Are NFTs a Fad or the future of art?

 

Today on YAP Snacks, Hala takes you on a journey to learn about NFTs, the cryptoart that top entrepreneurs and investors are backing as the next big thing that shouldn’t be dismissed similar to the dot com boom in the late 90s.

 

NFTs are the latest cryptocurrency phenomenon to enter the mainstream – they turn digital works of art and other collectibles into one-of-a-kind, verifiable assets

 

While the concept of NFTs have been around since 2012, they’ve exploded over the past year.  In 2020, the market grew by 229%, reaching $250 million in value. And, in February 2021, more NFTs were traded in 24 hours than in the entirety of 2020.

 

In the crypto space, hype is definitely par for the course. But this feels different mainly because the mainstream hasn’t just taken notice. They have skin in the game— from fashion brands like Nike and Louis Vitton to sports brands  NBA/ NFL, to musicians like Kings of Leon and Grimes. They all are putting their hats in the NFT-ring, creating NFT-based consumer goods and services.

 

So are NFTs the future? Or is the NFT craze just a bubble stemming from increased online activity following the pandemic?

 

Well the good team at YAP have investigated the topic and we are here to give you the facts, so you can better understand what NFTs are, and decide if you want to get involved or just let it be another crypto trend you let pass by and fade away.

Did you know that the Mind and the Brain are two separate things?! 

 

In this episode, we are chatting with Dr. Caroline Leaf, a best-selling author and cognitive neuroscientist. Since the early 1980s, Dr. Caroline has researched the mind-brain connection, the nature of mental health, and the formation of memory. She was one of the first in her field to study how the brain can change (neuroplasticity) with directed mind input.

 

Dr. Leaf is also the best-selling author of Switch on Your Brain, Think Learn Succeed, Think and Eat Yourself Smart, and many more. She teaches at academic, medical and neuroscience conferences, churches, and to various audiences around the world. She is also involved in the global ECHO movement, which trains physicians worldwide on the mind-brain-body connection, mental health and how to avoid physician burnout. 

 

In this episode, we discuss how Dr. Caroline first started working with the brain and the mind, why she chose to focus on the mind, and the unique aspects of it. We’ll also chat about the differences between the brain and the mind, how the mind and soul are connected, the physical impact toxic thoughts have on your brain, and Dr. Caroline’s advice on how it’s possible to heal with your mind instead of medication. This conversation got deep and uncovered so many things I never knew about what our minds are capable of - you definitely want to listen in!

How can you break into the tech industry and land a successful career doing something that you love?

 

Today on the show Hala is joined by industry experts, top recruiters and career coaches to discuss how you can more effectively land those interviews in the tech field, and how you can blow them away during that interview. 

 

The tech industry has been strong over the last several years: IT unemployment continues to shrink, salaries inch higher each year and innovation continues to create exciting career opportunities. In fact, a recent survey found that 86 percent of businesses have trouble finding tech talent and the gap is only getting bigger and job opportunities projected to grow 11% by 2029.

 

In this episode, Hala and friends chat about how using your personal brand can speak volumes when trying to break into the industry, and how getting used to industry language and key terms before you’re actually in the field can help give you the confidence you need.  The panel also covers how to stand out amongst a sea of resumes, ace your interview and sky rocket your career once you have your foot in the door.
