they're known for their windmill yeah it's beautiful um awesome well welcome um so before we like dive fully into all things crypto i'd love to hear more about what has led you to where you are now you know whether that's some of the trainings that you've gone through um how you came across crypto all of that stuff so in your own words i'd love to hear about your journey to where you are today so my journey is one that i think you know it's funny in my travels in these communities um connecting with different folks there's something that often happens for particularly women i think at like midlife whether that be 40 50 what have you where we kind of can come to these crossroads so that happened for me at 40. um there was a series of life events from like 38 to 40. i call them significant like ruptures in my life my mother died my then husband had a serious cancer experience he's recovered and healthy and that's beautiful but those things together created a lot of stress in our life and we discovered a lot of fissures in our relationship and our marriage and it didn't it didn't survive those things personally i didn't have a lot of the tools that i have now to know how to navigate through a lot of that stuff and i was sort of the classic over-functioning over-performing people-pleasing let me try to do everything perfect martyr control freak which you know leads to burnout and exhaustion and disappointment and then you throw in a bunch of life stuff that's complicated and yeah so anyway at 40 my life kind of blew up um and we had been working in a our business together uh so i found myself end of marriage end of career exhausted burned out pretty much like at the low point of my life hating myself loathing who i saw in the mirror and i made a bold audacious choice to like put my life on hold as i was getting a divorce and not put it back together to say i didn't navigate my mom dying very well i didn't advocate my now ex-husband's cancer very well is kind of shitty this feels like the low point in my life but i want to learn from those previous two situations and i want to navigate this differently with vulnerability with compassion and i need to give myself space to just be and to grieve and so i gave myself three months to go on a sabbatical from my life and i took myself to europe and i just traveled around alone and got to know myself and i cried a lot and i walked a lot and i explored a lot and i came to life and i was like wow that feels like it was just the door opening to something how can i make this more of my life and so i went back to the us i got some of my affairs in order i sold a bunch of my stuff continued the process of dissolving our marriage sorting stuff out got all our final financial stuff sorted and i went back traveling for six more months and um gave myself more time to process and heal and really rediscovered myself came to know who i am in a totally different way um and it opened my eyes too to living differently you know i sold most of my possessions i put the rest in storage i packed a bag and i was traveling for six months living out of just what was in a single bag now it's a big bag but still right my life got a lot simpler and it was like wow so who do i want to be when i'm no longer trying to answer the questions of what do i do for work and who's my family and where do i live like who am i the human and how do i desire to show up in the world became my focus and my life shifted and so um i started following intuition more i started following more i started following my passions more i started following what made me feel alive during that same time frame i took one of layla martin's courses and then i saw the information around her coaching certification program and there was a response a visceral response inside that was like you need to do this so i signed up for it and i i gave myself permission to like live in a really messy way to not be figuring out my career or my home or where i was gonna live and intentionally like keep those answers on hold while i figured me out now the first question people typically ask is how could you possibly do that right so i was fortunate enough to have in the 20 years prior to that worked in the financial technology industry as a consultant and i had a great job and i had invested money in retirement and things and my ex-husband and i he had a construction company and we were great business partners and we developed those businesses and then we started another real estate investment company and so we we did good business together and when we separated i wrote our financial separation agreement because i was sort of the finance person he was used to me doing that kind of stuff i said hey i'll map it out for us and then you can look it over and see what you think and i developed it in a way that he had to buy me like the laws say he had to buy me out of the business and i gave him three years to buy me out and pay me income over those three years and it was a little bit of income but it was enough that i felt secure to give myself time and space to figure out who i wanted to be and our house had a certain value and my retirement assets had a similar value and i said why don't you take the house because it's continuing to grow and appreciate in the market we're in that can be a great retirement for you i'll take my financial retirement assets they're about the same value i knew that i would feel more secure having a bulk of assets um not feel like i was totally untethered he thought that made sense we split that stuff that way and so he had to pay me some additional lump sum payments buying me out of the business and i took that money and was like okay how do i live differently what do i want to do with this money to consider building myself a different life and traveling in different countries and seeing how people live in different places gave me different insights