Hello, hello, hello. This is Gresh from the I am CEO podcast and I appreciate you listening to this episode. If you've been listening this year, you know that we hit 1600 episodes at the beginning of this year. We're doing something a little bit different where we are repurposing our favorite episodes around certain categories, topics, or as I like to call them, business pillars that we think are going to be extremely impactful for CEOs, entrepreneurs, and business owners, and what I like to call the CB nation architects who are looking to their organizations.
This month we are focused on technology. We're a technology company that does dot, dot, dot. Technology is no longer an afterthought or something that you might do and is actually a core part of your business. If you are a real estate investor, you're using it. If you're a financial firm, if you're a cleaning company, an author, or speaker, you are using technology. If you are in any business, you are using technology, and if you're not, then you're probably going to be disrupted by an organization that is. So this month we are going to look into repurposing episodes that are around technology, whether that be firms or organizations that are actually using and investing in technology as a core part of their products and services or potentially those individuals that are using and leveraging CEO hacks and CEO nuggets that center around technology and sharing ways that we can leverage it as well. Remember that you are a technology company that does dot, dot dot. Sit back and enjoy this special episode of the I am CEO podcast.
This was an awesome chat with Ian Belina and he is an influential blockchain and cryptocurrency investor, advisor, and evangelist. He's a former analytics evangelist and is now investing in cryptocurrency token sales. And I thought the awesome thing about Ian is how he found that specific niche or something to focus on and he's just went out running with it. Something that all entrepreneurs and business owners can learn from.
For Ian, his cryptocurrency, for us, might be a multitude of another thing. But I really appreciated the fact that he's had a lot of side ventures, which in businesses which show his work ethic, and he seems to be able to find and see opportunities everywhere from Airbnb sales to a multitude of other things that he's doing.
So what I want you to do is just sit back and enjoy this CEO chat with Ian Balina. All right Ian, are you still there with me?
