In today's digital age, the world of technology and innovation is constantly evolving, and with the emergence of Web 3.0, the possibilities are endless. As the internet becomes more decentralized and open, it offers a new frontier for women to establish themselves as leaders in the industry.

But fear not, with the right mindset, skills, and support, getting into Web 3.0 and succeeding as a woman is not only possible but can be immensely rewarding.

I love how Emily breaks things down for anyone to understand. Easy to listen to and very informative. I would very much recommend this to anyone starting out on their Web3 journey.
Emily’s pod is a great listen for anybody navigating the web3 space - or even any female entrepreneur who wants real insight and perspective about the workplace. Emily has a lot of knowledge to share and her style makes it feel like you’re getting the inside scoop and advice from a friend. It’s been a big support to me so far :-) thanks for sharing, Emily!!
