Happy International Women’s Day! Big hugs to all my female readers and supporters.
I want to share something that has caught my interest this year, mainly thanks to my younger brother and sister bringing it to my attention. They are both online traders but have interest in cryptocurrency and alternative income streams. Cryptocurrency seemed like something alien and not to be trusted a few years ago, but I am assessing my financial security such as it is, and now I feel it is time to explore new methods for creating income.
For me, the traditional 9-5 job does not apply as I am happier working for myself in various niches. I need a reliable source of income from somewhere. Could cryptocurrency be the answer? Here is an article that dropped into my inbox, and I felt it was worth sharing.
