Bitcoin Latency Solved!

Bitcoin’s Big Problem: Transaction Delays Renew Blockchain Debate

Bitcoin is facing a major problem as the time it takes transactions to be processed has increased dramatically leading businesses to stop accepting the cryptocurrency and others to issue warnings that the problems could be terminal.

The problem is not something that has come out of the blue with those within the bitcoin community as well as researchers pointing to this looming issue for some time. The problem relates to how transactions are processed on the blockchain, the decentralized, distributed ledger technology that underpins bitcoin.

The average time it takes for a bitcoin transaction to be verified is now 43 minutes, and some transactions remain unverified forever. Some of the problem stems from the fact that anyone can add a fee to every bitcoin transaction, which bumps that transaction up in the queue, meaning that those who didn’t pay such a fee — or didn’t pay a sufficiently big fee — may be waiting hours and sometimes even days for a transaction to complete.

This is how it works. When someone uses bitcoin to pay for an item in a shop, that transaction needs to be verified on the blockchain. This is done by what are known as miners, individuals or groups who use massive computing power to solve increasingly complex mathematical equations to mine new bitcoins, which come in “blocks” and are mined about every 10 minutes. These blocks are used to record all transactions made on the bitcoin network, and have a maximum size of 1 megabyte (MB), meaning they can record just seven transactions per second at most.

To put this in context, Visa says its payment system processes 2,000 transactions per second on average and can handle up to 56,000 transactions per second if needed.

The result of the slowdown in transaction clearance rates has led some businesses to give up on bitcoin completely while others are recommending users to switch from bitcoin to alternative cryptocurrencies like litecoin.

The problem grew so large this week that at one point there were 40,000 bitcoin transactions waiting to be cleared — though at the time of writing, that figure has dropped to under 10,000. This drop has mirrored a drop in bitcoin’s dollar value this week, going from over $917 on Friday to under $863 yesterday, according to Gemini's tracker.

The bitcoin community has split into two distinct groups over the past years. The first group is known as Bitcoin Core, the network’s volunteer developers who want to change the way the signatures are stored on the blockchain rather than increase the size of the blocks. The other is known as Bitcoin Classic, a group comprised of developers and enthusiasts who propose the adoption of an alternative blockchain (incompatible with the original) that would increase the block size to 2 MB, a move it believes would increase user adoption.

Bitcoin’s architecture worked well when it was not widely used, but with over 200,000 bitcoin transactions processed every day and a market capitalization of over $14,588,828,445, the system is beginning to creak.

The problem was flagged up earlier this year  by one of the main developers of bitcoin over the last five years, Gavin Andresen, who told MIT Technology Review at the time that the problem with bitcoin’s limited transaction rate "is urgent."

"Looking at the transaction volume on the bitcoin network, we need to address it within the next four or five months,” Andresen said.

Then last January, another core bitcoin developer Mike Hearn penned a widely read missive on Medium, which declared bitcoin a failure. “[Bitcoin] has failed because the community has failed,” Hearn said. “What was meant to be a new, decentralized form of money that lacked ‘systemically important institutions’ and ‘too big to fail’ has become something even worse: a system completely controlled by just a handful of people in China.”

These concerns were backed up last month with the release of a research paper from a large group of researchers mostly affiliated with Cornell University, titled “On Scaling Decentralized Blockchain.” The research suggests that bitcoin would need a complete redesign if it is to support a much larger network of users and transactions.

In a blog post this week, Andresen said that the block size limits are there to protect the network from attacks — and so far that method has been effective. He added that the current problems could be highlighting an underlying problem. “In my view, people are using the block size limit for something it was never meant to do — to influence how people use the bitcoin blockchain, forcing some users off the blockchain,” he said.

It is time for a new evolved enterprise solution.

Enter the impending launch of a new type blockchain that is a POS (Proof of Stake) in contrast to Bitcoins POW (Proof of Work).  A truly exponentially expanded distribution that has no latency and gets even faster as it grows.

The technology is in the phone apps, not big cumbersome Mining Computer systems.

And this prevents the density of miners in one area or country as Bitcoin is mostly mined in China. And there are many reasons to have concerns in that regard.

A new type of Blockchain coin that delivers a wallet that transacts all fiat and crypto currency, comes with a VISA debit card and is part of the POS system, thereby earning you money on an ongoing basis.

