Richard Carthon: Welcome to another episode of crypto current your host here, Richard Carthon and I have a special guest all the way out in New York, working on a ton of cool projects, namely an energy project called Ship Bangers. We have Peter Hurley. How are you doing today?
00:01:27:06 – 00:01:31:02
Peter Hurley: Hey Richard, how are you? I’m good. I got up early. We’re here, I’m doing it.
00:01:31:16 – 00:01:52:27
Richard Carthon: Hey, early Bird gets the worm, and I’m glad you’re able to join me on this. And really, man, you have a ton of background in photography and art, and it’s only fitting that you brought that energy into what your energy projects with the ship bangers, and I’m excited to learn more about that. But before we do that, people want to learn more about you. Can you give us some background on yourself?
00:01:53:13 – 00:02:23:24
Peter Hurley: Sure, I I picked up a camera. I’m my name’s Peter Hurley. I’m from New York City. I have a studio here. I shoot portraits. A portrait photographer picked up a camera when I was 30. I was after, I guess, the long story as I was training for the Olympics. And while I was doing that, I raced sailboats. I got in front of a camera and I was modeling for Polo and Abercrombie and all these different brands and the photographers that pick up a camera. And I was like, I was the model, actor, bartender, dude who couldn’t rub two nickels together. Really, I was like, I gotta make some money.
00:02:23:26 – 00:03:00:06
Peter Hurley: I’m picking up a camera and here I am. Like 20 years later. And now, you know, the landscape of everything is changing. My portrait photography is take me around the world, and I run the largest group of headshot specialists in the world called headshot crew, which is my brand. But but that’s what it was. And then all of a sudden in the last year, this NAFTA thing pops up and I’m like, What is going on? What the hell is Gary squawking about every day? And I was like, So I listen to him and I was like, and then one of my buddies was like, Hey, we got to, you know, there’s the photo community needs needs this.
00:03:00:08 – 00:03:22:10
Peter Hurley: We got to get in on this. I think as artists, it’s such a huge thing, right? It’s and I’m trying to tell that, I mean, to be on the forefront of something and it have something new come in that makes such an impact for people is rare, right? I mean, this NFT business is crazy. So to the learning curve, steep for me and everybody else, I guess.
00:03:24:00 – 00:03:56:02
Peter Hurley: But the difference is so, so being a photographer like I photograph people. So if a person gets in front of my camera like I’m going to photograph them for their personal brand, I’m not going to be like, Hey, like, maybe I can see you sell you as an NFT. That’s just a little weird, right? Unless they’re a big celebrity and I agree on a with them ahead of time, which I’ve done already. Well, there we’re going to sell some NFT with some people that I photograph, which is really cool. But this idea came as Wait a minute, I’m a portrait photographer.
00:03:56:04 – 00:04:26:16
Peter Hurley: Maybe I’ll work into some of my special virtues are shoot portraits specifically to be sold as NFTs, which I think the the community needs. Like, there are artists out there, the photographers like this. I’m always telling the photographers that I coached that we need multiple sources of income, and here’s one that just landed in our lap. It’s like, you know, you got to get involved. So I’ve been on the phone with sponsors and stuff working on this stuff. I could talk and talk about how exciting it is.
00:04:26:18 – 00:04:33:08
Richard Carthon: But the main thing behind my project is the artwork that you see behind me. So we’re all kind of
00:04:33:10 – 00:05:09:05
Richard Carthon: like before, before we get into that. And for everyone listening, of course, on the podcast, please tune into our YouTube so you can see all the amazing things Peter is repping his shirt. He has his NFT projects behind him, some really cool visuals, so make sure you go check that out. But a couple things I don’t want to brush over really quickly. Like the fact that you were a model for all of these big name brands and you’re like, Let me get on the other side of the camera. And then over the course of 20 years, what I’ve turned that into a really big photography enterprise is awesome, and it speaks to the hustler in you, the person that saw an opportunity in a way to keep expanding a passion that kind of just came to be.