to how i could live not everybody lives the same way as people do in the us not everything costs the same as things do in certain cities in the us and so that also perspective opened up a variety of possibilities to me as i reimagined what my life could look like um so i'm going to pause there that's kind of how i ended up living in greece that is how i ended up sort of like living in a different way that's how i got on the path of life coaching that's how i financially had some cushion to start a new life and i made some choices at that time you know when i started traveling i didn't get a house or have rent or utilities i cut all my expenses except for what i was paying for my traveling and i was lucky enough to keep health insurance through our old business together while i was transitioning so i cut all my expenses to the minimum and only traveled um and for a lot of folks i knew that seemed risky they're like what you're not gonna have a place to call home and i was like well home is gonna be wherever i am for a little while until i figure that out but that gave me financial flexibility to travel and explore without a lot of financial overhead no car payment no insurance no utility bills no rent like when you cut all those expenses out you know i had my phone bill and wherever i was staying when i was traveling right and so that created some different opportunities for me i sold my car i sold some other possessions and i just embarked on let's let's see where i can go with this and i started thinking about things differently and opening to different possibilities so that was kind of how it got started i love it it's almost it's like another version of eat pray love right where it's like a great i love a good story of a woman rediscovering herself and there is this element of sometimes there are those ruptures that happen in life for us to actually redefine rediscover recreate who we are and get to know ourselves again in a way in a deeper way that you know with you doing layla martin's program and like you said getting to travel and experience different cultures where people don't live the way even from state to state in the states but when you go to another country like you are learning a completely different way of living and eating and thinking and um getting to soak in those cultures and i love that you're so much of this speaks to my own journey of i've had very similar like i'm a nomad i am i have been nomadic for the past like almost year and a half now i've done it in the past before and um it sometimes starts with a rupture that causes you to go do the thing but um for anyone that's ever wanted to go live abroad and has always been like secretly living vicariously through other people it's like proof you and i are both proof that like cutting some of the normal things that people think you need to be successful or to have your together or whatever sometimes it's the most liberating thing you can do for yourself is to trust that desire to take you to places maybe that are uncomfortable or that um are making you question everything and but if you know that that's the path for you i cannot like for i think from both of us cannot recommend it enough for rediscovering and rebuilding your sense of self and all the things so thank you for sharing that that's really powerful and um with that how did you i mean the greek islands are like literally one of my favorite places in the world so what led you to greece and deciding to kind of plant yourself in greece for the time being so it's interesting um my ex-husband and i along with two other friends took a two week vacation degree so it was the first time i'd gone to greece uh a month and a half before he and i decided to divorce and it was supposed to be this like 40th birthday trip for my girlfriends and i and a belated honeymoon for he and i when in reality it was that can we fix our relationship thing and the answer was no um but i hadn't done really any world traveling international traveling in many years and so that the trip to greece there was just something that like opened inside of me it was the most difficult and uncomfortable vacation i'd ever been on and simultaneously like a soul opening experience too the first time i was here in greece and there was something about the place that called to me and called to me to return and i had a very intense experience in mykonos in the town of and i was walking through the town solo and there was like something that bubbled up inside of me that was like you need to come back here and so a month and a half later my ex-husband and i split it took me three months to kind of like transition and then that following winter january i took my three-month sabbatical and at the end of my three-month trip i came back to greece and visited i came back to the island of mykonos and visited a tour guide that i had met on our trip and i only spent two days here but there was this sense of like yeah i'm supposed to go back there again like those two days were beautiful it was like there's more for you here so then later that year i traveled for six months in england and scotland i drove all over scotland just me in a car 5 000 kilometers tons of photos like all over the highlands and islands of scotland just traipsing around like a rambling fool excavating and airing out my soul and healing myself like amazing and i found myself in the highlands of scotland uh at the end of october and it started to snow and i was like yeah i think i'm done with this cold weather and i was like where do i want to go and there was something inside that said let's go back to greece and so i booked myself a villa back here in mykonos for the month of november this was the end of 2018 and i came back here and lived for a month and it was an incredible experience i loved it and then i signed up for a layla martin's coaching program and the first trimester was supposed