    How Web3 and NFTs Can Grow Your Coaching Business and Build Loyal Fans – with April Beach and Brain Fanzo (Episode 279)

    How Web3 and NFTs Can Grow Your Coaching Business and Build Loyal Fans - with April Beach and Brain Fanzo


    This episode is for coaches, consultants, authors, speakers and niche service providers who want to learn about how you can utilize Web 3.0 in your business, to grow your following and to create loyal fans who love and support you. 
    By now you’ve heard of Web 3.0, NFTs, and blockchain, but you’re still unsure of how to use, create or overall tap-into these technologies for your coaching, consulting, writing, speaking or creating business. On this week’s show my friend Brian Fanzo returns to help you understand NFTs and how these digital currencies can further your business and movement. 
    In the past, we’ve spoken of using NFTs as a currency for clients who hold your coin to gain exclusive access to content, trips, and access to you! In today’s podcast, we start there but take our conversation further as Brian guides our thinking to a much broader and more important (in my opinion) consideration. We dive into how your long-time super fans can truly be part of the change and movement you’re creating, by holding your NFT and thereby investing in the future of your business. These concepts are new to most, but in this show we start with the basics and end with the ideals of how you can get started in Web 3.0 for your coaching, consulting, or creator economy business too. Brian also walks us through his journey creating the $ADHD Coin and the realities of his learning process that lead to even greater consideration for the Coins potential than what he originally expected. 


    At the end of this episode, you will:

      1. Have 100 ideas for creating your own NFT
      2. Know where to start in Web 3.0 to get your feet wet
      3. Learn about how NFTs enable your movement, expand your reach, and get the people going…

Now, today’s episode is really, really cool. We’re talking with a friend of mine, Brian Fanzo. He’s been on this show before.

    [00:01:46] April: All right. But we’re bringing Brian back, especially around these episodes that we’re diving in with chat, G P T and AI, because I wanted to talk about NFTs in web three for your coaching business. [00:02:00] So in this show, we dive into how you can actually. Build super fans by using NFTs. We know Web three, we’ve talked about this before and I am sure that you’ve heard about this before.

    [00:02:12] April: We’ve spoken about it in the past, but in this show, Brian actually goes into the use of NFTs to grow your consulting business to. Build superfans in a community and we talk about how to engineer offers or engineer a community of followers. If you have a podcast as an example, where you can actually create superfans and give them extra access by creating a custom N F T.

    [00:02:40] April: So at the end of this episode, you’re gonna have a hundred ideas. Probably way too many. I know we’re entrepreneurs. We never have a shortage of ideas, do we? Uh, you’re gonna have a hundred ideas for creating your own N F T. You’re gonna know where to start with Web 3.0 to get your feet wet. It’s really web three.

    [00:02:58] April: not Web 3.0, web three, [00:03:00] to get your feet wet. Clearly, I need to be getting my feet wet a little bit more, and you are gonna know how NFTs enable your movement, your message, your people to actually join you in your mission to grow and scale your coaching business more. So all of this is coming up here with my friend Brian Fanzo on the show, and I’m so excited for you to dive in with.

    [00:03:23] April: and all the show notes and everything that we talked about can be found again by visiting sweet life Click on the podcast, and this is episode number 279. All right, let’s do. All right, you guys. Well, my friend Brian is back on the show again. I think the last time he was here was about, oh gosh, like four or five years ago.

    [00:03:41] April: And Brian is, is really, truly always the tip of the sword when it comes to, um, the future of work in a way that. Actually matters. And so I’m super excited to have him back on the show this week as we dive into the next gen of the podcast, talking all about NFTs and, and what [00:04:00] they mean for us as creators.

    [00:04:02] April: And so first of all, I know you’re super busy and your girls are growing up and, and life is spinning. So thank you so much for hanging out with me again for a little bit here on this show. Let’s dive right in today and talk about. For those listeners that still don’t know how to wrap their head around it, actually, what is an N F T and why should they care about this in their business?

    [00:04:24] Brain: Excited to be back. Uh, you know, it was great to hang out again. Um, I’ll say, you know, like, you know, a year and a half ago I had no care or interest in NFTs or cryptocurrency. It felt very Ponzi scheme ish. It felt very like Crypto bros. So I just put that out there as like, if it’s foreign or you’re kind of polarized by it.

