The Buzz 1: “NFTs are not just for digital art—and their popularity is growing. Now The Economist is experimenting with an NFT, to raise money for a good cause. – One candidate for the Oxford English Dictionary's “Word of the Year” for 2021 will surely be “NFT”. Non-fungible tokens—cryptocurrency chits which represent digital images or videos—have been around since 2014, but took off in popularity in March  when Christie's, a British auction house, sold an NFT of “Everydays—The First 5,000 Days”, art by Mike Winkelmann, for a cool $69m.…On October 25, The Economist will auction off the cover of our issue from September 18: Alice in Wonderland embarking on a journey into the world of decentralised finance (DeFi)—in which NFTs form part of the foundation of the digital economy.” [economist.com] The Buzz 2: “Like it or not, the music industry has embraced NFTs …In March 2021, the album heralded as the first to be released as a non-fungible token was Kings of Leon's barrel-scraping When You See Yourself—and people who bought the shiny new digital widget got their actual copies of the record as old-fashioned MP3s and vinyl records. Snoop Dogg announced his newly acquired Death Row Records, a hip-hop brand venerable enough for the Super Bowl halftime show, would become the first NFT label. [pitchfork.com] The Buzz 3: “Sotheby's offers a curated array of NFT's from Digital Art, Luxury, Collectibles, Sports and Pop Culture…In 2021, records were broken: the most expensive Bored Ape Yacht Club ever sold in October 2021 for $3.4M…the second most expensive Cryptopunk ever sold achieved $11.7M.” [sothebys.com] Within the next couple of years, some of our favorite establishments or even community groups might start to implement this technology to better interact with us. What kinds of new possibilities will be created with NFTs for both the creator and us, the consumer? We'll ask Connor Borrego, Amina Touati and James Shannon for their take on The Future of Your Digital Identity: All About The NFTs?

Cass is a modern soul singer with a sound that embodies old-school cool with bold sexy optimism. Her sound takes its cue from a vintage sonic swagger a-la Amy Winehouse, but she'd be just as much at home drinking martinis with Andra Day, Brittany Howard and Nancy Sinatra at her favourite lounge bar in LA.Cass's soul-leaning, sun-seeking songs remind you that if the champagne glass isn't already full,then it's at least half-full (and definitely never empty). Her signature chocolate-coated vocals are drenched in a feel-good vibe, and her megawatt smile and natural charisma draw you in with gravitational force.It isn't just Cass' new single “The Way I Feel About You” and its crowd-sourced video that have captured the imagination of her fans and industry. Cass's acclaimed last single “Ain't No Stopping Me '' hit over 1.7M streams on a recent US Hyundai commercial. Her music has also been featured on a US McDonalds ad, as well as multiple TV shows on Amazon Prime, Nine Network, and the E channel. So strap up your seatbelts, and let's take a ride to Australia by way of LA California on this episode of the dHarmic Evolution podcast. As a Preview In this episode, we have soulful singer Cass Eager discuss her two latest singles and a behind the scenes of “the way I feel about you”.

