    I AM CHANGING DESTINATION DIFFERENT

    I AM CHANGING DESTINATION DIFFERENT

    After 127 episodes it feels about time to make some changes to the podcast.

    I've done a lot of thinking over the last few weeks. While there are some bright spots and I do truly believe I'm onto something with this podcast, the show is lacking the momentum and the focus that great podcasts have.

    Because of that, I'm going to take time to make much-needed changes to get it growing.

    You can expect to see changes to the following elements of Destination Different:


    The format - Right now it's intro, music, host intro, music, interview with no editing, music, host outro, music. I need to tighten it and make it more interesting
    The audience - Right now I haven't broken beyond my friends/family/friends of guests audience. In order for DD to grow I'm going to need strangers to be talking about it
    The topic - Right now the show description literally says "A show about creatives, entrepreneurs, adventurists, and everyone in between." If it's for everyone, then it's for no one. I need to focus my topic and niche this thing down.
    The host - Right now, I'm ok as a host. I need to think about how I can be an entertainer and an educator. Listeners may come for the guests, but the reason they'll stay is because of me. That means I need to get better.

    So that's the plan. 

    If you've listened to this show more than a handful of times I BEG you to reach out, so that I can talk to you about how to make the show better.

    Changes are coming to Destination Different. Let's get weird.

    Jersey Chasers - Creating Custom Sportswear With Adam Lavitola and Nick Winter of Clubhouse Athletic

    Jersey Chasers - Creating Custom Sportswear With Adam Lavitola and Nick Winter of Clubhouse Athletic

    I honestly think my dream job might be creating ridiculous custom jerseys and apparel for sports teams.

    And that's EXACTLY what the fellas at Clubhouse Athletic are doing.

    The idea all started when Adam Lavitola was in college and began referring to himself as "The Custom Guy." He would create custom tee-shirts, tank tops, jerseys, you name it, for college friends, intramural teams, greek life events, etc. And as business continued to roll in he realized if he was making custom everything it made it pretty tricky for people to know what to go to him for. He narrowed the scope to focus specifically on sportswear and Clubhouse Athletic was born.

    Over the years Clubhouse has collaborated on some amazing pieces with brands, sports teams, and individuals; and pride themselves on being the most collaborative partners in the business. A little over a year and a half ago, Adam brought on Nick as the Head of Business Development; the company's first full-time hire to help grow the brand. And just recently, in January of 2022, Adam made the leap and started working on Clubhouse full time. I have no doubt there are big things coming for them in the year ahead.

    We talked all about their philosophy on going deep vs wide, how they approach a custom piece, and how Adam operates as a color blind designer. 

    It's an awesome episode. If you want to check out what Clubhouse is up to you can follow them on Instagram @clubhouseathletic or get in touch about a custom jersey on their website at clubhouseathletic.com

    Name, Image, Likeness - Creating Opportunities For College Athletes With Pat Johnson of Vantage Sports

    Name, Image, Likeness - Creating Opportunities For College Athletes With Pat Johnson of Vantage Sports

    Up until July of 2021 college athletes couldn't make money off their own name, image, or likeness.

    While schools and conferences and the NCAA raked in hundreds of millions of dollars a year, the student-athletes who were putting on the show were mostly left out to dry.

    That all changed last summer with some new NIL legislation. And Pat Johnson saw an opportunity to build a business in a completely untouched industry.

    So Vantage Sports was born. It's an online platform that connects current college athletes with prospective college athletes (i.e. high school or middle school students) for 1-on-1 training or group sessions; allowing college athletes to make money from their name and for younger athletes to get training from the best in the biz. It's a win win.

    We talked all about how Pat birthed this idea WELL before the NIL legislation went into place, the struggles of raising funds to push the business forward, and how he's leveraging partnerships to elevate the brand.

    If you want to check out the Vantage platform you can find them over at vantagesports.com or on Instagram @vantagesports_nil

    Hope For Homeless - Creating Debit Cards For The Homeless With GiveCard

    Hope For Homeless - Creating Debit Cards For The Homeless With GiveCard

    It has happened to all of us at one point or another...

