“The Awakening of Zen Doughboy” (2014). Paint on canvas. © Anthony Ware All rights reserved.

Overview

This NFT is a building block for creating generational mental wealth for underestimated founders, and making scientific research and funding for research more accessible and inclusive.

The ongoing research, report, and recommended actions in the Founder Mental Wealth Report are web2 and web3 public goods.

This NFT is 1 of 1. No further editions of this NFT or artwork will be minted. The image in this NFT is a photo of the original painting by Anthony Ware in 2014. The artwork is a PNG file at 2700 × 3624 pixels.

If the Buyer gifts the Perk using Option 2, they help an underestimated entrepreneur with their mental wealth. If the Buyer selects Option 3, they create the opportunity to positively impact the mental health and wealth of their team and improve key business outcomes.

Allocation of Funds

  • 50% - Anthony Ware, Principal and Lead Researcher of AWare Catalysts and Founder Mental Wealth, and artist of the painting, “The Awakening of Zen Doughboy.”
  • 18.75% - Ongoing Founder Mental Wealth research, publications, and collaborations
  • 18.75% - Fund to provide direct financial help to support individual underestimated entrepreneurs with their mental wealth

The Story Behind the Art

I created this painting during a workshop in Indianapolis, IN, in 2014. It was during a transformational time in my life in becoming who I am today. “Zen” refers to me embracing my spirituality. “Doughboy” refers to falling in love with myself and moving through and past my challenges with body image.

Several months after I created the painting, I was honored to gift the original physical painting to a close friend for the nursery room of her first newborn in 2014. As a result, the NFT doesn’t give the Buyer or the person gifted the sessions (Perk Option 2) any rights or access to the original painting on canvas.