MCC (My Crypto Coin)

Launches January 10th on to all the exchanges, it will be exciting to watch how this progresses.  MCC is in the final days of a Crowd Funding where you could fund at any level and find yourself holding a fortune as a result. Do not delay. Come to our meetings. There are only a few days left.

Bitcoin has had quite a month, rising from $725 to a high of $911 today.

Bitcoin has had quite a month, rising from $725 to a high of $911 today.

Part of what is driving bitcoin's price movement is the financial turmoil in China. A weakening yuan in combination with increasingly strict capital controls in the country have driven investor's capital out of mainland china and into bitcoin.

Likewise, since the Chinese government considers bitcoin to be a commodity rather than a currency, it is impervious to foreign exchange regulators – meaning that it is nearly impossible for them to limit its upside.

But, in my opinion, China is only one of numerous reasons bitcoin has been rising.

The Trump effect as well and his embracement of the Blockchain apparent in his cabinet appointments as Kim Dotcom has also predicted Bitcoin to hit $2000 next year giving Trump much of the credit.

But, with it breaking out to all-time highs now, it begs the question, how high can it go?

Let's look at the total market cap compared to other money and sectors.

Bitcoin is currently near $14 billion of total market cap.  If you multiply the total amount of bitcoins available (currently just above 16 million) by its current price you get its market cap near $14 billion.

At $14 billion, bitcoin has nearly the same market cap as silver.

But, when compared to Bill Gates, with a worth of $75 billion, bitcoin is still worth much less than the world's richest man.

When comparing it to companies, like Apple, the world's highest market cap company at $620 billion, bitcoin is still only worth 2% of the value of Apple.

And, compared to the total value of all gold in the world of $7.8 trillion, bitcoin is only 0.17% of that value.

Gold is likely the most similar item to compare bitcoin to.  Like bitcoin, it is a store of wealth and considered by many to be money.

And given the ease of use of bitcoin and how digital the world is becoming, it is fair to posit that at some point bitcoin may be worth as much as gold.

If that were to happen the price of each bitcoin would have to be valued at $487,500.

Another item that could be compared to bitcoin is the value of all fiat money in the world.  It is estimated, by the CIA Fact book, that there is about $28.6 trillion of coins, bank notes and bank deposits in the world.

If bitcoin were to replace all fiat currencies, something in which we speculate is certainly a possibility, the value of each bitcoin would be worth $1,787,500.

Will that happen anytime soon?  Of course not.  Could it happen?  Absolutely.

So, if you think you have missed the boat on bitcoin by not buying it earlier… there are plenty of reasons to think that it hasn't even begun yet.

 

Will Latency Slow Bitcoin Rise

Yes bitcoin has doubled in value over the past year, however as more people turn to bitcoin then more miners are required to ensure transactions are completed quickly. China has a large share in mining pools, however in the past months some of them have been shut down for stealing electricity to power the computers required to solve the mathematics which builds blocks in the blockchain. the longer it takes to produce blocks the slower the transaction becomes.

There has been talk of fork to update the blockchain but there is no consences for this. Implimentation might also prove challenging due to its widespread distribution which perversly adds to it security.

Waiting in the wings is a new coin Mycryptocoin (MCC), which brings together the best of bitcoin and ether, but using Proof Of Stake(POS) to replace mining as all coins will be allocated at launch.

Smart contract and application can be run on the blockchain. Owners walletscan hold MCC and these can be bought and sold within the wallets with links to all other ccyptocurrencies, bank accounts, cards and other payments systems such as paypal. Truly a one stop wallet complete with its own Visa card.

Trump Picks Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Advocate as Budget Chief

Trump Picks Cryptocurrency and Blockchain
Advocate as Budget Chief

Bitcoin Caucus co-founder Mick Mulvaney is the US'
next Director of Office of Management and Budget.

It seems the election of Donald Trump could spell great news for American blockchain startups and cryptocurrency users. President-elect Trump has added to his cabinet an active and vocal supporter of cryptocurrencies and blockchain which means that there will be at least one powerful voice in the US government that will resist further efforts to legislate the technology into oblivion.

Trump picked Congressman Mick Mulvaney, Tea Party Republican, as his administration’s Director of Office of Management and Budget. He is considered a staunch fiscal conservative that wishes to drastically limit the federal government’s spending on social programs.

Just this September he was among the founders of the bipartisan Blockchain Caucus. Commonly called the Bitcoin Caucus by American media, it is meant to help congressmen stay up to speed on cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies, and develop policies that advance them.

