Lorella's passion for wedding and event planning, as well as her entrepreneurial mindset, naturally led her to start her first company, La Jolie Bride, a bridal concierge service. She wanted to help every bride-to-be enjoy their moment in a stress-free, beautiful and magical way, all while offering her French touch, to their most romantic event. Working with many brides over time, made her realize that one of their biggest struggles was to find accessories to go with their bridal look. Where to look? Will it match my dress? What will go well together? how many accessories are too many? Keeping all these concerns in mind, she decided to create a high end bridal accessories rental platform to help brides perfect their look in an effortless way. In addition, Lorella believes you can have a big wedding without having a big impact on the environment. She works with brands that share her values and with brides that find it more fun to rent rather than buy.   Lorella graduated from one of the world's leading international hospitality management school, Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2014 and gained experience at international companies such as W hotels, Publicis Live, Sotheby's and Pictet & Cie SA, a Swiss private bank, where she was a marketing manager. She has organized exclusive events around the globe for ultra-high net-worth individuals and leading entrepreneurs. Her vast experience in hospitality, marketing and event management, have equipped her with a knowledge and expertise that make working in the wedding industry seamless.  Featured Guest: Lorella Othenin-Girard of Borrowed by La Jolie Bride and La Jolie Bride Website: https://borrowedbyljb.com, https://lajoliebride.com Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/borrowedbyljb https://www.instagram.com/la_jolie_bride  As a special offer for our confetti hour listeners -- you can get 15% off all orders made in 2022 on Borrowed by La Jolie Bride with promo code 'CONFETTI22' -- Help support Renée and The Confetti Hour show with a small contribution of $3 per month or yearly contribution to the show.

She's also been lucky enough to work with some of these designers, helping them refine their brands and create stories that resonate with customers. She joined the Jewelry Journey Podcast to talk about what designers and retailers should do to stay relevant with younger consumers, how art jewelry has influenced high jewelry, and what jewelry trends to watch out for in the coming months. Read the episode transcript here.  Sharon: When you say you like strong, new collections, what catches your eye when somebody's presenting a new collection to you or sends you a press kit or email? Amy: Every time I'm ever interviewed for something, I always say this, but photos are so important, beautiful, beautiful photos. Whatever budget you have, use it for the photography. I love glamorous jewelry. I love high jewelry. I love glamor, big, bold, extremely extravagant jewels; from an editorial standpoint, I love them. I love to excite the senses with beautiful jewelry that makes you stop in your tracks. So, the jewels have to be beautiful, and you need to have beautiful photos to accurately portray that. It's just a strong point of view.  Boucheron came to me, and they have a whole series inspired by a cat that belonged to the Maison Boucheron early on in their life. His name is Vladimir, and it's a whole collection that takes this Persian cat with his swept fur. There's a story there; there's a heritage story. I love that. I love to take a new collection and look back at how it came to be. I love figuring out what a designer's signature is, whether they're well-established or they're just coming out. Every once in a while you'll find a newcomer with a strong point of view and you're like, “I've never seen this before. I'm so excited to tell that story.” Sharon: I think it's so important to say or to reiterate that for everybody, no matter what kind of jewelry you're selling, whether it's fine jewelry or antique jewelry. I'm thinking of some of the tradeshows when I've talked to dealers and they're like, “Oh, I don't have the money for photos.”  Amy: I don't know what to say. I've been saying it for 20 years and it's still a problem. There are some designers that are really overexposed and there are some that are underexposed. I'm always excited to discover somebody I'm not following on Instagram. How exciting! A lot of times, they're international. I'm connected with a PR firm in Paris right now. They've been calling me a lot, and it's a goldmine of designers that don't get featured a lot over here. I think I'm the only editor at JCK that covers estate and antique jewelry. I'm always covering auctions and exhibitions in that vein and all of the art fairs. I've written about Sienna Patti up in the Berkshires several times. It really is a pleasure, and anything goes. I have an action-packed calendar for the holidays. Sharon: It sounds like it, yes. Sienna Patti, I know she's in the western part of Massachusetts.  