Back to work vibes are in the air this week nationwide. I love this time of year. For the next few months, everyone is off the beach, out of their shell, and looking to finish the year as strong as possible. The bell for the 4th quarter is about to ring true.
My nomadic Summer has been filled with wonder, but I’m glad to be back in Miami for the Fall. This is a city that feels like it’s already in the year 2025. It’s no longer just the “Vegas of the Caribbean” or the “Capital of Latin America.” Miami is the future being built in real time, replete with excitement, culture, and opportunity. It’s the melting pot that’s heating up the most.
I’m excited to be leading a conversation about the culture of Miami at Brandweek next week. When it comes to brand marketing, Brandweek is always one of my favorite events. The team at Adweek has been building this gem of a platform for a few years and they always bring in big stars and bright minds. Shoutout to Lauryn Hill, Swizz Beatz, and, this year… Pharrell!
It’s the first year the event has been held in Miami and it will unquestionably be a power-packed lineup. My discussion is on Web3 / Metaverse day (what else is new!), which is next Friday, September 15th. My literal neighbors – the brilliant investor, Magdalena Kala, and the prolific Web3 brand marketer, Avery Akkineni – will be joining me panelside. Expect a lot of insight as we set our scopes on Miami’s Web3 & brand marketing movement.
If you’ll be in Miami and would like to join, we’re offering a 20% discount with code JOINME20via this link. I’ll be in the mix all week.
Speaking of the Metaverse (and beyond), I’m excited to announce that Metropolis World’s passport mint goes live today and I can offer you allowlist access to mint yours starting at 3pm EST by going to the site here and using our unique code: nue1 (when you enter site, you will be prompted to enter the code in order to mint your passport). Beats + Bytes is unveiling its own property/nft in one of the capital cities of Celeste and we are thrilled to be founding citizens along with some web3 all-stars. It’s my dream club that’s part tennis club, part speakeasy, part intimate music hall with a bodega-vibe shop to sell products. Expect panels, parties, drops and Meta-matches, too! See ya there!
Lastly, I’m proud to be quoted in the new book by Entrepreneur Magazine EIC, Jason Feifer that dropped this week. He is a wealth of information who cares deeply about ushering in great builders. I love our chats and I’m glad one of them is memorialized in these pages. Pick up your copy here.