00:05:09:11 – 00:05:39:22
Richard Carthon: But even within that, you saw an opportunity to go into a new vertical, which is the NFT space. So I’m guessing the crypto blockchain NFT world is fairly new to you, which is fine. Like you kind of got into this world of as of this time of the recording in 2021 and you saw an opportunity and now you’re diving into that. And I just want to give a quick reminder to all the listeners, you’re not late to this game. You are still early into this game, you just kind of start educating yourself and find opportunities and ways to get involved.
00:05:39:28 – 00:05:53:22
Richard Carthon: And in this case, Peter found a way to do that through something that he’s passionate about through his photography. And now he’s turned that into shebang here. So Peter can kind of walk us through a little bit of how you were able to do that in what exactly is she bangers?
00:05:54:25 – 00:06:08:12
Peter Hurley: Yeah. You know, I think that you’re right, like the crypto space is so new and I had started to dabble with crypto. A little better known a bunch myself now and and I’m kind of on the edge of my seat today,
00:06:10:22 – 00:06:14:08
Richard Carthon: like the end of year end. Got to stay in a good mood today, everyone.
00:06:16:03 – 00:07:05:18
Richard Carthon: But but yeah, I I started to hear this non-fungible token thing come up and go and come across the airwaves on social and stuff like that. And I kept and I followed Gary V and then another one of my one of my clients who had photographed and asked a friend who was, actually, I have got some of his NFT, Tom bill you. I listen to those two guys. So I think it’s about absorbing content. So I’m listening to podcasts like this, like how much information can I possibly get out there? And now with Twitter spaces trying to listen in on them and get the finger on the pulse of what is going on? What’s like a flash in the pan? What’s actually going to stick around? And like, I’ve built this off my community, so the only way I could do it is because I have a community photographer first.
00:07:06:09 – 00:07:44:20
Richard Carthon: That for me, mostly Instagram, YouTube and through my head haiku coaching platform, we have nineteen thousand photographers on that alone. So I had the following to go Wait a minute, I need to take this. I have an online community. Let me take it to the next level. And then it just happened to coincide with Facebook going to meta. Like, I was like, Wait a minute, hold on. This is crazy. All of this is happening. And the co-founder of of two bangers with me VIDEO David up and he came to me and he’s a buddy of mine and has worked with me in the past.
00:07:45:08 – 00:08:18:13
Richard Carthon: He’s actually one of the photographers on my team and and I coached him for a while and then I worked closely with him. He was the one that was the he’s the he’s the brains behind the operation. I’m just I’m just the looks. So I just get out here and I talk. I’m I’m learning, I’m trying to absorb. But without him and the team that he put together, it takes a lot to be able to do something at this level, I believe. And, you know, working through all the things that we’re running into with getting these things, you know, out there, minted and on OpenSea.
00:08:18:15 – 00:08:28:04
Richard Carthon: And then and then, you know, having them, you know, people trading them and stuff like that and going in there is really interesting. So we just added all these
00:08:30:03 – 00:09:22:20
Richard Carthon: rarity traits to them and then and then utilities. So the utilities are all based on like stuff that I’ve done or am doing and and I continue. My plan is to continue to grow it through sponsors and bringing on different brands. And I’m having meetings with brands now and everybody’s like, What the heck is going on? And I’m like, I I’m Tony, and they want like the brand. Everybody knows right now. If you follow the space that brands are like, How do we get in? What do we do? And he would teach me, like I’ve had the marketing and the marketing officers at different photo brands being calling me and being like, What the heck is going on? And I was like and I was on the phone with an now for an hour yesterday with one of the most major photography brands in the world.
