    Tattoos Not Brands the Podcast
    Nova asks Clint what his why is. He says it’s because it’s the only thing he truly knows. As the quiet one (to watch out for) he’s hyper-observant, which goes with marketing. He gets into how there are only about 100 true brands exist, and the other outliers need to learn new marketing approaches.
    Clint talks about STL – Skills, Timing, and Luck – that have to be aligned. He also goes into certain myopic practices.
    Clint talks about the marketing mix – what he calls the “Four ‘P’s”:
    ·        Price
    ·        Product
    ·        Placement
    ·        Promotion
    Taking the mic

She goes into fast fashion, supply chain, blockchain, smart contracts, and the metaverse as a three-dimensional space and a new immersive, social environment online.
    Nova and Clint conclude by talking about the future of advertising, brands versus tattoos, and changes already here and coming soon that will impact it all.

    Art, Manifestation, and the Power of Words with Jay Bonadio

    Listen to Nova chat with Jay Bonadio, Jr.
    Jay Bonn – formerly the Unsigned Artist - has been shaking up the Orlando art sign. He started as a silk-screen artist at 15, evolving to shattered glass art. He’s added work with Bonsai more recently.
    Nova talks about meeting Jay by phone and advised him to change his identity as “The Unsigned Artist.”
    Nova asked Jay what his why is. He explains how he started taking things apart to see how they worked at a very young age. In college at Flagler College, he began to unlock what his why was, and overcoming dyslexia. He talks about friends recommending he put his drawings on shirts, leading to a men’s graphic T-shirt company called J Bon Clothing. That would lead to silk screening on larger and larger canvases.
    Jay talks about KarmaLoop, and how getting on there helped him get in with numerous local retailers. He also discusses how having to be an employer as an entrepreneur impacted his relationship with his mom – who is his rock. He talks about how running a business taught him how to help other artists with creating a business around their natural talent.
    Nova and Jay talk about getting over being frozen by self-criticism of your own work. They also talk about selfishness and teaching, as well as mentors and mentoring.
    Taking the mic
    Jay talks about how Nova recommended that he drop the persona of “the Unsigned Artist” because of the power words gave to that. Taking that cue, he asks Nova to expand upon the notion of how words give power to creation.

    Creating Impact with the Metaverse with Sharad Agarwal

    Creating Impact with the Metaverse with Sharad Agarwal

    Listen to Nova chat with Sharad Agarwal. Sharad and Nova initially connected through LinkedIn sometime in 2022. Sharad is the Chief Metaverse Officer for CyberGear (which was founded in 1996 – the first digital agency in the Middle East). He launched onlywebinars.com in 2019. CyberGear entered the metaverse in 2021. His latest ventures include the Metashapers community (metashapers.com) and metaprenuer.com (which Nova has been on). He is on the top 200 Business and Technology Innovators power list.
    Sharad explains that his slogan is, “Together we thrive.”
    He explains what his why is. Back in 1996, he got into the internet services business for the first time. He’s been a big believer in technology and that it can solve any problem on the planet (transhumanism). Sharad predicts that, like everyone having a website today (when almost nobody had one 30 years ago) everyone will have a presence in the metaverse in the near future.
    Sharad explains the Third address. First address is your home address. Second address is your URL. The third is your metaverse destination site.
    Nova and Sharad discuss the risk-taking of being in Web3 – and how it's unknown territory like entrepreneurship. They also talk about using information, words, and phrases audiences already know to help familiarize people with the new technology.
    The philosophy of Web3 is that it builds community and is shared – not held individually. They also discuss how powerful and real connections made in Web3 are. Sharad shares some exciting new technology coming.
    Pivot and take a chance.
    Taking the mic
    Sharad asks Nova what keeps her up at night? She wakes up flooded with ideas all the time. Ideas galore. What keeps her up is how does she shorten the distance from A to B related to her purpose here? She wants to empower people to take action for a more happy, more fulfilled place in life.
