It’s been a month since I issued my last newsletter. I’m going to tell you why, and I’ll also tell you why I’m going to stop issuing more newsletters.
The primary reason I started Moolah was to get a job in crypto
. I’m excited to announce that I’ve been able to cross that off my list: I’ve joined a small (but rapidly growing) crypto mining startup that is still in stealth-mode as we seek to raise additional funding for our next Series round.
Moolah was fun while it lasted (which—let’s be honest—was very short), but I’m thankful to everybody that subscribed and even more appreciative of those that took the time to read it.
Now that I’ve penetrated the industry, my heart’s just not in it anymore to continue a newsletter. Maybe I’ll come back to it one day after I’ve gotten settled into my new job. Perhaps it’ll even be focused on crypto mining (shout out to Compass for having an already awesome newsletter
on this topic, by the way).
For now, I’ve got my sights set on two things:
- continuing to write longer-form essays on my blog
- getting back into learning programming and computer science
For anyone that wants to get a job in crypto, there’s never a better time than now. Start networking, produce things you can call your own, and be intentional about the role you’re seeking. Think hard about where you see crypto in 2-5 years. There will be winners and losers. Position yourself to join the winners. Obviously, we’ll never know for sure until the future becomes the present, but the least you can do is develop a thesis and have some conviction behind it. That way you can finally start to act, and refine your thesis as you go along. Career planning is kind of like investing in that sense. We’re all investors of our own careers. I hope your investment pays off.
