Supply and Demand

Being a successful entrepreneur is all about understanding supply and demand. If you can hone in on a portion of the populous, that is in need of something, and then supply that missing thing at a reasonable cost, you’re likely to make great gains in your business ventures.

Speaking of savvy, cunning business strategies, it’s Girl Scout season, ya’ll!

That means those little money-thirsty, go-getters are EVERYWHERE. Hell, I’m afraid to go near a grocery store these days because those little hustlers get me every damn time and my wallet and waistline can’t take any more abuse.

And if there is anything that perfectly exemplifies the supply-and-demand business model, it’s THIS.



Crypto Uh-Oh

Cryptocurrency has been in existence since 2009 and ten years later, the nature of it continues to be quite convoluted for most.

If you don’t know what cryptocurrency is, you probably should not use this article as any real reference because it’s pretty confounding to me, as well. Essentially, it’s a form of currency that is collected and exchanged through online channels and whose value never really remains the same.

Did that clarify anything up? I highly doubt it. Maybe just google it.

Anyway, a Canadian crypto-company called QuadrigaCX is frantically trying to access information to the CEO’s accounts after he suddenly and unexpectedly died.

Apparently, QuadrigaCX currently can’t access up to $190 million of cryptocurrency because it’s all secured. And, while I don’t know jack about this virtual form of currency, I DO know that $190 million is a lot to lose.
