Bitcoins Wallet -Easy to Buy and Easy to Sell with Spectrocoin

Hi,

Did you get the words about Bitcoins? I got this message from one of my friend, "Only if I had invested in Bitcoins, when it was only $50, I would be a Millionaire now,"  he said.

These words are 100% true, if you had bought this cryptocurrency a few years back, you would have been a millionaire now. I regretted the same mistake for being blind to this opportunity. 

I created this article, because I want to refer an online wallet for you, where you can easily invest your cash to buy or sell the bitcoins and earn money. Reason I am doing it is because I trust this service and second it has got this referral program, so that anyone can earn commission for referring this wallet to other people. 

Read the article, and if you like it then please sign up free for the wallet using the links I give in this article. That would be my reward for informing you about this money earning opportunity. 

After researching some more articles and news, I decided to invest in Bitcoins, because as per various financial predictions, the price is yet to go beyond $ 10,000. 

Current price of Bitcoins in the month of June 2017 is fluctuating near to $2500 per coin, so if it reaches the above-said in two- three years, I can quadruple the money. 

If you want to invest now, and you don't have the money to buy one or more coin, don't worry, you can buy any less than one coin, anything less than 1, be it 0.1 (BTC) coin or 0.01 BTC, choice is yours.  I searched for the wallets, which offer the bitcoin exchange in easy manner.

I use the debit card for most of the transactions online, so I needed a wallet which provides a fast and secure service. Many of the wallets charge you high fee, but the transactions can take time. I needed a fast exchange service, so that I can buy and sell instantly as the price of bitcoin fluctuate very rapidly.

Spectrocoin is one such online wallet, where you can invest the cash very easily to buy the bitcoins. There are several options of using your several of debit, credit or electronic cards. They claim to have more than 50 options to chose from. Also transactions does not take more than a second. 

I searched for its rating, and it is quite good. Transaction fee can look a bit high, but for good service it seems insignificant.

Documents you need:
1. International Passport - to prove your identity.
2.  A mode of depositing and withdrawing the money (Debit, Credit card, or bank details).

That's it. It takes only few minutes to get yourself and your cards get verified, and deposit the money using the card. After verification, simply use the buy and sell links from your account to start the trading. It is very simple.

They also provide you a service of a hard Spectrocoin Debit card, just like your other bank debit cards, which you can use to transact the money from more than 20+ millions ATMs, from anywhere in the world. 
A typical Spectrocoin Debit Card

News is that many of the retailer websites such as Amazon are accepting the cryptocurrency as the mode of payment. This is one of the reason I believe that the price of the bitcoins is going to rise, it is just the start. 

I wish you all the best, and if you have any query, please ask in the comment box. Click on this link to sign up for a free Spectrocoin Wallet

Morning Rituals of Entrepreneurs - Valuetainment - Patrick Bet David (A Reaction)

Hi,

Do you have certain morning rituals? Today's most of entrepreneurs talk about the morning activities. Our morning activities reflect our whole day, that is what Pat believes.

In this video(link given in references) whose title rhymes with many books' titles  such as "Daily Rituals - How Artists Work" by Mason Currey, or another titled "The Morning Rituals Blueprint" by  James Banner, Pat discusses the "day start" of today's some of  very successful entrepreneurs- Gary Vee, Tony Robbins, Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey, Richard Branson, Simon Cowell, and Tory Burch.


What I am going to do here is,  first list these morning rituals, and then will share my review/reaction with you.


A. Gary Vee's Morning Rituals


Gary Vaynerchuk is a serial entrepreneur and four times New-York times best selling author. His morning rituals are: 
  1. Wakes up at 6:00 AM, reads the news in the bathroom.
  2. For 5 minutes, hugs his kids before leaving the house
  3. Calls his one of the family member while driving to work.
My Review: 
Well, I think 6:00 AM is not an impressive time, but it is okay when you are a family person.

Reading news in the morning is quite not suggested by so many other people, because many suggest other things like meditation or at least do your own work, until reading news is your job, or news is related to your work.  Anyway, I think I still need to know more of such people.

Second point is very nice, and applies to those who have kids, but for bachelors like me, well.. I hope you get my point. Third point is also not very good, I mean either you drive or talk, why to give half attention.
Best selling Books authored by Gary Vee: 




B. Tony Robbins' Morning Rituals

He is well known for various self help books and his business. 

