Content Creator Against The World: On Creativity, Eternal Struggle, and The Painful Process of Becoming a Leader

I recently had a few conversations with friends who couldn’t understand some of my investment decisions. They thought of me as a degen who either has way too much free time, or completely lost her marbles. Well, they might be right… But nevertheless, I decided to invest some time in thinking about my current personal investment strategy more in detail, and putting down my thoughts on paper. It is a rather unorthodox approach, so who knows — perhaps this read is also useful to you, whoever you are.

Or, they don’t even grasp their own feelings, until someone pokes them and wakes them up. So, I decided to write this article anyway.
Natalia In The Land of NFTs. My Personal Journey and What I Learned So Far

Natalia In The Land of NFTs. My Personal Journey and What I Learned So Far

I actually first learned about NFTs in December of 2017, when the Crypto Kitties came about and famously congested the Ethereum network right off the bat. I must admit that I ignored the topic back then. I guess I didn’t spot the potential, quite like the majority. But well, now that the field progressed and developed, I had all the reasons to take a closer look at it. And, in November 2021, I finally found courage to step into this jungle. Here is what I learned so far!

Good Money, Bad Money. How Many Types of Money Do We Have? Financial Education By My Dad

How many types of money do we have in the world? It is not a discussion about the right and the wrong currencies! It is all about value. I just had a conversation with my Dad, a professional chess player, about what money is and what it is not. His attitude is so much different than mine!

Last year, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) made headlines and came to the spotlight when the prices of CryptoPunks by Larva Labs, a pixelated collection of digital art referring to the pop-cultural tradition of Cyberpunk, skyrocketed in prices. Now, the times when NFTs nostalgia alone was enough to carry the project, are long gone. The space evolved, developed, and has become highly competitive.

How Setting a Company Has Changed My Life, Personal Development Wise

There are moments when some event happens to you, and as little as it is, it suddenly makes you realize that your life has completely changed. Just like it was this Tuesday, on my way back to the Netherlands. And it came to my mind that the moment I set a company, was the very moment I won my life.
