Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods   This insight was inspired by a quote from English writer, book reviewer, biographer, and travel author, Evelyn Waugh.   "When we argue for our limitations, we get to keep them."    –Evelyn Waugh    The great British author had a distinct way with words, and that way is on full display here in the above quote.

Up next on way of the Renaissance Man, investor Kevin O’Leary enters the Renaissance Man shark tank….

Kevin O’Leary, also known by his nickname, “Mr. Wonderful,” is one of the stars of the CNBC show “Shark Tank,” a favorite TV program of this entrepreneurial Renaissance Man. In this episode, I turn the tables on Mr. Wonderful as he enters the Renaissance Man shark tank to talk about his new company, cryptocurrency trading platform WonderFi. The interview took place on the cusp of an interesting time for cryptocurrency, as the big June 2022 swoon in the price of Bitcoin has rattled investors, along with many companies in the industry. According to O’Leary, what Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies really need to flourish is, ironically, some industry regulation, and as he puts it, “that’s when the real money is going to come into it.” Along with WonderFi CEO Ben Samaroo, O’Leary explains that despite the hype of cryptocurrencies, the big money players such as pension funds and sovereign wealth funds have yet to embrace the asset class. Once this happens, which will take a regulated, compliant and transparent platform such as that provided by WonderFi, the big gains in cryptocurrencies will really begin. I very much enjoyed my discussion with Mr. Wonderful and his partner Ben Samaroo, and it couldn’t come at a more interesting time for the cryptocurrency industry. And now, my interview with Kevin O’Leary and Ben Samaroo…
