Freedom instead of hamster wheel - with Janine Griesser

Janine Griesser felt almost locked in as a pharmacist and she didn't want to do the same thing every day anymore. Then she discovered Bitcoin, founded and became an entrepreneur. Now Janine and Niko are starting a cooperation.

This weekly podcast about Bitcoin is the initiative of the Viennese financial journalist Niko Jilch. The goal: to strengthen and network the German-speaking Bitcoin community - and to bring the Bitcoin phenomenon closer to as broad a mass as possible.

We accompany this project as one of the main sponsors in this blog and also make all podcast episodes available here as a video.

What Bitcoin brings. Episode 29 from 06.09.2022

As a pharmacist, Janine Griesser could lead a comfortable life. Secure job, good pay, high reputation. But what's the point of earning money if you don't even know how to use and invest it wisely? This was an impetus for Janine to rethink and after a few years in the pharmacy she had other plans: "I felt like I was in a hamster wheel, I wanted to break out. Bitcoin gave me the freedom to do that."

The 32-year-old founded a new online store for Bitcoin merchandise a few months ago:
Bitcoin is now her main job - and the store is doing well, as she tells us in the latest episode of "What Bitcoin Brings."

As of today, Janine's online store offers the new "Niko Collection" with hoodies, t-shirts, caps and even mugs to "What Bitcoin brings" and Niko's English newsletter "Fix the money."
Janine will also be at the BTC22 in Innsbruck including merch and with the code "Niko05" there is a 5% discount on her whole assortment - including the items from the Niko Collection of course.

Niko Jilch is a financial journalist, speaker and moderator. He has been dealing with our monetary and financial system, inflation, central banks, gold and of course Bitcoin for more than ten years. His ongoing column "Young Money" is published at the digital business medium "Brutkasten".
