I agree with some of her ideas and others I disagree with. First communication and the way you say and present yourself is valuable. So don't act like a jerk and a know at all. I believe every situation is different.
Fantastic tips Steve. Thank you. I have been working on some iPhone mail tips (https://youtu.be/lKd8dzLBRgg). I am sure I will be able to incorporate some of your amazing tips into the mobile platform. 😃
All good tips, but I am reluctant to use the "Action Required" subject line (especially with superiors or co-workers). I think it may be perceived poorly, not as a communication method. Perhaps if I wrote "Action Requested"?
Well done Steve. Once again I'm enjoyed great video as it is both entertaining and informative. I was wondering if you had a list of different actions that I could put into the subject line? For example, 'action required', is an understood one that you provided, however, are there others such as ;for your awareness', 'for your amusement' etc? you have been a regular stop for me and my content absorption. Please continue doing the great work.
I really enjoy your videos Steve, but nothing makes me more reluctant to read or act on an email than seeing "action required" in the subject line. Just about the only thing I find more annoying is when people send an email that is only a subject line.
The new lights are great! Previously, the lights reflecting on your glasses were very distracting.
Good content on this one.
Also, I noticed IQTell on your desktop in another of your videos. I tried it, and it really helped me, although it has a lot of problems. Are you using it? I tried Trello and Asana, but they are too big for my needs for a To do app.
The problem is not that Facebook and Google are the only advertising platforms. The problem is that they are considered mainstream media and without these two, the trend of cryptocurrencies gaining legitimacy is delayed. That is right, I said delayed not blocked or prevented.
The World Has Changed.
Five years ago, when bitcoin was unknown to most people, this might have been a fatal move. Today is a different story. I recently traveled to a remote mountain town in the interior of Mexico. Everyone I met had heard about Bitcoin and eyes lit up with excitement when I ask if I could pay for lunch with bitcoin.
Today are dozens of websites dedicated to cryptocurrencies, either holding them, exchanging them or just writing about them. Probably the most effective advertising remains on Google, it is called Google Search and it is free.
If someone wants to learn about owning bitcoin or any other currency, there is a ton of educational information.

Not All Regulation Is Inherently Bad.
If we examine the full spectrum of regulation to this point on a global scale there is one common target most everywhere. That is the practice of exchanges. So far there has been little or not regulation, threatened or enacted, to protect investors from loss of funds due to security breaches.
Capitulation Is A Good Sign.