to be super intense like personal exploration and growth i was like okay like where do i want to be while i'm going through that and it started the following january february timeframe i was like we should go rent that we like me talking to myself we should go rent that house in mykonos again so i came back the following february for like a couple months as my gift to myself while i was starting the program and i started to like weave my way into the community and meet people and connect and feel like a part of life here and then i met somebody and fell in love and so we i then i had to leave and we did long distance and then i came back for three months and then i had to leave a gun and we did long distance and then i came back february of 2020 right before we went into quarantine and um we got married in may of 2020 and i've been here ever since and so i fell in love and got married and married a greek man on the island of me oh my god i'm so jealous i'm like sign me up i love all of this and my best friend's gonna freak because she's obsessed with scotland i love all of this jamie it's so fun aspirations for me i'm like send me to greece i'm going to go visit jamie and go find a future husband i love it that's that's so much fun yeah i love it that's so fun so much fun i feel like there's like could be a book and movie out of this as well it's so cool i hear that so much i'm sort of working on them on in the background i love it i love it i love it i love it cool well with that all being said how did you get started into crypto when did that all start commencing for you and then we'll dive into the crypto because this is um i think really new for a lot of people and especially i think for women because it's like techie and money and all the things that um a lot of people maybe are not super familiar with so yeah how did you get into crypto what is crypto and we'll we'll dive in okay so um last year 2020 in the winter like february march um i had a real estate investment deal that wrapped up and so i had some money from this real invest real estate investment deal that i'd been involved in sort of from my former life and i had a bunch of money that kind of came to me as a when that property sold and it came to me right around the time that like everything unfolded with the pandemic and the market crashed and having been a financial investor in the equities and stock market for the past 15 years or so and having learned the benefits of like when you have big market downturns that's the time to buy because you want to buy one it's on sale right so i had this bulk of money and here was this massive sale and i was like oh i've been wanting to get back into financial investing because i'd sort of put it on hold while i was traveling and healing and focusing on myself i was like now's a great time let's capitalize upon this big sale and so i took that money put it in my brokerage account and started investing and um you know it's easy for us i think particularly as women to be like oh i was really lucky right like to downplay our success and our achievements but in truth i had the wisdom of experience from having been an investor for 15 years to know that when timing hits like that it's important to take advantage of it because there's huge gains that you can achieve in those time frames and so i that wisdom and experience from before helped me know that that was a powerful time to invest so i sort of got back into the investing mindset and um i also started thinking about well i have these retirement assets that i had this company managing for me because of when my ex-husband had cancer i had quit managing them myself i was like oh we're changing i quit my corporate job and was working in our small business our risk appetite is different i want some money managers to manage it instead of myself and so i had them sort of managing it they were a very well-known firm it made sense so last year when i was like okay i have the energy in the inside and i'm interested in managing these things myself now maybe i'll have i'll take some of those assets that they're managing and i'll start managing them myself because i was looking at the returns i was getting from them and i was like they're okay but they're not great i think i can do better so i started peeling off some of those assets that they were managing putting them under my direct guidance and managing them myself so whenever i do that i read up on what's going on in the financial markets what are the trends in different sectors and having worked in finance and technology for a number of years those are the areas i tend to read up on because those are the areas where there tends to be a lot of growth and innovation so i started reading and following subscribe to some different research services to get different ideas because i'm a busy woman like everybody and i don't necessarily want to be going and doing all the research there's other people that are really skilled at that i will happily read their research and figure out what resonates for me and invest accordingly right we don't have to do it all to benefit from things right so i started signing up from some different services i'm reading stuff and the way i invest is i like to read so this is like a no-brainer and i like to read these topics so i'm reading about stuff that's interesting to me and then i kind of like tune in and listen to my inner wisdom and knowing and and like where does my intuition say this is a trend that should be paid attention to because i understand how humans are right like so it's like this intersection of knowledge and wisdom and bringing them together and saying that makes sense to me i'm gonna invest a little bit there i'm gonna invest a little bit there so that was what i was doing march to june of 2020 and i was just seeing stuff increase and i was like wow my my proceeds are like it's my money is doubling