    Graduating from the Grind of the Creator Economy, Metalabels vs DAOs, Collaborating Your Creative Pursuits, and More | Yancey Strickler from Metalabel

    #038 - Welcome to another episode of Quorum, where we believe that contributing to a DAO is the best way to find engaging and rewarding work in the new Web3 economy. 
    In today’s show, Sam and I spoke with Yancey, Cofounder of Metalabel and former Cofounder of Kickstarter. Metalabel is an organization that is building tools and resources to help you be more collaborative with your creative pursuits. 
    Today’s episode was really a deep dive into the modern creative process. How technology has incentivized us to compete, and alternative paths we can choose as creators to avoid loneliness, have a greater cultural impact on the world, and have more fun while doing it.
    You’ll discover: how to “graduate” from the creator economy, Metalabels vs DAOs, the merits of open vs gated content, and why Yancey believes that creativity is not democratic, and much more.

    More about this episode:
    If you’ve been in the game of creating content for any of these big platforms like twitter, youtube, google search, etc, I’m sure you’ve felt the rat race that content marketing can become. Sometimes it just feels like you can’t ever stop making content. You just need to keep making more and more in order to stay relevant, and that kind of sucks the fun out of it.
    These platforms have forced us to compete against each other for the attention of searchers. On one hand it’s enabled some amazing content and creators to rise to the top, but on the other hand it’s also led to many creators getting burnt out and quitting the content game altogether.
    In this episode, Yancey shares alternative ways of organizing yourself as a creator that make content (and other creative passions) more fun. 
    Yancey and his team at Metalabel, believe that there is a better way for us to work, and they are building the tools and resources needed for this change to become a reality. Strap in for a look into what the future of the creator economy might become and how YOU can be a part of the change.

    #037 - Welcome to another episode of Quorum, where we believe that contributing to a DAO is the best way to find engaging and rewarding work in the new Web3 economy. 
    In today’s show I spoke with Kairon, Contributor at Radar — which (in their words) is the first community owned & powered futures engine, discovering, incubating, & delivering better futures.
    You’ll discover: How earning tokens can lead to real income opportunities, tips for becoming a super contributor in Web3, leadership without having to be in the spotlight, how to leave projects and communities graciously, and, a high level look at Radar’s Landmark Report called “A Future In Sync” and Futurethon.

    =======================
    More about this episode:
    Kairon is such a kind hearted and giving person. It’s always a pleasure speaking with him because he truly wants to find win-win opportunities for himself and the communities that he participates in.
    I wanted to reach out to him to see how his DAO lifestyle had progressed since we last spoke back in early 2021. Previously we talked about his experience at RabbitHole in episode #10 titled “Secrets to Adopting a Web3 Mindset” which I’d highly recommend checking out as well.
    If you are curious how some people manage to make a living from contributing to DAOs then this is a great companion episode to that first one I mentioned. Kairon has both the mindset and the strategies to add value to DAO and to make a living in return - and he shares both in this episode.

    #036 - Welcome to another episode of Quorum, where we believe that contributing to a DAO is the best way to find engaging and rewarding work in the new Web3 economy. 
    In today’s show, we are doing something a bit different. Sam was the interviewer and I was actually put in the guest seat.
    You’ll discover: how to use business to build the lifestyle you want, the rollercoaster of entrepreneurship, turning down deals to buy the business for $4M, why my parents thought I was a drug dealer when I first started my business, and much more.

    More about this episode:
    In working on this podcast it’s been really fun to tease out the backgrounds, expertise and knowledge from some of our amazing guests from Web3. And in today’s episode, Sam thought it would be fun to switch roles and hear more about my background and journey from Web2 to Web3.
    We discussed my first business (Healthy Hemp Oil), which was in the Cannabis space. It was an online ecommerce brand helping educate people on the power of CBD and it also curated and sold my favorite products in the space.
    These days you may get some eye rolls when talking about CBD because it seems that everyone and their grandma knows about it — and perhaps even uses it. But back when I started it in 2014, I used to get a lot of puzzled and confusing looks when I told people what I did.
    We dive into my entrepreneurial journey of quitting my job, moving to Thailand and building this business to over $12M+ of total revenue and over 20K+ customers in our 9 year span as a company.
    We also discuss how I pivoted into Web3, got involved in BanklessDAO and launched the Bounty Hunter podcast (now Quorum) with Sam.
    Buckle up for a raw look at entrepreneurship, lifestyle design and trying to figure out life.

    The Web3 Building Playbook, DAO Onboarding Strategies, Nike & Starbucks in Web3, and More | Yury Lifshits from Superdao

    #035 - Welcome to another episode of Quorum, where we believe that contributing to a DAO is the best way to find engaging and rewarding work in the new Web3 economy. 
    In today’s show, I spoke with Yury Lifshits, CEO of Superdao — an all-in-one DAO formation platform that makes it super easy for anyone to create and grow DAOs (even if you have no idea how to code smart contracts — like me).
    You’ll discover: new onboarding techniques for Web3, why big brands are getting into Web3 and what that means for builders, how to make your product super valuable to your users and community, why “heads down and build” is terrible advice, and much more.

    =======================
    More about this episode:
    Yury is such a wealth of knowledge. He’s particularly well known in Web3 for his expertise around DAOs. In the first interview I did with Yury back in April, we dove into his background, we teased apart the  Superdao platform and how it helps builders start DAOs.
    In this follow up episode, we go deep into how to build great products and communities that people will love. Yury shares his experience building Superdao, how he used the startup playbook to validate his hypothesis about how to add value to his potential customers.
    In this bear market, finding your true product market fit is what is separating really strong communities and products from the ones that are losing ground and contributors.
    Yury’s not afraid to tell it like it is, and explains why he thinks that just putting your head down and building is terrible advice for leaders and builders in this space. In this episode, he offers sound advice for builders and contributors on what to focus on instead.

A good podcast to listen to!

I am particular about my podcasts, I have a short-ish attention span and a low tolerance for bad quality.

This is a down to earth web3 focused podcast on how to make the best of your experience as a contributor. I appreciate this due to the fact that it’s so hard to find down to earth conversations about web 3. I’m pretty appreciative of having the chance to discover this.

Awesome Introduction to World of Web3 and DAOs

This isn’t your typical crypto podcast. Every week, Brandon has great conversations with people at the forefront of web3 and DAOs to talk about the future of work and the opportunities that are being built today—not which NFTs are mooning or how to trade in a bear market. If you want to learn what’s happening in web3 beyond the ups and downs of crypto markets, this is the podcast for you.

Great educational podcast about Web3 and DAOs

I have been slowly dipping my toes into Web3 and working DAOs over the past year or so, and this show has opened my eyes into way more things than I was initially anticipating.

I thought I was just going to learn about working in a DAO. But I’ve learned about that, some of the best tools to use to help solve problems that commonly arise in DAOs, and also gotten some behind the scenes looks at some of the tools that are still being built. The last episode I listened to I also learned about projects that aren’t specifically about DAOs, but projects that are being built for everyone, not just people in Web3.

Truly incredible show, with great guests and really amazing informational interviews.