What items should you go over when you're talking to a self storage broker? How to present an offer? Kathryn East has several years experience in the self storage space, she is the Founder of Sopapta Consulting, Management & Auditing, and shares her knowledge. You can read this entire episode here: bit.ly/3dHeNiR How do you present an offer that is 30% below what they are asking for? You explain how you came up with this number based on what they told you, for instance, you are trying to sell it to me at 85% occupied, but your economic occupancy is 60%. I am not going to pay you for what you didn't do with that facility. So we're going to go with your 60% economic occupancy, which means it's worth $1.7M, not $2.4. If it's an experienced self storage broker, they will generally come back with “I absolutely understand what you are saying, however, this facility is not using the right kind of website, they're not really promoting themselves very well. There's delinquency that you could clear up”. Then your answer is "Okay, you said it right there for me, I have to do it. Why would I pay your client for what they did not do?". Or they will say “I've done a market research on this property, as you can see in my OM, based on my pro forma numbers in year one, and you could bring it to this value, which means it'll actually exceed the purchase price in year one”. I will then say, Great, why didn't you have your client do that? If you are going to sell this property at a price point that's less than if you would have instructed that client to do what you state that they can do – why are you selling it? You're selling it short and ultimately affecting your client. Obviously, they can project numbers, it's like having a crystal ball in your hand. Sometimes that's what it feels like when they're projecting exit strategies of three to five years from now. Do I know what cap rates or interest rates are going to be in three to five years? Of course not, all I know is this asset class is in a cycle. We were at the top of that cycle six months ago and now we're going back down, and at some point we're going back up. After I have said to the broker “If you know it can do this, why not instruct your client to do that, and re-list it after six months of implementing your ideas that created this pro forma"? And they answer, Because they want to sell it now. Fair enough, then the now price is $1.7M. Brokers are actually really nice, I have never felt disrespected or been disrespected by them. If they're not a self storage broker, your goal is not to offend them with your underwriting, it's to educate them. It's a give and take relationship when you are a buyer versus a seller. That's what we're looking at. I wish I could say that there is this long process about underwriting, and learning it does takes time, it might take you three hours to underwrite something to where you feel comfortable with writing an LOI, and that can take me 20 minutes, but I have been doing this for many years. I have perfected the way I am looking at it, but to be clear, I learn new things every single day about the underwriting process. Broker OM's make it easier because they have done a lot of the legwork for you. Just reading that offering memorandum, looking at pictures, getting a good visual identity of what that property looks like currently, that's all it's about. Trust but verify, no matter how you are looking at it.

Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has accused an unauthorized television drama of stealing his life story, comparing the streaming platform behind the upcoming series to a "slave master." "Mike," which premieres on U.S. streamer Hulu August 25, is a scripted drama that re-enacts moments from the controversial fighter's life, from his early childhood and through his 1992 rape conviction.

Vance Lee is the Co-founder of Playground Theory, an agency that provides a product launch system for brands looking to scale. He is an ecommerce entrepreneur with 13 years of experience as a brand growth and marketing strategist. Since starting with Amazon FBA in 2015, Vance has mastered crowdfunding and the preorder launch strategy to launch products and grow brands. He has raised over $7M in successful launches and broken records with two of his launches — both classified #1 most-funded in their niches and ranking in the top 1% of crowdfunding projects. In this episode… When launching a campaign, many brands lack an effective strategy and fail to plan accordingly. So, what are some strategies you can leverage to launch your products and scale your brand? Vance Lee recommends leveraging Kickstarter to generate a launch campaign. To maximize the platform's effectiveness, it's essential to develop a unique brand story that captivates your target audience. Next, utilize your campaign to build a community among your audience and involve them in the product launch. With Kickstarter, you don't need to order inventory before developing a campaign. The platform's crowdfunding model allows you to scale your brand instantly. In today's episode of the eCommerce Profits Podcast, Joshua Chin talks with Vance Lee, Co-founder of Playground Theory, about launching a profitable brand. Vance shares how to launch a product and scale your brand on Kickstarter, common mistakes brands make when launching their products, and crowdfunding strategies for developing customer relationships.

