In this episode of From the Blockchain, Ashley (Bored Becky) is joined by guests VJ and Safa – a couple of NFT and Web3 thought leaders who have been friends since the third grade. After college, VJ and Safa took different directions in their careers. VJ went into project management and was working at different software companies, while Safa went into marketing and started his own agency. They would text each other different ideas and early on realized how special the Web3 space could be. After VJ bought his first Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT, the friends got creative. What began as a gut instinct and playful experiment with IP, the journey of Jenkins The Valet and Tally Labs highlights how having your finger on the pulse in a new arena with the right entrepreneurial vision and work ethic can lead to a full-time, innovative, and scaled business.
