Beyond Wealth, Wanderlust & CoinZoom!

With all my EXTRA time during Covid-19 quarantine, I found my to-do list growing longer and longer. I was getting so distracted, but I had so much I wanted to do. Ultimately, I was getting nothing done.

I needed to organize my days, so I allocated specific time blocks for reading, exercise, work, writing, and returning correspondences. Of course, I dedicated 30-60 minutes a day to researching cryptocurrency services & projects.

In my mission to find a company that had all of my favorite crypto services, I was introduced to, Beyond & CoinZoom. I love Beyond’s philosophy of helping people “live their best day ever.” Several years ago, I read a book by Matthew Kelly, and I was introduced to the concept of living as the “best version of myself.” These 2 guiding principles were in harmony, so I decided to explore further.

I know these “doctrines” may sound cheesy, but I love the idea of helping others reach their full potential, just as I am on my very own journey to do the same for myself. It’s easy to live the “mediocre version” of me. Living the BEST version of myself takes consistent, daily work! I’m definitely a work in progress!

After meeting one of the founders of Beyond (via Zoom calls), I realized this wasn’t just a slogan but a guiding principle of the company and its leaders. I decided to explore further, and I became even more impressed with what I found.

Beyond is planning to launch a new digital division called Beyond Wealth, not to be confused with Well Beyond’s health and wellness division. Beyond Wealth is focused on bridging the gap between fiat currencies and the cryptocurrency markets. Beyond Wealth will officially launch on Saturday, July 11, 2020.

What excites me most about this company is that they have everything I am looking for. It’s almost as if Beyond Wealth was created just for me! Hmmm… maybe it was? CoinZoom is their partner, a fully regulated digital exchange, and issues their Visa-branded debit card.

Under the Beyond Wealth umbrella, you will be able to stake your crypto, trade your crypto, and even utilize their AI cryptocurrency trading service called Sigma AI. CoinZoom has a utility token (Zoom Token), reducing the already low fees on the CoinZoom exchange. In my opinion, this is the best place to buy bitcoin. It’s even cheaper than my previous favorite service, CashApp. As a side bonus, I picked up some Zoom Tokens when they were 11 cents. It makes me smile when I look at what they are trading at today.

For those who send money domestically & internationally, the ZoomMe feature allows you to send money instantly and for FREE, from one CoinZoom account to another. Think of all the fees which will be saved instead of using bank wires and companies like Western Union & Money Gram. Once the money is received, it can be spent or accessed through the CoinZoom Visa Debit Card.

When the Covid-19 restrictions are loosened up, and it’s safe to travel again, you can sate your wanderlust with Beyond Wealth’s travel portal appropriately named, Wanderlust. This travel portal allows you to book travel for up to 65% off rates found on the most popular travel sites on the web.

But that’s not all folks…

Beyond Wealth also gives you access to their Velocity Nodes. This is an amazing program that I’m NOT sure I fully understand yet, but be sure I will be studying this in more depth. Don’t quote me on this, but from what I comprehend so far, you can purchase or lease a Velocity Node, and you can earn guaranteed residual monthly payments from companies that need to expand their blockchain network. I’ll share more as I learn more…

Finally, they created the robust, Infinite Success App, which can help you share ALL the amazing products and services that Beyond offers. If you would like to join their affiliate program, this app will be your favorite tool. You can invite people to claim their FREE gifts by joining the Infinity Line for FREE. With a few clicks of a button, you can easily send an invitation to your contacts phone or email.

If you have Facebook and would like to join the Beyond Wealth Infinity Line for FREE, you will receive an upgraded CoinZoom account as well as a Visa Debit Card, which you can use to spend your fiat & crypto anywhere Visa is accepted. As a bonus, you can earn up to 5% back with this Visa Debit Card.

Can you tell I’m excited??? I’ll share more as I learn more… You can read more about, Well Beyond & Beyond Wealth here:



Bitcoin Musings, Getting Things Done and Stacking Sats

On October 20, 2019, the 18 millionth bitcoin was mined. It took 3,935 days to mine 18 million bitcoins. That’s just a few months shy of 11 years. As you may or may not know, there will only ever be a maximum of 21 million bitcoin in existence. More than 85% of all bitcoins have already been created. It is estimated to take over 120 years to mine that final bitcoin in the year 2140.

On January 3, 2009, Bitcoin was born when Satoshi Nakamoto mined the genesis block, which created the first 50 bitcoins. Every 10 minutes, a new block is mined, and a bitcoin reward is awarded to the successful miner. The bitcoin reward for the first 210,000 blocks was 50 bitcoin, then it was cut in half to 25 bitcoin.

