podcast 43:06 | Download | spotify| stapler | itunes | Comment

Unless you’ve been living in a cave recently (and if you have, please contact us because we’d love to hear about it), you know that cryptocurrencies have been on a wild roller coaster ride recently. As we have mentioned before, it is a volatile investment, especially when viewed in the short term.

But today’s show is not about that. This is how cryptocurrencies can be: *insert important ‘health warning’ here: this is not advice, just thoughts and views – a practical way to finance other things, like buying a house, and even establish yourself as a relatively low ‘management threshold’ investment, as today’s guest did when she had a baby.

Catherine Lavery He is well known in the business community as the CEO of Best Self, which produces elegant and imaginative planning, goal-setting, and relationship journals. He talks to Dan about how a painful business breakup led him, in part, to create a hands-on course for those who want to learn more about investing in crypto, called ‘Zero to DeFi’:

“It was an emotional drain on me. The topic of cryptocurrencies, just learning about them and getting into them, was an exciting thing for me… I didn’t even talk publicly about cryptocurrencies. Because there is this scam vibe. For example, how do you go from Best Self to talking about crypto… And then at the end I was like, fuck it, I’m going to start talking about this. Because I think that, as entrepreneurs, we are interested in different things. So if I’m excited about working on something, I hope other people are too.”
