  • I’m interested in working for Bitcoin but atm it’s hard to find these kind of sites. At the moment it seems quite hard to benefit from Bitcoin unless you have purchased Bitcoins through your current accounts as investments. However, as someone noted somewhere else, buying and selling goods for Bitcoin online seems to be hard. How can Bitcoin make a real difference while it’s still not a feasible currency for most of us?

  • I’m an assistant teacher at a private elementary school. I have a B.A. in English and no teaching credential. I worked as a tutor and at an after school program before. Basically I have no work experience outside of education. Last week contracts for the 2016-17 school year were sent out and I did not get one. My principal spoke to me about it. She said that I was doing a great job and was one of the most efficient people she’s ever met. However, she said that I did not seem happy at work. She said that other people have a hard time getting to know me. I’ve basically lost all will to work since then. My head teacher thinks my contract will be renewed and she always speaks highly of me. She even said today that “Next year you can work on designing the social studies curriculum.” She knows that I did not get my contract in the mail (she asked) and she’s probably talked to the principal about it. I’m upset because I feel like I’ve worked so hard for the past 6 months, yet it’s likely that I will be fired just for not being social. Perhaps education is the wrong field for me. I think if I just quit now then I can still get a positive reference/recommendation from my employer. However, I have no other skills. I still have 6 months (my paychecks are spread out over 12 months but there’s only 3 more months of school) so it’s possible that I can re-train myself during that time. Any ideas of what I can do?

Then the top four finalists will make their case before our premier panel of FreedomFest judges to determine the winner of the $50,000 prize. The invited judges are Steve Forbes, John Mackey, Peter Thiel, and Donald Smith, all experienced business leaders. And all attendees will get to vote as well, using the FreedomFest APP, so be sure to be in the room for this on the final day of FreedomFest. Two successful entrepreneurs, Brian June and Tom Matzen, are in charge of the FreedomFest Ca$h Vault. Using the FreedomFest app, attendees will also help them determine the top four finalists to go before the FreedomFest judges, with a chance to meet them and here their pitch during FreedomFest. Democratic capitalism at work! Brian and Tom will guide you through the entire process. Make your dreams come true. If you have a for-profit business in progress or on the drawing board, sign up at Special Note: Last month we met up with Barbara Corcoran, one of the members of the popular Shark Tank TV show, and told her about our idea, and she loved it. It was she who came up with the name, “The American Dream Award.”  Thanks, Barbara!
