1129 Dr. Milan Somborac DDS Founder of Monday Morning Millionaire Program : Dentistry Uncensored with Howard Farran
Milan is the author of Monday Morning Millionaire and the creator of the Monday Morning Millionaire Program. He practiced dentistry for over 50 years and has as much do-it-yourself investing experience. From that, he knew that you can make more money on a Monday morning before breakfast than you ever did in your best week at work. The Monday Morning Millionaire Program is his step-by-step process that will allow you to outperform the market and to become a confident and successful do-it-yourself (DIY) investor. In addition to Milan, his team has three self-made, multimillionaire do-it-yourself investors one of whom is on the advisory committee for a $US3 billion American state county portfolio. He also has a business background. In 1996 Milan, along with his son, B. Eng. & Mgt., MBA, created Tenax Implant Inc. They manufactured and distributed dental implants in Canada, South Korea, and the Caribbean. It took three years, four patents, ISO certification and a million dollars of investors’ money to reach that status. Only three other Canadian dentists have done so. With his staff of six capable assistants, he ran patient implant treatment courses in these countries to teach implant treatment to colleagues. They have launched the implant careers of some 500 dentists. In 2008, they bought out the 10 Tenax shareholders and changed the company from an implant manufacturing operation to a holding company. It now only invests in the stock market. About the same time that he started his career in dentistry, he befriended a lawyer who was an active investor. That sparked his interest in also becoming a DIY investor. He has invested in all sorts of securities and found the best results come from owning a US market index exchange-traded fund in his core and “explore” portfolios and occasionally selling derivatives in the “explore” portfolio. A high net worth friend whose portfolio is managed by others was so impressed with my results that she suggested that he make that system public. Following her suggestion, he launched the Monday Morning Millionaire Program to be able to share his knowledge with a broader audience.

804: Blockchain Enjoys Summer Amidst Crypto Winter
The year-long crypto winter has continued to take a toll on crypto investors’ sentiments and confidence. Take Switzerland for example, in Q4 2018 alone, the market valuation of 50 largest blockchain companies in the country’s “Crypto Valley” plunged more than 50% to US$20 billion. Over the same period, however, the number of Blockchain companies surged by 20%, according to a survey conducted by CC VC. Despite the bear market, the demand for the distributed ledger technology continues to flourish. Amongst the 20% increase in blockchain companies, four of them are classified as ‘unicorns’ — signifying they are already worth billions of dollars. Liechtenstein, an early supporter of the technology implemented legislation to regulate blockchain business models, showing a direction towards adoption. With that said, how are other blockchain firms fairing on a global scale? I invited David Wachsman, CEO of Wachsman on to my daily tech podcast. Wachsman is a high-tech communications agency with specialization in blockchain, AI, IoT, gaming, cybersecurity, and fintech.

David also elaborates on the relationship between crypto market cap and the growth of blockchain technology and what he thinks the blockchain industry should be focusing on in 2019 to encourage mass adoption.
