Get Zero to DeFi By Cathryn Lavery
Curious about DeFi but not sure where to start?
Zero to DeFi is a crash course in Decentralized Finance that teaches you everything you need to know about earning passive income on your crypto…
Welcome to my crash course in Decentralized Finance that will show you everything you need to know about earning passive income from your crypto.
It’s designed for people who want to learn about DeFi in an easy-to-understand way. I’ll demystify the jargon so you gain foundational knowledge, master the essential skills and level up your skills and start making crypto work for you.
What’s happening in the crypto space right now is what I feel like the birth of the internet must have been like in the 90’s. I’m confident that learning and investing in the space is like investing in early Apple or being next to Bill Gates as he created Microsoft. This space and the movement to web 3.0 will create generational wealth for people unlike anything we’ve seen before.
It’s why I’ve become so heavily invested into it, and want to show others how to do it.
Getting setup and comfortable with DeFi can be time-consuming, intimidating and costly (especially if you don’t know what you’re doing.) 🥵 The crypto world is filled with scams, pump-and-dump shills, and contradictory information.
That’s why I created Zero to DeFi, it’s everything I wish someone had taught me when I was first getting into the space.

Comprehensive video lessons
Each lessons breaks down a key strategy or area of DeFi and runs from 3-10 minutes in length. The videos are predominantly voice-over screen recordings walking through specific tactics and how-tos.
The course is broken down into 3 sections from laying some foundational knowledge, to the essentials and then advanced tactics.
Specific walkthroughs for taking action
Watching the videos isn’t enough to really “get it”. So each lesson includes specific action items & links so you can jump right in and try it yourself. That’s the quickest way to fully understand it.
Each section also has a pop quiz at the end so I can test that you’re getting what we’re throwing down here.

Hey, I’m Cathryn
I’ve held crypto since 2015 but my initation into DeFi was buying $YFI at under $1,200 in July 2020 (hit ATH of $90k in May 2021). Since DeFi summer 2020 I’ve been drinking from a fire hose and have gone fully down the rabbit hole. I learned a ton, made a bunch of money — and also made many mistakes 😅 (that I want to help you avoid.)
When I’m not doing DeFi I’m running BestSelf Co & live in Austin, TX.
What students are saying…
Zero to Defi was a godsend! Before I went through the course, I only had some Bitcoin in Coinbase and no clue how to navigate this Defi world – much less make any money in it.
Cathryn gives you practical advice to actually get started, but also gives you the context to understand how different platforms work, how to evaluate risk, what to look out for, and all this insider knowledge you only get from first-hand experience in such a fast-changing space. This isn’t stuff you can just Google. Now I actually understand what types of assets I can buy, how to allocate them, what to look out for, and how to find new opportunities.
I’m actually seeing returns from different investments and I’m learning a ton. It’s so empowering to be able to take ownership over your money with DeFi, and I couldn’t have done it this quickly without this course. If you’ve been thinking about doing more than just buying bitcoin and ethereum but the space seems overwhelming, this is the course to take.

Cathryn has done a fantastic job at helping to skip the normal mistakes people make when getting into DeFi. I had no idea where to start with DeFi, and now I feel comfortable investing in a bunch of different projects. It’s worth the money to have someone show you the ropes before diving in.
After years of thinking that i “knew crypto” it only took a couple of weeks in this course to see what I was missing. Cathryn makes DeFi and the red pill of crypto easy to swallow.
I had built up a little basket of crypto, and my strategy was to hold on for dear life and hope things kept going up. Now, because of what’ve I learned from Zero to Defi, I ride the crypto roller coaster and cash flow as the market goes up or down.