Amy: Yes, she's in the Berkshires. Sharon: She has an art jewelry gallery I'd love to get to someday. How does art jewelry fit in here? Does it catch your eye if the right photos are sent to you? Do you see it taking more of the market or having a higher profile? Amy: It's interesting. The one thing I will say, and it's so hard to speak in terms of trends when you're dealing with very expensive, high-end, collectible jewelry, but what I have noticed a little bit of is the selling of sweet sets, something that might be convertible, a multipiece set. Christopher Thompson Royds does that. You get a beautiful box, and then it's an earring that can be worn three or four different ways. Annoushka did a collaboration with Fuli Gemstones. Beautiful, bright green peridot like you've never seen. It was not really a collection; it was an eight-piece set. That is what the customer is being asked to buy into, and that feels very collector, very connoisseur, a very specific kind of angle. It's a very specific customer that is going to want to invest in jewelry that can be worn but is presented as an art object or sculpture or something to display in your home as sculpture, but then you can take it out and wear it. I see that as a direction with very, very high-end jewelry that's being shown in galleries, this notion of buying a boxed set. Sharon: When you said sweet sets, I was thinking edible sweets. That's interesting. Amy: Sets of jewels.  Sharon: There's an idea. Tell us who the emerging, independent designers are today. Who should we keep our eye on? Who's overlooked? Who's being so creative, knocking it out of the park, but you don't hear talked about? Who's collectible? Amy: I know this is a very informed and qualified audience, Sharon, so I'm sure these names are going to be familiar to many in your audience, but I think the industry has collectively embraced the work of Harwell Godfrey. Sharon: Now, that's one I don't know.  Amy: Lauren Harwell, I think she's based in LA, and she has a strong point of view. It's beautiful inlaid jewels, weighty, substantial, geometric, absolutely a strong point of view, Sharon. Sharon: I see her on Instagram a lot.  Amy: Yes, Harwell Godfrey is probably one of the strongest voices to emerge in the pandemic era. Before that it was Anna Courey, absolutely with her diamond ear cuffs. I think she set us on a course with that. Glenn Spiro is an under-the-radar but highly, highly couture jeweler. There's a book out from Assouline on him that Jill Newman wrote. I think his name is going to become more well-known among collectors. He's a private jeweler based in London, I believe, and I think we're going to be hearing more about that. Anytime there's a book or an auction, the names are elevated; the names are surfaced and get a little more traction, so I definitely would be watching Glenn Spiro. Nikos Koulis has been around for the last three or four years. He's Greek, and it's sort of neo-Art Deco, very geometric, very strong uses of color, edgy, really modern. Bea Bongiasca with her enamel and ceramic pieces— Sharon: How do you say that? Is she here? Amy: Bea. I think she's based in London but is Italian. She works at Central St. Martin's. Alice Cicolini, also British, does extremely beautiful work with enamel. I think her work is going to be really collectable in the coming years. I think she has a strong point of view. Sharon: Can I interrupt? What does that mean, a strong point of view? What does that mean to you? Amy: It means singular and inimitable.  Sharon: You know it's her when you see the piece of work. Amy: Yes. It's very singular and striking and absolutely inimitable. There's a lot of borrowing of ideas that goes on in the jewelry industry. I think the people I'm mentioning here, their voices present themselves to me as something unique. You can't replicate it; you're not going to see that show up in some form on Amazon. Maggi Simpkins, we all fell in love with her in the Brilliant and Black exhibit at Sotheby's. She did the most beautiful pink diamond ring. Everything is centered in these fan-like, feathered cocoons of gems. It's very feminine and lavish and beautiful. So, Maggi Simpkins is someone, and then Studio Renn. My editor at JCK, Victoria Gomelsky, writes for the New York Times and she did a piece on them. She really has seen everything. They are part of an exhibit that is now ongoing at Phillips that Vivienne Becker curated. I think Studio Renn is a newcomer that is going to be sticking around for a while. Finally, there's Fabio Salini, who's also part of the Vivienne Becker capsule at Phillips. Those are just a few. It changes all the time, but the pandemic era has brought incredible work from the designers in our industry, and they are just now hitting their stride. After all that time creating and dreaming and ruminating, refining their voices, cultivating their Instagram audiences, getting feedback from buyers—now they're out there in the world and ready to be embraced.  Sharon: What about pre-pandemic? Everybody's at home in their living room thinking and designing, so I could understand why it's emerging right now, but what about pre-pandemic? Do you see a big difference? Amy: Yes, the industry has modernized considerably since the before times. The biggest difference is that a mom-and-pop jeweler in the middle of country who had a website but never updated it, they've gone in there, hired a firm, hired a chat bot, completely modernized. The pandemic era forced the industry to fast-track into the digital age. That is a huge, huge difference, making it so you are available to your customers, wherever they may be, whether that's texting or someone dedicated to Instagram inquiries. A lot of this is being done on Instagram now, and that was not true in January 2020. Since jewelry emerged as a category that is a portable asset, it's not a flash in the plan; it has staying power. It's not like buying a trendy handbag, but using your discretionary income to buy jewelry became a thing and was embraced a lot of people during the pandemic as they were sparkle scrolling, as they call it, on their phones. Sharon: I haven't heard that term.  