Being an Achiever

Thursday, August 6th, 2015

Money, in the form of early coins, came into usage largely […]

Selecting Projects Wisely

Friday, August 29th, 2014

Sometimes people dive into new projects because they really want to make some money or to “get something going.” They put pressure on themselves to start a project mainly for the sake of trying to create some forward momentum.
