Life & Work with Najah Roberts

Today we’d like to introduce you to Najah Roberts.

Najah, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I have been an entrepreneur for over 25 years in numerous industries. Beginning my career in nonprofits leading the fight in prison reform and transporting children to prisons to visit their incarcerated parents. After many years of helping in the nonprofit sector, I realized that what I was doing was not enough. My favorite saying “If you know better, you do better.” In the mid-2000’s I became a financial advisor and began teaching financial education within my community along with my husband Dimitri. While very successful, something was missing for me. I realized financial advising was helping my clients individually but it was a very small subset of my community. I understood that the financial instruments I was selling were only for a select few. Coincidentally, I was introduced to blockchain and cryptocurrency and immediately realized the potential of the industry and the opportunity for financial freedom. I went all-in on cryptocurrency & blockchain leaving my financial advising business and creating Crypto Blockchain Plug.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It hasn’t been a smooth road, the biggest and most frustrating issue has been getting people to try this new form of money. Most people do not understand what cryptocurrency or blockchain is. They are afraid and missing the opportunity available to them. It has also been challenging dealing with antiquated systems like banks. Many banks realize that crypto would make their business obsolete and they make it very difficult for crypto companies to have accounts with them.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Right now, millions of people are turning to the internet, looking for a new skill to learn. Progress is still happening. Growth is still happening. Community is still happening. For more than a decade, I have been helping people grow their financial portfolios. And in the past two years, I have been honored to witness in person how Crypto Blockchain Plug can serve the community. It is time to go online in an unprecedented way, proving that you don’t have to step outside to step up. Building Silicone Hoods™ is my way of doing that. It is a movement that is about embracing and building technology within our communities. Now’s the time to open our minds to the world of technology that awaits us. Now’s the time to build for our future.

Are there any important lessons you’ve learned that you can share with us?
My biggest lesson learned is that we have everything we need to build for our future at our fingertips. The digital age has allowed for us to learn, understand, and implement revolutionary technologies.