and tripling okay and i started hearing more and more about crypto and crypto i'd been kind of aware of like as this sort of like super secret off-grid something what have you right like i'm not sure what it is i kind of hear about it it seems super complicated and i'm somebody that's like if it's easy and efficient like maybe i'll explore it but when i had heard about it in the 2014-2015-2016 arena it wasn't as accessible as it is now so i was like that seems like a lot of effort i don't have the inclination for it i didn't then in my life with everything that was going on so i kind of didn't touch it but when i started rereading about it last year in the 2020 time frame and i saw how much it shifted with what we'll call the maturation of it of cryptocurrencies and these assets and i'll kind of define what they are in a second but when i saw what was happening and the maturation that had started to occur where it's we're not like infancy anymore we're like and we're not really toddler we're like grade school it's like okay we've got some growth and some years of established um patterns and behaviors i was like okay this is peaking my interest i have the capacity to read i have this money like it's it's kind of like it's grown these are proceeds if i lost some of it it wouldn't be a huge deal right because it's all like winnings it's all to the good side so i started just peeling a little bit of that money out of um those proceeds and started to put them in to crypto and just explore and dip my toe in and then i signed up for some specific services information services related to crypto and that was really how i started to expand my knowledge and awareness and i'm an experiential learner so i like to get an idea of kind of what's going on understand the landscape and then go play and explore and then refine my approach and so that's really what i started doing last summer um so i really got into the arena at the end of june of 2020 and [Music] have been writing the crypto waves up and down and it is a pretty volatile asset class and it's pretty interesting and entertaining and adapting my investment strategies from the past 15 years to this specific market because it's different and applying them in different ways and kind of tweaking them as i've been experiencing different stuff to work well within this particular asset class very simple for folks that don't know the technical definition of like crypto or a cryptocurrency and it's gonna sound super wordy and nerdy but i'm gonna give you like what okay what does that really mean so a cryptocurrency is the native asset so it's kind of like the asset you would use on a blockchain network so it's a network blockchain is a specific type of technology it's a decentralized ledger system and that that cryptocurrency is the asset used within that specific network and it can be traded it can be used as a medium of exchanged or used to store value so i like to think of this like remember when we were kids and maybe we were playing tea party this is something i used to do and i would get candy and you know like i'd have these little candies and it's like okay tea party here's your little pieces of value and here's mine and maybe we'd be playing cards and trading these um skittles right i was just thinking whatever like the skittles yeah yeah so you can apply that concept to this so like an analogy would be you and i nicole you and i could be having an exchange and interaction through some network of technology that we're utilizing and maybe our interaction token or cryptocurrency is our skittles right it's just a way of exchanging um for goods for value um for trade and so like that's all a cryptocurrency is just think of it as like a digital form of exchange now it's specific to being used on these networks blockchain networks so what is the blockchain um blockchain is a technology that's called a decentralized technology i want you to think of it it's a decentralized ledger think of a spreadsheet so instead of having a spreadsheet stored on your computer the spreadsheet is stored across multiple systems across the world so it's decentralized the information in the spreadsheet instead of just being stored in one location is stored in hundreds of locations and when you update the spreadsheet it's updated in all hundred locations what that means is if something happened to your computer and it was destroyed the other 99 versions would still exist if somebody hacked your version or 10 of the versions 90 additional versions would still exist so it's a distributed ledger technology that is more um capable of thwarting attacks system failure all kinds of things and it also means if say i was the old school owner of the ledger on my computer and i wanted to change all the data because i was what they call a bad actor or somebody up to nefarious activities right like that can't happen so it's also decentralized from a governance standpoint it means that more people have eyes on the information so it's more not democratic in the political sense but democratic in the sense of available from an access perspective to multiple people so it also helps prevent um nefarious intentions and unethical behavior right so so the blockchain technology was developed as a rebellious antidote to the big banking financial system it was developed as a result of the financial crash that occurred in 2007 2008 as an antidote and there's a whole lot more to it related to stores of value and currency and all kinds of other things that i'll cover in my foundational session i'm doing later this week but just know that like so it's a cryptocurrency is a digital store of value stored on this decentralized network there can be lots of different types of decentralized networks lots of different types of stores of value and that's kind of like what the crypto sphere is does that yeah the crypto lingo i love it yeah and i've heard