Mick Mulvaney

“Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize the financial services industry, the U.S. economy and the delivery of government services, and I am proud to be involved with this initiative,” Mulvaney said in a statement back then.

Mulvaney is also a supporter of Coin Center, a non-profit research and advocacy center focused on public policy issues facing cryptocurrency technologies, which raised over $1 million earlier this year.

“For the past two years we have worked with Representatives Mulvaney and Polis to educate their colleagues through briefings and other events, and the new Congressional Blockchain Caucus will be a wonderful new platform to continue these efforts,” Jerry Brito, executive director of Coin Center said at the time. “Their forward-thinking leadership on blockchain technology in Congress is unmatched.”

Bitcoin Will Rise to $2000 in January 2017

Bitcoin Can Rise to $2000 in January 2017

The Confirming Trends

Trump’s ascendancy will be confirmed in January – a time in which Kim Dotcom hopes to launch his Megaupload 2.0.

Saxo’s projected three-fold increase in the current price of the digital currency – currently at $760 – is similar to Dotcom’s prediction that Megaupload and its potential Bitcoin wallet Bitcache system could take the price of Bitcoin to $2000, based on the claim that the file sharing product would overcome Bitcoin’s scaling problems.

The anonymous cloud sharing, anti-surveillance, video hosting, Bitcoin-caching online service, that will serve the equivalent to the population of the Philippines (approximately 103 mln), is slated for a release in late January. Let’s hope he can pull it off.        

China to exceed growth expectations

On Dec. 1, China restricted the importation of gold in order to prevent capital leaving the country. The country still plans to regulate the importation of gold to avoid the Chinese yuan from leaving the country.

As a huge determinant of the eventual quasi-synchronization in price between Bitcoin and the yuan, the Chinese trading volume will correlate with the price of Bitcoin in the coming weeks even as the Chinese central bank and authorities struggle to recover the value of the yuan which has fallen 5.8 percent against the dollar already this year.

Saxo Bank notes that China is expected to exceed growth expectations in the coming years, adding that the country’s current slowdown has been predictable due to elevated investment levels of around 50 percent of GDP while total debt has swollen to an unsustainable 237 percent of GDP.

Through massive stimulus from fiscal and monetary policies, and by opening up capital markets even more, the country successfully steers a transition to consumption-intensive growth surpassing current expectations and reaching eight percent growth in 2017.

India is ready for Bitcoin

Bitcoin’s price increased following the recent demonetization of the Indian rupee. Following this, there were suggestions that the government could be planning a ban on the importation of gold as the precious metal reached two-year highs in November. This, coupled with the growing awareness of Bitcoin in the world’s second most populated country and the Indian government's resolve to work on Bitcoin and the Blockchain framework before 2018, could push it to a tipping point.

In its Payment and Settlement Systems in India: Vision-2018, the Reserve Bank of India notes that it will be monitoring framework for new technologies/innovations in order to “ensure that regulations keep pace with the developments in technology impacting the payment space, the global level developments in technology such as distributed ledgers, Blockchain etc. will be monitored and regulatory framework, as required, will be put in place.”

This will improve the country’s payments ecosystem, it says, which has been evolving dynamically with the advancements and innovations taking place, particularly in the area of FinTech.

In a chat with Cointelegraph, a spokesperson for Zebpay agrees that there's been no talk of Bitcoin without the mention of India lately and this will continue for a little longer because Bitcoins are the new game changers in the era of cashless economy offering billions of Indians the ability to go cashless using digital currencies.

The spokesperson says: “We skipped the landline generation and have a modern mobile phone infrastructure. Similarly, India has the potential to skip the plastic money generation and build a modern financial infrastructure on this revolutionary technology.”

For Coinsecure CEO Mohit Kalra, India is rising to Bitcoin and 2017 seems promising for its adoption and usage.

"In terms of use, we are hoping to see more merchants start accepting Bitcoin in India. Demonetization and going cashless can definitely help boost adoption rates across merchants, businesses and individuals alike!"

The crypto currency revolution is here. Bitcoin, the blockchain, ethereum, and the accelerating trend breakthroughs in new technology destined to change the world and empower the little guy and gals. Are you prepared for the future of decentralized global finance and blockchain governance? If not, well, it is advisable that you get that way quickly, because this global revolution will top anything we have ever seen, including the Internet itself.

