Jeremy Gardner | Traits of a Successful Businessman

Today I have with me crypto currency investor and millionaire, Jeremy Gardner. We start off with Jeremy telling us the story of where he came to learn about crypto currency, drop out of college, and then eventually acquire Bitcoin. Unable to get funding or loans from firms or investors, he eventually had to resort to liquidating all of his own assets to fund Augur, which in the end turned out to be a good decision. He gives some advice on what people should do to become more comfortable with themselves and be more true to themselves. These include meditation, cardiovascular exercise, and diet, and then he recommends you don’t spend a lot of time on social media and on your computer, but to read books, expand your opportunities, and learn how to learn. “Reading stoicism is just the best way to overcome obstacles in your life, to diminish the ego, to be the best person you can be. I cannot recommend a better school of thought.” 32:53.

Whatever your indulgence is, and it’s great if it can be reading or writing, or jogging, or just listening to music. But for some people we’ve got a more hedonistic side and indulging in that is OK, but it’s finding your limits and never exceeding them.” 34:14
