A Content Partnership with “The Peak” & Lessons We Can Learn From Charlie Munger
Charlie Munger is a billionaire investor, business mogul and ‘Warren Buffett’s right-hand man’. While it would appear he has everything, he didn’t always have it so easy.
He grew up during The Great Depression and saw how his family was dealing with the economic crisis. Then at 29 years old, his marriage crumbled, he lost a child to cancer, and a terrible cataract surgery left him with pain so severe that he removed his left eye.
Perhaps it was what he endured that contributed to his ability to be resilient and sharp in the face of extreme challenge.
Here’s what we can learn from Charlie Munger…
2 Lessons We Can Learn from Charlie Munger
Improve The Content You Consume
Thanks to the internet there is so much information available at our fingertips. The problem is that it’s really easy to get trapped into group-think. If we want different results from the herd then we’re going to have to think differently. To do that, we must read constantly, about different topics, cross-pollinating ideas, testing our theories, and applying them.
“In my whole life, I have known no wise people who didn’t read all the time — none, zero.” Charlie Munger
Keep It Simple.
Sometimes figuring out which cryptocurrency to invest in feels like having 1,000 tabs open on your computer. You’re trying to learn about every coin, protocol or project but the problem is you’re everywhere and nowhere. To build long-term wealth, avoid getting overwhelmed or lured into investing in every asset under the sun. You’ll find your competitive advantage lies in how simple and streamlined your thinking is.
“Take one simple idea, and take it seriously.” Charlie Munger.
At Netcoins, We’re Helping Our Customers Get a Competitive Edge With Content
We believe that in order to invest wisely into crypto, our customers must also understand what’s going on in politics, economics and society. It simply isn’t enough to stay on top of crypto news, exclusively.
That’s why we’re excited to announce our new partnership with The Peak!
The Peak is a breezy, smart, fun – and 100% free – morning newsletter that summarizes the top Canadian and global business stories (Charlie Munger-approved!) in 5 minutes or less. Some topics they cover include the Canadian Elections, the Evergrande crisis sending crypto prices tumbling down, the AUKUS submarine agreement and more.
If reading isn’t your thing, they also have a podcast called “The Peak Daily” that lets you get up-to-speed with a fun and smart breakdown of the three biggest Canadian business stories in less than 10 minutes.
In short, The Peak is the best way to get all the news you need to be a better investor.

Over the next month, you’ll be seeing some cross pollination of content between The Peak and Netcoins via our newsletters, blog and social channels. We’ll be providing our customers with news around the Netcoins product, the crypto industry and relevant Canadian/global business news.