Amy: A lot of people used the time to upgrade their engagement rings and wedding bands, so the bridal industry saw a huge boost. The jewelry industry is really healthy right now, I think, in terms of sales, but what I have noticed is not everybody has a wedding band. Not everyone has a budget to upgrade to a big, giant, 20-carat eternity band, so I'm noticing a lot of brands creating price points under $1,500. They're creating little capsules, creating diffusion lines, if you will, so a customer with modest means can have that same meaningful purchase, that same, “I'm investing and treating myself to something that will last, my first diamond bracelet or my first diamond pendant.” I'm seeing more of those opportunities at the retail level. Sharon: That's interesting. In terms of the emerging designers you've mentioned, is this trickling down to the rest of us who don't have $15,000 to go out and buy a trinket tomorrow? Amy: There's definitely a spectrum. I think estate jewelry in general is so hot, and there are a gazillion ladies on Instagram. They're moving delicate, little gold charms for $200 a pop. There's so much. I hate the term low-hanging fruit, but there is so much attainable luxury out there at the regular-person level. If you're the type to spend $200 on a bunch of drinks on a Saturday night, you can easily do that and buy yourself a beautiful paper clip chain estate piece on someone's Instagram feed.  Also, even further than the art jewelry investment piece, there's a run on pink diamonds, practically, and yellow diamonds were a big story coming out of JCK. That color, yellow, that bright, hopeful, joyful feeling that yellow presents, suppliers and manufacturers—cases were filled with yellow diamond engagement rings. A lot of people are talking about a potential uptick in yellow diamond engagement ring sales, both from the rarity of the investment angle and from the pure joy of it, the feeling that it gives. Also, there's this idea that today's young woman getting engaged doesn't want anything to do with what her mother had. Any ring that remoted resembles that chunky, big, platinum, three-stone diamond ring from 1990, she wants something completely new and different feeling, and yellow diamonds fulfill that. They check that box. I have heard from some of my diamond tiara friends that people are buying very high-end and special loose, fancy-colored diamonds from an investment standpoint because it's a portable asset and they are decreasing in supply. Like I said, there's a whole spectrum of possibilities. Sharon: It's interesting you mention that diamonds are not so much in demand for young women getting engaged or getting married today. Sometimes I look at my diamond wedding ring, which is actually an upgrade from my first one, and I look at it and go, “This looks really dated.” What are you seeing in terms of what's more contemporary or modern? Amy: Here's what everyone's doing. Everyone is taking their old jewelry and up-cycling it, whether their old engagement ring, in your case, or they're taking their grandmother's engagement ring that was given to them and creating a whole new design and style. Heirloom stones are recast as something new and wearable. It could be an engagement ring; they could be breaking apart a clustered diamond pin and creating a “diamonds by the yard” style necklace. That is a huge trend right now because it also covers sustainability. You have this precious item in your possession, but it just isn't your style. You have the materials to work with a designer to make it something new you can wear and enjoy. I feel like every independent designer I speak with nowadays has taken on commissions along those lines. Entire businesses are being built around that very concept of reimagining old jewelry. Sharon: What about non-diamond wedding rings or engagement rings? Are other stones being used besides yellow diamonds?  Amy: I think we can anticipate a sapphire—I hate to say a sapphire boom because jewelry is slow and static, but blue sapphires. The Crown season four, I think, came out last winter, and it centered around Diana. There's a whole generation of young women out there that were not clued into that story, and that blue sapphire engagement ring from Garrard was back in the spotlight again, even though Kate Middleton wears it as hers now. Anyway, there's a whole generation of consumers for whom Diana's blue sapphire ring was not on their radar. Then there is a movie coming out with Kristen Stewart in the starring role called “Spencer” that will center on Diana. I think that's going to put the blue sapphire engagement ring on people's radar again. Honestly, any time the royals or once-were royals are in the news—and they are—it definitely trickles down into consumer appetite. Sharon: Amy, you've seen a lot from both sides of the desk. You've seen the big people; you've talked to people on the business side; you've talked to the designing side, the creative side, and I know you've written several books and things like that. If you had to distill it down into one book or a couple of paragraphs, what would you say are the main challenges? How would you advise people like this? Amy: I love to give advice. I'm solicited in other ways. To retailers, I would say listen to your customers and tune into the social