    [00:04:43] Brain: I understand I was in that same boat, uh, not too long ago. But for me, one of the things that I’ve always looked at was, How do we, how can we, you know, really grow a community where there is a shared ownership between us as either creators, entrepreneurs, authors, [00:05:00] speakers, with those that are our audience, right?

    [00:05:02] Brain: The, that whole a thousand True Fan, uh, essay by, you know, Kevin Cruz, I think that’s like one that we’ve all referenced, but in a weird space digitally. We didn’t really have a way other than like maybe we were monetizing, giving them early access to something. And so NFTs to. Of course it stands for non fungible token, but in, in the bigger sense of this, it allows us to have digital ownership in, in, in things that, that are, we traditionally wouldn’t have.

    [00:05:30] Brain: And, and I, most people are like, well, what does that even mean? Because. We haven’t had ownership of anything, of data or information or products or services online, but we have offline, right? Like if you own a car, you know that you own the car, you have the keys, you have the deed to the car, you, you know that it’s sitting in your, in your driveway.

    [00:05:50] Brain: But if you think about it digitally, what have we, what do we even own? Like. One could even argue we don’t own our website, we don’t own our email addresses, right? Like we are technically like [00:06:00] leasing them from Google. We are, we own a domain for a certain amount of years and we’re using, you know, and so this idea of ownership, the underlying technology and the technology won’t matter in a couple years, is kind of like cell phone towers.

    [00:06:14] Brain: Like we don’t care the techno, we don’t care if it’s 5g, LTE. We just want the fastest service we can get and we want it to be everywhere and not to. That’s what this all is. The blockchain is technically the, the underlying technology. But for those that are interested in NFTs, what NFTs mean to me is it’s proof of ownership online.

    [00:06:34] Brain: That is, it cannot be disputed. And what, and the beauty of that is when an NF. When an NFT is created, it’s, it’s, it’s put onto the blockchain and everyone can see it, and nobody can edit it. Nobody can delete it. Nobody can. And so there’s an element of like kind of transparency and ownership online that we’ve never had before.

    [00:06:55] Brain: Now the question becomes what do you do with that? How do you use them? What are do they kind of [00:07:00] represent? And I’ll just say for those that you know, you might have heard about like bored apes or crypto punks or some of these ones, like Jimmy Fallon has one and all. Those are like kind of like 1% of what the value of NFTs are.

    [00:07:13] Brain: That is much more in the collectible space, but where we’re moving is community ownership, and it’s really valuable when it comes to like personal branding and that kind of space. Yeah.

    [00:07:24] April: Thank you for explaining all that. And that’s a perfect transition for people to understand, cuz they do, they see those and they’re like, why, you know, why do I need to own a collectible piece of art in, what does that have to do with my course or my mastermind or my book that I’m writing?

    [00:07:38] April: And, and what does that actually have to do with that is totally irrelevant. So thank you for, uh, creating that, you know, separation in that. So when we talk about community ownership, and of course every single leader. Entrepreneur, um, service-based professional, like we [00:08:00] want our people to grow as we grow, and the goal is to create this long-term journey so clients continue to grow with us.

    [00:08:07] April: They continue to be a part of what we’re doing, and we can create that journey, obviously with our offers and our programs. But what you’re explaining in this kind of all hands in village, Ownership is, I don’t thi think people have really have ever thought about this if they have not already been listening to your podcast every single day, which by the way, you guys, you need to make sure that you’re tuning into Brian’s podcast, , because this is where we learn, me and my boys, we binge Brian’s podcast to learn all about this.

    [00:08:40] April: But let’s talk about what, what do you mean by community ownership and, and why should we care about that as, as leaders?

    [00:08:49] Brain: Well, yeah. No, I think, I mean, it’s, it’s a beautiful thing. There wasn’t really a reason to care about it previously because we kind of separated online and offline. But if you think about it, like I’ll, I’ll use the [00:09:00] reference of the car and then I’ll tie it to the Mastermind, but there, there’s a reason that the emblem of our car is on the front of the car.

    [00:09:06] Brain: It says the name of the car that we own in the back, right? Like we we’re technically marketing for Mercedes, for Lexus, for Tesla. Every time we pull up. And part of that is because it’s like, Hey, we’re proud of what we own. Right. It’s a little bit of peacocking and like the, you pull in, you’re like, I’m, I’m a Jeep guy.

