You Are Your Habits with Julien Smith

Chase Jarvis Photography Chase

Julien Smith is a long-time friend and familiar face on the podcast. I first brought him on in 2013 to talk about why not caring about what others think is a useful skill to have as a creator in any field (translation: he penned a LEGENDARY blog post called ‘the subtle art of not giving a f*$k’ – which went crazy viral and later inspired a best selling book by Mark Manson…). And now Julien is BAAACK…this time talking about both his best selling books (The Flinch, and Trust Agents) and…drumroll please… his latest startup venture called Breather – an amazing service the provides on-demand meeting and studio space all across North America, which has raised more than $100M to date. When I need recording studios for the podcast on short notice in LA or NYC? I use Breather.  A quick headshot where you don’t want to rent a photo studio for $3000. Yep, Breather again. $150 bucks. You get the picture. But more than anything, this episode is simply rich with a dose of reality that all of us creators and entrepreneurs need to hear: namely that we’re all in this together. That we all have imposter syndrome. That we all simultaneously […]

An audience of ONE is all it takes

QUESTION:  What if you only made work that YOU loved, and you were certain that you would be paid top dollar if you did…Would you do it?  Of course! Most sane creators / entrepreneurs would jump at the opportunity – and such is the topic of Srinivas Rao’s new book: An Audience of One: Reclaiming Creativity For Its Own Sake.  The problem is, so many of us are watering down our work making it for someone else. In fact, the path to our best work is digging deeper into who you’re creating for and what happens when you create art for yourself. In this episode we also cover… “If you’re going to take the time to learn to use a tool, take the time to make something with that tool…”  This is a fascinating POV I’d never heard before, but it keeps us creators in the building mode vs the procrastinating mode. How to take your art+career+future into your own hands…  Srini’s view is that we must put our focus and effort into the things that you can control. You can’t control follower count, you can’t control Facebook’s algorithms. You can control your creative process. If you focus on the process, you’ll […]

Today on the podcast we’re answering one of the most popular questions I receive: “how do I find my passion”. Yeah, not an easy one. Super tough! And if you’ve struggled with this or are struggling right now, this episode will help you find your way. In fact, my good friend Chris Guillebeau has spent years researching this exact topic and shares a formula that can help you unlock some missing pieces from his book called Born For This. This super short episode packs such a huge punch, I’m so pumped to share it with you! In this episode: Most people find their dream jobs and make dream careers by going down multiple paths and making lots of mistakes along the way. Don’t be afraid of taking a nonlinear path.

You can find all the ways that you can make a career doing what you love at the intersection of joy, money, and flow. If you’re thinking about giving up on what you’re working on, you must listen to Chris’ bonus tip at the very end. He challenges the ideas […]