00:09:23:02 – 00:09:27:03
Richard Carthon: And I’m like, We’re going into the metaverse. Yes, and
00:09:27:06 – 00:10:10:07
Richard Carthon: figuring out ways to get that done. And you know, there’s there’s a lot of different parts of shipping or said, I want to go back in and re-emphasize. So there’s there’s three pieces, one, I want you to talk about the artwork itself. So for me, just looking at what I’m seeing on the screen, so it looks like we got some basically people in their bodies. You replace their heads with like different types of cameras and then they’re wearing like different types of things in their hands on different types of shoes. So a lot of really cool artistic things happening with that. So I want to spend some time just talking about the artwork. Then you talked about utilities, so if you can spend some time talking about the utility of owning one of these and one of the perks of of owning a ship banger and the third, like you said, going into the metaverse was like, what does that mean for people? And why is that the future of wear in a tease or kind of going in that direction?
00:10:11:14 – 00:10:41:24
Richard Carthon: Well, first of all, the artist is named Sergei’s, and he’s in the Ukraine. So when we decided to do this, we knew we wanted to get a project going and I knew that it wasn’t going to be my artwork. I knew that I just felt more calm, but I was like, So we found an artist. And the second I saw one of these bad boys, I was like, I’m done, I’m in and I just, he’s a trip. He’s just like, Oh my gosh, these things are so dope. I was like, People are going to love them.
00:10:41:26 – 00:11:14:01
Richard Carthon: So they’re the coolest looking photo project out there that I’ve seen. And what it is is there’s different cameras on their heads. There’s a bunch of different variations of them, and we did them randomly, obviously over with all the shots from the shirt to the pants to the shoes to the backgrounds, to the accessories and the different cameras that that for over the years. So a made up camera look like old cameras that you don’t even know existed to to ones that are currently on the market. So. And then and then they were randomized.
00:11:14:03 – 00:11:47:24
Richard Carthon: And then when we when we dropped the, you know, you just get you should banger. And then we added, we were calling it the banger in the oven. We are in there and we didn’t reveal them for a while. And then we revealed them and people got fired up. And then we just attached the utilities to them and let the cat out of the bag on those on on Christmas Day. So like four days ago. So it’s all happening and it’s pretty cool in terms of the utilities. I started with some of the things I do, so I do workshops globally.
00:11:48:22 – 00:12:21:26
Richard Carthon: I use certain products like I am a cannon explorer of light, so I shoot Cannon exclusively and the R5 is my weapon of choice. I love it. It’s just an awesome camera. So I was like, we got to give away one of those, so we gave away one of those. I designed a lighting set up with four photographers and videographers and filmmakers. With this, the company company’s called Westcott, and it’s the Peter Hurley Synik Flex kit is what it’s called. So we gave away one of those, and the guy who won it is in the Ukraine, so I got to figure out how to get that thing over there.
00:12:21:29 – 00:12:23:08
Richard Carthon: I was like, Oh my gosh,
00:12:24:25 – 00:12:57:07
Peter Hurley: I just did a workshop in. I have a studio in Burbank and I did a workshop out there and I invited anybody. The first three people, me up, who own three Shabangu or got invited to the to the workshop for free. So it’s an eight hundred dollar workshop, so they got to get in owning three shop owners. They got in for free, so they things like that. We’re going to be doing more of that. We’re going to do an annual party here in New York City that people, if you own a banger, you’ll get into. Obviously, you get entry into the metaverse and which we are building.
00:12:57:25 – 00:13:44:15
Peter Hurley: It’s a process and we’re trying to figure out. The main thing about the Metaverse for me is that I want these suckers to look really cool when they’re in there, and I want you to feel that you should be cruising around in that thing like, that’s your guy, you know? And I think that that would be cool. So we’re 3D rendering them now so that we can. And then we have to find designers that go, OK, can I can I can get you in there on that level because I don’t think the technology is there to get them to looking similar to this in a 3D model in the Metaverse. But that is the plan. And they will be, I think for me as a as a, you know, as a coach and I’m coaching photographers on a daily basis like to actually do it in the metaverse, like when you’re feeling like you’re with somebody when you’re talking like, I can’t wait to, that moment is going to be weird.