    [00:09:22] Brain: Right. Anyone that has a Jeep. Yeah. I like, it’s like a family. Like we feel like we’re that world, but interestingly enough, The things we own digitally. Where do we like peacock? How do we show up? If someone has followed you for all these years, how do they know what masterminds you belong to? How do they know what books you’ve bought?

    [00:09:40] Brain: How do they like, other than like someone coming in my house and seeing all these books in my bookshelf, there’s really no way for us to show well, who we belong to, what are the things that we’re about? And so what NFTs do in in one beautiful way, Is it turns word of mouth marketing into an actual powerful thing digitally.

    [00:09:59] Brain: Because [00:10:00] I, I use this example all the time. You know, I’m part of the National Speakers Association. I will walk into rooms with, you know, at an event, 500, you know, a thousand people. I have no idea of anyone in there, is part of the National Speakers Association. I can show up in a Facebook. Engaged for a year, have no idea of anyone else in there.

    [00:10:20] Brain: Is part of the National Speakers Association. Maybe they put it in their bio, maybe it’s a logo on their website. But imagine if you had a representation of that on your profile photo or in your digital wallet where I said, Hey, I’m gonna go check what April belongs to. And all of the things that you belong to are represented there.

    [00:10:40] Brain: and the proof of ownership exists because, let’s face it, I don’t believe everything I read on LinkedIn, right? Like there’s a lot of people that graduated from Harvard. I don’t believe they graduated from Harvard, right? , because how? How do we prove that they did? Like you literally just put in the years and the thing in the LinkedIn, like we don’t have to submit something, but imagine, and this is where we’re going.[00:11:00]

    [00:11:00] Brain: When we, in, let’s just say three to five years, every single thing, every time we, we, we finish, uh, a training. Every time. Let’s say you finish your master’s degree, you’re gonna get an N F T into your wallet that says, on this date, this person, we verify. And the beautiful thing about that is it’s on the blockchain.

    [00:11:19] Brain: Nobody can edit it. It shows that this university gave it to you in your wallet. And so now like proof of experience, proof of what we’re doing. And that’s gonna go into things like an author, right? Like we’ve seen, you know, people that make claims. Like I’m a, you know, ti you know, I’m a New York Times bestselling author.

    [00:11:37] Brain: Like how do we even prove that, right? Like, I mean like right. You know, if someone does pretty good content marketing, you can pretty much make all the Google results. Say that I’m the bestselling author, but imagine if when you became a New York Times bestselling author, they gave you an N F T that represented and proved that you did that.

    [00:11:55] Brain: That’s where we’re moving this. And so the things that we’re hearing right now, a lot of it’s collectibles, a [00:12:00] lot of it is like this kind of investment strategy, but where we’re moving that matters for the audience is that if you. Good person doing good things, and you want to have proof of all of the good things you’ve done.

    [00:12:12] Brain: NFTs and the blockchain are gonna make that possible.

    [00:12:16] April: Oh my gosh. As an entrepreneur, I have a, now, based on what you just said, I have a hundred different NFTs. I wanna create for our people. Yeah. Uh, this, this is, and again, you know, we actually as a team have been talking about this for a long time when we took our break on the podcast, is that, you know, there’s these people that are like these sweet.

    [00:12:37] April: Business engineers that we would love to identify who they are that have been listening to this show forever, because they believe in what they’re doing and in our relationship with them and helping them do that. And so, uh, of course, I know our listeners now have so many ideas. They’re like, oh, I, I wanna create this for my really cool, you know, retreat that I’m doing to identify the people that are gonna go in there, go there.[00:13:00]

    [00:13:00] April: First of all, I’ve, I have a million questions, but I think the first two most important questions are where does somebody display their NFTs? Like it, do they get, obviously they get something to put on their website, because you’re right, we’re trained to go to the website and look at their bio page, but like, where, where do we put them to display?

    [00:13:21] April: Where could I go to check out your, like what you own and, and what identifies you as a person?

    [00:13:29] Brain: Yeah, so like, and this is, you know, this is where one of those things like the technology’s kind of keeping up with us as we go, and you know, just for context as well, like, you know, Starbucks just announced that they’re moving their entire reward system.

