CW 910 - Fake Work & Bitcoin Bubble? Mark Sanborn - The Potential Principle, The Fred Factor, Up, Down, or Sideways, National Speakers Association
Jason Hartman starts off this 10th episode with a look into the "tulip bubble" in cryptocurrencies that he's afraid is going to explode. It's taking more and more energy to "mine" Bitcoin these days, and this fake work is causing real damage to our environment. Jason explains what he thinks will eventually replace cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, and also announces the newest addition to the Meet the Masters event in January.
In his 10th episode interview, Jason talks with Mark Sanborn, author of the new book The Potential Principle: A Proven System for Closing the Gap Between How Good You Are and How Good You Could Be, about how to traverse The Potential Matrix and create a better self. No matter how your life has been going, there's always room for improvement.
Mark offers some tips on activities you can do to better yourself, as well as some talk about The Fred Factor, and why it became (and remains) such a success.
