How do you go from side hustle to potentially making millions? Our friend Mike Winkelmann, the artist known as Beeple, has done just that by diving into the world of NFT’s to sell his digital art. What are NFT’s? And what makes them different from a traditional painting or art work? Are they right for you as an artist? Are they right for you as a collector? Chris shares his thoughts on Beeple’s meteoric rise in this new world, and what NFT’s might mean for both artists and collectors.