If you position yourself ahead of this massive movement, you are in for the ride of your lifetime, and your finances could be where your dreams actually are, and then some. If you wait for the wave to pass, you could find yourself paddling harder than ever just to get to shore.

In the coming weeks, we will be educating you in everything you need to know about this coming wave in order to position yourself just right. As many of you already know, bitcoin began its rise to worldwide disruption in 2008 and rose from just a fraction of a penny to now around $750 each and steadily rising.

Of course, had you invested $5K to $10K in 2009, your investment would have made you worth hundreds of millions of dollars today. Do you think that would have changed your life some?

You may think you have already missed the boat, that the massive wave of higher than high earnings and the opportunity to invest at the forefront of this wave has already passed you by. Fortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. You are exactly where you need to be.

As with the Internet, it has taken some time for the world to grasp the scope and power of cryptocurrency, and for the technology to develop to the point where mainstream use and practical applications are both imminent and far reaching.

Our global financial world is about to take a whole new look and exist on a completely different platform. User friendliness and blockchain apps are now in a position like never before. Cryptocurrency is ready to go mainstream. Are you ready for the ride?

To get you ready, we will begin with an overview of bitcoin, the blockchain, how this all got started and most importantly, for you, where it’s all going. So be diligent and take the time to get educated now so you will be ready for tomorrow. And not only ready conceptually, but ready also to reach your financial dreams on top of the financial tidal wave of your life.

We will begin with some enlightening education about bitcoin itself, which of course, has made many multi-millionaires during its dramatic and turbulent rise to global awareness.

For those who didn’t invest when the time was right, it is almost too painful to think about missing out on opportunities of this magnitude. But like I said at the beginning of this article, the first wave in the set is not the biggest, an even bigger wave is coming in fast.

So take the time and get yourself ready. You will be so happy when your wave comes in and you are on top of it, riding all the way to financial freedom while the worldwide transformation unfolds under your feet. The best wave in cryptocurrency is still yet to come.

Enjoy this first step video and we’ll see you tomorrow as we build up to the big event.

Digital Alchemy: The greatest opportunity is upon us.

Digital Alchemy: The greatest opportunity is upon us.

I turned 39 when I entered the Internet with my Mosaic browser, Macintosh  and experienced html 1.0 for the first time in 1992.

As it was with the Internet, (I was there at the birth) the pundits and critics claimed it was too complicated and would never succeed. It surged forward and changed the world, made many wealthy and laid the foundation for millions of new inventions. It certainly changed my life. I made a few million myself, but was quick to squander it in those early days.

It was at this frontier I built the first self-replicated website, the first online interactive application, the first self-replicating PDF and by 1996 had built the first automated marketing system, which had the first email auto responder, the first of what was called Traffic Portals and the first massive broadcaster (The Hammer) all of which was the foundation of what is known today as Inbound Marketing. I custom built (private labeled) these Automated Marketing “Social Networks” for over 70 MLM companies in the 90s.

Then came Google.

Like Search Engines and “nobody ever envisioned Google would crush Yahoo” and surge forward delivering more technologies and again changed the landscape of business.

I know I was there.

Next was the emerging Social Networks. Pundits claimed they would represent Web 2.0 and change the industry and become a trillion dollar industry and it did. First to claim notoriety was “MySpace” soon to be crushed by heavy weight Facebook. Imagine buying a piece of Facebook back then like Peter Theil did. He dropped $500k into FB and is now worth Billions. LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Youtube all and mush more turned snot nosed visionaries into billionaires.

I know I was there.

My Bitcoin perspective goes way back to the beginning of the Internet. I remember folks saying the Internet was too complicated and would never really amount to anything. Perhaps many of you do as well.

Fast forward to 2009 and the birth of Bitcoin occurred. It had many ups and downs but it surge forward. If you or I had purchased $1000 worth of bitcoin in 2012 at.008 cents per coin, today that purchase would be worth $93 million today, cash, based on the USD.

It is now being projected Bitcoin will reach $1 million, PER COIN! Many experts agree: Raoul Pal (former GLG Global Macro Fund and Goldman Sachs funds manager) thinks Bitcoin could be worth $1,000,000 USD sooner than later.

Blockchain opens 10 millionth bitcoin wallet after Brexit and Trump boost

fb thumbBlockchain opens 10 millionth bitcoin wallet after Brexit and Trump boost

London-based bitcoin wallet provider Blockchain has opened its 10 millionth digital wallet.

