InvestorBrandNetwork (“IBN”), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company for private and public entities, today announces that Noble Drakoln, Co-Founder of BAND Royalty, the leading innovator of music-focused NFTs, recently appeared on Gamechangers LIVE, a podcast series putting a spotlight on individuals who are gamechangers in their fields and sharing perspective on their journeys, mindsets, struggles and successes in an effort to inspire and inform listeners.
The broadcast, hosted by Executive Coach and Speaker Sergio Tigera, is available for on-demand viewing on Gamechangers LIVE.
During the interview Drakoln discussed beginning his entrepreneurial journey at a young age, how he built a career in finance before he went to college and how successful people learn to deal with failure and loss.
“We all have varying degrees of success at different times. People kind of see you at the moment and don’t know anything about your past. We have this project, BAND Royalty, that we’ve started, but I was a commodities and futures broker, a hedge fund operator for almost six years,” Drakoln said. “I graduated high school early and me and a couple of buddies decided to buy our first business, a coffee house. That’s where I learned how to write a business plan, how to pitch investors and the like. We found the money to buy the coffee house, but unfortunately the deal didn’t go through. That taught me a lot.”
“We couldn’t buy a coffee house, so I started working at a local coffee house, and I ran into a guy who was a gold dealer. I became an assistant to him. I started learning about gold, and, at age 19, I was a Series 3 commodities broker,” he said. “The first six months were a huge struggle, because I didn’t know how to sell. But by the second half of that year, I was making $150,000 a year as a broker. That’s when I realized the power of sales. I ended up getting my degree in finance, but I got it because of optics. Your parents still want to see you get your college degree. But it didn’t change anything for me.”
“At the end of the day, I’ve had more failures than successes. What life has taught me is to forget those failures as soon as possible, and to pivot as quickly as possible,” Drakoln said. “Don’t get caught up psychologically or emotionally in whatever it was, because the moment you do, then you can’t see your pathway to success. You have to really understand that failure and loss are just part of the game.”
Throughout the interview, Drakoln discusses his background and experience in developing and offering non-fungible tokens (NFTs), the relationship between NFTs and blockchain technology and how BAND Royalty has created NFTs linked to the creative space.
