Hola G&Gs, Welcome to my podcast, I’m Trekk. In 2018, I left the traditional work force and crossed the #crypto fiat line. Since then I’ve been on the roller coaster being self-employed. In the podcast, I share my trek on the ups and downs to make a living in crypto space and growing #gigeconomy. I share these stories while talking to various people in the growing blockchain industry. My style is conversational like #JoeRogan meets #Tavis Smiley meets #Godfry. One segment is called Everyday People and the other is called Conversations With. I hope you enjoy. Reach out if you want to share.
