Let’s Talk Bitcoin
You’d have to be living under a rock to not have heard about cryptocurrency. FYI: cryptocurrency is digital currency that’s designed to be anonymous and secure, and bitcoins are a type of digital currency that currently has a booming exchange rate, making them super valuable and super important in the current and future economy. This podcast is for beginners (definitely us) and goes into detail about the what, the why and the how of cryptocurrency, including mining (no machinery needed), investing and exchanges. Listen to it here.
The Tim Ferris Show
Every podcast on The Tim Ferris Show breaks down what super successful business people do in their day-to-day life, how they got there and the tips and tricks that work for them. We’re talking people like Tony Robbins, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Foxx, AKA the real deals. Each episode doesn’t necessarily teach you about money, rather it shows you how things like meditation, creativity, tips ‘n’ tricks, and trends eventually lead to success in business, (and hopefully those big cash dollars). Listen to it here.
