Starting a DJ Company at 15, Launching a Nonprofit to Help Kids Get Scholarships and Balancing Everything While Becoming a Doctor with Ethan Liebross

Back in 2015, at age 15 Ethan Liebross had a crazy idea to start a DJ and entertainment company. He worked at the local ice rink and had been DJing there since 14, but felt he could make more money and entertain even more people if he took it on the road with his own equipment. Ethan came to me with the idea in 2016. He asked me if I could MC the events and drive us there because he didn't even have a license yet. I had been into music for a long time, but this is something I had never done before. I agreed, we started booking gigs and to our surprise we ran an actual entertainment company in high school. Sure, there were some nightmare gigs - that's just being young and unaware. We were naive, but the experience shaped us and led me into a 6 year DJing career I still pursue today. On this episode, Ethan speaks about his mindset around starting the company, how the idea formed and what he learned from it. On top of that, he tells us how he balances a non-profit, medical school, authoring books and educating students all at the same time. I have a lot of respect for him and what he's accomplished at the ripe age of 21. He's garnered media attention with his non-profit, The College Prep Project: an initiative that brings college students together to help high school students land scholarships. Ethan will continue to do big things as he and his passions grow. I can't wait to have him on again!

Q Swervo 2 Years Later - Turning Stock Trading into a Full Time Job in 2 Years and How to Get Started with Investing at ANY Level
Q Swervo 2 Years Later - Turning Stock Trading into a Full Time Job in 2 Years and How to Get Started with Investing at ANY Level

Q Swervo is a trader, investor, mentor, teacher and founder of Tiger Iye. We fast forward 2 years to see where he is at now. I had Q on the show two years ago after he had been trading for a short time. He was making money from it, but not enough to quit his day job. On that podcast he told me he'd be able to quit his job, move out and build a life off of investing and now he's done it. On this episode we speak about Tiger Iye and how to start investing. Q breaks down the philosophy and psychology that go into trading. He also speaks about the reality of trading and if it's actually sustainable for most people. There are many emotions that flood your body when you're buying and selling stocks and Q speaks on the important of building a community around you to support you and help you as you go.

Buying and Selling Designer Shoes, Transitioning from Rap to Pop and the Impact of God and Religion with Sye Music
Buying and Selling Designer Shoes, Transitioning from Rap to Pop and the Impact of God and Religion with Sye Music

I met Sye in the studio at The Vault; Tyler Braddocks recording studio in Boonton, NJ. I was interning for free and barely able to pay my rent, but the artists I met there made it all worth it. Sye is a rapper and songwriter from Rivers Edge, New Jersey. He's built a fanbase over the last few years and began his career under the name Rightful Disciple before transitioning to 'Sye' in late 2019. The new name fits him well, and his versatility is apparent in his flows and even more so in his hooks. He's the type of artist that can leave you with a stank face after hearing the verse and later that day you'll still have the hook lodged in your head. Seeing the evolution of Sye and myself has been a rewarding experience. We had the opportunity to write, record and shoot a video for our song, "5 Fingers" that appeared on his first EP as 'Sye', titled "https://open.spotify.com/album/7fncdNbNskJc9j9z3vd21Z?si=KZvkM7blQa-1NDLWqllDYg (Everything in Between)." I suggested a hook, Sye suggested a beat and we came together to create something special. Hope you enjoyed listening to this episode as much as we did recording it! https://www.instagram.com/sye.music/ (Follow Sye Here) - https://www.instagram.com/sye.music/ https://open.spotify.com/album/7fncdNbNskJc9j9z3vd21Z?si=KZvkM7blQa-1NDLWqllDYg (Stream his EP Here) - https://open.spotify.com/album/7fncdNbNskJc9j9z3vd21Z?si=KZvkM7blQa-1NDLWqllDYg Links Below: _ Watch the Video Version on https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5yW2ZNS4Iq7ff_EeKe3HkQ (YouTube) @sullybop on Instagram Search 'BOPCAST' on any platform!

BopCast Has a Producer Now? Let's See What He's All About - The Producer Episode with Trett Shepherd
BopCast Has a Producer Now? Let's See What He's All About - The Producer Episode with Trett Shepherd

It's been a long time coming for BopCast. We've been interviewing folks for over 3 years and it was finally time to make it 'we' for real. Our sponsor, sodabeats.com was the first big change of the year and I'd like to introduce the second. As you may know, it takes a team to run this podcast. Our video editor Brandon has transformed the show with this ability to edit with multiple camera angles. Ryan Kelly revamped the logo, Matt Kane created the intro and now Trett Shepherd will be able to produce for us. Trett Shepherd is a salesman and musician from Kingwood, New Jersey. He ended up reaching out to me after I posted a few stories searching for somebody to help us out with the podcast. It's been a lot of fun getting to know him even more, brainstorming ways to improve the show and finally on this episode, sit back and have a conversation on topics I wished I could hit with other guests, but couldn't find a spot to fit them in. I hope you enjoy this wide ranging episode of BopCast with our new producer, Trett Shepherd.

Host of Bowhunter Chronicles Adam Miller on Growing a Hunting Podcast, Conservation, Philosophy and Varying Styles of Bowhunting
Host of Bowhunter Chronicles Adam Miller on Growing a Hunting Podcast, Conservation, Philosophy and Varying Styles of Bowhunting

Adam Miller and I met on Facebook - the place where all great relationships start in the podcast world. I had asked him about some tech he was using to switch camera angles and it led me down a road of discovery starting with his podcast, Bowhunter Chronicles. After listening to a few episodes I knew I had to have him on. Adam is a pharmacist by trade, but he and his co-host started Bowhunter Chronicles a few years ago as an outlet. They felt unrepresented in the hunting world and figured there needed to be a place to openly admit and speak about good and bad hunts as well as have the ability to talk with experts in the space. What started as a side project has now gained 10's of thousands of listeners, countless sponsors, a Patreon account and an intriguing weekly show to listen to whether you're a hunter or not. On this episode we speak about the stigma that surrounds hunting, why hunting is conservation, the thing you should never overlook when starting, and how Adam grew the podcast from the ground up.