    [00:13:40] Brain: They, they’ve added on an N F T component. They call ’em, they call ’em digital stamps. Those are NFTs. Um, on Instagram, they’re calling ’em digital collectibles at the moment, so I can post my digital collectible on, actually, if you go to my Instagram account, my last three posts, two of them are actually NFTs that are verified.

    [00:13:59] Brain: So you can click [00:14:00] on the photo, it’ll pop up and tell you what the photo is. But if you say, I wanna more information, you’ll click a button and it’s gonna open up a marketplace that’s called open. And so right now open is the most popular marketplace. But I want you to think of opens. See, kind of like Amazon, where Amazon doesn’t really own any of the products that we, we go to Amazon for.

    [00:14:23] Brain: They’re owned, they’re somewhere else, but it’s like kind of like that display dashboard front door. But the ownership component is a tied to what we are, what is referred to as a digital wallet. And this is where right now on like I, I tell people a lot of times, I want you thinking about the use cases and thinking about the value and start building, okay, how do we, how do we get this to our audience?

    [00:14:45] Brain: What, who are the people that we would want to create? But some of the technology is still a little bit hard. The barrier to e entry is a little high because there’s this wallet that you know that it most people know. The wallet’s called Meta Mask is the name of the wallet that is most. [00:15:00] But the thing about meta mask wallet is that like I could, I could technically send you to a, a, a portfolio landing page and you could see everything that is in my meta mask, but it would feel very like disconnected cuz you would see like a picture of a monkey.

    [00:15:15] Brain: You’d see some of my own art. You’d see art that I’ve bought. From like a collector. And so where we’re moving is that we are going to be able to display these in a more transparent way. And some of the tech is coming, like right now, like even Instagram, when I open Instagram to post my digital collectible, it says Connect your wallet.

    [00:15:34] Brain: I collect that, it, it opens up a pop-up and says, do you wanna authenticate like your wallet to Instagram? Which is what I’m doing technically in that, like posting there to Instagram. But that’s where things get a little bit overwhelming because it’s like, well, how do I see someone else’s? How do I, you know, get some on my own?

    [00:15:51] Brain: And then I, I know the question that comes afterwards is like, well, how do I create my own NFTs? Right? Like, now I wanna, I wanna create like that, that same piece. And [00:16:00] the beauty of it. There’s lots of different options and ways to do it. Just recently, just this week, Reddit, which is, you know, Reddit is one of the largest social communities in the world.

    [00:16:11] Brain: They just rolled out NFTs over the last three months that they deal it all natively in the Reddit platform. So if you’re a Reddit user, you could click on your avatar and say, I wanna create a digital collect. That represents me and they would actually allow you to buy it. You could buy it with us dollars, you know, and they were ranging from like 15 to a hundred dollars.

    [00:16:31] Brain: Now it feels weird cuz you’re like, wait, why am I buying my avatar? But we also have to remember our kids are buying Roblox skins and, you know, halo, uh, avatars and I mean, everything Yeah. In this world is very digital skin. Like, and I will just tell anyone, once you do it, once you’re kind of. Oh, I kind of like that I get to purchase and own something that represents me, right?

    [00:16:55] Brain: Because like if someone went to my Twitter account route right now, you’ll see that like my [00:17:00] Twitter account is a, is a, my photo is an octagon, not a circle. The reason that is, is because I’ve verified that what I’m displaying is an N F T that I own. And so it’s actually built into Twitter as well right now.

    [00:17:13] Brain: But I think the bigger picture of this is where we’re going is eventually digital wallet. Will be the new single sign on for everything. So rather than saying, do you wanna log in with your email, your Facebook, or your Gmail, what it’ll say is, do you wanna log in with your Facebook, your email, or your digital wallet?

    [00:17:31] Brain: And what the beauty of that digital wallet is, which is different than Facebook, different than Google is, I own the wallet. No one has the keys to it. Now here’s the downside of. I, if I lose the password, I lose access to my wallet cuz I, I own it, right? There’s no like, there’s no digital place that I can call up and say, can you reset my password?

    [00:17:52] Brain: It’s like I am the owner of it. And so we’re moving toward the, the framework of this is called decentralization, but we’re not there and like, [00:18:00] That’s where I think everyone can get very overwhelmed. I, I’m not like a crypto, like massive crypto fan. Like I look at cryptocurrencies as kinda like investing, like kind of stock market investing.

