WTF is Web 3.0 & The Metaverse? Well according to all of the experts it's the next level of community & commerce in virtual and augmented reality. I know you are probably wondering what does this mean for your business, and I'm glad you asked.
As I started down the slippery slope of launching my NFT, I started to get a better understanding of Web 3.0 and what it would mean for my business. I know I don't want my business to be left behind and I don't want your business be left behind in the world Web. 3.0 either. Although some experts are saying that Web 3.0 is about 5-10 years out, I don't believe that. Just like I was able to launch an NFT in 30 days without knowing what the heck I was doing, I will be moving my business into the Web 3.0 and the Metaverse the same way. The reason I can do this is because of all of the amazing technology that is available right now. As a business owner you need to be thinking Web 3.0 now, on the consumer side it will probably take about 5 years in my opinion before most of the mainstream consumers to catch up, but when they do you already want to be in place and ready to do business with them. You don't want to be on the same track with them just starting out and trying to catch up to the business owners who decided to take the leap into the Metaverse now.
The first step in getting your business ready for the Web 3.0 is you must make sure that you have a website. Having a page on Instagram and Facebook is not considered a website. You need to have your own website hosted somewhere on a hosting site. Make sure that business objectives are clear, because this is going to be real important as you move into the era of Web 3.0 and the Metaverse.
As I share the steps in moving your business into the Metaverse I will be sharing the tools, techniques and strategies that I am using to move my business. The first thing I will be doing is updating this website with Web 3D. The way that I'm going to do that is to use a software called www.Spline.design. Now let me just say this. If you are not technically savvy that's ok, because you can always go to Fiverr and hire someone to do anything you need done. The key is to hire them. Don't sit back and hem and haw about you not being technically savvy, just hire the person and let them know what you need. If you're not sure about what you need just follow this blog and I will be sharing what I'm doing to move into the Metaverse and you can do the same based on your business needs.
The time is now. Join me as I move my business into the Metaverse and you do the same.
Until Next Time
Make It A Great Day!
Ugggg! My NFT Is Not Selling!!!!!! Now What?.
This a little bit disappointing to say the least, but I'll keep pushing forward. If I sell one NFT I will consider the collection a success. I knew going in that this may be a challenge, because I'm not a young white male or Gary Vee and my artwork isn't a crypto punk or a bored ape. As I did my research I noticed that this was the type of artwork that was selling, however I did see a woman's collection that was doing really well, but that was few and far in between.
I thought about starting my own discord page, but I don't have the time or the interest to manage that. I did tweet about my NFT collection and got some hearts back. I think I'm going to double down on Twitter. I'm going to go back to Fiverr and find people who have a huge Crpto or NFT following on Twitter to see how that turns out. I've heard that many in the NFT world hangout on Twitter. I'm on Twitter too, but it's my podcast that is syndicated there, I'm not there talking about NFTs, but this may have to change.
I have my NFT set to expire in 6 months, so I still have some time to sell some of the collection. It would be great to sell the entire collection. I want let the fact that no one has bought yet stop me from marketing the collection in every way that I can think of that's ethical. I knew that this wouldn't be easy, so I'm here for the long haul.
Stop by again to see what's happening with The Madam Butterfly NFT. By the way if you want to check the collection you can do so here https://www.MadamButterflyNFT.com. If you are stuck in your business and need help getting clear schedule a Clarity Chat.
Until Next Time

I know by now you've probably heard of this thing called an NFT and are probably wondering what the heck it is. The easiest way for me to explain it is to say think of an NFT like a collectible car or a baseball trading card. People love collectibles like art and all kinds of trinkets, so an NFT is that, but in digital format at the moment.
I invented a line of collectible dolls in 1999. They were the first plus-size fashion dolls to hit the doll scene in 2000. I ran that company for 5 years before I dissolved it and moved on to coaching other entrepreneurs how to start and run businesses. Fast forward to today, I decided that I wanted to dip my toe back into the collectible industry and launch an NFT and boy what the heck was thinking when I decided to do that?
Well I was thinking that this NFT thing looked exciting and fun. I thought that I would create some artwork from a picture of my Madam CJ Walker Tribute doll that I had gotten done and launch my very own NFT. Shoot, how hard could it really be, I thought? Well that was a month ago since I started my NFT journey and there were days I said to myself forget this crap. It's stressing me out. I was tempted to throw my NFT project on the backburner, but every time I attempted to do so, something would say try one more time.
So let me walk you through my journey up to where I am now in the process of about to finally launch. So the first thing I did was name my NFT Madam Butterfly. I wanted to use Madam CJ Walker's name, but I didn't want to run into any legal issues, so I just changed the name. I decided on using the word butterfly because I love butterflies and it made since. I had already launched a community for women in business called The Butterfly Squad. www.TheButterflySquad.biz. As I looked into the NFT world I had another idea for The Butterfly Squad that I will tell you about later after I actually launch Madam Butterfly.
The Journey Begins
Make It A Great Day