00:13:44:17 – 00:14:25:16
Peter Hurley: It’s going to be kind of cool. It’s going to be surreal, man. And especially with what’s going on now, like now, like I just got back from Europe and I was teaching a workshop in in Amsterdam, and then I had it. I was going. I went to Barcelona and sailed in the World Championship. I still raced sailboats. But but but with COVID, it was like, Am I going to get home? How the heck am I going to get to Barcelona from like I went through Heathrow to Amsterdam and they somebody on my plane had COVID and the and British Airways knew so they’d like called me every day for like 10 days straight, like to make sure I was OK and I was quarantine.
00:14:25:18 – 00:14:53:10
Peter Hurley: I was like, I’m not even in the UK. I just passed through the airport like, stop. So right now, I think everybody you know has it’s been a little bit tough last year, year to year and a half, two years on not being able to hang out with people and stuff like that, you know? So I think the metaverse coming in time, it’ll give us a little bit more. I mean, obviously it’s going to be totally different and totally strange and foreign to some people. But I think all the gamers out there get it already, right?
00:14:53:18 – 00:15:27:22
Peter Hurley: Oh yeah, it’s earlier this year, I met someone who was working on a project in the virtual world, right? And I was able to just tether it through my computer and kind of see like what one of the things that are being built almost was like, This is amazing. And the barrier to entry into like, I guess. Virtual reality has kind of been there, and because of what matters doing with Oculus and some of these other virtual reality glasses that are becoming more affordable and able to bring more people, whether it’s like having it be tailored to your computer or literally just be on your phone where you can have it.
00:15:28:11 – 00:16:05:23
Peter Hurley: It’s providing a lot more access to people who want to enter that space to have the ability and an affordable way. But the other part of it is that we’re early in the sense that, like you said, the 3D rendering and everything that’s kind of being put into the metaverse, it’s going to take some time to really get it to where it’s just, Oh my gosh, this is amazing the way I kind of like, do it in a way for the gamers out there who understand it. You know, first we had Atari, the pong that first came out and we were all the way at that point where the fire’s out. If anyone’s seen that, that’s the graphics are just insane, right? I’d say we’re we are just elevated from Atari to the very first like Nintendo.
00:16:06:15 – 00:16:38:28
Peter Hurley: Maybe a little bit past that. We’re not at Nintendo 64 quite yet, but like we’re we’re early and I think we’re going to like be able to jump to where we are in the five. Let’s call in the next five to seven years. But all the same, like it’s coming. And if you can get into the space early, the opportunities are limitless. And I think you creating this, this NFT, that’s kind of then also have a way to be merged into the metaverse. Creating your own community within that is so awesome. And you know, kudos to you for for finding this and then finding ways to like.
00:16:39:06 – 00:16:47:07
Peter Hurley: Get this going, right? There’s a reason that all these big brands are coming to asking you these questions because they’re starting to realize that this is where we’re headed.
00:16:51:01 – 00:17:18:27

00:17:23:02 – 00:18:02:18
Peter Hurley: Yeah, they need to be involved and they know. I think that. But I think it’s just happening because if you’re not, if you’re not in this, in this baby, not on Twitter and you’re not seeing an empty all over the place, you heard it in your ear from somebody and then you’re like, What the heck is that? And now it’s starting. You heard it yesterday. Now you heard it today, then you heard it. You’re going to hear it again and again and again. So I think that that’s got everybody perked up. So many people, you know, just just by me saying, I’m doing this, I have reached out and they asked me, What the Heck’s going on, you know, and it’s and it’s it’s really interesting to me.
