I had the opportunity to travel to Amsterdam earlier this year for a Lenovo event we hosted with some EU colleagues. Before my travels I read an article in Travel Noire. There’s so much more to Amsterdam than weed culture, but there’s no denying that it’s a huge draw. I wanted to dive deeper and reached out to Co-founder Taraq who was happy to have us use his place as our venue.

Water & Brood's mantra is Good Food, No Bullshit”. It's a chic restaurant located near many of Amsterdam’s famous museums and attractions where owners and brothers Rachid and Taraq Hok-Ahin serve everything from chicken and waffles and acai bowls to dishes inspired by their Surinamese roots.

Taraq and I cover:

  • Going to school with a greater purpose
  • How he got into the restaurant business
  • The challenges of opening and running a restaurant business
  • Logistics considerations in the restaurant business (margins, competition, menu, product, etc..)
  • Difference between a coffeeshop which sells weed and cafe
  • and more!

Bailey Richert is Founder of Virtual Summit School and Host of the Infopreneur Summit. In this episode - we discuss what a virtual summit is, how to get started, tips on tech setup and general building awareness around your brand.
 
For years Bailey was caught up in the ‘rat race' as she followed what she was taught was the ‘right path' in life. A high school valedictorian and magna cum laude engineering university graduate, Bailey took a job for many years working the 9-to-5 consulting grind in California. The cubicle life would never allow her to achieve the dreams, goals and ambitions she had. So she decided to make a change and the journey began and continues today.

 
Bailey and I discuss;
  • Her decision to leave the corporate world and why this may not be for everyone
  • What and Why a Virtual Summit?
  • Benefits she realized from hosting 4 virtual summits
  • Steps to starting your own
  • ROI on a virtual summit
  • and much more...

I was excited to sit down and have an interview with Ravinder Deol, who is a a Certified Bitcoin Professional and after absorbing a lot of his content, he has one of the more sensible approached to how we approach this new financial revolution.

He's been involved in the Cryptocurrency and Blockchain space since 2013, and has seen it grow tremendously. He said he saw a white space in the structured education of it all. So he's taken it upon myself to help you get all the knowledge you need in one place!
Initially he started out by teaching live classes which then lead to the creation of B21 Block, where along with a team of co-instructors the goal is to bring high quality, engaging and practical Cryptocurrency and Blockchain education online. As of this date he's had over 83k students and currently 23 courses available but he's kind enough to help answer some of our questions here. So without further
