Working in Tech, Building Wealth Through Crypto, NFTs & Web3 and The Future of the Creator Economy with Grace MacJones

Curious about investing in emerging technologies such as crypto and NFTs but don’t know where to start? You’ve come to the right episode! While traditional forms of wealth-building such as the stock market and real estate are still relevant, tech is becoming an increasingly important space for wealth-building, and in this episode we’re sharing how to get started.

Our guest today is Grace MacJones. Grace is a Nigerian-American technologist, podcaster, and Azure Cloud Engineer at Microsoft. She is a STEM advocate for underrepresented groups and is passionate about democratizing technology through mentoring, speaking at tech events, and volunteering with tech organizations such as Black Girls Code, Women Who Code, and DigiGirlz.

She’s also the host of the Tech Unlocked podcast which aims to demystify and diversify the tech industry by giving people of color the keys they need to unlock their successful tech careers. In addition to all of that, she’s the founder of Women of Color in Emerging Tech (WOCIET) which is a community helping WoC onboard into web3 and beyond.

In this episode, Grace and I discuss the opportunities available for building wealth in tech. She demystifies working in tech, and helps us understand emerging technologies to invest in including cryptocurrency and NFTs.
