    Taking ‘Cryptopreneurship’ Seriously with Andy Tully

    Taking ‘Cryptopreneurship’ Seriously with Andy Tully

    Alex talks with cryptopreneur Andy Tully who has made a fortune buying and selling cryptocurrency

    Andy shares his journey and explains how crypto works and how you can get into it. Crypto is the currency of the metaverse and this episode is a great way of understanding more about how it works and how anyone can be a cryptopreneur in both short term trading  and long term investment

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Bitcoin is becoming more valuable as it’s used more
    There are lots of exciting uses for bitcoin and its where people are storing their wealth
    With Crypto, you are your own bank and you need your own security protocols
    Crypto has been designed with decentralisation and safety in mind
    A bank can be hacked more easily than a blockchain
    There may be controls introduced to regulate it but it won’t be possible to centralise it
    The exciting thing with crypto is the metaverse and this will be the driver for it developing further
    It’s the ecosystem of the virtual world and it will grow
    Start with the big exchanges and  the top hundred coins
    Buy at the bottom and sell at the top
    For long term investment research, the coin you are looking to buy and don’t worry about any dips in value 

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘People say it’s just a bit of code but money is just a bit of paper’

    ‘It’s definitely the future

    ‘I mainly trade on price now, if you buy at support and sell at resistance you can make money’

    ABOUT THE GUEST

    Andy Tully

    I am a cryptopreneur

    I have made my fortune by buying and selling cryptocurrency and it’s what I currently do full time to this day. I’m super passionate about crypto as it has given me the freedom to be able to do what I want, when I want, with whoever I want.

     

    Now my mission is to try and get as many people enjoying crypto as much as I do. So I teach total beginners how to start investing into crypto to give them a solid portfolio and investment plan. I teach people that already know about crypto how to streamline their portfolios so they are able to get a steady income stream. I also run an investment fund as not everyone has time to learn so I invest for them.

     

    I wasn’t always a cryptopreneur. I used to be an electrician and had my own electrical contracting company. For about 20 years I’ve been trading the financial markets as a hobby/side hustle this was used to pay for my holidays, renovations, etc

     

    I became aware of crypto in 2015 and purchased my first Bitcoin in 2016 but didn’t really think it was something that would stick around but I have always dabbled in it and kept an eye on it as it started to get more and more mainstream.

     

    March 2020 came and Bitcoin was about $4k. Covid 19 was here and we were all in lock down, this is when I really hit it full time. I had temporarily closed my electrical company and just did crypto, this is when I started teaching people over zoom and how to get in and trade crypto.

     

    So at the moment my son runs my electrical business and I just eat, sleep and breathe crypto and I am truly living the dream.

    Conscious Leadership, raising awareness and the global mission with change agent Julie Hogbin

    Conscious Leadership, raising awareness and the global mission with change agent Julie Hogbin

    Looking at who you are and what you are doing and changing to be the person who can achieve your mission in a conscious way is the key to moving forward in a positive way and

    in this episode, Alex and Julie discuss the process of change that can bring you to a point where you are conscious in the decisions and actions you take as you move towards your goal and fulfil your mission in life

    There is great content about why as humans we do the things, we do and how as  goal-driven creatures we all need to have a mission and goals that we are moving towards in life

    This is a hugely enjoyable thought-provoking episode that has something for everyone, listen in and hear more

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Until we break we think we are okay but it means we only have a limited level of self-awareness
    To actively change you have to recognise there is something more you can be and actively do something different
    You have to admit to yourself that you need help and support
    Getting comfortable and content means it’s harder to change and if you stay still it’s the same as going backwards in a world of change
    You need to act and take preventative steps to make sure you don’t reach a point of crisis
    You have to have a mission that pulls you forward at all times
    The world changes but good leadership and management remain a constant
    The only thing you can control is you, it’s only possible to influence others
    Create the mission, decide on the goals, and work out how you are going to achieve them
    Work out who you need to become and then work on how to influence and manage those around you
    We are all goal-driven creatures so make your goals something you are setting consciously
    Have an intention, pay it attention and you will get the outcome
    Nothing exists in isolation there is a reason for everything

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘You need to step outside of your ego and say there is more to learn than you know’

    ‘We arrive at everything in every moment’

    ‘It’s having a mission, creating a vision, and writing your goals’

    ABOUT THE GUEST

    Julie Hogbin

    I have worked with Leadership and Management teams in the Public and Private sectors for over two decades, more recently with Entrepreneurs building their own business & consistently with people who want to change their lives. I was awarded a prize by the last Partnership I worked with for being Inspirational and a role model – a brilliant moment for my memories.