00:18:02:23 – 00:18:20:03
Peter Hurley: But yeah, we’re early. We’re really early. Like, I mean, look, I like, we don’t even have a metaverse built yet, and I don’t know, you know what, five years from now is going to look like. Could you imagine if we’re all cruising around in a metaverse and we were having this podcast sitting next to each other, just talking like just
00:18:20:25 – 00:18:48:14
Peter Hurley: exactly right, like literally sitting in the same room and it’s going to open up a lot of doors. And the next question I kind of have for you is kind of twofold. One, what would you tell someone who is kind of on the fence about like they have some, they’re they’re an artist and they’ve thought about I’ve heard about these NFT is I’ve heard about the metaverse. I’ve been thinking about how do I get involved? What would you tell that person about some first steps they can start taking if they’re serious about exploring that possibility?
00:18:49:22 – 00:19:12:05
Peter Hurley: Well, first of all, I think every artist knows what you know, but it should have their craft down to the point where they know they have a sellable product like the artwork is going to sell itself. Like these things like, I think I’m great. I think the community is great. I’m excited about bangers and bangers. Ville is the is the world we’re creating in the metaverse. I’m going to be the mayor.
00:19:14:16 – 00:19:56:21
Peter Hurley: I’m excited about all that. But the artwork is cool. Like it all goes back to like if I and I’m not that kind of artists like I like, I said before, like, I’m not going to. I will sell some of my stuff is NFT, but I have to now. I have to think on a different level in terms of what I’m shooting and what I might sell. So everybody out there is a creator or an artist has probably has created a look and developed their craft to the point where they create something that has their stamp on it. And if that’s able to be sold, which you wouldn’t know until you get it up there anyway, probably unless you have a gallery that you know or somebody somebody is pushing your artwork for you, that would make sense.
00:19:56:23 – 00:20:27:25
Peter Hurley: But but getting it on something like foundation or, you know, you have to get it out there, you’re going to have to spend some money to mint it, to put it up on the blockchain so people could actually grab it. But, you know, and. She got to try, you know, and who knows, we’re going to be. I just think the the income stream from that is something I think the coolest thing about it is is the residual source of income from after other sales. So artists never had that before.
00:20:28:05 – 00:20:59:02
Peter Hurley: You sell, you know, I sell if I sold a portrait to somebody and they take it and go, you know, hanging on their wall and then they sold at a garage sale. I don’t know that they sold it. I don’t know where, whatever you know, it’s guys like they were arraigned. So I became this fairly fairly prevalent in this. I don’t know if my work is going to be worth more and more and more one day. But but then all of a sudden now it can be followed around on the blockchain and you can get a residual on it. Like, that’s crazy artist.
00:20:59:04 – 00:21:32:08
Peter Hurley: That’s like every photographer out there should be going what? And they need it, and you need to get your work dialed in so that you can get it up there and actually get eyeballs on it. And hopefully you’re creating something special that that people will want to own. The thing is the ownership, you know, wanting to own it like like, I think these are cool collectibles. Whether I hear the metaverse comes tomorrow or it comes in 10 years or whatever ship bangers those build or whatever, I’ll still be doing the utilities and stuff. But owning owning one of these is just cool because the artwork is cool.
00:21:32:19 – 00:22:06:17
Peter Hurley: So that’s the basis of it, you know, and I think I think that’s it. I think some of these projects out there, I’m like looking at the artwork and I’m like, like, they better have a really freakin cool community kind of sucks. I was like, you know, and when people are buying them and spending a ton of money on them. So I think that the ones that are going to last are going to be built off the community and trades in the aspects of it. And that’s why I’m going to use my my influence the best I can to keep my community flourishing and keep people fired up about these bad boys.
00:22:07:03 – 00:22:08:24
Peter Hurley: Definitely. I think, you know,
00:22:09:07 – 00:22:41:03
Richard Carthon: every project that comes out art is the thing that really draws them in. But after that is the community and the utility of being able to to own one and do that. And it sounds like you’ll have a pretty robust roadmap to get that done. So, you know, thank you for that and for everyone listening, especially this one, that’s fine. You up and go back to the studio a couple times, figure out how you can start to get these steps in place. And then I guess my follow up question to that is what do you see for the future of ship bangers and where you are ultimately trying to bring out to the market?
