Finally, someone explained blockchain in plain English

I started investing in cryptocurrency in late 2017. In all honestly, I had no clue what blockchain technology was at the time. My crypto investing fundamentals were based on hearsay and whatever my friends told me about the miracles of investing in bitcoin and altcoins. It’s only after the crash of 2018 that I learnt my lessons. The first lesson among many was about doing your research and one must not forget that, ever.

A few days ago, my 15 years old neighbour told me…

Feeling tired or exhausted all the time, even after a good night sleep? You are not alone. It is a common problem for many and quite a lot of us go through that phase at one point or another. Our lives are so fast-paced with a much faster rate of change that it’s natural to feel dead tired occasionally. But you should not feel exhausted constantly. In this article, we’ll discuss possible reasons why you are tired all the time and some practical steps to deal with them.

Why Are You Always Tired?

Do you feel you are sleeping enough most of the nights, but…


Never chase a coin!

“Bitcoin is going to the moon! It’s a great time to invest in altcoins”, my colleague at work casually told me as we grabbed our lunch.

I was immediately drawn to the idea given the amazing returns cryptos gave in a short period. As someone who has been investing in stocks since 15, I knew this was different. The gains were unbelievably quick and the market was highly volatile.

I decided to give it a go on one condition — I will only invest what I can afford to lose

So, I started investing my vacation and weekend outings money…

Belarusian-American entrepreneur, author, speaker, and now an NFT innovator Gary Vaynerchuk pre-launched his new book Twelve and a half on 27th Aug. The book explores the twelve essential emotional skills integral to life, business and success and provides readers with critical tools to acquire and develop these traits. Without even reading the book, I can tell patience, kindness, empathy, and accountability will be top of the list.

But that is not the coolest part about this pre-launch. GaryVee once again leveraged the potential of NFTs in the most innovative way possible. …


Here’s why I did it and what I learned in the process

A few years ago, I was dealing with a lot of dilemmas in life. No, I was not depressed, nor was I broke. I wasn’t heartbroken, nor was I dealing with illnesses. Life was strangely wonderful!

I was living comfortably in Brisbane, 10 mins walk from the riverside, earning a six figures salary working at one of the largest consulting firms in Australia. Work was challenging but not too stressful. My performance ratings were exceeding expectations. I was travelling for leisure every couple of months.

My health was thriving too. In my early 30s, I was in the best shape…


I have a newfound respect for her and it shaped my perspective about work

My mom does not have a “real” job, is what most people will say. She is a housewife. But the truth is that her work has been nothing less than running a full-fledged startup. After all, she almost single-handedly raised four mischievous kids — my dad, two sisters and me.

A couple of years ago, my mom and I decided to switch roles for a day.

Why?

Because I used to casually joke that cooking is not that hard, and so is my mom’s job. Silly me!

In essence, it meant I would take over household responsibilities for a day…


A vivid memory from childhood that touched my soul.

“Can you get out and let me go in?” I muttered as she gave me a blank stare.

I asked again, this time a little louder, “Can you please get out and let me go in?”

She looked at me, dumbstruck. I was grumbling inside as I signalled her to get up.

Deeply annoyed, I hesitantly sat next to her.

“Why do they make me sit with girls all the time?” I scowl with frustration.

I never liked sharing my personal space with a girl. Two sisters and a mother at home were enough!

I was too young, but I…
