Wild Product Spotlight
Friends of the Sea! Wild Fish Oil does not disrupt fragile aquatic ecosystems. It is caught in U.S. Waters and processed in U.S. Fisheries. One of the best-tasting fish oils on the market and one of the only fish oils in the world Certified by Friends of the Sea!
Support fishermen that respect the fish that give us their wonderful oil. Wild Fish Oil is a great-tasting, non-fishy burp-less mix of omega-3s in the form of EPA, DHA, and a rarer, not found in typical fish oils, DPA, which has received a lot of attention in the scientific community recently due to research showing it may provide even stronger anti-inflammatory properties than both EPA and DHA. (Many fish oils contain no DPA.) Check out Wild Fish Oil in the Wild Shop.

Article of The week
Okay, WTF is Ethereum.
Ethereum is a cryptocurrency like bitcoin. It has been rising in popularity (and price) lately; most cryptocurrencies have. Cryptos are going to be big players in the future, possibly the only players given enough time.
These things are fun to learn about. They expand your awareness of the world and concepts such as economics, monetary policy, technology, and so on. And if you have no utility or interest in cryptocurrencies, you should still learn about them for curiosity sake.
Be curious and interested = A solid plan for a happy, active life.
Quote of The Week
“Don’t worry about people stealing your design work. Worry about the day they stop.”
—Jeffrey Zeldman, A List Apart Publisher
We live in a world of abundance.
There is enough to go around, and as technology improves, this will become more and more true for every human on Earth.
Yet there is a plethora of scarcity-minded behavior that infects many—and it holds them back.
I remember many times when I've discussed business ideas with friends and they invariably start comparing what other people/companies are doing as if that's a sign that there is no opportunity.
But then I say something like, "That's exactly why there is an opportunity, because someone is there doing it right now."
And while they might agree with me, and while it might seem intuitive to them, I always feel like they aren't really getting it.
Think of it this way: With billions of people having more access and opportunity than any other time in history, you better believe that someone has at least thought of your "billion dollar idea."
The point here is this: you have very little reason to not do something that someone else is doing. After all, you have a fully funded and free public-facing R&D department at your disposal (pay attention to what they are doing and notice what works and what doesn't).
Remember the quote by Picasso, "Good artists copy, great artists steal."
Finally, forget the illusion of the original idea. As Newton said, "If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants."
