Let’s look back at the Money and Marketing Seminar for Entrepreneurs hosted by Mavis Amankwah. Thank you to all our guest speakers and delegates that joined Rich Visions for a day of serious business and networking; the turnout on the day was great!
Our March seminar kicked off with a bang as our Money And Marketing regular Dr. Sunny Ahonsi from My Money Management Education addressed Crytocurrency. Considering the price of Bitcoin has depreciated since our February seminar, sceptics were reassured as Dr. Ahonsi showed delegates alternative currencies to invest in:
“Prior to today, I felt like the fad was fading, however, thanks to his [Dr. Ahonsi] tips and suggestions; I feel confident to open an exchange for my business.
“I thought Bitcoin was the be-all-and-end-all, however, currencies such as Ripple, Litecoin and even Neo Shares are on the up.”, said Ryan, a 27-year-old entrepreneur, looking for diversify his company’s portfolio.
