Ep.75 | Why Bitcoin is Bigger than Bling with Justin Rhedrick

The Conversation:  Gaining More Control of Your Money 


In our last episode, we talked about different ways to gain control of your money, from stocks to forex and more. In this episode, we’re going to add another tool to your money freedom toolkit, Bitcoin. 


Whether you love Bitcoin, are confused by it, or hate it, this digital money has changed lives. 


One of those lives is Justin Rhedrick. 


Justin Rhedrick aka “Bitcoin Vegan” was a man who was tired of being trapped. He spent two years in college, only to learn that he would be graduating through the recession. He served his time in prison, only to find minimum-wage level jobs available. He started his own business, but felt trapped by the high amount of work he had to put in just to keep it alive. 


Then he found Bitcoin, and his life changed. 


Justin found something that he could understand, something that would not only build income for him but also for generations to come. 


Tune into to learn how Justin made that transition from someone who felt trapped to someone who is running his own life through the power of Bitcoin.
