₿HS010: 10X Your Bitcoin Homeschooling


Talk to your kids about the four freedoms: time, money, relationships, and purpose.  Talk to them about their unique abilities.  You can start by teaching kids that there's an alternative to the fiat education and it fits perfectly with Bitcoin.  Tali and Scott explore these and other applications from the “10X Is Easier Than 2X” framework for Bitcoin Homeschoolers.


  • Absorbing material from different viewpoints and different people repeatedly assists with learning
  • “10X Is Easier Than 2X” is useful for Bitcoin homeschoolers despite the fact it wasn’t written intentionally for either audience 
  • Rich Dad Poor Dad is a good example of why teaching kids mental frameworks matters
  • Contrasting abundance versus scarcity mindsets
  • The “pie fallacy” of scarcity in the fiat world
  • Truly free markets increase abundance, the pie get bigger
  • Abundance mindset leads to happiness
  • Talk to your kids about “the four freedoms”: time, money, relationships, and purpose
  • Free up your kids to let them identify and develop their unique abilities
  • Fiat scarcity mindset creates incentives for people to go to college, to pursue types of careers based on how much they pay instead of what their unique abilities are
  • You can start is by teaching the kids that there's an alternative to the fiat education and it fits perfectly with Bitcoin
  • Technology and global competition mean it’s no longer good enough to just be good enough
  • “Gap versus gain” framework is a powerful tool for everyone, not just kids
  • Check out the video (links below) including a clip of Hayek in 1984 talking about a sly roundabout way to take money out of the hand of the government
  • Useful and practical tool related to low time preference is Sullivan’s “focus-buffer-rejuvenate” framework
  • Rest days are critical.  Tali shares personal lessons learned.
  • Teaching your kids how to view time has a huge impact on their future success and happiness
  • The super high time preference of our society is even reflected in how people drive

Tali Lindberg

Hey there, wonderful listeners! I'm Tali, and I'm so excited to welcome you to our podcast today. For two decades, I was knee-deep in the incredible journey of homeschooling my four amazing kids. It was a world of boundless creativity, filled with lesson plans, school projects, sports, and beautiful chaos. But when my children all graduated, a brand-new, unforeseen adventure awaited me - the captivating world of Bitcoin.

It took three years for Scott to bring me into Bitcoin. I hesitated at first, Bitcoin's intricacies seemed daunting, and my plate was already quite full. But he persisted, going so far as to create a fantastic bitcoin-mining board game called HODL UP to demystify it all. Before I knew it, I was down the Bitcoin rabbit hole. Just like my homeschooling journey, I took it one step at a time, learning and evolving as I ventured further.

Now, here we are today, and I couldn't be more thrilled to be part of the vibrant Bitcoin community. In an unexpected twist, my husband Scott and I realized that our homeschooling experiences can be a treasure trove of insights for Bitcoiners who, like us, want to take charge of their children's education. So, in addition to sharing our Bitcoin knowledge with Precoiners with HODL UP and the Orange Hatter podcast, we're here to offer tips and guidance for Bitcoin-homeschoolers. It's going to be an incredible journey, and I can't wait to share it with all of you. Enjoy the ride!
