Say Yes, Figure It Out Later. Starting from the Start with Tyler Babin

“It’s impossible to move forward while staying the same”. That’s what motivated Tyler Babin, a 25 year old up & coming filmmaker, who hustled his way into his dream job only to leave it to pursue the riskier thing, an even bigger bet – on himself. I’ve had literally hundreds of requests over the years to have someone on the show who isn’t Richard Branson or Brene Brown or {fill in the blank star}…ie. host someone who hasn’t “made it big” and is, instead, on the come-up themselves…someone from within our very own community who has been listening for years, connecting dots, gleaning knowledge and is now taking major action on that.  Well THIS is Tyler’s story. If you’ve  followed my pal Gary Vaynerchuk, it’s likely you’ve actually seen some of Tyler’s work. For the last 3-4 years, he’s been a whirlwind tour traveling the world with Gary, shooting photo + video, creative directing projects at Vayner… and it all started right here on this show nearly 8 years ago.  This episode goes full circle, friends. Also – instead of the usual studio conversation, Tyler and I recorded the show while grabbing a burger & margarita just around the corner […]

Human Connection (+ let’s meet?)

Over the years, I’ve really fallen in love with the ability to share and connect with you through my social channels. Never before has it been easier and faster to create, share, and connect. In a digital age where it’s possible to live in our own little bubble, it can often feel technology is better at isolating us than connecting. What I’ve found though, is the opposite. I can think of the countless names I’ve seen in my feeds for years, and now with platforms like instagram (add me here), I can not only share my thoughts, ideas, and happenings 1-to-many, but we can chat 1:1 — almost in real-time. It’s like having the internet on my speed dial. On a trip to London, half-way across the world, many of you asked to meet up while I was there — so within a few hours of landing, we were able to find a place, invite whoever wanted/could come via all my social channels to meet at a small local pub. While I will always advocate being present in the moment and with those around you, digital actually does do a great job of connecting us too. Instagram in particular has […]

Today on the show we have one of my favorite comedians, Nate Bargatze. If you’re not aware of Nate’s work, consider this intro a gift – he’s on a rocket ship right now, one of the top up-and-coming comics in the game. After listening to our conversation here, you’ll want to check out his brand new NetFlix special that just dropped. He’s laugh-out-loud funny and simultaneously has great insight around following dreams and creating success rather than hoping it “happens.”  In our conversation we talk about his early life – how he found and decided to pursue his passion in the face of challenging odds (how many people become a standup comedian?), his earliest experiences of storytelling, and what it was like to have a father who is a magician and a clown. (It’s hilarious.) In this episode we cover a LOT… The difficulty of consistently creating good work and why consistency matters most The benefits of staying uncomfortable… The importance of life-long learning and community – to every creator.  Must haves. The power of saying ‘yes.’ The psychology of persistence and success – how to keep going when everyone else doesn’t see your dream. …and lots more Enjoy and […]

Personal + Career Reinvention with Jasmine Star

Can you believe this show has been running for 10 YEARS! Today’s guest was one of my earliest guests, and long time friend, Jasmine Star.

She articulates how to make that transition and gives us very practical advice that will add heaps of value to you. We also talk about … instagram strategy – she’s a master – and you should know all about her business socialcurator.com Mentors, leaders, and inspirations the evolution of a career, how to transition from being known / building a community as a one thing (like a wedding photographer) and re-shaping that […]

You Don’t Need To Be Rich To Live Rich with David Bach

Harnessing Your Human Nature for Success with Robert Greene

Today we welcome back on the show the 6x international bestselling author, Robert Greene.  Robert has had huge impact in my life with books like Mastery, 48 Laws of Power, and the 33 Strategies of War. And in this episode we go deep on his newest book – and my new favorite – The Laws of Human Nature, a brilliant consolidation of the various theories on human nature – how to better understand them and use them to grow. We dive deep into: You are a lot weirder than you think you are. WE ALL ARE in fact. We’re repressing so many sides of who we are – most often without even knowing it. We’re trying to stand out.  We’re trying to fit in. The stuff we repress and try to hide are like a stranger within us.  Knowing all this – and how to navigate it – gives us personal power. It it possible to harness our “dark side” for increased creativity, wisdom, strength and character? Robert argues that, not only is it something worth tapping into, it’s THE source of power missing in your life.

