A lot of us are just now learning about and trying to become digital entrepreneurs, but my guest Jeff Berwick has been one for over 20 years. Back in the 90’s, while working at a bank, he created the website www.StockHouse.com which had ~20,000 subscribers. The site was basically the MarketWatch.com of Canada. After growing to 250 employees in 12 countries, Jeff experienced the Tech Bubble crash and found himself with only 12 employees all in Canada.
After reading The Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin, Jeff decided to sell StockHouse.com and travel the world to find economic truths. He had figured out that the government’s money (aka fiat money) was a fraud and a ponzi scheme and dedicated his life to helping others see this truth.
In 2011, Jeff was introduced to Bitcoin and it changed his life. Not only was Bitcoin a global currency, it was also not controlled by a nation state and was limited in supply. Jeff quickly realized that this mean the Freedom of Money could once again be had by the general populous. He created a successful economic and investing newsletter called The Dollar Vigilante to help others understand the fraud of paper currency.
Since then, Jeff has created the Anarchast podcast as well as the “world’s largest Anarchist Conference” in Anarchapulco (where I will be speaking in Feb 2017).

“Money is just a tool to transfer value between two people”
“How is being an Entrepreneur any different than just being human and living life?”