When 210,000 blocks are mined, a “halvening” or “halving” occurs, which cuts the block reward in half. On average, the block reward is cut in half every 4 years. On November 28, 2012, the reward was cut from 50 BTC to 25 BTC. On July 9, 2016, the reward was cut from 25 BTC to 12.5 BTC. The next halving is estimated to occur in 7 months on May 20, 2020, when the bitcoin reward will be cut from 12.5 BTC to 6.25 bitcoin per block.

As bitcoin gets closer to reaching its maximum mined capacity, it gets harder and harder to reach the final finish line. I’ve noticed this is the same with many of my projects.

Yes, getting started may be the most difficult step for most people, but the initial rewards usually come easily once you get started. It’s reaching the final pinnacle, which can require the most energy and resources; the final mile, the final paragraph, the perfect finishing touch.

I’m currently working through several projects which I intend to complete before the end of the month. I was thinking about the project on my desk. I completed most of it in the first week I worked on it, but it takes a second week and sometimes a third week to complete the final 25% of the project. If I stay on schedule, I will finish this one tomorrow, and then I can complete the final 2 projects over the next 8 days in time to pass out candy on Halloween.

I know I am a perfectionist, so I’m acutely aware of my internal battles with procrastination and perfection. This year has been a struggle, but the philosophy of done is better than perfect has been my guiding light.

I am aware that 85% perfect is usually more than enough for most of my projects to pass with flying colors. Only a small, select few would notice the difference between my 85% and 90% perfect. In the time it would take to go from 85% to 95%, I can usually complete a new project in that same time period. So, for the sake of completing additional projects and keeping my clients happy, I will celebrate 85% perfection.

So, how will I celebrate the completion of my next project? I’ll continue “Stacking Sats” and buy some bitcoin. Bitcoin is on SALE at the moment (hovering at $7,400 per BTC as of October 23, 2019).

What does “Stacking Sats” mean? A bitcoin can be divided into 100 million units. Those units are called satoshis, in honor of Satoshi Nakamoto. Like a penny is the smallest unit of a dollar, a satoshi is the smallest unit of a bitcoin. I’m stacking my pennies so that I can stack sats. Bitcoin, here I come!



Wishes Come True, It’s All Relative and We Bid Farewell To 2018!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already the last day of the year. It seems like just yesterday I was writing my new goals after hiking to the top of Inspiration Point. Note to self, dust off your hiking shoes and get ready for the beautiful view from Inspiration Point TWICE this week.

As I look back on the year, there were a lot of great things which happened. I met some fantastic new friends, I reconnected with friends from my past, I read a lot more books than I did in 2017, The Burrito Project expanded across California in 5 major cities and I was able to launch several new businesses.

On the flip side, there are quite a few things with LOTS of room for improvement this year. While managing 5 seperate businesses, I felt bombarded by phone calls, email & texts which were seriously limiting my productive work time during the day. I thought outsourcing all of the communication to someone else was the answer, but it created more problems.

In an attempt to wean myself off social media, my phone and almost all electronic communication, I attempted to have my assistant(s) return my emails and phone calls for me, but too much fell through the cracks. I ended up creating more issues with my clients and friends due to non communication which could have easily been prevented with a simple phone call.

A new business coach recommended creating boundaries with a time schedule for when I returned phone calls, texts, emails and participated in social media. I’m excited to put this tactic to the test this year, so expect to hear from me more consistently. It’s difficult to give that personal touch when it’s not me giving that personal touch. I guess sometimes I need to learn things the hard way.

It’s all relative, so beware when you compare yourself to other people. I like to have an idea of what’s going on around me, but I prefer to focus within, versus without. One of the reasons I like setting goals is to see how I measure up to my past performance and accomplishments. I’ve always liked setting goals which make me stretch, but I also sprinkle in some simple goals just for fun.

Some of my simple goals are making my bed, reading for 30 minutes a day and spending 15 minutes a day organizing something in my bedroom or office. One of my goals which I need to actively work on to complete is reaching 20,000 steps per day with my fitbit.

Some friends tell me I should set my daily goal to 6,000 or 8,000 so I’m guaranteed to hit it everyday. Although I’d love to hit my personal target EVERYDAY, and that is my continued goal for 2019, I’d much rather miss my target goal of 20,000 steps and settle for 16,000+ steps. For comparison, my friend is completing his/her goal everyday, while I only hit my goal a few times a week. Now, when you compare actual steps for the week, I’m usually in the lead. I’m twice my friends size, so maybe I should be hitting 25,000 steps per day. It’s all relative! =)

If you’ve had a chat with me this past year, you probably know I love cryptocurrencies and will chat crypto almost anytime and anywhere. I was analyzing the market in 2017 and I officially entered the market in January 2018. I made my first purchase of bitcoin on CoinBase and while I was waiting for my bank transfer to go though, BTC dropped from $15,500 to under $12,000 in the 7 days it took before the transaction was complete. That was the perfect introduction to the volatile world of cryptocurrencies for me. Wow!