It comes almost two weeks after the company's cofounder and CEO Peter Smith told Business Insider the company would "pretty easily" have its biggest ever month for activity in November, following a surge in use after Donald Trump's shock election victory in the US.

He told BI shortly after the election: "People are basically hedging against economic instability. It's a worrying time to be holding a lot of British pound or if you're America — people flee to safe haven assets. Bitcoin is one of those."

Smith says in an emailed statement on Wednesday: "Hitting this milestone at this particular moment isn’t a coincidence. In the wake of the Brexit vote, the US Presidential election and a weakening Yuan, we have seen unprecedented levels of activity and transaction on our platform, which further suggests that people are embracing the need for a more globally accessible currency system, and one that does not exclude over one-third of the world’s population.

"We are excited to play such an important role in powering the world’s shift to a more open, fair and accessible financial system."

Blockchain lets people download software onto their computer that lets them open a digital wallet to store cryptocurrency bitcoin. The wallet, which lets people store their own bitcoin rather than hold it with Blockchain, can also be used to pay for things using bitcoin.

Blockchain employs around 25 people in London but also has offices in Luxembourg and New York. The company is the world's biggest provider of digital wallets for bitcoin, with over 50% market share, and processes over 150,000 transactions a day on average. It has raised over $30 million (£23.9 million) to date.

The Quest for Greatness

I (we) are pursuing funding for Markethive. It is a long and winding road. In this quest, we have met very innovative amazing people. Case in point James Wilfong a partner owner of an upcoming crypto coin company called MyCryptoWorld has an amazing system that is to the Crypto Coin market as Markethive is to the Inbound Marketing world.

The friendships between MyCryptoWorld, Markethive and Greenfire is growing and is opening up some amazing possibilities. This is what we are talking about this Sunday.

The Markethive Automated Workshop

Markethive is a Market Network

Come join me as I run the workshop system that lifts you up into entrepreneurial exceptionalism!

Markethive is a Market Network. That means it is basically broken down into 3 facets all integrated.

  1. A market platform for conducting business
  2. A social network primarily for entrepreneurs
  3. A SAAS (Software as a Service) Inbound Marketing platform

All systems (Facebook included) have a learning curve. Our focus, our goal, is to deliver to you a gentle intuitive fun and rewarding learning process. We are in the process of turning the entire process into an automated structure. Regardless, this learning structure is designed to build you into a powerful , wealthy, successful entrepreneur.

Are you an entrepreneur? Good question. Not necessarily easy to answer. So here are a few definitions:

The classic definition (I do not totally agree with)
en·tre·pre·neur
noun: entrepreneur; plural noun: entrepreneurs

  1.  a person who organizes and operates a business or businesses, taking on greater than normal financial risks in order to do so

Most people would agree that an entrepreneur is a person who has started his or her own business. But that basic definition barely scratches the surface. It does little to capture the true essence of what it means to be a risk-taker, innovator and individual willing to carve his or her own path in a world that doesn't always take kindly to people who fail to follow the status quo. 

Are you itching to venture out on your own, but you wonder if you have what it takes to choose the road less traveled? Check out what these company founders and business leaders think makes a truly successful entrepreneur.

However, before we venture further defining what exactly is an “entrepreneur” and other aspects breaking it down and related concerns like “venture capital” and the proverbial “entrepreneurial ecosystem, let me direct you along the paths of getting quickluy up to speed, as I believe that is exactly what you need. To succeed, attain structure, stability, vision and ultimately wealth.

Getting into our Workshops:

I made this simple little instructional video so you clearly see how easy it is to assimilate this ecocenter and huge powerful platform.

OK now about being an entrepreneur!