Diversifying Creativity with TONL

By working to highlight a diverse set of narratives from under represented populations, Joshua Kissi and Karen Okonkwo — two of Inc Magazine’s 30 Under 30 — are addressing a huge gap in the creative market.   Karen was at Arizona State University when she decided to start a blog for sorority women. It gained immediate attention. Yet, when a friend asked why there wasn’t any African Americans showcased on the site, she was defensive. As an African American herself, she thought – of course we do! But as she pulled out her phone and started scrolling through the site, she realized her friend was right. She had fallen into the subconsciously biased, racially one-sided trap. Desperately focused on change, she began to showcase all types of women of color, sexual orientation, and under represented groups on her site. But she had a sense she was not doing enough.   This work caught the attention of  the Ghanian-American fashion, lifestyle, and brand photographer Joshua Kissi, and together they co-created TONL a photography and media agency focused on creating images of diverse people and sharing their stories with the world.  Enjoy this inspirational, heartfelt and meaningful story of self reflection, discovery, creativity, and action, as […]

Do Something Different with Jason Mesnick

After a difficult divorce, Jason Mesnick wanted to rediscover himself, rekindle his sense of adventure, and try something new. That was his mantra. And it sparked an unexpected journey that pushed him into the leading role in the 13th season of The Bachelor. Though he presents himself as a “normal guy” he clearly has lived an extraordinary reality tv experience that so few of us have (and of course we talk about this in depth, how unusual it really was) — but also how in many ways it’s a journey that parallels ours…building a living and a life around the things we love. Jason is a sage when it comes to coaching us to our follow inner instincts, focus on what matters, and take chances to expand our lives in unexpected ways. I’m pretty sure this interview is a side of a reality TV star that few people have ever experienced. In this episode we also: Dig into the very unique world that is The Bachelor TV show. As someone who admittedly doesn’t watch the show (but I’m married to someone who does!) it was a fascinating and at some times head scratching experience receiving very honest account from someone […]

Creative Cockroaches, Standing Out + the Truth About Your Best Creative Work

A short while ago I had the great pleasure of taking the stage at the Seattle Interactive Conference with my dear friend and creative superstar Cal Mcallister (Founder, Wexley School for Girls + Paper Crane Factory) for a very pointed conversation on inspiration, unlocking your best creative work, and how the eff to stand out in today’s noisy, crowded market.  Hint:  it’s not what you think. IMHO this conversation oozes with value specifically because both Cal and I are:   a) lifelong professional creators who care deeply about making this easier for people who want to be more creative; b) we both took very non-traditional paths to find our respective successes – so that path YOU’RE on won’t seem all that strange; and c) are both are transparent AF about exactly how we’d approach it today if we were doing it all over again… Oh, and the audience / Q&A is always a favorite of mine at any public appearance –because so often we’re all struggling with the same things. A sample of other topics we cover…. Why “the middle” (aka where everybody ends up gravitating because they listen to “advice” and “best practices”) is the WORST place you can […]

Less Phone, More Human with Dan Schawbel

Let’s face it, despite being more digitally connected than ever before, we’re more isolated and lonely. The cure for this loneliness epidemic? Human connection. That’s why I am excited to have entrepreneur, best-selling author, and researcher, Dan Schawbel on the show. Throughout his career, he’s interviewed over 2,000 people from celebrities to CEOs to politicians and even two astronauts on the future of learning and working. He’s synthesized these conversations into tactical insights on how to make technology work for us (not control us) and foster a more socially connected, productive, and fulfilled career and life. In this episode: There’s no such thing as an overnight success. Dan shares his personal stories of rejection and failure with persistence and stamina. The dark side of remote working. While we glorify the flexibility and comfort from working outside the office, it also can contribute to isolation. Dan shares some strategies to combat this. We spend 1/3 of our lives working. Yet, so little of that time spent collaborating, negotiating, and communicating is spent face to face. Dan reminds us that simply having an in-person conversation is more effective than sending 30-40 emails.
