Wealth management and creating a DAO
In this week’s episode of Ventures, my guest Aryeh Sheinbein (https://www.instagram.com/aryehthebusinessman) and I discuss a unique approach to financial management for entrepreneurs in light of a rapidly changing tech landscape. While we talk often about venture building and investing on this show, we haven’t yet - until this episode - helped guide entrepreneurs about what to do personally once money is being made. There are a ton of wealth managers out there who bombard entrepreneurs with inbound requests to meet - especially once signs of success start happening - so we talk about how to prepare for that event and plan to navigate the attention. Overall, entrepreneurs today have many new avenues for generating income, and my conversation with Aryeh - who approaches wealth management differently as an entrepreneur/investor himself - is a refreshing perspective on how to approach the topic and mindset.
I’m co-founding a DAO 🚀
Based on the interest from this LinkedIn post, over this past weekend I started a Discord server and invited the top Web2 product manager candidates (plus Web3 experts in our ecosystem) to assemble ourselves to create a training DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization). Our mission, for now, is to create a training process so experienced product managers can rapidly get up to speed to become effective Web 3 PMs. As we scale, hopefully we can extend our curriculum and training to a broader audience.
This training will, of course, require a fair amount of background education on blockchains, DAOs, DeFi, NFTs, metaverse, smart contracts, L1/L2s, etc… to get everyone up to speed. Then we’ll likely do deep-dives into not only Ethereum, but also a ton of other networks (e.g. Cosmos, Solana, Polkadot, etc…) to explain why/how/what can be built today.
If we effectively teach experienced product managers how to navigate the current Web 3 scene, then I’d imagine this will result in a good set of new projects/DAOs/products being built in the near future. This is a SUPER exciting time to be in this space, and I’m thankful for all the Web3 experts who are jumping in to help out.
Let me know if you have any interest in joining the group for a future cohort (this may come faster than anticipated….the energy and momentum in the group is strong).
Have a great rest of your week!
