Tech... why should I care?

There is a reason why these celebrities have shifted their focus here. Because tech is where the money is and where the future is headed and they don't want to be left behind. 


They have already taken the leap, now it's your turn!

Do any of these thoughts resonate with you?

  • Me... tech? I don't want to sit in a dark room and watch zeros and ones scroll across the screen all day by myself.

  • Tech is a new industry. I'm certain I'm going to have to start all over from scratch. I don't have time to waste.

  • Web 3.0, Metaverse, NFTs. What is all of that? That's too deep for me.

  • A transition sounds terrifying. What if I fail?

  • Tech sounds so boring.
