    Allie Whitefleet - Future of Digitizing & Democratizing Education for All (PowerMBA)

    In this episode I talk to Allie Whitefleet who helps out at the PowerMBA to come out with great easy to consume video content for those who want to pursue a business degree without having to break the bank.

    The PowerMBA is an online program that allows students to enroll all for under $1000 and gives them a quality MBA type of education in short form videos taught from founders, CEOs, entrepreneurs, and business owners who have built disruptive and huge companies in their respective fields.

    For example the cofounder of YouTube teaches as well as Netflix in some of the videos sharing what they've learned from building a business from scratch and things that they have learned by doing it not just from a textbook.

    We talk about how the future of education is moving online and how people are learning more from TikTok, YouTube, Instagram and from online resources on topics like ecommerce, social media marketing, and other valuable skills rather than traditional textbooks and teachers.

    We also touch on the importance of self-education and how important it is to take your education into your own hands since nobody else will be able to do the studying for you.

    If you're interested in learning more about getting an MBA degree from the comfort your own home and learn from top founders and entrepreneurs in our day and age at https://www.thepowermba.com/en/

    Joshua Mixon - VeVe OG turns $20k into $500k+ from Flipping NFTs

    In this episode I talk with my friend Joshua Mixon who is an OG in the VeVe App and has made great investments and flips early on to the point where he has turned a $20k investment into over $500k plus from flipping the right NFTs that have appreciated greatly since the launch of the VeVe App.

    If you aren't aware of the VeVe App, it is an app that allows you to buy gems within the app to buy collectibles that are integrated with augmented reality and in the future virtual reality. Their parent company Ecomi came out with their own wallet and now they are getting mass user adoption through their VeVe app where users can purchase their favorite collectibles as digital NFTs.

    VeVe has been working with the likes of Alfred Khan who brought Pokemon to the world through licensing and is working with VeVe as a licensing partner and has brought names like Batman, Superman, Adventure Time, and many more beloved brand names to the VeVe app.

    Hear Josh's story of how he has went from selling time shares and real estate to making a full time income flipping NFTs on the VeVe app. Hope you are inspired from his story to see that there are so many ways to make money out there and to educate yourself on what's possible if you just take a chance and try.

    Maxwell Gross - The Future of NFTs for Influencers & Celebrities (Superbid.io)

    Maxwell Gross - The Future of NFTs for Influencers & Celebrities (Superbid.io)

    In this episode I talk with the COO of Superbid.io Maxwell Gross about the future of where everything is headed with NFTs. After the success of NBA Topshot, Maxwell and his team discovered the potential for NFTs and the demand there is for moments with not just athletes but also with celebrities and influencers.

    They were able to secure influencers like Logan Paul who has released his own NFT line and collections and has partnered with Superbid.io to launch his NFT moments on that platform as well. Not only has Superbid partnered with influencers like Logan Paul but also they have made connections with other celebrities and influencers whose audience will buy their moments immortalized as NFTs and can have special access to them as well as to special experiences with their favorite influencers.

    Superbid.io will be an application you can use on your phone to bid for moments with celebrities and influencers who will post moments as NFTs that you can bid on and purchase. Some will give you special access or experiences with these influencers and some will be just be moments you can keep for yourself and resell for later if people want them.

    In a world where everything is moving digital and more and more things are becoming immortalized through digital artwork and assets, you can be sure to find some great moments and assets on Superbid's platform where many celebrities and influencers will be utilizing the power of NFTs to make money off of their greatest moments in their careers and life.

    Check out more about Superbid.io from their website and join their telegram to learn more about the future of NFTs. Also feel free to invest in their token before their official launch on September 7, 2021.

    You can follow them on Instagram @superbid.io and me on Instagram @ray.ahn. If you've been wanting to learn more about NFTs and crypto feel free to DM me on Instagram to learn more and get an invite to my group!

    Ben Chung - Changing the World through Dance (member of Kinjaz, Kaba Modern, and Jabbawockeez)

    Ben Chung - Changing the World through Dance (member of Kinjaz, Kaba Modern, and Jabbawockeez)

    In this episode I talk to Ben Chung who is a cofounder of Kinjaz, cofounder of Hitbeats app, and founder of the Chosun clothing brand. He used to be a member of the Jabbawockeez back in the day when they changed the world through dance when they won the America's Got Talent show.

      He shares his unconventional journey as an Korean American of making a living through dance and turning his love for dancing into a full-time business.  He started off learning Kpop dance moves, performed at his church talent performance, and eventually ended up joining dance groups that have made an international impact in the dance community by showing that dance teams can be the centerpiece of a show instead of just being back up dancers for a famous artist or musician.  

    Ben shares how his curiosity and ambition has led him down a path that he ended up creating his own path that doesn't fit the mold of getting a degree and a job after school.  He shares how it's important to learn the things that you are curious about, discover what you're passionate about, and keep pursuing your path and calling in life.   

    Ben shares how it's important to take risks to learn the things that you are passionate about and the path to making money will open up for you since you can make money doing anything nowadays.  

    Hope Ben's story encourages you to find your own path in life, forge your own future, and live a life with no regrets.  We regret the things that we didn't do more than the things that we did when we grow old.  You can checkout Ben on Instagram @btek_benchung and his dance group @kinjaz on Instagram!
