ZFellow acceptance & company rebranding
🆕 Personal Updates
It's officially February (mid-February as I write this lol)! 🥇
January felt like a whole year for me, with lots of areas of personal improvement and growth.
In fact, I just got accepted into some of the most prestigious programs in North America with the most notable one being the ZFellows Program. Essentially it's a program where they will give you $10K to skip class or work for 1 week. I'm one of 10 people selected for the latest cohort.
I've also been accepted to the KERNEL Batch 05 (learning about Ethereum with a group of 400+ web3 enthusiasts), Crypto Culture and Society Batch 02 (learning about web3 tokenomics and DAOs), and Safary (learning web3 growth tactics from the best in the industry).
I'm honestly really happy with where I am in life, and so I hope this trajectory continues throughout the year.
Right, let’s get to it - time for this months roundup 🚀
🧩 Web3 Pay-To-Learn
Recently got asked:
What's the best way to get started learning about crypto/web3?
I personally recommend looking into companies that are offering an incentive to learn about new blockchains and protocols. These are my 2 favourites:
Earn crypto through discovering and using the latest crypto applications
Contribute to a DAO and earn crypto. Tweet, make memes, create YouTube tutorials, and more.
Both of these give you the option to LEARN and then EARN by contributing either to DAOs or crypto applications. Once you have the firm understanding of how cryptocurrencies work you can certainly expand beyond these options, but I think it's a great first option.
P.S. I also recommend getting a Coinbase account to manage your crypto portfolio
💠 My Favourite Things This Month
🎬 YouTube Video - The Problems with NFTs by Folding Ideas is a 2-hour video explaining the "damage" of NFTs. Very eye-opening concepts were brought up.
🎧 Audiobook - Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. Always been fascinated by how to increase luck for success and this gives a great insight into how the best in the world (ex: Bill Gates) were able to move life in his favour. Very actionable advice throughout.
🎧 Audiobook - The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor. We are more successful the happier we are - not the other way around. Inner circles are so important to thrive in life.
🎧 Audiobook - The Third Door by Alex Banayan. Been obsessed with "success factors" this past month. This book dives into mentors and how to break into and dominate any industry.
