    An immediate bestseller in 1859, Self-help propelled its author to fame and rapidly became one of Victorian Britain’s most important statements on the allied virtues of hard work, thrift and perseverance. Smiles’ most celebrated book sold 20,000 copies in its first year, became known as the ‘bible of mid-Victorian liberalism’ and is the prototype of today’s motivational and self-help blockbusters. Steve Shipside’s brilliant interpretation of Smiles’ Self-help enables twenty-first century readers to put into practice the insights of one of the world’s most famous self-improvement books. Discover:
    • Why being true to yourself will help you avoid debt;
    • That learning to sod the Joneses is the key to happiness;
    • How to get back on the horse and learn from failure;
    • Why every moment counts when it comes to self-improvement;
    • That learning to visualise victory can help you achieve your goals.
    This interpretation of Samuel Smiles’s Self-help is not a substitute for the original. Its purpose is simply to illustrate the timeless nature of Smiles’s insights by bringing them to life in a contemporary context. Samuel Smiles’ Self-help is an enlightening, entertaining accompaniment to one of the most famous and inspiring books ever written.

    When three Boston securities executives pooled their money together in 1924 to create the first mutual fund, they had no idea how popular mutual funds would become. The idea of pooling money together for investing purposes started in Europe in the mid-1800s. The first pooled fund in the U.S. was created in 1893 for the faculty and staff of Harvard University. On March 21st, 1924 the first official mutual fund was born. It was called the Massachusetts Investors Trust. 
    After one year, the Massachusetts Investors Trust grew from $50,000 in assets in 1924 to $392,000 in assets (with around 200 shareholders). In contrast, there are over 10,000  mutual funds in the U.S. today totaling around $7 trillion (with approximately 83 million individual investors) according to the Investment Company Institute.

    Do you truly dare to believe? 
    How many times did you feel you were cheated out of success?

    How often has success just become a meaningless buzzword? 
    We've all been there. And the reason we have is that we have no fundamental appreciation of the ability to believe.  
     
     
    The ability to believe is something that requires practice and understanding. No one is asking you blindly trust something or someone. 
    Believing is not about trusting someone or trusting something, believing is about knowing your place in the universe and that the universe is right behind you in all that you do, and all that you need. You have to learn to believe in the reason you are here and the reason you are designed and destined for greatness.  
     
    The core of your success and the ability to look past all the distractions is to be able to believe in the larger picture, not the one that you are staring at, point-blank, at the moment. 
    Belief will get you through every single stage of your life. It will let you jump from one success to the next and it will turn your life around on the condition that you know how to do it.  
     
    This book lays out the different ways most of you can get to observe that areas that can inspire belief and the areas that you will be able to harvest the ability to believe and go on to make yourself a success.

    Our lives are becoming more and more digital everyday. This is true for money as much as anything else. 
    In 2017, cryptocurrencies have moved from something a small-dedicated group of people paid attention to into a much larger public view. As with any new society changing technological advance there are investment opportunities that can and will make a fortune. There are also even more ways to lose any money invested just as in “.com” boom of the late 1990s. 
    Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve said “[Virtual Currencies] may hold long-term promise, particularly if the innovations promote a faster, more secure and more efficient payment system.” While Warren Buffett, CEO, Berkshire Hathaway said “Stay away from it. It’s a mirage, basically.” Whose right? Actually, both. 
    There will be dominant winners like Amazon, Facebook and Google in the internet space in the cryptocurrency market. There will also be many more eToys, Pets.com and webVan’s – companies that raised hundreds of millions of dollars during the late 1990s and went bust within a few years. 
    This book provides a broad view of the cryptocurrency market that includes Bitcoin and goes far beyond it. What most people don’t realize is there are three sectors in the cryptocurrency market today.  The three sectors are 1) cryptocurrency as currency; 2) platforms that enable software developers to build app like functionality in purpose built cryptocurrencies; 3) purpose built cryptocurrencies meant to better address the needs of business or consumer use cases better then traditional currencies do today. 
    This book provides the history, vocabulary, and essential information you need to understand the 30+ leading cryptocurrencies today. In addition, the investment strategies that the smartest investors in the world use are described and how they can be applied to the cryptocurrency market today. 
    In other words, massive opportunities and massive risks exist in investing in cryptocurrencies. Read and tread carefully. Ensure you and yours invest wisely. Remember the only constant in the world is change.
