your ideas. There is a whole country of Spanish speaking people dreaming of a better future right next door. And I think we would all benefit from them getting ideas like yours.
I hope you don't mind me reaching out to you like this, but I think it was worth the try.
Thank you for your attention and for all the work you put in making this a better place for all of us.
