If You Are Going To San Francisco… My 25 Tips and Tricks on Networking in the City

Every new environment is yet another chance, but also test for your networking skills. After coming to San Francisco, I soon realized that this was not yet just another city, but rather, a magic, layered place that unfolds like an onion — ugly on the outside, but beautiful on the inside. In this article, I list 22 networking lessons learned in the past two months spent in San Francisco. Overall, my personal strategy could be described in short as: everything, everywhere, all at once. An award-winning approach.

Hard Work Makes Me High

I have always worked hard since I was 6 or 7 years old, and I can tell you: life of a person who genuinely enjoys working is much harder than you might think.It always bugs me how people tend to judge you depending on how you spend your time. There are so many stereotypes floating around! In this article, I talk about my love for hard work and why I believe people should be more tolerant toward others when it comes to working patterns.

The Piano

Here is my definition of a talent:  When you are happy, you feel compelled to do it. When you are sad, you feel compelled to do it. That’s what writing is to me. 
It’s like playing piano. 
You can play energico — with energy, enthusiasm, and zest. Or, you can play grave — solemn and contemplative.
 Both beautiful. Today, I will play it grave.

Tell Me What You Think About Gary Vee

Tell Me What You Think of Gary Vee And I Will Tell You Who You Are

Everyone who has anything to do with entrepreneurship or investing, must have seen Gary Vaynerchuk’s face at least once. It is everywhere in the media. People are so polarized on Gary! At some point, I figured that “What do you think of Gary Vee?” Is the chat-up line that tells me almost everything about the mentality of the person I am talking to. For a long time, I was on the fence trying to answer “the Gary Vee question” for myself. In the end, I decided to write this article — for education, and for my own peace of mind.

On Gravity and Gods of the Metaverse: How To Date Online

How do people find their soulmates now in 2022? The vast majority of people you meet today are online. We work online, we socialize online. Even if you are sociable in real life (or, as they like to call it on social media, IRL), how many meetings can you effectively visit every month? A couple of them? How many people can you effectively talk to during every meetup? Five or ten? I decided to write this article because I painfully observe that lots of people — including many of my friends — don’t respect themselves at all when it comes to looking for a partner online. They lower their standards way too much and waste their precious time interacting with all the wrong people. Guys, it doesn’t need to be this way!

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.

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!

HAPE: When Technology, Fashion, and Community Come Together

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.