    You come across a homeless person on the street and want to give them a couple bucks for a sandwich or a water or some basic necessities. But when you reach into your wallet you realize you've got no cash.

    In an increasingly digital world the homeless have fewer options.

    GiveCard has set out to fix that. Founded by Lurein Perera and Diksha Thach, the duo's model is to put a couple hundred dollars a month on a debit card, put it in the hands of the homeless, and trust that they will do good with it.

    So far it seems to be working.

    The non-profit has already seen multiple homeless participants find places to live after getting access to a card. I'm over here hosting a podcast and they're out here changing the world... Color me impressed.

    If you want to keep up with what GiveCard is doing or donate to this incredible cause, you can support on their website at givecard.io.

    Professional Creative - Podcasting, Showrunning, Book Writing, and Beyond With Jay Acunzo

    Professional Creative - Podcasting, Showrunning, Book Writing, and Beyond With Jay Acunzo

    Have you ever wanted to become a professional creative? To make a living with your own voice and words and thoughts and actions?

    I know I have.

    And if there's ever a person to learn from... it's Jay Acunzo.

    Jay started his career in the marketing world and eventually made the switch to life as a full-time podcaster, author, showrunner, and speaker; sharing his knowledge gained in the business world with others looking to rise above all the average content out there. He got so good at running his own show, that dozens of others now go to him to help launch, run, and sometimes even host their shows.

    Jay dabbles in a little bit of everything, but at the end of the day he's a storyteller. And while he says he's not there yet, his goal is to one day become the "Anthony Bourdain of the Business World." I'd say he's well on his way.

    If you want to check out Jay's work you can find him on his podcast, Unthinkable, you can read his book, Break The Wheel, or you can just check out his website jayacunzo.com to see all the other creative things he's up to.

    Meet The Meat Gang - Made-To-Order Charcuterie With Gilli Rozynek & Morgan Biles Of Kured

    Meet The Meat Gang - Made-To-Order Charcuterie With Gilli Rozynek & Morgan Biles Of Kured

    Chipotle serves up made-to-order Mexican bowls. Sweetgreen serves up made-to-order salads to go...

    Now Kured is serving up made-to-order charcuterie boards and boxes.

    What started with Gilli Rozynek driving around Cape Cod delivering meats and cheeses out of the trunk of her car has evolved into a full-fledge operation with multiple retail stores, an e-commerce offering, catering for your next event, ANDDDD an eye on expansion.

    Kured officially opened its first retail shop in June of 2021 with absolutely zero experience in the food service industry outside of waiting tables in high school, but that didn't stop them. They learned on the fly and business has been booming ever since.

    In this episode we talked all about the logistics of opening a retail store, how Morgan went from intern to co-founder, and partnering with local artists to bring some life and personality to their brand. 

    I also dub them the Unofficially Official Inventors of the Meat Cone (trademark pending).

    Incredible episode. If you want to get your hands on some charcuterie check out kured.co or follow them on Instagram @kured.co for the latest and greatest.

Fantastic 😍 Chefs kiss!

A fun, interesting and eye-opening show that interviews people from all walks of life. Destination Different proves that there is no “one path” professionally & inspires listeners to break the mold. Love the interviews.

Tremendous Range...unlike MusicMark

Easily one of the most underrated podcast on the east coast. A variety of guest and topics can attracts listeners from all walks of life.

People who ridicule and criticize this podcast are muppets. MusicMark - absolute joke. Guy rides a bike - strike 1, has been on Twitter since ‘08 and has less that 45 followers - strike 2. The tweet at Vince Wilfork in 2009.. pathetic bro...soft strike 3, looking, not swinging. Take a seat and let Dunn the goat aka Nails aka Savage from Seacoast aka Mr. put MusicMark in a ⚰️ do his craft without bums chipping in. ✌🏼

Definitely not jay mariotti ,

MusicMark has elongated nipples

MusicMark has nipples that hang off his withered pectorals like flaccid baby penis’s. When he wears tight shirts it looks like he has 2 earthworms taped to his chest, but nope those are just MusicMark’s alarmingly long, skinny nipples. I would not trust a word out of MusicMark’s mouth or twitter fingers, since he clearly has a lot of internalized trauma stemming from his externalized nipples.
