Jesse Lund, VP Blockchain and Digital Currencies at IBM, says: “Good things take time friends. This is about disrupting (reforming) financial services by the people, for the people…And bank charters aren’t as easy to get these days! Give them time; focus on the current buying opportunity, like most of the banks are quietly doing ;-)” Lund leads Blockchain and Digital Currency market development for IBM. Within his role, Jesse is responsible for accelerating the commercialization of Blockchain solutions to transform the landscape of banking and global commerce. His team leads global partnerships, representing IBM in industry consortiums and guiding IBM’s strategic investment priorities for Blockchain solutions and cryptocurrency initiatives.
He is a financial services veteran with two decades of industry experience. He joined IBM from Wells Fargo, where held a wide range of executive responsibilities within Community Banking, Consumer Products, Commercial Banking, Payments, Wealth Management, Risk Management, Information Technology, and Research & Development. “SIMPLY STATED, BLOCKCHAIN ALLOWS FOR THE GLOBALIZATION OF PEER-TO-PEER RELATIONSHIPS IN REAL TIME, WHICH IS TO SAY, IT REMOVES INTERMEDIARIES. IN DEVELOPING REGIONS INTERMEDIARIES CAN BE BAD ACTORS, CORRUPT GOVERNMENTS. TO THAT END, WHETHER ITS FINANCIAL INCLUSION (BRINGING CAPITAL AND FINANCIAL SERVICES DIRECTLY TO EMERGING ECONOMIES IN REMOTE VILLAGES) OR ENABLEMENT FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT / FAIR DISTRIBUTION OF RESOURCES, BLOCKCHAIN OFFERS A LOT TO COMBAT THE INEFFICIENCIES OF INTERMEDIARIES AND REDUCE OR ELIMINATE CORRUPTION THROUGH BETTER TRANSPARENCY.”
Too many people hum and haw over whether they are capable of greatness or not. They believe they can succeed one minute, and then are in complete denial the next!
Please listen to me carefully You will not achieve greatness or success of any magnitude by continually second guessing yourself.
You need to believe you can succeed, make it your responsibility, and follow through with your actions! If you don't believe in yourself, then how can you possibly expect others to???
Morale of the story You need to believe you can succeed before you actually can. Don't second guess yourself, stick to your plan, and crush your goals 😎👊🏼
What would you do if you won 1 million dollars? 💵
Me myself and I would first invest into my business (e-com store and Instagram) and invest rest of it into real estate and stock market. Then I would use the passive income from the real estate and stock market investment to live from and continue working on my own businesses while traveling 👊
