"Any plans for politics?"

A major thing people are interested in is whether or not I intend to become personally involved in politics; running for election and such.

The truth is, I don't have any plans to run for election. At least not any time soon. Maybe one day?

See, on one hand it would potentially affect my ability to do what I do now. I think people might be less inclined to ask me to give talks if I had "Cllr", "MLA", or "MP" attached to my name. However, on the other hand, with the income I'd potentially be able to found and partially fund a non-profit focusing on mental health education. It would also give me a bigger platform to push for mental health to be a compulsory area on the curriculum.

So I don't know. What do you guys think? Should I start saving my pennies for candidacy fees?