Plot:https://moviepooper.com/movie/balls-out-gary-the-tennis-coach/Lincoln West High gets to the state tennis finals against Southpoint High, and Mike (Brando Eaton) gets matched up against Southpoint's star player Tommy Tremble (Joseph Dwyer) to determine which school will walk away with the championship.Mike wins the first set, and Tommy wins the second. During the fifteen-minute break before the final set, Mike gets another verbal beatdown from his father for playing shoddily during the second set (though that's because his legs are cramping up), and Mike finally musters up the courage to tell his father off for the first time. As the third set is underway, Mike's left knee locks up, threatening the forfeiture of the set to Tommy. As Jenny (Emilee Wallace) massages his knee, Gary (Seann William Scott) orders Chang (Justin Chon) to get the teammates to do something to motivate Mike, so they all end up doing the tomahawk chop chant, and they get the supporters of their school to join in with them. In the midst of this, the principal's daughter, Amy (Ryan Simpkins), shouts out a profanity-laden speech of encouragement. The support forces Mike to dig deep within himself and mentally shut out his pain, and then he beats Tommy to win the state title. As the team celebrates, Mike gets a handshake and a hug from his father, and he also kisses Jenny. Gary then watches as an owl lands near him, and he sees that it is actually Lew's (Randy Quaid) spirit in owl form. He tells Lew that, since he has led the team to championship glory, he doesn't know what to do next. Lew replies that, while he can't tell him what to do next, he can tell him that those boys will never forget this wonderful day. He praises Gary for being a great coach and flies away, and the team then salutes Gary. Some days later, after Gary puts the championship trophy in the school's trophy case, he finally arranges a date with Norma (Leonor Varela). He then overconfidently narrates to himself that, after he marries Norma, he should get a teaching degree, and maybe he could turn some dead-end loser into a future U.S. president. TOP 51 Despite being direct-to-DVD in the US, the film was shown in theaters in Iceland. 2 To date, the last film to feature Randy Quaid. 3 Script was discovered by the BlueCat Screenplay Competition in 2005, going on to win the top prize. Within days, BlueCat sent screenplay to producer Peter Morgan to read. **TRIPLE LINDY AWARD** **REVIEW AND RATING** TOP 5Stephen:1 Breakfast club2 T23 Sandlot4color out of space5 Mail order brides Chris:1. sandlots2.

1) Do not raise taxes to if you want more supply. Increasing supply will help reduce prices. Democrats are moving in the opposite direction. 1A) Inflation Reduction Act - Sen. Sinema holds the cards. Dave details the problems with the bill. 1B) This follows the CHIPS Act which passed the senate with the goal of bringing chip manufacturing back to the U.S. 2) Oil drops as weak Chinese factory data heightens demand concerns and property slumps. Gasoline prices drop for the last 45 days 2A) 2 Year Notes are prices 30 basis points higher than 10 year notes 3.00% - 2.7%. Is this an indicator of a future recession? Or a current recession? 3) Home prices cooled at a record pace in June as demand falls and supply builds. This is the biggest drop since the 2007-2009 period. It would take 6 more months of drops to bring the market back to normal conditions Rising interest rates currently around 5% and Inflation are leading the slide The Median price is now $416K 4) Americans wages are not keeping up with Inflation costing the average family an extra $460 per month. 76% of Americans are concerned about Inflation and 60% are worried about making rent and mortgage payments. 35% of Americans rent instead of own and the average rent is now $2,000 per month. 72% have not saved enough for retirement 5) How did Government student debt projections go from a profit of $114B to a projected loss of $197B? Easy answer - If the policy is to defer payments way too long and not accrue interest, you have a blow up. If Biden forgives $10K per student, it will cost the government $321B. The total student debt now stands at a whopping $1.7T an average of $30K per borrower. 6) Job openings fell to 10.7M in July from 11.1M in June 7) Federal Reserve to raise Balance Sheet run off to $95B in September. The Balance sheet is currently at $9T.
I invited Lee Anne Grant, Chief Growth Officer at babylist, onto the show and we unpacked some very cool stuff happening at their startup. Prior to babylist, Lee Anne held sales roles at Google, AOL, POPSUGAR and Brandless. Babylist was founded in 2011, has 212 people, and is based out of CA (also remote). They've raised Series C ($40.7M total). Babylist is the leading vertical marketplace and commerce destination for baby, driving purchase decisions for more than 8 million people each year! Babylist is way more than a baby registry and we talk about those different revenue streams. Here's what we hit on: You've been in sales for much of your career and now you're CGO. What does that mean, what are you in charge of, and how does that impact how you lead; Babylist is a commerce company that has a media business - tell me more about how this works and how that affects your marketing decisions (HINT: having 3 revenue streams is incredibly intellectually interesting); Tell me more about your growth strategy during this downturn, where are you putting your dollars, what marketing channels are you leaning into; Their Halsey influencer story and how that has impacted their growth; What kinds of marketing content are you leaning into; What are the last 1-2 really good, creative marketing ideas you've come up with (HINT: in-person plays plus the metaverse); What are your top marketing challenges; Some goals you want to accomplish (personal, professional) in 2022; Lee Anne asked me a question to round out the conversation. You can reach Lee Anne on LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/leeannegrant/ Find out more about babylist: www.babylist.com For more content, subscribe to Modern Startup Marketing on Apple or Spotify or wherever you like to listen, and don't forget to leave a review! People call me (Anna) the Marie Kondo of startup marketing because I help VC backed early stage startups clean up their marketing mess to uncover more joy (and revenue). For those startups that have already built their marketing foundation and have been testing different marketing plays but just aren't satisfied with the traction they're seeing, I created the Marketing Audit + Roadmap offering. At the end of your audit, you'll get a custom Roadmap with improvement opportunities for the next 3-6 months. So that you can finally put the missing pieces in place to start seeing more traction and stop spending time and money on the wrong things.