too that um it's really helpful for artists whether it's for music or actual paintings or art where it gives the money back to actually the artist versus it going to all these different hands and um and their rights and their publishing all of the things too i'm i don't know if you can elaborate on that too but that's i've heard that through just my own research that i've done too so what you're referencing is something new that's really come on the scenes recently this past year which are called nfts or non-fungible tokens which basically means a digital representation of some asset it could be art it could be a piece of music it could be a house it could be a car a collector's item so any type of asset an nft is a digital um ownership representation of that and what's powerful about the nfts is that they can be sold in partial shares so you can um the asset can be the value of the asset can be distributed into multiple nfts and so like if there was a classic car for example that you and i and three other people wanted to go into and buy we could issue five nfts for the different values that we each purchased related to that car and we would each have a portion of the ownership of that vehicle so where that becomes powerful for the artist or the owner of the asset is that they have one a potentially broader marketplace that they can sell that asset to two they can sell it through partial shares three the transfer of the asset happens within the digital marketplace and so what you were referencing is that can cut down on the fees of the other hands involved so that more of the proceeds of the sale of the asset go directly to the owner of the asset or the artist depending on what the asset is and the fees that are required to process it are distributed across the owners those maybe those five owners and or because it's a digital network and these networks don't have say the overhead of office spaces and all kinds of other things that the existing big banking financial infrastructure does the fees are also lower so you have distributed fee distribution and lower fees costs in general and so oh and an ease of transfer and then a record an electronic record that again is stored in hundreds of places where everybody can see the transparency into who bought what when was their certificate of authenticity so all it's like the technical innovation is making the sale more efficient more transparent more dynamic and lower cost awesome that's awesome thank you for explaining that and um so how does if someone's thinking of like basically crypto is online currency i i follow a tick talker who's an astrologer i don't know you may have heard her name marin altman but she's she's a pretty famous youtube tiktok astrologer crypto person and she was talking about buying an apartment with crypto so how does this work with as far as like in relationship to actual like direct hard printed cash versus like the online how does that work like if you're using crypto can you like translate it into printed out cash or is it all trading online staying in that space um [Music] so a couple things in the past few years when i was talking about the maturation point of the industry it specifically in the last two years a lot of things have changed where um companies like square paypal visa are creating mechanisms within their existing platforms where you can buy sell trade leverage crypto as you're making purchases so that didn't really exist prior to about prior to 2020 it didn't very limited narrow windows but now it's becoming more widespread this is why right now is a powerful inflection point in the adoption of crypto assets overall because it's the mechanisms for using it in our day-to-day life are starting to become more available so with these big companies who are financial services companies like paypal square square owns the cash app paypal has the venmo app so on those apps visa they're issuing credit cards where you can get your rewards in crypto mastercard is a new deal with a new company to be able to do the same thing now there's all these different ways where you can eat more easily and seamlessly transfer your assets into crypto out of crypto buy things with your crypto whereas prior to last year what you would have been looking at was taking your crypto assets and you can still do this today by the way but prior to last year you would have almost had to do it this way take whatever your crypto assets were sell them for the equivalent cash money that you desired in whatever currency you desired it to be in and then use the cash to purchase what you desire to purchase because the mechanism to purchase directly with the crypto didn't exist in the financial platforms prior to 2020. so you would have had to sell your crypto assets to do the purchase and when that happens it kicks off a tax event so then you'd have to be you would then have a taxation on the growth from when you bought the crypto to the time you sold it um that still happens when you purchase assets directly with your crypto but you might get a more advantageous purchase you're not having to sell as many assets potentially right like having the ease to just sell buy something directly with your crypto is a lot more efficient it's a lot more manageable so there's a lot of benefits that are coming from being able to purchase things directly with your crypto as opposed to having to sell it and turn it into cash in order to make the purchase okay well yeah that's so interesting and um so when somebody wants to start crypto like how much do you need to get started and what are the biggest obstacles to for most people to get started so right now in the crypto space if you're thinking pure like crypto assets or tokens there's over 5 000 different um cryptocurrencies or tokens related to networks available that you could invest in so one of the biggest obstacles is people one knowing what to invest