climate. The customers are giving you information you need every time they set foot in your store. Ask them what they like, what they're into. There's an adversarial relationship, almost, between the younger consumers of today and the old-school jewelry retailer, and change is necessary. Try to learn and understand them. If they want a salt and pepper diamond ring and you think it's ugly, that's fine, but you still have to find it for them if you want to retain them as a customer. I think a willingness to change is vital; a willingness to modernize is vital on the part of the retailer. Diversity and inclusion and social justice is very important to the majority of young consumers. You can look at what Zales and Kay Jewelers and these mainstream guys are doing for clues; the same with Tiffany. You can look at what they're doing. That's all informed by serious market research that is telling them that today's younger consumer prioritizes diversity and inclusion, and they're watching companies to see if what they're doing aligns with their values. I'm certainly not the first person to say that, but it is critical; it's essential. To designers, I would say please use whatever discretionary funds you have, again, towards shooting your jewelry with a professional photographer. That is the most important thing. Don't worry about a campaign. Don't worry about hiring models. Literally just still-life photos and giant, big files are what you should be spending your money on. Stay true to your signature and try to be as authentic as possible, but also take advice. Just don't design in a vacuum. Look at what's out in the world and try to see where your point of view fits in. The market is saturated with a lot of same old, same old. How can you break through that? How can you break through the basic and come at it in a different way? It could be as simple as everybody knows alphabet charms are popular and wonderful and a new jewelry wardrobe essential, so what's your thought going to look like? How's your thought going to reflect who you are? What does the alphabet charm reflect for you, and what's the story? Did you see it on a poster for a 1960s Grateful Dead show? Did you go to an exhibit and see an illuminated manuscript? There are so many ways, I think, to get inspired and find your voice. Sharon: That's great. That's very good advice for both sides of the desk. Amy, thank you so much for being here today. Amy: Thank you, Sharon, it's a pleasure. I'm always happy to talk about jewelry and give my opinions. Thank you again for listening. Please leave us a rating and review so we can help others start their own jewelry journey.

Maria Kelly shares everything she's learned over the years on developing client relationships at Sotheby's and in her own consulting firm helping CEOs and bold leaders get unstuck. Find out about some key insights that will help you charge what you're worth with confidence, how to communicate effectively in your client's language and convey your value in a way that they will love, and one simple tactic that anyone can use to forge strong bonds with people and deepen their relationships.   Mo asks Maria Kelly: When did you realize that you really had to focus on business development and client relationships? Maria's career didn't begin in client-facing roles but they were usually oriented around being helping and finding solutions for people. When she moved into more managerial roles, she was overseeing people who faced the client. It wasn't until Maria went through the GrowBIG training where she realized that business development had been a part of her life the whole time, and her clients were her colleagues and the people she worked with. Everyone who went through the GrowBIG training had the lightbulb moment where they realized that they could be doing business development differently. The ones that embraced the Snowball System started seeing results almost immediately and people took notice. Maria started doing bi-weekly meetings specifically focused on business development and the various strategies of the Snowball System. The Give to Get was a particular favorite of the team. One of the keys to Maria's success with her team was in shifting them from retrospectives to thinking and planning for the future. Being proactive and changing the approach to being helpful allowed them to focus on the long-term view of their business. For small businesses, they often struggle with many of the same issues that many professional service firms do. Entrepreneurs have to be able to step back from the execution and take some time to focus on the future and growth of the business they are working in.   Mo asks Maria Kelly: What is your personal definition of business development? Business development is about creating opportunities and value for other people. Doing that together is what makes business development fun. Often, people don't see their own value and this is reflected in the general disdain for sales. You need to understand what value you bring to the table as a specialist and use that confidence in your skill to bring value to the other person. A lot comes to your presentation and how you approach the client. When you are genuine in your intent to help and you believe in your offering, it comes through in how you communicate. Email can be easily misconstrued and is a good example of how something can be taken differently depending on your language and other factors. Your client is a human being as well, and showing your human side builds connection. Listen to your client before talking. Empathy is important in understanding where they are coming from and how they want to communicate with you. To be able to communicate in all four ways of thinking, you first need to be aware of what your primary style is. From there you can be cognizant of how you communicate and be thoughtful of the other styles so you're always speaking the client's language. Maria works with already successful CEOs and helps them grow further, and how that happens is deeply connected to each individual and the obstacles they face. Maria spends a lot of time getting to know the entire business as a whole so that she can help take the blinders off of the client.   