Finding Success + Community as an NFT Artist
Looking for your next big creative opportunity?

Betting on yourself, your creativity, and your future is scary AF.

You have to dive into the unknown without knowing the end outcome: that’s where opportunities and community live.

That’s the story of today’s guest—Justin Mezzell—a modern-day savant in the realms of illustration, digital art, UI/UX design, and copywriting.

He’s also one of the ring leaders and the artist behind the rapidly growing Grim Syndicate NFT community.

But it’s Justin’s story, perspective, empathy, humor, and drive that you’re going to love today. He’s carved out his own lane to success all outside of a full-time day job and being a family man to a wickedly supportive wife and 3 kiddos.

In this episode, we talk shop on opportunities for creators in the NFT space, community building, experimenting, crypto, and all-out focus for a season.

My goal with this episode is to show you how trusting the process and rooting your work in play will lead to your big break one day if you stick with it.
