Internal Comms

I can't stress this enough, comms matter. Effectively communicating what you're doing, how you're progressing towards goals, blockers you're encountering, and celebrating wins is critical to achieving top performance. In my experience, teams and individuals who "fly under the radar" under achieve. They get less attention until all attention is on them. How to masterclass comms? Individual contributors: Send a Monday list of things you plan on accomplishing to your leadership and team. Mi...

The Art of Escalation

Spending a decade at a fortune 500 big tech did a lot of good for me and my career, but one of the biggest things I learned was the art of escalation. Coming into the job I carried various entry level sales jobs at non tech firms. I had never experienced politics in the workplace and how to get things done. One of the first things my boss said to me was "escalate early and often". I had no clue what he meant. Literally no one in my life had used the word escalate in this way to me. I quickly l...

Power of the DM

One of my super powers is the direct message or DM. Up until a couple years ago, I reserved DM's exclusively for communicating with people I knew in real life. It wasn't until I became more active on Bitcoin Twitter that I began to notice bitcoiners saying things like DM's open and people encouraging inbound comms if you have questions. This felt foreign and not natural. Why would I DM if I don't know you? DM broke my mental barrier to connect with humans. By sliding in DM and asking an honest q...

Purity Tests

A common FUD that scammers use against maximalists are Purity Tests. This label is applied when a scammer gets shit on for bad ideas and they cry wolf about purity tests and conformity and mean maxis. The more I think about purity tests, the more I am into them.

Bitcoin Trends

If you look at established markets or sectors, finance bros usually produce annual reports that highlight what's happening in the space. These annual reports cover micro and macroeconomic trends, happenings with companies and people, and other "big deals". Two notable reports for reference are from Mary Meeker and Benedict Evans. They both are focused on high tech and economics and there exists nothing like this that focuses on Bitcoin. This is why I'm building Bitcoin Trends. 1 part cha...

Lightning Network and Email Newsletters

Bitcoin is disrupting everything... if you think email marketing won't be disrupted then you can GTFO. Time for some #reckless thoughts.

Influencers, brands, or anyone managing a big list are always trying to get something out of subscribers. This is usually a click on a call to action! Email marketers are constantly balancing wa...

Make Guns Not War

A great meme is one that prompts the receiver to share it. Memes tug on emotions in order to replicate between hosts. One of the classic memes from the anti-war movement of the 60's1 is "Make love, not war". The meme was born out of opposition to the war in Vietnam. It is a great meme because it is short, memorable, and includes to polar opposites, love and war. The meme was painted across bare chests, on posters, and printed on buttons. It is so catchy that is still circulates today. Fast forw...

The Bitcoin Diaspora, a Confederation of Tribes

The Bitcoin Diaspora, A Confederation of Tribes By Joe Rodgers Posted March 11, 2020 Introduction “There is no Bitcoin community” - Everyone This is the battle cry of true-believers and deniers alike. There is no CEO, PR, or speaker for Bitcoin. Bitcoin is decentralized, so there is none of that. So why do people get triggered so easily when people utter the phrase “Bitcoin community”? Surely there is something, but what is it? During Bitcoin’s short existence, it has grown from a small c...