Mo asks Maria Kelly: What is your favorite science, step, or story from the GrowBIG training or Snowball System? One of the most useful things Maria learned from the GrowBIG training was the seven pricing principles. Living in Switzerland, she grew up in a culture that didn't talk about money and she learned early on in her career that if she didn't talk about money, she didn't get the money. Many business owners and professionals struggle with asking for what they are worth. When clients push back on the fees, those people don't know how to respond because they don't know how to articulate their value and justify their price. There are seven common heuristic programs that people use when thinking about money. One of the most common is that your price is directly linked to the quality of your service. In other words, expensive equals good, and cheap equals bad. If you're upfront with the value you are bringing to the table and anchoring to that, no one is going to second guess what you charge. With the idea of anchoring on value, you can talk about the result and the magnitude of the value of it and use that as a frame for whatever your fees are. Introduce early on what value you are bringing to the relationship, and your fees will seem small in comparison. Most people expect to pay for a service, but when it comes to ourselves we often make assumptions about what other people will think about our own services to others. If someone is hiring you, they want the best. You have to lean into and be confident with your fees. At the point you talk about the fees, if you have built up enough value and trust with the person, you will be more confident in your delivery. It's not about sticking with the number no matter what, it's about working together to find a solution and a price that fits all parties. Even if you can't find an alternative, do your best to part on good terms. If you can talk about the money with the same excitement and tone that you discuss the team, the scope of the project, and the details, you will feel consistent and confident and get better results.   Mo asks Maria Kelly: Tell us of a business development moment that you are really proud of. One of Maria's first clients, when she ventured out on her own, was someone she had worked with in the past. This client reached out to her specifically to work with her one on one just as Maria was taking some time off. For years, Maria had been telling her team and her clients that they need to charge what they're worth so when it came to pricing her services she knew she had to follow her own advice. What's the worst that can happen when you ask for what you're worth? In the worst-case scenario, they say it's too expensive and there's room to negotiate. If Maria hadn't risked asking for what she was worth, she could have been stuck with the negative emotions associated with being undervalued and the fee scale of her first client.   Mo asks Maria Kelly: If you could record a video around business development and give it to your younger self, what would it say? The short answer would be to record Mo's training. The longer answer is to start thinking about business development much earlier. Do not be afraid to reach out and ask for advice. Over the last 12 months, Maria has read so many books that would have helped her tremendously when she was younger. Highly skilled specialists often struggle with asking for advice, but it's one of the most powerful things you can do to create bonds with people. The more you communicate, the more things come your way. Asking people for advice makes people feel good, and other things can come up during the conversation that can change the way you think. One of the ways that Maria had built relationships with clients was by asking them their advice on who she should hire and they loved the idea of having input. The worst that can happen is that the other person will thank you for thinking of them but they're too busy to help. Start with something small that doesn't require too much of the other person, or by asking someone you are fairly confident will say yes no matter what. When you're trying a new skill, start small and start safe. If you have a business strategy that you aren't sure of, reach out to your clients and run it by them first. It shows that you value them as a client and their opinion on what you do. There are a lot more opportunities than you think that don't fit into the traditional client opportunity conversation box. Just being human is a simple thing anyone can do. Unstructured moments used to happen naturally in the past, but it's okay to go out of your way to try and create more of those moments. Business development is a learnable skill, and the sooner you embrace it the more it will impact your career. Embrace who you are and bring that to the business development table, because that is your strongest tool. Your authentic self is the foundation for all the other business development skills.     Mentioned in this Episode: GrowBIGPlaybook.com askmariakelly.com Maria Kelly on LinkedIn