"Entrepreneurship is all about embracing challenges. When you're building something from the ground up, you need to get into the weeds and problem solve. All the weed whacking often allows you to better hone in on a better big-picture strategy — why did this happen? How do I solve it? How do smarter people than me solve it? With a young company, when you experience a new challenge, it's usually a growing pain. So while it can be difficult to get through, it's for the best possible reason — your company is getting bigger!" – Jennie Ripps, CEO of Owl's Brew

 

"To me, entrepreneurship means being able to take action and having the courage to commit and persevere through all of the challenges and failures. It is a struggle that an entrepreneur is willing to battle. It is using past experiences and intelligence to make smart decisions. Entrepreneurs are able to transform their vision into a business. I believe this process is at the core of any true entrepreneur." – MJ Pedone, founder and CEO of Indra Public Relations

 

"Being a successful entrepreneur requires a great deal of resourcefulness, because as an entrepreneur, you often run into dead ends throughout the course of your career. You need to be able to bounce back from losses if you want to be successful. Know that there will be much more disappointment than progress when you first start off, and you need to have a short memory in order to put the past behind you quickly. It's imperative to stay optimistic when bad things happen." – Vip Sandhir, founder and CEO of HighGround

 

"Entrepreneurship is the ability to recognize the bigger picture, find where there's an opportunity to make someone's life better, design hypotheses around these opportunities, and continually test your assumptions. It's experimentation: Some experiments will work; many others will fail. It is not big exits, huge net worth or living a life of glamour. It's hard work and persistence to leave the world a better place once your time here is done." – Konrad Billetz, CEO of Frameri

 

"To me, entrepreneurship is completely dedicating yourself to creating something out of nothing. It's not simply taking a risk and hoping to realize big rewards. Creating something out of nothing also tends to present numerous challenges and roadblocks which seem insurmountable. I believe the great entrepreneurs, who I look up to, can help their team push through those roadblocks and find solutions." – David Greenberg, CEO of Updater

 

"Entrepreneurship is the mind-set that allows you to see opportunity everywhere. It could be a business idea, but it could also be seeing the possibilities in the people that can help you grow that business. This ability to see many options in every situation is critically important; there will be unending challenges that will test your hustle." – Preeti Sriratana, co-founder and CEO of Sweeten

 

"It is not about making a quick buck or deal. Successful entrepreneurs look past that 'quick buck' and instead look at the bigger picture to ensure that each action made is going toward the overall goal of the business or concept, whether or not that means getting something in return at that moment." – Allen Dikker, CEO of Potatopia

 

"Entrepreneurship is a lifestyle, in that being an entrepreneur is ingrained in one's identity. [It] is the culmination of a certain set of characteristics: determination, creativity, the capacity to risk, leadership and enthusiasm. I don't think you can be an entrepreneur without these qualities, and for me, that idea was ingrained in me very early on. An entrepreneur is part of the foundation of who I am, and who I strive to be." – Eric Lupton, president of Life Saver Pool Fence Systems

 

"Entrepreneurship is an unavoidable life calling pursued by those who are fortunate enough to take chances [and are] optimistic enough to believe in themselves, aware enough to see problems around them, stubborn enough to keep going, and bold enough to act again and again. Entrepreneurship is not something you do because you have an idea. It's about having the creativity to question, the strength to believe and the courage to move." – Jordan Fliegel, founder of CoachUp

 

"The journey of entrepreneurship is a lifestyle for many of us; we are wired this way and have no choice. We are driven by an innate need to create, build and grow. In order to be a successful entrepreneur, you must have an underlying positivity that enables you to see beyond the day-to-day challenges and roadblocks, always moving forward. You must also be a master plate juggler, able to switch between thinking, genres and activities moment to moment. Most importantly, you must not be afraid to fail, and you must be comfortable living with risk and unknowns — a state of mind which is certainly not for everyone!” – Justine Smith, founder and CEO of Kids Go Co.

 

"Being an entrepreneur is about giving everything you have when the going gets tough and never giving up. If you truly love and believe in what you're doing, then you must hang in there. Entrepreneurship is not knowing everything about your business. You must humble yourself and not work from your ego. Always be willing to grow, change and learn." – Jennifer MacDonald and Hayley Carr, founders of Zipit Bedding

 

"Entrepreneurship is seeing an opportunity and gathering the resources to turn a possibility into a reality. It represents the freedom to envision something new and to make it happen. It includes risk, but it also includes the reward of creating a legacy. Anti-entrepreneurship is satisfaction with the status quo, layers of controls and rules that hamper forward movement, and fear of failure." – Maia Haag, co-founder and president of I See Me!

 

"When it comes to being a successful entrepreneur, I think one must possess grit. The stakes tend to be high, the bumps in the road frequent. Remaining focused, regardless of the obstacles, is paramount. That said, being an entrepreneur means being in full control of your destiny. If that's important to you, then all of the challenges associated with striking out on one's own are but a small price to pay.” – Mike Malone, founder of Livestock Framing
