Meet Wendy O

Today we’d like to introduce you to Wendy O.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I became interested in cryptocurrency & blockchain technology in late 2017. I was in a transitional time of my life, I had a one-year-old and was in the process of quitting my job in healthcare that I had for seven years—I was searching and praying for a change.

I remember calling my husband and telling him I was going to take some money from savings and invest in Bitcoin. After buying this magic internet money, I began researching and soon found that blockchain technology would not only revolutionize & improve the quality of life but that it would also provide financial reformation for people globally. The next week my investment tanked 28%, which had me more intrigued.

The volatility was exciting, and I began to invest more and start to trade. Keep in mind, I had no idea what I was doing. I would buy alts and profit. However, I didn’t realize we were in the bull run, and my luck would soon run out. Bitcoin hit 20K, and I held on to all my investment positions and soon was left REKT. From there, I figured I would teach myself how to trade and understand why I didn’t see the big drop coming. I did, I bought two used technical analysis books on eBay and practiced daily.

Once I felt confident enough, I began posting my content on Twitter and IG, and people liked it. My account and online presence grew, from there I started hosting free crypto meetups in Los Angles, and they grew as well. From here, I started a YouTube channel to live stream my meetups and crypto companies began to take notice. I began being asked to do promotional interviews and project reviews. With the income from trading and marketing, I was able to travel across the country to conferences and able to work from home while in school and taking care of my daughter.

Currently, I trade part time due to my schedule and work doing marketing, consulting and media for various crypto projects in the space and focus on transparency. I’ve done media and promotion (front and back end) with over 30 companies in crypto. Currently, I’m focused on hosting my Daily Crypto with Wendy O show on YouTube (which airs three-fourX week), marketing advisor for The Tour De Crypto Charity, Advisor for Rapids, Marketing and Community Growth for Monetary Unit, and hosting meetups and traveling.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Oh gosh, this is a fun topic. So, the crypto culture is a mesh of multiple cultures, and the trolls are rampant. I have had my fair share of online trolls spreading untrue rumors and of course threats. But it comes with the territory. I know who I am and what I’m doing, this is only the beginning for me.

We’d love to hear more about what you do.
Marketing in crypto is very tricky. Because the majority of crypto and blockchain projects tokens are classified as securities the laws can get complicated and nature, amount and scope must be disclosed for all individuals accepting payment for the promotion of any digital asset (make sure you verify with a legal expert, because I am not one!).

In my work, I focus on providing transparent solutions for companies whether it be media, guidance or referring them to other professionals within my network. Because the industry is so new, it’s like the wild west, and there is a lack of regulations and standards.

Most companies have good intention but are poor at executing or reach their audience, and that’s where I come in.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
As far as the future goes, I’m here growing and learning with the rest of the community. I plan to focus on growing my reach, network and do more public speaking. My main goal is really to involve other women and get them excited about crypto and blockchain.
