a leading marketplace for cashless business transactions in
North America, has declared it now accepts Bitcoin as a
payment option for its more than 20,000 member businesses.
Bitcoin is the world's largest circulated encrypted digital

payment within the ITEX marketplace and trading community.
In contrast to Bitcoin, ITEX utilizes a centralized system
where it determines the amount of currency in circulation,

merchants. ITEX seeks to provide a platform for peer-to-peer
and centralized virtual currency models to co-exist and
complement each other.

create our e-wallet service, process payments and convert
Bitcoin into U.S. dollars. We invite the millions of Bitcoin
enthusiasts to participate in our trading community," White

Relaxation Essential To Productivity
Although as entrepreneurs we are driven to succeed, we need to
realize that taking time to relax isn't a gift just for
ourselves — it's a necessary and indispensable part of
performing at our peak. And it helps to keep us sane.
If you want to accomplish true success, you must take your
well-being seriously; realizing it's easy to grow accustomed to
an increased level of stress. To avoid getting burned out, don't

of time and whatever form you find appealing. Simply tensing

able to say no to the less important items is a big part of
your overall success, and people will respect your honesty.

relax, slack off, or get more sleep. Success comes from