  1. No specific time of wake up, because he travels a lot.
  2. Wakes up, does a cold plunge - meaning submerges himself in cold water for one minute.
  3. Three Primes of the Day -  a) Breathing Exercise (Watch "I am Not your Guru" - Tony Robbins Documentary.)   b) Expressing Gratitude c) Pray
My Review: First ritual is quite valid, second one, well, it is very interesting but can you do that in the cold winters? I can do this in the summers, and surely that will make me energetic, as says Pat. But, for winters, it is a low degree version of cryotherapy.

Three primes are also very good, and I have also observed that breathing exercises fills you with energy. 

Buy the best sellers by Tony Robbins:


C. Mark Zuckerberg's Morning Rituals

Founder of Facebook, and ranked among top ten wealthiest in world.
  1. Wakes up at 8:00 AM
  2. Wears the same shirt everyday
My Review: 
Doesn't sound anything interesting, but wait there is an explanation. Zuckerberg works at night up to 2 to 3:00 AM, so 5-6 hours sleep is justified. He wears the same shirt everyday so that he doesn't have to spend the time to think about what to wear. 

Books on Mark Zuckerberg:



D.  Jack Dorsey (Founder of Twitter and Square)'s Morning Rituals
  1. Wakes up at 5:30 AM to meditate
  2. Jogs 6 Mile.
My Review: 
Seems like the Ideal rituals for a successful person. We know the benefits of meditation and jogging, one soothes and strengthens the mind, and second will strengthen the body.

Jack's favorite books:




E. Richard Branson(the founder of Virgin Group)'s Morning Rituals:
  1. Generally lives in his Island, swims or goes for Kite Surfing if it is windy, and then goes for breakfast. 
  2. Keeps the curtains open, and as the Sun rises, light wakes him up. 
My Review: 
Richard definitely is quite a fun and adventure loving guy. I follow him on the Facebook and Twitter, and I see a number of his posts either Kite surfing and similar things, and generally half naked. 

Best books by Richard Branson:




F. Simon Cowell's Morning Rituals
  1. Resets the snooze button twice before breakfast is served.
  2. Breakfast of hot water with lemon, Papaya juice with lime, Oatmeal, Tea and 3 smoothies.
My Review: 
The thing is that he takes the same breakfast every day, that is a matter of research but a little boring for me though. Simon Cowell is a reality TV show The X-factor' judge, entrepreneur and philanthropist. 

Books by Simon Cowell:


G. Tory Burch (the Designer)'s Morning Rituals

  1. Wakes up at 5:45 AM, immediately checks her work emails.
  2. Wakes up her three boys, and takes a 45 minute of exercise, such as a quick walk. 
My Review:
This sounds good, as one cannot sit to meditate while there are three kids around the corner. It is best to take them for walk as well. Checking work emails is good, because with a fresh mind she can process the information even while walking. 
Books by Tory Burch:




Finally Pat discusses his own morning Rituals.


Pat' Morning Rituals:



He wakes up at 4:45 AM, generally have training session at 5:00 AM, checks his emails, listens to audiobook, reads the self affirmations, which are pasted on walls of his room and bath-room, goes to Gym, takes cryotherapy,  good break-fast, thinking- strategy session, praying and meditating. By 6:45 AM he is gone to work, the time when his kids wake up.
On Sunday, there is no routine, he would just have fun with kids and family.

Books by Pat:


His idea is to treat your body like a machine, a tool, such as a car. If you want your car to go a long way, you have to give it the required fuel and service of its various parts. Similarly, longer your body can work for you, higher success you can achieve by working more hours a day than the others.

For him, it is about filling your body and mind with the energy and enthusiasm, and that is what generally all the successful people do.

Thanks a lot for your kind visit!

