How High Could Bitcoin Go This Time?

First up, this is an entirely fun and speculative post. Literally like me conjecting a number out of thin air (or pulling a number out of my ass, as I would call it). To simplify, I just looked with my plain old eyeballs at the previous ATHs (at-the-high) of Bitcoin in the last cycle, take … Read more

Your Biggest Enemy Is Yourself

Not that trash-talking jock, or that mean “friend” we all have. Or your seemingly mean neighbour, friends, family. Or maybe you were born poor and in a not optimal household, city or country. It’s you. There’s no one else to point your grubby finger to blame: “He / she did it”. Did what? If you … Read more

Next, Aggressively Cut Unnecessary Expenses

It’s not just how much cashflow and profit you can make, but it’s also how much you can keep.

Start Ups & Entrepreneurs, You NEED Cashflow

This is a rant. I’ve met so many…too many aspiring enterprises and entrepreneurs, who are blinded by their “big dreams” of “being” an entrepreneur, that they fail this most basic concept of entrepreneurship and business: That ALL businesses and start-ups need cashflow, to survive, thrive and grow.

In the face of death, our truest self materializes

Trust fund: get thinking and started

I’ve written a series on my thoughts on starting a trust fund, and today I want you to start thinking about it seriously, especially when you have people, organizations and causes that you care about.

A trust fund can help with preventing conflicts by bringing clarity and purpose

Without a plan, one plans to fail. That’s the reason why I am so adamant on having and building a trust fund for ourselves and our future generations.
