Good morning friends!
Welcome to Building & Growing, a weekly newsletter for people curious about the future of work, web3, and the creator economy, you can consider subscribing here:
Why I started Building & Growing
Building our personal brand in the world of web3 can be a daunting task, but with the right approach, it's totally doable. Building my personal brand is one of the reasons why I started Building & Growing.
If you want to start building your personal brand, start figuring out what unique skills you possessed, your passions, and topics that interests you. Once you have that, you can start creating content around it. This could be in the form of blog posts, videos, social media updates, or even a newsletter like mine.
To maximize the impact of your content, it's essential to consistently deliver valuable information to your audience. Equally important is the strategic promotion of your content to those who share an interest in the topics you're writing about.
Another way to build your personal brand is by collaborating with other creators in the ecosystem. This could be by guest-posting on their blogs and social media channels, or by co-creating content together. By doing this, you not only expand your reach, but also position yourself as a thought leader in the space.
So, there you have it - some actionable tips to help you build your personal brand in web3. Remember, it's a marathon, not a sprint, so keep at it and don't give up.
And if you have any questions or want to share your own experiences, feel free to reach out to me. I have created a form linked here to get to know you a little better, share your thoughts through Tally.
I read EVERY response!
Thread of the week
Here’s something interesting I saw on Twitter today:

It’s just the same stuff said 100 different ways:
"Build a budget"
“Spend less than you make"

As someone who covers topics like career building, I know that personal finance is an important aspect of our lives that we need to pay attention to.
When it comes to our careers, finances play a huge role in our ability to achieve our goals. For example, if we want to pursue a career as a freelancer or solo-entrepreneur.

We need to be able to manage our finances effectively to ensure that we can sustain ourselves during the early stages of our business. And if we're planning to work remotely or build a career in the creator economy, we need to be able to manage our finances in a way that allows us to live the lifestyle we want, while also planning for the future.
That's why I think WOLF_Financial’s thread on 10 myths on personal finance is so important.
It provides some valuable insights into how we can manage our finances effectively, without falling for some of the common misconceptions that we often come across online. Whether you're just starting out in your career, or you’ve have been working for a period of time, there's always something new to learn when it comes to personal finance.
So, my question for you is this: What financial advice have you found most helpful in your career so far? And how have you applied that advice to your own life? Share your thoughts in the comments section, or just reply back to this issue!

Article of the week - How to Use Notion to Create Your Personal Marketing Playbook
As a content marketer, I understand the importance of staying organised and keeping track of what works and what doesn’t. One tool that has been invaluable to me is my scrapbook. I call it my playbook because it’s where I keep all my marketing strategies, experiments, and ideas.
Just like a playbook in sports, a scrapbook is a collection of your best plays. You know what works and what doesn’t, so you keep track of it. You learn from the past, so you can optimise for the future. In the article below, I will explain how you can build your own playbook.

I am in Bangkok for 2 weeks!
Whenever I need a break, I visit thailand for 2 weeks or longer to meet new founders, and attend exciting events in the city. Do you do this too? I am genuinely curious if anyone else does this.
If you are looking to travel in the next few weeks, you should read this thread that I published when I was in the airport waiting for my flight to Bangkok:
Taking a break from my usual content
Today I want to talk about E-sim for remote workers
As someone who travels for both work and leisure, I hate buying a new sim card every time I visit a new country.
