Jeremy was also previously a moderator in the VeeFriends Discord because he was helping them solve a significant problem. Namely, curating the most important updates and in turn saving the community hours sifting through discord for the information.
This wasn’t his end goal, but rather the result of consistently listening to feedback, anticipating needs, and putting in the work.
He also recently joined WGMI.io as a contributor after being continually referred to as “the person” to report on VeeFriends.
Jeremy has been considered for positions at VeeFriends, and hopes to someday join their ranks. In the meantime, he continues to learn and feels excited to stay the course with JeremyKnows.
VeeFriends and the Sorcerer Scholarship have sparked an entirely new direction for Jeremy’s life.
"In these communities, it is early enough to stand out. If these communities are long-lasting, first mover advantage goes a long way. I get recognized now at events, people come and say hello to me." –Jeremy Hohn
Jeremy is constantly feeling support from his community, sometimes in the form of offering him access tokens for rare experiences.
One of these community gifts was an hour of tennis with Gary Vaynerchuk through a 1/1 VeeFriends access tokens, the Tennis Elbow.
While it was originally planned to be a tennis match experience, Gary was injured and instead invited Jeremy to the VaynerMedia offices to have a sit down in the office.
During the time, Jeremy asked if Gary would join as a guest for 5 minutes on his podcast, which ended up lasting 30 minutes as they discussed the upcoming VeeFriends Series 2 mint, new characters, and VeeCon.
A few months later, this same interview was shared on the GaryVee Audio Experience, which you can listen to here.
Jeremy’s story makes it clear that NFTs have given people the chance to reinvent themselves and help ignite deep interests for those who may feel lost, unmotivated, or as though they haven’t found their “thing”.
Until now, Jeremy has put in the work without expectation and taken risks by paying his bills through odd jobs and the sale of NFTs over the past year.
Looking ahead, Jeremy is working to carve out a space in NFTs that can sustain what he’s been offering the community these first 16 months while supporting him and his family.
