How can I make money with cryptocurrencies?
Cryptocurrencies, digital money that is transforming the way to view transactions. Blockchain, a decentralized ledger system on which these cryptocurrencies operate, is here to stay. Arguably the concept of Cryptocurrencies is here to stay, as well. As revolutionary as they are, the space remains a speculative and extremely risky place for investment. We’ve seen wild run up and quick crashes in the market over the last number of years.
If you are new to cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and blockchain, you can read an introductory guide I wrote here. Cryptocurrencies have made a lot of people a lot of money other the last number of years. But there’s a whole other domain of the crypto world that blew up in popularity starting in 2017 and has made many overnight millionaires even quicker. Initial Coin Offerings; ICOs. Similar to the concept of an IPO, where an company uses crowdfunding to gain capital to produce and scale their product and company.
Why can’t I save any money?
I’ve found over the years showing your true colors and being painfully blunt usually isn’t the best strategy. People either lock up defensively when you come at them with the raw truth, or the honest reality is too painful to hear that they create and hold on to illusions rather than face the truth. It’s easier for myself, and generally more effective to get the point across to sugarcoat truths and tailor the message for the audience.
Sometimes though, tough love is the best remedy.
Should I teach ESL?
Sometimes I think to myself “I can’t believe I’m teaching ESL to children for a living”. Growing up, never one did I ever consider becoming a teacher. Yet here I am. Last year at this time, during my first year as an ESL teacher in South Korea there’s also no chance I ever imagined I would now be teaching ESL in China.
Yet, here I am.
What makes a good man?
Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to deal with some great and success men. From my father, to multimillionaires in their 20’s and owners of empires. It usually becomes apparent quicker than not in interaction, that you get the sense you are dealing with a man of high caliber.
Often times there are typical status symbols of a great or successful man; they have a successful business, they’ve reached an expert level or high status within their chosen career. Maybe they have the flashy material items that can just come along with greatness and success.
But that’s usually not the only thing. High status, a profitable business, and toys are just byproducts of what come from the characteristics – ingredients, if you will – of great and successful men. They aren’t great and successful because of the cars and top jobs or businesses. They have those things because of a few characteristics.
Do I need travel insurance?
Travel is a beautiful experience. I love exploring new places and drinking in new cultures. Despite how enriching it is, less than desirable events can occur. I should know.
Over the years I’ve had many very positive experiences. But I’ve had a few sour ones. Namely, I broke my ankle while in South Korea. And my phone was stolen in Cambodia. I’ve also had flights delayed and some baggage mishaps.
Half of these events, more than likely, could have been avoiding by not drinking to be honest. But hey, that’s something we will never know. Jokes aside, life happens and it sucks. You can’t always avoid the bad events, but you can prepare yourself so that if they do happen, you limit your loss.
