    EP 17 - MMA Fighter Eddie Alvarez’s Journey from the Streets to the Ring (and Bitcoin)

    EP 17 - MMA Fighter Eddie Alvarez’s Journey from the Streets to the Ring (and Bitcoin)

    Former UFC champion and former Bellator champion Eddie Alvarez is my latest guest on Next with Novo. Growing up in tough inner-city Philadelphia, Eddie started fighting, both in and out of the ring, at a young age. He started wrestling in local PAL leagues and high school competitions, making his way to the national championships against prestigious prep schools, and against the odds of his difficult upbringing. Left with the responsibilities of looking out for his siblings and eventually starting a family of his own at only 20 years old, Eddie found work in concrete before starting to box at local fights for much-needed money. He eventually progressed to MMA fighting in the Bellator league before finding success in UFC, where he'd become a world champion at 30. Eddie jumped on Zoom with me to talk about his inspiring journey from street fighter to UFC champion, as well as his early participation in Beat the Streets, the community-based wrestling nonprofit I'm proud to have launched in NYC. You'll also hear about the current state of Eddie's fighting career and how he started taking a deep interest in the stock market, real estate, and, eventually, bitcoin.

    EP 16 - NFL Icon Ray Lewis on Inspiring Greatness & Turning Pain Into Joy

    EP 16 - NFL Icon Ray Lewis on Inspiring Greatness & Turning Pain Into Joy

    We’ve got a special edition of Next with Novo with one of the greats of our time (and the NFL), Baltimore Ravens defensive linebacker & University of Miami Hurricanes icon, plus Florida state champ wrestler, Ray Lewis. Ray is simply one of the most motivating and inspirational speakers and humans I have ever met, as well as a guy with a big heart. During our chat, Ray takes us through his tough upbringing in Florida, the absence of his father, and how he discovered his natural talent for wrestling before ending up in football. Ray caught a lucky break early in his football career and got the last available scholarship at University of Miami, where he'd become one of the most iconic players in the  school’s history. After his legendary career with the Baltimore Ravens, where he won two Super Bowls, Ray retired from the NFL, but as he put it in the podcast, "not from life." Since leaving the game, Ray has found success in business, motivational speaking, and done some amazing philanthropy with the Ray Lewis 52 foundation. He also recently started a  philanthropic, solar-focused organization, Power 52, where he's creating opportunities for at-risk youth. We talked about Ray's work in criminal justice, how to inspire leadership and navigate life’s detours & challenges, finding purpose after the pain and loss of COVID, and what he's learned during his incredible journey through life and sports.

    EP 15 - How Abby Falik & Global Citizen Year Are Rethinking Pre-College, Post-COVID

    EP 15 - How Abby Falik & Global Citizen Year Are Rethinking Pre-College, Post-COVID

    COVID put a wrench in the college admissions process that forced students, educators, parents, and the like, to reimagine their future. My latest guest on Next with Novo, Global Citizen Year’s Abby Falik, is one of the country’s top experts on kids transitioning from high school to college, or taking a year off before. Abby’s organization rethinks the concept of a gap year with a program that takes seniors and prepares them for what’s to come through a unique recruitment process and a variety of programs that help shape their trajectories by focusing on leadership and values. My conversation with Abby outlines the difficult transformation of the college admission process due to COVID, the inequalities and pressures that have built up over time, and what Global Citizen Year is doing to build a new path for students. Abby also shares a ton of insight and advice for students on how to capitalize on this time in the best way possible. As a father whose own kids have gone through this process, this episode was particularly relevant to many of my own experiences. Hope you enjoy.

    EP 14 - Former Tennessee Titan Player Derrick Morgan on Medical Cannabis in the NFL & Impact Investing

    EP 14 - Former Tennessee Titan Player Derrick Morgan on Medical Cannabis in the NFL & Impact Investing

    At only 32 years old, former Tennessee Titans linebacker Derrick Morgan has already accomplished a lot. Derrick played for nine years in the NFL after playing college ball at Georgia Tech. During his rookie year, an injury pushed Derrick to start thinking long-term about life after football, having more control and understanding over his finances. He started doing some soul searching. After retiring from the NFL in 2019, Derrick turned his focus to real-estate and ethical investing. He launched the KNGDM Impact Fund, a 200-million dollar opportunity zone fund that focuses on bringing wealth and economic mobility to marginalized, lower-income communities in hopes of closing our nation's wealth gap. He's also become a vocal advocate for medical cannabis and the benefits it can offer former pro athletes who are struggling with pain management after years of injuries. Derrick joined me on Next with Novo to talk about his charity work, his experiences with racism and inequality in America, and his new podcast coming soon to Clubhouse.

    EP 13 - Swiss Contemporary Visual Artist Urs Fischer on His First NFT & the Future of Digital Art | Special Uncut Edition

    I loved the conversation I had in my latest episode of Next with Novo so much I wanted to try something new. Today, I’m releasing the uncut version of my interview with Swiss contemporary visual artist Urs Fischer on his upcoming NFT drop, digital art and the future of how we interact as humans—both in real life and in the metaverse. For those that don’t know, Urs, whose work has appeared at New York's iconic Gagosian gallery, is not only an icon in the traditional art world but someone who's married physical and digital art for over a decade. Urs has found acclaim in different mediums throughout his career in digital and physical spaces—from giant clay sculptures and packs of cigarettes to immersive video installations. Whether it lives in a digital or physical space, Urs creates work that will stand the test of time across movements and generations.

    EP 12 - NFTs & Augmented Reality

    I'm bullish on crypto. Particularly NFTs. So I decided to drop a bonus episode with some midnight insights following my latest Next with Novo episode with Swiss visual artist, Urs Fischer. Will AR & VR allow us to wear digital art in new ways? Phones, screens, jewelry, the metaverse...I think our relationship with these things are going to be changing very soon. Give it a listen and check out my episode with Urs to hear more about his first NFT auction and the future of digital art.
