Bitcoin, Gurus, and Podcasts

What is with all the new tech coming out?

While everyones talking tech this week my tech stocks are taking a dive.. Whats up with that?

Recently a conversation with my good friend David we talked about how much I rant lately. Are you learning from these rants?  Do you have a place to rant? Imagine a world where everyone could rant. Picture yourself in a world of sharing your struggles and joys, oh thats called a blog…

So last week I did a quick  video about the world of Bitcoin, (watch the video here) I was not putting down bitcoin. The message and rant was about how so many people jump on the wagon when its the hot topic. Currently  I have many friends who have been investing in crypto currencies this year. Many are very profitable from it. But like any bubble, bust, or latest greatest hot topics. So many people have jumped on the wagon of “experts”.

So if you want to be successful, or learn about something you do the research. You find out who the people are who know what they are talking about and who to avoid. The last few years with experiences on Blab allowed me to meet many people who have great intentions, but NO depth anything they do. They are like dust in the wind.

So who should we check out in this space?

So with the crypto currency topics going about, here is some places you can learn from that might help. These 3 people are people whom I trust for advice:

First as mentioned on the video Joel Comm. (Bad Crypto Podcast) He runs a podcast talking about it, and as Joel always has he is someone who is on the cutting edge with things. Always a person to listen to when you look into anything new online, Joel will walk past some of those landmines and help you down a success path.

 

 

 

Second would be Ani Alexander who runs the podcast Crypto talks, Ani works in the field as part of her job, she is not just a guru who is talking about it to get you to invest in it. In the few years Ive known Ani, she does tons of research about anything she does. She has been great over the years helping authors build an awesome brand for themselves. Now Ani is part of BABB ( Bank Account Based Blockchain) working as the head of marketing. Using her marketing expertise to help investors on this exciting place.

 

 

Third is what I want to call the Godfather of Podcasting. A personal friends who started studying the field and using his podcasting skills to ask the questions you would ask, from the people who know. Gary Leland is a friend who lives in Dallas, and last night we got to chatting about what he is learning and how, he is working with another highly respected person in the Dallas area in the WordPress field Tony Cecala. They have a podcast known as Crypto Cousins. ( their podcast artwork is featured in todays photo).

 

 

My experience

This morning I decided to take a dip in the water, now Im not recommending you put all your savings or invest large amounts of money you could not afford to lose. Do you research on any investment you make. But I decided to set up a Coinbase account as they are recommending it, and invested $100 in bitcoin this morning. Gary gave me an referral link where he made $10 for referring me. If you wish to try this investment out, when you invest $100 both you and I get $10. If you wish to try click this link below and set up your account.

Coinbase Account

Change is hard. But im willing.. Are you??

As we enter this last month of the year 2017 its time to change. Do you feel you need to change?

I feel I do.

Image the world you wanted to find when you were young.

Picture your future, if you keep on the path you are going on. Where does it lead?

The older I’ve gotten the more I realize how lazy I’ve become…

Hopefully you are not as lazy as me.

So as we have been getting our websites and blog ready for change, its not the website that needs a change. Life needs a change also.

How about you??? Do you feel you need to change?

Walking through our local grocery store today, I realize how as a small business person with a system for everything, its easy to get what I’m looking for. You know the point, you stop looking to other small business people to get the products or services you need. You head to your grocery store, or online store now to get things the simple way. Or you pick up the most marketed product (the jingle sticks in your head)

Its time for change, when you hate cold sales pitches, and like the warm relationships that lead to the sales you want.

So tell me about your business….

Today I reached out to the first of people I know who have a product line that I could use, instead of a major brand. I could support a small business person instead of some major corporation.  BUT they must meet with me to let me know they care about me, and not just my money.

When we choose an insurance agent a few years ago it was someone who had a relationship with me. Someone who spent time getting to know me. Someone who did business with me in my last business. So my friend Jeff became our insurance agent, he was willing to sit down and talk over my needs, not just have me talk to his assistant.

So today I sent a message to another friend Kristi, lets see if she is willing to do the same as my insurance agent….

Better yet….

I’m changing the way of finding customers in my business, its time to have some personal meetings to talk over the needs of my future clients. As a consultant, and coach its time to have some one on one meetings again to see if what they need is what I’m offering.

So its time to meet new people, make friendships, and do business with friends again.

So tell me about you???

Lets get to know each other…

Really tell me….
