Course overview

Launch and Fund Your Business Ideas with an NFT, in 3 Days

Meet Emmie 馃檵馃徏鈥嶁檧锔 - an IG creator with 25k fans, launching a swimsuit line.


Instead of funding it herself, she raises $20,000 by pre-selling her vision to 200 fans via a $100 NFT. They feel special, beta test designs and are first to purchase.


Work smart, not hard, like Emmie.

Who this NFT Strategy course is for:

01

You have at least 5k followers or email subscribers and want to monetize your growing brand.

02

You have a business, or aspire to launch one, and need funding but are unsure how to finance it.

03

You want to stop relying on Big Platforms and creating unprofitable content.

After taking this course you'll...

馃椇 Build, market and fund a business using an NFT

You will get clear instructions and easy to use tools for strategizing, pricing, marketing and launching a win-win NFT your followers will love to support.


No coding experience or prior NFT knowledge required.

馃 Build a better business, faster

Convert your audience into a micro community that's not just giving you money. With a strategic NFT drop, holders become beta testers, advocates and first customers, all before you even launch.

馃搱 Reward your audience in new ways

Your followers will benefit from your success by being able to resell their NFT in the future. This early proof of support is also immortalized on the blockchain for all to see.

馃挵 Risk $0 personal capital

From merchandising to starting your own startup, this NFT will serve as your own mini-Kickstarter.


It enables you to fund a big vision, presell product and beta test with an invested audience without spending a dollar.

馃帣Brand yourself as a thought leader

By funding and marketing your business with an NFT before anyone else you'll be an innovator within the creator community, branded as business savvy and perhaps become a go-to-resource in your niche.

馃彉 Access a community of creator entrepreneurs

You'll have access to your cohort during and after the course - ask questions and build with the ongoing support of a community that's winning together.

馃弫 Have the first mover advantage

First to Instagram, YouTube, TikTok...the list goes on. Being first as a creator leads to outsized advantages and using NFTs as a funding vehicle first is no different - it works.

馃拫 Attract better brand deals

You'll have more appeal to brands and sponsors after you've launched a successful business, created a community of invested super fans and show a track record for innovation.

The difference between being early and being late is winning easily and struggling endlessly - just look at the first creators on TikTok or the first entrepreneurs in blockchain.


I've been early to three emerging industries - cannabis, psychedelics and web3 - and have launched three startups (one I took public at age 28), successfully invented six first-of-their-kind products and have been featured in publications like Forbes.


I鈥檒l teach you how to grow a business by being first to NFTs as a funding vehicle.


Regardless of your platform or content niche, if you鈥檙e a creator with an entrepreneurial drive and an existing audience, this course is for you.