00:22:42:08 – 00:23:18:20
Richard Carthon: Well, I think the thing that and I and like, like we’ve talked about, Richard, we’re early. Right? I think the thing for me is that as far as I know, I’m first of the game in the photo industry to bring a collectible. Other photographers have been posting their work, but this is the first photo collectible that’s out there that I know of. And so what I’m trying to do, and I’m known as the headshot photographer and a portrait guy. But what I want to do is I want to bring the top landscape photographers still life photographers, the sports photographers, the, you know, the wedding photographer, whatever.
00:23:18:22 – 00:23:29:26
Richard Carthon: I want to bring every, every type of photo that’s that’s out there and I want to I want you bangers to kind of represent photography in a way. I mean, there is a camera on the guy’s head, you know? Yeah.
00:23:31:15 – 00:24:04:02
Richard Carthon: Yeah. So and you know, I just Shabangu has been part of my brand. I put a YouTube video out in like 2011, I think, and I yell Shabangu in it. So everybody knows me because I yell Shabangu. So that’s the only thing I was like, it’s kind of my brand. But we we were trying to figure out a name for these things. And I was like, I mean, everybody like, I’ll walk down the aisle when I travel the world and I’ll be what I was walking down the street in Paris, the guy ran out of a restaurant, yelled Shabangu at me, and I was like, Oh my gosh. So it’s like, it’s like I was driving down.
00:24:04:04 – 00:24:09:06
Richard Carthon: I was riding a bike down the street in New York City and I went by a cop and the cop goes
00:24:12:01 – 00:24:44:11
Richard Carthon: is just so. So when the team said to me, you, we got to think of a name and I was like, All right, well, it’s NFT space. It’s got to be cool. I was like, It doesn’t. Yeah, I was like, I was like, Shabangu is like this brand branded thing of mine, and I’m trying to get everybody to understand. It’s just when I get excited about a picture, I yelled Shabangu, and that was it. So I want photographers to get excited about their work and if they want to yell Shabangu, great, if they want to yell something else, whatever they want to yell, just so people get excited about what they’re doing.
00:24:44:13 – 00:25:00:04
Richard Carthon: As an artist, I get to, I like to get excited about my work. So we came up with some bangers and I was like, You know what is cooler without the E? So it’s Shabangu within a R s. So I was like, It’s just cooler, it’s shorter, it’s neat. And people seem to like it, so we’re going with it.
00:25:00:19 – 00:25:34:09
Richard Carthon: All right. Well, it’s a great way to get to it and anyone listening to this, if you somehow see Peter out here in the streets, make sure you yell out Shabangu, right? Or even Shabangu is, you know, he might even get more excited now, as you know, is his intent to play. But hey, man, this is this has been awesome. And you know, I always like to wrap up my interviews with with two fun questions, and the first one is with all the information that you have right now within, you know, building this out in the NFT space and could impart one or two pieces of wisdom when you first got started, when you first like, OK, I’m going to do this.
00:25:34:18 – 00:25:35:26
Richard Carthon: What would you have told yourself?
00:25:37:01 – 00:25:40:09
Richard Carthon: Absorbed more information like I think.
00:25:42:27 – 00:26:14:00
Richard Carthon: You know, I heard I heard Gary say this is like you heard the thing NAFTA and he’s like, he’s he made the time like that guy’s busy, you know, Gary V.. And he said he made the time to learn about NAFTA as much as he could. He spent 50 hours or something. He’s like, and I pulled an hour here in an hour there and an hour here, and I’m not even doing that enough now. Like, I really feel like everybody listening. It’s true if you want to get involved in this and you want to, you know, start to learn. There’s no authority on the subject yet that I know of.
