Amazon Coins

Amazon Coin is inevitable. So is Apple Cash. Hundreds of billions of dollars have been created in the cryptocurrency markets, literally out of thin air. That’s why it’s inevitable that a FAANG coin (an Amazon Coin or Apple Cash) will be created by the tech colossi. Apple CEO Tim Cook recently said that he believes he will be around to see the “elimination of money”. With over 1.2 billion iPhones in circulation worldwide, Apple has an excellent foundation from which to launch a cryptocurrency. And a survey of 1,000 Amazon…

Today, February 24th, 2018, Berkshire Hathaway released Warren Buffett’s 2018 letter to shareholders. Each year the “Oracle of Omaha” releases his letter to investors. It is always an interesting and educational read. The Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway has a folksy, avuncular style and frugal spending habits that seem to contradict his billionaire status. Each paraenetic point in the letter gives insight into his investing success and business acumen. This year’s letter is only 16 pages and does not disappoint. It even includes a poem by Kipling. Much of Buffett’s wisdom can be extrapolated…

5 Ways to Overcome Depression as a Solopreneur

5 ways to Overcome Depression as a Solopreneur

In 2012 I attended a conference for entrepreneurs. It was at a ski resort in Lake Tahoe. The conference was filled with a lot of really smart and impressive business people. I can’t remember all of them, but it was a very open scene. Regardless of the level of “success” people had, everyone treated each other more or less as equals.