in into feeling comfortable investing because there are also um a lot of quick money scams underway where people set up a network and they create a token and then they hype the token on social media and it's called a pump and dump scheme where they pump up the hype around a token get people to invest which supply and demand drives the price up and then sell their tokens for more money and then like is is there really any value in in that asset because one of the things to remember is just because it's a crypto asset who's defining what the value of the asset is so an understanding of market dynamics of asset valuation is really important and that can be complex to people like how do i even know like what cryptocurrencies what i want to invest in which platforms have value how do i know that how do i understand that so navigating in that space can feel super overwhelming so i would say there's a knowledge and a comfort level that's probably the the true biggest barrier from a like mechanical barrier there's very little barriers you can take ten dollars and buy some crypto through venmo i mean like again the financial tools and mechanisms are enabling it so any of us can buy crypto at any time the question is when do you want to buy right a gun is stuff on sale or is that a peak price point and what do you want to buy and why do you want to buy it are you what are your investment goals is do you just want to own some do you want to be able to say you have it do you want to invest it in or use it on one of the networks that exist do you want to use it to buy something in the metaverse which we haven't even talked about right like so they have uses in other ways so do you do you want the token to be able to utilize it are you investing in it because you think it's going to grow over time what's the time horizon that you're investing for do you understand the underlying specific use of the network or the asset that you're investing in do you understand its growth potential so there's a lot more questions to be asked before entering into investing and it's really how comfortable are you seeking out those answers um comfortable playing in the space like it's it's probably one of the easiest times now to actually get involved but there's also more information and uh cryptocurrencies than ever before so knowing how to use discernment um to guide you into what to invest in is probably the most challenging thing yeah i would agree with that yeah there's definitely a learning curve if you're not used to investing and knowing the terminology i think is a big one for people because it's it's kind of a foreign language for most people unless you've been in financial or investing type or even banking but um yeah absolutely and how would you say that this is um changing how crypto is changing the virtual landscape and the wealth conversation for women in regards to this well i think it's changing the wealth conversation for all humans and and creating greater access to greater wealth and that benefits all humans that may have had um limited or controlled access to wealth in the past so um and it's not just to wealth this is one of the things i'm going to talk about in my um overview session that i'm hosting is the underlying technology that's being used in these on these networks has ramifications beyond the financial services industry one of the big ones that has the the distributed ledger system can be used um as powerful technology in a lot of different ways so like in the us the voting system is a mess right like the mechanics for voting and registering votes and recording and tabulating votes a blockchain network could be utilized to solve the voting dynamics and implement something systematically across all states across the united states to make voting accessible to all humans you know all registered voters or and make it possible for people to register more seamlessly like the technology has uses beyond ways in which it might be currently utilized and and so that there's access to so many things possible not just financially but from uh like systems of access to information to ideas to being represented as humans to financial access to wealth like the technology that's developing and underway has the potential to massively change our world and it and it will the question is who's going to be involved in deciding how the technology is utilized and for what things it's utilized and this is why i'm passionate about having particularly more women and more rep underrepresented populations understand the potential of the technology because like this is the new frontier of how the systems in our world will be developed and i want broader representation of humans involved in the decision making because our world will change and it will change in intense ways this is the newest industrial revolution artificial intelligence blockchain technology fused together with 5g internet speeds all three of those things combined have the potential to massively and will massively change the world as we know it and we need more people in the conversations around how that's going to be utilized it's not just wealth it's the whole fabric and nature of our world and the wealth comes with that right like absolutely yeah so yeah oh that's so important i'm so glad you brought in those aspects too because just like we know it in modern day culture we need more voices from women women of color unrepresented community you know underrepresented communities and the more this is why i'm such a big advocate for education and having conversations like this because the more you know the better you do and the more access you have and because it's still kind of it's like beginning stages the more that we can all get educated now and get in with it and be the pioneers of it and get to have those voices is so important um to again see the changes that we want to create and get to have