Life’s Tough Media is pleased to announce the latest episode of our “Life’s Tough: Superheroes are TOUGHER!” podcast series. Hosted by Stephen Shamus—President and co-founder of ACE Universe—this episode features Zach Nadler, founder and CEO of VaynerSpeakers.

This Life’s Tough episode released on May 21th, 2021 and is now available on all major podcast networks under the Podcast Channel Life’s Tough.

Before he founded Vayner Speakers and became CEO in 2018, Zach Nadler worked with CAA – Creative Artists Agency. He had an opportunity to work with our host, Stephen Shamus, booking clients for various comic con venues. He sat down and talked with Stephen and Alex Rae, hosts of the Superheroes are Tougher podcast. They spoke about the influence of Superheroes on Pop Culture today… through comic books, TV shows, movies, and live events. They also touched on the way that social media has connected the dots for this industry. Sharing experiences between fans of the genre has become so much easier and rewarding through social media platforms. 

One thing everybody agreed upon – things change fast!  Photo ops are becoming a huge commodity. NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens), one-of-a-kind pieces of digital art sold on the open market, are the latest high-value trades, sales, and auction items. 

Turning their talk to the comic com shows and the unique experience these shows provide, they discuss the fact that not every celebrity comes to every show. Their advice to fans, don’t “Wait Until the Next Show.”  You may miss great opportunities! 

Steve mentioned that superheroes are all around us… ordinary people are doing superheroic things. Zach agreed and said that the people he regards as superheroes are single parents and teachers. He has great respect for these people and the work they do.
