Lead with empathy and be kind to yourself or you can’t be kind to others.

Megan M. Brooks-Anderson


My road in life has been direct.
I was born and raised in Texas.
My family didn’t have much, so I put myself through college.
I had my son and chose to raise him as a single mother while working and educating myself.
While in college, I worked my way up from bookkeeper to vice president of operations.
I built my career in accounting and risk management.
I really enjoy working in new innovative industries, so I took a risk, moved to Florida, and joined Riot Blockchain.
I started with Riot Blockchain as a corporate controller, moved up to vice president of finance, and now work as chief operating officer.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for everyone

You can buy your own machine and start mining in your home, but there are other ways to enter the Bitcoin ecostructure if that's not an option for you. You can enter the market through shares and investments. If you're risk adverse, you could focus on buying shares of public mining companies or equipment companies. There are also Bitcoin meetups in most major cities now. Whether you're interested in development, investment, or power, you can join a network of people through these meetups.