    I am truly passionate about creating and supporting Leaders. That includes you the individual, Teams and Business that walk the talk, that are congruent and authentic. I will only work with those who truly desire to build and enhance their own credibility and skill set.

    In the day of ‘now’ those who think that the skills of ‘yesteryear’ will suffice will find out differently, all of us, including me, need to continuously develop to keep up in a fast-changing world or we will fade by the wayside.

    It has never been so important to change and adopt new ways of, not only working but thinking and behaving as well. I do what I say so I have my own development plan, Coaches & Mentors – some paid & some not

    The rest of the website will provide you with far more information about what I do and I only do what I am passionate about – I personally can’t see the point of wasting time on ‘stuff’ that does not inspire me

    In July 2011 I made the decision to do something different and being one who enjoys change I set off on a journey which has included Forex Trading, Internet Marketing, Multi-Level Marketing finally resting with Property Investing to compliment my Mentoring, Coaching & Training to create my own Financial Freedom. The journey to date has been exciting and rewarding resulting in me publishing an article, appearing on a SKY Channel, speaking from stage plus lots more

    KEY TAKEAWAYS

    The ability to sell someone the dream and tell your story is key
    It takes a person of vision to motivate the masses. There are lessons in everything it’s about how you choose to interpret them
    You need to understand the value of what you can offer to others. The ‘how’ changes but the ‘why’ remains constant
    It all starts with a story because understanding the person and their journey is what attracts other people

    Challenges are opportunities to explore who you really are and what you can achieve
    You will get better results connecting with people who have problems that you can develop solutions for.

    Understanding  positioning and application is key for businesses
    It’s about taking your customers and turning them into advocates for your business. People are passionate about sharing products that have made a difference to them
    What happens after the sale is more important than what happens leading up to it

    Discipline Equals Freedom – The Morning Habits and Tactics

    Discipline Equals Freedom – The Morning Habits and Tactics

    Everyone wants freedom in some way or another, from time freedom, financial freedom to freedom from pain and chronic illness but where do freedoms come from?

    Alex reflects on the crucial role of building discipline if you want to create freedom of any sort and explains how when you begin your day with three key habits you will be setting yourself up to be disciplined throughout your day. He also shares the tactics that when implemented mean you can achieve high levels of discipline across all your daily routines and ultimately more freedom

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Freedom comes from discipline the more disciplined you become the more freedom you will have
    Waking before dawn doing a workout and completing the least desirable tasks first will create more discipline throughout the day
    As soon as weaknesses arise get angry at them
    Radio silence mode is about always having a plan that is understood well enough to be completed in silence doing what you need to do
    When you get into the habit of laughing
    Silence can help you concentrate fully on successfully completing detailed tasks
    Laughing at challenges makes them less powerful and when you make this a habit and discipline it makes it easier to move forward

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘Discipline begets discipline’

    ‘Follow the key morning habits to create the discipline you need to build freedom’

    Four Thousands Weeks – Time Management for Mortals

    Four Thousands Weeks – Time Management for Mortals

    Alex looks how as life is finite for everyone finding a way to do the things that really matter and experience them completely is the way to achieve what really counts and brings you joy

    With the average life being made up of around four thousand weeks managing your time in the best way should be what’s really important but often we become overwhelmed and make choices that are about being busy instead of meaningful. Alex has great advice listen in and hear more

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    The average life is around four thousand weeks
    To remove existential overwhelm make a list of  your twenty-five life goals in priority order and then focus only on the top five
    Concentrate completely on the first five goals on your list
    You need to create vacancies on the closed list before you move anything from the open list
    Adopt  strategic underachievement and concentrate on doing a few things really well
    Focus on doing well the things that are meaningful
    When you slow down and eliminate being busy all the time everything becomes more meaningful
    Everything becomes more meaningful when you experience it as if you are doing it for the last time
    Get lost in the time and feeling of the experience and it becomes more meaningful

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘You can get caught in the efficiency trap. Stop and break the existential overwhelm’

    ‘Get beyond yourself and put yourself in an emotional state of understanding’

    ‘Embrace the finiteness, get lost in the moment and enjoy the experience’
