There's lots of noise in the crypto space, and things move fast. I wanted to…
For the past year and a half, I’ve talked about how to build online businesses, how to launch courses, land your first coaching client — basically how to become financially independent and do your own thing without having to answer to a boss.
This was my focus because this was my own path. I’ve been building online businesses since 2016, with varying levels of success.
I still stand by the belief that starting an internet business teaching what you know (through coaching and courses) is one of the best ways to achieve the kind of life you want.
Business skills will always serve you well.
But back in May of this year, I bought my first crypto —
I put $50 into BTC and $50 into ETH.
We’ve all been hearing the crypto hype on and off for the past several years, but it felt to me like things were taken up a notch in 2021 — and I started to pay attention.
It started with mild curiosity.
It can feel like 90% of the people talking about crypto are bullshit artists, scammers, get-rich-quick hacks, and other unsavoury-types.
But as the months wore on, more and more of the smart people I follow online started talking about it, and they were excited.
When a bunch of smart people start saying “Hey, I think you should look at this new thing”, I start getting interested.
So I went down the crypto rabbit hole. Just a little bit at a time.
But the thing is, with rabbit holes, the farther you go in, the more it sucks you in. You just keep going deeper and deeper after ever new thing you learn.
And I’ll admit, as a non-technical person — it was intimidating, especially in the beginning.
A lot of it was over my head.
But as I’ve grown to understand how the blockchain works, why it’s going to change the whole system (financial and otherwise), and what the future might look like with this paradigm-changing technology…
I’ve become a convert.
I see why so many incredibly intelligent people say crypto is the future of money, governance, and the framework the metaverse will be built upon.
And I’ve never been more excited for the future than I am right now.
It started with a $50 investment 6 months ago.
I’m funnelling as much spare cash I have into this, each and every week — whether crypto is up or down.
Mostly BTC and ETH, but little experimental amounts in other altcoins here and there, just for fun.
I want to help build this new reality…
Which is why I’m pivoting to crypto
I’ve been going back and forth with the idea of pivoting to creating crypto content on my Youtube Channel over the past few months.
Since May, I’ve split my time between continuing to create business content and testing the waters with crypto videos every so often.
Growth has been slow with the business stuff, but the crypto videos have done well — despite it being brand new topic for my channel.
There is a hunger for more on crypto. People want to learn, and I want to create!
So what do I have to offer?
The crypto space is confusing, difficult to use (infrastructure isn’t there yet — think of how the internet was in the 90s compared to now, this is where crypto is and it has a long way to go), there’s a lot of noise, there’s SO much BS to sift through (check the comments section of any crypto video on Youtube and you’ll see what I’m talking about…), and people are skeptical and excited at the same time.
I am no expert by any means, but I’m excited to help get people onboard, to drive momentum in this crazy new… Movement? Thing? Direction?
We are going to recreate the world, and I am here for it.
Brie Kirbyson is now a Crypto Channel
I’ve quietly pivoted 100% to crypto & finance content on my channel over the past few weeks. My last non-crypto video was published a month ago.
Moving forward, I’ll be creating beginner-friendly videos on what’s what in crypto, and how you can get started in the space.
If you’re an entrepreneur here for the course creation content, my old videos aren’t going anywhere.
If you’re not interested in learning about crypto, that’s cool. No hard feelings!
Maybe you’re justifiably skeptical. I was skeptical too.
But this change feels monumental to me, so I have one request:
Just research it.
Just look into it.
Just take a single step down the rabbithole, and see what happens. I think you’ll find that there’s more than meets the eye.
There’s a lot of noise in the space, so here’s a list of the resources I personally found useful in understanding crypto, web3, NFTs — and all the rest.
I plan on keeping this list up-to-date and adding to it whenever I find a great article, podcast, video, etc that I found helpful.
