When it comes to running a business, whether you just started off or have been offering a service or selling a product for a while, there will be situations where you’ll come across difficult clients.

I mean it’s not possible for anybody to be in a line of business and be able to entirely avoid negative or non-cooperative clients or customers. Some people call such clients as a ‘necessary evil’ because it’s like you can’t live them and you can’t live without them.

We always have to go through something bad or negative in the world in order to filter out or recognize the good, and the same applies to clients. …

Contrary to the popular perception that marketing is not an honest profession, I’m here to tell you today that marketing is not about lying.

Marketing is about speaking the truth, but in order to be successful in marketing, you have to tell the truth in a way that makes your product or service sound fascinating enough for your prospects to want to buy into the idea.

The best marketers are those who tell people true stories. The only problem is that plain truth can actually be quite boring, but that’s where the profession of marketing actually begins to get exciting.

What exactly to tell your customers is always a challenge, and that’s why a good marketer needs to have a very robust and colorful skill set. …

Unlike fiat currencies like the Dollar or the Euro, the supply of Bitcoin doesn’t depend on a central authority that prints as much as it wants.

When Bitcoin was created in 2008 by Satoshi Nakamoto, he set the maximum supply of Bitcoin to 21 million. To ensure the stability of the currency and prevent inflation, Satoshi came with a way to distribute new Bitcoin gradually.

Bitcoin miners are responsible for validating transactions on the Bitcoin blockchain, and are rewarded with new Bitcoin for doing so.

When it all started, the reward was set at 50 BTC per block. However, Nakamoto added to the protocol a rule where every 210,000 blocks, which is roughly every four years, the reward will become half. …


With people stuck at home, cryptocurrency is seeing renewed interest by some investors.

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin (BTC) is a cryptocurrency, which means it’s a digital currency that is utilized and disseminated electronically.

Bitcoin is part of a decentralized distributed system. No single entity or individual controls it.

Bitcoins cannot be printed and their sum is constrained — just 21 million Bitcoins can ever be made.

Bitcoin was first presented as an open-source software by an unknown software engineer, or a group of developers, under the name Satoshi Nakamoto, in 2009.

Nakamoto himself once professed to be a 37-year-old male living in Japan. …

Stocks, gold, real estate and ETFs — everyone’s talking about that! But what about the forgotten child: cryptocurrency?

One of the biggest things that this 2020 economic crash has taught us is the importance of having a savings cushion. It has became painfully apparent that most people in most of the countries in the world do not even have $1,000 saved up to protect them from an emergency like what we’re seeing right now. …

If you have been feeling lost lately and have no idea what you want to do next in your life, then you have come to the right place. This feeling of feeling lost is very familiar to most of us, especially in 2020 when we are going through the coronavirus pandemic.

This article is about learning how to gain more clarity in terms of what you want to do in your life, and becoming more comfortable with navigating the unknown.

The first we need to do is to address the shame and the guilt that we feel from being lost. We think that we’re the only ones that feel this way, but I guarantee you if you actually ask any other 20 year-old in this generation, many of them are lost as well.
