Do what you think is right!

Last week,I had an issue with the bank... you know "we love you as a customeer but wait for 45 minutes on the phone - I might have waited longer but I gave up!

When I got to my coffee and paper shop [7/11 Morley] my credit card was back where I was talking to the bank [I didn't have it!] and the phone app doesn't work - who knows why, so coffee in hand the lady who servers me said she would put the money in. Disaster averted.

Today I was half way there but I didn't have money [you know the real stuff] to give here back the "loan". I though about putting it off another day but finally went to a ATM and withdrew cash - much more than I owed the lady but banks only deal in $20 or $50 notes...

when I paid I used the note and the lady said she didn't remember the amount... I suggest something and she agreed - I felt much better! 

The moral: Do what you think is right!

Be yourself!

 I have a couple of examples where I should have but didn't:

I did the tax for someone very close and a difficult question came up. I asked advice from an accountant friend " Who said - Let sleeping dogs lie." when it cam time to take that advice I squashed the little voice and let the Person lodge a return."

Then all hell broke out... A Bill for nearly $50k came instead of a refund for $2k... whose fault do you think it was?? Well I am still wearing the heat from that - and until yesterday was saying it was someone elses fault but it really was mine.

Self Image?

Sometime ago someone close said " you are just an Old, fat, angry" man.

Now I am a little less heavy after losing 20kilos, still od but I am working on the angry bit.

The problem with woreking on angry is that it requires lots of personal intervenions... Like going off grid at times. in the last 48 hours I have had to rethink how I react to a situation because my anger got the better of me. But I am learning to be less angry because it is hard to come back from saying stuff that you can't retract!

Change happens - covid -19 is an example!

There’s no point in trying to escape change.

Change is difficult and uncomfortable, but that doesn’t mean you should avoid it. It can be forced upon us by unexpected circumstances: an accident, a job loss, an illness or malfunction in a machine we rely on.

If your partner suddenly breaks a leg and you need to abandon your usual activities to take care of them, show them what an adaptable, tolerant and responsible person you are — and change accordingly.

The odd thing is, the older we get, the more we grumble about change, yet so many of us have already faced the greatest change of all: going from independence to dependence, with little or no preparation at all. I suppose it’s because it’s something we don’t want to think about too much, as we’re secretly confident we’ll cope when we have to.

Can anybody do NFT's

Can you make an NFT? Well, one would assume so given that when Trevor Andrew as Gucci Ghost (pictured below), and he managed to sell it for $3,600. 

So, technically, anyone can create a piece of art, turn it into an NFT on the blockchain (a process called 'minting') and put it up for sale on a marketplace of choice.

You can even attach a commission to the file, by way of a "smart Contract, which will pay you every time someone buys the piece through a resale.

Much like when buying NFTs, you need to have a wallet set up, and it needs to be stuffed full of cryptocurrency. It's this requirement for money upfront that causes the complications.

The hidden fees can be prohibitively astronomical, with sites charging a 'gas' fee for every sale (the price for the energy it takes to complete the transaction), alongside a fee for selling and buying.

You also need to take into account conversion fees and fluctuations in price depending on the time of day. All this means that the fees can often add up to a lot more than the price you get for selling the NFT.  

Whether or not NFTs are here to stay, for the moment they are making some people money and they're creating new possibilities for digital art. I would, however, advise caution and careful consideration of which platforms to use. 

If you want to get creating, make sure you've got one of the newest and most powerful computers or tablets!

2 Rules to dominate a Social Media Platfrom!

According to Gary V there are only two ways to dominate a sical media platform - be first [ or amongst the first of your niche ] or the best [ for established networks.

So at the moment - being first or dirst in your niche applies to TikTok, Pinterest or Linkedin... I will leave the rest for someone else.

New is Best!

I remember being one of the first people to have a twitter account.... engagement was high and results were great... Twitter works differently now!

Gary V says you should be always looking for the new thing... in 2019 he was talkng about instagram and Tictok... but he said you have to be prepared when something stops working... like Periscope and clubhouse...

The other thing Gary V says you shoud post up to 25 times a day and have somethin diferent for each platform.

The thing I got was that whilst twitter works differently to how it used to [when I had about 10,000 followers I got up to 400 interactions a day - now with 100k followers I am lucky to get 10 interacrions a week.! that doesn't mean it is not working - it is working differently!]

So, I will try to find the newest thing and experiment on it.