a say in what that looks like and setting the foundation that's so powerful amazing well with that being said for the women who are interested and ready to start learning about cryptocurrency and want an overview that's way more in depth than what we will be doing here um i'd love for you to share about your upcoming training i know when i saw it i was like i was like immediately signing up for it so um and i know there's a lot of other women too so yeah please tell us about the training you're having later this week and i'll make sure to pop the link for it in the live um after this as well thank you i'm so excited so it's going to be a 90 minute overview educational session kind of walking through like terms foundation all the different things that somebody would need to know to feel like they had a basic building block understanding of this landscape and the implications that are coming as a result of the technology that's in play as well as an exploration of considerations if you want to start investing what that could look like my number one tip on how to leverage what's available in the cryptocurrency sphere from a financial services perspective the number one savings mechanism that's available that many people don't realize you know most banks nowadays if you have a savings account you're barely getting any interest on it and so there's a specific app that i use and correct and recommend and i'm gonna tell people how they could move their savings dollars into that app and be earning eight to ten percent interest instead of the minor amount of interest they get now like just as a way to like dip your toe in and it doesn't even involve purchasing a cryptocurrency it does involve a digital currency but the different risk uh low-risk ways to do that where there's almost minimal zero risk and you could at least be earning uh nine percent on whatever your savings are which is like at a minimum it feels like something that's like super accessible for all humans and is at least helping move the ball forward and maybe the savings you know the interest from that you could start investing in crypto or whatever you want to do so if that feels like a super accessible um starting point that i want to offer to folks tips and guidance on that so it's a 90-minute session it's a zoom session um it will be recorded the reply replay will be available for folks in a private facebook group so folks can sign up even if they can't attend this thursday the 18th at noon eastern they can sign up to receive the information and the replay link and then they'll have access to the replay i will also be hosting a special additional deeper dive session on december 2nd and if they fill out a survey for the overview session they'll get entered in a drawing to win a ticket to the event on the second so the event on the second will be a deeper dive paid session but there's opportunities to win um free access to that and i'll have some other gc offers for folks too about additional educational or consulting guidance in this sphere really just wanting to broaden understanding of what's happening in this sphere get conversations going get women in the conversations see have the opportunity it's so excited um so already for the session on thursday i think there are 180 folks registered women and um non-binary humans only and um several of the folks that are registered are already like exploring crypto and like i'm just so excited for women to attend and see 180 other women that are learning exploring open to wanting to understand the space and like like the power of that ideation altogether and the potential leaders that can make a difference in the world like that just super excites me so i want to have more and more of these types of sessions and forums where people can come together and share in a way that feels fun and accessible and heart-centric that was one of the powerful things that came alive for me why it took me so long to start talking about this is i felt a lot of shame around being relatively successful in this arena and having knowledge because culturally we don't really have female icons or examples of conscious ethical investors you know like the cultural iconography is these sort of like misogynistic greedy uh unethical male figures from movies like where are the powers like the world kind of yeah i'm offering myself as an antithesis to that um i want to create a different vision of what investing profiles can look like and we need more women stepping forward and saying yeah i do this and i'm good at it and i'm ethical and i'm heart led and we're creating a different world and so that's what i'm starting to champion i love it i love it and i'm celebrating you stepping out of the crypto closet and owning your success and celebrating your success because we need as women we need to celebrate each other's success because what that does is allow you to see what is possible for you so rather than getting jealous or competitive or any any of that it's like how can we network how can i learn from her how can we rise together and collaborate and all of that thing in community and heart led and all of that so thank you so much for sharing that i'm gonna drop the link to her training it is this week do not miss it get signed up maybe you'll win one of the like opportunities to get in and um yeah if there's any questions you can pop them in the chat um and we'll we can come back and answer those later and yeah make sure to sign up for this the link will be in there and jamie thank you so much for coming on and sharing your story and your expertise and your wisdom about crypto so thank you oh thank you for having me this was incredible and just i'm so touched at the invitation and thank you for creating this powerful space for people to tell their stories and share and inspire one another and being a leader that leads by example so thank you for that thank you
