A Crypto Marriage in The Blockchain - Short Story
Most of us are taught from an early age... and I’m going to quote everybody’s older relatives…
“Money doesn’t grow on trees!”
Yeah! Ok! I got that from my father a lot!
And I have to agree. While I’ve been more blessed than most... in a sense that I’ve been able to successfully market and leverage very specific knowledge in different lucrative niches and markets…(when I say "I", I am talking about both me and Aly, as we had common projects even before we got married)
...it hasn’t been easy.
In fact, I’m used to making money by banging my head against the wall. Grinding out 16 hour days when it’s crunch time is nothing new to me.
I’m used to it, and I kind of like it.
Truth be told, when I’m in the thick of things, I don’t even feel it. I pay the price later, for sure… but I also reap the rewards... often in the form of thousands of dollars in a day. Sometimes...that is.
Now here’s the problem, though.
When you come across a legit opportunity that doesn’t require you to work a lot… In fact, if the best thing you can do to profit is to sit tight and let somebody (or something) else do their thing...most people can’t stomach that.
First, we’re wired to just not believe it. (Because of the whole “making money should be hard” thing.)
We get our guard up.
“If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.”
Of course, that guard is there for a reason. It protects you from greed… greed of other people, and your own, too.
Second, we tend to mess it up. If an opportunity doesn’t require hard work, we go out of our way to make it hard and often sabotage our success through endlessly tweaking things, and trying to micromanage everything, and so on.
A great example is this crypto approach Aly and I got into recently.
It was risky. I admit it! We were both curious about it.
It’s one of those things that the less you touch… the better it works.
No, it has nothing to do with finding that one “unicorn” coin and then waiting until it rallies, and then selling it off.
It has nothing to do with technical trading either… drawing lines on charts for days, seeking patterns, buying dips, or whatnot.
It’s something that works by exploiting tiny fluctuations that happen in the market all the time. Bear, bull, sideways, microfluctuations are like the heartbeat of the market. Always there.
Aly and I both invested the same amount of money into this.
I didn’t touch it at all, basically. Not that I didn’t want to… I was busy with other things in our business. Aly wanted to be more hands on, so she really went in and tweaked things to her liking.
The end result was… we both made more or less the same amount of money. Maybe Aly had more fun.
Let me tell you this. The way the entire world is going, you are going to start using something that’s at least related to blockchain. Because sooner or later, everything will be.
And this is not the last time you’ll hear from me about this. It might not make sense for you to join the blockchain or Hive today… but it will in a month, or 3 months, or a year, or 5 years.
I suggest you evaluate this now and make an informed decision. It might make a whole lot more sense NOT to wait.
