After talking to Gavin I quickly learned that his success as an artist wasn’t by accident. It was from his pure tenacity and drive to live life on his terms by learning, creating, experimenting, and relentlessly doing what it takes to win.
“Everyone always said, ‘Well, you should do something more practical.’ And I just didn’t care because it’s very simple: you just keep doing it until you’re there.”
Growing up, Gavin read every book he could find about celebrities and being financially successful out of fear that he would get stuck in a bad financial place. But it was when he discovered Gary Vaynerchuk that he finally found his person.
Gary inspired him to try the flip game, buying items at garage sales and thrift shops and selling them elsewhere for a profit. But one day there was a video with Gary V and Fewocious describing NFTs that changed Gavin’s trajectory forever.
Gavin’s is an amazing story that has an unexpected, full circle return of Gary V at multiple, impactful moments in his story, culminating with an unexpected, but all too fitting purchase of one of Gavin’s NFTs.
“When anything happens two times it means you’re on to something or you got lucky twice. It’s possible that you got lucky twice, but you’re probably on to something.”
This is a wonderful conversation and I’m so honored to be the one to help tell Gavin’s story.