The more you communicate, the more things come your way. Asking people for advice makes people feel good, and other things can come up during the conversation that can change the way you think. One of the ways that Maria had built relationships with clients was by asking them their advice on who she should hire and they loved the idea of having input. The worst that can happen is that the other person will thank you for thinking of them but they're too busy to help. Start with something small that doesn't require too much of the other person, or by asking someone you are fairly confident will say yes no matter what. When you're trying a new skill, start small and start safe. If you have a business strategy that you aren't sure of, reach out to your clients and run it by them first. It shows that you value them as a client and their opinion on what you do. There are a lot more opportunities than you think that don't fit into the traditional client opportunity conversation box. Just being human is a simple thing anyone can do. Unstructured moments used to happen naturally in the past, but it's okay to go out of your way to try and create more of those moments. Business development is a learnable skill, and the sooner you embrace it the more it will impact your career. Embrace who you are and bring that to the business development table, because that is your strongest tool. Your authentic self is the foundation for all the other business development skills.     Mentioned in this Episode: GrowBIGPlaybook.com askmariakelly.com Maria Kelly on LinkedIn

Alexander Zakharin, "Success can catch you off guard", Managing Director at Avenues Real Estate & TikTok Influencer shares his story on Global Luxury Real Estate Mastermind with Michael Valdes Podcast #200 Alexander Zakharin came to this country from Russia just four years ago and has built a successful real estate career primarily through the use of social media. He has over 400,000 followers on TikTok and is a true inspiration. More About Alexander Zakharin:  Alexander Zakharin came to this country from Russia just four years ago and has built a successful real estate career primarily through the use of social media. He has almost 400,000 followers on Tik Tok and is a true inspiration. He started his career in the summer of 2018 at GZB Realty (now Avenues Real Estate) after coming to New York from Russia as a rental agent, just like most other brokers. The business was going ok but the deals were so challenging to get because of running multiple ads, answering calls without having time to catch his breath, arranging access to the properties, showing properties every day to the clients, and competing with hundreds of brokers. Before the pandemic, a high-paying buyer declined a deal because of the forthcoming uncertainty, and then Alexander paused the business after the lockdown week in March 2020 to see what can be improved.  That's when Alexander decided to create a profile on the famous platform TikTok, to start showcasing properties he was in charge of renting out/selling. All of the sudden after posting beautiful apartments on TikTok, his popularity there exploded and he started getting tonnes of followers, new leads and clients. Fast forward to now, he has: - 400К+ followers on TikTok. - Closed over 150+ deals, including a $4M apartment he sold to a TikTok client and other high-priced properties. -Amazing team and the company that just opened 5 new offices in New York. https://www.tiktok.com/@alexander_zakhari?lang=en About Michael Valdes:  Michael Valdes is the President of eXp Global. He is currently the only Latino President of a publicly traded real estate company in the country (Nasdaq: EXPI). In his first year of joining, he has led a team that has opened 12 countries in 12 months without ever getting on a plane which is a feat that has never been done in the industry. This model has successfully touched the lives of thousands of people across the globe and given them an opportunity to change their lives. Michael was the former Senior Vice President of Global Servicing for Realogy Corporation. In that role he oversaw the international servicing platform for all Realogy brands including Century 21, Coldwell Banker, ERA, Better Homes & Garden, Corcoran, Climb and Sotheby's International Realty in 113 countries. He had been with Realogy in a variety of roles for 15 years. Prior to that, Mr. Valdes was Director of Private Banking at Deutsche Bank for a decade where he oversaw a book of business of just under $1 billion. He has the distinction of being the first Director in the United States of Latino descent. Mr. Valdes is the Chair of the AREAA Global Advisory Board and co-host of the 2020 AREAA Global Luxury Summit. He is also a current member of the NAHREP Corporate Board of Governors. Additionally, he is a the Executive Chair of eXp Latino and former member of the Realogy Diversity Board as well as the Executive Chair of the ONE VOZ, Hispanic ERG. He is a former Board Member of Mount Sinai Hospital in Miami Beach as well as the Shanti Organization in San Francisco. Michael was also a Board Member of Pink & Blue for 2, an organization started by Olivia Newton-John to promote breast and prostate cancer awareness.