    [00:18:09] Brain: But I don’t look at crypto in the same way that I look at NFTs for entrepreneurs. So for those that are thinking about this, I always say, like, my number one tagline is, I got lots of taglines. That’s kinda what we do. But, um, the, the one that I always say is, you wanna be a collector. Before you’re a creator, and that’s very hard for someone that preaches, press the damn button.

    [00:18:28] Brain: Like I, I will promise you, once you buy your first N F T and like Starbucks is rolling it out here in the United States over the next two months, all of a sudden you’re gonna be like, oh, I can buy this in Starbucks. It’s gonna give me a discount, and I’m also gonna have a chance to be sent. To Peru on this exclusive, you know, expedition to share how Starbucks does their copy process.

    [00:18:50] Brain: Like that’s how they’re kind of doing it. So we’re seeing the onboarding coming in lots of different ways. But yeah, it’s a very, um, the tech, the tech simplifying the technology is where [00:19:00] we’re at right now in this onboarding, you know, kind of N F T world.

    [00:19:04] April: That explains so much. Um, can you share a little bit about your process in going through, in creating your A D H D coin?

    [00:19:13] April: Can you talk a little bit about like the learning curve that you went through? Um, share with everybody what that coin is and you know, the. How you came to decide that that was what you wanted to do, and really just H how did you actually do that? I know we don’t have a ton of time, but kind of high level so people at least understand it’s like we don’t know what we don’t know, and so I think that would be really helpful.

    [00:19:35] Brain: Yeah, so there’s so NFTs. Technically, if you think about it this way, it’s a token that has a piece of art that is the front door, like the demonstration of it, right? So if you think about that non fungible token, well, there’s also tokens that are creator coins that allow you to create your own economy.

    [00:19:52] Brain: And so I was actually looking at Patreon. I’m a huge fan of Patreon. Love what Patreon can represent. I’m a big fan of like Mighty [00:20:00] Networks and a lot of these, uh, you know, really nice, uh, communities that we can build the problem, become. When you’re monetizing or you’re creating some kind of, you know, uh, economy there, you’re attached to the platform, right?

    [00:20:12] Brain: So like, if you’re building on Patreon, someone’s, it’s a subscription model. Well, goes back to my first comment on like, I wanna reward my super fans and I don’t want it to be just pay to play. And so in the, what I created, uh, a little over, uh, 19 months ago, 20 months ago, was a crater coin. Now I will tell you, I was gonna launch on Patreon and someone presented this option of a coin and I was like, I’ll try it.

    [00:20:36] Brain: I’ll, I’ll sure, I’ll, I’ll see if that works. Um, it took me eight months of trying it to figure out like what the hell this whole thing is, but what is beautiful about it? Different than what? Like a traditional subscription model is, is I have a coin that is backed by a 16 z, one of the largest venture capital companies in the world.

    [00:20:56] Brain: And what the beauty of that is, it allows people to [00:21:00] buy and sell coin. Kind of like, if you think about it, it’s investing in, in the community that I am building, but you don’t actually have to buy or sell to, to benefit from it. So here’s the examples that I would use is, If you engage in our discord, which is where our community hangs out, or if you listen to our podcast, I will often give away coins and, and reward people for saying, Hey, what anyone that clicks on this link, you’re gonna get five d h ADHD coins.

    [00:21:28] Brain: Now, A D H D just happens to be the name that I use. The coin could be named anything. But what works out really neat on this is that there are people in my community that have spent $0. On my coin, but they’ve been actively engaged supporting me and they’ve, they’ve been rewarded with coin and they’ve been able to get to a certain level of coin and based on what they’re holding, it unlocks certain things.

    [00:21:53] Brain: So, and this is where it’s like a real big difference between subscription and non-subscription is that you don’t send me the coin. [00:22:00] To partake in the things that you get. So one of the examples is, uh, every Friday I do a co a call for those that hold 93 coin or more. 93 happen to be my hockey number. So I just use that as the benchmark.

    [00:22:12] Brain: And the beauty of it is I have people that join that call. They have spent $0. On the coin, but they’ve been active in my commuting. I have others that joined the call that found out about it a week ago, and they said, Brian, um, I wanna get on that call, but I don’t, I’m not gonna spend months going in your discord.

    [00:22:29] Brain: I don’t got time for that. I’m like, okay, well, you can buy 93 coins. Now, the beauty of it is all you have to do is hold them. You don’t send them to me as a, as the entrepreneur, as the creator. Now you might be saying, well, well Brian, how do, how do you get rewarded? Like, how do I benefit from that? Well, I hold.

