The truth is, you never own bitcoin.

Even if you have a wallet running on your personal computer, all you own is a private key—or collection of private keys—that allows you to control a Bitcoin address.

On February 28, 2014, Mt. Gox filed for bankruptcy. Shortly before that, the online Bitcoin exchange froze user accounts and shut down all services. To their surprise and dismay, hundreds—if not thousands—of users lost access to their Bitcoin. Mt. Gox account holders are currently involved in lawsuits against Mt. Gox and the company’s CEO, Mark Karpeles. There […]

A lot of people forget this. Bank runs are a symptom of free markets, and it's truly beautiful (though sometimes it hurts).
Bitcoin bank runs are good? This author proves why this event is good.

Why Self-Leadership?
http://johnrmeese.com/self-leadership/

Although a leader of thousands, Alexander the Great lost his horse, many men, and ultimately his life when he let himself be consumed with fear, uncertainty, and doubt. As his self-discipline faltered, so did his ability to lead others.

His people followed him into countless battles over nearly a decade of war, but there came a breaking point where the people could no longer believe in his dream. Distrust turned into rebellion, because the people were no longer convinced that Alexander could lead wisely.

If you wish to lead others, you must start by leading yourself.

New post! I've recently refocused my writing around leadership of the self. A number of people have asked me why, so here 'tis!
I’m passionate about leadership of the self, because anyone who wants to make an impact on others needs to start with the person in the mirror. I believe most people have some desire to change the world, but many don’t think they have what it takes. The real truth is that anyone can make a difference, if […]

Story
Tagline
Writer & public speaker. Productivity enthusiast, self-leadership advocate, and Bitcoin aficionado. On a mission to change the world.
Introduction
I write on all things related to self-leadership, productivity, and public speaking at johnrmeese.com. I also write a lot about Bitcoin, and any other topics I think help me or my followers further along the journey of world-changing self-leadership.

I’m passionate about leadership of the self, because I believe that anyone who wants to make an impact on others needs to start with the person in the mirror. I've known some effective leaders and some not-so-effective leaders, and the key difference I saw always came back to self-leadership.

I am a core staff member of Orthodox Christian Fellowship, the official Campus Ministry organization under the Eastern Orthodox Assembly of Bishops. I am also a lifetime member of the Bitcoin Foundation, and a co-founder of the Nashville Bitcoin Meetup. I live in Murfreesboro, TN with my wife, Rachel, where we attend St. Elizabeth Orthodox Church.

The hotel property is immense, with multiple buildings (I stayed in #15). The buildings aren't very pretty from the outside, but inside they're very nice and have all you'll need. The free w-fi is nice, as is the pool area and guest laundry services. The staff are very friendly, as well.

Rachel is friendly, highly professional, and was more than happy to accommodate our needs as our wedding photographer. Her and her assistant got us fantastic shots, while remaining a pleasant addition to our wedding party by maintaining a positive attitude. Some of her prices seemed a little high at first, but she made sure to include top-of-the-line add-ons like an online album, full reprinting rights to _all_ of our photos, and even a surprise pack of prints she shipped to us free of charge after the wedding! Rachel is a pleasure to work with—I highly recommend you consider her for your photography needs.

St. Elizabeth's is a loving, welcoming parish. The services are beautiful and they are communally grounded in Scripture and the Holy Tradition of the ancient Church. The parish has about 100 attendees on an average Sunday, and the Church members are very active and involved with various elements of the Church's ministry both internally and in the city of Murfreesboro.

I have a friend who lives nearby and eats here regularly. The servers obviously knew him, and had a good banter back and forth. The food was pretty good, and I happily took some leftovers home for later. Wish they had a hard cider on draft or carried Angry Orchard, but bottled Woodchuck is alright.

Love the place. Al Capone used to get his hair cut there, and I get the same treatment for much less money than he had. Also, they've offered either a half-priced or free pool game with any haircut.
