My Strategy Over The Past 20 Years...

rhryhrh.png

I've been an online entrepreneur for decades now!

I know, you can't tell by my youthful good looks, but Jongo is OLD lol

And over the years I've seen lots of hype and promise come and go...From 'guaranteed opportunities' to the latest fad that'll make ya rich....I've seen it all :)

One of the strategies I've maintained since I started building business online is as straight forward as it gets...

Slow and steady!

I remember over a decade ago, I used to do consulting and some of my clients had a big prob;em with this strategy I laid out. I used to tell them, every day you are online trying to build something great, a 'new get rich quick' scheme will emerge.

Ignore it, I would say...Stay the course and focus on your big goals. The only way to do that was like I mentioned, ignore the noise and keep grinding.

It was a popular way of doing things in the online marketing / affiliate marketing world...

Because of the lies that were constantly being fed to would be entrepreneurs, they thought they could pay a few bucks and within 30 days living off residual income that would lead the lifestyles of the rich & famous...

And you know what is sad?

That same mentality lives right here in the crypto space as well!

See all the silliness that's going on right now?

What's it all from?

Greed. People's absolutely addiction to those God awful green candles and ignoring true decentralization, real world use case, thriving communities and developers that actually care about their products.

Yesterday on the CryptoManiacs podcast, @blocktrades mentioned why he loved Hive so much. And I'm paraphrasing but it came down to this...

'Hive is a slow and steady blockchain!'

I had to smile from ear to ear when he said that, and I believe this is why I'm so in love with this project.

It taps into my 'strategy' over the past 20 plus years of focusing on consistent growth. Again, I know this is not the popular opinion in the crypto space because sadly, the majority want amazing yields and green candles every day they check their wallets...

Ethereum has all the banks and big investments. Bitcoin has the brand. Crypto influencers talk about this stuff, yet rarely use it...

For me, it's about the big picture. Hive wins because it checks off what I feel is SO vital and important for crypto and blockchain projects...

Use case

Development

Community

Think about it....Most popular crypto projects may have one or two of these 'checks' but rarely if ever, have all 3. Because you can't have all three when you are built with the slow and steady approach to growth.

I guess what I'm saying is....

You are in the right place!

I have seen the hype come and go for 20 plus years. I've been in this crypto stuff too, long enough to hear about the 'next big blockchain' yet it often fails or fades away. Hive is being built (slow and steadily) right in front of our eyes and if you believe in a world changing technology and token(s)...

I can't help but believe, this is STILL the place to be...Even during all the chaos of the markets!

There is power in building slowly, time makes us better and not only in what we are building but also our decision making. Slow and steady win the race

it is better to build slow, steady and strong than fast and volatile.

if you don't believe me see the example of the game axie infinity, they grew too fast and not even their infrastructure could withstand so much growth, then just as fast as it grew it also collapsed

Fantastic advice about the slow and steady growth Jon, it is how we build something that lasts, and Hive is a great example, keep up the good work and stay awesome.

My strategy over the last 20 years was to be born and stay alive. I don't give a shit about dying because everyone I know gives death a 1 star review. They say it sucks but they have never experienced it so idk whether I can trust them.

I haven't been trying to build online income for 20 years like you, maybe 8 or 9 years for me but what I can tell you is all of them were a fuck up, I lost money big time.
Hive is the only different one that earns me money without investing a cent.

So am sticking to Hive if you ask me.

It seems you are at mid 40s right? I am getting there lol. I have invested into two tokens recently BRO and LBI these two tokens give me more confidence and I feel that a lot of people should look upto such projects. Hive is not slow but the consumers adopting it in slow pace. Otherwise Splinterlands has proved that Hive is the most strong and fast chain but we can't battle the minds of consumers.

Slow and steady wins the race. I find myself messing up more often than not when I am rushing things. It will take time for things to be built but I do believe it will be here on the blockchain.

Yeah, it won't happen overnight, but the power in this is the long term vision of the community.

I think the slow and steady strategy is a great way to stay the course and reach one's desired goal. Jumping from one new thing to another looking for the fastest way of growth is like a wild goose hunt. 9.9 times out of 10, you get nothing!

Quickest way to go broke...Jumping from one project to the next, over and over again...

It doesn't matter if you grow fast or slow, the important thing is that you grow solidly. Most rapid growth has no mud foundation and collapses quickly.
I remember a person I met a long time ago. I had been in my country for 2 years and boasted of having a small business. It said "I came here with 200 dollars in my pocket and look at me now." For work reasons I had to do an audit of your company. In reality it was worth nothing, in fact it was 200,000 Euros in debt without counting the taxes owed to the administration.

I just tend to see more solid foundations built on things that take time to develop.