00:26:14:02 – 00:26:50:02
Richard Carthon: Like everybody’s learning. Like, we’re all like, Wow, it’s so cool to have this new thing that we can all absorb and learn. So I would I would spend the time. If you want to get into it, spend the time, I need this. Excuse me, I need to spend the time. I think we all need to spend some time. But it’s it’s it’s so cool. So I think it’s an opportunity whenever it doesn’t come along much in life where you get a huge opportunity, where people eyeballs are on something and nobody’s really been doing it yet, like the people that are the pioneers of this thing are way out ahead, probably.
00:26:50:04 – 00:27:03:25
Richard Carthon: And I’m just trying to figure out what’s going on in their brains. So I got to be on. I got to be in Twitter spaces. You got to be listening, you got to look at blog posts, you got to listen to to these kind of podcast, absorb as much content as you can.
00:27:04:23 – 00:27:35:14
Richard Carthon: That’s a great reminder. Uh, everyone go listen to that a couple of times. Knowledge is power, and it’s one thing to also know something. It’s nothing to act on it. And right now, from listening to this show, you know, multiple times, we’ve had a couple of really, really cool people in all kinds of spaces. And more frequently, we’ve had some NFT people coming into this space and continuing to say how early this is. So in the world of crypto, blockchain, yes, we’re a decade in. It’s still early in the world of NFTs and where this is at, even earlier, even earlier in this space.
00:27:35:16 – 00:28:06:29
Richard Carthon: And just like Peter was saying, there’s not a like a ton of pioneers in the space that are the go to. I know everything I can teach you everything. Here’s how you do blah blah blah blah blah. A lot of this is you can come in, learn this and then literally be an asset to a ton of people who just have no idea and won’t know for the next three to five years. And then one day will flip a switch and be like, I need to do this. And then at that point, you can have all the knowledge skills to help them along their way or or within your own thing or however you want to do it. So again, Peter, I really do appreciate that. I think that’s really, really good nugget. But again, man, like as we wrap up here, we’ve covered a ton.
00:28:07:06 – 00:28:13:21
Richard Carthon: I always like to finish on a high note with a final thought. What is a final thought that you want to leave with all the listeners here today?
00:28:15:22 – 00:28:19:05
Richard Carthon: A final thought, I mean, I’m always so I do this thing.
00:28:21:03 – 00:28:23:21
Richard Carthon: I got a couple of things while I just give you one, I guess
00:28:25:06 – 00:29:06:25
Richard Carthon: I wake up every morning. I do this thing called wake up and goals, and I tell people to get going. If you guys want to be into this space, you make a goal for yourself where you want to look, what it’s going to look like for you in a year in the NFT space or whatever it is that you’re going to do is we get twenty twenty two coming up. A lot of people do New Year’s resolutions. I New Year’s gets me going, but it gets me going. You know, that’s what I do. So I set goals because resolutions, I just feel like it’s a resolution. And in three weeks I’m going to be like, All right, I did it. It’s going back to my old habits or whatever. So I just am telling everybody, if you if you want to make some goals for yourself around NFTs or around crypto, around just multiple source of income, because that’s what this is.
00:29:06:27 – 00:29:12:02
Richard Carthon: And for many people, this is going to be their source of income. So it makes them goals for yourself to see where you can get it in your.
00:29:13:04 – 00:29:24:14
Richard Carthon: I was perfect, I think, as a final great thought. Peter, thank you so much for all the time you spend with us today. What are ways that people can connect with you? Learn more about your headshot crew, learn more about ship bangers and everything else.
00:29:25:01 – 00:29:47:11
Richard Carthon: The best way is through Instagram. I mean, I use Instagram on a daily basis and I answer all my DMs. Myself and I have a link tree there. If you hit my link in, my bio tells you everything that I got going on from ship bangers to my photography to the coaching program, to different contests that I have going on and stuff like that. So you can always get the updates there. Definitely. Instagram’s the best. It’s Peter, underscore Hurley.