    [00:22:46] Brain: Over 50% of the coin. And the more people that hold the coin, the more the coin’s value goes up. Now, on top of the fact that I can transact in it, actually anyone can transact in it. So I had someone in my community that said, [00:23:00] Hey, I just brought some brand new LeBron James sneakers and I would love to trade them for a D H D coin because I wanna join that call.

    [00:23:09] Brain: But I don’t have a financial means. Well, they happen to be my size, but it could have been anyone. And I said, okay, I will send you a certain amount of a D H D coin. He sent me those sneakers. He’s now able to participate on the call and join. And the beauty of it is if he no longer wants to be a part of my community, he can actually sell those coins and move forward.

    [00:23:30] Brain: And so, like unlike what you know, like I, I think of it like from like a gym membership or even like your favorite online course, we’ve all bought online courses. We we’re about 30% complete and we’re like, you know what? I no longer need this, or I’ve changed, or I, my life is gone. The, the hardest part of that is you kind of felt like it’s a waste, right?

    [00:23:48] Brain: Like I bought it, it’s over, but what if you owned one of those limited seats or a certain amount of coin? Got you. That access, well, now there’s like that ownership exchange, which is that same ownership that exists in aee, [00:24:00] so the crater coins is, I would. There’s a few, there’s not many of us that have it.

    [00:24:04] Brain: Uh, one of the better use cases out there is Joe Peli, who’s kind of known as the godfather of content marketing. Um, he does it to where if you, if you share his newsletter, he’ll give you $20 of the coin for every person that signs up. And then if you have a hundred of his coin, You get free merchandise and you get access to an exclusive chat that he replies to on a regular basis.

    [00:24:28] Brain: For him, he’s using it as affiliate marketing, uh, play, but rather than just giving someone dollars that they can go spend somewhere, he’s giving them like investment into his brand, the tilt coin. And so those are like, to me, the tilt coin. It’s probably the best use case other than myself and, and Joe and I have worked together on kind of building our arenas, but these are the things that are moving forward.

    [00:24:48] Brain: And if it sounds a little foreign and complex, it is, but we are moving to a world where much like Patreon or membership sites seem very foreign for many years. Eventually [00:25:00] it’ll become the native piece that says, you know what? I wanna, I wanna be a part of the Sweet Life community. I wanna hold the sweet life coin and I want to, I wanna invest in what we’re building as a whole.

    [00:25:10] Brain: And the beauty of it for us as entrepreneurs is you don’t need thousands and thousands and thousands of people. It’s really just your core group of people that are allowing you, kind of explore and grow from, you know, your coin. That is so

    [00:25:21] April: fascinating and I, uh, great examples. Thank you for putting them in a way that helps for us to understand.

    [00:25:27] April: And I know that immediately our, our listeners are going, okay, well what do I currently have? What value am I creating? How well am I doing, bringing in community? Uh, and it’s really a good almost. Check for how we are as businesses saying are, are we continuing to create things that are community driven?

    [00:25:46] April: Are we, you know, crowdsourcing type of things that we’re doing? Are we caring about those people that did buy that course and that didn’t finish it? Cuz 98% of people don’t finish ’em anymore. And, you know, are we actually caring about [00:26:00] what’s happening with our content and making sure that our content and our teachings are, are actually being immersed into the world in a way where other people can.

    [00:26:09] April: Participate in it. Thank you for sharing your experience in this. And I also, I mean, that is exactly what you were saying. So it’s important, it’s important for our listeners to know that immediately people are like, oh my gosh, I wanna create my own thing. Right? But I don’t hold any coin. And I was even confused when you were saying, because I, like, I have my Coinbase wallet where like my, my Bitcoin and you know, my Ethereum and stuff is, but that’s not even what we’re talking about here.

    [00:26:35] April: Right. And so, So many different, I think that a glossary. Um, do you have a glossary of terms ?

    [00:26:42] Brain: I I have a podcast. One of the, one of the episodes that’s super popular is it’s 41 terms of web three that everyone should know. And I literally go through all 41 terms. There’s, there’s a YouTube video on it as well.

