A NOTE FROM RACHaEL: 

"I have spent my career trying to wear a million hats and not
always being successful because there was never a specific goal
in mind. I kind of just went along trying new things and keeping
an open mind, knowing that eventually I would find the right
thing.

Since I was a kid I had been taught by both of my parents to
become an expert in something and get in early. My father
started in IVF in the late '80s early '90s back when it was still
seen as a bit fringe and controversial. I had seen him be
successful and be an outlier in the medical field- partner of his
own practice at 32, multi millionaire because he was a specialist
in a new and rapidly growing field.

I had always figured I would do something similar - definitely
not medical school but something would show up for me at the
right time for me to enter and fully immerse myself in. I tried
several areas but the cultures were always just not the right fit.
But I knew that eventually I would finally find some place that
felt right and that I cared about protecting, and wanted to bring
others in. Which brings us here.

If you are new to web3 as a concept- welcome. It's always
exciting to have more people here. This is your starter guide to
leaving the toxic constructs of web2 and getting to build
something so much larger than whatever you are currently
doing."

PART 3: web2 to web3 Jobs

 

Rachael will present possible roles that take skills
that you currently have in your web2 career that you can
use to pivot into web3 and make a more profitable and
sane lifestyle for yourself. My guide includes work
schedule, and pay structure guidelines because there
currently is not a lot to work off of but this is what I've
found that is realistic. If we make this the go-to then we
can set these types of salary expectations for ourselves
and the industry as a whole. These are mostly non-coding,
non-technical roles and if there is any it is very light.

Program Measurements:

- YOUR WEB3 "RESUME"

- DESIGN A DAO: ROLES, TOKENOMICS, INNOVATION

- USING THE BLOCKCHAIN: SMART CONTRACTS, MINING, TRADING
