IT’S TIME TO GET SERIOUS ABOUT CRYPTOCURRENCY Why Randy Is Investing With BlockFi Cryptocurrency is in an odd position. On one hand, it has never been hotter. There are thousands of digital coins in use right now, and the variety goes far beyond Bitcoin. But on the other hand, there are still rumors that it’s a bogus idea that should be ignored. In our view, falling for those rumors is a huge mistake! Not only is crypto here to stay, but now is also the perfect time for people like you to jump on the bandwagon and take advantage of its returns. Crypto is in the middle of a bull market. The cryptocurrency exchange platform Coinbase went public in April and its share price hit $429 on its first day, valuing the company at over $100 billion. Around the same time, Bitcoin valuations climbed above $63,000. Clearly, the concept has traction. If that’s not convincing enough, just look at how the largest tech companies are reacting to cryptocurrency. Facebook plans to launch its own digital currency, Libra, sometime this year. Cutting-edge companies like Tesla, Square, and MicroStrategy are also betting big on the future of digital currency and converting cash reserves to crypto. This is an exciting time in the investment world, and you don’t have to own a large company to take advantage of it. You can invest in cryptocurrency right now and immediately enjoy a high interest rate on your cash — much higher than you’ll find at most banks. The easiest way to do that is to use a platform like BlockFi (, which is basically a bank for cryptocurrency. When you buy in, you can convert your cash to crypto and earn up to 8.6% APY. You can also borrow cash and buy or sell crypto on the platform. Randy and his family are already investing with BlockFi, and Ark Invest CEO Cathie Wood, who predicted the rise of Tesla, says crypto could soon be a key part of the average portfolio. In her vision of the future, strong portfolios will be 60% equity, 20% bonds, and 20% crypto. Investing now will give you a head start. Tesla, PayPal, and Visa all accept cryptocurrency as a form of payment, and it won’t be long before Sklar Technology Partners joins their ranks. We plan to stay on the cutting edge of digital innovation — and in 2021, that means embracing cryptocurrency! I’m not a financial advisor, and this is not financial advice. This article references an opinion and is for information purposes only. Just because I invest in something, like crypto, doesn’t mean you should. Always do your research, contact a licensed investment advisor if you have questions, and never invest with money you cannot afford to lose.

Why do we remember our best and worst experiences and forget pretty much everything else in between? Why are we most comfortable when things are certain, but we feel so incredibly alive when we plunge into the unknown? These are the moments that stick with us — the moments that define us. They’re an organic part of the human experience, and they can’t be purposely created. Or can they? In “The Power of Moments: Why Certain Experiences Have Extraordinary Impact,” brothers Chip and Dan Heath seek to answer these questions and ultimately discern why specific moments can define us. They also explore whether those moments can be purposely created. According to the Heath brothers’ research, positive moments share four characteristics: elevation, insight, pride, and connection. When you look for situations in which you can foster those characteristics, you can create moments that you and the people around you will remember for years to come. “The Power of Moments” is great for anyone looking to leave a lasting impact on their employees or work team. Rather than have your next meeting be about unity — and leave your team grumbling about how that information could have been sent in an email — create a meeting that has, in the words of the Heath brothers, “drama, meaning, and connection.” You can’t bring your team together for a defining moment by just talking about unity; they have to experience it. While the characteristics the Heath brothers describe may seem a little vague at times, rest assured that “The Power of Moments” will give you a fantastic playbook for creating moments that define your team and stick with them.
