Jameel Mohammed of The Meelypops Shop joined the podcast to teach Mike and I the ins and outs of selling trading cards.
Just like crop tops and mom jeans, collectible cards and other memorabilia are making a reappearance in 2019, and Jameel couldn’t be more excited to talk to us about it. How do you sustain a business selling collectibles? How expensive is your most valuable card? What makes a card valuable? Jameel breaks it all down for us and gets Mike thinking a little differently about his childhood collection.

ABOUT THE WHOA GNV PODCAST:
THE PODCAST BRINGING YOU BUSINESSES AND INDIVIDUALS THAT MAKE YOU GO WHOA!
I, Collin Austin, founder of New Scooters 4 Less and Repaint The Wall - Gainesville's Digital Media Un-Agency, and Michael Dees, CEO of New Scooters 4 Less, are out to bring you incredible and inspiring stories of entrepreneurs, businessmen and women, and other awe-inspiring leaders. Hear the fascinating challenges individuals have had to persevere through. Soak in the wisdom of talented men and women that have had the grit and focus to get to glory. Reflect on their life-altering stories. Join in and celebrate the wins with them (and us) as well. If it makes you go “WHOA!”, it’s on this podcast! Educate yourself and grow as we come together EVERY Monday at 8am to learn from the BEST.
We're out to accomplish 3 major goals: 1. Show off what makes Gainesville so awesome... Its stories and people! I want people outside of Gainesville to hear this podcast and go "Whoa! I want to go/move/build a business/etc. there! 2. Keep some of our Top 8 University of Florida talent here by showing them that Gainesville is SO MUCH MORE than a place you go to college! 3. Build as many connections within the community as possible! I can't begin to tell you how many people tell me, "I heard of that business for the first time on your podcast and now I'm collaborating/doing business/friends with them!" I'm inspired by the impact this podcast has already had and can't wait to see what the future holds! Join us!
WELCOME TO GAINESVILLE’S PODCAST.
Join us on the journey and listen on...
