    Noah Franske, Bitcoin, Investing & Teaching Math in Vietnam

    Noah Franske has a passion for math and for adventure. That combination has led him to Vietnam where he has been teaching math at an international school for the last 18 months.
    One of his math-related interests is investing and personal finance. A portion of his investment portfolio is devoted to cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin.
    In the conversation, Noah helps me talk through some of my recent thoughts regarding crypto and the stock market. He also explains what the pandemic has been like in Vietnam as an ex-pat. Plus we explore the term "ex-pat" and how it's not used in the United States.

    Krizia Almoite, The Photoshoot & The Photographer (Krizia Studios)

    Krizia Almoite, The Photoshoot & The Photographer (Krizia Studios)

    Krizia Almoite has not been a photographer for long. When she lost her job in the middle of the pandemic, Krizia put nearly all of her time into making her newest interest into her new career. In under six months she's landed some big clients and was hired as the photographer for a new movie being filmed in Minnesota.
    She's building a growing brand through social media by being the same open and unbashful person I've always known her to be. Krizia is opiniated, expresses her self freely, and attempts to bring out the best in the people around her. 
    Through her self-expression, I realized that I too was someone that could have a photoshoot: a thought that I had never considered before. As I post the photos from my photoshoot around the release of this episode, I'm learning to be confident about my appearance in a new way. And I have Krizia to thank for that. Perhaps you would like the same for yourself?
    See the photos I've posted so far on my Facebook page @curt.carstensen and on Instagram @curtpiks. Be sure to add or follow me while you are there.