Well, we didn't win the US Constitution…but this is going to be big. If you don't know what I'm talking about, here are the details. As you know from listening to this podcast, I've been covering quite a bit about DAOs and digital property rights for content creators. Most of the DAO (decentralized autonomous organizations) examples I've been sharing are for media companies and crypto projects. Well, here's one that really got me thinking. Last week, a group of investors and crypto enthusiasts launched ConstitutionDAO. Their goal? To buy the actual US constitution. Auction house Sotheby's auctioned it off last week. The estimated price was to go between $15 and $20 million dollars. ConstitutionDAO's goal was to purchase this version. They say: “We're buying the US Constitution. For the first time in thirty-three years, one of thirteen surviving copies of the Official Edition from the Constitutional Convention will be publicly auctioned by Sotheby's. It is the only copy that is still owned by private collectors. The proceeds from the auction will be given to a charity that has been established by the current owner.” They had all kinds of plans for it, including giving this version to the Smithsonian Institute and then working out a plan to buy more US artifacts. Crazy, right? As you probably already know, they did not win. A private investor won the bid at around $43 million dollars. Unbelievable. ConstitutionDAO raised over $40 million in about a week and came up just short. It seems the private investor who won was a billionaire and was going to win it regardless. Probably was Bezos or something. Here's what ConstititionDAO stated on their Discord page: "We did not win the bid for the copy of the U.S. constitution. While this wasn't the outcome we hoped for, we still made history tonight with ConstitutionDAO. This is the largest crowdfund for a physical object that we are aware of—crypto or fiat. We are so incredibly grateful to have done this together with you all and are still in shock that we even got this far. Sotheby's has never worked with a DAO community before. We broke records for the most money crowdfunded in less than 72 hours. We have educated an entire cohort of people around the world – from museum curators and art directors to our grandmothers asking us what eth is when they read about us in the news – about the possibilities of web3. And, on the flip side, many of you have learned about what it means to steward an asset like the U.S. constitution across museums and collections, or watched an art auction for the first time. We had 17,437 donors, with a median donation size of $206.26. A significant percentage of these donations came from wallets that were initialized for the first time." I was part of the 17,000 plus who donated. To be honest, it was all very exciting. I knew people who actually flew out to see the auction live. Just a few months ago something like this would have been impossible, but now because of the blockchain and the token, groups of people can easily come together into a real business and govern themselves. Why am I telling you all this? Start thinking of the applications. Want to keep a historical structure in your town? Start a DAO. Want to buy a minor league baseball team? Start a DAO. Want to buy a bar with all your friends? Start a DAO. Now, there are all kinds of legal landmines here because, well, we know nothing about this new legal entity. That said, THIS is what the internet was built for. Now groups of people can more easily pool resources, own things, and self-govern. And maybe the best part about this, is the equitable approach. The Bankless blog and newsletter just wrote this – and I paraphrase “In the Web3 environment where anonymity is welcomed and encouraged, nothing about your background can be used to prevent you from jumping into a DAO, getting to work, and earning money.  We absolutely cannot take this lightly. We have a real opportunity here: to find the human coordination solutions we have been seeking ever since humans first started walking upright. These solutions aren't just elegantly built atop code—they're our first real shot at a universally equitable work environment.  An equitable work environment is where anyone can work for what they want to achieve because everyone has the same tools to do so.  Ageism doesn't exist—want to be a governance leader at 16 or 75? Prove your talents and you're in. Geographic borders don't exist either. The DAO you want to join is halfway across the world? Come right in. The motherhood penalty—when women of childbearing years struggle to get promoted because they're a corporate “risk” if they have children—is not anywhere to be seen in a DAO. They pay and promote people based on work quality and nothing else. All right, back to me now. This IS something. We are just getting started. The token makes this possible. Do you feel like you never got to take advantage when the Internet was just getting started. Well, tokenization, and DAOs, could be bigger. If you are a content entrepreneur or content marketer, it's time to pay attention. ------- See all Content Inc episodes at the Content Inc. podcast home.
