"It's natural to be confused by new technology, such as cryptocurrency and social media for example, but by avoiding them you could be missing out on some fantastic opportunities to improve your own life or business and connect with incredible people who are already in the know.
Take things slow, start with the basics, and work your way up from there. You may not be able to teach an old dog new tricks but you're no dog. You've got this."