India's Top Google Adsense Earners

Hi,

If you search for the title of this post, you will get the names of the following people with their website as given below.
Amit Agarwal
www.labnol.org

Pankaj Agarwal
www.clickindia.com

Amit Bhawani
www.amitbhawani.com

Arun Prabhudesai
www.trak.com

Harsh Agarwal
www.shoutmeloud.com

Jaspal Singh
www.savedelete.com

Rahul Bansal
Website: www.Devilsworkshop.org

Raju PP
www.TechPP.com

Honey Singh
Honeytechblog.com

Srinivas Tamada
9lessons.info

Please note that the list is not in the order of their earning figures, if it is, then that would merely be a coincidence.  The reason being, those figures get changed each month and year, so it would not be a good idea to list out them according to their Adsense income.

But it would be wise to mention that they have been earning more than what almost any other regular earning guy can earn from his full time job in India, even if they are the general managers of the projects.
I heard that the first person on the list, Mr. Amit Agarwal earns almost US $1,50,000 per month.



The purpose of listing out these guys with their websites here, is to make you open their websites and look out for what and how they have been writing. They are the Gurus for the online earners.

Just like you, I also want to get up on that list and become an inspiration for others, so good luck to both of us. I don't want to disclose much about myself here.

Thank You!

Are you a Wannapreneur or Entrepreneur?

Hi, How have you been? I hope you doing good.
Recently, I read this book "Because shit happened" by Harsh Snehanshu. The book was partly a work of fiction and partly story from the author's own life.
Its a story of a IIT student, who ventures his own online enterprise which somehow fails. I am not going to share with you the whole story, what I am interested in is a word 'wanna-preneur' which he used in this book.
Wanna-preneur or Entrepreneur?

I had heard the word 'wanna-be' but it was creatively used here to represent the people like me. If you ask a person what does he want to do?
Generally people give the answer in the form of 'I want to become .....(this and this)'.

The keyword is 'want' which can be used also to tell that you want to become an entrepreneur.

When I say that I want to become an entrepreneur, I qualify for being a wanna-preneur.
Honestly speaking, I have started to earn few dollars a month with my writings but that is very few to call myself an entrepreneur.

I know you might say that comparing the money with the qualification for being an entrepreneur is not the right way to tell if you are an entrepreneur or not. Still, even if I am doing the work of an entrepreneur, such as writing my own blogs and books, I may call myself a writer cum entrepreneur, but if there is no income, nobody knows you.

I am forced to call myself a wanna-preneur because I don't earn much with my entrepreneurial works. I write about 10 blogs online and I have eBooks in my kindle account for sale. This single fact gives me strength to continue to become an successful entrepreneur, someone like, Mark Twain, or someone like Andrew Carnegie.

Still I am a wanna-preneur, what do you call yourself? An entrepreneur or a wannapreneur?

Thanks for your kind visit!

Here is what Selena Soo would do..

Hi,
Have you ever listened to this popular pod-cast titled, "Entrepreneur on Fire"?
Well, if not I must tell you that in this pod-cast John Lee Dumas(host) talks to new generation entrepreneurs, most of them are working online with their own business to earn 5 or 6 figure income per month or may be more, I can't imagine.
John Lee Dumas. courtesy: Google and of course JLD

Although I love whole the interview but, there is one particular question which he asks to every guest. Here is the question:
"Imagine you wake up tomorrow morning in a brand new world, identical to earth, but you knew no one, you still have all the knowledge and experience you already have, food and shelter taken care of, but all you have a laptop and $500, what would you do in next seven days?"
Why I love this particular question is because, this question takes a person who is having success in their entrepreneurial journey, to a person who has experienced the success but again has to start from a zero.
I think this particular state of mind is important to have  with us to become success. Now if I don't have that state of mind we can copy it from someone who has it. We learn everything from others, from taking first step to the last.
Beautiful Selena Soo in front cover of her website

The answer which they provide to this particular question is really important and interesting for someone doing or wanting to do their own online business.
Today this was "Selena Soo" as the guest on the show. I think one interview was not sufficient to know her and her business which started making her a 6 figure money after. Here is what Selena Soo would do with those $500 dollars to create another business.:

"With the money, I would use that money to create experience with people, to build relationships through events, parties. I will basically spend the money on someone else to create relationships.".. excuse me please if, some words are missing.
So, would you do the same thing with the $500 dollars?  I just Googled Selena, she is gorgeous. Okay, I know I am off the track, sorry!..
She gives a huge importance to building relationships with people. Above is the look of her website with her own face in the cover page.