Despite that almost 25% drop in BTC value, I was even more curious and started mining bitcoin, dash & ethereum. Among my fellow crypto enthusiasts, we would talk about missing the opportunity to buy BTC at prices below $10,000. Well, as luck would have it, bitcoin has been below $4,000 for most of December 2018. I guess wishes really do come true. Thank you Santa for the HUGE sale on BTC. These low prices have more than made up for the high prices I paid earlier in the year! Yes, bitcoin is about 20% of what it was a year ago in December 2017, but for comparison, BTC is 4 times HIGHER now in December 2018, than it was in December 2016. I guess everything really IS relative. 😉

Mining is no longer profitable with the price of BTC so low, but trading has been very nice to me. It just goes to show, when one door closes, another door opens. I’m excited to be trading bitcoin and etherium over the next year and look forward to turning on those mining rigs again when the price rises to a profitable level.

As we bid farewell to 2018, I hope you learned a lot this year and can apply your new knowledge to the next 365 days and beyond. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!



Bitcoin Mania and Hashrate Opportunities within the BlockChain

I have watched bitcoin rise in value from a few pennies per bitcoin coin (in 2009) to now over $16,000 per bitcoin (as of today, December 26, 2017 the value was $16,198 per bitcoin). It’s amazing to see such an idea gain traction and take hold in the world in just a few short years.

Is this our century’s gold rush? Another “dot com” chance we may have missed a decade ago?

I was watching a show on Netflix and I learned that one of the characters in the series made his family fortune during the gold rush, not by finding gold, but by selling supplies to the miners who were searching for gold. The idea struck a chord with me. Supply the miners with what they need as they pursue their fortune, and your fortune will be made as well.

Over the holidays, I noticed the buzzword of the season was bitcoin. When I asked people what they knew about bitcoin, the answer I heard most often was “I don’t know much, but I wish I got onboard earlier.” It seems like so many people want to be involved with the cryptocurrency market, but many feel like they have missed the bandwagon.

I think that the bitcoin value may be a bit inflated, but because of the nature of bitcoin and its ease of use internationally, it will only grow in value as awareness grows in this country and within the different sectors of the world.

Do I think it’s a safe investment?  I’m not a professional investor, but I’ll tell you that I’m going to jump on the bandwagon this week. I want a piece of this currency because I think this will be a widespread, legitimate alternate currency within the next few years.

Even today as I went to lunch with a friend, we used venmo to split the check. It was an easy and simple “virtual” transaction which transferred funds between each other. As this type of transaction gains familiarity, bitcoin will make more and more sense within the worldwide market, since bitcoin can be used easily around the globe.

As I’ve been looking at the cryptocurrency market, it seems that the safest way for me to enter this market sector is to join the blockchain mania through mining. Through mining I can leverage the power of hashrate and earn bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies through a mining contract.

One of my favorite quotes from the 1989 movie, Field of Dreams is: “If you build it, he will come.” When I am focused on an idea or a goal, I notice that the answers to my questions seem to fall in place right in front of me. Earlier this week, I started writing down my longterm and shortterm goals. One of my long term goals is to get my pilot licence. Today, as I was chatting with my Lyft driver, it turns out he is a flight instructor at my local airport. Was that coincidence? Maybe. Maybe not. Either way, I welcome the information.

Another goal was to enter the cryptocurrency market before the end of 2017.  As I was investigating several options this month, one of my business partners (who I “randomly” met in an elevator at the Building Department earlier this year) brought up cryptocurrency and I learned about a company which sells hashrate for cryptocurrency mining. This sounded like the perfect answer to my question. After hours and hours of research, I decided that this is the company I’m going to partner up with.

I joined a TEAM who are pooling their resources to sell hashrate for cryptocurrency miners. Sell to the miners what they need and we can profit as well. It seems like another answer has fallen into my lap.

If you’d like to learn more about mining cryptocurrency (like Bitcoin, Ethereum & Zcash), and what hashrate can be used for, feel free to reach out to me.

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2019: When, OmniaTek and Neo Mine Tech. both closed their doors, I kept my eyes and ears open for a company which looked reputable and I could trust with my hard earned money.

I’ve done some mining with HoneyMiner and I am happy with their services. It might be more cost effective to just buy BTC from an exchange, instead of mining it, since the current price is so low (currently hovering at $8,000 as of September 2019).

I’m also aggressively looking into Cloud Token 2.0 as a potential company to utilize for arbitrage crypto trading. I downloaded a free wallet and I’m trading some BTC using JARVIS. If you’d like to test out their products with me, please join me for the ride.