Astra Exploration offers their shareholders leverage to the price of precious metals through exceptional discovery potentialTheir exploration jurisdiction, the Paleocene Mineral Province of Northern Chile, lies within one of the most mineral-rich regions of the world. It has significant potential to host additional precious metals deposits like Yamana's world-class El Peñón mine, which has a known total endowment of over 7M oz of gold and 207M oz of silver.
The number of successful consumer applications in the web 3 space is still few and far between. Against all odds, Audius, an open source and decentralized music discovery and community platform was somehow able to strike a chord and gain mainstream adoption. They have racked up 7M monthly listeners and 50,000 artists, including heavy hitters like deadmau5, Nas, Chainsmokers, Steve Aoki and many more. So what exactly is Audius and how were they able to gain so much traction? Initially, it looks just like any other web 2 music discovery and streaming product, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. All data on Audius is open source, which means as a developer you can take the music library and build your own unique music application.Beyond that, listener data is open as well, which means that artists can have unfettered access to their fan base and use it like a CRM. They can create fan clubs, share exclusive streams, but more critically, if a platform like Spotify or Soundcloud goes down or changes their algorithms, artists will still be able to have a direct channel to their listeners. Finally, the governance structure of the Audius community is unique and Robust. Audius the startup is just one small piece of the entire ecosystem. There is also an Audius token, which is managed by the Audius Foundation, and stimulates the economic activities and incentives of the ecosystem. Finally, contribution and decision making is all done by the community in a decentralized manner.ABOUT THE GUESTRoneil Rumburg is co-founder and CEO of Audius, a digital streaming service that connects fans directly with artists and exclusive new music. Audius is fully decentralized, owned and run by a vibrant, open-source community of artists, fans, and developers all around the world. Founded in early 2018, Audius serves millions of users every month, making it one of the largest crypto applications ever built.Prior to Audius, Roneil most recently co-founded Kleiner Perkins' early-stage seed fund, KPCB Edge. At KP, he was responsible for seed investments into Blockchain and AI companies, including Lightning Labs. Roneil attended Stanford University and previously co-founded a Bitcoin peer to peer payment company called Backslash.SHOW NOTES[2:45] Audius' role in disrupting the music industry[6:45] Components of Audius platform (listeners, artists, network contributor)[10:35] What does it mean to be the CRM for artists' fanbase[15:00] How artists use Audius vs. other platforms[19:55] Enabling 3P developers to build new listening clients[23:05] Key drivers of growth[26:15] Distributed vs. centralized listening experience[30:25] Governance structure of Audius network[33:45] Role of CEO for a decentralized network[37:45] What it means run a ‘startup' that has no concept of existing or having an IPO