    [00:26:52] Brain: I’ll send you the link so you can put it, uh, in the show notes for anyone that wants cuz it trust me. Okay. The terms are as just as Confus like I worked in the government [00:27:00] and everything has an acronym and was confusing in terms and when I got in this space, I was. What is like, I was like, I need a wallet.

    [00:27:06] Brain: And then what’s the difference between a coin and a crypto and is it exchange the same thing as a, it, it, it blew my mind. So I did an entire episode, uh, you know, and I’ll give you that link so you guys can share that out as well.

    [00:27:18] April: Okay. For sure. So we’re gonna share that one, and then I’m also gonna share your very first, your very first, you know, n F T 365 podcast episode that you dropped.

    [00:27:26] April: I mean, li I, Sam, my youngest and I listened to it all the way, driving down from the mountains and we kept like hitting pause and then rewinding it and we’re like, wait, wait, wait. Let me hear that again. Let me hear it again. And by the time we got down the mountain, we totally understood the importance of our brand identity.

    [00:27:42] April: In these NFTs and it was, it was so cool and it was just so, it was just such a great way to understand and wrap our head around it. So yes, the glossary one, we’ll make sure all of you guys have it in the show notes. And just if you aren’t really sure where to start, then just start at the beginning and just go with Brian and [00:28:00] grow with Brian.

    [00:28:01] April: Um, thank you so, so, so much. And is that the best place for people to connect with you and follow what you’re doing here because you truly are a thought leader in this space. So how is the

    [00:28:10] Brain: best way. Twitter is like my, you know, my favorite. I’m active everywhere. So literally wherever your favorite platform is, they can find me.

    [00:28:16] Brain: Um, but, you know, I did, I have done a daily podcast now, 300 and today’s date, 346. So 346 days in a row out, missing a day. But that’s a lot of content, right? And so I always tell people, you know, starting at the beginning, I’ve purposely made it evergreen. I purpose. It’s not news heavy, it’s not crypto bro heavy.

    [00:28:33] Brain: It’s not like my goal is to t. What is going on? And so, you know, start at the beginning and then you can kind of pick and choose, like kind of going through the, the titles of the episodes. The podcast is in every platform. We also do it if you’re not like a, uh, if you wanna like learn with some visual represe.

    [00:28:50] Brain: Representation. Uh, we also have the YouTube, uh, as well that I do a video. Some of them I put like, you know, video with like, you know, a lot of instruction on the screen. Others, I just kind of [00:29:00] try to talk through things at, at, at that level. But yeah. Uh, NFT 365 is the, is the podcast and we’re counting down, we’re almost to a a year.

    [00:29:08] Brain: Uh, and that’s where the 365 came from is, uh, I. I blindly thought, well, what if I did a daily show and I didn’t think I could do it? But now we’re close to the finish line and, uh, I kind of proving myself wrong, but yeah, NFT 365 is the best place for sure.

    [00:29:21] April: Are you gonna stop on 360 6? So are you gonna take a day

    [00:29:25] Brain: off?

    [00:29:25] Brain: Off?

    [00:29:25] Brain: Off

    [00:29:26] Brain: So there will be an episode on day 360 6, but I, I am not continuing every day. The, the podcast will continue. We’ll have a couple episodes a week, kind of as we move into season two. Um, but yeah, I can never do, uh, it, it’s the, it’s the craziest, most exciting, most overwhelming, most sacrifice I’ve ever had to do for any content.

    [00:29:45] Brain: But, um, great. I, yeah, I’m very glad that, uh, season one will be coming to our finale Very.

    [00:29:51] April: Oh my gosh. Yeah. Yeah, I’m sure. I’m sure you did. You did more than what I’ve done in five years and in a year. It’s crazy. And I needed a year off from that. [00:30:00] Right. So I can only imagine. Thank you so much for creating all that though, because that’s where I learn and that, I mean, that’s where all of us learn is you forging the way and making it in a way that’s easier for us to understand.

    [00:30:10] April: Because you came from this space too. Like you have the ability to explain it to, you know, the, the knowledge, the. Economy as well and being in, you know, the, the, the, also like the government background and the speaker and the millennial stuff and you just have the ability to just bring it all the, be together and explain it in a way that actually makes sense to us.

    [00:30:30] April: And I appreciate you so much for that. Thank you so much for being back here on the show and we will be following along and tapping into all of your faucet of wisdom more and more. Thank you. I appreciate you.
